Hi Orin. I love your little 'kitchen'!
Sorry I can't send you tools or funds. But I could knit a hat for you like I did for some others (because of the BRK).
If you want a knitted wool hat: what is the size of your head (how many inches or centimeters measured around it just above the ears)? If you prefer socks (house-socks, thick homespun wool), that's possible too. You can send me a PM.
There are so many (very) easy BBs. The only difficult thing about them is to make the photos!
Glad I read the dailyish about PEP and BBs. That gave me a link to 'what are your 20 easiest BBs' and in there was a link to this thread.
I never knew there was a BB for giving urine to plants. Of course that is the easiest! I did it many times, so all I have to do is to make photos next time.

"Floaters" usually refers to visible particles suspended in the vitreous humor (eye-jelly) inside the eye. They may dart in and out of vision as the eye moves. When I initially looked up treatment for eye floaters, the only surgeries I found for their removal were either high risk or invasive procedures.


Yes, they are something that's in your view, in your eye. But what are they, how do they come there? Do they come from outside (like air pollution f.e.) or are they produced by the body (the eye) itself? What 'material' are they made of?
Surgery to remove them hasn't even come to my mind. But is it possible to remove them in any way (I mean: can they really disappear?)? All cures suggested in this thread, what do they do to the floaters, in what way do they help?

If the floaters are produced by the body itself, then probably diets will work. But if a floater in fact is damage to the eye, I don't think anything can help (but surgery, which could even cause more damage).

To me the topic (thread) of a BB, with everyone posting their photos there, asking questions, giving reactions ... That feels like a BB-club.
I do not feel the need to have a different kind of club, for which I have to be present at a certain time to meet with Zoom.

Remember to take all the required pictures  I've messed that up more than once...

Thank you Mike, for that reminder.

I think I can do this BB as soon as I've got time. I already have a brush pile, but it isn't in the right spot. And I have more hedges and bushes to trim, so there will be plenty for a pile 5 ft wide and 5 ft high (I think). Now I'll have to think of a nice spot to put that pile.

I have 'floaters' for as long as I can remember. Always thought there is nothing you can do about it, just get used to them. Now I see this topic and Marjory's site, I start thinking it's possible to get rid of those things (sometimes blocking my view when making detailed drawings or handcrafts). First remedy I'll try is the honey.
