The organist could have tried playing SOS in Morse code: short-short-short, long-long-long, short-short-short!

Just read about using a ketchup bottle for dispensing pancake batter...sounds like it'd be perfect for ABC pancakes:

The name was a tiebreaker for us...our basement carpet color is "Morningside," which is also the name of our neighborhood.

We used the small hooks to hang some framed photos. They stayed put until we pulled them off without any damage to the walls 7 years later when we moved out. Just make sure you follow the directions, i.e., press in place for 30 seconds and wait an hour before putting any weight on the hook.

I would imagine concrete or cement is not ideal, as the surface is not smooth and you'll have only a fraction of the surface area available to stick to the 3M strip.

We used the IKEA Akurum kitchen wall cabinet in the bathroom as a linen cabinet: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S29811848

They have a very easy system for hanging it on the wall, but it does leave a tiny gap between the back of the cabinet and the wall.

One of these days, I'll post a photo and ask for advice on how to make the space not look like we have a kitchen with a toilet in it...
