Off-Topic / Daily walk
« on: May 21, 2020, 04:37:34 am »Message ID: 1325537
I drive by a cemetery to take my dog for his run in the country.  Passing the cemetery I notice a couple, ladies,  walking  relatively fast paced.  I didn't notice a car.  So I assumed they weren't visiting.  I thought, now that's an idea.  Way to avoid crowds and still get that morning walk in.  I would have never thought to do that.    But I don't go to cemeteries as a rule.

Off-Topic / Out of the comfort zone.
« on: May 14, 2020, 06:55:10 am »Message ID: 1324838
I stepped outside the other night to see what was happening down the street.  As I was watching that unfold I noticed my neighbor spraying his yard.  Killing what people think are weeds.  Well I said something to him about it.  I was nice.  I think.  I did get my point across.  Told him what it was he was killing and why he probably shouldn't.  One of the claims I made to him is that he will probably need that food when the stores are empty.  That brought up the price of meat and how little there is on the shelves and that you can only get a limited amount.  He continued to kill the clover and dandelion and other things that are edible.  I so much didn't mind him killing his food, but those chemicals blow to my yard.  That is what my concern is.  I don't use chemicals in my yard.  I eat the lambs quarter, and clover.  I like the look of dandelions. 
My saying something, surprised me.  I normally don't confront people.  Even though it didn't change what he was doing,  I felt better for talking to him about it.

Off-Topic / Label of origin
« on: May 05, 2020, 07:58:11 am »Message ID: 1323812
They have voted that its discriminating to have the labels.  I think I have the right to know where the food I buy is coming from and how it's raised.  I don't know about this.  Kept me from voting for a candidate years ago, because he was against labeling like this.  I have heard people say to buy American then.  Well if it's not labeled how would I know where it came from.

Does any one still celebrate May basket day?  The first time my husband seen this happen, he thought the town kids were being brats.  He hadn't had the pleasure of the original door bell ditching.  LOL  Happy May Day to all.

Off-Topic / What are you doing?
« on: April 20, 2020, 07:22:50 am »Message ID: 1321714
The weather is getting nicer.  After about 20 yrs, I finally got the back yard fenced in.  Soon will be able to open the back door and kick the dog and kids out.  Not have to worry about them as much.  The kids in the back yard leaves my front yard open to more planting.  I am looking forward to gardening this year. 

I also am taking a sign language class on line.  Hope to get that done this week.

Wish everyone a good day.

Off-Topic / Local t.v. and school
« on: April 14, 2020, 09:21:44 am »Message ID: 1320913
Our local t.v. station is airing live school on a t.v. channel.  Well that is to say certain grades come on at certain times and they have a teacher that goes through the actual teaching.  It's a great idea.  I think it's a bit boring.  I am making the kids at least sit and listen to it.  Who knows maybe in a few weeks they will actually pay attention to it.  My granddaughter has online class that she checks into everyday.  It's the youngest that I want to pay attention.  He is only 2. I still keep missing the preschool classes.

Off-Topic / Easter Eve/What do you do?
« on: April 11, 2020, 09:43:25 am »Message ID: 1320555
After years of working I finally have the  time to do Easter stuff with now my grandkids.  I didn't have time when my kids where growing up because I always worked holidays.  So I am looking forward to the traditional egg dying.  I ask my 12 yr old granddaughter how many eggs she wanted to color.  She says Oh, not a lot.  So I said 3?  She laughs and says you read my mind.  She also grew up with out the excitement of coloring eggs.  I am so looking forward to coloring eggs.  What are some of the things you do for Easter?

Off-Topic / bbq sauce papaya style
« on: April 07, 2020, 05:30:52 pm »Message ID: 1320153
Since I wasn't sure if I liked fresh papaya or not.  The kids didn't seem to really enjoy it to much.  I turned have of it into home made bbq sauce cooking some spare ribs in it right now.  It is pretty good.  And as usual I didn't right down what I used to make the sauce.  I will slow cook the ribs over night.    Use it for dinner tomorrow.

Off-Topic / Papaya
« on: April 07, 2020, 07:02:45 am »Message ID: 1320059
I am not sure that I like papaya.  I mean I don't dislike it.   I was trying to think what I could make with it.  I seen dressing from the seeds.  That has many ingredients that I don't have on  hand right now.  I thought about using the fruit in a dish like fried pork steak.  I don't think it would hold up to good being fried.  I will probably blend it up and make a smoothy out of it.  What do you think?  Do you like papaya?

Off-Topic / something different
« on: April 05, 2020, 09:07:20 am »Message ID: 1319737
Last night we actually read books out loud.  Turned off all phones computers and t.v.  My 2 year old grandson had about a 2 hour melt down.  Totally didn't understand no video's.  It was funny.

Off-Topic / finally some relief
« on: April 04, 2020, 08:35:32 am »Message ID: 1319586
Got in on the catch the truck game.  Made it in time to get toilet paper today.  I was getting ready to cut up old clothing.  So wasn't looking forward to that mess. 
Found out yesterday that our food bank gives out bread products and milk 3 times a week.  The school gives lunches to the kids and on Fridays they give enough lunches for the weekend.  That has been a huge relief. 
I also learned that since the court house is closed, and getting plates for your car is hard to manage now.  That you won't be pulled over for expired IN transits.  Another big relief.  Since my daughter went back to work and getting the school lunches falls to me.
They did close the play ground equipment at the parks.  We are still allowed to walk the trails but the rules still the same: 6 feet apart, no more than 10 to a group.  Been so cold you don't want to go out.
Just feel so much better the past few days.
How are you doing?

Off-Topic / waiting on trucks
« on: April 02, 2020, 12:26:11 pm »Message ID: 1319316
I feel like I am living 50 yrs ago.  Waiting on a truck to come in.  When I was a kid it was the mail truck.  Came twice a day same time every day.  My father in law was a home delivery milk man.  I can imagine some of his customers waiting on him to show up the same time every time.  Today I was on my way to get some toilet paper when we got a call, the truck has been delayed.  Won't be here until 6 or 7 pm.  The store closes at 8 pm and we are expecting a long line about 45 minutes long.

Off-Topic / crediting

Great still not crediting.  So discouraging.  Are you still experiencing this problem, with the Tap Surveys?

Off-Topic / asking for a tip?
« on: March 09, 2020, 07:56:00 am »Message ID: 1316268
I used to work as a waitress, never asked or hinted for a tip.  I think that is so rude.  Here lately when I order delivery, I fully intend to tip.  But when the order is 30.00 and I pay with 2 twenties, these people feel the need to say, "Do you want your change?"  I feel like telling them well now that you asked yes all of it.  But,  I tell them yes, with the difference in the tip.  Do you think it's rude to ask for a tip?  I do. I also think it rude not to tip.
