Hints from Heloise: Today's Sound Off -- late isn't great
It was my "something old." -- Constance D., Glenrock, WyomingPlumbing the depthsDear Readers: It's the perfect time to check out your plumbing mechanisms:Tighten loose connections to the washing machine, and check the hoses for signs of wear, like cracks and leakage. The washer tends to get used more in the summer, especially with a busy family, so prevention is a good practice. Every three years is a good interval for replacement of hoses.Next, be careful about what goes down the garbage disposal. Thick summery food waste, like corncobs and husks, watermelon rinds and banana peels, most likely will overtax your disposal. Place these items in your compost pile. Run plenty of cold water with whatever items you do send through the disposal.You always can call your plumber to come and inspect your sewer lines. Inquire about trees that are close to the house during the inspection. Root growth can be a problem. -- HeloiseGlue and tapeDear Heloise: Unfortunately, I broke my ceramic spoon rest.

Here's to less waste! -- Heloise'Clickbait' cautionDear Heloise: Do your readers know what "clickbait" is? It's a pretty interesting media phenomenon, and there's a lot to know.Clickbait is an online advertising link consisting of a wild, fantastic, over-the-top headline referencing a celebrity, public figure or other person or news event in the current media cycle.Advertisers are counting on you to be so intrigued by the headline that you will click on the story and read it. Look closely: You may see the word "Advertisement" or "Sponsored" somewhere on the screen. What you will find is that the headline is misleading at best, and downright untrue at worst.The Better Business Bureau (www. bbb.org) has even spoken up about the topic. Scammers could...
