Cooking Silver, Straps Needed, A new Bluetooth, And a New Router

Posted Apr 13 2012 12:00am
What a mess!

What a mess!

Tuesday, I made a big mess of the stove doing some stuff for mom. She had a bunch of Sterling Silver Jewelry that was severely tarnished, and she couldn’t even get the tarnish off with her special cleaner. Well I came to the rescue with an idea, a scientific idea to be done in a laboratory. Namely our kitchen, on our stove. I took a pot, lined it with aluminum foil and added lots of baking soda. Filled it up so that it would easily cover the Silver Jewelry that I would be placing into it, then began the fun! I dipped each item in as it was at a rolling boil, and it bubbled violently, the chemical reaction even causing a sulfur smell, like rotten eggs. Quickly enough in about 10 seconds of swishing the silver item around it came out like new! This is astonishingly easy and simple to do. So if you need to clean your silver, this is the way to do it! But make sure to clean up the ‘lab’ when you’re done in there! My mom made sure I cleaned our laboratory well!

Straps Needed

Straps Needed

Everyone by now should know I am a total addict to Belts, Straps, and anything that can exert pressure on me because of my autism. I find these things very relaxing for me because of my autism and sensory integration disorder. They are great stims. Don’t know much about my autism, I suggest you read my white paper , it hasn’t been updated in a while but still holds a wide variety of information, maybe I will update it if some of you E-Mail me with genuine interest in it. But anyway, Love Strappies, they are my favorite kind of straps. Wheelchair harnesses namely are Strappies / Strapples to me. :P Anyway I wear my straps super tight because it relaxes me in my  wheelchair . I also like to wear belts super tight on my body; In fact, I decided to get a few more belts for myself!

It was time that I got a new headset. And well Passover was upon us and all I got for finding the Afikomen was this Bluetooth headset. Watch next year it will be, “All I got for finding the Afikomen was this laptop.” Ha ha, yes it’s a joke I am really happy and appreciate this new bluetooth headset. It is ten times better than my old Plantronics Voyager Pro+ and I guarantee that I will Never buy another Plantronics product again, totally inferior quality to the Jawbone family of product’s I just wish that I knew that earlier. Oh well, I got this headset for free and gave my dad the other headset. Per his and my mom’s tradition of getting my equipment hand me down style. Heck sometimes they have to PAY to get the equipment, like in terms of phones. LOL

Happy to have it in my hand

Looks like any other Cisco Linksys EA3200 router right, well NO! I really was excited about getting this beast after Tuesday having Comcast come out and blame our slow internet speeds on our router. Low and behold, it indeed was the router failing, not bad for a 7+ year old router. But out with the old in with the shiny and new. This thing is blazing fast and will be much more reliable than our old router which is a damn good thing because that thing was giving me trouble a lot! Including very slow and unstable speeds.
