Useless fact.
Hi Folks,

My early evening plans got upset along with a cup of coffee. Fortunately, no school books or homework assignments got destroyed. I did, however, have to clear the table and put all the table linens in the wash. In other news, I have learned a few new, and mostly useless, facts. First off, coffee grounds can be used as a deodorant. (I tested this one, it was a surprise that it actually works.) Secondly, the myth that drinking coffee is a detraction from your hydration is wrong, as per my family physician. And, finally, infusing coffee into alcohol is most effective with coffee grounds, not beans. The beans look pretty, but don't have enough surface area for the coffee to impart its essence into the alcohol.

The coffee facts may be due to my frustration with trying to figure out how to get coffee stains out of the tablecloth. (Beloved has told me that he will work his magic on it and do what he can to solve the issue tomorrow. I don't know how, but my husband has this talent for getting stains out of anything. No matter what fabric or what is causing the stain, he can get it out. I try to get him to tell me how he does it and he just shrugs and says 'All I do is wash the laundry.' He can get old blood stains out of cotton. It is witchcraft, I say!)

I'll be around for chat readings until 8 pm eastern time.
