RE: Cost of beef

In 2008, we were in Hawaii for 10 days and noticed many people had chicken coops and we figured out why when we saw the price of eggs and chicken in the grocery stores.

RE: Cost of beef

Put the corn back into feed and not ethanol.Use the glut of cheap and surplus oil,stop importing oil from off shore,use North american resources. Feeder cattle eat distillers grain (by product from making ethanol) and they love it. It's more nutritious than grain. That's using the grain twice.

RE: Stripping latex paint experience

If the oil wasn't prepped correctly the latex should just peal off with a plastic scraper. You can also prep the old oil paint with a product called"liquid sandpaper" OK. Thanks

RE: Stripping latex paint experience

If you would rather use latex, after stipping what was put on so you have a smooth surface again, paint a coat of Zinser sealant, then paint with latex. Thanks for that.

RE: Stripping latex paint experience

I've used Circa 1850 paint stripper. Its a bit messy, but it works. Just paint it on, and let it sit for a while before washing or scraping it off. Won't paint stripper eat into the oil paint ? I'm wanting to preserve the oil paint, and get rid of the latex topcoat.

Stripping latex paint experience

I have an old cupboard painted years ago with "hard as a rock" oil paint then someone made the big mistake of painting over that with latex. The latex is peeling - no surprise. What should I use to get all the latex off so I can prepare it and recoat with oil again ? I'd like your advice if you've done this successfully. Thanks in advance.

RE: Unbroken......the movie.

I understand Jolie "softened" his story thinking this way it can be seen by youngsters. Each day gets us farther from these times and the world forgets so I'm glad for the young people to be informed.

RE: Flu

A perfectly healthy 40 year old man died from flu complications in our area this week. He was a school guidance counselor. Not yet heard if he had a flu shot.

RE: Nature owl question

We listened to a Ranger talk on owls. She said they hatch 1 chick at a time so when you see cartoon pictures of young owls of graduated sizes on a tree branch, that is how it is. Now, are you ready for this: when the male is unsuccessful in hunting for food to feed the family, he takes the smallest and feeds it to the older ones. The Ranger also said small dog or cat collars have been found in owl nests. Thanks for sharing your incredible photo.

RE: Before pulling out...

I keep a typed checklist in a plastic sleeve to protect it. We just review it together before moving and we're good to go. Whatever works for you.

RE: Dishes for the motorhome

Our corelle is about 25 years old. Use it daily. Of course it's been dropped, but never broken anything.

RE: Going back to cash

I get a check on the 16th of the month and cash it. Groceries, haircut, household incidentals are all paid with cash. When the cash runs low, I spend less until the next check comes, so in my case, I spend less when I use cash. no you spend less because you are broke. its a good thing you don't have a cc at least you can't go past 0 i have made thousands on reward cards. never paid a dime in interest. Not broke, just pretend I'm broke for my own good. I actually have 5 months of uncashed checks because I make the monthly cash stretch. Everyone has their own method, I guess.

RE: Saving $5.00 Bills

We had a lady come in and do light housekeeping but she retired, so I do it myself and I continue to write her a "fake check". I color my own hair, so I write a "fake check" for it. We do our own lawn work, so I write a "fake check". I use green ink for them. I keep a running balance of these "fake checks" on the left hand of the check book in green ink. When I balance the checkbook (yes, I still do this monthly) the bank and our balance is off exactly the amount of "fake checks". If we do these household chores ourselves to save money, then we actually need to save the money. It counts up and it's "found money" at our house.

RE: Tuna Burgers...

We used to mix tuna with chopped celery, onion, shredded cheese. Spread on hamburger bun, wrap in foil and heat up in oven. Instead of shredded cheese, a slice of cheese can be used.

RE: Corn Flake Chicken Recipes

This was a easy favorite of our kids when they were at home: 2 shallow bowls needed. Crushed up saltine crackers in one and place 1/2 cup melted butter in the other. Dip chicken pieces in butter then roll in cracker crumbs. Place on cookie sheet with sides. If there's any butter left, it can be poured over the pieces. Bake 325 until done or about an hour. I've gotten to be a big fan of parchment paper since then, so if I made it today, I'd line the pan with it first. BTW, they named it "Crispy Chicken". Corn flakes could be easily used instead of crackers.
