  1. Here is the link I posted a long time ago: Hope it works. http://www.mrssurvival.com/topic/52368-xylitol-fatal-to-dogs/ This link was also in the thread: http://hounddogsdrule.com/k9-classroom/dangerous-foods-toxic-substances/
  2. I have an older Mr. Coffee ice tea maker. It makes about a half gallon of so. I've had it over 15 years I think. Sometimes I wonder if sugar isn't better than the artificial or refined stuff? Not in the diabetic world though. Sigh. I knew about the xylitol. I think I posted about it in the 'dog' thread or someplace.

    Thank you dogmom!
  4. Thanks for typing that out Ambergris. I think when I get moved I'm going to make up a couple of buckets. One for me to store beside the Jeep in case I have to go RIGHT NOW. And one for son. They won't 'get it' but that's okay. Annarchy, I understand about those videos. I get sucked in every time. I keep going from one prepper, gardening, homesteading and canning video to another. And the homeschooling ones even though I don't (or plan to) homeschool anyone. How do you know how much stevia to use, Miki? Just by trial and error? I'd like to try to replace my sugar in my sweet tea. At least some of it. I love my sweet tea and I like it sweet. Like McDonald's sweet. I use caffeine free tea bags so if I can get the sugar down maybe I won't feel so guilty drinking so much of the stuff. Oh my, that fire!
  5. Funny you should mention that Ambergris. I was stuck in the rabbit hole called Youtube tonight and I saw a docu-video about Swedish preppers. Their government encourages it and sent a booklet to every household on how to go about it. It's even taught in the schools. They are afraid of the Russians. At least they are realistic enough to know their government can't swoop in and save them.
  6. It rained most of the night and it's still pouring down now. I'm really getting concerned for the farmers AKA our food producers.
  7. Safe travels Annarchy. Are there many people living where the fire is or is it mostly desert? I'm sorry to read about your dad Mt. Rider. That has to be so hard for everyone concerned. One full day of no rain here today. I remember another very wet spring we had a few years ago. A big storm blew in with high winds and uprooted a lot of the trees that had their roots standing in water. Hope history doesn't repeat itself. The tornado Saturday in my hometown did more damage than they first let on. Lots of homes damaged and trees down.
  8. I don't think it rained today. I might have missed it though. It's going to take a month to dry out. Wish I could send some of it to Annarchy's area. Southern Indiana had some stormy weather this weekend. My hometown (Rushville) got a tornado touchdown on Saturday. Mostly trees and buildings were damaged. Thank God no injuries were reported. I guess a suburb of Indianapolis (Beech Grove) got it pretty bad though. Also some nasty weather around Bloomington. Tis the season.
  9. That is an awesome picture. You must be so proud of him! There is something special about a man in uniform.
  10. Stay safe Annarchy. Thanks for the update. That's a big one. RAIN! We have had nothing but rain. I can't believe how much we have gotten this spring. And it's still coming down. And more forecast to come this way. Poor farmers. Not to mention food prices. I went to Wal-Mart for some more ink. They finally got my kind in. It really set me back on getting my quilt patterns printed out. It never occurred to me to order online. Hopefully I'll get them done and put away this weekend. There's always a set-back it seems. I found a 4 in. binder that should hold them all at Office Max. WM was packed and I was second guessing myself going there on a Saturday evening. I only had a few things and the couple in front of me had a cart full. They let me go in front of them. Kinda restored my faith in humanity. Bing cherries are in season and I got a bag full. Once a year I splurge on them. Sometimes even twice a year.

    Lose weight

    Awesome job Zzelle!
  12. Oh, good idea. Be sure to let us know how it works. I remember planting carrot seeds one year. Those are tiny little devils. And my eyesight hasn't improved since then either.
  13. My grandson thinks those little bottles of Gatorade is 'pop'. If he's hot and sweaty from mowing my grass he asks for a pop. Mom gets him a bottle of Gatorade. He thinks he's chugging a Pepsi. I'm a sneaky gramdma. I made up the little individual packs so I could use them when out and about. Just the correct amount for a bottle of water. Fail. Speaking of salt, my blood pressure is so wonkie I really have to watch it. But that's another issue. Should we, as a society, be concerned with all of the popular 'designer' salts because of lack of iodine? The colored salts are pretty and fun to grind but do they provide iodine? One word...goiter.
  14. Crimony girl, I wish I had known about that sooner. It would have made my life easier.the pages would have looked better too. I'm almost finished now. Only a little less than 100 to go. Thank you for the hint for the next project I manufacture for myself.
  15. I crave potato chips when I get a migrain. They have to be plain old white Lays. I made up some packets of the homemade powdered solution with some Tang and some with Crystal Lite for emergencies. Then I put them in an airtight container. Every single one of them drew moisture from some place. I think I'll make up some more with some Gatorade and vacuum seal them in a jar. I like the blue Gatorade.
  16. Yeah, when you are in your 90's you've got more important things to do than fiddling around with TP rolls. Sheeesh. Many years ago I had a reason to go in our landlords house. I can't remember why now. Probably to pay the rent. Anyway, on their kitchen counter/bar they had a huge plexiglass bee hive set up. It had a plastic hose going to the outside of the house. It was the neatest thing I've ever seen. I still remember it some 30 years later. He and his son were both eagle scouts so I'm sure they did a lot of fascinating things. The dad was a carpenter and could fix anything.
  17. I know. That water gets so hot. It's dangerous.
  18. I got my quarterly taxes paid today. Yuck. Somehow I ended up at Wal-Mart. I decided this weekend was the one I am going to get all of my quilt patterns printed out and in a binder. I got a box of paper just one step up in weight from the regular paper. Got some sleeve protectors and some ink. I figured I have about 160 or so patterns. Boy, did I under estimate. I got home and started counting them. About 330 of them. Some are two pages and some are three pages. Sigh. At least I already have them all cleaned up and edited each in a Word document. I got most of them from one site. I've got about 15 done but I'm waiting for my 'no jam' paper to get unjammed and the printer to reset. I should have thought about this when we were having all of that rain and stuck inside. It's kind of a boring job that requires constant attention so I don't get the pages mixed up...again. I talked to another cousin yesterday. She was complaining about how big the rolls of toilet paper are these days and how you can only get the big jumbo packs. She's not a city slicker living in an apartment with limited room. She has lived on a farm her whole life. Still does. And is in her early 70's. How she got this far in life, in the country, without a hoard supply of TP is beyond me. She would go into prostrations if she looked in one of my closets. Or the basement. I kept my mouth shut and just said, "Um-huh, I know". But I was thinking thank goodness for Sam's Club mega 45 double roll packs of Northern TP. 2-Ply. Looks like tomorrow I'll need to go for more paper and ink. And a bigger notebook. A really big one.
  19. Aw, Annarchy I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how deafening that quiet can be. You've had your share of heartache with your fur kids the past year. My heart hurts for you my friend and for Gunny too.
  20. All's well here. I hate Kindle's autocorrect. If I misspell a word fine. But they change words that are correct for a word they think I want to use.
  21. Interesting article. I've never heard of them either. I love onions. Those perennials look like something I'd be interested in.
