Sanding and dressing an old armchair This week's DYI and recycling project has been sanding and dressing an old armchair from the 50's.

Fire cider, a wonderful health threat

Have you heard of Fire cider? A wonderful health threat with a lot of tears in it. Originally the recipe comes from the UK and there are as many varieties as there are families.
