    What's for dinner?

    plus very filling! :) sounds good to me. here today it was burger day so that was for me brunch. not sure what we'll do later, likely veggies and peanut butter. i've reached my quota of cookies for the day - but they are good for me, they only have butter, flour, powdered sugar and corn...

    What's for dinner?

    teletype was my first experience, that was dialed in to the mini-computer at a college campus, that was late '70s before floppies. of course we were playing a game called Star Trek. :)

    What's for dinner?

    in Mom's case her current attitude is from many years of working with a particular computer system from the time it was installed until she quit. since it was one of the earlier computer systems i'm sure it had a lot of problems and issues and did dumb things...

    WHAT ARE YOU CANNING TODAY?

    no, it was a regular cashier, Mom would not use a self-checkout lane. that's what i think Mom should do. whether or not she actually does it is another thing... :) a hate shopping period. last night some kid was screaming and i couldn't hear what the lady was saying to me.

    they ran both Shasta and Oroville right up to the tops last year. ORO actually was very close to going over the emergency spillway again but it didn't. there was debris from the water sitting right on top of the retaining wall the next day and for some time after.

    What's for dinner?

    i talked Mom into making lasagna like food for this weekend's visit by some friends. :) :) :) we'd been having baked spaghetti a lot of times recently and i voted for something different. she now uses elbows for making it, i don't care about what form of pasta she uses so whatever is easier...

    Coffee's Ready, Come and Sit on the Porch

    our first dog was a golden. a hunting dog my uncle had which he could never use so my Dad got him for us, but it turned out he really wanted to roam and would not stay penned up before finding a way out. so he was off on adventures a lot of the time and eventually we'd get a call to come pick...

    WHAT ARE YOU CANNING TODAY?

    the quick trip to town for Mom turned out to be not so quick, because the machine ate Mom's check so she got home, we unloaded what she did get and put the cold stuff away and then had to drive back to town to get the cart of food that was sitting there. they had to rescan it, plus she'd used...

    Food prices June 2021

    because the prices for labor and everything else except for the food have increased... if people stop buying expensive items then the price will have to go down or less will be produced. just the way of the world. for my own purposes when i shop i'm going for nutritional value and diversity...

    WHAT ARE YOU CANNING TODAY?

    i really prefer limes over lemons and their skins drying give off such a wondeful smell. :) once every few months i like to make grog, which is basically limes that i've peeled and then i grind them with the hand blender to get as much juice out of them as possible and then i add sugar to help...

    WHAT ARE YOU CANNING TODAY?

    our vacuum is stored out in the shed where Mom keeps all her extra quilting supplies and we stuff some gardening things in there in the fall. we might use the vacuum once a year or less (all wood floors which get dusted once in a while). the problem with using the closet as a pantry is that it...

    WHAT ARE YOU CANNING TODAY?

    basements are fairly common in this area but they have their issues (swampy area originally so don't put your footings too far below grade or you'll be perpetually pumping water - aka wasting energy for no good reason). we use the front closet as a pantry, it's not big enough, but we manage...

    same here, but we do have a Sam's Club membership that gets used once or twice a month. with all the baking Mom does it is worth it for us. it is about 30 miles from us but near the favorite Chinese food place we will visit if we go that ways so it works out ok to combine the trip and we also...
