I find enough to click on without having to click on things I don't care to see...  to each their own.  I doubt FC is showing anything that can't be found on a calendar (or in person) at a Walmart.

Off-Topic / Re: Dollar Tree cutting their sizes
« on: March 22, 2018, 04:06:09 pm »Message ID: 1204978
I had gotten some little plastic bins to hold items in the refrigerator, from Dollar Tree.  They kept losing their shape or breaking, I couldn't believe it because I had gotten some a few years back that seemed identical, and they lasted a long time.

I was recently going through some things I no longer need, and found one of those plastic bins I had bought a few years back from Dollar Tree.  The quality was so much better, it was a thicker plastic (wouldn't bend or twist to lose its shape, or break).  So even the quality of items has gotten just as cheap as they can get.  Nothing is made to last anymore.  A person is better off going to thrift stores & yard sales and buying vintage items, back then things were made to last.

I never cared about sheets until I bought some cotton jersey sheets, made to feel as comfy as a favorite t-shirt.  (So comfy!!)  I loved them so much, I went back and bought a bunch of them.  They've lasted several years.  Don't like any other sheets now.

Off-Topic / Re: In the trunk

I have a love-hate situation with the car I have right now.  (Meaning I LOVE that it gets me places but I HATE everything else about it.)  I had the car for 3 1/2 years before I even opened the trunk and the person that had it before me really left it a mess!  All of that is gone.  There's a plastic shovel (for snow), and some "HEET", some spare oil & antifreeze.  A funnel.  I don't even know if there's a spare tire in there... I'll have to remember to check when our snow melts.

18 is the age they become adults and get to make adult decisions.  If they don't have any sense by that age, they probably never will.  If they have their heart set on a "Professional" Career choice, they might want to consider how their appearance is going to affect that career and all the opportunities along the way.  People would like to think they aren't judged by the appearance, but those first impressions people get can make or break a "Professional Career".

I haven't had that problem at all with FC.  I use Google Chrome and Avast Antivirus.

Off-Topic / Re: What do you feed your pet?
« on: January 22, 2018, 02:54:16 pm »Message ID: 1192927
My dogs & cats are on a rotational, fresh foods & some raw, some dehydrated & freeze-dried foods.  The dog is on a low-starch diet, so if one of his dehydrated or freeze-dried foods have more starch than it should, I add protein to it.  The cats are on a grain-free diet.  During a typical week, a breakfast might be kibble (Wysong, Nature's Logic, Fromm for the dog) & kibble (Instinct, Farmina, Nature's Logic) for the cats.  Dinner would be some of their dehydrated food with an added protein -OR- a totally raw meal of minced meat, some organ meat and some bone.  They get a different protein each meal.  (I don't combine kibble with fresh or raw meat as it can cause inflammation.)

For fresh foods, I sometimes add chopped organic kale or parsley to their kibble.  They enjoy chopped boiled egg, cottage cheese, goat's milk, kefir, plain Greek yogurt, berries, chopped veggies (broccoli, carrots, peas, green beans, brussel sprouts, sauerkraut) sometimes fresh, sometimes steamed.  They get sardines a few times a week.  Coconut Oil & Wild Salmon Oil daily.

They get sweet potatoes, pumpkin about once a week.  I add different supplements to their foods on a rotational basis.

They're all very healthy, no health issues, clean teeth, healthy skin & coat, no ear infections, no yeast problems, nothing.  They range in age from 4-12.  (The one cat was given to me at death's door, and she is corona-virus positive.  She has a few issues from being over-treated at her previous vet until they gave up on her and recommended euthanasia.  She's been doing 90% better, I've had her a year & a month.)  She LOVES to eat healthy and she's a healthy 8 lbs now with a soft, shiny coat.

For a treat, my cats enjoy a raw chicken leg, it keeps their teeth looking great also.  I try to keep the dog's meals coordinated with the cat's meals.

I love pizza.  I make it at least once a week (sometimes more), with a thin crust and lots of healthy veggies and very little cheese.  Sometimes though...gotta have a Mac N Cheese Pizza, not so healthy but sooo sooo GOOD!!

Off-Topic / Re: Do you feed the squirrels?
« on: January 22, 2018, 02:32:49 pm »Message ID: 1192921
I've put food out away from the house where they can find it and I watch them enjoy themselves.  One of them has made friends with my timid, indoor only cat though (through the window).  The squirrel will be outside and make a noise against the window and my cat will go running to the window to see his friend.  They're so cute!

For those using Vick's vapor rub, it has camphor in it making it dangerous to cats health...just a heads up for those with cats.

I had several weeks misery with sinus/cold issues and I don't do meds either.  I tried many of the home remedies and none of them helped much.  I love my vaporizer.  Then I did some reading and tried 1/2 teas cayenne pepper in a glass of tomato juice along with taking a odorless garlic pill (from Amazon) four times a day.  It broke it up in 5 days.  Still keeping up with the garlic tabs, but only doing 2 a day.  It's helped so much with my allergy issues.  The reviews on Amazon are really helpful, people said they take this when starting to feel like they are getting sick and it goes away.

I buy the majority of my clothes online from various sites.  Most sites have a size chart that goes by one's measurements and I've bought tops, bottoms, pj's, work clothes, and even shoes with no problems.  (The ONLY problem I had with something not fitting was a cami-top I ordered my usual size in and when it arrived, I realized the item was an item sized for Junior's and not Women's.)

One site has items back-order quite a bit, I've never called them and thanks to this discussion I never will.   :)

Off-Topic / Re: Today is National Sock Day--Dec. 4--how many matching pairs do you have?
« on: January 15, 2018, 01:37:48 pm »Message ID: 1191815
I have a thing for socks, like some gals have for shoes.  I never counted how many pairs but they are everywhere... 3 bins full and some stashed in a suitcase for traveling, and then 2 bins with brand new ones.  I've ALWAYS had to have lots of socks, even as a little kid.  Not sure why, but having new socks brings me comfort.  lol

Off-Topic / Re: 3rd shift
« on: January 15, 2018, 01:32:59 pm »Message ID: 1191813
I worked third shift for many years (different jobs) and it was my favorite shift because usually the shift was more "laid back" than day shift.  Any "big-wigs" came through during the day and they all had to deal with that stress. 

It was also nice during the summer because I could enjoy the nice days and then work nights, didn't mind giving up alot of sleep to get things done.  Getting paid more for all that was BONUS. 

 For the past couple years though, I just prefer to go to work early & come home early and try to get some sleep at a decent time.  Plus the job I have now doesn't have a 3rd shift.

Off-Topic / Re: friends

I did like Friends. I only started watching it when it was in reruns.

As a matter of fact, they did comment on gays and stuff on that show, but then they would follow it up
with "not that there's anything wrong with that" quite frequently.

Shouldn't that cover their sins a little?  :dontknow:


:fish:


I think that was said repeatedly in the show "Seinfeld", I don't remember them saying that on the show "Friends" but I could have missed it.  I found both shows to be entertaining at the time but boring now.  I would still rather re-watch them though, than hear what new thing someone has found to be offended about now.

Off-Topic / Re: Anyone with pets outside in the cold ?
« on: January 08, 2018, 06:08:48 pm »Message ID: 1190560
No pets out in the cold, they are all indoor babies staying warm & cozy.  Bought a heater this year just for the pets room for when I'm at work, since the house is so drafty this year.  My dog likes to steal my blankets & wrap himself up in them.   ;D  Love them to much to let them freeze or get sick.  :heart:
