Interesting Reading- Guestblogging-Living on Mars-Guava health benefits

Remember my Guestblogging post for Lettermo? Well it is now up on the Lettermo site

I was listening to a podcast the other day and Josh Richards was on Conversations ABC Radio. The project is called Mars One and is privately funded for ethical reasons.

We have grown up with Guavas in Fiji. I also have a guava tree hanging over the fence intruding in my little concrete garden. The bats make a huge mess when they eat the guava and either vomit or have diary on our concrete. But this article tells me I should make tea with the leaves because of its healthy benefits. This years fruit is very slow and small so i dont think I will get anything out of the fruit.

Interesting Reading - Postal wonderers

So seeing as its Lettermo month I thought this postal story was awesome.
Letter with a map gets delivered such is the dedication of some postal workers to get the job done.

I have a postal story similar to share but will  have to get the envelope first. this came from a penpal. he had just moved from an isolated town to the city. His story is amazing how he lived off the land.
Australia Post you rock #austpost

Great ideas to save money includes the following:
Reseal A Freezer Bag
Save Your Drain
Make Your Own Stylus
Make A Fast Funnel
Sharpen Your Scissors

Clean Your Pan
It may seem strange, but crumpled up foil can actually help you do your dishes! If you have a pan with stuck on residue, give it a good rub with a ball of foil and watch the grime rinse away.
Rub Off The Rust
You don't need any dangerous chemicals to get the rust off your barbeque. All you need is a sheet of aluminum foil. Crumple it up and start rubbing, the rust should come right off. 
Loose Battery?
Help it fit snugly into your electronic using a small ball of foil. You can also wrap the entire battery in foil, but this works equally well.

Roast A Turkey
Slow cookers are among the most versatile appliances in the kitchen. Not only can you made delicious soups and sauces, but you can even roast a bird! The trick to getting a perfect roast is aluminum foil. Start with several crumpled up balls of foil in the bottom of your crock pot, then add your chicken or turkey. Head over to I Believe I Can Fry for step-by-step instructions.

Ditch The Dryer Sheets
Instead of using dryer sheets, try the foil trick instead. Wrap a few tennis balls in aluminum foil, then throw them in with your wet clothes. Not only will they help keep the static out, but your clothes should dry quickly too! The best part is, you can use the same foil wrapped balls over and over again! Head over to the blog I'm A Lazy Mom for all the details.
