BH&G TV

In sixteenth-century France, the start of the new year was observed on April 1. But in 1562, a new calendar was introduced and New Year's Day was changed to the first of January. Some of the French who hadn't heard about the change continued to celebrate on April 1, and people played tricks on them and called them "April Fools." But there's nothing foolish about watching Better Homes and Gardens Television this month.

Paint Techniques

Put It in Reverse Even tried-and-true paint techniques look brand new when you combine unexpected colors with updated designs. Here, light-colored flowers on a darker glazed wall look hand-painted at first glance. But the technique, called reverse stenciling, is more foolproof than that.

You can cut a stencil any shape-- flowers, clouds, letters, shells, or other motifs in the room.

Close-Quarters Kitchen

Jane Christino and Joe Wolnski had big plans for their gloomy little box of a kitchen. The Illinois couple wanted more light, an efficient work space, and styling in character with their 1920s-era home.

6 steps to stronger families

Twenty-five years of research involving 14,000 families has uncovered this secret to building a stronger family: It takes commitment. Successful families-- those that avoid the daily dissension that often leads to divorce or abandonment-- build a wall of shared commitment around themselves, says Nick Stinnett, lead researcher and professor of human development and family studies at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Going to the playground?

Have fun. But remember, playgrounds can be dangerous. Each year, about 200,000 children end up in hospital emergency rooms with playground injuries-- many involving falls from too-high equipment onto too-hard surfaces. Nearly 70 percent of the injuries happen on public playgrounds, which recent studies show may be badly designed, with inadequate protective surfaces and poorly maintained equipment.
