Little did I know that the job of cooking batches of spaghetti sauce does not finish with the cooking part, canning spaghetti sauce is a whole another part to it. It is important to can it properly if you want it to last for a long period. I say rather than collecting jars that go empty for months, buy a pack of air tight cans from a wholesaler and save money and effort. These cans are disposable so you can simply toss them in the bin once you are done.

Also, they look more professional and give the sauce a much required store brought look. If you kids are fussy eaters and suspect that you are always trying to make them eat their greens (like mine), then this would be a great idea to get them to eat home made sauce disguised using the cans and you can also slap some labels to make it look more authentic. Whether you go for proper cans or the jars, I think this is a great way to secure all the hard work that goes into making the sauce in the first place. Also, this way you can conveniently share it with family and friends.

Morning Sunshine

Aug 17, 2013

Isn’t it nice to wake up in a good mood because nothing, even the stinging light of the sun, has ruined your sleep? Thanks to your curtains – if it wasn’t because of it, you would have staggered your way to your window because of the irritating sunlight hurting your eyes.
One of the best types of curtains for bedrooms is bamboo beaded curtains. It doesn’t have to be heavy yet it’s not so light at all – the fabric is just fine to suit your preference to give you this tropical morning that’s still good to sleep with for five minutes more.

Also, its fabric allows you to have your privacy you want in a not-so-warm way. The tendency of having thick curtains in your room is to turn your whole space in an oven-like heat during hot afternoons if you don’t have those air conditioning units to live with. Yet, with the beaded curtains, you don’t have to suffer the suffocation just to hide the details of your room from the perspective outside.
Always remember that in making your house beautiful, you may do it also in a way you can avoid too much cost at the same time.

Garages

Jul 6, 2013

Am sure this word is not familiar to most people, especially those who don’t own personal vehicles. I will try to make it simple to understand. It is a tool that closes and opens garage doors. Many of these tools are operated by using switches that are often found on the wall of garage. Others use remote controls which the owners carry. They are classified into: Electric opener and remote control opener.

Remote control

It is an amazing wireless garage door opener first invented and produced by two US laymen during the same time, one in Washington State and the other in Illinois. Both had no knowledge of what the other was doing. The earlier designs were easier to use and comprised of a simple receiver and a transmitter.
The subsequent versions of this tool were a little complex. For instance the third stage used a frequency spectrum range that rated 100-400 MHz Most of the receivers/transmitter relied on rolling or hoping code technology.

Electric opener

This model was created in 1926 by C.G Johnson at Hartford City, Indiana. At that time it did not become popular. It emerged popular when it was offered by the Era meter company in Chicago after the 2nd world war. The design was also simple.
This most recent of this type is the jackshaft opener. Basically it is composed of a motor which is attached to a torsion rod, a rod that causes the door to move up and down when the rod is spanned.
