  1. Before my Dad and them had proper refrigeration and freezing. They used to just let meat hang in the shed all winter (mostly deer), cutting off some as needed. I wanted that, but then I met people. Love is toxic and it'll destroy your dreams.
  2. I may be able to use a Yixing. I'd just need to choose times when tremor isn't bad.
  3. For gong fu brewing, is there some alternative to a gaiwan that would work for someone with tremors? I don't want to burn my fingerprints off. LOL Grandpa-style, maybe?
  4. Yeah, I have a six-stage reverse osmosis water filtration system...it's just like good spring water. One the subject of the kettle, I can just use my gooseneck pour-over kettle and a thermometer...I don't know what I was thinking!
  5. So far, I have some tea samples on the way from China.
  6. Do you think this is a good choice? Cuisinart CPK-17 PerfecTemp 1.7-Liter Cordless Electric Kettle
  7. They may or may not be part of the minnow family, which is huge. Carp are a member of the minnow family. But yeah, they "look" like an oily saltwater fish.
  8. This totally sucks! Most pantries in my area are church hosted so there's no rent, but there is occasionally an issue with finding enough help. My 82 year old aunt retired last month after running a local pantry for 20 years.
  9. In terms of SNAP, I've penciled things out...I'm fine. Things definitely aren't as good as they were a year ago and I do worry...inflation probably won't level-out anytime soon. I do still have a bit of surplus of SNAP funds at the end of the month. That is due to New York pumping funds into the program, but I don't know how long that will last. I refuse to feel guilty for indulging in fancier foods occasionally. I pride myself in working hard to make every penny go as far as possible on good food.
  10. Thanks for caring...I'm sure I'll survive. I may move this to the "How are you doing?" thread because there's related stuff going on.
