RE: What are You Putting up for Later Use?

Froze peppers for chili. Made 5 lbs of ham balls and froze in smaller containers. Almost always have cookies frozen for grandchildren to take home. Tomato plants didn't do much this year, so no juice canned, instead froze a dozen jars for chili and hot dishes. Canned 12 pints of beet pickles. Will make jam or jelly for small gifts at Christmas

RE: No campground spots available, what to do?

We had a nephew's wedding this Spring in another state, so I googled some area town websites and found a beautiful little campground. Well maintained, with electric service and nice dump station on site. I think it was $8 per day. So I suggest you try small towns.

RE: clogged gray water pipes

My best friend is an empty pickle jar which I use for grease and greasy stuff. Put on the lid and store it under the sink until it's full then into the garbage it goes. Even do this at home.

RE: just got diagnosed

Learn to read labels AND portion sizes. Amazing how little people know about this tool. Wheat bread is misleading: it should be "whole grain" or "whole wheat" only. Do extra walking (like park away from the store). Get off the couch - get active. Eat smaller and oftener. My Dr. says diabetes is exploding. I asked because of lifestyle and diet? She affirmed it. Growing up, soda was a treat once a week to me, I've worked with people who drink 3 and 4 every single day. It's a change to your life, but it's do-able.

RE: Chiggers from the sky!

DH and I have nasty bites on feet and ankles. Itch like crazy, then seep, then itch more and finally scab over. It takes forever for the red mark to leave. No animals or birds in the house. I vacuum carpets and wash bedding weekly. Mattress gets vacuumed 1 or 2 times a year. From the internet description, it could be fleas and animals don't have to be present to get them ??? They can jump on us when we pet the neighbor dogs ??? I want relief !

RE: not snowbirding

We attend all grandkids events that we can, but we need time for ourselves too so we go and keep in touch. We didn't see one grandchild until she was a week old and by that time the visitors had been there and gone, so we got her all to ourselves. Nice. My Grandfather was out making a living in 1905 and didn't get to see his 4th child until he was 6 weeks old. It happens.

RE: Mail problems very fustrated

Our carrier gave us yellow cards to leave for him when we want our mail held. He holds it and even hand delivers it to the door to make sure we got home as scheduled. We give all our service people (garbage, recycle, mail, mechanic, etc etc) a money gift at Christmas for the good service we get all year. No complaints from here.

RE: Favorite soup recipes

I make "Portuguese Bean Soup" which is made like Ham/Bean Soup except instead of ham, use 1 or 2 rings of smoked sausage. When I make it, I think of our trip to Alaska because it was on the menu in a little roadside café up there.

RE: just got diagnosed

Borderline here, but not diabetic. Doctor says I made insulin, but my body does not use it correctly. She sent me to 3 classes and I hated thought of going, but actually didn't mind it. I had a good handle on what to eat, but I could see some others in the class were in the dark about what's good for them. I try to eat a little protein before bed. I steam whole bags (sometimes 2 bags) of vegetables and reheat as needed to make sure I eat enough vegs. I have some numbness in my left foot toes and I just came back from vacation where we walked 6 to 7 miles every day - my foot feels 100% better, so I can attest exercise helps. I bought a good pedometer and check it often so it keeps me motivated. Don't worry if it counts steps when you unload the dishwasher, etc. There's stretching and bending involved, so that's activity too. I use my phone alarm to remind me to check my blood 2 hours after the last bite of food. Grandson is a RN and he says "doctor can only advise, then it's up to the patient", so take charge of your life. Activity is good.

RE: A response to reduce unsolicited live sales calls.

I speak my second language to them and it seems to work. I've had them ask if anyone in the house can speak English because they need to talk with them and not me. They hang up pretty quick. I read this someplace: when phone rings, homeowner says "who is this because this is a crime scene and we need to interview you." Click.

RE: Check your CC & Debit Card bank statement

We match our receipts to the statement religiously.

Share your favorite ethnic food

I have many. This one is simple. RED CABBAGE Shred a head of red cabbage into large pan. Add 4 T. butter, 4 T. sugar, 2 T. vinegar and 4 oz. water. Bring to boil, cover and simmer slowly for 2.5 hours. Add a little more sugar and vinegar to taste and simmer another 10 minutes. This reheats well and even gets better. (Recipe from my Danish Grandmother)

RE: Favorite soup recipes

I save all clean veg cuttings, peelings, bones in a plastic pail in the freezer. This is cooked in a large crock pot with water/seasonings. When done, I strain and discard the "stuff". Then I have very delicious broth and I store it in quart jars (do not fill over 3 cups so there's room for expansion) and store in freezer. I remove the lid and microwave frozen broth for 3 minutes or so. Use for soup. Makes the house smell amazing.

RE: Knives

Our 5er came with a flat wood panel along the rear of the stove that had slots in it for our knives. Works just fine. I was told it's a vent for the stove, not for knives (?)

RE: Leaves are chaning and falling

July/Aug are normally hot and dry here. Had 2" rain around July 4 and so far in Aug we've gotten over 8" of rain. Crops look amazing.

RE: pets anyone ?

We take care of the kids dogs and grandkids dogs when asked. Glad to do it for them, but even more glad when they pick them up. Ties us down too much.
