  1. Ol' Momma - thank you for the recipe! I have a ton of zucchini here to keep processing. We're getting sick of zucchini bread, fried zucchini, sauteed zucchini and dehydrating zucchini. What they say around here is that you had better lock your car in the summer or you'll find it filled with zucchini! Violet -- Thank you for your help and patience with us all.

  4. Thank you ladies, for the great suggestions. May I ask what you eat zucchini relish with? I had never heard of it before. My zucchini plants are producing like crazy. I'm making bread and dehydrating chips right now.
  5. My coworker's grandfather just died at 86 years old. He had a Do Not Resuscitate order. His wife called the ambulance when she realized he wasn't breathing (she was in shock and forgot about the DNR order). After about 40 minutes of not breathing, the ambulance crew resuscitated him. He was taken to intensive care in the hospital and died two days later. The bill? Over $50,000, for treatment he didn't even want. When my grandfather was 85, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He refused treatment because he felt it was undignified and he was too old (my grandmother had died the
  6. What a great thread! Thank you ladies! I have to admit, I don't know how you all do it living in the South or Texas. I wouldn't make it for sure! I'd much rather have to deal with a blizzard than temps of 95 (much less 100!). I wilt at about 79 or 80 degrees.

    Steph - he's beautiful!!! Having a large dog brings me so much peace of mind. I hope he does for you as well.
  8. I don't buy it (or coke) anyway -- or any drink with high fructose corn syrup. The drinks sweetened with real sugar are so much better!
  9. Trish - I am in such awe of parents like you who are able to deal with these challenges. Stephanie -- Thank you so much for this information! We have family in St. Louis and Omaha. I hope this information means something to them.
  10. I'm sorry I wasn't more clear! This is a theory that has been put forth for a few decades, but more and more people are starting to lend credence to: basically, the earth has a limited supply of oil and we will run out. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_oil
  11. well, the biggest red flag for me is people in my area are starting to talk about prepping! Most of them cite the Peak Oil theory as their reason. A co-worker came back from a doctor's appointment where her well-trusted doctor of many years advised her to start buying food storage and prep items. Many families in my son's school (including his teacher) are talking about prepping and about being there for each other as a community in a TEOTWAWKI situation. We're pretty lucky here in upstate NY. The fan hasn't been hit with much yet. Our store shelves are still full and I don'
  12. Thank you Ladies! OMG BiscuitMaker -- I'd be terrified! I hope you are able to get rid of it somehow.
  13. How is everyone? I've been doing well, except for season allergies being awful this year in this neck of the woods. It turns out that a lot of people I know are becoming very concerned about Peak Oil and are trying to learn together all sorts of good skills. :-) Going to take a peek around and see how many people I recognize.
