Pool Removal WebsiteHere is a website that documents one person's experience removing a concrete inground swimming pool. There are lots of pictures and other interesting information on the project.

There are couple of ways to remove a pool - complete removal or partial removal. Most people go with partially removing the pool to cut down on the expense. Poolremoval.net has some detailed articles on the process.

SIDS
Babies
The Sims 1

Could SIDS be caused by not 'burping' a baby?

In a word, no. I have studied every piece of information on this subject for five years now, and I have never heard of that. Generally the idea is:

1. The child is over heated, either by too many clothes or blankets, or the temperature of the room. They say to put the child in a sleeper with the footies and long sleeves, and no blanket. They should be on their back, so the child's body can release heat from the trunk area. Keep the temperature of the room the same as in the rest of the house, i.e. if you're comfortable so is your baby.

2. A "rebreathing" child basically suffocates, either conventionally by something covering the face, or the child breathes in his exhaled air and suffocates that way (rebreathing). To protect him from this you can put the baby to sleep on his back so he doesn't rebreathe. Also, the mattress must be firm. There should be no blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, or loose sheets in crib.

There is a lot of controversy about sleep sharing (sleeping with baby). You could roll on top of the baby, and there are pillows and blankets in the parental bed -- some possibilities of SIDS occurring. But I also read a study years ago about a parent's breathing possibly making the baby fall into breathing sync, thus helping to ensure the baby continues to breath as long as you do. There may also be something about your breath blowing into their face when you are sleeping together, and it supposedly forces air in the child making him breath.

There are mattresses one could buy with a fan inside it that does the forcing of air for you. Someone once said sleeping on a slight incline, there for the crib wedge. Personally with my two, soon to be three, I put them on a good mattress, on their backs, kept the temperature comfy, nothing was allowed in the crib but the baby, and no smoking was allowed in the house (if anyone still does that, it may also be linked to causing SIDS).

I was probably a little extra cautious and woke up all through the night, and could not go back to sleep until I saw the gentle rise and fall of their tummy that meant they where breathing. I think being vigilent, and educating ourselves is the only way we can save our babies from this silent killer.

P.S. Learn how to do CPR, please.

Sids by definition is the unexpained death of a seemingly healthy infant. As I see your answer I can only assume you have never experienced sids as you do realize how insensitive this answer.

I have a two year old daughther and my son would have been three months. I did everything you are reccomending and I knew CPR to, infact we live across the street from the hospital from the moment he passed out we got him to a hospital and he still did not make it.

You are talking good preventions, but you have to be aware these are not the causes of sids. Sids can not be defined and in my research. SIDS CAN NOT BE STOPPED.

Your baby can not die from not burping enough, but I suggest for the mother or father who asked the question talk to your town's local coroner or police department. You may find more comfort their then when you google. Everyone has their own opinions and it will drive you crazy and know you are not alone.

How do you block knit clothes to change the fit?

Changing the fit is best done by changing the pattern or the garment itself. There is some wiggle room where you can stretch or compress some areas of a garment during blocking, but these changes will not affect the over all stretch of the garment. In other words, if the garment is too tight it's going to stay too tight even after it's blocked. Blocking has more to do with smoothing the fabric, evening out the rows and stitches to make seaming easier, and getting the lines of the garment to lay nicely.

If you're really determined to try to adjust the garment through blocking instead of tailoring, figure out what dimensions you want it to be, soak the garment and pin it out in those dimensions to dry on a blocking board. Alternately, pin the garment to the desired dimensions and lightly steam it. Remember that as soon as the garment is washed, assuming it is made of a good wool, it will simply return to it's natural shape. If it's something like cotton it's going to stretch out no matter what you do.

First of all, there is only so much yarn in a project. You can block it most times by shaping the garment on a padded board and carefully placing pins to hold it into shape. Then use a steamer or steam iron above the garment to set your shape. You may want to steam it a little prior to placing it on the board so that it will be more flexible to work with. Then after pinning use the steam again. Leave the garment there until it is completely dry and it will conform to the shape you have designated. As soon as you notice that your project is stable remove the pins so you will not have the marks imprinted on your garment.

How much would a 1903 Springfield rifle that had scope mounts put on it be worth right now?

This question can't be answered without more information. What version 1903 is it? The 1903's, and 1903 A3's were mass produced. Are the scope mounts original or did Bubba mount it in the garage? Does the rifle have an original stock or an aftermarket stock. Is the barrel cut down? The 1903 Springfield tends to be a widely "modified" rifle where the original versions are worth much more than the "bubbaized" versions.

AnswerFrom what I've seen with the more modern market, Springfield M. 1903 rifles have been selling from $600-$1000, depending on condition of course. It also depends on the make such as the M. 1903A3, used by most American snipers in World War Two as well as the late 1930's and early 1940's U.S. Marine Corps. These rifles too are roughly the same price range but of course these rifles were also made into the sniper rifle versions you're talking about. I've seen ORIGINAL sniper versions of the M. 1903A3 sell up to $2300 but the ones who were converted by civilian means to take a scope mount are worth much less. These often go for about $750-$1200. What is the serial number first? We'll go from there. It could be original.

Is it a good idea to restore a Winchester 69A?

Refinishing is the kiss of death for a collector, but to a shooter, it may enhance the value somewhat. Since the model 69A lists at $125 in Poor condition and only $250 in Excellent (according to my not-too-far-out-of-date Standard Catalog), you can't do too much economic damage. I too, have a 69A that i received Christmas 1963. As a collectable, it has very little value. This rifle was not even serial numbered! I am going to have mine restored just because it was soething my late father gave me. So restore away! Jst find a good competent person to do the restoration.

Is dating a guy over the Internet a good idea?

No it's not a good idea. Why not try the old fashion way like meeting someone that perhaps one of your friends knows or some place you work. At least you can see them physically, know who they are, what they look like, what type of personality they have and if you really want to start a relationship up with this person. On the Internet it could be anyone and it's dangerous. Anyone could tell you lies over the Internet and be the exact opposite and it's dangerous. More young women go missing because of their Internet romances. Sometimes some of these men are out to recruit young women and police are literally tearing their hair out trying to get women to listen to the warnings of meeting on the Internet.

Of course I know there will be a follow up on my post with people saying that they have met the most wonderful person through the Internet, but the truth of the matter is the success of a happy relationship by this method has an extremely low percentage rate and only a very few get lucky.

NEVER give out your last name, you address, phone #, talk about your family or what city or town you live in. Be a mystery if you persist on talking to this person. If this person is serious and a good person they would have no problem wanting to meet your parents or family. Keep safe!

AnswerI've never had a problem with it, but then again, I'm far better talking to people on the Internet than I am in person. Sometimes it can be hard to get to know people in real life.

Does putting baby oil on the breasts make them grow faster?

Baby oil became linked to breast growth because in Chinese traditional medicine there are massages to help encourage breast growth and many women undertaking these massages also put baby oil on their breasts. However, the baby oil is used not to further help with breast growth but to protect the skin during massagng, as many women attempting these massage techniques will massage the breasts for a considerable time and such prolonged massaging could cause irritation to the skin. It is unfortunate that baby oil became rumoured to be itself a promoter of breast growth, when those that use it with breast massages see baby oil merely as a way of protecting their skin.

Can you get married on the Sims for computer?

Friendship is a requirement for Sims to get married. They have to have a relationship score of 70. Then it is safe to turn on the heat, by lots of kissing and hugging. The proposal action becomes available once the relationship score is met. In order for a proposal to be accepted, the potential spouse needs to be in a good mood. They can easily refuse the proposal just because they aren't hungry or need to empty their bladder. Once you are sure they are in a good mood, then propose. But even then, nothing is guaranteed. When the proposal is accepted the Sims will immediately have a wedding. They change into wedding clothes and that's it! The visiting sim will move into the home adding their assets to the bank account. The last name of the Sim moving in is changed. Children of the new spouse will move in as well, except if there is another adult at the original home. Once married, that's it! No divorce for Sims. They can, however, marry other Sims. Each Sim can have multiple spouses. A male Sim could have 7 other wives living with him, as long as he proposed to each in his own home.
