Re: What do you do for frugal fun/entertainment?

There's a pool in the subdivision, paid for by HOA dues. DH and the kids go there a couple times a week. I get 'me' time while they're gone, usually I read forums, LOL. Outside of that it's too hot (115 w/the heat index) to do much of anything outdoors here. Today I'm making the kids clean their roo...

Re: Preparing for Disasters

Tornadoes are somewhat common here ("tornado alley" - Oklahoma) and finally after 24 years of living here I have a storm shelter, courtesy of my mom who apparently has been very uptight about tornadoes the whole 24 years.

Re: MSG - fiction or fact

I only avoid it because it gives me headaches.

Re: Rx drugs and overdose - i.e. Prince

eventually they dissolve and leach out into the water supply. That was my concern, too. Fortunately I'm rarely drugged, LOL. I'll have to see if our new tiny community on the outskirts of a big city has a drug round-up next time we have anything serious. Which hopefully won't be for a looong time. :)

Re: Auto loading videos

Is there software that will block them? If so I need it, they lock everything up here. I put the task manager in the background and check it while reading, once its sluggish I check there and whatever process has over a million k of memory trying to run, I end that process.

Re: Rx drugs and overdose - i.e. Prince

Maybe it was just a matter of finding enough sympathetic doctors (he'd reportedly really hurt himself long-term with those high-platform shenanigans in his younger days) and enough individual pharmacies that no one really had the "whole" picture of everything he was taking, how much and how often.
