Re: Gas prices!!! What are yours?

I haven't been out of the house today, but yesterday it was $1.45 a gallon at the "expensive" station at the foot of the hill out of our neighborhood.

Edited to add: Whoa! GasBuddy says it dropped to $1.42 overnight.

Re: Feburary Use It Up and Recycle Challenge

Try hot sauce next time, Blonde. Eggs with hot sauce are mighty good. We had a good-sized heel of homemade bread that was getting stale, so I've turned it into seasoned croutons and are toasting them in the oven. The seasoning was free from Penzey's, so win-win.

He or she should be able to soothe her and ease her fear of dying. Hospice usually has chaplains assigned to that service. It would be good to talk t...

Oh, LWolfT, I am so sorry! {{{hugs}}} Sending prayers and good thoughts that she recovers. It's scary and hard when they get old and get so sick. The care is outstanding at a 24-hour emergency vet hospital, but the bill is too. :(

Re: Daily Check in Feb 6
