Five and a Half

 ~ Welcome to Five~and~a~Half ~

Five and a half

Have you ever said, “If I could have just five minutes to myself . . . ” or “I never get to finish a cup of coffee while it is hot.” Me too! I absolutely understand what you mean. Truth is we probably do have five minutes to our name, maybe not ten, but probably five. And as for that cup of coffee, my solution was to pour myself a half cup of coffee. Then mostly assuredly, I’d be able to finish a “cup” of coffee while it was still hot.

Here in the Five~ and~ a~Half room you should be able to find any tidbit of information that you need about the home with less than a five minute read. If you can’t find the information on a topic you need, then leave me a comment so that I can add it. Grab your half cup of coffee and join me for five minutes. After all that’s probably all you get before someone very important in your world starts calling your name.

Please note that this section is still being developed. More information on more topics will be added often. But if you have a specific question, please leave me a message at I’ll do the research, get the answer to you and add the information to our database. Thank you for your help in making this the best site for getting the information you need for you and your family.

Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.”  ~H. Jackson Brown
