Disappearing Posts

I typed a long post, tried submitting and it didn't take. So I used the "save draft" option and now I can't find it. Help! If it has disappeared is there a way to fix this problem of disappearing posts? Many of us seem to encounter this issue and it's so frustrating to type a long post only to have ...

Re: Daily Check In March 10, 2017

Rinty, LOL kids! Yesterday was outdoor lunch (which I love-much less noise). I had a group of first graders tattling on one another and told them twice to KNOCK IT OFF!!

Re: Do you tip for a take-out order?

My question; when you are paying by credit card (or debit card) do you write in the tip on the ticket and charge it long with the food amount?

Re: Daily Check in Feb 20, 2017

Good morning folks, Still morning here on the coast for another hour. Raining here. The forecast is for rain off and on all week. Extreme winds were forecast but have not happened. Fine with me.

Re: What Are Your Frugal Mantras ?

FIFO....First In First Out. An accounting term I learned long ago. I use this concept for my freezer and pantry storage. Now that I have a running list of what is here I go through it each day and pull the older items to be used and cross them off of my list as I use them. Newer items get added at t...
