Seriously?? They wouldn't report it? That's rich! (no pun intended)

Apparently, some of them actually do. That's according the CRA representative being interviewed on the news...

hahaha ... that's cute. Hope it works for you. I know it does for me and for others who have tried it. Quite amazing.

So ... here's another for you to learn ...

If you add about a tablespoon of sugar to the pot when you cook cabbage, B sprouts or any of the other "gassy" veggies, it will remove the gassiness.

And another ...

A sprinkle of salt on the cut side of melons (watermelon, cantaloupe, etc) sweetens it.

I'll have to try that! I've found that holding my breath or drinking a glass of water from the other side of the cup doesn't work too well and nobody can ever scare them out of me..

I find all hiccup cures are hit and miss dependent upon the person. The one that works for my daughter is a teaspoon of sugar. The one that works for my son is a teaspoon of white vinegar. :smt102

I learned the excitement that true happiness exists within...locking gates!

I've never seen a Recreation Officer so happy as I was installing lock boxes onto gates! I can see the reasoning behind it (bush party's and concerned cabin owners), but he was happier than...Well, it was great! :discodance:

You can't pick mulberries. You harvest them by laying a sheet on the ground and shaking the tree, the ripe ones fall right off.
