Toilet tissue roll placed over or under?

According to the patent for the toilet paper roll, the correct position is over. It seems to me, however, that an even better way would be to have it come out of an inverted box where pulling on one sheet would partially pull out the next sheet without the need for a roller - the way that some paper towel dispensers do.

Can you revive an adiantium fern?

If it is not totally dessicated and dead, what I would do is get a small bottle (2 oz. or 4 oz.) of a product called superThrive at a local garden center or nursery . Not expensive, maybe $7. u.s. for the smaller size. Depending on the size of the fern, put it in a container/bucket and put enough water in the bucket to cover the roots and some of the foliage. If necessary, put a weight of some kind on top of the plant to hold it down in the water. Then put 1/2 teaspoon of superThrive in the water, and mix it thoroughly. (if you like, you can put the superThrive in the water first, then apply to the fern). A small amount, a drop or two only, of a dish soap like Dawn will help the water and the superThrive get into the plant's leaves and roots.

Let it soak for 24-48 hours, then plant it and keep it in a cool area, no direct sunlight but bright light. If it is going to survive, you will see new leaves emerging from the base within a month or so, perhaps sooner. When you do, carefully cut out all old, dead leaves down to the base. Depending on the condition of the fern to begin with, this can be done before the treatment is applied.

superThrive is a plant medicine-enhancer-invigorator, not a fertilizer. Do not fertilize this plant or any plant under stress. Only after it is showing new growth, would I apply a mild (1/2 strength) dose of fertilizer along with another application of superThrive in the water for the plant, on the leaves and the roots too.

I have saved many plants, large and small, using this technique. Good luck! :o)

What is gilt brass?

Quite simply, brass that has a gold wash over it. Vermiel = gold over silver.....Ormolu = gold over bronze....dore = gold over brass. Commonly this was used on drawer pulls, brass feet, and many other metal accents on furniture, mostly so that the brass would not have to be polished...the gold always stayed bright and shiney. This is also a common technique on costume jewelry...thus the brass will not turn green when it touches your skin....until the gold is worn off, or polished off. A very common mistake...gilt surfaces should not be polished....mild soap and water does all the cleaning required...anything more harsh or abrasive only removes the gilt finish.

How do you replace a ceramic wall mounted toilet paper holder that fell off the wall?

scrape out the old thin set that held it in clean up the area where it came out and use more thin set to adhere it back into the space.

*Reads like the answer presumes this is set into the wall. If it is not, but was instead attached to the wall surface, clean off the base and use PL Premium to re-attach it to the wall. This will work even if the wall is tile, but may need some support until the adhesive dries (packing tape will suffice). If you use Tuck Tape as I once did, you will have great difficulty removing it from tile. Regardless of which way it was mounted, ensure that the reason for it falling off is not due to moisture causing the surface to deteriorate.

How old is a mcculloch pro-mac 5000 av chainsaw and are they good saws?

I have owned a McCulloch Pro-mac 5000AV since 1996 and it has served me very well. I have paired this saw with a Husqvarna 55 (purchased in 1997) for significant woodcrew efforts (downing and cutting dead trees, cutting fallen trees, cutting delivered logs) over the last 13 years and both have been extremely reliable. Both saws have significant anti-vibration designs that work quite well.

What percentage of people show for a party?

It depends on who you invite really. There is no real way to measure what percentage may actually arrive.

If you invite people who don't like you particularly, it's less likely they'll take the effort to come.

It also depends on what sort of things you have at said party.

Key things are things like dates, if people aren't available on a certain day due to a prior commitment then they are less inclined to arrive.
