How to Make Greek Yogurt and Plain




Tressa Yellig, executive chef and owner of Salt, Fire, & Time, a community supported kitchen service, demonstrates how to make plain yogurt, and from there, Greek yogurt.
As Yellig explains, every culture has its own form of souring milk, and the practice of culturing dairy is one of the oldest forms of food preservation that exists. What's fascinating about yogurt is how many different textures and flavors develop from the regional differences within the strains of culturing bacteria that produces yogurt.

How To Draw a Face



Steps

  1. Step 1

    Draw head

    Draw a head by lightly sketching an oval. Place a vertical guideline down the center of the oval, then divide the head with horizontal lines into four equal sections. The upper section marks the top of the head to the hairline. The bottom section marks the chin to the base of the nose.
  2. Hold your pencil between your thumb and forefinger, allowing other fingers to rest on top of the pencil. This provides freedom of movement to draw.
  3. Step 2

    Draw eyes and nose

    Add eyes at the oval’s midpoint defined by the central horizontal line. The width of the eyes and the breadth of the nose are roughly equal. Draw the nose, including the nostril wings, ball, and bridge, with the ball sitting at the central lower section’s bottom line. Rest the bridge at the section’s top line. Use your vertical guideline to maintain symmetry.
  4. The ability to look closely is one of the artist’s most important skills. Study your model carefully to capture the correct proportions of the individual’s nose, eyes and mouth.
  5. Step 3

    Draw the mouth

    Add the mouth, positioning it in the center of the upper half of the bottom section. Add more fullness to the lower lip than to the bowed upper lip, and express your subject’s mood with the curve of the line between the lips.
  6. Step 4

    Add ears

    Draw ears as elongated C-shapes, positioning them between the top of the eyes and base of the nose. Refine the shape, depicting the individual structure of your subject’s ears.
  7. Step 5

    Draw hair, eyebrows and eyelashes

    Add hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes with loose hand movements, duplicating the direction hair naturally grows or falls.
  8. Step 6

    Draw jaw and chin

    Define the face shape by drawing a line angled inward from the ears to the jaw. A second line, again slanted inward, connects the jaw to the chin. Draw the chin line straight or slightly curved, depending on your subject’s chin structure.
  9. If you have a mirror, you’ll always have a model. Self-portraits are great for mastering the techniques involved in drawing faces.
  10. Step 7

    Erase guidelines and shade

    Erase your guidelines and shade the face for the finishing touch, using the broad side of your pencil lead. Shading creates depth and realism, and who knows? You might be the world’s next great artist.

  11. Did you know? Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the most famous painting in the world, is preserved in a climate-controlled case at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

How to stay awake at work


Learn how to stay awake at work with help from these tips.

 Step 1: Use light 
Expose yourself to bright light, preferably natural daylight, to remind your mind and body that you should be awake.  
Step 2: Drink water

Step 4: Keep cool 
Keep cool by walking in cold weather, turning on the air conditioning, or splashing cold water on your face.

Chew eucalyptus gum. A strong smell can wake you right up.  
Step 6: Use acupressure 
Massage your neck and the backs of your hands to improve circulation.  
Step 7: Listen to music 
Listen to up-tempo music. Nothing soothing or relaxing, but something that really gets you going.  
Did You Know? 
Humans sleep less than other primates, like chimps and baboons, who sleep around 10 hours per day.

How To Make a Creative Valentine




Steps

  1. STEP 1

    Give them a message in a bottle

    Give them a message in a bottle: Age a white piece of paper by brushing it with cooled tea and setting it on a piece of waxed paper. Once it's dry, write a love note on it, roll it up, tie it with a ribbon, and stick it in a clean, corked bottle. Hide it for your love to find.
  2. STEP 2

    Let them puzzle it out

    Make a jigsaw puzzle out of a favorite photo: Glue a photo that's at least 8-by-10 onto a thin piece of cardboard; trace puzzle pieces on the back; then cut them out with a craft knife. Smooth any rough edges with sandpaper, and present the pieces in a gift box.
  3. STEP 3

    Personalize a box of candy

    Personalize a box of candy by writing messages like "I love you" and "you're hot" on adhesive-backed paper and sticking them onto the bottom of each candy's brown-paper cup.
  4. STEP 4

    Create a calendar

    Take a calendar, cover each month's picture with a photo of people, places, and things your partner loves, and mark days that are special to the two of you – along with "mystery holidays" throughout the coming year when you'll surprise them with something special.
  5. STEP 5

    Make a set of playing cards

    Make an adult set of playing cards by taking a regular deck and assigning a sexy favor to the same cards in each suit – with aces being truly wild. Then invite them to join you for a provocative night of poker.
  6. About 44 percent of all American households plan a Valentine's Day "date night."

How to Increase Push-Ups by 400%|US army basic training


No doubt about it in basic training you're gonna gave to do a lot of push ups so you're gonna want to get your push up count as high as possible before you ever meet your drill sergeants. Let me show you the way to do that. You can increase your push up count considerably with this quick and easy routine. First thing you want to do is you want to do some jumping jacks to warm up your body, ok. Just a few. If you can do 25, 30 great. Jumping jacks are simple just like this, ok. Now once your body is warmed up this is the routine you'll really have to do to increase your push up count. The first thing you're gonna wanna do is do diamond push ups to exhaustion and when I mean to exhaustion I mean till you literally cannot push yourself off anymore, ok. And a diamond push up is when your hands are on the ground and it looks like this it's making a diamond. Alright, starting position your arm is straight gonna come down as far as possible gonna push yourself back up. Now again work to exhaustion. Then I want you to wait 30 seconds. Do a normal push up where your hands are normal length. Shoulder width apart, ok. Again you're going to exhaustion. And I'm gonna tell you the reason you're gonna go in this order in just a few minutes. Now we're gonna do wide grip push ups. So your hands are gonna be even farther apart then the normal grip of course. Nice and wide. So in between each of the diamond, the normal and the wide grip you're gonna be taking a 30 second break, gonna be working each to exhaustion. All of those three exercises is one set. You're gonna wanna do three of those every other day and if you're used to where you can do those three exercises without any problems do four sets then five sets then six sets however long you have to go until basic training. Now here's a tip when you're doing diamond push ups you're working your fast twitch muscle fibers in your triceps. When you're doing wide grip you're working your slow twitch muscle fibers in your chest. You're building up your chest your arms and your triceps all on one where you do each of the three variations of push ups. So if you could do twenty push ups before you even start this exercise you should easily be able to do 80 without stopping after you've done a few weeks of this exercise.

- Treseme Heat Tamer Spray
- Pantene Curl Defining Scrunching Mousse (Discontinued)

HOW TO: Super Clean Your Windshield





We demonstrate how to make the windshield of your RV or car cleaner and clearer. We'll show you how to improve the clarity of the glass and improve visibility.
------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE: A viewer wrote to say that he experienced some areas of scratching after trying this. I've never heard of it scratching before, so I just did a little Googling, and while there seem to be some people who question using steel wool, others swear by it. Some also think you should never us a razor blade on glass, and others do it all the time. One suggestion was to use wet steel wool (of course it will then rust, so pitch it afterwards). Another mentioned buying something called "Poli-Flex Rubberized Clayblock" for cleaning. Although I cannot guarantee that scratching is impossible, many people who've tried steel wool since seeing this video have been thrilled with the results. Either way, proceed slowly and with caution and at your own risk.
------------------------------------------------------
After a little time goes by, every windshield gets a little hazy. That goes double for autos that are towed right behind a large motorhome. Using our toad (towed car), we show you how to use fine steel wool, Rain-X and Invisible Glass to make your view just a little bit clearer.

Although our car's windshield has a lot of little nicks from over 9 years of being towed around North America, we still want to keep it as clear as possible. Regular washing can't remove the fine dirt that gets into the pores of the glass, so we use a little detailer's trick that we learned years ago: 0000 steel wool. While you'd expect that steel wool would scratch the glass, it's exactly the opposite. Just like furniture makers use extra-fine steel wool to rub out the surface of the wood after each coat of stain, it polishes glass the same way. Everybody we've told about this little detailing trick seemed really surprised that steel wool does not scratch glass.

NOTE: We mention using fine 0000 steel wool in this video. It is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE, and care should be used in storing and using it. To see our video demonstrating how to start a fire using only steel wool and a 9-volt battery, click here:

Be sure to confirm that all methods and materials used are compatible with your particular RV or automobile.

RV Geeks offers basic DIY (do it yourself) RV service, repair and maintenance tips and tricks from full-time RVers who have been handling most of their own maintenance since hitting the road in 2003.

RVgeeks is proud to be affiliated with RVtravel.com.
http://www.rvtravel.com

While we're not RV technicians, we're very mechanically inclined and have learned a lot about RV systems over the years. We handle most of our own minor service, maintenance and repair work on our 2005 43' Newmar Mountain Aire diesel pusher. We also maintained our 2002 39' Fleetwood Bounder Diesel during our first two years on the road.

We meet lots of newer RVers who are eager to learn some basics about maintaining and caring for their rigs. After more than 8 years on the road, we want to share what we've learned (some of it the hard way).

We hope our experiences can help other RVers go DIY, saving some time, money and effort, while experiencing the satisfaction of a job well done.

We do not pretend to be experts on any particular RV topic, and mostly know about maintaining our own rig. But lots of things are the same on RVs in general, and diesel pushers in particular.
