Offers / Re: My new "normal" daily routine
« on: March 29, 2020, 09:37:19 am »Message ID: 1318590
I hear you about depressing.  I used to logon, get my mail, my PTC, do some forum posts, get my $0.05 for tomorrow and be out the door to work.  I'd cash out every other month.

Now I get my daily email, poke around on videos, coupons, and surveys, do forum posts.  Over a few days I usually get enough to get the PTC again.

It has definitely dampened my enthusiasm, but I keep returning.  Today I was glad I did.  I had the great fortune of qualifying AND completing AND earning from a FC survey!  $2.20   YEP, made my day!

Gross oldbuddy!

My Mom says she has started saving her newspapers.  She figures she used it as a girl, she can do it again if it comes to it.

Her tip:  Don't use the glossy pages!

I live in Minnesota.  Here's the latest:

Wednesday, March 18: The number of reported COVID-19 cases in Minnesota has reached 77, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

Cases have been reported in 16 counties.  The state has performed 2,761 tests for the virus, according to MDH.

Latest Update in Minnesota:
Total of 235 confirmed cases in 31 Minnesota counties.  One of these is just one county away.
Since the start of the outbreak, 21 patients have been hospitalized in the state.
Currently 12 patients are hospitalized with five in intensive care.

Our  Gov. Tim Walz will self-quarantine for two weeks after learning Monday he'd been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

I have been praying for my family, friends and co-workers as my church family and the leaders and health care workers. 
It amazes me that some people still are not taking this seriously.

TAP has not been my friend for many many days.......I get D/Q'd before I get to the surveys.  After so many tries, I have been discouraged to even go back to try again at TAP. 

I'm glad to see others have been getting good results!  Keep it up.

I don't ever get qualified to even earn from TAP anymore.

Oh my!  It is very troubling that we as civilized people would resort to robbing anyone...Amazon truck, UPS trucks, etc.

We are in strange times, but I can't understand robbing/pillaging.....this whole situation may last longer than we can imagine.  Compassion and kindness for our neighbors and those in need is what we need more of.

Currently we seem to be stocked.  BUT, with 4 in the house, we do go through it. 
I would think that if everyone would stop stockpiling/hoarding tp, the supply would right itself in a short time.

If we do run out, I have kleenex tissues to help us out.

If it gets continually worse, I imagine I can cut up old t-shirts and go back in time to when we had babies in cloth diapers.  Rinse, soak, wash, reuse.

Off-Topic / Robins Have Returned - I guess We're in for 3 More Snows
« on: March 18, 2020, 04:52:04 pm »Message ID: 1317376
A few weeks ago the robins returned to southwest Minnesota. 

There is an Old Wives Tale about Robins.  The saying goes: Spring will come when it snows on the Robins’ tail 3 times. So what that means is that once the Robin comes back, it will snow three times and then the winter will be all over.

So far it has snowed ONCE.  Today, we are currently in another Winter Weather Advisory:

Mixed precipitation expected. Total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches and ice accumulations of around one tenth of an inch. Winds gusting as high as 45 mph.

That will make it TWO times.

Spring is getting closer!!

Every year our family has a Reunion in June.  It is always scheduled for the next year right after the current one is held.

This year it will be June 28.  My Mom will be 90 in August. 

Since everyone will already be making the trip to Iowa, we plan to celebrate her big day in June. 

Officially she won't be 90 for 5.5 weeks.  I hope no one has issues with us throwing her a celebration a bit early.

Our son is grilling chicken tonight.  Also having red, yellow, orange peppers on the grill.  My mouth is starting to water just thinking about it.

On a Positive Note.........

Spring is coming to southwestern Minnesota.  The robins are here.  The ice is going out of the pond in our town.  (You read that correctly.  In the state with 10,000 lakes, I live in the only county without a LAKE.  Rock County has lots of ROCKS.)

Utah was hit by an earthquake today.  I just video facetimed with my granddaughter who lives within 10 miles of Magna, UT.  She felt it this morning.  All is well at their place.
