Tip of the Day "Shaving Cream"

I found a great book at a little consignment store a while back called ....
"The Queen of Cleans" by Linda Cobb  2002

So each Day I would like to Give a tip of the Day from this little book... some things even my Gram used to tell me........Enjoy

SHAVING CREAM...Shaving cream is one of the best spot and stain removers available  ...That's because all it is is whipped Soap!  If you have a stain on your clothes , carpet, or car seat...moisten the spot, work in some shaving cream, and then flush it with cool water.    If your wearing the item at the time, work the shaving cream in and use a clean cloth to blot the shaving cream and the spot away....Finish off with a quick touch of the blow dryer to prevent a ring .... I carry some in the car just in case lol
it works!!

Ligonier Dining

Ligonier has a lot going for it, for a small town (population: 1,573).
There are plenty of small- to midsize cities that don't have as many interesting attractions, or good places to eat, as Ligonier.

ligonier Women creates beautiful Art

Life is reflected in bits of colored glass for Dawnmarie Zimmerman of Ligonier.
Zimmerman combines glass with marble and with pieces of slate she finds during walks on Laurel Ridge to create contemporary mosaic art. She has a passion for this textured form of expression.




Hardimans in the news


On St. Patrick's Day, it's said that everyone has a bit of Irish in them. For a couple near Ligonier, that goes for horses, too.
There's no mistaking an Irish horse, said John Hardiman of Cook Township.
He should know, having worked with specimens of the mild-mannered but athletic Irish Draught horse breed since he was a farm lad growing up in an Irish village near Galway.

shout out to Ligonier Living contributors

Hi, Folks:  As you may have noticed, I have turned control of Ligonier Living over to Clay Shirey of Mountain Palace.  I'll still contribute, but Clay will be handling the general direction of this blog.

I still see a place in the world for Ligonier Living as not everyone is on Facebook and not everyone on Facebook is into Ligonier Unpolished.  ;)

If you are already a contributor, please consider posting something of interest. If you would like to become a contributor, send an email to Clay.  You'll see his email at the top of the blog.
