As adults, we lose a lot of the magic of life because we stop doing the things we did as kids. Next time a sudden cloudburst floods the streets with runoff water, grab an umbrella, leave your shoes at the door and walk barefoot in the rain. (This is probably easiest in a paved suburban neighborhood.) You'd be surprised at how much you can "feel" through your feet - changes in water temp & speed, soft silky mud. It's like wading in a brook...and because it's so short-lived, it's all the more fun.

1.Deter ants. Sprinkle salt at doorways, window sills, & anywhere else ants sneak into your house. Ants don't like to walk on salt. 2.Drip-proof candles. If you soak new candles in a strong salt solution for a few hours, then dry them well, they will not drip as much when you burn them. 3.Deter patio weeds. If weeds or grass grow between bricks or blocks in your patio, sidewalk, (con't) 432
or driveway, carefully spread salt between the cracks, then sprinkle with water or wait for rain to wet it down.
