• Do spiders have a sense of smell?

    It occurred to me, that it might be easier to deter them from entering my home if they did; by spraying a scent that they didn't like around the window and door frames. Of course, that would only work if they did have a sense of smell.

  • How to care for a baby bird that I found?

    It looks like it was too young to leave the nest as it can't fly yet. I think that it might be a very young sparrow. Does anyone know how I could care for it; or even if it is possible?

  • What is the best computer program for making a deck of cards?

    I want to design and make my own playing cards, because I have come up with a great idea for one. I have Windows 7 and Office 2010; but when I went looking for a template on Microsoft I couldn't find one. Is there another program for making them; it would have to be a free one. Any ideas about how I should go about it?

  • When are we going to get the Recommended tab back?

    I saw a post from two days ago that someone had gotten the tab back; but when I looked today there was no sign of it. I really liked it and found it a lot faster to find the kind of questions that I like to answer, than having to go search through the hundreds on offer.
