  1. Gas prices have skyrocketed here now. Today in N.E. Ohio it was $3.08. The first time over $3.00 in my town ever. Last week on the Oh/In toll road gas was between $3.30 - $3.50. Sort of surprised me because I assumed the price of gas would be the same on the toll road within each state.

  3. The brown bears are back for the summer and the salmon are jumping. Scroll down just past the picture to see more cameras. This is a moveable camera so sometimes they get a close up of a bear. Brown Bear Cam - Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park | Explore.org
  4. Amen Maxine. I can still get down with the best of them! I just can't get back up again.
  5. You aren't being petty Zzelle. Your feelings are hurt and you feel unappreciated. And you have a right to your feelings. I'd feel the same way. Someone is being a jerk and it isn't you.
  6. Littlesister, if it's your birthday then... HAPPY BIRTHDAY! If not then have a great day anyway!
  7. Dang it. It posted too soon again. Anyway, I rarely use alcohol any more. I think the last time was to soak a pair of pierced earrings years ago. I got some small bottles of peroxide and of alcohol. I got 4 of each and that's all I'm going to keep. Same with bleach. I got 4 of those little bottles at the Dollar Tree and that's all I'm going to store away. BTW, none of the alcohol or peroxide bottles were open. So they were bulging before the 2022 expiration date.
  8. I didn't realize alcohol was so dangerous to get rid of! My first thought was to thow it on a cold fire pit and use it as a fire starter a few weeks later. I guess not. I'm going to be very careful what goes down the drains because of the septic system. I'm even thinking about getting rid of all of my stash of Dial antibacterial bath soap. Cheaper to rebuy soap than to repair a septic tank. Hope I don't have issues with the toilet bowl cleaner I've been using. I checked my Dawn dish wash liquid to make sure it isn't the kind with bleach in it. Got lucky there. I have a lot to learn about country livin'
  9. Sea salt reminds me too much of fish and other water pollutants. I have fish issues. Even more...fish poop issues. I worry about the younger generation getting enough iodine from their 'designer' salt. I've seen older people in the 1950's with a goiter. Not pretty. I have really high blood pressure and low thyroid issues so I have to watch my sodium/iodine intake. I've used Salt Sense for decades. It's 33% lower sodium and to me, tastes like regular table salt and it's iodized. Lately I've had a hard time finding it but I think the problem is they changed the label and I have been over looking it. I've switched over to Morton's Lite and it's iodized and 50% less sodium. I can't taste the difference but I'm not a foodie either. Healthy salt isn't only about the trace minerals. It's about where it's sourced, sodium and iodine content. And like everything else, follow the advertizing dollars. IMHO. I'm even starting to be concerned over canning salt. It's main draw is that it is free from any additives that can cause clouding in the jars. Is clouding really a issue especially in darker foods like beans and soups and stews? Is the trade off worth it when you eat a lot of your own canned food? Am I over thinking this? Probably. Having said all of that, one regular size box of salt will last me about 2 years easy. So I might not be the best judge of salt.
  10. Meijers in Indiana had a skid full of Ball pint jars. But no lids. Wal-Mart had two cases of the little quarter pint size jars and that was it. No lids.
  11. I haven't gotten any notices in either IN. or OH. over utility rates rising. Knowing them they will probably raise them up and not say anything. People will probably assume their electric has gone up because it's been hot and they've been running their air more.
  12. I checked the peroxide bottle this week. It's still very swollen but it doesn't expire until 2022. I forgot to pour it over my toothbrush to see if it still fizzes. I still have it and will try to remember the next time I'm over there.
  13. Littlesister, it was in England where they used blackout curtains. It was a law that they had to use them or be fined. There were 'air raid wardens' who walked the streets at night looking for cracks of light from windows. They wanted towns to be completely dark so German bombers would think it was an empty field and unoccupied.
  14. I was loading up the Jeep in Indiana getting ready to come home when my son called. My DIL's mother had just died. DIL and her aunt found her dead. We are assuming it was a heart attack. We are all devasted. She was such a sweet lady and I really liked her a lot. Son and DIL are lost right now. It will get worse before it gets better. Their world was turned upside down just that fast. She saw them nearly every day. My heart is breaking for them all but especially for my grandson. He doesn't understand the concept of not seeing her again yet. They were really close too. To make matters worse D-ex just arrived at their house this evening from out west. Not a good time for company. Son told me to come on home as there isn't anything I can do yet and I have to get my bills up to date over here. It would no doubt be awkward there right now. I will probably go back in a couple of days. What ever they decide will be fine with me. Prayers will be greatly appreciated for the family especially for the little one that I love so much. Thank You!
  15. Hee-Hee. I know Midnightmom but I still need some back ups and didn't want to scare anyone away yet.

  16. It is wonderful to have a mental health day once in a while. Good for you for taking care of yourself. Better than letting everything build up and then blow. Wish I had thought of that decades ago. When I'm away for awhile I always try to remember to take a fresh look, and smell, as I reenter the house. Not always a pleasant surprise. Speaking of reentry...I'm headed back to Indy tomorrow for about five days. I will finish the kitchen and try to line up a painter. Barring rain, I want to do weed control. They were starting to grow up around the landscaping and especially around the front door again. They can be very expensive to have someone else have to come in and take care of them. BTDT. Gonna nip those dudes in the bud. As Barney Fife used to say, "Nip it. Nip it. Nip it." I can't remember which episode. I'm going to look that up. Will be good for a few smiles. After tomorrow I'll be missing for a few days. Evil to say but I kind of hope son's will be off camping this weekend so I can get some more uninterrupted cleaning time in again. If he is not on call, they will be camping. I will still see them next Mon. and Tues. or whenever.
  17. Midnightmom, I thought the same thing! Guess we are racists after all.
  18. What a terrible situation. It looks like the people are doing a pretty good job with the rock throwing though. Might be a good idea for us to have some handy too. Better than nothing if the ammo runs out. It looks pretty effective. Especially when thrown in numbers. You see a lot of that kind of fighting in the Middle East.
  19. Looks like salmonella has it in for the avian population too. A Look At The Global Incident Map - YouTube Here is the map she is using. It's free to hover over but it costs $100.00 a year to read the articles she pulled up. Not in my budget. Global Incident Map Displaying Outbreaks Of All Varieties Of Diseases For some reason I'm able to read the articles on the website now. Good. If you go the the link below you can click on different types of maps. I just can't figure out how to get back to the main options map after I click on the disease map.

  20. Glad to hear from you We2. You guys are really buzzing along. I know you both have worked so hard, but working together. You are so lucky to have each other. I know Mr. We has saved you a fortune with his knowlege. Congrats on number 12. I use Old English too. It does a really good job covering up scratches and dings. I understand about not wanting help packing up. Son offered but I still have to go through the stuff to see what can be pitched and what I need. Plus the whinning about, "Why do you want that old thing. When was the last time you used it. Get rid of it". I'd rather do it myself even if I am slow. Lifting heavy boxes is a different story though. Take it easy and don't over heat or push your body too hard. It's too hard to bounce back now, huh? Hugs and belly rubs to my favorite red head!
  21. Oh Dear Lord. BTW the videos don't automatically load but if you double click on the icon they play just fine. How frightening is that! That police van pulling out and backing away. That's what you get when you disable the police. Sigh. Cuba is a mess too. I look for us to swoop in there and bring a lot of them over here. Not for humanitarian reasons but to spite the communist regime. Or maybe to show us how it's done right.
  22. The Evanovich novels sound fun. I looked them up at my library and they have quite a few of them on CD. I'm going to see if I can get some for my next trip to Indy. I have a CD player over there I can play them on too.
