Creating More Flow...From Your Showerhead



Recently I stepped into the shower, as I try to do every day (hey, I have three kids and two jobs, so if I get a day off no promises) and I noticed something was off. My usually comforting rainfall shower head was acting more like I'd walked into a slight drizzle than an actual rainfall.

My first reaction, honestly, was panic. "SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE WATER PRESSURE!"

Of course, I imagined everything from we didn't pay the water bill and it was being shut off to a waterline leak to my hot water heater had exploded and my basement was flooding...all in a span of about 10 seconds. Thankfully, none of those were the cause of my pitiful shower. The culprit was a buildup of deposits inside the shower head itself.

Even more thankfully, this common problem can be easily fixed.

Now, I am NOT what one would call a very handily person overall. I know how to hammer and measure, but I do those only when my wife instructs me to. But this fix is so simple, you can be even less handy than I am and take care of this issue yourself!

Here’s what to do that works:

* Fill a plastic baggie about halfway up with white vinegar. (The sandwich-sized ones are fine, but the quart-sized ones are even better.)
* Lift the filled bag up and over the shower head, submerging the shower head holes in the vinegar.
* Secure the bag with a rubber band or twist-tie.
* Let the shower head soak for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
* Remove the bag of vinegar and dispose of. You may want to gently scrub around the holes with a soft brush before turning on the water.
* Your shower head will be clean and ready to go. Just turn the water on and go!

5 Fights Couples Have When Buying a House

When my wife and I bought our home in the Northern Kentucky area, it was quite an experience. We had a great Realtor® with whom I am now privileged to work. I can only imagine the things he must have thought about us, showing up to look at houses with our two young boys, talking about if a room was big enough...what was that smell...why would they put the switch over here...

Ah, those were the days!

Thankfully, we didn't actually fight (that I remember) about anything considering a house. We both had a concept together of what we wanted, and a price range. And outside of those things, I didn't care as long as she was happy. No really, I didn't! As long as I could have air conditioning and hot water, I was good!

However, that is not the experience everyone has.

Today, I am actually going to share a link that will take you to Realtor.com. The article was written earlier this year by Stephanie Barth, a writer, and contributor to several publications. She took this concept of…

Get Your Debt Under Control

Today's post is one that was sent to me from a Christian website I regularly get things from. Debt is such a huge issue and it cripples so many from being able to like the way God intends, so I wanted to share it with you. Maybe today you could use the inspiration!

At the end, be sure to check out the author info and, if you'd like to know more, see her website!

I had a dog once who, when I scolded him, would run and hide under the bed. He knew he'd done something wrong, and he thought that by hiding he wouldn't get into as much trouble. I think he figured if he couldn't see me then I couldn't see him, and he wouldn't get scolded any more.

There was just one slight problem. He couldn't fit under the bed. Only his head and front paws were hidden but his back half was in full view. He had put himself in the worst possible position but since he had buried himself under the bed he didn't know that.

It's human (and critter) nature …

Actually, thats not in the Bible

I don't often have much use for CNN as a news source, but this story by John Blake is so dead on in its point on Bible illiteracy, that I can't not share it! Its a bit long, but worth every moment it takes to read and consider! DK

(CNN) – NFL legend Mike Ditka was giving a news conference one day after being fired as the coach of the Chicago Bears when he decided to quote the Bible.
“Scripture tells you that all things shall pass,” a choked-up Ditka said after leading his team to only five wins during the previous season.  “This, too, shall pass.”
Ditka fumbled his biblical citation, though. The phrase “This, too, shall pass” doesn’t appear in the Bible. Ditka was quoting a phantom scripture that sounds like it belongs in the Bible, but look closer and it’s not there.

Ditka’s biblical blunder is as common as preachers delivering long-winded public prayers. The Bible may be the most revered book in America, but it’s also one of the most misquoted. Politicians…
