Thompson: Keep duct tape in first-aid box, too

Duct tape has a number of medical uses - I'm serious. Here are two examples. First, when children get chicken pox, some parents put mittens on their children's hands to keep them from scratching. Wrap duct tape around the end of their mittens to keep them from pulling the mittens off. Second, use duct tape and plastic garbage bags to keep casts dry when you're taking a shower.

In today's economy, everyone is well aware of the housing slump. If you are trying to sell a home right now, improving the home's curb appeal is a great idea. And for those planning to stay in their homes for a few more years, why not make it more inviting and enjoyable for you and your family?

Thompson: Good luck peeling that backward banana

I love debunking old tips. For example, there have been e-mails going around for years stating that the best way to peel a banana is from the bottom. The tip states that by doing this you don't get any of the strings. Baloney. You get just as many strings as if you'd peeled it normally. Word of caution: most of the chain mail e-mail tips I've gotten over the years have been bogus.

Thompson: Timer will quiet your digital video recorder

The digital video recorder, also known as a DVR, is one of the greatest inventions of all time. It allows you to record multiple TV shows at the same time and even allows you to pause and replay live TV. TiVo came out with the first DVR in 1999. Today you can get the DVR functionality from your cable company or satellite service. A dilemma that a lot of people have is that they have a DVR in their bedroom but it will wake them up at night when the device's harddrive either turns on or shuts down. If ...

Myers: Mix and match doesn't work with God

Chloe and Cole are special. Obviously I think they are, or I wouldn't bore you with stories about them week after week. But they're special for another reason: they're hybrids. Half of one thing, half of another, all of neither.
