bookofjoe's Favorite Thing*: Apricot Sunshine Liquid Soap

Photo copy 2

Just happened on this stuff on Amazon the other day while I was looking for something else....

You know, my best friend, down in Houston, insists that I'm missing out by not getting out more and going to stores and seeing what's there.

He says there's no comparison to the experience I have online.

I agree.

But I think he's the one getting shortchanged.

Diff'rent strokes.

But I digress.

This soap is even better in use than it looks or sounds on the page.

Brings a wonderful scent and promise and memory of summer — apricots, ah... — to the coldest hearth.

Try it, you'll like it.

If not, let me know and I'll refund every penny you paid for it.

That's the bookofjoe way.

$2.49.

*OK, busted: my second favorite thing. #1's in the picture too. As any fool can plainly see.

Helpful Hints from joeeze: Quick & Dirty Mosquito Trap

Login

From Well Done Stuff!:

Mosquito Trap

1. Cut the top off a 2-liter bottle.

2. Invert the top cone piece and place it inside the straight part of the bottle.

3. Glue the two pieces together.

4. Add 1 teaspoon yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to a little lukewarm water and pour the mixture into the bottle.

5. Mosquitoes are attracted to your exhaled carbon dioxide — the yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas so mosquitos enters the bottle, thinking they will find food there....
