Wilburn: Make family mealtime special

For many American families, shared mealtimes are less and less common. In a recent national study commissioned by the White House and the YMCA, one in four parents reported that their families eat together four or fewer times per week. In that same study, one in 10 admitted that they eat only one or no meals per week with their children.

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.

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!
