POW bracelet

I got one and don’t think I was 16. I was in high school though. Still have it in my jewelry case. I put it away when the metal started to fatigue where it was bending in order to tighten it. ...

Dawn, for sure

I second Dawn. It has never failed me. Be sure to use a toothbrush or similar to work it in well. Air dry if a second treatment is needed. I’ve only had to do that once - and the shirt had already...

Vacuum Sealer

We got ours at Cabela’s. Very happy with it, no problem getting bags or rolls for it. I liked that I could get regular or commercial grade. The regular is fine for leftovers or short term storage,...

Coverage of Electoral College Certification

Thanks for the responses and your research.
