Messy Microwave?

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 1/2 cup each of water and distilled white vinegar. Microwave the mixture for about 5 minutes, or until it boils. Leave the bowl in the microwave until it has cooled enough to handle. Wipe down the inside of the microwave with a sponge. The solution makes its easier to wipe off stuck on, splattered foods. Lemons can also be substituted for the vinegar.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
