Reader's Exchange: She'd like a grain grinder, and has a Guitar Hero guitar to give away

In the true spirit of Reader's Exchange, Laura is looking for one item, and she has another item that she would like to donate. Laura has been enjoying baking and cooking with whole wheat, but since her friend with a wheat grinder has moved away, she no longer has a way to grind her wheat. She is trying to find a grain grinder that is suitable for milling wheat into flour. While she would prefer a stone grinder, any type would do, including the attachment for the KitchenAid artisan mixers. Laura has all the instruments for PlayStation 2 Rock Band (microphone, wireless guitar and drums) and a Guitar Hero guitar that need a new home. She does not have the game, but the instruments are in "like new" condition and are in need of new kids to enjoy them. Laura can be contacted at [email protected]

In the past five years, the Mad Hatters knitting group in Palm Harbor has made more than 1,000 hats for chemo patients, 400 baby caps for newborns and 200 lap blankets for hospice patients. Several years ago generous REXers gave them armloads of yarn, but they've been busy using it, and are in need of more to continue their projects. Any kind or color would do except for wool yarn. If you have yarn to donate, contact Deanna via email at [email protected] or by phone at (727) 772-6997.

René and Eve of Odessa have a very generous offer. They would like to give a 73-inch high-definition digital Mitsubishi projection TV to a senior center or deserving youth group. They say the television works perfectly indoors in an air-conditioned environment, but the colors change in excess humidity. To avoid this, René says to use air-conditioning to control the humidity. He says the surround-sound viewing feature on the TV is like a theater, and he thinks that it would be great for a large lounge or recreation room. If you are interested, you will need three hefty men and a long-bed pickup truck to take it away. René and Eve can be reached at (813) 407-8400.

It's always such fun to hear of the creative projects people are doing. Mindy of Safety Harbor is working on a wind chime project, and she is looking for "dead" keys (keys that don't fit anything anymore) to use in the wind chimes. Mindy lives in Safety Harbor and works in New Port Richey, and is willing to meet somewhere to pick them up. She can be reached at (727) 687-9083.
