Good DayYesterday (2/6/2017 9:44:17 AM):  My 4 month old great-great-niece was dedicated at her church yesterday in Texas. My dd's' granddaughter and I went down for the service. My great-niece and nephew asked if I would say the prayer for their family during the dedication. I was so honored. My dh probably would have had the honor if he had felt like going. There were several families who dedicated their children at the same time. It was good to be in church with many of my family members. Afterwards, we went to my brother's house for lunch and to celebrate his and my sil's 49th wedding anniversary. It was a fantastic day...then the Patriots won!!!!,  Janice/Ok

7868 More eagles (2/6/2017 10:23:49 AM):  For several years, I have been following the Decorah IA eagles through the Raptor Resource Project. You can find them on facebook. We also have a breeding pair near me at Shiloh National Military Park. Hiram & Julia (the eagles) have already laid their annual two eggs. They can also be followed on facebook under Shiloh Eagles. Their nest cam has been inoperable for several years. They thought it was fixed this year, but not sure if it is up and running. You can also learn about Hiram & Julia on the Shiloh Park website.
Eagles seem to have a high mortality rate. A few years ago, our juveniles were named Shi & Lo. They were just beginning to fledge. One of them was found at the foot of the nest tree. They never did announce what happened, although they were going to do a necropsy. Eagles are beautiful and awesome to watch, even if you don't get to see them "in person".,  Paula T. TN

7870 Patches, Kitty (2/6/2017 10:27:51 AM):  Linda, FL bumping up. I hope you guys will take these inspirational words to heart concerning beloved Patches! There was a special creature who entered all your hearts. She was more like family. But that was just for starts. The day she came into your lives was the happiest day of all. And through the years she was with you, I know she stood proud & tall! Then came the day that she got sick. You took her to your Vet. That Doc' ran tests that showed a mass, the news shook you emotionally & yet. You guys took her home while debating what to do. She got another day of TLC from you! You made the decision to have her put down. That's not easy to do. But in the end you gave to her a priceless kindness through & through! Patches may be gone from your precious sight. But she'll remain in your hearts every day, every night! ,  Virginia Ann S VA

7873 Key Chains (2/6/2017 11:03:29 AM):  Does anyone on the RMC site collect key chains. I have a few....mostly I have picked up at festivals etc......some just odd ball key chains. does anyone here collect key chains ??? ,  Patti/IN

7878 I just don't understand (2/6/2017 12:58:54 PM):  Not asking for advise or opinions, just venting. Some of you have heard the whole sorted saga of my step-daughter. Well this saga is the other step-daughter, the oldest one. Her mom basically kept her a secret and we finally connected with her about 6 years ago, she is 35 now. Well from the beginning I accepted her and her family no problems. We have helped her out with things over these past 6 years, money, gifts etc. I have been real good to the kids, they have always had birthday, Christmas gift etc. They even call me grandma. Most of you know I took my husband on a trip to Vegas in Sept on 2015. Well I also invited the two girls, this one said yes she would go. I paid for the ENTIRE vacation including several shows and ALL meals. A few months will go by and I won't get any answers to emails or texts. We went to visit for Thanksgiving 2015 and I cooked the entire meal, she is not a cook at all! Well since that visit, I have only received two texts from her, two word answers. So every two or three weeks if she does not call my husband, he calls her just to see what is going on. She was very strange on the phone this last time, I came into the conversation at the very end about 30 seconds before they hung up. I usually leave the room or he does so they can talk without disturbing me. So she writes him an email asking that I not be in the room any more when they talk. She says, after 6 years mind you, she doesn't want to talk to me and that she needs to get to know her blood relations first. WHAT?? Sorry but I am married to your father and you have had 6 years to talk, text, email and visit with him. He has flown or driven out to see her 4 times without me and twice with me. I totally feel used and unappreciated at this point. I have never done anything to upset her that I know of. You would think after 5 days in Vegas all expenses paid she would treat me with a bit more respect. Well the gravy train does not stop in Illinois anymore that's for sure!! I am very hurt over this but I will get over it. Where are those puppy videos? ,  CB OH

7886 question re: food (2/6/2017 3:45:50 PM):  I have a large pack of Totino's Pizza Rolls. It is a large pack. I came home and put them in the refrigerator instead of the freezer. That was a week ago. They have not been opened. I live alone. I have no sense of smell. Are these still good. thank you.,  Benita

7898 How Would You Handle? (2/6/2017 7:47:04 PM):  As couponers and stockpilers we have shelving units in our basement with lots of goodies from mustard to deodorant. We are always willing to share and our three sons and their wives come and ask for whatever when they stop over for a visit. We are happy to share :) One problem, one son and his family live in our small town and they have started coming by when we are not home and "overly" helping themselves. Our neighbors, who are also our friends, have let us know on several occasions that this son and/or DIL have been there. The main problem is I know I have certain things, flour for instance, and I go down to get it and BOOM - GONE! Not a text, note, nothing! And we live 20 miles from the nearest store. DH and I are unsure how to handle this. I want to lock the door. He says no, put up a sign saying help yourself but leave a note of what your take. That is too passive-aggressive for me. ,  HELP!

7901 How Would You Handle? (2/7/2017 1:13:46 AM):  I understand our situation. I think I would lock it. If he mentions it, just tell him some things you needed have come up missing. Tell him you put things down there for YOU but in the process have given to others. Tell him you love to share, but somebody has gotten a LOT of things without so much as a thank you. Tell him if he needs something, then "by all means" tell you and you will help him get some things. He has been using you. I know he's your son, but they do that. Don't let him. Stop this now.,  Andrea (Iowa)

7902 Is this still good? (2/7/2017 1:18:07 AM):  I want to thank everyone of you who answered my question regarding my unfrozen pizza rolls. It was a large pack, and it cost me a lot. That's why I needed some advice. That's what I love about this site. One gets REAL advice, not just canned advice. I tend to believe people here with things such as this rather than other sites or even people. YOU ARE GREAT! THANKS SO MUCH,  Benita

7914 Baby Dedications (2/7/2017 8:55:02 AM):  This has been going on since Bible times in various children's lives as their parents offered to raise their children to love the Lord. I grew up in a Fundamental Baptist Church; have been in the So Baptist Church for 30 years. A lot of churches do this. We dedicated our daughters when they were babies. It is just saying that you will raise your child to know God. (Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he won't depart from it.). At our girls' dedications my dh husband sang "Because He Lives." We do not believe in pedo baptism as some other religions who sprinkle, etc. When children get old enough to accept the Lord as their personal saviour; then baptism (dunking :) happens). The dedication doesn't save them. Dedications are at the request of the parents and can happen at any age. Sunday there were families who had several small children dedicated. This church was much like a Baptist church but was called Gateway church. They have two services each morning. It is a satellite church with several all over Ft Worth. The sermons are pod cast, but the music is with a live band and is praise music. I loved the service. My granddaughter went into the class for her age without hesitation. The lady in charged opened the door and asked "would you like to come to a tea party?" They had music, lessons, and play time. It was a neat church.,  Janice/Ok

7915 Stampin Up old sets (2/7/2017 8:58:52 AM):  I have some older retired SU sets that I would like to part with, but no idea what they might be worth? Any SU demonstrators on here that might know? There are only six so I can post them if requested. Thanks in advance!,  Lori L MN

7946 Snow/Ice Day (2/8/2017 7:31:58 AM):  We had a lovely 3 inch coating of ice over some nice fluffy snow last night. We are now up to "snow day #4" this year. Right now it is 30 degrees and supposed to warm up quite a bit by noon. Fortunately, I took the ice scrapers out of my car last night. The car doors are frozen shut. They are working on the roads right now. Late tomorrow they are predicting another 3-5 inches of the white fluffy snow. I don't mind snow, ice just makes everything icky. Quite a difference from last year when we didn't use any "snow" days. Our snow days just get added on to the end of the year, so unless we go into July (a new fiscal year), there isn't any problem.,  Joanne Vt

7952 Dump Meals/ Rose (2/8/2017 9:51:28 AM):  4 oz thick cut bacon, 2cups chicken broth, 1/2 cup dry white wine, 3tbsp tomato paste, 8 cloves garlic peeled and mashed, 1 medium onion, 14.5 oz can petite tomatoes drain, 2lbs lean pork butt in 2 inch pieces, 4 sprigs thyme, 1/2 cup dried lentils, 15 oz can white beans rinsed. I put every thing in one bag except the pork. I also wait to put the dried beans and canned beans in as find they do not freeze well. I cut the meat up and freeze it in a separate bag as it calls for browning it first. Plus I mix a little flour when I brown it to help sauce thicken some. I brown pork then just dump bag of frozen liquids ,spices , cut up onion and dried beans in and add canned beans last few minutes of cooking. ,  Vicki, Va.

7954 Prepaid card (2/8/2017 10:10:28 AM):  I have a prepaid Visa debit card. It says I must register it first before using it online. I put in all the numbers & it asks for me to type in the capchta(?)only thing is that part never shows up. I tried calling the 800# but I get a recording telling me I can't access this nimber. Does anyone know how to get around this?,  cathy

7955 Tips for dump meals (2/8/2017 10:10:33 AM):  Rose I will try and post a meal or two each day or at least every other day for you. I just posted one for stewed pork and white beans. If you need any more info on it it is posted in woman's day recipes. Here are some tips I have learned and found useful for doing dump meals. Have plastic bags or containers for meals, a marker and a notebook. A lot of meals can be adapted for dump meals. You can do them in the crockpot, oven, pressure cooker, or stove top. I don't precook my meats. If recipe calls for meat to be browned I don't mix it in with other things. I freeze other stuff in bag & then wrap my meat in foil or other bag & place it on top. Some things don't freeze well like sour cream, pasta and few other things. Google has good lists of things that can be frozen and things that can't. I mark on each bag the recipe and where I got recipe. I also write just the name of recipe in notebook and put information like needs can of beans added, or add sour cream. Just those things that can't be frozen. Here a couple more tips for making meal prep easier. Things like onion, peppers and celery will last a good 4-5 days cut up and wrapped in paper towel and either put in a airtight container or ziplock type of bag. Very handy for those morning omelets or any thing that calls for these things. Salt, pepper, garlic can be combined and used to quickly spice foods. I do one pot cooking. I do my sauces in big wok and then put it in bowl and keep warm in microwave. My microwave has a keep warm feature. Boil pasta in wok and drain and pour sauce in. Just one pot to clean. Hope these help and I'll try to post more tomorrow. ,  Vicki, Va.

7961 Susan/SC (2/8/2017 12:35:01 PM):  Do you still go to the Methodist Church? When I was little my mom and dad didn't go to church for a while. Mother was Catholic as a child. I went to the Church of Christ with my neighbors. I can still remember singing Trust and Obey to no piano or organ music. My dh filled in for a Methodist preacher a couple of Sundays several years ago. We are close with all of our friends from other denominations in town. Our methods of worship are a little different, but we serve the same God.,  Janice/Ok

7966 Recalled Dog Food (2/8/2017 3:37:50 PM):  This is frightening! Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food has recently issued a recall on some of their products after traces of a potentially lethal drug were found in their food. Pentobarbital is a sedative normally used to euthanize horses, cats, and dogs. Evanger’s Hunk of Beef Dog Food is currently the only product suspected of contamination. The manufacturer is subsequently voluntarily recalling all Hunk of Beef items bearing lot numbers that start with 1816E03HB, 1816E04HB, 1816E06HB, 1816E07HB, and 1816E13HB, and have an expiration date of June 2020. The FDA reports that the second half of the bar-code should read, “20109,” and it can be located on the back of the product label. Evangers Company is based in Illinois. The products were sold online and in retail locations in other states including Washington, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. ,  Vicki J, AZ

7968 60 Salad Maker (2/8/2017 4:09:56 PM):  Has anyone seen this device or used it. You put your salad things or fruit in this thing. It has slots that you slice your knife through and then you turn it and slice again. Looks a little small but may be good for just hubby and I. ,  Vicki, Va.

7972 Survey (2/8/2017 5:44:51 PM):  In our local paper they said how someone will be calling people in the county and the call will take 15 min. They want to know what health issues you have and what the county can do to help you. Would you be comfortable discussing your health problems to someone you don't know? Now that this is in the news who knows for sure it is someone from the health dept. calling or someone trying to get information on you.,  Ann

7980 Super Bowl Pool winners (2/9/2017 12:45:18 AM):  I got the listing today. There was no winner for the tie breaker, which was semi-played as a new game. Anyway, was disappointed in that b/c I might have won. LOL Noticed that one of the persons who won last year also won this year. That was not mentioned in her information...not that it really matters, but it would have been nice for that information to have been included. Also, every year, MANY people do NOT follow through in sending things. There was ONE stipulation. That if you entered that you send SOMETHING. ANYTHING. IN the past winners have gotten so many things, to a few things from a person, to a lot of things. You can just send coupons, or you can mix it up... You could pay 49c to send your things, or much, much more. So please, it's up to you. Send SOMETHING! And, winners: do YOUR part! Send something to the other three winners. That is only fair. Further, PLEASE PLEASE post updates...several. We all love to hear about what you are receiving, giving the count of envelopes each time. REALLY.. you should post an update at least twice a week, as I know you will receive envelopes on a daily basis for quite a while. Then they will slow. Some will come weeks later..(although PLEASE don't wait... but some will do that for whatever reason). Just my thoughts.....,  Jeanette

7985 Frozen Pizza (2/9/2017 5:52:08 AM):  What is your favorite frozen pizza? We buy Red Baron alot. Recently Meijer had buy one get one for 50% off which averaged out to $2.85 per pizza.

7995 Another Snow Day (2/9/2017 8:02:10 AM):  We have another snow day today. They called it a bit later than usual at 5:45am. Hopefully some of our commuters hadn't already left yet. Fortunately, it seems to be the light and fluffy stuff. However, this is on top of the ice that refroze over night -- so it is quite slippery out there. Our in town roads are ok except for our big hills and our rural outlying roads are a mess. We have about 4 inches right now and it is supposed to snow through the evening. Hopefully, we have school tomorrow.,  JOanne Vt

8026 Legal question. (2/9/2017 4:37:48 PM):  What can one do about this? And isn't what he did wrong. A husband has really bad credit, so talks his young wife to put an expensive 4-wheeler Razor in her name, as she has great credit. They are separated now and she found out that he has sold the thing and don't even know where it is as it's been sold again in another state. He has stopped making payments and she is having a hard time making them . She doesn't want her credit to get bad. What can she do? Is there something to file. Isn't what he did illegal? ,  A mess

8028 Auction site (2/9/2017 4:44:40 PM):  I posted a while ago that I found an auction site for local pick up only. It's a little addicting, but they have such a wide range of things! My school's athletic program has made out well - I've saved them SO much money with the things I've found! I bought a drink cooler (holds 96 cans/bottles), a mini freezer, 2 bar stools, portable ropes (think movie theaters - they guide people where to go), and a few miscellaneous items all for less than $200! I think I'll be slowing down now, but there is plenty of things I can use personally on there too....,  Lisa, OH

8038 crazy weather (2/9/2017 9:46:55 PM):  The west coast is getting hammered again. At least Northern California and Northern Nevada (Reno, etc) has flood watches, flooded highways, etc. We had an peak wind gust of 85 mph this afternoon. About that time we lost part of our older, but solid privacy fence. One section must have gone up in the air, hit a flexible tree and is now laying on the lawn on top of the flattened tree. I am so glad the fence section didn't go flying farther and hit the house. I read of at least one person who had sheet metal go through her window and someone in our neighborhood has sheet metal all over her yard and luckily it didn't hit her horses. The wind finally died down and it has been raining hard ever since. There are 30 year old pine trees coming down in the parks and yards. If you pray, please pray that the storms stop soon. ,  Heather, NV

8074 Oroville (CA) dam spillway (2/10/2017 5:22:37 PM):  Oroville (CA) Lake dam is the highest in the nation. Well, giant chunks of the concrete spillway washed away earlier this week. Now the hole is about 200 feet in diameter. There is so much water coming into Oroville Lake that they can't stop releasing water. This lake is above Oroville, CA and near Paradise, CA, which is were my mom lived. We had see what the drought had done to Oroville Lake so we are happy to see it filling up, but this rate is insane.,  Heather, NV

8076 Taxes (2/10/2017 6:06:33 PM):  Does anyone know if there is an age where you no longer have to file taxes? My dad went to file his taxes yesterday and they told him he didn't need to file next year. He is 82.,  Cathy B. Mo.

My mental line is down by Los Angeles :-) But, I heard that the Tehachapi, CA area was also supposed to get heavy rain last night. Sis-in-law's description was this storm was 'massive' when I texted her about our wind and no power. ,  Heather, NV

8089 Super Bowl Pool game discussion (2/11/2017 12:23:15 AM):  I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that she won twice. I think what the other lady was trying to say was it would have been nice to have known that. For instance, I send homemade goodies. One item I wouldn't want to re-send another one. I would make another kind. But I haven't done my envelopes yet, so I will not send that to her if I can locate my listing from last year (doubtful) and see which one it was. I think I could probably narrow it down because one lady 's story in particular really touched my heart. I will be sending that one something extra special (because I choose to). As to the winners not posting what all they get and so on, that was not a rule to enter. But, it is common courtesy to do so. I remember last year only only two even bothered to post; the other two didn't. I am sure we all would have at least liked to read a thanks. I spent more than $4 postage on each one last year, not to mention contents. So I would have liked to have at least read that the other two were thankful. And, about the organizer, I guess I didn't read the notes properly, but I don't recall anyone saying anything bad about Margaret. I do recall several posting "who won" notes. Only the First Quarter winner was announced on here. Suggestions on next year... more communication on everyone's part! Someone said there were five quarters. NO, there wasn't. It was plainly and clearly stated that the tie breaker was played as a real game, with another First Quarter starting. Then who scored first, won. So, there should have been another winner. If someone will post the name of the winner of the tie-breaker, and if that person will give everyone her (or his) address, I will gladly send something to that person. That is only fair. And, I know others will do the same.,  Mandy in NJ

8090 Cleaning problems (2/11/2017 3:11:09 AM):  I am trying to get my mom's fridge ready to sell with her house. She died 5 months ago. The hard plastic handles have yellowed with age. Is there anything I could put on them to make them white again?,  Donna/GA

8092 Good Morning (2/11/2017 6:25:18 AM):  My computer died Wednesday morning - the keyboard was not talking to the computer - our regular computer "guy" got a full time job so we took it to a stranger in a new business - got it back last night - so far so good but this keyboard sure feels weird ,  Joanie in FL Keys

8095 Masterchef Jr help (2/11/2017 6:50:19 AM):  I did not record the first episode last Thursday (?) because there were 2 shows I was already recording with the DVR. I cannot find it On Demand....anywhere.....whether I go by network or by title.....I do not have any streaming TV of any sort.....any place I can watch it on the computer? It was on FOX,  Joanie in FL Keys

8099 Raising Chickens (2/11/2017 7:27:28 AM):  I'm interested in raising just a few chickens for eggs. I have a farm. I haven't been around chickens since I was little, a long time ago. It will be later this spring, so I have time to get ready. I would get hens that are ready to lay. If anyone has any hints let me know. I'll have to decide soon. Tell me the good and bad so I will know. Thanks. ,  Pam, KY

8105 Resume (2/11/2017 9:19:22 AM):  It's been over 10 years since I have had to write a resume. But some things are happening so I need to put one together pretty quickly. Is there a good website out there that shows/models a website for this??? thanks!,  susan, SC

8106 Interesting question (2/11/2017 9:48:59 AM):  When you're at work or at home, how do you do your projects? Do you do them in stages, like work on something a little bit and then move onto something else. Or, do you complete one project at a time? I do everything in stages because some of my projects I don't really enjoy doing (i.e. income tax) or I get bored doing them so I change it up a bit. ,  Mindy W, MD

8125 Legal advice followup (2/11/2017 1:25:22 PM):  Yesterday was a posting where wife took out loan for a 4-wheeler for husband with bad credit. He sold it and now they are both gone. Just out of curiosity, could she claim it was stolen? ,  wondering

8126 Pam KY (2/11/2017 1:32:16 PM):  Pam, don't be surprised if you get a very unconcerned attitude from CBS. About 20 years ago, my husband was watching a local station in the afternoon. The movie they were showing should have been classified as porn! As soon as he realized this, he turned it off and called to complain. The person at the station very rudely told him that if he didn't like what was on, he should just change the channel! And you know how much worse things have gotten in recent years. I personally applaud you for wanting to stand up for your beliefs. Good luck!,  Paula T. TN

8128 Re: 48125 (2/11/2017 2:13:11 PM):  That sounds like insurance fraud to me. Not worth chancing jail. What I don't get is those have a title how could not so DH sell it without paying off loan. You can't sell a car and transfer title without a payoff,  Enough problems without fraud

8144 the sun came out! (2/11/2017 5:48:52 PM):  I saw the moon last night and the sun for part of today. It has been a long time since we saw that. We got the four sections of solid privacy fence down and and we got a pile of items taken to the thrift store. It has been a good day.,  Heather, NV

8153 small cupboard by stove (2/12/2017 12:15:13 AM):  If you have a small lower cupboard by the stove/range what do you put in it? We have always stored the cookie sheets and cutting boards in there, but for years I have fought the cookie sheets. If the items aren't put in a certain way then you can't get the cookie sheets out - they have to be tipped sideways to fit through the opening. I am ready to move the cookie sheets somewhere else, but I don't know what to store in the cupboard. Any suggestions?,  Heather, NV

8157 GS Cookies (2/12/2017 6:18:45 AM):  I hope someone on here posts as I'm not sure I'm quite accurate. But about 15 years ago when my DD was a girl scout, they only got about 50 cents from each box of cookies. I thought that was a total rip off so quit buying them after she quit the organization.,  Susan, SC

8162 Just courious (2/12/2017 9:12:05 AM):  Yep just curious Its about price matching at Walmart. I still take in the actual page from the Sunday paper ...say a page from the Kroger my Walmart and they price match. some cashiers will look at it and look at it and other cashiers will just glance at it. But they still price match. We live on the south side of Indianapolis. My cousin in Florida they quit any price matching at Walmart long time ago. I keep waiting and praying it never happens. But how many locations still price match with the other store advertisements in Walmart. ,  Patti/IN

8169 More Snow (2/12/2017 11:09:25 AM):  Lots more snow coming in today and supposedly going well into Monday. Not sure if we will have school tomorrow. Besides getting the roads plowed and sanded well, the 6 different school parking lots take forever to get plowed out. If it's only the light fluffy stuff, we might be ok. Here's hoping the freezing rain stays away. That just makes icky ice. The irony of all of this is that we have school break next week which is President's week. I doubt that they will start having us make up days then; but our April break may be up for grabs if we get more than 2 more snow days. (They have a bunch of us signed up for taking some "mandatory math training" from June 26-30th.) Right now kids are going through June 21. If we have tomorrow off, it will be June 22 for kids and we still have the rest of February and March to go through with "snow." The most snow days that we have ever used that I can remember is 8. The least was last year at 0. However, our ski areas are happy this year and that will be a boost to our local economy along with the snowmobilers.,  Joanne Vt

8177 Endometrial Cancer (2/12/2017 1:54:30 PM):  Has anyone here have/had endometrial cancer? I have endometrial cancer - a very fast growing and aggressive type. I had a robotic assisted total laparscopic hysterectomy, both tubes and ovaries removed and all lymph nodes removed. I will start 2 chemo IV drugs every Wednesday 3 weeks apart for 3 times. Then I will have radiation for 5 days in a row and the cycle will start again. I would appreciate any hints for coping with the side effects of the chemo and radiation. Thanks for any prayers and good thoughts.,  Geri, IL

8188 Coupons (2/12/2017 4:52:45 PM):  I was cutting my coupons from todays paper. I saw the ones for Cover Girl. But what had me looking twice was the picture of the person. It wasn't a girl it was a guy. In the fine print at the bottom of the page was his name.,  cathy oh

8192 odd habit (2/12/2017 5:15:22 PM):  I like to read obituaries. I know it's an odd habit. Most of them are kind of boring. But every once in a while there is a funny one or odd one. This one is funny in an odd and sad way. Hope my link works.,  Susan, SC

8204 Cable TV (2/12/2017 7:57:20 PM):  I have cable TV through spectrum (used to be time warner). We have to have a digital adapter and they are raising the cost of "renting" it. Is there anything in a store I can buy or is the adapter rented by the cable company the only one I can use?,  Ann

8216 Teri J WV (2/13/2017 9:04:38 AM):  Got you evie with BTs, thanks so very much Cole and Kenzie are very excited and hoping they win!!! Sorry sorry to hear you have been under the weather, I had one but 5!!! oh my, I shall be thinking of you. I got thank you notes to send to each of you, but sadly every time I try to write my hands shake, I think its nerves and worry and hope it goes away soon, just stress. So I hope all of you that have sent me these see my thanks here and know I do appreciate you doing this for my grands... ,  Sunshine (Linda IN)

8226 Snow Update (2/13/2017 10:12:49 AM):  We ended up with about 12-14 inches of snow yesterday -- on top of the 8 inches on Sat. I just finished shoveling our walkway. Hubby did the plowing and snowplowing on the rest of this house. Now he is off to the new house with a much longer driveway. We're still hoping to be in for good at the new place this summer. Now I get to try to figure out lesson plans for the rest of the week. We have Feb break next week and I want to be at a good ending point. Progress reports are due out on Friday again.,  Joanne Vt

8232 A Simple Mistake ? (2/13/2017 1:26:47 PM):  Normally I am a very kind and patient person I am so aggravated today for about 5 years I've done business with a local loan company I've always called in in my monthly payment by phone ( keep in mind 5 years) they inturn mail me a receipt Wonderful ! No problems for over 4 years Then About 8-9 months ago I noticed I was rarely getting a receipt the only change was a different employee was now taking payments and sending receipts I made my payment as usual this month and within 3 days I received a receipt WOW ! they are on the ball I thought till my husband pointed out the NAME on the envelope was WRONG !!!!! but had our correct address a PO BOX I already opened it and the receipt inside belonged to us our names , plus our account number, balance ect I called and Audry answered saying it was just "A SIMPLE MISTAKE" for her to put the WRONG name if she had the address RIGHT that meant she pulled OUR card I said a simple mistake is once or maybe twice but repeatedly for 9 months ???? apparently she didnt look at the name or she would not have put someone elses name on it She acted like it was nothing The mgr was out or I'd talked to him I asked her how she would feel if her account information was mailed to someone else she acted as tho it was nothing To make the situation even more complicated the name on the envelope was a X-sister inlaw (a hair dresser) who buddies up with office people to get private information on their clients Which makes me even more upset I am thankful I have only 4 more payments left of the account When my husband arrived home he asked if I called the mgr I told him the details and he said Tell them I am not married to "Judy" ! To me the whole situation is a privacy issue Any Suggestions appreciated,  Ann Nc

8234 gourmet lunch (2/13/2017 1:40:17 PM):  Today I had a proscutto and brie wrapped strawberry, Tyson honey chicken, beef enchilada and swirl toast. Drink was grape juice and dessert chocolate dipped strawberry. Gotta love Sam's! I had planned on buying a polish dog combo but they were out and the samples were great,  judyb la

8237 Wind Blown Church (2/13/2017 2:10:42 PM):  Look on KXII Sherman Texas and you can see what happened to our church on Sunday right before Sunday School. Sunday School begins at 10 a.m. I was driving towards the church about 9:50 when I notice metal flying thru the air. As I got closer, I noticed parts of the metal roof wrapped around our steeple and parts of the tangled roof all over the church yard. It started about 5 minutes before I drove up. A couple of people were already in the church; others were just arriving. It must have been a straightline wind. The meteorologist said the winds in that area were 45 mph. I think it had to have been more than that. Remember, it was about 8-10 years ago that our older church was burned by teen arsonists. The new bldg was already built and we were waiting for the fire marshal to approve our moving in. The whole metal roof was ripped off the new bldg; but the men of our church stabilized the steeple and covered the roof with tarps since it is going to rain this week. We are happy that no one was hurt and that we have insurance.,  Janice/Ok

8246 shower gift (2/13/2017 4:17:06 PM):  Hi: I bought the 12 oz stackable clear jars at Menards a couple of weeks ago and I want to fill them with non food "things" for my future granddaughter in law's shower. I have thought of paper clips, push pins, rubber bands, etc. Can any of you give me clever ideas to put in these jars - I have 10 stackable jars. TIA,  Judy IL

8249 Recipe holder (2/13/2017 4:48:48 PM):  Everyone here is so helpful so I thought I would ask since I cannot seem to find what I want.I would like to purchase a little recipe card holder for my granddaughter who enjoys cooking.I don"t want a 3 ring binder but something small that she can copy a recipe onto a card and file it in her little book. I want to order it with her name on it too. Any ideas where I might get this?? Thank You!!,  Cooking grandma

8257 Egg Casserole (2/13/2017 6:46:22 PM):  Tonight on an eggland egg commercial they showed a breakfast casserole in a skillet. It looked great. It had egg, chunky potatoes, green and red peppers. Probably mushrooms and it looked like sausage (not ground) maybe a link cut in pieces. I have googled trying to find the recipe, but have come up with nothing. Anyone have a recipe like this or know where I can find it.,  Penny in MO

8263 Zeus (2/13/2017 8:31:02 PM):  I was doing "watch" on Swagbucks & all the sudden this screen pops up saying Windows detected I have a virus called Zeus. Shouldn't try to do anything myself but call a certain number they have listed. Well I hate to call anyone about anything especially computers. Usually I get a guy from India & have a hard time understanding. I did task manager to take down my Google Chrome. I ran malwarebytes & the scan found nothing. So was that page a fake?,  do I have a virus or not?

8281 Pilling on Clothing (2/14/2017 12:02:48 PM):  I need to purchase a new clothing pilling remover.The one my mom bought me, has to be at least 30 years old ! Does anyone have a brand that they like ? Also, why does the clothing pill nowadays ? Years ago,this never happened. It does not matter, if I purchase at Macy's WalMart, etc. I've been turning all of my clothes inside out before washing for many years.,  Linda M Rhode Island

8302 Picking forever house (2/14/2017 8:21:25 PM):  How did you decide which house would be your forever home and where it was? We don't know where DD will live after she graduates, but we can't figure out where we would move to if we leave Northern Nevada someday. We don't want to go back to California, but I know that has most of what we would want - lower elevations, closer to the ocean, etc. So, we looked online and there is a house in an area we really like around here so we might go look at it. It is 1.7 times bigger than our current house, but has features we wish this one did - guest room, sun room, bigger garage, great views and quiet neighborhood versus sometimes hearing semi trucks on a the two lane highway. Church and major shopping would be five minutes away instead of 30+ minutes. If we added the guest room, increased the garage and added the sun room to our current house we would still have the two lane highway noise to deal with. I hate making decisions...,  Heather, NV

8303 I sold dish towels (2/14/2017 9:11:30 PM):  So, I got a $8.50 check from the local Senior Center store since I sold two items at $5.00 each and the store keeps 15%. I had to go in today to figure out what sold between the coffee patterned potholders or decorated dish towels. I was surprised that the potholders were still there. I guess I need to find more of the white dish towels and decorate them. The ones I turned in were left over from a present I made for a niece a few years ago.,  Heather, NV

8308 Award shows (2/15/2017 5:30:20 AM):  I don't watch any of these shows but I do see on TV or internet some clips from them. Do these people not realize how ridiculous they look? Some of the outfits are so goofy. I don't care to see or hear what any of them have to say & I don't want to see them on stage with the boobs hanging out, see through outfits, or slits in the dress up to the bootie. Now I saw the 2 guys on stage with no pants on. What happened to just being yourself? They must of forgot it on the road to fame. I should have been a seamstress for the Holly weirds. I could of use minimal materials & sold it for thousands of dollars.,  cathy oh

8327 Valentine's Day (2/15/2017 10:33:39 AM):  Our monthly Ladies Night Out fell on Valentines. I started to cancel because it was rainy and 42 degrees and I had been cold all day. I made my dh a homemade Valentine with the words "Until the Twelfth Of Never" on the front. (That's our favorite song.) I made him a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup and went to my meeting. We were bringing finger foods. It was funny. There were only 4 of us that showed up. Here is what we brought; 1 pizza, 1 pizza apple dessert, 20 wings; (all from Simple Simons Pizza) the other lady brought Mexican Chicken Soup and a Coconut Pie. It was funny that we each brought something different. Two of the ladies are recent widows; one this year and one three years ago; the other is the young lady that married this year; and me. We spent the evening remembering their husbands and old stories of their marriage and just things the widows felt like talking about. They talked about being lonely and felt like they didn't fit in anywhere anymore even though their children invited them to lunch/dinner, etc. I am glad we didn't cancel the meeting. They said they had fun just talking and laughing about things.,  Janice/Ok

8329 Post#48188 (2/15/2017 10:55:56 AM):  I had read this post about the male model for Covergirl makeup. I just now saw his picture in the Sunday insert. I could be wrong but this guy is not covering up scars. I know some men may need to do this, but this looks like a guy trying to look like a girl. This really bothers me and my husband that our grandchildren have to grow up thinking this is normal. Signing my name again. ,  Pam, KY

8330 moving & Mindy, MD (2/15/2017 11:27:10 AM):  Thanks everyone for your comments about a 'forever' home. Mindy - this isn't a sudden decision. We have talked about expanding, buying a new house or even having a house built for Years, but never did anything about it. Up until 6 years ago we worked 15 minutes from the current house. Now DH works about 30 minutes away, which is a long distance when you are in a semi-rural area. I looked at houses about 5 years ago, but none of them met DH's requirements - big room for his model train, three car garage and space for a workshop, four bedrooms, at least an acre, quiet neighborhood away from the proposed new highway, definitely not in flood plain, not at the shade of the Sierra Nevada Mountains since you get black ice and the sun goes down really early, etc, etc. We have always liked the houses in the potential neighborhood, but they are older than ours and there are no empty lots. Only one house has been for sale and sold in the potential neighborhood in the last 6 months and that was sold to a friend whose parents also live in the neighborhood. Most of our friends live closer to the potential house, but I would still come down this direction to go to Zumba, but it isn't that far (Zumba is half way between our current house and the potential house). Oh, and we have lived in our first and only house for over 25 years after 5 months in a townhouse. When we bought this house there was no landscaping or a fence. ,  Heather, NV

8338 Celebs/Charity/Shows (2/15/2017 1:58:30 PM):  I like to watch Inside Edition every evening. I tape it and fast fwd what I don't like....for instance anything Kardashian. There are a lot of good stories, condensed on this show and there is a cute video or good human or pet story at the end. Now about charities. On one of the Awards shows..maybe Gold Globe..when I was fast forwarding, I caught Tyler Perry being awarded a Humanitarian Award. He donates millions of dollars to many charities like to Haiti, and other places after the disasters. It was amazing how much this man gives and he is so modest about it. Although "Madea" doesn't always have the best language in his films; they always have a good meaning to them. I understand that he has a production lot that the Walking Dead uses to film, but he doesn't allow any Witchcraft type things to be filmed there. ,  Janice/Ok

8343 Forever home (2/15/2017 4:18:21 PM):  Joanie in FL Keys, "people plan and God changes it" is so true. I planned to move back to where I grew up (1-1/2 hours away) eventually, since it's just me now. My family is there so would be easier for them when I need something done. I figured as long as my part-time job was still on, I'd stay. There have been quite a few houses within 3 square block area of my sister's house that have been for sale, so it's like someone is trying to tell me something. Looks like my plan changed with the flood. I guess God knows I drag my feet and decided to give me a kick. I still haven't made an official decision, although I know in my heart that I won't be moving back after almost 30 years in the same house and great neighborhood. Still need to decide whether to sell my house as-is or fix. Just have to adjust my mind. Moving from population 230,000 to 12,000 (and not even sure if that's accurate b/c don't think it takes into account all those who have moved since oilfield tanked). Not into big-city life as far as entertainment, etc. but still adjustment b/c places to eat out are very limited. Have to drive 40 miles. Only place to shop are WalMart, dollar stores and Stage. And things close early. I wanted to go to hamburger place to get a milkshake, but they close at 5 p.m. I don't go out much after dark, but 5:00 seems a tad early. I think they rely on a busy lunch business. Even on main roads, speed limit is 25 mph. And for the biggest thing. Housing is outrageously priced. A "regular" 3 bedroom, 2 bath brick home, average square footage of 1,800 sq. feet is just a tad under $250,000!! Not in a gated community or anything fancy. This just blows my mind. My sister's father-in-law told me that he knew if I decided to stay there, he was afraid I'd start hanging out at bars and picking up strange men, so I'd better move back where I belong.

8356 UPDATE (2/16/2017 8:43:31 AM):  Been a different week!!! Grandson went out for wrestling, he had a meet Monday night and came down wrong on his arm and broke it just above the wrist. They were so lucky that one of the team parents is a Dr. he set the bone back in place right there to stop further damage and off to hospital, he sees ortho Dr Fri morning for X-rays and hopefully no surgery and a PINK cast, he told us he wants pink because real men wear pink... LOL he is in pain but doing good, pain pills and sleep are helping a lot. Dh went for last Chemo on Tues, had blood work done and has a few issues, low potassium which he had before but not as bad so taking a pill for that, low iron and he will take iron for that, the worst was low oxygen in his blood so we have to be on top of that, they want him drinking tons of water. But now we know why he is so very tired. We are waiting for the call for when he goes back for next scan and see his Dr for results, we are praying it is controlled and he goes to maintenance. He did talk to them about another Biopsy to see if they could hopefully target this, but the problem with that is it could release cancer cells into his body and make matters worse... so we are back to wait and see, and storming heaven with prayers!!! ,  Sunshine (Linda IN)

8359 Sewing Friends (2/16/2017 9:13:58 AM):  I finally made a nice pair of pants that the legs don't flair out like a sail boat sail. They really look quite nice on me. I made them from following a pattern making thing on Professor Pincushion. I only have one problem. The waistband is a little big and gapes pretty bad in the back. I have seen some youtube videos that show where you can make a couple of slits in back and insert a piece of elastic shorter than the distance of the 2 slits. What is your opinion of that. How do you fix pants or skirts that fit you good everyplace else but the waistband is too big? Also I really prefer that my waistbands are elastic. I wear blouses that are out and go way below my waistband. Can I change a waistband from zipper and clasp to a waistband with elastic instead?,  Vicki, Va.

8365 Buying a condo (2/16/2017 10:51:26 AM):  My son is thinking about buying a Condo. The asking price is half and the listing says needs updates. I have contacted a realtor and she wrote back "the condo is a short sales and in the process of a foreclosure. the property could not be sold because the seller does not have enough money to pay off the loan that is against it. This house will not qualify for financing, so you would need cash to purchase." She also said the bank wants more than the listed price because the owner owes more than that price. How can the realtor say a bank won't let someone get a loan/mortgage on the property or be sure that is the case? The realtor also said no one is living there and the electricity has been off. My son says his contact said there is someone living there. I suggested he just email a few other realtors from different companies, ask the same questions and see if the answers are the same or different. I can't tell him I have done some research myself but I have hinted something is fishy with this place. He wants to see the property but his realtor wanted a pre-approved loan first before showing it. I told him not to sign anything and make sure to see the place first. Any other information, suggestions, etc? Thanks so much! ,  Ann

8381 Any Texas teachers? (2/16/2017 4:25:30 PM):  I have a few questions. I'm considering getting my certification to teach but not a teaching degree. I already have a bachelor degree, just not in education. What is the deal with teachers (public school) and Social Security benefits? My understanding is that I would not contribute to SS but to a teacher retirement program. Would I not receive SS for my previous non-public teacher income? Would being a teacher affect my husband's SS benefits? Anything I should know? I am currently a teacher aid at a private school. Not signing my name because I don't want my current employer to know I am looking at a different option. Thanks.,  Future teacher?

Is there anything I can buy to attach a pocket to inside of my top or pants ?

8411 Verizon unlimited (2/17/2017 3:20:57 PM):  What does this mean? The unlimited plan also allows customers to extend their phone's data connection to a laptop or other device for up to 10 GB of high-speed data; after 10 GB, the mobile hotspot connection gets slowed to 3G speeds. Does this mean I will no longer need my jet oak from Verizon when I get on my laptop? ,  Larie/ky

My antivirus software keeps telling me there is a trojan virus and will not allow me to access the printing feature of the program. I can select coupons but it doesn't print. I have done the thing where they send you a "one time" code 3 times now and before this issue I was able to print coupons just fine.

8425 carpet smells (2/18/2017 4:06:32 PM):  my sister in law had 2 half-housetrained pugs, who, of course, did their business all over the house. now, she is wanting to sell the house, since her husband passed away recently. she is not a fantastic housekeeper, so she had a professional house cleaning team come in, along with a carpet cleaner. the carpet still smells of dog, tho not to the degree it did before. my question of all of you: is there a "homemade" way to get the dog smell completely out, without having the carpet cleaners back in? she doesn't want to "bother" them, even tho we tell her she overpaid for a crappy job, as she is feeling "too mush-headed" to contact them. i offered to do it for her, but she "likes them & doesn't want to say they did a bad job." i understand she is grieving, & we are doing everything we can to ease the way for her, but are growing a little impatient with her. (i know, we should be ashamed, but she is a little (lot!) flaky at any time & this situation has not made her any less so; we are doing our best, but, while she demands we help, she doesn't do anything to help either us or herself) so, any suggestions would be wonderful, since i don't have dogs & my cat is nice & clean & i don't have pet odors & don't know what to do! ,  donna m

8427 Gear Quilt (2/18/2017 5:44:41 PM):  I am making DD a 'Gear' quilt. If you want to see the basic idea go to and search 'Man Sewing Gear Quilt'. I printed one template from him and found more gear cliparts. I then found a tutorial that explained how to print the 'gears' onto fusible web. I used one of our old printers and just printed out two of each gear. I want to get them cutout and see how they look on the quilt I am planning. Oh, and friends who also quilt agreed that making all the 1/2 square triangles was going to take forever so right now I just sewed the gradation 10x10 squares together. I need to see if laying the gears on top looks okay otherwise I am going to have to make some changes.,  Heather, NV

8430 Housekeeper (2/18/2017 8:08:36 PM):  I'm not a fan of gadgets, so when my DH showed me a Roomba that he bought at Target, I rolled my eyes. However, after I watched it closely, I realized this was a small answer to my prayers of cleaning a big house. It's interesting piece of machinery. He's thinking of buying one for the downstairs. ,  Mindy W, MD

If you have a way to look at YouTube while on treadmill, you can walk along with them too. On my first walk we went through some woods, down to a beach, then up to a lighthouse, all paced at a regular walking pace.

What papers do I need to take to have my taxes done. I sold it at a loss.Do I need to take the 2016 tax statement showing value of the property or all receipts that I have for the land we bought and when we had the cabin built? This was in 1998.

8460 Springtime In Febuary (2/19/2017 12:57:05 PM):  We are having such an awesome break from winter here in SE Va. Yesterday & today it has been in the 70's. People have been out doing yard work, walking, Cookouts. You name it they have been out. Even though water is too cold too swim there has been a lot just going to the beach to walk. We drop in the 50's though for Monday & Tuesday. After that though we have at least 3 days that we jump right back in the 70's. I am loving it!! I know that winter though is lurking and not finished slamming us quite yet though.,  Vicki, Va.

8488 Youth screen printed T-shirts? (2/20/2017 5:42:00 AM):  I am looking to order between 75-100 youth screen printed t-shirts. Does anyone have a recommendation? A lot of places seem to only have adult sizes, or they sell just the t-shirts and don't do the printing. I didn't think it would be so hard! These would be for our school athletics program - we are giving some away, but then will put some in our spirit wear area to sell, so I'm a little flexible on quantity if there is a price break.,  Lisa, OH

8492 Pet Carpet Smells (2/20/2017 7:46:29 AM):  One of our dogs has an incontinence problem. I have pet pads in several places in the living room/dining room. Both have been pooping on the pads but don't pee on them a lot. I have a spray called POTTY HERE that I spray on the pads and I think it has helped them poop there. I take them outside a lot when I am home; but when I am at school, my dh doesn't taken them out as often as I do. When my dd cleans my carpet she uses, Dawn, vinegar and Gain Laundry soap (It totals and cup full of liquid) then the rest is hot water. It does a fair job. This weekend I did it for the first time and I used RESOLVE CARPET CLEANER with a squirt of dawn and a little bit of vinegar and I think it did a better job and smelled cleaner. I put doggie pads under the dining room table, under the computer table, behind a recliner. No poop or pee over the weekend. Of course, we let them out a lot.,  Janice/Ok

8505 Thanks to everyone (2/20/2017 10:08:17 AM):  in the Phoenix area that gave suggestions where to shop. DH had/has a weird virus plus fever and coughing so never went to the family reunion. A chest x-ray ruled out pneumonia or pleurisy. Family members ranged in age from 14 to 86 years old so we made a good decision not to go. He is still in quarantine until this coming Sunday. I am still wearing a surgical mask and have scrubbed down areas we both touch with Lysol. I couldn't get him to wear a mask so I did. On the bright side I lost 4 pounds doing both of our daily tasks. We bought insurance on each airline ticket so am waiting for the refund from Delta. Life is unpredictable :o,  Carole H. KY

8511 Walk down Memory Lane (2/20/2017 1:01:18 PM):  As I was cleaning Sat. I listened to Sirius 50's and 60's oldies on Dish Network. I never realized how much music reminded me of people and times in my life. My mother and I sang "America the Beautiful" together as we washed dishes together when I was in 1st grade. I think in the 3rd or 4th grade "Green Door" was popular. In 4th or 5th my friend and I skated in her garage to "Tammy." 11th Grade "our song was" Since I Fell For You. 12th Grade My gym friend and I did an exercise routine with our index fingers to "WOOLY BULLY." (An assignment; cool gym teacher wasn't too impressed.) My high school boyfriend used to sing "Put Your Sweet Lips A little Closer to the Phone" when he called me from a phone booth at night. My friend and I wanted our boyfriends to take us to see the Righteous Bros. and they didn't want to go. So two other guys said they would take us; then they decided to just take us to a movie. Our boyfriends went to see the R/Bros. Grrr. My dh's and my song is "Until the Twelfth of Never." Our family song is a Bill Gaither song "Because He Lives." As I listed to the oldies tho, I could almost place each song with a person or place I had been. I never realized how much music had meant to my life. I had even thought about one of my piano teachers who could really tickle the ivories. He played Canadian Capers and made me play "Deep Purple." I used to hate that one, but love it now.,  Janice/Ok

8549 Walmart/Arkansas (2/21/2017 10:47:52 AM):  My great niece and her dh were in a Walmart near Texarkana and a man tried to grab her 6 month old baby from her arms. She moved away from him. He tried it again before they left the store. The second time her dh intervened when he grabbed at the baby. This time, my nephew pulled at knife on the man. They called security, but NOTHING was done. People said this has happened at this Walmart before. I haven't heard anymore on this story, but I hope they check Walmart cameras and pursue this further.,  Janice/Ok

8553 Jobs & Breaks (2/21/2017 12:27:08 PM):  In the perfect work situation a person works the job that they were basically hired for and is able to have their 3 breaks and leave on time. If there is a shortage in staff if you are lucky enough to have a manager with a lick of sense in them they will either rotate people fairly or will divide the work up evenly. There are some good managers but there are also a lot who are no where near good and often throw the bulk of the work on a select few. Often you are not working just because of short staff but you are working because those above you are not doing their job responsibly. Many times you are short staffed because those above you failed to make empty spots in schedule were filled. They continue to let deadbeats call in almost every other day without doing something about it. They let no call no show employees continue to do it over and over again without any repurcussions at all. They continually make mistakes on schedules even after being pointed out that is not correct. What's worse is the managers above them do absolutely nothing to correct the situation. When I worked as a nurse if you took your breaks due to shortage of staff and workload that was totally unreasonable you would have to work at least a couple more hours or more to get all your work done. There was no slacking and bathroom breaks consisted of you went before you punched in for the day and when you punched out for the day. It was constant on the job for the whole time you were there. Even if you didn't take breaks you still very rarely got out on time and rarely got to take a bathroom break. Also every time you punched out late you were disciplined for overtime, but if you tried to leave on time and all was not finished you were disciplined for that also. No win situation. So just because the law says you are to get 3 breaks it doesn't always work out that way. ,  Vicki, Va.

8562 Jobs (2/21/2017 2:14:04 PM):  My last job was working in a kitchen, food prep, making pizza, salads, doing catering etc. But I also emptied trash, cleaned the meat slicer, washed dishes, swept the floor, cleaned the walk in fridge, etc. It's part of a job and being a team player. Everyone did what it took to keep the kitchen running smoothly. My boss would say, "If you have time to lean, you have time to clean!" You got a 15 minute break for each 4 hour shift, and if you worked 6.5 hours you'd get an unpaid 30 minute lunch. Another job I had I was a manager at Lane Bryant clothing store. We had to be dressed up at all times, either dresses, skirts or nice work pants they sold, and dress shoes. But included in our job was sitting on the floor cleaning the grout between tiles with a toothbrush. Yes, you heard me right. We also had to take out trash and mop tiles, vacuum the rugs, etc. Just part of the job. Every job has perks and negatives. If you're unhappy doing what is needed, it's time for a new job. Bathroom breaks have been allowed anywhere I have worked though, as have smoking breaks, which always made me angry, since they could go out to smoke for 10 minutes every hour.,  Julie in Mass

8566 Walk Down Memory Lane (2/21/2017 1:06:37 PM):  My cousin's favorite song was Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino. Her and her husband would get up to dance to the song whenever it was payed at a party or dance. During her funeral mass the traditional hymns were sung. On the procession out of church with her body, a recording of Blueberry Hill was played. It made everyone smile because it was so appropriate. A few years later when her husband died her family did the same thing for him. Great memories are never forgotten. ,  Betty B, LA

They had a selection of items for free & pay only $3.99 shipping. I clicked on the wrinkle cream coupon but it took me to the link for "Clinique" but if I read it right I had a free trial membership.

8588 Dr Visit/Weight Loss (2/22/2017 11:20:34 AM):  I took my dh back to Dr for check up after cutting back some meds. He is doing better; but Dr. is going to do some heart follow ups like nuclear stress tests, etc to check out his heart. I ask the nurse if I could weigh while I was there because I felt like I had lost more weight since the last time I weighed in. I had lost 9 more lbs. Yea. Some of my diabetic meds help in weight loss. I am not dieting but have changed some eating habits for quite a while. When we get a burger or Arby sandwich, I don't order fries and most of the time I don't eat all of the bun. We don't eat heavy meals at night and don't snack a lot. We have been eating Halos or Cuties for a bedtime snack. I don't get a lot of exercise but I am able to walk more than I used to. Since I had my stomach surgery (to remove excessive skin) I have lost 101 lbs. My dr said I will always have a stomach (not hanging). I think it helps that I drink lots of water during the day.,  Janice/Ok

8593 leg pain (2/22/2017 2:00:21 PM):  Last night I had very bad pain in my legs. It seemed to mostly be contained in calf area on both legs. Horrible pain. Also a little pain in lower back. I had hurt my sacroiliac a couple years ago. It hurts a little now & then & only thing that seems to remain is I can't sleep on my right side. My hip won't allow me to lay on right side for more than 2 min before it is hurting so bad. The pain last night, and a few other nights lately is horrible. I laid on a heating pad on my lower back and chewed to full strength aspirin & finally fell asleep. A new job that requires being on my feet the whole 8 hrs & walking constantly seems to trigger it, but only after I am no longer walking, but home and trying to relax before bed. It doesn't occur every night that I work, but a lot of them. Can't afford a Dr, do have insurance, but I need to pay first $5,000 in bills and just back to work. I know aspirin isn't a good thing to do often but the pain was so bad & chewing gets it into blood stream pronto. Anyone else have something like this happen to them? If so, how are you treating it?,  new job in future?

8595 Yellow Lab (2/22/2017 3:02:42 PM):  We have a 5 month old Yellow Lab. The shedding is awful!

There is hair everywhere and I cant get a handle on it. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.,  Cathy B. Mo.

Azaleas will be next in my yard. I just hope we don' get another round of cold or all will be burnt. But lots of people are getting sick now with this warm weather. I'm lucky to be fine. (I rarely am sick anyway). But DH and DD have bad colds.,  susan, SC

8610 Skin tag under arm (2/22/2017 6:53:45 PM):  Last yr, my dermatologist said I could just clip the skin tag under my arm if it bothered me. Haven't been brave enough but it is irritated now with sleeveless tops. Has anyone just clipped theirs off? Did it bleed, etc? ,  Mal

8611 Wierd weather (2/22/2017 7:19:05 PM):  It's very early for spring, but we have all the trees budding out too. I just hope we don't have a late freeze to take out all the blueberries, pears, apples, and figs. I NEED my fruits to make jellies and jams and to freeze for pies in the winter. However, I'm enjoying the warm weather.,  Nancy, LA
