Happy Birthday Reba!!

Today is Reba McEntire’s birthday!!  So I thought I would play one of her many songs.  Problem was choosing one!  So I picked this one.  But she has so many great songs that I’m gonna make this a Reba weekend.  Hope you enjoy!
Baxter’s blood test results came back and they were perfect!!  In fact, he is doing much better today!  I’m keeping him on anti-imflammatories for the next two weeks…… doctor’s orders! 
Baxter 6
I’m also keeping Bonnie away from him!! 
Did this seem like a fast week to you?  It seems as if Easter Sunday was two days ago!  Well ok, I have read your posts so I know that a few of you will disagree!!!  Maybe it’s because I got NOTHING done!!  I may add to this post later……. or not! lol  If something remotely exciting happens I’ll let you know.  Maybe my redneck neighbor will pull some crap!!  There’s always a chance!!
WD-40!!  (Public Service Thingy!)

Yes, WD-40 – I thought that you might like to know more about this  well-known product.

When you read the "shower door" part, try it.  It’s the first thing  that has cleaned that spotty shower door.  If yours is plastic, it works  just as well as glass.  It’s a miracle!  Then try it on your stovetop…
It’s now shinier than it’s ever been.  You’ll be amazed.

The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes  from the project that was to find a "water displacement"  compound. They  were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40.

The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their Atlas missile parts. The workers were so pleased with the product they began  smuggling (also known as "shrinkage" or "stealing") it out to use at home.

The executives decided there might be a consumer market for it and put  it in aerosol cans. The rest is history.

It is a carefully guarded recipe known only to four people. One of them  is the "brewmaster." There are about 2.5 million gallons of the stuff manufactured each year. It gets its distinctive smell from a fragrance that is added to the brew.

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you.

Here are some of the uses:
~Protects silver from tarnishing
~Cleans and lubricates guitar strings
~Gets oil spots off concrete driveways
~Gives floors that ‘just-waxed’ sheen without making it slippery
~Keeps flies off cows
~Restores and cleans chalkboards
~Removes lipstick stains
~Loosens stubborn zippers
~Untangles jewelry chains
~Removes stains from stainless steel sinks
~Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill
~Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing
~Removes tomato stains from clothing
~Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots
~Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors
~Keeps scissors working smoothly
~Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes
~Gives a children’s play gym slide a shine for a super fast slide
~Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on  riding   mowers
~Rids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises
~Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to  open
~Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close
~Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards and vinyl bumpers
~Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles
~Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans
~Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons and bicycles for easy   handling
~Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running   smoothly
~Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools
~Removes splattered grease on stove
~Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging
~Lubricates prosthetic limbs
~Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell)
~Removes all traces of duct tape
~I have even heard of folks spraying it on their arms, hands, and knees  to   relieve arthritis pain.
~Florida’s favorite use was "cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers
~The favorite use in the state of New York — WD-40 protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.
~WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a LITTLE on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time.

It’s a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just
that purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or
lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.

~Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately, and stops the itch.
~WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
~Also, if you’ve discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and  dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick  spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! Lipstick is gone!
~If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the  moisture and allow the car to start.
~WD-40, long known for its ability to remove leftover tape mung (sticky label tape), is also a lovely perfume and air freshener! Sprayed liberally on every hinge in the house, it leaves that distinctive clean fresh scent for up to two days!

~Seriously though, it removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor!  Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn’t  seem to harm the finish and you won’t have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.

~Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly!
Use  WD-40!

I hope you all have a GREAT weekend!!

    Reba is my least favorite country singer.  I had to say that, I just couldn’t keep it inside.  ;o)   I remember when she first started and she went on and on about Charlie (who she was married to at the time) being the rock that she leaned on, ya da ya!  It didn’t take her long to find another rock.  Plus she tries too hard to get that Tammy sound and she  can’t quite make it.  I still luv ya though Bob.  LOL

  5. nodope says:

    A well known formula in the equipment refurbishment business WD-40 will indeed clean and lubricate just about any surface safely. Just don’t mistake it for PAM, tastes kinda funny.
    Glad to hear Baxter’s ok and it’s good to here from you my friend, please take good care.

  6. Sandra says:

    I didn’t realize it was Reba’s birthday.  I’ll have to listen to her music today, and this could be a reason to have cake. sb

  7. Jude says:

    I’ll have to have a listen when things have quieted down here…whenever the hell that will happen…….next year maybe? lol
    I’ll have to remember the WD40 for the bug guts on my car bumper this summer!  Nothing look grosser than zillions of kamikaze bugs on a white car!!!  hehe
    Take care 🙂

  8. CAROL says:

    OK keeps flies off of COWS!!!??? what the ??  oh boy I have heard it all.. I wish it would rid our neighborhood of SKUNKS!! heheh!!  I changed my space so check now and see if you can get in. I was having trouble too. I will have to try the WD on shower doors.. but the scent gets my allergies started so I may not do the whole door!  Have a great weekend!  : )

  9. Ice says:

    Linking to your blog, if that is okay…

  10. Twila says:

    Great post Bob!  And so glad to see Baxter coming around again!  I chance my Space so go try it and see if it works ok for you.  Let me know if it doesn’t.  Also, while I was at it, I got my newest entry up.  I think you’ll love it!  Hope you and Mrs S have a great weekend!

  11. Tracie says:

    Reba is one of my all time favs. , but um Bob i’m hearing Sawyer Brown — which I love too, but just hope you were not confusing the two.  LOL   Have a great Saturday!

  12. ♥ Aimee says:

    lol…you neighbour would just tell you that if you want things to stay use duct tape…and if you want them to move use WD-40…
    *~*   :o) if you don’t have a smile to give today…  :o) I will give you one of mine…  :o)   *~*

  13. J says:

    All is well in Georgia and, I’m pleased to say, Bob updates have finally resumed! Must be the WD!
    Thank God and rocket science.

  14. J says:

    PS: I usually ride with the windows down and the radio off so I miss alot of music. Reba’s sounding alot like Sawyer Brown at the moment.
