Here's a quick home fix for a drawer front that's pulling off. Remove drawer face from drawer box. Cut a couple of lengths of quarter round the same height as the drawer sides. Hold them in place while you drill a couple holes through the sides and front of the drawer box. Dab some polyurethane glue (wood glue doesn't stick well to finished surfaces) on the pieces of quarter round before screwing them into place. Replace drawer front and it is as good as new!

You can't swim after eating, or you will drown...The old wive's tale that you can't swim after eating is not actually true - although you've probably heard your mother say it countless times. Cue the eye-roll and dramatic sigh over all those lost minutes in the pool. This myth assumes that after eating, the body diverts blood from your limbs to the digestive tract, depleting your arms and legs of enough blood to swim. While it is true that digestion requires extra blood, the body does not drain the limbs of enough blood to work properly. According to health officials, the worst thing that could happen from swimming after eating is a small, harmless cramp. This is only one of many rampant health myths that need to die.
It takes 7 years to digest a piece of gum... This ubiquitous old wive's tale probably comes to mind each time your gum loses it's flavour and there is no trash bin in sight. Performing a quick analysis of your options, you ask yourself whether swallowing this gum now is worth carrying it in your body for the next seven years. While it is true that the synthetic portion of chewing gum is indigestible by the human body, it does not just sit in your stomach for several years. Instead, your stomach periodically empties it's waste in to the small intestine, which soon passes it along to the colon. Within a week, the swallowed gum will emerge in your stool. Now you are likely wondering whether you should start swallowing your gum more often?
You've got more options than ever when mattress shopping these days with no shortage of brick-and-mortar and online-only retailers to choose from. Here are the factors you should consider when you're shopping for a perfect night's sleep.
1. Mattress construction: The most popular mattress types are inner spring mattresses, memory foam mattresses, and adjustable air mattresses. Each has pros and cons when it comes to durability and comfort customization.
2. Firmness: Mattress firmness plays a huge role in the quality of your sleep. Mattresses that are too firm or too soft can cause aches and pains, so it's recommended that you test a mattress for 10 - 15 minutes in a store before making a purchase.
3. Sleeping position; Your mattress should match your sleeping style (side, back, face-down, etc). You want a mattress that keeps your spine in proper alignment. For example, some mattresses are better for side sleepers, while others are better for back sleepers.
4. Size: It's not quite as simple as choosing between
a king and a queen mattress. You should also consider your height, as some mattresses are better fit for shorter people while tall people will want a longer mattress so their limbs aren't hanging over the edge of the bed.
5. Stability: For couples, you should consider how the mattress reacts when one person moves, so the other person's sleep isn't disturbed in the middle of the night.
