DID U KNOW? Winterize a birdbath: " Last winter was surprised to see birds still coming to visit the birdbath--but many days,layer of ice on top of the water kept them from getting a drink. when I mention it to my sister,she shared a clever trick: Before the weather gets too cold,toss a few clean tennis balls into the water basin. Then when ice begins to form in the bath,the wind will blow the balls across the surface of the water,breaking the ice into pieces and keeping the water from freezing over.

The iron's heat reactivates the glue on the self-adhesive tile,so pressing on it will cause it to stick back into place.
