Archives for posts with tag: games for the family to play together

Long, long ago before personal hand-held electronic devises, families played board games together. Talking, telling tales what they did that day,  laughing and enjoying their time together. They certainly were not bored by any means while playing age old, tried and true board games.

Opinions vary on the top board game of all time.

Is it Monopoly or is it Chess? Since Chess racks up many more years than taking Boardwalk and Park Place away from your mother, the top game has to be Chess over Monopoly, right?

Chess first appeared in the 6th century AD in India and uses brain power leaving Lady Luck in the dust.

Believe it or not, if you have scratches on CDs or DVDs you may find this to be An Appealing Idea for repairing them.

We have not taken it to the test yet, but sounds like an inexpensive easy trick.

The Banana CD scratch remover

What you’ll need:

  • A banana
  • A banana peel
  • Some glass cleaner
  1. Take a CD / DVD that has smudges and minor scratches on it.
  2. Using a circular motion, apply a freshly cut banana to it.
  3. Next, wipe it down with the banana peel. The wax from the peel will help polish and further clean the disk.
  4. Take a clean cotton cloth and wipe the entire surface of the CD / DVD. Be sure to apply moderate pressure while moving in a circular motion. This should be done for around 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Finally, spray the disc with glass cleaner and wipe it clean.

Voilà! Your scratched CD or DVD should now look like new! Please note that this trick will also help you repair scratched PS2 and Xbox CD’s and DVD’s.
