Here are a few helpful hints:

Oh, how the world has changed…remember putting your (grand) kids’ art on the refrigerator? Well, thanks to your smartphone you can keep them all in a digital art gallery. Check out Artkive (free) http://www.artkiveapp.com/ KidPix (free) http://applaudable.net/. and ArtMyKidMade (free) http://artmykidmade.com/. You can even turn those little treasures into note cards and postcards.

Didja know? The best day to buy shoes and kids clothes online is on a Wednesday. Sundays are best for swimsuits, according to Mark Di Vincenzo’s new book, Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon. His other book Buy Shoes on Wednesday and Tweet at 4:00 offers this piece of advice: Gas stations typically don’t change prices until between 10AM and 12 Noon, so be sure to get gas in the morning if fuel prices are rising, but in the afternoon if prices are declining. Huh, go figure.

 


Bond. James Bond.

If you are a gotta-get-it-gadget-kinda-guy or gal, here’s a great one for you from Pivothead http://pivothead.com/.

 

You can make hands-free videos while looking cool in these shades. With the accessories you can send the video and watch it right on your smart phone. Boating videos, anyone?

After baking a cheesecake, turn your oven off, but leave the door ajar for 30 minutes or so. For your patience, you’ll be rewarded with a silky-smooth, creamy consistency.

Ladies, here’s a way to stay stylin’ even if it’s raining.

Can you guess the connection: blueberries, blackberries, and radishes? How about gray hair. Yup, this from Wikipedia:

According to recent scientific studies, low levels of catalase may play a role in the graying process of human hair. Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced by the body and catalase breaks it down. If catalase levels decline, hydrogen peroxide cannot be broken down as well. This allows the hydrogen peroxide to bleach the hair from the inside out. 

So, what to do? Increase your levels of catalase, by eating lots of blueberries, blackberries, and radishes. Yum.

As always, keep your hints coming.
