Just Add a Pinch of Salt: Recipes for a Cleaner Home
We all know salt is delicious, and was one of our earliest preservatives, but did you know it can help you around the house, too? Here are just a few tips on cleaning with salt:

• Pour a bit of salt, followed by a few cups of boiling water down your kitchen drain once a week to prevent clogs or unpleasant smells.

• Greasy pan? Scour it with some salt and a paper towel before washing.

• Salt can remove grease from clothing, too. Just pour some salt on a fresh grease spot on to soak up some of the grease. Then gently scrub some more salt into the fabric and rinse before washing.

• Salt is a great way to remove coffee stains from pots and mugs.

• A paste of vinegar and salt can add shine to old copper pans and molds.

• Salt makes a great rust remover for getting bicycles moving again in the spring, or refreshing worn household objects. Make a paste using three parts salt to one part lemon juice.

• When your child is sick, salt can help clean up messy accidents. Sprinkle salt over the “throw up” and let it sit for five minutes to help absorb the wetness and the odor.

• Salt will also remove fishy smells from counters, cutting boards and refrigerator shelves.

• Soaking new pantyhose in saltwater can help prevent runs.

• Pour salt over a grease fire to smother it quickly.

Update on Baby Ryan

Saw Jenn today and she told me that Ryan is doing much much better. His color is really good. Saw more photos of Ryan today, he was looking so much better. Ryan's sister and brother were able to hold him today.

I went over to Chris and Jenn's today and visited while my husband helped Chris work on one of his vehicles. Finally was well enough to hold Kaylee...love being a grandmother or as I am called (Nana)....love it love it love it!!!!!

Hope everyone is having a really nice weekend...the weather isn't bad here, but can't wait till it warms up even more next week.

Ryan Thomas has arrived!

Yesterday on St. Patty's Day "Ryan Thomas" arrived in the world by emergency C-Section. He is however being treated for Meconium Aspiration & Pneumothorax. Mommy is very very sad and crying alot because the nurses won't let her hold her baby. They told her they didn't want him to be upset!!!! WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN, I ask!!!! Today while I was standing there outside the nursery, watching the nurse with baby Ry, she sneezed a really big sneeze in HER HAND, THEN WIPED HER NOSE WITH HER FINGER....and continued working on the baby without even washing her HANDS!!!! Don't think I didn't walk right down to the nurses station and inform them of what I just saw....Here is how that went...."I said, the nurse down in the nursery taking care of the baby....Nurse says, what baby...I said the ONLY BABY THAT IS DOWN IN THE NURSERY.....and she says again, what baby...I say, Baby Ryan....and she says again, what baby, we have alot of babies on this floor....I said very calmly, The baby in the oxygen tent.....Oh yeah she says so what....I said the nurse just sneezed in her hand then wiped her nose and continued to work on him....the nurse looks at me and says "Oh, that isn't good, I will have a talk with her!" DO YOU BELIEVE THIS CRAP!!!!

Any how, I just received a call from my Jenn telling me that they discharged Ryan and her and that they were on their way to Buffalo Children's Hospital. The people from Children's couldn't beleive that Jenn hadn't even been able to hold her baby yet, so they let her and Tom hold him....let me tell you...what a difference that made for both Jenn Tom and Baby Ryan. Jenn said the baby calmed right down...well of course he did...all he wanted was his mommy...What is wrong with hospitals today. Can you tell I'm heated over this, cause I am...but am very happy that Jenn and Baby Ry on going to be in good hands!

Baby Ryan is so cute as is Baby Kaylee whom was born on 02/27/2009...now him and little Kaylee will surely get to play together as they grow up. Kaylee is the fourth and Ryan makes for the fifth grandbaby for us...We are really excited to welcome these two beautiful gifts from God into our lives.....hope to be really busy this summer, playing with all the grand-children...I can't wait to hold them I haven't been able to hold either one yet cause of being sick, but am feeling much much better now.

Hope everyone had a

"For 'tis green, green, green, where the ruined towers are gray,
And it's green, green, green, all the happy night and day;
Green of leaf and green of sod, green of ivy on the wall,
And the blessed Irish shamrock with the fairest green of all."

Jenn was released from the hospital on Sunday. She is feeling stronger and would like to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers. The baby is doing good too! The nurse said he is probably going to weigh in around 7 to 8lbs. God willing when "Ryan Thomas" starts to try to come into the world the nurse are not going to stop him, they only had to before because of Jenn having phneumonia so badly. So we are all getting excited for his arrival.

Little Kaylee Lynn is doing great. Daddy says he gets up in the night with her to feed her so Mommy doesn't have to get up. He is such a great daddy. He says she sleeps really good. Mommy is doing good too. I think Little Kaylee is going to look just like her Mommy....and as beautiful!
