  1. @Mother Any chance it's this? https://archive.org/details/newcyclopdiaof00elle Otherwise, check here: https://archive.org/search.php?query=Cyclopaedia&&and[]=subject%3A"Home economics" It might be in that list. If it is, you can download a PDF of it.
  2. I love Alice Borchardt's books. I wish there were more. FYI, she's Anne Rice's sister. If you like historical romance, Siri L Mitchell's books are great and generally have a Christian bent to them. She also has some more modern ones set in France that are some of my favorite books ever. They sound like (and generally are) fluffy romance novels, but there's always a bit of something in them to ponder. Kissing Adrien and Chateau of Echoes. A bit that I love from Kissing Adrien:
  3. That makes me twitch in so many different ways. 1. Neither vaccine has gone through the standard safety testing by itself. 2. They definitely haven't been studied for safety together. 3. They definitely haven't been studied for efficacy together, even by the "reduction of symptoms" definition of efficacy. What if they end up stimulating the immune system in an unexpected way?
  4. It took about an hour to get through to a live person, but everything went smoothly after that. The lady said there were only 2 of them answering the phones for scheduling! Test came back negative, so just my usual respiratory crud. Popping massive amounts of supplements to try to avoid antibiotics.
  5. I've been calling trying to get a COVID test for the last 45 minutes. Lines are busy. That doesn't bode well.
  6. Ordered. Along with The Guide to Healthy Eating, as Amazon had it coded incorrectly in their system and I received the same wrong book twice when trying to order it... $20 for each book, $5 shipping in the US.
  7. Funny, but (Don't even ask how they got a whole wheat gluten-free crust. Must be some of that GMO wheat...) Found on a friend's Facebook page... CALLER: Is this Pizza Hut? GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza. CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number, sorry. GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Pizza Hut last month. CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza. GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir? CALLER: My usual? You know me? GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust. CALLER: Super! That’s what I’ll have. GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust? CALLER: What? I don’t want a vegetarian pizza! GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir. CALLER: How the hell do you know that? GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years. CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetarian pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol. GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you purchased only a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once at CVS Pharmacy, 4 months ago. CALLER: I bought more from another Pharmacy. GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your credit card statement. CALLER: I paid in cash. GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement. CALLER: I have other sources of cash. GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your latest tax returns, unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law! CALLER: FOR REAL?? GOOGLE: I'm sorry sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you. CALLER: Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I'm going to an island without the internet, TV, where there is no phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me. GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. It expired 6 weeks ago... Welcome to the future!!!
  8. If you watch Ivor Cummins, it's because the lockdowns don't work (and people are getting cranky about it).
  9. Oh. Right. Ours came in like 2 days after it was made official.
  10. Plus add in the fact that American has by far the largest percentage of obese and overweight people in the world, which is a complication...and so many people have a lack of Vitamin C due to not eating fresh veggies & fruit (and too much sugar - it takes more vitamin C to process carbs!) and Vitamin D due to lack of outdoor time, plus a continual stream of sugar to suppress their immune system... Yeah, I’d be surprised if we didn’t have the highest number of deaths.
  11. Have you had training on how to properly move him? If not, it might be worth it to hire someone to come in and show you. They could also make suggestions on what exact equipment would make both your lives easier.
  12. Hubby said he woke up because he coughed up a glob of mucus. My sinuses are arguing. They're talking about snow tonight. 'tis the season for respiratory crud...regardless of whether there is a pandemic.
  13. Our HEB has new Ball pint jars and lots of regular mouth lids.
  14. Luckily, my assistant hadn't come into the office before she was told. We think she's probably safe, but waiting on test results to be sure. I'm enjoying my coffee before everybody else gets up and it's time to load up the camper so we can leave once the roads thaw.
  15. I was in bed by 8. And up from 3 to 5. Then back in bed from 5 to 7.
  16. We have a light dusting this morning. We had more yesterday, but it melted. I'm heading into work in a few. My assistant came back from Christmas with the news that someone she had dinner with has now tested positive, so I'm going to be working my butt off to try to get everything that both of us normally do done today.
  17. They’re talking about 2-10 inches in west Texas, depending on exactly where you’re at, elevation, etc. Delaying a trip until Friday so we’re not driving in it.
  18. Was that supposed to be a thanks to euphrasyne?
  19. Nebulizer. I've used one a few times with very low dose iodine or colloidal silver in it.
  20. I'm confused about the question, unless you know someone else already spiked it.
  21. Yes, and I greatly appreciate you posting it.
  22. Some people down here are randomly freaking out because the overall numbers for Texas are so high. Well, duh. We have a ton of people. If you look at the numbers per 100,000 people, however, we seem to be middle to low.
  23. It would still end up with some of the starch in the ham. I wouldn't do it because nightshades are on my no-no list, but there are some who would decide that it's not that much, when there's no real way to measure how many carbs you're getting at that point.
