  1. When we had a new roof installed several years ago, most of the workers were wearing ankle monitors. This was from an old local company. One of the younger, clean cut kid without a monitor asked to use the phone. I noticed him looking around but put it out of my mind. Guess what, two weeks later the house was broken into and robbed while we were at work. Found out later they used the clean cut guy to ask to use the phone and I fell for it. They also had spotters out to let them know when we left work. We were less than 10 minutes from home. The creeps even took food out of the freezer.
  2. And if they're that shoddy out in the open, what in the hell went on out of sight? The Amish tore down an entire house of ours and left less of a mess.
  3. I think lucky bamboo is related to the dracena family. They both call for 2.2.2. strength fertilizer. We have at least 10 lucky bamboo plants, they are slow growers I did buy a couple of the ones that had been trained to curl around a center post but the new growth wasn't willing to play along. The two oldest plants, probably five years, are about three feet high and have never been pruned or trimmed. I love the tropical look they add to the house in winter. And you never know when a Panda will come along and mistake one of the plants for the real thing!
  4. The double yolkers we get have smaller than usual yolks so, all in all there isn't much gain in volume. As a kid I was convinced that a double yolked egg would hatch into co-joined chickens. Never did see any though.
  5. She was the first one who showed just how incredibility generous people here are. The above posts are proof of that. I'll miss her bird posts most of all I think. Reading her posts was almost like sitting at her kitchen table wasn't it?
  6. Something to do with making kraut? I have no clue.
  7. I was with my husband while he had several burn debridement treatments. Not something either of us wants to do again. Very glad you are about back to normal. Yes, wear shoes!
  8. Yes, near me is the amazing Seed Savers Project in Decorah, Iowa. Wal-Mart still carries what I think are the real ones. At this point in time I really have no interest in growing my own though. All those who do keep unique strains going should have a special spot at the table in Heaven!
  9. On the same track. I notice, here at least, that poblanos are looking more and more like Anaheims... I always used to think of poblanos as heart shaped but no more. This newer version is harder to stuff. Are we going to end up with a single chili in the future?
  10. Poor misguided worms....they made a right turn and ended up in the plum jam when they meant to land in the tequila bottle.
  11. But there has never been a cleaner worm on the face of the earth!
  12. LOL, I never washed a green until well into retirement!
  13. I'm with you, it all goes for a merry-go-round ride in the salad spinner! Don't want to end up with something that isn't the brass ring!
  14. If you have ever watched the film, The Homesman, you know what constant wind can do to a person....
