    Mysterious lurkers on the SS forum

    I have been discovered...lurking. Got to admit when I first joined I felt like I was a thread killer too! My very first post ever, on this site, was met with unkindness, so I learned really quick to keep a low profile and, well...LURK. I have been amused, educated, and entertained!

    Who does once a month cooking?

    This sounds like an awesome idea, since there are at least 3 nights per week when after working all day, I just can't seem to get an acceptable dinner together. Why have I never thought of this before? I freeze some prepared food but not much beyond soup or stock. I really need help, thanks...

    What ya got left for Christmas?

    Oh my... the memories that came flooding back. When I was a kid (late 50's, early 60's) we had a cardboard fireplace. Last year I was able to make it home for Christmas (first time in 18 years), we sat around looking at old Christmas pictures and there were plenty that were in front of that...

    Chicken Feed

    I'm so glad to be learning that it's ok to NOT feed a commercial diet. Every bag of feed I have gotten since I started keeping chickens has had bugs in it. Now I do know that chickens like bugs, but I don't like them in my house! It's too hot most of the year to keep feed outside so we keep...

    SHTF - Information?

    Wow, never thought about it that way but "S" could be something as personal as an illness or the loss of a job. I was always thinking it was more of a wide spread type of "S". My eyes are becoming more open every day from reading this forum!
