  1. I remember way back a few years ago the government was buying up all the foods from all of these places like Augatson Farms, and you couldn't buy anything in a no 10 can for a while. Wondering if this is happening again. I remember several places that said they couldn't sell to the public as the government had made orders that was wiping them out. Something to check on again. Right now I am trying to get free buckets from the farm market. They are the 5 gal. pickle buckets they get the pickles in. He is going to save me some. I am hoping to get at least 10 of them. I have 5 new buckets I boug
  2. I only have certain things I will have direct payments from checking account such as insurances. That is because I have had to many checks lost in the mail. I have a bill now that has been lost since Jan. 10th. Can't be traced, so now I send certain things by way of certified mail. That way there is a tracking number. It cost more and you need to make a trip to post office to do it. But well worth it. I am taking a break right now. working on redoing the kitchen and cleaning it up. I am wanting to buy a microwave stand for my Emeril Lagasse oven. I love that oven and got it free with m
  3. The spamming has gotten so out of hand and getting worse. People just don't care about others anymore. They only care about what they want and could care less as to how they get the money for their own greed. I will be watching a lot of her videos. I like them. Very much informative.
  4. Still praying for that family and for Heather to do really well with her rehab. I am sure she will rebound through all of this for the sake of her children. I had not heard of her videos, but will be watching for them now. Would love to see them.
  5. Daylilly, I am so sorry about the loss of your cousin. I some how missed your post. Praying for you and your family. These are hard times in deed. Seems 2021 is not going to be a great year either with so many people passing for one reason or another and our medical is going down the tubes more and more. Guess I am going through an anger stage and it is all over how Dh couldn't get the care he truly needed. It makes me so mad as I see more and more doctors getting out and others that I know of not getting the care they need if they are up in age. I should have found new doctors
  6. Also as they defund the police, drunk driving will get worse and there won't be any cops around to pull them off the road and arrest them. I fear we will being hearing even more about drunks hitting and injuring or killing others. Not to mention other crimes against humanity. Violence is very much on the rise all over the USA.
  7. Midnightmom, Being a free state isn't the issue. I am up in age and my family is moving away. Therefore making it harder for me to have the help I might need down the road with no family around here. My granddaughter that is getting married will in about a year and a half will be moving maybe to S. Carolina for medical school. My move is to be closer to family. My son in law said he is not going to do another corporate move. They are not spring chickens either and he is 53. So he said he will not be taken another promotion if he has to move to do it. And even if he did, I could put a tiny ho
  8. Just trying to keep my mind off of things today. The house feels so empty now. To quiet. So I went to the General Dollar store and bought some containers so I could get started in the office. Came home and had a bit of paperwork to get done and then started going through things in office. Got one box for things to trash and another for things I am not sure rather I want to keep or not. Things I want or need to keep I am putting into another box. Then going to get the 2 bookcases out I want to put in living room. That is where I am going to put my books so I can see what I have much easier. I
  9. Happy Birthday Momo. Hope it was a great one. .
  10. Miki, I have you and family in prayer. Today I got some more paperwork done. So hoping the light at end of tunnel is near. Gave the small bathroom a deep cleaning today. Now my back is hurting. But it is clean. Hoping to get the main bathroom deep cleaned tomorrow and start on the kitchen as well. I want to get the cabinets cleaned out and fridge cleaned out as well. Want to get the shelves in fridge and such washed down. Went to granddaughter's house for dinner this evening. Next Friday is my turn to cook dinner for them. Still can't bring myself to go through
  11. Miki, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. I understand about all the phone calls as I had to go through that with DH calling family and friends. Then the paperwork with his place of work, etc. that you will get through all of this. It's not an easy task, but you will get it all sorted out. for you and your family.
  12. Just can't watch that right now. But my prayers go out to her and her family. I know how hard that is going to be for them. Praying that she makes a full recovery. And praying for the the family over the loss of her husband. I know that will be very hard on her.
  13. Had some company today. First my financial planner and later my pastor came by. He is talking about getting the church open again and stop this staying in the car thing for Sunday service. I am starting to feel like I need to get back to church. It has been a year since I have been able to go. Watching the service on Facebook is not the same. Then my granddaughter from CA called and we talked a long while. So not a lot done in house today. I have been looking at what I want to pack up as far as knicknacks. I really need to go through and down size this house. Still cannot bring myself to
  14. I want to thank everyone for the prayers and caring thoughts and virtual hugs from all of you. This has been a very hard struggle for me. Though I knew Dh's time was was coming for Jesus to call him home. When I called 911 to get him to hospital on the 13th, his organs started failing as soon as he got to ER. He went into sudden total renal failure as his heart was to weak to pump. He pasted at 5 am on Sunday the 14th, the same day his mother passed in 1981. Both passed on Valentines day. 40 years apart. So I know he is celebrating valentines day with her. I still won't be on he
  15. Yes, I do take Berberine as well and I have been using Ceylon cinnamon for years. I knew that the VirMax was low in some vitamins and I take those vitamins in a multivitamin as well. My sugars have been well controlled and if I do take in to much sweets, I can take this VirMax and my sugars do stablelize and my levels will come back down. So for me it works for when I eat to much sweets. The Carb blocker has bought both my A1C and my Chol. down. So they are working for me. I do however double the VirMax because the vitamins in it are to low. My body does not produce enough insulin at times an
  16. I wanted to let you all know that DH pasted away early Sunday morning. He passing was quick and he was very much at peace. He knew the Lord and I know he is with him now singing and dancing with his parents and Brother. I will miss him dearly. But I also know that his suffering as he was that it was time to let him go.. I am tearing up as I type this, but I know it will take time. I will have my ups and downs and that is normal but knowing that DH was at peace gives me the peace I need to know he is no longer suffering. It has been a long year and a half. My daughter son in law and grandson
  17. Hello and welcome to the forum. 4 kiddos will keep you very busy. Lots of good people and lots to learn. Just ask and we will all try to answer any questions you have to help you on your way to building that stock.
  18. euphrasyne, it could just be the flu, but that in its self is bad enough. praying for you and the baby to start feeling much better soon. I do remember the days of teething. Not fun for you or the baby. Got a call today from home health. So now maybe I will get some much needed help. Dh had a very bad night last night. He just could not get his breath and was very hard on him. If he so much as moved he would loose his breath. So I was up most of the night. I thought maybe things would settle down this morning but it lasted most of the day. Off again on again. So I checked one of
  19. My Dh's cousin used to have a restaurant. He decided to close it to start up a farm market. He didn't buy any equipment to replace anything because the new owners got rid and sold a lot of stuff. Dh and I got to go in and take anything we wanted before it got sold. We got baking sheets, and a lot of other pans and stuff that we could use at that time. The cookie sheets I love because they are much bigger than the ones you buy in stores. You can also buy these at Sam's club. But there was no Sam's club back then. They fit wall to wall in my oven, but work great. I still use them to this day.
  20. Midnightmom, I also am a type 2 diabetic. I am under control and have been using a carb blocker for when I do eat carbs. I am also taken VirMax blood sugar stabilization formula. That is working well for me. I decided to try this when metformin was recalled first one drug company and then several companies. So I had enough of having to take medicine back to drug store for them to change it just to have that company recall it. This also happened with both mine and Dh's blood pressure meds. I do take a new prescription for blood pressure as I haven't found anything yet natural to replace it tha
  21. Wow, Annarchy You did good. That will one day be the norm. Though we will have to be very careful as to who we trade ammo to. You never know what the motive is. Though right now I don't think that will be a problem. Later when it hits the fan is when we will really need to be careful. Ammo is getting very hard to find and is very expensive now. And we have to be very careful ordering it on line as well now as we are being watched on what we do on line now.
  22. Dh has a pacemaker and defibrillator. He has had his since 2001. He got the watchman last year in June so he wouldn't have to take any type of blood thinners any longer. He cannot take that stuff as they cannot regulate him and his blood would get way to thin. They wanted him on warfarin after they did the implant and they had to rush a prescription for Vit. K to him to get his blood levels back down. They then took him off of it though after the implant he was to be on it for 6 weeks. So they put him on Plavix and will be coming off of that next month. Had to stay on that for 6 months. And
  23. Glad your day went well Miki. Wow Annarchy, you have been busy. I am still trying to get home health in for Dh. Though I talked with his doctor on Monday, it seems as soon as we got off the phone he forgot to call. Not only that but never called a neuro doctor either. Called back today and he called me back and acted like he knew nothing about it but said he would call to see what he could do and they would call tomorrow. If I don't hear from them tomorrow, we are going to be looking for a new family doctor. I am so over not being able to get the help he needs. My next step
  24. Dh had a better night last night. Thank you Lord. Only got up 3 times. Going to get him bathed in a little while. He is napping right now, so I will just let him sleep for a couple of hours. That will give me some me time. Cleaned kitchen and going to clean bathrooms right after I give DH his bath and get him settled again. I am a bit tired today, but need to keep going. Still haven't heard from home health. So going to call doctor this afternoon about it to see what is going on. My guess is they never called for home health. Doctors around here are getting worse and worse. I guess socializ
  25. Today, I got Dh cleaned up and fed him his breakfast. Then got some clothes put away that I had washed on Sat. Slow getting that job done with everything else going on. Our friend came over to give me the prescription for the wheel chair from Dh's doctor. Though we never heard from home health yet. Worked on taxes some more but still waiting for a couple of things to come in. Hope they will be here soon as I want to get that out of the way. Went to bank to cash a small check. That goes into the emergency fund. Paid some bills and DH bought me a new ring on line of course for Va
