RE: Happy Birthday America

Put out the American Flag today to say Happy Birthday America. This is our birthday and not just another 3 day week end. Just got back from putting out 250 America flags (had some help). Flaguy Thank You, Flag Guy ! We appreciate what you do. Our flag flies in the front yard 365 days a year (we take it down in stormy weather, however). Grandpa and Grandma were immigrants and proud to vote and fly the red, white and blue. Happy 4th Everyone !

RE: loading and unloading supplies

I fill plastic baskets with handles by looking at my "camp list" and if I ever lose my list, then I'm in big trouble ! The whole loading process doesn't take long at all. Necessities: phone, medicine, glasses and money.

RE: Advice for First Time Cruisers

Our experience with Holland Am. was great. A cousin went along and he had some health issues so HA gave us perks to accommodate him (table near dining room door, rooms by elevator). Next time, I would skip the shore excursions (or be very selective) and just spend the day at the beach or in town. It was an unbelieveable smooth ride. Cosmetic bottles in the bathroom never even tipped over and I never slept so good. We did see a sick woman hanging by the rail - maybe alcohol related? I would do 7 days, because it would be sad to get off after 5 !!

RE: What did we do wrong

Son got a paper route when he was 8 years old and 7 year old sister helped. It was afternoon route and close to home in a small town. They kept it for almost 5 years then they graduated to baby-sitting and mowing yards. They had to save a portion of their money. In high school he worked at a salvage yard and she waited tables. They both got some post-high school training and went to work and married. All 4 have decent jobs and all 4 hold a second job. Between them, they have 5 children and all 5 work at least 1 job. We have a lot of pride when we see the work ethic of our family.

RE: Ever walk into the wrong trailer?

Friend was looking at the photos she just picked up in the store. Husband was waiting for her, but she got into wrong car with another man waiting for his wife. He said nothing and it took a minute before she realized she was sitting in wrong car with a stranger. Everyone got a good laugh.

RE: moving near kids/grandkids?

We were 60 miles from the kids and always had to go to there if we wanted to see them. Now we're 22 miles away and they drop in now and then since it's more convenient for them. We're living closer (but not too close). They need a favor now and then and we're happy to help out. We know people whose retirement has been completely taken over by their kids/grandkids. Of course, that's because they've allowed it to happen.

Wayne, Nebraska

The City of Wayne, Nebraska has a beautiful little campground on South Main Street. About 10 sites, all electric. 3 or 4 spaces on concrete for those passing through. Dump site too. $8.00

RE: Real Pickles

Buy a jar of Kosher Dills. Drain all the brine off and discard. Add 1 cup white granulated sugar and replace the lid tightly. Lay the jar on side in the refrigerator. Once a day, turn the jar. In a week, you'll have great pickles. (Brine can be kept for flavoring potato salad or brining cooked veggies such as brussel sprouts, carrots, cauliflower or even hard boiled eggs) PS: after brine is drained off and before sugar is added, the pickles need to be cut into thick chunks. Sorry about forgetting that step.

RE: Pets in a Resturant

Farmers Market has many signs "No Animals" (due to State Health rules). One man was proudly walking around on Saturday with his barking and disruptive dog. It almost tripped people and he's oblivious to it. Weather was cool and the dog would have been fine in the car. I love animals, but do they belong everywhere?

Another cast iron pan question

My cast iron problem is not rusty but really gunky with baked on grease and oil. Very gunky. Will oven cleaner, plastic bag and a plastic scrubber clean it up?

RE: You just cannot fix stupid

When in Hawaii, we stopped to watch the ferocious waves crashing in on high rocks. We were in a safe area, but we saw a man and his little children standing out on those slick rocks. They were close to the edge and getting sprayed with water and laughing it up. We moved on immediately because we didn't want to witness this stupid act. When we read about horrendous things happening, there's often more to the story.

RE: Food poisoning

I know people who ended up in the hospital so be careful. I hope someone checking on you.

RE: Ordered Andersen leveler--but not from Walmart

Wally World is my store of last resort. For starters, whatever I'm looking for is in the back of the store. And it seems that returned items are just taped shut and put back on the shelf. Maybe several times until somebody just keeps it because its too much trouble to return it. "Last resort" x2

RE: Sheets for an RV-Queen bed

I shortened the fitted sheet 6" and it fits. I sewed a 3 inch seam from side to side. This actually makes the sheet 6 inches shorter (3"+3"). I trimmed it to about an inch from the sewing line and enclosed the seam. Fits perfectly.

RE: bed sheets

We have the camper sheets from amazon (seller ab lifestyles) and the top sheet is fitted at the foot end with 2 of the same elastic corners as the bottom fitted sheet has on all 4. Stays put at the bottom so far I must say they should have designed them like this years ago. I altered both the top and bottom sheets: I positioned the TOP sheet on the bed and folded the sheet corners at the foot of the bed to resemble a fitted sheet then took it to the sewing machine and stitched. Our RV mattress is 6" shorter than the mattress at home so I sewed a 3" seam across the BOTTOM sheet to shorten it. I cut the excess off and enclosed the seam. Both fit perfect and stay put.

Low Carb Chicken Dish

In shallow bowl mix 1/3 cup low fat buttermilk or evaporated milk, 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives, 1 tsp. Dijon mustard, 1/4 tsp. hot sauce. Soak 4 chicken breasts in milk mixture for several hours and drain. (set a wire rack across the sink and place meat on rack to drain) In plastic bag, combine 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. black pepper, some Italian seasoning, parsley, lemon pepper (your choice). Add meat and shake well to coat. Move to sprayed oven safe dish. Bake 40 to 45 minutes uncovered.

Vegetable "Lasagna" (low carb)

1 spaghetti squash, cut in half and seeds removed. Microwave or bake until done. Flake out flesh with a fork and set aside in a colander to drain. Heat 2 Tblsp. olive oil in large fry pan then add and sauté: 1 diced pepper (any color), 1 diced small zucchini, 1 shredded carrot, 2 minced garlic cloves. Cook about 5 minutes and drain if needed. Add spaghetti squash to vegetable mixture. Then add 1 diced tomato, 8 oz can of tomato sauce, 4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Pour in oven safe dish. Sprinkle a little extra cheese on top. Bake 30 minutes, let it rest 5 minutes and serve. Almost anything works: fresh basil, left over broccoli/cauliflower, onion. I dice the pieces larger rather than smaller.

RE: Littering and it's effect on wildlife

When snow melted, we noticed a dead cat in the fence line. He had his head stuck in a peanut butter jar and evidently suffocated.

RE: Incredibly tasting Frozen No-bake berry cheese cake.

Mix in a bowl on medium speed: 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 tsp. almond extract 2 tsp. milk 8 oz carton frozen whipped topping Spread in a pre-made graham cracker pie crust. Open a can of cherry pie filling and stir in 1 tsp. almond extract. Spread this over the cream cheese mixture. The crust should have a clear protective cover so turn it upside down so it forms a dome over the dessert and chill. Substitute: blueberry pie filling and lemon extract 1 can pie filling is actually enough for 2 desserts.

RE: Poultry ban

We were through Customs 7 times in 2006 and each one was completely different. Example: one examined our hitch for what seemed like 10 minutes and the next Customs never even glanced at it.
