Re: Daily Check-in August 18, 2019

Rinty, the cheddar with apple and chili sounds fabulous! The distribution of your garden bounty is making me laugh, as I remember my dad loading up paper grocery bags of tomatoes, peppers and yellow crookneck squash to leave on doorsteps early in the mornings. I have been puttering productively toda...

Re: Are you buying life insurance and why?

We have life insurance on each other for a couple of reasons: Our house is not yet paid off, though will be in two years; should he die before me, I will need extra income until I retire; should I die before him, he will need to hire a helluva good housekeeping service. :-D Our cremations are alread...

Janet, sending hugs to you and Teddi. (((HUGS))) Penny, I hope your ear feels better soon. Maggie, I too am interested in your essential oil. The arthritis in my knee is really bothering me.

Re: Daily check in August 12, 2019

I have spent countless hours this spring and summer helping a homeless man with no income and no health insurance try to get the care he needs. I've used every frugal trick I can think of to help keep him properly nourished, clothed, clean, and feeling that he matters. But this I cannot change: He's...
