  • Oldiesmann: Heard from them this afternoon. The cost of repairs ended up being far more than they originally estimated and about $1200 more than what they say the car is worth (which is a little more than what I paid for it), so they're going to total it.

  • so_P_bubble: Fingers crossed! I hope the final cost for repair will be lower than previously estimated!

  • Oldiesmann: I believe he meant "borderline" in terms of cost of repairs vs how much they think the car is actually worth

  • so_P_bubble: Michael, that does not sound good, especially for your own security. Maybe you could sell as spare parts and find another bargain? A few months ago mine was stolen during the night and the security cams showed it fleeing toward the Palestinian territories - gone forever. I had just paid the yearly l

  • Oldiesmann: Bubble, the insurance company is having it taken to a local body shop to further inspect it. The appraiser did say it was "borderline" repairable though, despite otherwise being in good condition and having low miles (less than 76,000)

Going to head to bed, need to do this before my eyes slam shut and wake me up!!

Janie, if Shirley is late would you turn off the lights please. Remember, you are the one that had the nap. :)

Oh, how sad if Larry's hard work wasn't saved!  He really put a lot of effort into organizing that. I'm not much good about checking out recipes but now & then will try one from a trusted friend & love to share good tastes. I've tried a number of taco soups but one was outstanding & probably be the only one I ever make again. Since I didn't take recipes over to that other place, if anyone wants the one for taco soup, can condense it down for here.

Also, ToMe... my Kroger butcher was the one that suggested I try ham SHANKS instead of ham hocks (next to each other in MY Kroger). Shanks have almost no fat & still have the good flavor, more like using a ham bone. My father loved the fat on ham hocks... "best part"... he always said (lived to 95 & smoked all his life). I had a friend in MO that used your same "name" online.... never got around to asking where she picked that up, her name was Dorothy.

I boil my beans (pinto or Great Northern) in my spaghetti pot so can drain off that first water without the beans slipping out & down the drain, yes, it happened to me. Boil about 15 or 20 min & pour water off, fresh water & T of salt per pound of beans... and package of ham shanks. I used to add a couple cloves of garlic, fine chopped but bought a jar of garlic ready to use... some black pepper & they taste good to me. I cut off all the lean meat after cooked so it mingles with the beans & think of my MIL when I make corn bread to go with it. She always served it with fresh made cole slaw.

Jenn, got to tell you that my eyes filled with your news, I am so sorry they are all having to go through more. If I feel this heart ache I can just imagine how all of you are struggling to put a happy face on around Michele. Prayers continue for her health & strength to keep fighting.

Been a super busy day & I need to feed cats, clean the kitchen & get to bed. Just leave the lights on tonight, in my world they are all LED & will last for years!!!!

Amy, I clicked on your link and brought up a recipe first thing.  After that, I struck out.  The Christian Photographer one I showed was a place Larry posted and there are a lot of recipes there, also with the post of the person who suggested it.  As a "non-cook" I did not go there.
