When grinding or cutting glass with a machine that uses coolant, add 1 part anti-freeze to 10 parts water. The anti-freeze will help keep the diamond blade and bit cooler. It will lubricate them as well. You will get more life out of the blades and bits.

How To Take Care Of Your Dog

  » Pets


Don't mix wet & dry dog food. The dog will gulp down the food so fast that he doesn't take the time to chew up the dry food. They can become constipated, get gas (phew!) & mess up their digestive system. This can cause your dog a great deal of pain.

If you feed your dog wet food, mash the food down. Dogs are impatient, they gulp their food down too fast. By mashing it down, they can only get a little at a time so they will have to work a little to eat. This will help out with their digestive system.
