Pages

One of the many perks of having a Gmail account is that you can personalize Google's home page on your computer. For instance: mine has the date and time, a few headlines from Boston.com, my google calender, the horoscope of the day for Pisces and best of all, a few "How To"s of the day from WikiHow.com. Today I am privy to How To Care For a Donkey, How to Get Rid of Junk Mail, and How To Make Feta Cheese.

All good things to know.

And Every day there is a new batch of How Tos and each time my mind is blown, everything I ever wanted to know how to do is at my fingertips thanks to Google!

For instance. If I am ever in a bind and can't find a handbag, why I can just turn my bra into one thanks to these handy instructions.



Quite fetching, oui?

Or, if I had a few sim cards hanging around and was desperate for new earrings, WikiHow to the rescue !



Sometimes, I just don't know WHAT to do with all the empty bags of chips laying around. I often wished there was a way to make them into something fashionable to wear. Well today is my lucky day!



Really, the possibilites are endless. You could fashion a whole new accessory collection just from your trash bin and old undergarments.

I have a few ideas for my own WikiHows, some things I have learned in life that I think would benefit the masses. Such as "How to Open a Bottle of Wine With Only a Hanger and a Nail File". or "How To Make A Delicious Cocktail With Just Gin, Tap Water, And Condiments" In fact, I bet a lot of my friends have their own personal How-Tos that could greatly benefit the folks at Wiki How.

We should get on this.

One might wonder if the creators/writers for McGuyver are now employed by Wikihow *LOL*..

its easy:

1: use a metal nail file to chip off about 1/3 - 1/2 of the cork

2: bend the end of a wire hanger so it is straight and use it to push the cork into the bottle.

voila!
