SUBSTITUTING PREGROUND SPICES FOR FRESH
Preground spices are sometimes your best option (you're not going to make your own garlic powder, for example) and can always fill in for whole. Be aware that ground spices are more densely packed, so when substituting, reduce the amount significantly; roughly 25 percent less is a good rule of thumb.Pikachu Mascot Costume

DOMESTIC AIRLINES BAGGAGE REQUIREMENTS
In a review of the top 13 U. S. domestic airlines’ policy, the following are approximate rules of thumb for baggage. Checked baggage: Measure height, width & length (Including closed handle & wheels) should be no larger than 62 total inches (approximately 30” x 20” x 12”). 50 pounds appears to be the standard weight for checked-in baggage without an additional fee. Carry-on baggage: 45 total inches is the most common allowed size (approximately 21” x 14” 10”). As these are general rules of thumb for baggage, the flyer need to check their specific airline to see if the rules have changed.
