    Pet Peeve- Articles spread out on multiple pages for no apparent reason.

    I’m in agreement with Doodbugboodles, I think most web surfers are more willing to scroll down to avoid having to load 12 different pages. Now, I understand once or twice, but 12 pages?

    As a way of solving the issue, just go to the first page and click the “print” link at the bottom of the page. It loads the entire article in one pane.

    I do have to say though, I had never thought about a few of the ideas, even though they do make sense.

  3. My family did the makeshift air conditioner thing when ours went out one summer years ago only we froze 2 liter bottle of water and duct taped them to the back of two fans. Placed so that the air would move throughout the house it actually got cold after a while and it was a hot summer too.

    I’d never heard of the spicy food tip or of making a compress using rice.
