Geodesic dome connector. I have only built one dome, and that was back in the youth of my carpentry career. There were three of us building it, which was a number that worked well with the project. We prefabricated all of the panels, and then assembled it. It was large, with a 20' radius. I appreciated all of the geometry, amd trigonometry that I had studied. It was fasciating as it came together and quite beautiful. McC by neva

When transitioning to natural personal care alternatives, one of the biggest struggles can be finding a deodorant that actually works. This was something that I personally came up against – and after trying ‘all natural, crystal stick’ deodorants that just-didn’t-quite-cut-it, I started doubting the existence of an all-natural and effective deodorant. However, over the past year I’ve been trying out new products – and I can happily say that they do exist! by neva

As longtime DM readers know, my Monkees fandom is not casual. It runs pretty deep. So it came as quite a surprise to me to find out that not only was there a box set of their 1969 Instant Replay album, it came out a long time ago. There’s even been a subsequent box set and I hadn’t heard of that one, either. I’m also friends with Andrew Sandoval, the ace producer behind all the amazing and lovingly compiled Monkees’ releases. How this slipped past me is a mystery, but thanks to Jason Elzy... by jewel

One of the most appreciated gifts from my bridal shower was a laundry basket filled to the brim with Windex, Febreeze, toilet bowl cleaner, laundry detergent, napkins, etc. You name it, it was in there. Eventually, you need all those things. And they are so expensive to buy at the same time. This gift helped me out so much. Like I said, super appreciated. And any new home owner will adore the pretty penny saved here. by cheryl

I loved my Nintendo DS. While mine was also pink, it certainly didn't look this cute, but I used to play it quite a bit when I was in high school. It was a fun way for me to wind down and relax, and I had a lot of games that required brainpower, so I was learning at the same time. by kaye

DO YOU BELIEVE IN COINCIDENCES?  1.) On September 11 2001, 2000 employees who normally worked at the twin towers did not turn up for work. They all happened to be Jewish! And no, it wasn't a Jewish holiday. 2.) The owner of the Twin Towers, a Jewish man who came to be known as “Lucky Larry”, did not go to his office that day either, and neither did his son and daughter! Coincidence? Because they knew what was coming! by kerri_posts

"Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated., When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind." Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley 1925 by jasmine

The flower-filled garden connects Elizabeth’s abode to her parents’ main house. And it’s her parents, at least partially, she has to thank for her career. “I worked for an interior designer here in the summers when I was growing up,” she recalls. “My parents said, ‘You have to get a job!’ and my mom helped find it for me. At first I hated it, but when the next summer came around, I went back. I stayed with it, and I ended up really loving it.” by annabelle

Seinfeld's Productivity Secret? - "Don't Break the Chain"  - "I'd heard about it but never really bothered to find out what it was or how it worked. When I finally looked, I realized that if I devoted 15 minutes per day to each one of my desired tasks I'd make some progress, and that would be better than no progress at all." Step by step instructions on setting up and using the plan. Looks promising. by love clothing

Philosophy writing requires you to strip away the fluff in writing and really get at the core of a theory or argument. I really was not sure how this skill may translate to other areas of my life but being able to pick out the important things in a business situation was a skill that came up on my Career Leader assessment. by daisy

Homemade Basil Butter: Very easy recipe with great flavor. I through all ingredients into a blender and mixed that way. Worked fine and little clean up. Mine didn't come out as green as the photos but it was just as good. Be sure to pull out of fridge awhile before serving since it tends to harden up. by tblack4ever

An no nasty chemicals like store-bought! by kathrine
