8 Simple hints make spring bathroom cleaning a breeze +'» jV SHARING SECRETS with SHIRLEY • For an extremely stained tub, use a mixture of peroxide and cream of tartar. Make a paste and scrub vigorously with a small brush. Rinse thoroughly. • If stain persists, spread the above mixture over stain and apply a drop or two of household ammonia. Allow to set for two hours before scrubbing. • Very old porcelain stains can be cleaned by shaving a bar of Naphtha soap into a bucket of hot water and adding V 2 cup of mineral spirits. Stir to dissolve the soap and then brush on stain vigorously. The amount of water is about a gallon and a half. • Light stains often can be removed by simply rubbing with a cut lemon. • For dark stains, and especially rust, rub with a paste of borax and lemon juice. • To brighten up a bathtub which has yellowed, rub with a solution of salt and turpentine. • Soak decals in mineral spirits, then scrape away. Spray down with a spray cleanser and rub with the abrasi...

(Photo by Greg Hicks) Leaders visit lawmakers By GREG HICKS VFBF Communications Director WASHINGTON—The future demand for Virginia farm exports may hinge on current negotiations with 12 nations comprising the European Economic Community, according to a U.S. agricultural official and several Virginia congressmen. But rnx all Viiginia Earm Bureau Federation leaders, many of who attended the annual congressional trip March 6, believe the proposed "fast-track" negotiating authority, aimed at speeding completion of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, or GATT, talks is the answer. Fast track would give Congress 60-90 days to consider any agreement reached in the Uruguay Round of GATT negotiations. Some Farm Bureau leaders feel last track would limit the opportunity to evaluate trade agreements with other nations. ' 'There are commodity groups...

2 Farm Bureau grassroots work evident in General Assembly The 1991 General Assembly was called a short session because it lasted less than two months. But in those 50-some days, 2,081 bills and resolutions were introduced and considered, many affecting the livelihood of the Virginia farmer. Your S4O membership dues go a long way in Farm Bureau. Consider that this year alone Farm Bureau was successful in defeating legislation which would have increased the rollback penalty on land taken out of a land-use assessment program from five to 10 years, essentially doubling the tax liability on a farmer. This savings alone more than pays a membership for years to come. Consider that legislation in 1991 threatened to restrict 12- and 13-year-olds from working on their family farms. But Farm Bureau was successful in defeating this amendment as well, helping families retain needed labor on the farm. Consider that Farm Bureau helped counter a measure which would have meant health insurance incre...

Madison County women take home top award ROANOKE—The Madison County Farm Bureau Women's Committee was named the most outstanding committee during the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 1991 Statewide Women's Conference. Outstanding committees also were named in each district. The conference, which was March 3-5 at the Roanoke Airport Marriott, was attended by 167 Farm Bureau women from around the state. Traditionally, the most outstanding committee has been one of the seven counties named outstanding in their districts, but this year's judges wanted to recognize an additional county committee for excellence. Mildred Hale, Madison County Women's Committee 1990 chairman, accepted the most outstanding committee plaque. The Madison County Women's Committee met eight times in 1990, brought in two new members to make 10, submitted written goals by Feb. 1 to receive a GOal Getter award, and sent representatives to all Farm Bureau meetings. Madison's committee attended a wetlands program in ...

April 1991 Farmers sought to grow old-timey flower bulbs By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON Farm Bureau News Editor It's a bloomin' shame you can t get your hands on Naked Ladies, British Soldiers, Trumpet Majors and Lilies of the Field. That's what restoration garderners and landscapers around the country are saying about these old-timey flowering bulbs. But a third-generation bulb grower says Virginia farmers could make plenty of these bulbs commercially available and profit by raising them right between their soybeans. Gloucester County Farm Bureau member Brent C. Heath is looking for a few farmers willing to grow one or more of these bulbs, which can thrive here but not in the colder climate of Holland, the world s largest producer of bulbs. Heath and his wife Becky own and operate The Daffodil Mart, an international wholesale and retail mailorder bulb business. Besides growing and selling bulbs, the Heaths design landscapes and gardens using bulbs, and advise customers on the best use of b...

April 1991 Farm, home safety game travels to conferences By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON Farm Bureau News Editor Playing a game may help you have a safer farm and home. That's what Norman Wilkinson, safety coordinator for the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Companies, and Tommy Harper had in mind when they began kicking around the idea of a quiz that would show convention-goers safe and unsafe scenes. Harper, who is an electrician for Rubatex Corp. at Bedford and teaches fire and other safety courses, designed and built the table-sized electronic game, which was unveiled at the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 65th Annual Convention in November. The Farm and Home Safety Quiz works like this: A player looks at 20 numbered scenes around a miniature farm and decides which are safe and unsafe. To indicate his answers, he flips numbered switches to "S" or "U." Where the player's answer is safe, a green light comes on; where the answer is unsafe, a red light comes on. To check the answers, ...

NEWS Vol. 50, No. 4 Agricultural exports are bright light in Virginia's future While sales are down and unemployment is up in many Virginia industries, some Virginia producers are literally riding the tide to profit and success via export to European and Asian markets. Virginia agricultural products which are realizing a surge in exports include poultry, logs and lumber and seafood. The surge in the export of these Virginia agricultural products in the past five years seems to be continuing in spite of bad news elsewhere in the economy. "The value of the U.S. dollar has dropped in overseas markets which therefore makes Virginia agricultural products less costly to foreign buyers. This is particularly true in Virginia hardwoods and applies to the poultry industry as well," said Robert P. Rich, director of international marketing with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. "The increase in poultry exports is tied as much to the growing preference abroad for ligh...

2 Dairymen in Southeast states forming co-op Because of an over-supply of milk around the globe, many of Virginia's 3,300 dairy farmers are struggling to survive. In fact, some Virginia dairy farmers say their milk is worth 25 percent less than it was only a year ago due to the continuing rise in production. Month and after month of smaller milk checks has forced a contingent of state dairy farmers to consider a cooperative approach with nine other southeastern states in an effort to increase prices. The Southeastern Dairy Farmers Federation, or SDFF, is being formed to persuade milk processors to pay an above-market premium for farmers' milk, while keeping the final price below the cost of importing milk from the Midwest, the nation's primary milk market. Already, the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has donated $500 in seed money to the fledgling cooperative. This action followed a recommendation by Farm Bureau's dairy advisory committee and unanimous approval from the VFBF Contrib...
