RE: American flag

I worked in the office of a public school years ago. Every day the older elementary students had the job of putting up/taking down the flag on the grounds. The phone was ringing and the secretary was busy so I answered it for her. The retired Navy man on the other end identified himself and asked if everything was alright at school. I didn't follow his thought, but then he told me we were flying our flag upside down. He said it's a sign of distress.

RE: How many sides are too many?

Going to DD/SIL's and she cooks big, so I'll take empty containers along then we can send left overs home with the 2 boys. They won't turn it down, let me assure you. I will make 1 pumpkin pie (she makes apple crisp) 2 salads and fresh buns. They handle the turkey, potatoes, dressing, sweet potatoes and who knows what else. Better wear elastic waist pants !

RE: Are you getting enough Vitamin D ?

FIL read about natural medicine all the time. Some of his theories I believe, some I don't. He did say, it's important to get sun exposure on the top of your hands so don't use sunscreen there. Just sayin'

Using rv during travel out of cold climate

We were first-timer Snowbirds in 2014. We traveled 4 days down/back with a winterized travel trailer and spent $360 on motels. This year we're going to save those bucks for "fun" things and utilize the trailer during the trip. Any tips/advice traveling this way would be appreciated.

RE: Texas Toast in Toaster

In our area, Texas Toast is just thicker sliced bread. I'd put it in my toaster without another thought.

Stainless steel cookware - recommendations ?

Going to buy stainless steel saucepans for the house. Won't need a full set - just saucepans. What brands are you happy with ?

RE: Beef Roast in Crock Pot

Good idea you have to brown the roast outside. And you put the meat right on the grate? No pan should be needed?

RE: Favorite microwave recipes?

The microwave makes great old fashioned oatmeal.

RE: nature the best sleep aid

Our camper was backed up to a lake and we opened the windows and fell asleep to the sound of waves hitting the shore. Good memories.

RE: What are You Putting up for Later Use?

When DH's parents were alive, we would can beef for them as a Christmas gift. They went through it like a hot knife through butter.

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.
