What does STYLEZ think?

I got this email today talking about little known uses of common household products! Some of these most of us know or heard about, some you may not have! Try it out at your own risk, but hey most of them won’t hurt to try!

That is what STYLEZ thinks, what do you think?


Did you Know.......................????

Kills fleas instantly...Dawn dish washing liquid does the trick. Add a few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to avoid skin irritations. Good-bye fleas.  

Did You Know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately-- without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional "pain relievers."

Did you know that Colgate toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns.

Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.

Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 Tablespoon of horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil, for instant relief for aching muscle.
Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-- even though the product was never been advertised for this use.

Honey remedy for skin blemishes .. . Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.

Listerine therapy for toenail fungus. Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again.

Easy eyeglass protection... To prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of clear nail polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.

Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer ... If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly.

Smart splinter remover. Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue.

Hunt's tomato paste boil cure ...cover the boil with Hunt's tomato paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.

Balm for broken blisters... To disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine. a powerful antiseptic.

Vinegar to heal bruises ... Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.

Quaker Oats for fast pain relief... It's not for breakfast anymore! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.

Twit-Bookin 4 Being An Entrepreneur vs Employee! Which is more challenging?

I was recently checking out the Facebook page of a fellow entrepreneur and he posted the following question:

For every year of being an entrepreneur, it is equal to 3 years of having a regular job. Is that true? What do you think?

At first, I was a little confused on what the statement meant. Was it referring to stress level, time spent working, money being made, etc? So, luckily 4 or 5 other people had already given their take on the subject, so I knew what I wanted to say! I figured the statement was 2 fold, as an entrepreneur your work day (and usually cash-flow) is 3x shorter, but your stress level and decision making impact is 3x higher!!!

What does STYLEZ think!

I find money to be dependent on how well you are doing as an entrepreneur versus how well you do as an employee within your career. As a network engineer (my 9-5) I make more money than I pay myself as a Technology consultant (my business). However, my business has made more money (sales) than I do from working for others. On the flip side, I figure that my business can pay me more if I can grow it more, attract a stronger customer base, and retain more repeat and return customers (yes there is a difference,

As for the time, again, that is dependent on your 9-5 versus your business. I find that most of my 9-5s were just that, 40 a week and done! But because my business offers so many services and products, I can work 12, 16 even 20 hours in a day! In a good week, I can put in 48-60 hours, but the great thing about your business (especially if you have good employees) is you can always take a day off whenever you need, when there are no pressing projects.

Finally, as for the stress level. I find that if you are making decisions as an employee which impact, not only your job or project, but the jobs of your co-workers or the financial future of your employer, then it can be just as stressful as the menagerie of decisions you make for your own business. The funny thing is, I found my last job to be relatively more stressful than my business just because I had to think, act and make decisions on so many levels that I impacted things heavily when it came to the outcome. If I made a decision about a server product or software solution, then it would impact the number of employees the company hired, retained or released, the requirements the company placed on certain vendors and partners, and ultimately the financial outcome from quarter-to-quarter, year-to-year. I can do that with my business as well, however, I have yet to make such an impact on a client as large as the company I once worked for. So again, it all depends on what you do, because if I was the janitor or the coffee machine guy, I may not have had such an impact on that organization. I would only be responsible for so much.

So with anything, weigh your options, are you ready for what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Has your career or education prepared you for the challenges? If not, you may want to get better prepared. If it has, then you may want to consider, especially in this economy, the opportunities, the rewards and impact on society that you can make, as a small business owner!

That’s what STYLEZ thinks, what do you think?

Twit-Bookin 4 Google SearchWiki! Customize your search results!


SearchWiki lets you customize your Google Web Search results by ranking, removing, and adding notes to them. You'll see your changes whenever you do the same searches while signed in to your Google Account, or until you decide to undo them. You can also see how other users have tailored any given search results page with their own notes and changes.

How to use SearchWiki

Here's how you can rank, remove, add, and comment on search results:

  • Like a certain search result?
    Click Like_it to move it to the top of the page. This result will appear at the top whenever you do the same search in the future. We'll add this marker Move_up next to it so you'll recognize it later.
  • Don't like a result?
    Click Don't_like_it to remove it, and it'll remain hidden whenever you do the same search in the future.
  • Know of a better webpage?
    Click Add a result at the bottom of any search results page to add a page that you consider relevant to that search. Type the URL in the box, then click Add. When you do this search in the future, you'll see the page you suggested at the top with this marker Move_up.
  • Want to comment on a result?
    Click Comment to open a text box and type your comment. You'll see it the next time this result appears for any of your searches. Comments are a great way to save and recall any thoughts you had or notes you took about a particular page.

Your rankings and comments are associated with your Google Account, so they affect only your search result rankings. A listing of your changes is visible on your 'SearchWiki notes' page, which is visible only to you.

Check out our video (English only) to see SearchWiki in action.

Learn more about SearchWiki

Do I have to be signed in to use SearchWiki?

Yes. To see the changes you've made to a given search result the next time you do that search, you must be signed in to your Google Account. If you aren't signed in, you'll simply see standard, unmodified Google Web Search results.

How can I undo changes I've made?

Here's how to undo changes made using SearchWiki.

  • If you'd like to return a result you've promoted to its original position, click the down arrow next to the result.
  • If you want to restore a deleted page to your search results, click the Show them link at the bottom of the results page (next to 'You have removed results from this search'), then click Restore.
  • To delete a comment you've made, click the Delete comment link.
  • Finally, if you added a new page to a set of search results, you can remove it by clicking the Don't_like_it next to it.

Want to hide SearchWiki controls?

If you prefer not to see the SearchWiki controls, you can hide them from the search results page by visiting the Google Preferences page. Hiding the controls doesn't delete your preferences; while you're signed in to your Google Account, your favorite sites will still appear at the top, and results you've deleted still won't show up.

Follow these steps to hide the controls:

  1. Visit the Google Preferences page.
  2. In the SearchWiki section, check the box that begins 'Hide the ability to share...'
  3. Click Save Preferences.

If you want to turn off SearchWiki for just a search or two, you can always sign out of your Google Account for that search.

Can others see my rankings, deletions, and notes?

The SearchWiki notes page that summarizes your rankings, deletions, and notes can be viewed only by you.

Is my email address displayed to other users?

No. Other users who view your SearchWiki notes see only your Google Account nickname. (Note that you can see your email address in the top right of your screen when you're signed in to your own Google Account.) You can edit your nickname by clicking My Account in the top right corner of the screen while you're signed in. Learn more about Google Accounts.

How do I report inappropriate or offensive comments?

While viewing any comment, click the thumbs-down next to it to rate it as bad. Click the Flag as inappropriate content link to report a comment as inappropriate. A Google team will review the comment and, if necessary, take action.

How do I share my feedback with you?

Have a suggestion on how we can improve SearchWiki? Take our survey (right now, it's available only in English).

You can also share your feedback in the Web Search Help Forum.


I am searching the internet for information all the time. Who isn't? Well, I use Google primarily and pretty much exclusively (with the exception of "security searches" or when my Flock browser shows a result from Yahoo since that is its default quick search source). Up until now, I have always wished that I could remove certain results from a search, especially when I bookmark a search that I need to refer to regularly.

Well, Google has answered my prayers (how did they know what I wanted, oh yeah I guess somebody was thinking the same thing, LOL)! This new feature is called SearchWiki. The funny thing is, I noticed indications of the SearchWiki functionality a couple weeks ago, but because of Google's clean, non-obtrusive design, I was not bombarded with this feature! This is the reason I use Google, its got hundreds, if not thousands of GREAT and useful features, however the smart designers at Google are nice enough to keep them out of the way. I think that is why most other advanced search engines fail to appeal to people, because they are too cluttered and confusing.

Anyway, back to SearchWiki, as you can see above, it offers many cool features that allow you customize your search results, and enhance the searching experience like never before. Like I said, there are times when I am using a search result continually and have to refer back to it for whatever reason, there are usually some results that just don't fit, or don't offer any value to me. Now Google allows me to hide those results, move more important results to the top of the page, and make comments on results! And its all attached to my Google online account, so no matter which machine I use (my laptop, my PC, my server, my wife's laptop, etc) I will have the same customized results when logged into my Google account!

Well, the next time you do a search, log into your Google account and start using SearchWiki, you will be glad you did! And by the way, if you want to know more about other features and services Google has to offer (and why its the #1 search, saas and cloud service in the world), then visit:
