Swimsuit for a 15 Year Old Girl?

I am a swimsuit designer and I would suggest that you try a bandeau top, or an underwire top, with a simple, bikini bottom. Both of these styles are really in vogue right now and you are so lucky, because you can wear this look well. Look for a bandeau with some gathers, which will give you some shape and definition, and will draw the eye upward. Salinas Swimwear has created out some really cute ones this year that fit this bill. The underwire hs been around forever, but will be making a big comeback in 2008. It will be tiny , fun and a little sexy...just perfect for a girl with a small bosum. Make sure that you find one that can be adjusted to fit perfectly and it will do wonders to your topline. I know that Tropi-Ties will be coming out with one this fall. Good luck finding the perfect swimsuit!

The bakery's original purpose was to use the excess flour produced by the mill. In 1917 the bakery developed a product that is still known as the MoonPie. The snack was created after one of the bakery salesmen visited a general store that catered to coal miners. The miners said they wanted something for their lunch pails: it had to be solid and filling. When asked how big it should be, one of the miners held out his hands and framed the rising moon. The salesman headed back to the bakery with an idea. He noticed workers dipping graham cookies into marshmallow and laying them on the window sill to harden. He added another cookie and a generous coating of chocolate and sent them back for the workers to try. The response was so enormous that the MoonPie became a regular item for the bakery.

Charlie Chaplain appeared in his first movie.

3. Why are people so against big boobs lately?

Surely women should be judged by who they are rather than by the size of their boobs. And preferences and likes in that department are purely personal. Big boobs may not be in vogue these days due to all the plastic surgery potential downfalls, and they just do not feel the same. I prefer medium sized ones. They are attractive, and just plain fun too. But again, I will primarily judge women by what they say and do, not by what they are carrying up there

Idk If it differs from each branch of the store or he state you live in. Though, I really really hope i've helped.!!!! :D have a great day. ;)9. Egypt: Newspapers and regular users,?LOOOOOOOOOOL Zoser you are hilarious! However, I do not think Msafwat is a newspaper. I always refer to him as an encyclopedia! As for hasafer ........ walla balash a7san! :P Then again, what the heck! I will just go ahead and say it HASAFER IS PLAY BOY =)) What can I say? I agree! hehehe Even though I never read Hawa in my life! I have no idea what it is about! You tell me?!! OK, I know what you are talking about now. My favorite "women's" magazine is Prima magazine, and I like Good House Keeping too! I never buy the new issues because they are ridiculously overpriced. I just wait till the book fair and buy the back issues from the sellers in the azbakiya area for just 2 or 3 pounds per magazine. I get a ton of them for the price of one new issue! I also like reading pregnancy and parenting magazines! My all time favorite is National Geographic! Great photography, interesting topics and very educational.

Why has use of u201crecursionu201d gone out of vogue in books since the early 1990s?I do not think it has.Consider how the word "programming" has fared in the Google Ngram ViewerThe downturn is proportionally the same for the two words. This probably has to do with the corpus of books Ngram uses rather than a real decline in the use of the words "recursion","programming", and even the word "computer". Fewer books on computers yields lower Ngram counts.
Question About a Viet Nam Zippo?
Assumptions as to it's authenticity aside and presuming it is not a facsimile ; you may very well have an historical curiosity . I would suggest you ply this question to the Zippo company themselves for , during the war Zippo made many limited production Zippos that were unit-specific and may have records and or advice as to authenticating the lighter - they often have production codes on the bottom of the lighter itself . The quote itself was in vogue at that time ; good luck and thank you for the respect shown to those who served - it is good to be remembered . . .1. what are the top 10 or 5 MUST HAVE items of 2008?Skinny Jeans Slouch Boots Cardigans Purple, Green, or Mustard Accessories (every page of Vogue had this) High-waisted anything2. Teen Magazines? Teen Vogue, Cosmo Girl, Seventeen...?Seventeen always has something about books, music, fashion, advice, and health issues. I analyzed Teen Vogue for an internship and I personally think that it needs an upgrade. Then again, Vogue is about fashion3. Teens-What do you want to grow up to be?Why?I am gonna be working for a degree in mass/communications and journalism cause I intend to be an editor hopefully for a high fashion magazine EX. allure, vogue..etc but im also gonna work for getting a degree in the medical field as a plan B but i am so confident with my first one, i wo not give up and ignore "Mexican Cellphone" based on other answers NOT a smart girl4. Free vogue handbag with paid subscription?Yeah you actually get it but personally i think the bag is kinda ugly5. Poll: GoGo's, Bangles, Bananarama, En Vogue or Spice Girls?go go's... though i did like the bangels quite a bit as well6. which make up we can use for a wedding girl?I am getting married this week. I tried looking in bridal magazines for ideas but all I found is fresh natural faces, which is an option but not what I wanted. So I got a nice big copy of Vogue and started flipping thru each page focusing on lipcolor and eyemakeup of the models. Before you knew it I had picked my color pallette for my face using 2 separate pictures. Of course you will want a more muted version of most of the looks. But it gave me fresh ideas7. What else can you come up with -if anything!?My daughter is 14, and lately she's been giving her friends these cute little mini hair straighteners (flat irons). They are about 5-6 inches long and they fit great in a purse or locker for emergency touch-ups. And they are just so cute! Everyone who sees one wants one. You can find them at most beauty supply stores for around $20-30. For magazines, you might also consider Cosmo Girl, Seventeen and Teen Vogue. Another fun gift: Get a cute tote bag and fill it with goodies that match the bag - flip flops, sunglasses, a matching top, jewelry, a fold-up hairbrush, compact mirror, etc. It does not cost a lot but it looks cool when everything inside matches. And girls always need a bag to carry stuff to school, sports practices, sleepovers, etc. Or how about making one of those no-sew fleece blankets (that you tie together) and a matching pillow? Great for snuggling on the couch or taking to sleepovers. My daughter has made one for all her friends and they use them all the time. Or how 'bout some cute pajamas and some really crazy slippers, boxed up with some magazines, nail polish kit, a chick-flick and some popcorn (sort of like a "slumber party" gift set). Or a really luxurious robe, wrapped up with some fancy-looking bath stuff, lotion and body powder? Just a few ideas.... hope this helps! But keep in mind, just because this girl is "in need" does not mean she does not want the same things that her more fortunate peers have. In fact, she wants them even more, because she can not easily get what everyone else has. Most needy children are provided with the essentials (toothpaste, socks, underwear, etc) by various charity groups... but as a generous individual, you have the chance to give her some things that she would really like but might never get. So think along the lines of what your daughter and her friends would like to receive. Aside from her financial situation, she's no different than them!
Inside Vogue Williams' Baby Nursery As She Prepares to Welcome Her First Child with Husband Spencer
Vogue Williams, 32, treated her328k followers on Instagram to a glimpse inside her nursery as she prepares to give birth to her first child with her husband Spencer Matthews.The Irish model, who was married to her love in June, took fans into the nursery which was brimming with all the goodies and everyday essentials the couple had splashed out on for their unborn son.Luxurious bed sheets, towels and many clothes could be seen folded in one of their two cots inside the room they have allocated in their home for their son.Also inside the nursery, Vogue and Spencer purchased a very extravagant mobile with a bird and cloud symbols hanging from the huge frame.As well as filling one cot with clothes and bed sheets, Vogue and Spencer had a cot set up ready for the arrival of their son with a big brown bear sat in the corner.In April, Vogue insisted the couple were 'pretty prepared' and she admitted she couldn't resist purchasing 'quite a lot' of clothes for the newborn on the way.Of the nursery, she told Hello! magazine :'We're actually pretty prepared.I just couldn't help myself.' Spencer backed her up:'Every single time we're apart from one another, which is rare, and we pass any sort of shop that sells baby clothes, it's carnage.'We're quite looking forward to this coming out so that we can shop for baby clothes without looking weird.' Vogue also ruled out having a gender-specific room prepared for the baby as she claimed she didn't want to paint the nursery a pink or blue.She added:'I like that idea anyway for a nursery, I don't like the idea of pink for a girl, blue for a boy. I want it to be so anyone can go in there.' Vogue has been documenting her journey on her social media platforms with a series of bump photographs and antidotes about her pregnancy.In her latest gushing post, the blonde lamented she was feeling 'very tired' and 'uncomfortable' with 'pains in the strangest places' but she insisted she wasn't 'nervous' about giving birth.She penned in the caption: 'Soon to be three!!!!! I can now fully understand why people get fed up at the end of pregnancy. I'm so tired, very uncomfortable and have pains in the strangest places!'A lot of people asking if I'm nervous of the birth part? Nope I am willing it on, ready and waiting! I may have to crawl out of my own body if this becomes more uncomfortable! Is it obvious I've become a whinger.' In August, Spencer revealed while he and Vogue would have liked a girl they were happy to be starting their brood with a boy and they already had plans to have four children.He said: 'Vogue and I want four kids so I think it's nice for the eldest to be a boy, especially if our next is a girl.'I like the idea of my daughter having an older brother to look out for her, especially if we still live in London and she wants someone to party with.'
Regina Bridal Shop Sweet Pea & Noelle Gets Nod in Vogue U.K.
"Enjoy, today is your day.""Keep an open mind, you never know until you try!"These are some of the messages, in pastel prints, to the left of Morgan Mayer and Brittany Holowaty, sisters seated together on a love seat.To their right is a row of wedding gowns.Their bridal boutique, Sweet Pea & Noelle - located in a 1926 Warehouse District building -is light and airy.It's not brimming with racks of clothes. There are few colours, no bridesmaids' dresses or graduation gowns: The bride is the focus at this shop.(In a deviation from white and cream-coloured lace and chiffon, there are 'wifey' T-shirts and 'Mrs.' jean jackets.)Everything in the store was intentional, from the curated selection of dresses, to Rory Mayer's custom art prints, to the location of the dressing rooms - far away from the two modelling areas, to give brides private time to breathe."There was a niche style-wise and service-wise that was wasn't being met -we felt anyway. And showcasing Canadian designers, because I think that they're doing some great things," said Mayer.Their vision hasn't gone unnoticed: Sweet Pea & Noelle gets a nod in the June issue of British Vogue, the only boutique to be mentioned in a feature about wedding trends."You have to be invited to Vogue," said Mayer. "You can't just be like, 'Hey, Vogue, we want to be part of your family.' ... So when I got their email (from Conde Nast), I actually sent it to Brittany, I was just like, 'Is this real'""It was like, I gotta make sure this is legit. And not just some, you know, random prince from random countries asking us for money," Holowaty said laughing."And Madonna's on the cover, which is amazing," added Mayer.Vogue U.K. is noticing what Reginans have already picked up on.Brides' most common comments about their appointments at Sweet Pea & Noelle are that they felt comfortable, their family members and friends felt comfortable, and they weren't overwhelmed.Shopping for a wedding gown can definitely be overwhelming."There's so many options; you have so many opinions. So keeping our space smaller so that you are avoiding those crowds eliminates a little bit of an element of that kind of stress," said Holowaty."Too much selection" can be problematic, added Mayer, so Sweet Pea & Noelle's selection is curated. It includes designers such as Zarucci, Kathryn Bass, Anais Anette and Pure Magnolia."And then there's also the fact that our appointments are twice as long, so it eliminates that one-hour rush time that is pretty standard with trying on dresses," said Holowaty. "You can really tell when people have been shopping (elsewhere) ... they're trying to go-go-go-go-go for the first 15 minutes, and then we're like, 'You know we have two hours, we have a lot of time,' and they just breathe and they calm down."The aim is to give customers the "royal treatment."Plus, "We want to be friends with you by the end of it," said Mayer."We want to make sure that these women are leaving feeling very body-positive," added Holowaty.Mayer and Holowaty are the "champion" for their brides - encouraging women to step out of their comfort zones, giving an honest opinion about what looks good, and offering a hug when needed.Mayer said she wants shopping at Sweet Pea & Noelle to be as much about the experience, as it is about finding a dress.That's why they decided to only carry bridal gowns: Bridesmaids dresses can be distracting, as "everyone starts shopping for themselves and the focus is pulled away from the bride," said Mayer.However, they are planning to open a separate store at some point, with a focus on wedding-party women.Mayer dreamed up Sweet Pea & Noelle four years ago, after coming home from a vacation in Bali, where she was inspired by the artisanship in everything.Already interested in the bridal industry, she Googled "Canadian wedding dress designers" and "ended up stumbling upon some amazing women that were creating their own look, their own vibe, and doing everything ethically in Canada, which made me very happy."These designers were making unique bridal gowns -the likes of which Mayer's friends had to leave Regina to get."So it just kind of all fit. I started making phone calls," said Mayer. "(The designers) didn't have any representation in the Prairie provinces."This was in June 2015; Sweet Pea & Noelle was incorporated in three months later. The store opened in October 2016.In the meantime, as Holowaty puts it, Mayer "called in the sister card.""She's also the only person I really trust to do things," said Mayer. "Brittany understands me. I can say nothing and she's like, 'I get it.'"As the business goes, they say Mayer is the dreamer and Holowaty is the "muscle" to get it done.Third-generation sibling entrepreneurs - their grandfather worked with his brother, then their father worked with their uncle - the store is named for the two sisters who run it. Mayer is nicknamed Sweet Pea, and Holowaty's middle name is Noelle.Find Sweet Pea & Noelle at 2100 Dewdney Ave. and

How Did Lawns Originate? Was There Anything Other Than Aesthetics for Having a Lawn When They First
The original "lawns" were not necessarily made purely of grass. A lawn was simply an area of vegetation that was kept closely cut (by scythe or sheep) so that lords and ladies could go for a stroll without wading through tall weeds. Because lawns took land out of agriculture and were labor intensive to maintain, they became a mark of gentility. I am pretty sure that Shakespeare mentions lawns somewhere, and Sir Walter Raleigh had time to finish his game of bowls on the lawn before setting out to fight the Spanish Armada.The modern well fertilized, insect-free, over watered, monoculture lawn is a very recent thing, and an ecological abomination1.

I would get the subscription for 10 issues each of Seventeen and Cosmo Girl I love reading magazines:)5. does reading vogue magazine make you?Magazines like Vogue cater to a high fashion audience. You can pull some everyday fashion out of them, but the majority of its content is stuff that a) the average person can not afford b) the average person would not wear on a day to day basis. I think reading Vogue can make you fashion conscious, being fashionable is a trait that does not just come from reading a magazine. Good Luck Lala6.

Gunshot question help for a story.?The shot from shotguns only start separating at about four feet from the barrel, so anything closer than that will essentially be one single projectile. Back in 1915 the gunpowder formulas did not have anywhere near the power of gunpowder today, and in rural areas they were still using the even weaker black powder. Plus, a sawed off shotgun would not have the same power as a full length shotgun becuase by the time the projectile leaves the barrel, half of the gunpowder would not have burned yet. So, the body would have one single large entry wound, and the shot probably would not have enough power to cause an exit wound. Plus, the front of the victim would have trillions of black specks all over her body from the unburned powder residue hitting her. People being knocked back 30 feet is a Hollywood myth. She would simply drop where she stood. Another thing to remember is that back in 1915 corsets for women were still in vogue, so depending on what kind of shot and powder the shotgun was using (I.E. a lead ball propelled by a black powder charge fro a short barreled weapon), the woman might even have survived if it hit one of those heavy steel corset stays. Doubtful, but possible.9. What color is this Maggie Sottero - En Vogue wedding gown?This is dress is soooo beautiful; It's elegant and classy. As soon as the dress arrive; take a look at it- & try it on- allow loved ones to take a few pictures and get a feel.
Let's Talk About the Application of Thermal Conductive Silica Gel in LED Lighting Industry
Thermal conductive silica gel sheet is a widely used thermal conductive interface material. It is in the form of sheet, high pressure shrinkage, high reliability, high temperature resistance, excellent thermal conductivity and insulation, with viscosity on the surface, simple and convenient construction. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.Heat conductive silica gel sheet is a kind of heat conductive medium material made by calendering with silica gel as the base material and adding various auxiliary materials such as metal oxides. It is usually called heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel gasket, heat conductive silicon film, soft heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel pad, etc. it is specially produced for the design scheme of using the gap to transfer heat and can fill the gap, It not only completes the heat transfer between the heating part and the heat dissipation part, but also plays the roles of insulation, shock absorption and sealing. It can meet the design requirements of miniaturization and ultra-thin equipment. It is a good heat conduction filling material with manufacturability and usability, and has a wide range of thickness and Application.Led thermal conductive silicon film is mainly used between aluminum substrate and heat sink, between aluminum substrate and shell, etc. Today, we mainly introduce the successful application of thermal conductive silica gel sheet in LED industry: there are many kinds of LED lamps. For indoor LED lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheet with relatively low thermal conductivity is generally used, which can reduce the cost of the product and meet the needs of the product itself. For some outdoor high-power LED lamps, such as street lamps, the power is much higher than other indoor lamps, In order to better heat dissipation of lamps and improve the service life of lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheets with relatively high thermal conductivity are generally used.The inherent viscosity of the heat-conducting silica gel sheet facilitates the construction. If the customer needs the heat-conducting silica gel sheet to have strong viscosity to replace the screw fixation, he can also choose to give one-sided or double-sided adhesive backing to the heat-conducting silica gel sheet. If the heat-conducting silica gel sheet needs to lock the screw, please remember to choose the heat-conducting silica gel sheet containing glass fiber cloth, which has the properties of anti puncture and anti tear. In short, the heat conductive silica gel sheet can be customized according to customer requirements to meet customer needs. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.
7 Tips to Help You Sell Your Farm Fresh Eggs for More Money
The continuing trend of raising backyard chickens has had an unintended negative effect on those selling their extra eggs. Due to a steady supply of fresh eggs from backyard flocks and small local farms at markets, roadside stands and feed stores, egg prices are being kept artificially low. But there are some things you can do to help you sell your fresh eggs for a bit more money. When you begin to calculate your expenses - including egg cartons, labels, business cards, feed, supplements, supplies, the chickens themselves, plus their coop and run, not to mention a little something for your time, and gas to get to the market - it's often hard to sell a dozen eggs for a high enough price to simply break even. Many times, local eggs are sold for about the same price as store-bought eggs, despite being fresher and more nutritious AND laid by happy hens. And when you sell your eggs, you are not only competing against the low grocery-store prices, but also against other local sellers. Studies have shown that buyers will more likely make a purchase when you engage more than one of their senses. So by enticing potential shoppers' sense of touch, sight, sound and possibly even taste, you have a better chance at making that sale. Here are some tips to engage the senses, get your eggs to stand out from the crowd and possibly even fetch a premium price. If you are selling at a farmers' market or fair, crack an egg into a bowl to show potential buyers how great your eggs look. Eggs from chickens that eat a lot of herbs, grass and weeds will naturally have more vibrant yolks and look fresher than store-bought eggs from caged chickens. But you can bump up the wow factor of your chickens' egg yolks even more by feeding foods high in xanthophyll, a carotenoid with a naturally orange pigment. Some foods rich in xanthophyll include basil, carrots, corn, marigolds, parsley, pumpkin, red cabbage and the leaves of most green plants. Adding a pop of color to your cartons can entice buyers to your table. Raise some chickens that lay blue, green or cream-colored eggs to create some eye candy in your cartons! Chicken eggs can be a dime a dozen because of the large supply available, but there are other types of poultry that lay eggs. Duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs and thought to be to be better for baking due to their higher fat content. Tiny quail eggs are considered a delicacy and are often pickled or used by five-star chefs to top burgers or salads due to their smaller size and relative rarity. There might also be a market for turkey and goose eggs in your area - and you will likely be able to set your own price. Studies show that someone is more likely to purchase an item if they have touched or held it. Consider putting out a basket of eggs on your table and handing an egg to anyone who stops at your table. Give out free samples - let people take home an egg to try it for themselves. Hopefully, that will compel them to come back the next week to buy - if they do not buy a dozen eggs on the spot. Make your packaging unique. Instead of simply packaging your eggs in cartons and stacking them on the table, why not tie a pretty ribbon or some baker's twine around the carton and attach a wildflower or sprig of herbs? Maybe even tuck a simple egg recipe in. Or fill large baskets or metal pails with eggs and let your buyers hand select a dozen to put in their carton. And do not forget to pass out business cards. Sending each customer away with your contact information is a must to make it easy for them to locate you when they are ready to reorder. Studies have shown that chickens raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs than chickens that never see the light of day or step foot on grass. Pasture-raised chickens have access to a more diverse diet, including a variety of forages and insects, which can lead to increased levels of vitamins A and E and omega-3 fatty acids. Other studies have shown that chickens raised on grass lay eggs that are lower in cholesterol than those raised on a commercial feed-only diet. Share this information with your potential customers by printing out a nutritional comparison on cards or handouts that they can take home with them - and be sure the handout has your contact information on it too! If possible, play a recording of chickens softly clucking with an occasional rooster crowing at your booth. The sound of happy chickens in the background will work to engage yet another sense and hopefully give your buyers the urge to bring home some farm fresh eggs! And back to sight for a minute, photographs of your chickens or a large poster showing them happily roaming a field can help reinforce the positive image of your farm and your eggs - you are putting faces and even names to the producers! Using a little creativity will give you a leg up on your competition and hopefully fetch higher prices for your delicious, fresh eggs! Also check your state Department of Agriculture's egg laws or cottage-food regulations, so you are aware of egg grading, handling and storing requirements, rules about the reuse of cartons and carton labeling regulations - including the use of such terms as organic, free-range and pasture-raised. Your local extension service should be able to point you in the right direction to get that information or you can find it online. Egg laws vary state by state.Where do they sell jacuzzi?Jacuzzis R us Sells pretty good ones ay low prices Or craigslist Has one for free in LA Go quick
Need Help Finding Kitchen Items and Sofa?
The daybed and the island appear custom made to me. Any of the kitchen redesigners should be able to replicate the island without difficulty. The "tiles" on the floor are flagstone and any slab or rock yard has them, but to use on subflooring you need them guaged so that they all lay even. You really should go to a granite yard to look at the slabs because every yard calls their granite colors by something different with a few exceptions that are industry wide (like absolute black granite because it comes from only one mine in India)1. dog urine on my sofa?I just bought this product last week. It takes EVERYTHING out. It's called Folex and you can find it at Walmart. It's cheap too2. Is my sofa ruined? Help!?!?Just in case scratch it all over. Apply the oil to make it match. This is creativity. You just might like the new look3. Bernhardt sofa back support fallen off internally. Springs OK. Any ideas how to fix the sofa?Well, hubby fixed ours by opening it up, finding the broken piece and replacing it with fresh wood and screws and like the guy earlier stated, problem solve--then he used his staple gun to put the upholstery back in place. Worked quite well and looked professional4. Is buying a sofa from Walmart a good idea?Well even Target does not sell quality furniture. We bought a 5 piece dining room table a year ago and it's scratched up. We do not use it daily, it definitely was not worth $225 and likely can not sell it. I would suggest Garage Sale, Estate Sales, Dock 86, Secondhand shops, or Slumberland had a pretty decent sale on the July 4th, I am sure they will have a great sales weekend Labor Day, We bought a chocolate chenille couch for $580 normally $900. Free Delievry.5. how can i get rid of an unwanted sofa?Place it for free on the Craiglist in the free items section. Depending on where you live someone will be there in a snap to pick it up. If you have a digital camera take pictures also and upload them on the listing. Good Luck.6. How can I save my sofa?Get a strong piece of plywood and cover it with foam batting and stick it underneath the couch cushions. It should give enough support until you can replace it. Congrats on the new home.7. how to get candle wax out of upholstry [ sofa ] ?ummm...sarah has a point...but with something that is as fragile as micro-fiber I think personally I would allow the wax to completely harden and pull up as many pieces as I could as carefully as I could . Just so you do not over stretch the fabirc and cause raised spots. you could gently scrape away the rest. If there is still some in the couch...look up the manufacturers recommendations with water. If its okay with water, then use an ice cube to freeze more of it off. Or, you could even just put the ice in a ziplock bag and just do it that way. I would not take an iron to the couch...microfiber is a bit too satin-y for that. Just work slowly and carefully...and keep at it. Good luck.8. How to make Sofa seats "higher"?You could raise the sofa by placing concrete blocks under all 4 corners. Then get some boards & cover them in fabric or paint them or stain them & place them like a "skirt" under the 3 sides of the sofa. You could even give it an industrial look by using metal sheets or gridwork. As for the cushions, you do not say if they are attached or loose. If they are loose, hopefully they are zippered. In which case you will go to a fabric store & buy some dacron sheets & wrap the cushions with the sheets using a spray glue so it does not shift. Use a dry cleaning bag over the cushion to get it to slide easily back into the cover. Using dacron will probably be a lot less expensive than buying new foam cores, but look into that also - just find an upholstery outlet in your area. You can also just put boards under your cushions, but that will just feel firm, not more comfortable. If your cushions are attached there is not much you can do. You can always look for a sofa on craigslist, but just be sure that you disinfect it.
Can I Heat an Outside Chicken Coop with an Underground Heating System?
Can I heat an outside chicken coop with an underground heating system?go too: Heatinghelp.com (it might be .net or ? but try that) You want to find a place called, "The Wall" it is a place just like this where you can post your question. Simply: Yes you can.. but it depends on your heat source to heat the water? Existing boiler? Wood stove etc... I think it would be a great idea to do. YOu could even run a line under their nests if they are off the ground... not too hot now.. just enough to warm the toosh on those reall cold nights! I have seen dog houses heated etc.... You can use Pex pipe, circulator, expansion tank... basic fittings... you will have too have a basic knowledge to put it together and you can find the information at that sight. Just incase they have changed another search point or name would be: Dan Holohan, Hydronic heat, Wethead,,,,, any one of those should pull his site up. Good luck, great idea... it may cost a bit but why not ..— — — — — —What Is a Radiant Floor Heating System?Radiant heat is not exactly a new idea. Turkish and Roman baths were often constructed on raised floors so warm air could circulate underneath and keep things comfortable. Incorporating radiant heating systems into modern dwellings did not become popular, however, until the mid 20th century. Radiant heat has many advantages over other central heat systems, such as forced air, but installation cost is not one of them, especially if you want to add radiant heat to an existing structure. This can be an expensive alternative. However, radiant heat can be one of the most environmentally friendly heating options when used in conjunction with solar heating panels. What Is Radiant Heat? Hydroponic Radiant Floors Unlike in a Turkish bath, the radiant heat in a modern system comes from pipes or electric heating elements embedded in the floor or installed in the joists underneath. In a hydronic system, water circulates through a boiler, which maintains it at a temperature warm enough to heat the floor. This type of system is less costly to operate than an electric system, especially if you supplement the energy source needed to heat the water by using solar panels. The pipes that carry the heated water in a hydronic system are often embedded in concrete, because concrete is a good thermal conductor. The pipes in older systems are usually copper, but newer systems employ polyethylene (PEX) tubing, which is more versatile and easier to install. PEX tubing can even be installed in existing joists, so it is possible to have radiant heat under your hardwood or tile floor without having to tear it up. Electric Radiant Heat The elements in an electric radiant heat system are typically embedded in mats that go between the subfloor and the floor covering. The best time to install these is when you are replacing the floor covering. If your floor is not due for replacement anytime soon, you can also buy mats that fit between the joists and install them from underneath the floor. Three Types of Hydronic Systems You can choose from three different hydronic heating systems: closed, open or heat exchange. Closed system. The boiler is dedicated to the heating system. The main advantage of this type of system is that you can use antifreeze instead of water as the circulating fluid. Antifreeze is less corrosive than water, which is good for the boiler, and it's also more efficient at transferring heat. Open system. The boiler supplies hot water to bathrooms and kitchens as well as the heating system. You save money because you only need one water heater. Heat exchanger. A heat exchange system combines the benefits of both open and closed systems. The pipes that supply the radiant heat system pass through the main water heater, but they are sealed and usually circulate antifreeze instead of water. And you can get creative with a heat exchange system and tie it to a solar heating panel. The pipes from the panel can circulate antifreeze through the water heater as well as the floor, lowering your water heating costs while also providing heat for the house. Pros and Cons of Radiant Heat On the plus side, a radiant heating system puts the heat exactly where you need it-under your feet. As the warm air rises, the room quickly becomes uniformly and comfortably warm without the drafts and convection currents associated with forced air. Another advantage over forced air is that a radiant system has fewer moving parts. The only components you have to service are the boiler-which can double as a hot water heater for the bathroom in a pinch-and the circulation pump, which is a relatively inexpensive item. You will be happy you have radiant heat when the power goes out during a winter storm, because the floor retains heat for a few hours. The main drawback of radiant heat is its installation cost. This probably is not a problem if you are already building or renovating. But if you are not , the cost, which can approach $9.00 per square foot in a smaller house, can definitely be a factor. Another disadvantage is that a radiant heating system does not work well as a cooling system. If you need both heating and cooling, it's usually best to go with a forced air system. As far as electric radiant heat is concerned, it's best suited as a supplement to your existing heating system. It consumes too much electricity to make it practical as a stand-alone heating system for the entire home. Compatible Floor Coverings Not all floor coverings conduct heat well enough to work with radiant heating systems. The best choice is ceramic tile, which conducts heat as well as concrete. Laminate and stone flooring, as well as solid and engineered hardwood, are also suitable. Carpeting and vinyl flooring, however, are not good choices. These materials are poor conductors of heat, and are more likely to trap heat than to allow it to radiate into the room. Should I Go with Radiant Heat? If you are building a new house or you are considering a major renovation, radiant heat should definitely be on your list of options, particularly if the house has high ceilings. The best time to install a radiant heat system is when you are building the floors. Adding radiant heat to an existing structure is more labor-intensive and expensive, but it might make sense if you already have a large, underused water heater in good condition. Keep in mind that you do not need radiant heat in every room. You will probably want it in the bedrooms, bathrooms and living room, but hallways, closets and laundry rooms do not need the extra warmth. If you are on the fence, you can always give radiant heat a test run by purchasing an under-carpet heating mat. This provides the same type of warmth you would get from an actual radiant heating system, and the installation costs are zero.
