Product helps little handsat the sink

Aqueduck Products make it easier for children to use the bathroom sink without help from Mom or Dad.

The company makes a faucet extender that funnels water forward in the sink so small children can reach the water. Its handle extender attaches to a handle of a double-handle faucet to enable kids to turn it.

The faucet extender comes in five colors and sells for $12.99 at www.peachyco.com. The handle extender is expected to be available this month for $19.99. Shipping is extra.

Set the table for romance

Most of us pull out the stops only when we're entertaining a crowd. Moll Anderson thinks that same kind of attention should be lavished on that one special person.

She's encouraging readers to do just that with her new book, “Seductive Tables for Two: Tablescapes, Picnics, & Recipes That Inspire Romance.”

Anderson, an interior designer and familiar TV presence, makes a case for using a table for two to set the table for romance. She shares her vision for 16 intimate encounters, from a sunrise breakfast to a nightcap in front of the fire. She includes decorative details, recipes and helpful information such as ideas for themes and guidance on choosing colors.

“Seductive Tables for Two” is published by Moll Anderson Productions and sells for $19.95 in softcover.
