Peel me a garlic.
There's one secret I've stumbled on to that a lot of people don't seem to know. There's a unique method of preparing/chopping garlic that makes it significantly easier to remove the skin. Take a large, wide chef knife and crush the clove of garlic on a cutting board, then the skin will come right off and you can continue chopping the clove.
Best Ways To Clean
Turning old books to new.
My friend and I know a famous author and often give autographed books as gifts. Because many are out of print, this means we are in the position of giving used books. How to make them spanking clean? Any book jacket or cover with a bit of a sheen will clean up easily be gently rubbing with Soft Scrub bathroom cleaner -- be gentle, work in a circle, and do not saturate the paper. Then wipe the whole surface in large strokes to a bright new shine. If the book has an odor, load the inside with baking soda, leave it overnight, then shake it out thoroughly.

Best Ways To Get An Education
Do Your Work Fast.
One thing I learned in grade school is that the faster you do your work, the more free time you'll have to draw or read while everyone else is still working. However, some teachers purposefully jump on people that finish early and make them do extra work, which isn't fair, so sometimes you have to fake being slow. Sad but true!

I don't have a religion, but I do believe in a higher power. The way I connect with this higher power is i try to be happy and do what is right for me. I know there has to be purpose to life, otherwise we won't be here, that's comforting for me to know that I'm not purposeless.
Best Ways To Accept Mortality
As I get older (in my 50's), I find that I'm not as glib as I used to be about death. It's true that I picture it as a release of energy that will free me up from the limitations of my personality. But I have to really keep that in mind as I watch friends and reltives age and die. I have to keep balancing my sense of impending freedom with the sense of loss I feel when I realize we won't all be together in the physical realm for much longer.
Best Ways To Celebrate The Holidays
Stay At Home And Cook.
With the recent down-turn in the economy our celebrations have been changed. We used to buy a lot of gifts and travel during the holidays. We now stay at home and cook special foods.

Best Ways To Be Romantic
Declare A Secret Place.
My partner and I are both very busy professional people leading somewhat beleaguered lives. For family reasons, we are not yet able to live together. I call her garage our secret place -- we arrive home, no one knows we are in there, the phones don't ring there ... I began joking about hanging Mistletoe in there for the holidays. On line I found real Mistletoe dipped in gold and I bought a piece. We hung it from a magnetic hook attached to the door opener above the car. Now when we pull in she leaves the moon roof open, we look up and rejoice at being under the Mistletoe -- and we kiss, of course, then sigh with contentment in the secret place.
Best Ways To Be Creative
Create Your Own Versions Of Advertised Products.
I am a homeschool dad and creativity is very important to me. Often when we see an advertisement or item in the store, instead of purchasing the item we think of a way to create one at home. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, but it is always a fun experience.

Best Ways To Grow Plants
Know its likes.
I think perhaps the most important thing to know about growing indoor plants successfully is to find out what a particular plant likes. Read up on the plant on the web - does it like dry or moist soil; does it like full sun or shade; does it go dormant in winter, so you will know it's done that and not keeled over permanently? Many a cactus or succulent has rotted from too much water, and many an African violet has fried from being put in the blazing sun in a window.

My in-laws and my parents don't get along, so it makes things difficult when it comes to the holidays. Because of how far we have to drive, we can't go both places on Christmas, so we visit one of them on Christmas ever instead. We alternate each year, and everybody is fairly happy!
Best Ways To Coach A Team
Football: Teach Tackling.
I played football for most of my childhood. My favorite moment was when one player was afraid to tackle another, and the coach put him up against me. He told me to teach the kid how to tackle, and sent me at him. I demolished the other player and it felt great.

Best Life Lessons
Food For The Hungry.
I was at a fast food restaurant a man told me he was hungry. I told him I would'nt give him money but would buy him a meal. I gave him the receipt and he just walked out like he was disgusted and did'nt take the food. My heart was in the right place so I still felt good.
