RE: What variety of mint is best for our..........

My retirement job was working seasonal at a large green house. A local bar & grill bought all the mint we had. They were going to grow it themselves and save a lot of money. I’m not much help to you because I can’t remember what kind we sold them.

RE: Doc told me I'm overweight.

Just losing 5# takes an amazing amount of stress off your knees.

RE: Laundry money

In the AZ park we used, we bought $5.00 laundry card. We could load money on it and that’s how we paid for machine operation. She cautioned us to not load it up near the end of our stay because there were no refunds. We turned in the card when leaving and got the $5 deposit back. Worked good for them and us, I think.

RE: How would you interpret the meaning of this sign...?

Today I saw a new store with a big horizontal “OPEN” in the window. In front of this sign was a 18x24 “CLOSED” sign. ??

RE: Rolling over IRA's, 401k, 403b's etc (tax defered stuff)

If you're philanthropically inclined, there is a little know rule that allows you to take your RMD and donate it to a qualified charity and it doesn't count toward your ordinary income but DOES satisfy the RMD. The caveat is the check MUST be made directly to the charity. These were the tax rules for 2017, but with the new tax laws I recommend talking to your tax adviser before making the commitment. If you would rather see the money go to your children while you are still alive to witness their joy in receiving it, you can always take your RMD, pay the taxes, and gift it to the kids. Doug Currently getting set up so our annual church donation will go from IRA directly to them. We give anyway so may as well bypass us.

RE: Gettin' Eggy With It

All of the above plus pickled eggs. Mom sold eggs so we had an abundance. I make homemade buns and egg salad and the grandchildren are in heaven.

RE: New to Trailer camping, what are some must haves, and wants

I bought a spiral notebook from Dollar Store. It’s got my checklists in there. You will absolutely discover things you wished you had brought, so jot it in the notebook then it gets packed next time. A good thing to remember is unload and leave home the things you find you won’t need. It takes up your valuable space.

RE: Clock

We have had one on each of our last 3 RVs. We used a screw and a small toggle bolt. It never moved even after bouncing down a couple of dirt roads, I-59 in Alabama and I-84 in Pennsylvannia. Same here, never fallen yet

RE: Remember the Alamo, Remember Goliad

We visited Goliad area last year. Lotads of history (new to us) about the Goliad battlefield and the Hanging Tree by the Courthouse in town. Enjoyed music & brews at the Goliad Brewery too. Just open on weekends, I think.

RE: Los Algodones Dentist For Best Denture Sizing/Fit Experience

DIL and DGD are certified dental assistants. Another DGD is a licensed hygentist. They get to see the unacceptable dental work. One man even demanded he should get his cheap South of the Border dental work repaired for .....free. As for myself, I’d have no problem getting eye glasses down there, but no dental work for me, thank you.

RE: Egglette Advisory

Seems a lot of fuss to avoid peeling an egg? Agree. bring eggs to a boil, 11 minutes later, turn off the heat and let them sit (covered) until water loses its extreme heat. Learned from Grandma & Mom.

RE: I Must Have Had a Senior Moment

Funny stories. A favorite story in my small hometown was about an old gent named Pete (widower) who parked in front of the Pool Hall and played cards. He came out, drove a car (exactly like his) home and put it in the garage. This was back in the day when nobody removed the keys from their cars. The little neighbor kid came over for a visit and spotted the different car in the garage and brought it to Pete’s attention. There was no cause for alarm about a missing car because another elderly man (Tom) had driven Pete’s car home and parked it in his garage. I’m not sure when and how the exchange was made.

RE: Potato Soup

This recipe was used by a little country church for their “famous annual soup supper.” Sadly the church has closed but the recipe lives on ! Thickening agent: 4 cups powdered milk 1 cup all purpose flour 1 stick softened butter Blend well with whisk. (2 cups are needed but the extra freezes well) Soup: 8 cups diced potatoes 4 cups water 1/2 cup chopped onion 1/2 cup chopped celery 1/2 cup diced carrots 1/4 tsp white pepper 2 tsp chicken stock base 3 cups milk 2 cups thickening agent 1/2 cup butter Cook potatoes, onion, celery, carrots, pepper and chicken base in 4 cups water until vegetables are tender. Mash, leaving lumps if desired. Add milk, blend well. Whisk in thickening agent. Continue to stir over low heat until thick, adding butter while doing this.

RE: Fat-Free Half & Half?

RE: The Lumber Yard

I’m over 65 years old and I cringe when DH sends me off to get something. I think I know what I want, but I can assure you they will ask me something I do not know.

RE: What do you cooked in your Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker

Today I had CHEESECAKE made in an IP. Better than store bought.

RE: Honoring our Veterans

For the first time in years, we missed our local Veterans Day Program that was held on Friday. We won’t let that happen again.

Keosauqua Iowa

Amish family in the area has built a new building on their farm. In the front, they operate a bakery and in the back is a large dining room. Occasionally they make a buffet meal for the public. We’ve eaten in some spectacular places but this is on top of my list

RE: Camping is popular

As for shortage of rv parks, we spent a week in New Orleans. The park wasn’t fancy but pretty secure. The grounds was a motel torn down after Katrina. Sewer was in place so I thought it was a good idea to develop it that way. I would way more like to own an rv park over a motel !
