We were heartbroken to hear about Alan Rickman's death this week.
He was a man of countless roles throughout his career but many of us know him best as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films.
Here's a scene where he and Professor Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) play a prank on Daniel Radcliffe during the filming of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Rickman passed away on January 14th at the age of 69.
He will be missed.
Do you remember YOUR first taste of.....BACON?
This is how we felt this morning when we realized it's #NationalBaconDay.
hj National Bacon Day is easily one of the tastiest holidays on the calendar.
And there are PLENTY of ways to show your love for this 'lil piggy.
In fact, feel free to get a little wild with it.
Maybe cover it in some nuts & chocolate....
Decorating your Christmas tree is a fairly simple and fun activity to tackle.
The process of finding one and getting it (safely) to your home is a little more challenging.
Here are 5 tips to help make transporting your Evergreen less painful.
1. Wrap it in a blanket or a sheet before you put it on your car. Or have the salesman wrap it in netting, and put a blanket underneath it, so it doesn't scratch the top of your car. 2. When you put it on your car, make sure the trunk is facing forward. The wind can damage the branches and knock a bunch of the needles off if you do it the other way. And make sure you go trunk-first when you bring it through your front door too.
3. Tie it down with THREE ropes or bungee cords, not two. One in the back . . . one in the middle . . . and one over the trunk in the front. And loop that one around the trunk at least once before you tie it down.
4. If you don't have a roof rack, open the doors and loop the rope through the car to tie it down. If you just run it through the windows, you won't be able to open the doors to get into your car. Here's a video that'll walk you through it.
5. If sap gets on your car, use rubbing alcohol to clean it off. Put some on a washcloth . . . lay it down where the sap is . . . leave it there for 30 seconds . . . and it should wipe right off.
