June, you have often written how tired you are after ordering your groceries.  Today, I found out why.  Our grocery store has recently begun a program where we order by computer, then pick it up at a prescribed time at the store.  I got my baptism in ordering this morning and I did not finish looking at everything.  I had not signed in yet when Tom took over and got me established in the program.  But the quantities of foods they have!  I think I can do it by myself in the future; it's almost easier walking through the store where you don't have to look at every item in the store.  It will be easier from now on because what I have ordered previously will be available to copy.

We are at 17 degrees with no snow falling.

And a Super Saturday morning to all!!!   (Got that right, Callie?)  Bitter cold but sun is shining. Got to go get the cats a chicken at Sam's Club in less than half an hour.  I like to catch them coming out of the ovens. 

Larry, " Did you ever make a hot milk cake?  It was my grandfather's favorite and my grandmother made it often with homemade caramel frosting"...... never made or tasted that one, but would love to have the recipe.  I've never even made caramel frosting but do like the flavor.

Hal, sorry that cough is lingering.... my mother used to insist (even in mid winter) that as soon as fever was over & sun shining, we had to turn off the furnace & open windows to let fresh air in.  Actually, it never failed to get rid of the germs so we didn't catch everything all over again, (with 5 kids we could pass germs forever).  Just takes a short while to air out & we wrapped up during the process.  Sorry about that freezing rain we're sending on down.... nasty stuff.

Mary Ann, I've never tried to order online but do keep my Kroger (Dillon's here) store for coupons & weekly ads.... Most of the time I get fed up with all the products that have coupons & just look for what I plan to buy to see if there is a coupon attached.  I don't like having to go through all their brands every time I check the site, patience is not one of my virtues.  I do think they could organize the online lists better. 

Jenny, we stayed in Vail, Eagle-Vail, Avon & one other little area of Vail over the years.... all summer trips & the flowers were absolutely gorgeous.  I was glad they had the bus that ran up & down the main street so not as much walking in that high altitude.  I  did walk at times, to visit the many art shops.   Much as I enjoyed Veil & Aspen, my daydreams are of the woods & creeks of CO. Do hope Mark's area is safe from mudslides. That state has had one disaster after another. 

I don't understand why "the government" feels the need to pay for or replace when people that build or buy in dangerous should be paying their own insurance, not taxpayers.  First thing we did when buying a house near a river was check for flooding & found no flood insurance necessary.... we sit 12' higher than downtown Wichita & even if dams broke, the water would spread out & never get near our house.  Any time we had wind or hail damage it was the insurance WE paid for that helped us and KS has the higher rates to prove it.  Some companies even pulled out of KS because of so many claims during one period.  Here it is, tax time again so I am on my soap box~~   :tissue: :banghead: :bonk: :bash: :chatter: :crazy: :cussing: :calm: :calm:

Gloria, love the funnies.... so glad you have your computer back... seemed like forever that you were missing.  How is Regina doing?  My daughter is trying hard to not lift more than her doctor said... so that hernia repair doesn't break open again.  My daughter was born in Jan of '56..... how old is yours? 

Ooh oh.... need to get to Sam's NOW!  Have a great weekend... extended with the holiday Monday.  Shirley

Good morning everyone. I am late today. That wind and rain last night kept me awake. It was hitting my windows so hard I thought they would break. Finally got to sleep after 5am. At midnight it was 61°, another  record broken. 45° now and bu tomorrow morning will be in the teens. Just about all the snow is gone except for the big piles from the plow.

LLOYD  glad you liked what I posted yesterday. That was on JOAN posted a long time ago. I was checking out folders on my external drive. I had one of some of Joan's morning posts.

JANE  since the blizzard in 1978 when it was unexpected  even the mention of snow will send many to the store for the milk and bread and snacks.

MARY ANN  we missed the mix of snow/rain and that is OK.

AMY  that flash freeze is in our forecast, too. They said the roads would be icy but what I see from my window the road here looks dry. The wind dried things up pretty good when the rain stopped. The sun is shining and the sky a beautiful blue.

HAL  my grandson had bright red hair but it has darkened. When he decides to let his beard grow it is red and curly. Looks like one of the Irish Leprechauns and there is no Irish in the family. Years back he and some cousins took a tour of Europe and in Ireland people kept saying he must be a Boston Irish.

LARRY  the Fall River High school is 40 years old. They used to be in better shape years ago and were built to last. Nothing these days is made or built to last.  So many schools in the area had broken pipes and water damage.  I must have seen 6 orthopedic back doctors and only the first one talked surgery before he even looked at my back. Then he wanted to give me cortisone shots every 4 weeks.  None helped, and the last pain doctor hit a nerve at my spine and my left leg has bothered me since. I imagine Bubble would a like having some help.

CAROL  my daughter had a mesquite tree in their front yard in San Diego. My SIL  kept the bottom branches cleared so the could walk under it. Very pretty. They have some on their place in Arizona that have grown wild and look so different.

JUNE  I think many of us have dates with those men every day. Charley Horse does not come calling often and for that I am thankful.

AMY  glad the snow and wind has not showed up here. A little breezy but sky is still clear and temperature e is falling. Beautiful video, thanks you.

SHIRLEY  with 2 weeks of below 20° I hope all the darn bugs here were killed, especially the gypsy moth eggs and ticks.

HAL  yesterday I made a pot of chicken soup and it hit the spot with the cold and rain.

JENNY  I have a few more of JOAN”S posts that I can post, only have to remember to do it. Every time I read one I wish we would hear something about her. Seems like ages since you shared a Facebook post from Joe about her.

JANE  so many seems to have bad colds or some kind of bug this winter. So far so good in my family.

MARY ANN  I can order online for a grocery delivery and pick the day and time for it. I try to pick a time when a CNA will be here to help put it away.

SHIRLEY  right now I have my bedroom window open and the thermostat down. Love to get fresh air in every day unless it is too cold out. Of course the manager does not want any open windows at this time of year. She says it will freeze the heating elements under the windows. It is above freezing now so should be safe.  You would think that in Ca. They would be smart enough not to give out permits to build in dry river beds and on the edge of cliffs.

My daughter's birthday is 12-27-1953. She is doing good so far but now has to go for 5 weeks of radiation. She was hoping to avoid that but when she saw the doctor last week he said better to safe to make sure all the cancer is gone. I still do not have everything installed in this poor excuse of a computer.

Gloria, I'm glad the bad weather passed  you by.  We are cold today - 18 degrees, but the sun is shining and it is not snowing.  Our grocery pickup is new and we have to pick it up.  I'm going to have to go over that online ad to learn what is available.  I wish they'd have the same product with the various sizes all in a row.  As it is, I had to look on several pages to see the same product with the sizes one on a  page.  I'll get used to it.  I'm happy for the service and I know Tom is too because it is easier to drive to pick up an order than it is to do the shopping.  I must be getting old!!!

Well, this is the 2nd time I am writing in this post, must have hit something and a long post went puffffffff!?

Gloria, we started out warm this AM, but I think the temp. has fullen 30 degrees, by nightfall wlll be 18 and all down hill, late Monday and into Tuesday. 

There was a large bang a while ago, I think a transformer blew in the park, as I am getting messages that the power will be restored about 7:15PM.  I guess part of the park must be out of power. I am going to end this post and maybe do and other, as I have lost it 3 times.

Here I am again, starting a new post. If it goes this time, you might hear from me to morrow.

I wrote before to Larry and Shirley, agree with them about people going back year after year and building on fragile land.  Here the problem is people build on the dunes and close to the bays and some times right over the water. In the Hampton they build mansions on the dunes, and then when part of the building goes into the water, they expect the government to bring ii more tons of sand and large boulders to protect this SUMMER HOME. Of course you know who pays taxes for those homes.  When I was a kid, and we had a beach house next to the coast guard station.  the dunes were high, but if a Coast guard saw us playing on them he would tell us to stay off of them . When they were not looking my cousin and I and the other kid like to go to the top and roll down them  I guess it really was a dumb game, but at lest we were out side playing.

Hal, how nice, I bet you enjoyed that soup.

Amy be careful of that ice and snow.

Gee, I got through this with out losing the post.

Good Afternoon.

Sunny and brrrrr-cold in Central Oklahoma.  Shirley, I wish you'd shoo those Arctic Fronts back where they came from before they head this direction!

Project du Jour is to sort out the accordion-pleated folder I put the monthly receipts/statements/etc. in during the year.  Need to make room for January 2018 things and might as well buckle down and do all the rest of it at the same time.

Amazing how many things I can think of that "need" doing before I start that job!  (Can we say "procrastinate"?  ::) )

Jane's figuring out what to do with ingredients she has on hand reminded me that I could do the same thing.

 :no:, Callie!!!!!    :noway: Get busy on that folder!!!!!!   :whip:
Oh, alright!    :P

Callie, and anyone else who's interested, the Mish-mash leftover casserole turned out great!  It was definitely "more-ish" so I had some more.  There's a lot left so I'm glad it turned out well because I'll be eating it for a while.  Maybe I'll freeze a little of it and see how that works.

Wow, that news let the air out of me, Lloyd.  For sure she is in a better place but just as sure, I/we will miss her and think of her often.  It is a very sad day.  I hope someone can come up with her obituary in the paper so we can leave a message for her family, and so her local friends will know how much her cyber family loved her.  Shirley

Shirley, I looked for the obit but did not find it.  Perhaps it would be published on Sunday.  I am not sure about her information, but I think her last name was Lewis, not Corson as Ken's name is.  In one message, he mentioned "her daughter" which leads me to believe that Ken and the daughter had different fathers.  I also think she lived in or near Corinth NY.  If anyone has better information, let me know and I'll do more searching.

I have to look for the name of Ken's latest post so you can read it.

Shirley, the post is titled "Sad News for Friends of Jeanne Lee" and I'm not smart enough to find a link for it.  One of our more astute members will come up with the link.  I get a menu when I sign in and the above was in the menu, but it is not in the Forum list.

I'm saddened to read of JeanneLee's passing.  My condolences to her family.

Janie,  I didn't have a mish-mash but did use up a few things I found here and there.  Emptied a partial box of biscuit mix I'd had in the freezer since ???? (use by date still good, though) and a few other "partial" things in the fridge by making applesauce muffins and Hamburger RollUps.  Had a rollup with mushroom soup/chili sauce topping  for dinner and plan on muffins for breakfast in the morning.

 :-X on how far I got with the folder, though.     ;)

I had a bad day, due to my own fault. I canceled my albuterol yesterday since feeling so good. Woke this morning all worn out, so I am back on it again, and will order a treatment for tonight. I have been too tired today....will not be so foolish again. See you all tomorrow. June

I am very sad to read your new, LLOYD.  JEANNE LEE has been such a important part of our group and she will be greatly missed.  Seems just a week ago she posted saying she hope to be back soon!  My condolences to her family and friends. 

We bought a pressure cooker pot a few days ago and I finially got up enough courage to use it.  I made pinto beans with a nice ham bone and it turned out delicious.  Now I feel confident to use it again. 

JUNE, I am sorry to see you have had a set back.  I hope the treatment tonight will help you to feel much better tomorrow, sweet lady. 

JANE, sure happy your “Mish-mash“ turned out yummy. 

GLORIA, I will look forward to more of Joan’s past stories.  I am sorry I do not have any news to share regarding Our Joan.  I do look for any news that Joe might have shared daily on Face Book.

SHIRLEY, needless to say Vail has changed a LOT, and I must admit it is a place that I always enjoy going to.  It is like stepping into a nice village in Europe. 

LARRY, you would never have a problem finding plenty of places to stay and eat on Vail now.  It stay open year round now with summers being nearly as busy as it is during the ski season.  Shockingly, Kurt sent a picture from one of the lifts today, saying that the sun was out, the powder was perfect and best of all it was not crowded.  I did not buy a Instant Pot as there are none to be had and seems it will be the middle of February before they are.  We bought one at Costco.

GLORIA, I am sorry to read that Regina is having to go through radiation treatments.  I do understand their wanting to do this extra step though just to make sure.  I sure hope and pray she will be fine and can enjoy the rest of her life. 

Pleasant dreams to all. 

Jenny

Good morning everyone...

Here is the post from Ken about his Mom.

https://www.seniorsandfriends.org/index.php?topic=454.msg117396;boardseen#new


No new snow to deal with and the cold is sticking with us -20°F at the moment. Laundry was caught up yesterday and hubby's sis came for a nice visit.

Hal, hope your cough soon leaves you.

June, your body must have like the routine of using albuterol.I know we all don't care to take meds but if they help they are worth it.

Gloria, prayers for Regina  and a clean bill of health at the end.

Jenny, are you happy with the pressure cooker?

Jane, I love mishmash, no recipe and everything taste delicious!!

Larry, Lloyd answered about the snow and ice. When you have snow on top of the ice you can't see it is very slippery. A few years ago I took a pail of bird seed to put in the feeders and crossing the drive way I found myself looking up into clear blue sky. Once I checked everything out, nothing broken I got up, minus the birdseed as it was scattered all over the driveway. I had stepped on ice under the snow. When hubby came home he asked why would I throw birdseed all over the driveway :coolsmiley:

Hope everyone stays warm today.
Enjoy your day.

Good morning Everyfriend!  Weatherbug says the temp is 6º and fells like it.  I'm not going to give the car a chance to make a fool of me.  I'll be getting dressed later and waiting.  My son says we'll find a battery today and someone to install it.  We shall see!  I have an appointment on Monday and I'm going to cancel it just in case. 

WM didn't have the battery I need and the closest store that does is 50 miles away.  I thought about going there but he only has one and there's no guarantee he'll have it when I get there.  My WM is getting a shipment of batteries overnight Sunday night but he doesn't get a list of what they are.  I guess I'll wait and see...unless my son comes up with something.  There goes $150 bucks or so out of my insulation fund!  Maybe I should rename it it "The Emergency Fund"!

I hope you all have a lovely day...warmer if possible.  I don't want to wish my life away at this advanced age but I'm really looking forward to SPRING!

Yearning for Spring here, too, Jane.  We're cold again but happily we aren't as cold as you are up there in PA.  At least, the sun is coming up and that seems to make the cold weather more bearable.

I'm so sorry to have our fears about Jeanne Lee confirmed by her son via Lloyd.  It's all part of getting older to lose friends and family more often but it doesn't make it any easier to go through.  The only consolation is that they no longer have to live with the restrictions of ill health and age.

I'm hibernating again.  I just can't tolerate going out in this cold so I stay in my warm house and put on another layer....or two.....or three.... of clothes and wool afghans and just keep as comfortable as I can until Mother Nature decides to let up on us for awhile.  Thankfully, my son and I are not dealing with illness this time and that makes it easier to get through the cold times.

Hope you get a new battery soon, Jane.  I have David go out and start my car just to make sure it will do what it is supposed to do.  It better start!  I had AAA put in a new battery just a little less than a year ago.  They came out to my driveway and installed it there.  Easy solution.

That reminds me.....I got an email from Amazon that our area is now able to order groceries on line from Whole Foods and they will be delivered to my door within 2 hours.  Yes, the service costs a little extra but sometimes it would be worth it if the weather is just too bad (or cold) for me, or David, to get out to the grocery store.  I remember when I was very little that my mother would call the local grocery store (Ott's Grocery) and tell them what she needed and very shortly they would be at the door and even bring the groceries inside for her.  Also, the delivery person would always have time to chat and catch her up on the local happenings (gossip).  We may live in a high tech modern age but "the more things change the more they remain the same".    ;D

Shirley, I hate Sweet Gum trees, too.  I have two that overhang my driveway and they always make a mess with those gum balls.  I have to be very careful to watch where I step because they can roll under your foot and make you fall if you aren't very careful.

Take extra care, everyone.

Hi Everyone.We are back to winter temperatures again today.  It was 26 degrees when I arose and will only get up to the low 40's this afternoon.  The only thing on the agenda is going to Sunday School and Church.  I will bring the devotional for our Sunday School this morning and perhaps lead the singing of the two hymns, which I have done for the last two weeks.  I no longer have a strong voice but can read the music and sing on key and we have a microphone.  After Church I will stop somewhere and bring something home for our main meal of the day.  Pat has come down with a bit of bronchitis and has been doing a lot of coughing.  However, she has been using Zicam and she thinks the cough is better this morning.  Her back is feeling better this morning also and she didn't start the day with the icepack.  Hopefully she will be able to enjoy a good day.

Lloyd, I have started using my CPAP machine and oxygen when I rest in the afternoon as well as at night so rack up some large hours per day on it.  It sounds like you were able to get some good sleep.  You certainly had a cold day.

Mary Ann, I think my wife has mastered the online grocery shopping and expect you will soon do so as well.  She does miss going to the store as would see things she needed but forgets to order online.  She is keeping a grocery list and that helps if she can remember to put it on the list.  I hope you will come to like the online ordering.  I haven't had to do it as Pat takes care of it from her easy chair. 

Shirley, I have never made a hot milk cake because I have never cooked very much and if I make a cake it will be from a box.  I did eat a lot of it as I was growing up as had many meals at my grandmother's table.  I do remember that some of the frosting would turn to sugar but it was still tasty.  I read yesterday that some hospitals are now prohibiting children under 13 to visit in them because of the danger of bringing in the flu germs and the sick people in the hospital don't need that.

Gloria, glad the warm weather and rain have pretty well eliminated the snow.  You will be ready for the next snow storm now with someplace to put it.  A lot of our roads and other infrastructure is really getting old.  They are having trouble with sinkholes in Augusta do to the age of the waterlines.  The Interstate highways were built to a 25 year life expectancy and that is long past and much rebuilding is now required.  The same way with the bridges. 

deAngel, glad your part of the park isn't having the power failures.  Winter is definitely back after a brief but pleasant pause. 

Callie, I think "procrastinating" is a job and worthy of being on the to-do list.  Things will eventually get done. 

I know we are all saddened by the passing of Jeanne Lee and yet can be thankful that the struggles she faced with her health situation is over. 

Lloyd, Jane has asked me to put your document in this discussion and I will work on it and will do so today or tomorrow. 

Jane, glad your Mish-Mash casserole turned out well.  Over the years Pat has made many similar dishes that could not be repeated since they used whatever was available.  Sorry you couldn't get the battery at Walmart and now have quite a journey to get it. 

Shirley, here is a link to Jeanne Lee sons posting that has his email address.  I am doubtful he will check back into the discussions and wonder if an email would be better as undoubtedly he would see this and perhaps share it with his sister.   I see that Amy has shared the link to Ken's posting about his Mom.

June, hope you have a better day today and will continue with your treatments. 

Jenny, you sound like Pat as she was a bit concerned about using the Instant Pot (I see you were not able to get the Instant Pot).  She made delicious mac and cheese a couple of days ago and did so in a very short period of time including cooking the macaroni in it to start the recipe.  She is finding many recipes on the web for the Instant Pot. 

Amy, that sounds like a perfectly good question your husband asked about the bird seed on the driveway. Glad you weren't hurt from that fall.  Fortunately ice and snow are not something that very often happens here in South Carolina and if it does we will be staying inside until it is gone.

Phyllis, good news about Whole Foods delivering in two hours.  Our Whole Food store that was close by closed this last year so we no longer have that option.

Good morning everyone, feels like winter is still here. After hitting 63° early yesterday it is now 17° according to the TV and the sun is shining. Now except for the piles of snow the plows left and we had our January thaw we are in for snow this week. No idea how much but we do know that winter is far from over. We have had several big snowfalls on St. Patrick's day and even in April.

MARY ANN  where I can order online for delivery they do not have everything and everything seems to be in large packages, no small ones. Still for someone like me who cannot get to a market it is very convenient. I do miss going into a market and seeing what's new and picking my own produce. I KNOW I am old already  :(

GLORIA de  like you it was warmer after midnight yesterday that after the sun rose. Winter this year really got to these old bones. Do not have to go out in the cold to feel it either. I really have been turning the heat up this winter. Same here along the shore where people have their summer houses. A storm either damages them or washes them away and they rebuild in the same place again.

CALLIE  I have a folder like you and keep putting off clearing it out.  I must have some things in there from 10 years ago. Doubt I need those anymore.

LLOYD  thank you. Jeanne Lee is in a better place now where she is with God. We will all miss her.

JENNY  I wish someone had Joe's email address so we could find out about JOAN. I know we all would like to know.  Thank you for you prayers for Regina. She is in my prayers and thoughts all the time especially with them living so far away from everything. At least they  will not have to go to Phoenix-a 7 hour round trip- and it can be done in Kingman, a 2 hour round trip.

AMY  thank you for the link. I will let Regina know she has prayers coming from my cyber family. She did join SN years ago but never had time to post much. You are so right about that hidden ice. I know I looked up at the sky a few tines because of it.

JANE  good luck getting that battery today. Like you I am looking forwad to spring and finally warmer weather.

PHYLLIS  I am with you about dressing in layers in this weather. At least I do not have to worry about heating bills as that is included in my rent. I do turn it up till I can be comfortable.

LARRY  the bridges in this state are in bad shape and if not fixed soon I am afraid some will collapse during rush hour. There are many 18 wheelers going on all the highways and our governor wants to put a tax on them. It would be easy to go around the state but local truckers are against it. They say they will take their businesses out of state. There would be less tax.

Larry that is fine if she did not forward it to  you I can put a copy of it to you in email. by email it will just be I think in black ant white. although in the reply to her son sent to me it showed in the gold color it is on my desk top. I got the original I put the border around it and saved it in gold. in those days  I could think and reamber better than I do now.  I posted same here as she did a copy  of what he said in reply better twice than not at all Have a great day.

 Gloria well being one of the many things i done was a over the road truck driver. I realize the prows and cons of it. they do not get as a whole not get the respect they derisive. too many folks do not stop if it were not for there effort they would not be eating as well as they do. they also do not give them the room they need to maneuver the rigs and the blind spots in turns. I do not reamber  the year but years back the drivers got tired of it and shut down and blocked many major roads for a while  and it opened there eyes for a while. folks need to try and put there self in there place for a while. Like the old Indian said ware there shoes and walk a mile in there shoes first.

Sunday morning, and I did not go down for Chapel services. Again. I think I have missed too many meetings, but the body rules my life now. I went down for lunch yesterday but had to take half my food home.....just too tired to eat. I'm going to try again today, then I can come home and just fall apart. See you later, God willing and the creek don't rise.  :)
As long as we are here, let's dance.
