  1. WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    Prayers for Mr. Momo! Slow it down dude! I ran a few more errands today. I think I have everything up to date and beyond. Some bills are due once a year (Sam's) or twice a year (Jeep ins.) and they are paid up. Mortgage is on a auto deduct account and I put enough in that account to get me to the end of the year. So, I can sail along for awhile with mostly utility bills and what ever I owe on the monthly charge card bills. I think my winter nesting urges are starting to kick in. Happens every fall. I ended up at Wal-Mart and did some stocking up. I got another case of 1/2 gallon canning jars. I don't have any plans for them but somehow an empty jar soon fills up. We've had rain for two days now. If it isn't raining it looks like it's getting to start. Temp in the mid 80's.
  2. CANNING

    They look delicious! Lots of work at one time but after they are canned...it's easy eating for a long time

    I've ordered from them before too and I've never had any problems with their products. I got all of my freeze dried fruit from them. The last sale I posted I ordered some dehydrated shallots. I don't think I've ever seen any shallots in my grocery store. If I did buy fresh ones...by the time I'd buy enough to dry, prepare them and use the electricity to dry them, it would probably cost more to do it myself. They should arrive today or tomorrow. I like the containers they come in too. They take up a lot less room than a #10 can. I do transfer the food into a 1/2 gallon Ball jar but I save the plastic jugs for other things.

    The older I get, the more my teeth float around. Kinda like an old horse. I have those dental floss on a stick things and I like them but I wanted a single pick for a fast poke. They last for nearly forever. I've been to Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Dollar Tree, Big Lots, Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens. Only Wal-Mart and Walgreens had the kits that were too expensive for what I want. I guess they last too long and are not disposable so they don't want to sell them. Suppose I'll try Amazon next.

    Doing fine up here. I mowed the lawn today. I went to KFC for a treat. I don't feel guilty about that fast food. I get one breast that I debone and skin before I eat it and a side of corn and green beans. Sometimes an added cole slaw side. I forgot to go to K-Mart while I was out. I still need a dental pick. I have a small gap between two back teeth and food always gets between them. Drives me crazy---er. I tried to get one at Wal-Mart and all they had was a kit with the pick, mirror, gum stimulator and something strange looking. It was over $11.00 and I didn't want to spend that much for stuff I wouldn't use. Ohhhh, I should try Dollar Tree first. I'll try there first this evening. While out mowing I noticed my neighbors (the nice ones) 2 water barrels. He made a little enclosure around them. It looks very nice. It kind of looks like a little tool shed. I know what it is though because I know that's where the barrels are kept. It's built right up against their house by their garden. Very well thought out. I'll charge up my camera tonight and try to sneak a picture of it tomorrow.

  7. WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    I always try to remember to remove my batteries in less often used things too. Things like yard tools, summer fans, rarely used remotes etc. I found some of those tiny Ziploc type plastic bags at the craft store and use them to store the gently used batteries in.Then I either tape or rubber band the battery bag to the seasonal remotes. They last 2-3 seasons that way and I know what goes where. I think the next time I get another bathroom scale I'm going to switch over to one of those cheap spring type scales. The last one I got was a Weight Watchers type scale and it turned out to be more complicated than I need to deal with. When I finally got it figured out, after about 2 months, the battery died and I had to dig out the instructions and reset all over again. It's one of those things I don't use very often to keep the batteries from corroding. My eyesight isn't all that great any more either and trying to read those tiny unlighted numbers from 5.2 feet away isn't getting any easier. And how often do I really need all of that information? I can just look behind me and figure out my BMI for the day. Good links Mt.Rider. I think I'll check out those no leak batteries when I need to start buying more. If I can find them. The two AA's that leaked were next to each other so I figured one set off the other one. Annarchy, good idea about storing in the fridge. As it is now, I store the ones downstairs in a plastic box in a drawer and the ones upstairs in the same type of box in a closet. Oh, to have a one story house...

    Be sure to check your stored batteries often. Sigh. I needed one today and found two AA Duracell batteries dated 2017 had leaked. Also a 9 volt Duracell battery dated 2018 had leaked and the bottom was bulging. I know it's 2017 today but I would have thought they would have lasted until the end of the year at least. And the 9 volt should have another year left. If I hadn't needed one and if I hadn't stored them in a clear-ish plastic container I would have never noticed. I think I'm going to put batteries on my 'last minute' shopping list that I have. The list of things to run to the store for in an emergency warning...if we get one. I'll still keep a good supply on hand because I always do but I won't over do it unless I feel moved to do so. It's kind of a "rock and a hard place" huh? We say to keep them stored up but if we can't rotate through them fast enough then they leak and are useless. It doesn't help that they can't even make it to the expiration date. Fortunately, I only have one thing that uses 2...D size batteries and it is a yard tool. They last for 2+ years probably because I bring them in the house during the winter. Have you seen the price of size D batteries? No way would I stock up on them and have them leak. I think I got a stinging on the last toilet paper I got too. My own fault though. It's the same brand (Northern) but I didn't notice it didn't say 'double roll' on it until I already opened it and was putting it away. It was only an 8 pack but still. At least they won't last long and I can replace them soon. LOL. They are little. No way am I dipping into my stash. I should have bought a bale of them the last time I was at Sam's Club. Betcha I will the next time I go. Bet I'll pay more attention to the packaging too! I have TP stashed all over the house but when my supply under the sink runs low, I rush out and buy a little 8 pack. Issues...I haz em.

    Holding you up in prayers!
  10. H. IRMA.....Darlene's in Miami

    10 is old for a Dane. Their life span is between 8-10. They are usually retired around that time too. This dog must have been one of the first to be placed. The cameras didn't go live until 2012 so it was before the 'camera people' time.

    It is sad. I'm sure there are a lot of heartbreaking stories out there that we never hear about.

  13. H. IRMA.....Darlene's in Miami

    I heard something about an airline that was offering $99.00 flights out of Florida right before Erma hit. I don't remember the details though. This is from a person who has one of 'our' service dogs in Florida. I'm leaving out the personal info to protect their privacy. I am in SW Florida. The hurricane didn't do any damage to our houses. However my parents and I were ordered to evacuate and went to an evac shelter sat afternoon, where my dad got sick. At around 11pm I called 911. The worst part of the storm had not started. Unfortunately my dad had multiple pulmonary embolisms and died right in front of us. The EMTs worked on him and got him to the hospital but once the clots moved he was essentially dead. My 10 yr old dane was the most well behaved dog in the whole shelter including all the other service dogs. When they were working on my dad, my dogs best buddy, he laid at attention on his mat and didn't move or say a word. He did not take his eyes off my dad. Its like he knew something was wrong. We were there for 48 hours, almost 24 on lockdown, no communication or news, knowing my dad was dead, with a storm outside that we thought might be destroying our homes. It was pretty horrible but I had a comforting dog next to me and so did everyone else in our section, including the children who came to see him for pets and hugs. My dog didn't have one accident, didn't pant or get anxious. He helped me up and down the steps very slowly just like the best of them. He was such a trooper.

    Well...you are right too. LOL Silly Internet.

    She has been on. You must have just missed her. She posted yesterday (I think) in the canning and cooking forums. Also a couple of posts up above. Were you thinking about Sass? Someone (I think...again) it was Snapshotmiki said she was occasionally on Facebook and Sass said she was just real busy concentrating on her writing and not doing a lot of online stuff. Please correct me if I'm wrong Miki.
