I have just found this fantastic site full of such snippets of information - in fact they have some absolute gems!
The different sections which are covered on this site are: Food, Living, Outside, Play, Technology and Workshop
For instance, if, like me, you enjoy a spritzer (wine and soda) of an evening, then this may appeal to you:
For a simple room spray, that uses an old spray / perfume spray bottle, and a few of your home grown lemons / oranges / limes and some (of your precious?) vodka go to: http://www.instructables.com/id/Super-Citrusy-Room-and-Linen-Spray/
This site even has 30 Uses for Aluminium Foil - some are good, some are downright ridiculous LOL
And, if you should want to build an aquaponic strawberry tower, this looks like quite a cool idea:
Or, if you have access to empty milk / bottle crates (I'm thinking those in Terlingua might be able to use this idea):
Or finally, how about this idea:
A perfect way to use all those thin branches when you don't have a wood fired stove or barbecue :-) I can see this working brilliantly with the wood from the black wattle trees which are abundant in our area.
There are literally thousand of pages / ideas on this site, and could fill many happy hours of web browsing, when you have the time. Would love to know what ideas you come across that appeal to you... (and a hint - when you've had enough browsing for one day, but aren't finished the section yet, save that particular page to Google favourites - that way you won't have to go through pages and pages to find out where you left off, like I did...!)
