  1. What she did was wrong, and she knew that, hence her "I'm sorry," but who knows the depths of her despair. I find it very sad that she felt robbing was her only way to get help. I really don't like to discuss religion because I will invariably make people mad and for that I am sorry, but I know people who claim the blessings of God and Jesus as their savior all day long and they spend thousands of dollars on vacations (beach multiple times a year, Disney every year, and many more places, while living in their $350k house), putting in new patios with fire pits, etc and it is their right to do
  2. We made the pot heater and were disappointed at its output. Maybe our expectations were too high, maybe it would help to layer more pots inside each other... maybe we'll do that and see what difference it makes.
  3. I'm sorry they are struggling, I know so many homeschoolers who are themselves struggling, they don't need more expenses either.
  4. our county extension office analyzes soil for like $8, and they will tell you what amendments you need. Might be worth checking into and seeing if they offer, and for how much, in your area.
  5. Not to be an alarmist, but if this is true it is something to take seriously. Brace yourselves... http://www.sott.net/article/277104-Russia-and-China-announce-decoupling-trade-from-Dollar-The-End-for-the-USA-is-nigh Russia and China announce decoupling trade from Dollar - The End for the USA is nigh‏Russia has just dropped another bombshell, announcing not only the de-coupling of its trade from the dollar, but also that its hydrocarbon trade will in the future be carried out in rubles and local currencies of its trading partners - no longer in dollars - see Voice of Russia Russia's t
  6. hadn't seen that, thanks for sharing. Reminds me of the movie American Blackout, we watched it end of last year I think. The grid went down for 10 days. The dramatization takes you through the lives and experiences of different people. Some not so good... Here is the link for anyone who hasn't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrNGotEslaw
  7. shredded more papers, this time 1 1/2 bags, shredded 2 bags a few weeks ago (going through the filing cabinet right now, will be going through every nook and cranny of this house by the time I'm done). Reorganized the hanging files. My problem is paper so I'm being ruthless, and its looking so much better. Still have a ways to go but I'm pleased with my progress. Was at the grocery store and they had the storage bags for sweaters that you use the vacuum to suck out the air, so I bought two boxes @ $2/apiece (two bags per box) so I'll be trying those out soon. My daughter was given several
  8. LOL, gotcha! I should have know that. My mind was going everywhere but that. TY!
  9. <blush> can you tell me what HBA stands for? We have started tucking money away, need to get better at it. A big ole pickle jar that my son made a label for, "Paradise Falls," which stands for <insert dream location of choice>
  10. how much did you take? I've been thinking about that. Might need to do a partial 'eat down mode' too. But I'm not comfortable wtih the idea of going through all of it. Not yet anyhow. But moving it 2000 miles sounds like a big deal too. Sigh.... I hated that the 2 times we moved cross country (kept most for local-ish moves). I'll be rethinking for our next move :/
  11. I posted in another thread about my decluttering, should have posted it here! We are hoping to move by the end of the year so now its decluttering and organizing so we can get the house ready to list. We have a shelf in our storage room where I stick my "pretty" things for more formal dinners and such that aren't used much, so I washed things and wrapped them up in paper and boxed them up --- 14 boxes (they are not very big) of misc things so far. Vases, picture frames, candlesticks, serving platters, baking pans, etc. The things that weren't my faves were donated. Had 2 boxes of donated
  12. I'll reverify the ones on this side. There was one in Norcross, maybe off of Peachtree Parkway or something like that, I'll have to ask my husband. It was small, not nearly as big as the one you shared.
