    LOL… my partner is so excited. Sort of a two-degrees-of-separation Not Martha link, as that’s her Metafilter question!

    She has a delicious Malaysian curry recipe on her blog now, if anyone is interested. :-)

    the glansa lysa is a plug in… hope that helps ;)

    It cracks me up to see Tiger Tacos getting some press! My neighbor invented them and I used their prototypes when I moved out of my apartment!
    Small world…

    p.s. this is my first comment. I ADORE your blog.

    Richard, don’t let your partner buy suspect furniture! I just went to a seminar about bedbugs for landlords and it was scary! (my husband’s property is dealing with them right now.)

    Not mentioned in the thread on metafilter is the fact that heat will kill bedbugs and their eggs. So a good heavy duty steaming or treatment with a heat gun will kill the evil critters.

    Thanks Vespabelle… but our metafilter question was the first one, about saving heat in a drafty apartment!

    re: glansa lantern. See my comment at the bottom of the AT page…don’t recommend it at all

    I use a rubber dishwashing glove to open jars. Slip it on your jar-opening hand, hold the jar securely in the other and twist. Voilà! The glove minimizes the pain caused by the friction of the lid on your hand and gives you a better grip.

    Although Lee Valley Tools ( have awesome stuff.

    I love my scale! It’s a MyWeigh and I like to use it to weigh flour and butter and any baking books that go by weight such as Rose Levy Beranbaum books.
