" She focuses on one task for five minutes every day, or picks up, puts away or throws out five items from one drawer, shelf or closet. What can you do about stacks of magazines or a "jumble" of books? Put everything in baskets, Heloise says. She gathered piles of videotapes and put them in two matching wicker baskets. They have a neat spot on top of her big-screen television.

Decorative switch plates make a difference While shopping with her husband at a lumber/home-improvement store, Heloise noticed a selection of decorative light switch plates. "There are some darling ones out there," she says. She took the do-it-yourself approach in her guest bathroom, which has "beigy bamboo" wallpaper in an Oriental theme on some of the walls. Heloise spray-painted the switch plate black and drew in a little bamboo with a felt-tipped marker.

Wallpaper border adds a nice touch Heloise got the following spruce-up idea from one of her assistants: She stapled lengths of wallpaper border to the walls in a place where she lived for a short time.

katec@herald-mail.com Pop singer Dionne Warwick had hits with many Hal David and Burt Bacharach tunes - "Windows of the World" among them. Some of the song's lyrics describe the dilemma of anyone who might have wanted to wash windows this spring: "The windows of the world are covered with rain/Where is the sunshine we once knew?" The spring window cleaning season has been hard for Roy Rowland, owner of Hagerstown-based We Do Windows, a janitorial and window-cleaning business.

I had a lot of things to be thankful for last week, chief among them being that I was finally able to send my America Onhold account to that big browser in the sky. AOL may be one of the crummiest enterprises since the U.S. automobile industry in the '70s. Busy signals, frequent disconnections, a browser with the firepower of a pea shooter, unwanted sales pitches, slow speeds, routine logjams - I could go on. And I was prepared to go on at length when I made The Call last week to cancel.

I are so smart To all men: Hey, guys, I'm onto something, and oh boy, is this great. To all women: Do not read. Go straight to the Lifestyle section. There's a wicked Heloise in today. OK, fellows, listen closely. I had this epiphany over the holidays and frankly I don't know why I hadn't thought of it sooner. Or used it to my advantage sooner. Here's the deal.
