How to Use a Farmer's Almanac

Hi! I'm just wondering if anyone could give me advice on how to use a Farmer's Almanac to break a child from using a pacifer. I know it can be used to quit smoking and things like that, but I can't find anything on the net that will tell me HOW to use it for particular needs. HELP!!

Here's the best way to use the Farmer's Almanac: Wait until some morning this winter when you wake up and it's cold because the fire has gone out. Go get your Old Farmer's Almanac and rip as many pages out of it as necessary to get the fire going again.

Not to be rude but that's stupid...I was just wondering if anyone knows how bad this winter is going to be. I've been browsing some sites (cough cough) the Old Farmer's Alamanc's site and it predicts an El Nino! Yay! Sorry, I love snow more than a three year old. Please respond if you have any information. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Not sure about the farmers almanac. Here's what my neighbor did to help a child stop using a pacifier. Just brought out the scissors and cut the nipple off of the pacifier. Bingo! No more pacifier. But, you may have to pat the child to sleep at bedtime for a week or so...same works with going off the bottle. You may have to pat baby's back for 1/2 an hour while they're laying in the crib but, only takes about 1 week.

Alex, you're still a smart alec and I love it! Thanks for the laughs! :)

Stephanie, to answer your question, you break a child of a pacifier, or a bottle, or anything you want to STOP during the waning moon. Just check the Almanac for when to prune vegatation for when you don't want it to grow back fast. You get your hair cut if you don't want to have to do it again soon at the same time of the moon. Just remember, when the moon is getting bigger, that's for increasing anything. When it is getting smaller, that's for decreasing anything.

HAHAHA!! Ok ok ok.... the responses ranged from the strangely absurd to just plain strange. LOL Thanks a million for the advice on the waning moon though! I'll try it. And as for tossing my almanac in the fire, I might give that a try as well! hahaha Thanks!
