  1. Today
  2. Lidil has a 'rotating junk' isle that is in the back corner near the frozen. I often find really good deals like .50 for a can of coconut milk or canned artichoke for a dollar. You have to look through all the other overpriced stuff, but they often have a few good, cheap items there. Also they usually have the cheapest Italian sausages and fancy cheeses-- which is hubbies favorite dinner.
  3. Ambergris that is great news. I go for my phys. next month. I am hoping everything turns out good for me this time around. Need to try harder to get my A1C down. but I have been eating to many carbs and need to start cutting back again. Seems I do that every winter. To many carbs. Can I blame it on the cold weather? This morning I went to dentist and then went to Auto Zone to have my computer checked on car. Seems the engine light just loves to come on at any given time and then by the time you get it down to be checked it goes out. So got to Auto Zone and when I parked and turned engine off it was on. When the girl came out to check the problem it was off again but she was able to get the code. Seems the transmission sensor has a short saying it is over heating. So now I need to make appt. with the care dealership as it is under warranty. Then came home and did a little work around house and then off to Lidil's store. Their prices are really going up and they have a lot less food and more junk than anything else. So we just picked up a few sale items and came home. DH went with me which surprised me as he was sound asleep and I woke him up to see if he wanted to go. He said yes and got himself together and went. So he got some walking in today. Though it did tire him out more this time. Made taco's for dinner tonight using the last of my canned hamburger from 2013. Need to start watching for some hamburger sales again so I can get more canned.
  4. Jeepers, I saw something about that early this morning. Wondering what happened to them. Hoping they were taken to a hospital for treatment.
  5. Phillippinans 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. The possibilities of prayer are to be seen in its accomplishments in earthly matters. Prayer reaches to everything that concerns people, whether it be the body, the mind or the soul. Prayer takes in the needs of the body, such as food and clothes, and concerns itself with business and finances- in fact everything that belongs to this life, as well as those things that have to do with the eternal interests of the soul. The achievements of prayer are seen not only in the large things but also in the small things. Dear Lord, I thank you for Your hand in the important earthly matters, but also for your presence in the little things of life. Amen. Lord, again I ask for protection for all on this form and their families from this coronavirus. I ask that you be with those that have the virus and that you would put a healing hand on each and every one of them. I ask for healing for those with MS, and others that are going through therapy and any other illnesses that they are going through. I ask for healing for my DH as he goes to doctor tomorrow about his test. That it be only the meds going through the liver that can be corrected and nothing more as he has been through so much already. Father I ask that you speak to my Grandson's heart as he is struggling with finding and keeping a job. He has not been doing as he should be and badly needs your guidance in his life. Help him to see his ways are not your ways. Guide us and protect us from whatever comes from the things of this earth. I pray for our president and all of the government that they will repent and see the way this country is heading and turn it around before it is to late. Help them to see that keeping you out of our country will bring it down and cause things to get worse. Thank you Father for all you do for us. In Jesus name Amen
  6. I saw a video today from British TV. They were talking about a couple who were on the ship. I gathered, that the man had been vlogging from his cabin and talking about how everything was okay. They had an inside cabin and only went on deck during their allotted time and always with masks. They think they were probably infected from the food servers. Then they got the knock on the door. Both tested positive for the coronavirus. They were told they were going to a Japanese hospital. Then they found out they were actually going to a hostel! With no phone, no wi-fi, no doctor and yet they tested positive. He thinks they are just being silenced because of all of his vlogging. I wish I could post the link. But it was on Good Morning Britain on youtube. Their names are David and Sally Abel.
  7. Mt. Rider, I am so glad you are not diabetic. I have been trying not to let it rule me. But somedays. the good food wins. though mine is type 2 and not to bad. I still like eating things I know I shouldn't. My mothers side of family almost all had it. Rest up. You will need it for round 2 of that snow. Just glad that so far we have not gotten it. But I also know that we have had our worse snows in March. Kappy, we are going to have to come have coffee with you in the morning. But I think you will be about ready to get sprung and going home.
  8. Joyfilled, you have put your finger on it. I had my mind set based on Zika, when a different governor was announcing cases as they were diagnosed by doctors. The current governor has decided we don't need to know about cases until they are confirmed by the CDC, even though the CDC is running way behind on testing. So... The US has 29 confirmed cases as of today. Yesterday there were 15 confirmed cases. How many unconfirmed actual cases are out there? How many are nearby?
  9. NOPE.....I just had ALL the tests with new doc and I'm not diabetic. Quite likely the snow removal. I come from a long genetic line of sugar addicts....and they all lived into their mid-90's. My dad's the 3rd in that line that we know of.....eating chocolates and other things by the box in their elder years. All very thin and all functioning.....none in nursing home. Go figure? Another day with snow and more coming. Have I mentioned that I PARTICULARLY hate snow this month? Not much to do when locked in the house..... .....going a bit snowbound-crazy!!! But....thankful I'm feeling well enough to be bothered by it! MtRider
  10. Now I'm hungry and I ate dinner. Those are keepers. Going in my collection. Thank you Kappy.
  11. Mt. Rider, I wouldn't let DH buy me any candy. I would eat it and I am diabetic. And you best not be getting sick again. Maybe you were just tired from shoveling snow. Hope you are not diabetic, if so that could explain the candy. Bad girl.
  12. Yesterday
  13. Growing up in Wisconsin we had our own culinary specialities. I kept recipes because sometimes I get craving for those special things....even if they are calorie laden they sure are tasty! DOOR COUNTY STYLE FISH BOIL AT HOME Fish boils are a popular picnic item along Lake Michigan...and a fixture on Friday Nights when they are done by many restaurants on a huge scale. Of course, a good fish boil always includes lots of melted butter to dip the fish in (a poor mans lobster kind of thing) pour over the boiled potatoes, and sop up with rye bread! Dont forget lots of coleslaw! This is a smaller version....serves two at my house. 1 lb . of Pollock fillets cut into 3 inch pieces (a good rustic fish boil contains whatever fish is freshly caught that day - mixtures of everything from lake trout, to white fish, to salmon,...) 8 baby red potatoes 1 large onion quartered any Shrimp and Crab Boil seasoning in a tea infuser (optional) Butter melted Lemon Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes, onion, and seasoning, if desired. When the potatoes are soft, add the fish. It will cook quickly, so start checking the fish after a minute or two. When the fish is done, drain in a colander and return to the pot. Serve with melted butter and lemon, salt and pepper, rye breead and coleslaw. WISCONSIN CHEESE SOUP This stuff is calorie laden, but delicious....a great soup on a meatless day. 2 (14-ounce) cans (3 1/2 cups) chicken broth or veggie broth if it is Lent and you are abstaining from meat 1/2 cup chopped carrot 1 small (1/2 cup) onion, chopped 1 rib (1/2 cup) celery, chopped 1/2 cup beer or milk 20 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O LakesĀ® Deli American, chopped 4 drops hot pepper sauce 1/3 cups all-purpose flour Place 1 cup broth, the carrot, onion and celery in 4-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat 8-10 minutes or until onion is softened. Add 2 cups remaining broth, milk, cheese, and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat to medium; cook 5-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Place flour into bowl; stir in remaining chicken broth. Stir flour mixture into soup. Cook, stirring constantly, 1-2 minutes or until soup is slightly thickened. SHEBOYGAN STYLE BRATS Johnsonville Bratwurst do indeed come from that red barn in a town called Johnsonville, just a few miles west of Sheboygan. Every year they have a bratwurst festival where the beer and brats attract wurst lovers far and near! 4 cups beer (not dark) 1/4 cup Bavarian mustard 2 tablespoons ketchup 4 large onions 12 uncooked bratwursts 6 hard rolls, halved and well buttered Accompaniments: sliced dill pickles Bavarian mustard In a large deep heavy skillet stir together beer, mustard, and ketchup. Cut 1 onion into thick slices and add to beer mixture. Bring beer mixture to a boil and in it simmer bratwursts, uncovered, turning occasionally, 20 minutes. Prepare grill. Remove bratwursts from beer mixture, discarding beer mixture. Cut remaining 3 onions into thick slices, keeping slices intact. Grill bratwursts with onion slices on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals, turning onions once, until bratwursts are cooked through and golden brown and onions are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Put a pair of "brats," cut in half lengthwise and stacked, on each roll. Top brats with grilled onion, pickles, and mustard. For the bratwurst stands, they keep a "bath" of beer and grilled onions simmering at the back of the grill and put the grilled bratwurst back in it to keep warm until needed. No waiting that way and the Boy Scouts make oodles of money with their brat-frys. SAURKRAUT SALAD Kraut and brats just seem to go together but not everyone likes the sour relish. This salad tames the sourness to a sweet sour salad instead and is a popular smorgasboard and buffet dish on Friday nights. It makes up well using artificial sweetener instead of sugar adding a little zing to a low-calorie or diabetiic diet. Any leftovers do not last long for me. SAUERKRAUT SALAD 1 (1 lb) can sauerkraut, drained but not rinsed 1 cup celery, chopped fine 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped fine 2 tablespoons onions, chopped fine 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup salad oil 1/3 cup cider (I use white) or 1/3 cup white vinegar (I use white) Mix chopped vegetables with sauerkraut. Heat sugar, oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper over low heat just until sugar dissolves. Cool and pour over vegetables. Chill overnight.
  14. Corn nuts are a special large kerneled dry corn (the size of a dime) which are roasted like soy nuts, then salted & sold for snacking. Nice & crunchy....I think they are similar to parched corn but not exact duplicate
  15. HA! coffeepot returned in time to make a hot pot for breakfast.
  16. I hope you've got the corporate office straightened out by now! That was very unprofessional of them to take something from your room that was yours without speaking to you! I would be complaining to their bosses!
  17. grrrr I am a little aggravated tonight. While I was gone to the doctor today my coffeemaker disappeared. Did some checking and the 'corporate' folks came by and decided I could not have it because I might burn myself with hot water, or leave it on and start a fire, or....something.....so they confiscated it. No note, no explaination. It is not on the list of "prohibited items" they gave me. So now I am back to trying to get coffee in the morning. On my tray I keep getting sweet tea, or nothing. It says on my food slip I do not do sweet tea, bring coffee or milk. Bu no, I get sweet tea every meal. The only way I have gotten any coffee so far is to provide my own (and I happily share with others). So I am quite miffed. Im not here because Im dotty.....or careless.....or even fall down a lot....I do not have memory issues.......but for PT after surgery. Apparently corporate folks think that once you hit 65 your brains dissolve and you need a keeper. I do not appreciate being treated like Im senile. Oh well, tomorrow I will go vehemently and vociferously complain and demand my pot back so I can ship it home....if they had even talked to me I'd have agreed to send it home, but no, they took it while I was out getting medical tests. How.....rude! How....condescending!..... tomorrow I go back to begging for coffee and if I am lucky I will get one cup....cold.....4 hours after I wake up and want one....IF I go to the kitchen and get it myself. I am Soooooo Glad Im going home soon. They can stick their 'sweet tea'.....
  18. Dee, I hope the virus is not where near where they are. Hope to see those pictures if you are able to post. Sounds great.
  19. I went through my prepping books awhile ago and have a book called Dare to Prepare. It is the 3ed Edition 2009 by Holly Drennan Deyo. So pulled that one out to see if it had anything on Pandemics. I think I can see why the failure in keeping it contained to a point. One being the N95 mask. I am going to have to check mine as I have not checked them in over 5 years. There are different types of them. They are recommending as one type of mask the 3M M40 mask. You can google that and it will show you what it is. I have some reading to do on this. Another one is MSA. These cost between $160 to $350 from when this book was published. What I have is a mask that fits tight but it is cloth with a small filter. Nothing like these they are showing. So that could be one problem. The mask, no matter what type you use must be checked for leaks. To do that place one hand over the air hole on the filter. Breathe in and out. If the mask partially collapses and stays collapsed until you remove your hand, the seal is good. Now that would be a question that makes you wonder, when they put the mask on are they checking it for leaks after putting it on. This book has a guide on mask. I am going to try to take a picture of it and put on computer if I can. Then try to send It to here. Not sure if it will work as this computer is so old and I haven't put any pictures on it in a long time. But will give it a try. There is a lot of info about the mask. then it goes into Decontamination, assuming no severe Exposure. It talks about full protective clothing, hat, gloves, and mask. It talks about a decontamination shower. Basicly it would be building and outside shower like you see at some pools. Using a garden hose to reach a faucet, a kiddie wading pool with a 5 foot or 6 foot diameter. 10 foot x 12 foot length of 4 mil plastic sheeting, garden tank sprayer. 10 foot step ladder Optional. ( not sure what that is for) and duck tape. These are the things to make the shower with. This book has so much info it would be worth it to buy if you don't already have this book.
  20. My nephews wife just posted 3 mins. ago with a picture of a whale coming out of the water and another picture of a rainbow. Said she can't wait until tomorrow. No mention of the flu. I wonder if they even know about it yet.
  21. Mt. Rider, I have noticed prayer is all over this forum and that is one of the biggest reasons I love this forum. We all need prayer from time to time. So praying for each other is the best medicine. So with that I will start the prayer chain. The many statements in God's word set forth the possibilities and far-reaching nature and effects of prayer. Yet the range of prayer is as great as trouble as universal as sorrow and infinite as grief. And prayer can relieve all these evils that come to God's people. There is no tear that prayer cannot wipe away. There is no depression of spirit that it cannot elevate. There is no despair that it cannot dispel. Prayer always brings God to our relief to bless and to aid, and it brings marvelous revelations of his power. Psalm 50:15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me. Lord God I know that in this life we will have troubles, But thank you that we can know that we don't have to lose heart, because You have overcome this world. Heavenly Father, we ask that you protect us, our families, those on this forum and for those that are in the areas where this virus is at. We ask for protection for those that must travel and could be exposed without knowing it, to keep special protection around them to keep them safe from this coronavirus as well as the other names this virus has now taken on. Help us to keep our faith strong in you and to not fall away from that faith. Help us to know how to prepare for this pandemic, if it becomes necessary to do so. Father we thank you for all you do for us with healing, and protection and given us the strength to get through all that is going on in this world. In Jesus Name--- Now for anyone who wants to be next, please carry this prayer chain on down the line. I Think it will be very beneficial for us to keep God first in our preps and for guidance against this virus and anything else we could be struggling with.

  23. Yes ma'am, I have been. things - places - areas - that we handle throughout one shopping trip and we have no idea who has handled the items we pick up or if the stock person or the delivery driver or someone at the manufacturing plant was sick. Also, not taking into account how many customers picked up the item and put it back and who they came in contact with first. Yikes!
  24. My driveway is in MUCH better shape for the hour I spent grooming the ice yesterday. I'm feeling it some today tho.... Less energy. That was expected it so it's fine. But this evening, I'm feeling.....sheeesh, I hope I'm not getting actually SICK again. Don't feel right....almost nausea. Made/ate some rice tonite. Don't think anything I ate earlier was suspect. I have been eating an increase in sweets after having minimal for 5 wks...... Could that upset things? Well, there is this Valentines box of chocolates sitting right there.... MtRider Hmph!
  25. This is exactly what this Streams in the Desert is for, Little Sister. Go for it. Tho you'll notice we kinda all over Mrs.S. MtRider
