  1. On my. That sweet little goat! Squeeeee. Something I learned on the dog website is when you give a newborn animal a bottle, be sure there are no bubbles in the bottle and tip it nipple down and express a few drops of liquid out before you give it to the baby. The reason is any air inside the bottle can be forced down the baby's throat and cause it to be aspirated into the lungs, cause choking, pneumonia or even death. It's that first initial spurt of liquid that can cause the harm.
  2. Fire breaks out in India's Covid vaccine manufacturing plant. https://nypost.com/2021/01/21/huge-fire-breaks-out-at-covid-19-vaccine-manufacturer-in-india/
  3. Littlesister, just be careful with OTC vitamins and herbs. Natural herbs are 'drugs' too and can do more harm than good if it's something your body doesn't need. They can also interact with any Rx you might take. I learned the hard way when I figured some potassium would add to my heart health. It didnt. Fainting became an issue. They might also become stronger or less potent over time too. Obviously, I didn't know what I was doing though. In my case a little knowledge was a dangerous thing. I'd probably sort through them and keep one or two bottles of each and pit
  4. I agree, it isn't over. When you least expect it...expect it. In other words, don't let your guard down.
  5. Good posts everyone. We all have our own opinions, values and especially our own personal problems. None of us are perfect and all have a lot to deal with and worry about. But one thing I know is we all care about each other and wish/hope/pray for the best for each other. We got through this election mess and we can get through the next crisis too. I love you all. Said with a quivering lip.
  6. Ambergris, I'm sad you feel that way. I feel like the only thing this group disagrees, and is vocal on, is politics. And hopefully that will be more quiet now. Politics and religion. No one agrees with them. I've bitten my tongue (sat on my fingers) many times too. And wrote a response and erased before hitting the send button. I think we all have from time to time. I'm sorry if I've ever made you feel bad or uncomfortable! I love reading your posts and have learned so much from you. Especially in the flu forum. In the grand scheme of things helping each other prep is
  7. Annarchy, I use graph paper to rearrange furniture too! Kappy, I didn't realize I was a southern cook. Seasoning greens with bacon and a splash of vinegar was a normal staple in my house. That includes cabbage and brussel sprouts. I cook like my grandmother did. Her relations came from Kentucky. I guess that's how we came to land in southern Indiana.
  8. I haven't watched the news in quite awhile now. I didn't watch any of the 'hello/goodbye' stuff yesterday either. About the only news I get is on the radio when I'm in the car or if something on the internet that catches my eye. Or on here.
  9. Wonder how they classify that at the Department of Motor Vehicles? I just noticed a spare tire on the front of the car/truck/camper. "Carpertruck"
  10. I think the future is already here!
  11. I remember too Dogmom. I think both movies came out on T.V. first. I remember they were the 'talk of the town' back then. I remember news people reminding viewers to not panic. It's just a work of fiction. I guess they didn't want a repeat of Orson Wells' War of the Worlds fiasco.
  12. I never gave much thought to an electric griddle before. But recently I was watching a video of a woman using one for pancakes and it looked like a good idea for making more than 1-2 at a time. Plus bacon and eggs etc. She has a large family and freezes alot. Her name is something like Jamerrill. Waffle irons are pretty inexpensive. I saw one that cost a little more ($63.00) but it is a Krups and makes four big waffles and the plates remove for washing. Probably worth the extra money. Kitchen items are where my stimulus check is going. I thought I had all the kitchen t
  13. That's probably why my stems are always spindly and die. That and I either over water or under water. I'm not good starting plants.
  14. One, maybe two, ultra-conservative sects of Amish make their own undies. They aren't allowed buttons or elastic. I'm not sure what they look like though. Maybe a draw string? I should have paid more attention to their clothsline.
  15. Funny you mentioned griddle Euphrasyne. I was just online looking for one. I want to do pancakes for a freezer. I'm thinking about a waffle iron too, for the same reason.
  16. We have been under a curfew for a couple of months now. I don't know why. Most people aren't out after 10:00 pm anyway. If they are its usually at a drive thru. I know it's targeted toward the bars. So just man up and put the curfew on the bars. They didn't hesitate closing churches down in the beginning. Isolation, curfew and masks have not brought our number of cases down. Quite the opposit.
  17. Sorry your trip was postponed Anarchy. I'm having intestinal issues today. Severe pain. I've got a pain in the gut and a pain in the butt. Makes me feel so so sorry for babies who have diaper rash. Anyway, I watched an old movie free on Tubi. I think it came out in the 80's. Gruesome. Remember Threads? About nuclear war and its effect on England. They talked about food...or rather lack of it a number of times. That perked my ears up. One guy said that food would be used as a weapon. Withheld as a punishment and given as a reward. Especially a reward for work.
  18. It's true mommato3boys. Some days you're the bird and some days you're the bee.
  19. That's a great set up Mother!
  20. Beans, beans The musical fruit The more you eat The more you toot The more you toot The better you feel So let's have beans For every meal. I can remember that from grade school but can't remember what I had for supper last night. Probably brussel sprouts.
  21. Get more undies indeed! I noticed a very short supply toward the end of last year. Probably about six months ago. I couldn't find any Hanes/Fruit of the Loom in my size. It's a common size. About three months ago I stopped in about 4 different Wal-Mart's and they were out of most sizes except for small and the fancy pants. I only buy white cotton. SO, I went on line and ordered a bunch of them to put away and not use until present drawers go raggety. Most of mine come in a 8-10 pack. I did the same with socks. Bras, I need. Socks and bras will be the same way if they
  22. Love the idea Annarchy. Would be nice if a person only got the leaves to dry!
  23. Hang in there Virginia. I've been hearing that the post office has been running very slowly since before Christmas. Personally, I wouldn't start to worry wonder until the end of the month.
