Thompson: Duct tape serves as an able protector

OK, here's your weekly duct tape tip. If you're going to be working with fiberglass insulation, you need to wear gloves and a long-sleeve shirt. In addition to that, wrap duct tape around your shirt sleeves and connect them to your gloves. By doing this, you'll keep glass fibers from getting on your wrists and irritating them. Trust me on this one.

Myers: God’s simple truths comfort better than human reasoning

As you well know, we've had some real weather excitement over the last week or so. Stormy weather always brings about a trying time in the Myers household. The reason is because Cole doesn't like thunder. In fact, it terrifies him.

Thompson: Make popcorn for one in a paper bag

Here's an interesting tip that you've probably never heard before. You can cook regular popcorn in the microwave without having to buy the more expensive microwave popcorn. Simply put a small amount of popcorn in a paper lunch sack, fold the top down twice and then put two staples in the top to hold it in place. (No, the two staples will not cause the microwave to explode. The mass of the two staples is so small that they're not affected by the microwave at all.) It works like a charm!

Thompson: Welder’s gloves stand up to serious oven heat

If you do a lot of cooking in the kitchen, you need this: A pair of welder's gloves. I'm serious. Don't waste your time with the low-quality pot holders and oven mitts. Welder's gloves are designed for extreme heat and are seriously durable. You can find them at any of the home improvement stores and they're cheap.
