  1. Quick update

  2. Fire & Ice Pickles

    Thanks for looking. I guess I am out of luck unless I run across someone selling them.
  3. Fire & Ice Pickles

    I can find recipes but they all say to put them in the frig. I am thinking heating up to a boil and then waterbath for 10 minutes. The basis of these pickles is dill pickles and most people I have talked to use commercial canned dills. thanks
  4. Fire & Ice Pickles

    Does anyone can Fire & Ice Pickles? The only recipes I can find are for refrigerator pickles. Knew someone that canned them but she has passed away and didn't write down her recipes.
  5. price surveys over the years

    I do a bit of shopping at WM. Agree that some of the "Great Value" products are good and some not so good. I definitely use the price matches. There have changed it so you can show the advertised prices on your cell phone. I have "heard" that they will be going to a point that if you can't show it on your cell, you are out of luck but that hasn't happened here. One WM that I go to will only match advertised prices in the same town. They are the only town with a grocery store in the county. Haven't really noticed a large difference in the checkout times. If I don't have a price match, I usually go to the self-checkout if I only have a few things.
  6. It can happen anytime

    Haven't heard of any serious injuries but some people had to leave their houses by the windows. Here they are calling it straight line winds. Some areas of Shelby County have some OLD, LARGE trees. They showed a picture of a large white oak that was supposed to be over 100 years old. It shattered. The woman walking next to it was dwarfed by it. As of today, there are 35,000 customers still without power. The forecast high for today for Memphis is 90. People that use SNAP benefits are lined up around the block to get replacement benefits to replace the food they lost due to the power outage. Their power had to be off more than 12 hours. There was damage in other areas nearby but not much on the news about them. Of course, the TV news comes out of Memphis and the local paper is a part of the USA Today network so other areas don't get a lot of notice.
  7. It can happen anytime

    They are now saying that the main part of this storm affected a path 240 miles long. Jonesboro, AR to Tupelo, MS. In a location on the north side of Memphis/Shelby County, they showed an area 200 yards in diameter where the trees were laid over in the middle of a wooded area. Something about the wind coming straight down. Still over 40,000 customers without power. Lots of burglaries and lots of businesses that are going to having trouble opening up again. Plenty of people without insurance or way to get trees out of their yard or off their houses. The city only takes care of the roads and the power company clears the power lines. Other things are the responsibility of the homeowner.
  8. It can happen anytime

    You can need your preparedness articles at any time. Just ask the people in Shelby County (Memphis), Tennessee. They had thunderstorms over the weekend. Unfortunately, the storms came with high winds. At last report, over 70,000 homes/businesses had no power. At first it was 180,000 houses/businesses. Some will not get power for a week. This is just in Shelby County, other counties were also affected. These people are all upset and ill prepared. The newspaper website and the television stations (not a lot of help if you don't have power) are talking about where businesses are open and where get to food and where to get your electronic devices charged. LARGE trees are down. Sometimes through the middle of houses. And the Red Cross is there. They have ONE shelter for the entire county. Hint: over 500,000 people. We are about 35 miles from Memphis. We got some wind and some rain (2 1/4") and quite a bit of lightning/thunder but no damage. Our power was out along with most of the area served by our co-op. It was overnight and back on in 6 hours. You just never know.

  10. Gardening Must-Read - Herbicide Threat

    I have read other articles about Grazontm. Not a good thing. My question--is there a residual in animals that are fed this hay and then butchered? After all, Round-uptm is just to kill weeds also.
  11. Carjacked

    Hugs for both of you. Be careful. Will be praying for her healing and ya'lls safety.
  12. Been a while, but I'm back ^_^

    Welcome back
  13. Needing Prayer

  14. Labels

    My phone is for when I leave the house. Doesn't hardly work at the house anyway. So I use an AT&T pay as you go phone. In the winter, the $25 lasts me at least the three months the minutes are good. I use more during the summer since I am at the farmers market every Saturday. We have quite a few different charges around the house. And A/C adapters. I use string tags to label them. Also works to label all the plugs going into the power strip on my computer.
  15. Need some jars?

    I mentioned craigslist to him. He is not too much on computers (he is 75+) but his son is and I think they will be doing that. He may be selling at First Monday in Ripley, MS to finally get rid of everything canned and I am going to suggest that he at least take the new ones there to maybe sell. He offered them to me (I don't use quarts) but also a couple of other canned foods vendors at the market. They turned them down. Apparently prefer to pay the much higher price at Wal-Mart. He and his late wife bought jars by the dozens of cases from the local Fred's. Fred's usually has the best prices around here but the local manager also gave him a better price due to how much they bought at one time.
