Decorate with photographs

  Hanging photos can be fun, personal way to fill wall space.  But many of us don't know how to do it.  "The great thing about hanging picture is that it's not permanent," says Karen McAloon, host of home decor show, "DesignRemix." "If you don't like it, change it".
  Pick a theme.  Everything doesn't have to match, but there should be a unifying aspect.  Group pictures of your kids, black-and-white shots or nature images, or place mismatched photos in identical frames.
  Find a shape.  Paint a shape (circle, cross, triangle, diamond) on the wall and hang all the pictures inside.
  Form a band.  Paint a 90-centimeter stripe on the wall, 1.2 meters off the ground.  Hang photos inside.
  Keep it close.  Leave three to eight centimetres between each frame.
  Colour a wall.  Black-and-white shots look best on a coloured wall.  Colour photos look best if the wall colour doesn't match, says McAloon.

Do your light bulbs keep blowing?

  If so, it may not mean you have a rewiring problem.  Before you call out the electrician, run through these checks.
  Find out where the bulbs you're buying have come from.  Bulbs from abroad are vulnerable.  Try one made nearer to home.  Have you chosen the correct bulb for the fitting?  Overheating, caused if a bulb is forced into an enclosed space, can make it blow.  Where is your bulb located?  Vibration near a bulb from washing machines, children playing or even walking up stairs will often snuff out a light source.

Tips for better home movies

  If your amateur filming never quite captures the magic of an event, try these tricks:

  Create a story.  If you're filming a birthday party, talk to whomever made the cake or is providing the entertainment.
  Don't rely on what people say.  Add your own narration as you film.
  Choose the right light.  Avoid filming high-contrast situations, such as people backlit by the sun, or low-contrast (a dinner party lit only by candles).
  Shoot with both eyes open.  Keep one eye on the screen and the other on the action - this will enable you to react quickly.
  Give up control.  Lend your camera to a child or suspend it in one place for half an hour - you might get some interesting footage.

Criminal Law

  A man is on trial for armed robbery. The jury comes back with the verdict. The foreman stands, clears his throat, and announces, "Not guilty."

  The defendant leaps to his feet. "Awesome!" he shouts. "Does that mean I get to keep the money?".

  As she slid behind the wheel for her first driving lesson, my daughter couldn't contain her excitement. "You need to make adjustments so the car is comfortable for you, the driver," I began. "Now, what's the first thing you should do?"

  "Change the radio station," she said.

Miscellaneous

  I didn't think I had been gone that long. After 20 months overseas, my ship arrived in San Diego and, as soon as I got ashore, I phoned home. "Hi, Mom!" I said.

  "Who is this?" she answered.

  Hello! I'm an only child.
