Do you use a Butter Bell ?

Want to get a butter bell. Tremain seems to be "the brand" to get? What do you have? Some say butter will keep for a month, some say 5 days. All work on same principal, so why the difference? Thanks for owner input.

RE: Dirty Silverware at a Restaurant. What would you do?

I'd most likely ask to see a shift manager, show it to them and tell him/her this is why we're not staying. Thank you very much.

Handy shoelaces

Shoelaces can be handy for camping. I tie cupboard handles together with a leather shoelace to keep them closed while moving. I left the sensor for our indoor/outdoor thermometer at a campground when I laid it aside before leaving, we had To order a replacement. Now I use a shoelace to tie it in plain sight to the hand bar. From now on, when we ditch an old pair of shoes, I will probably wash up the laces, if they're good, and store them away for future camping uses.

RE: We have no heat

Gas water heater gave up Christmas morning. Family had been here the week before, so we were lucky there, but we did have two young house guests. HVAC man came, it was to be replaced and we'd get it as soon as possible. Monday was a Holiday, others were ahead of us until Wed, so we did the best and I remembered Mom putting water on to heat before we sat up to eat, then water was hot to do dishes so we did that. Also found her 30 cup non elec coffee pot and heated water for the bath tub. We had sewer, lights, heat, cold water so we were just fine and our guests didn't mind at all, they go tent camping a lot so all ok. And if we really needed a hot shower, we could have imposed on any of our good neighbors. Water heaters have really gotten expensive, let me warn you !

RE: Annoying phone calls

I'm Scandinavian so when these pests call, I get into my foreign language mode. They ask me to get someone who speaks English and I'm smiling on the other end. Pretty soon they hang up, hopefully they flag my number "do not call".

RE: Annoying phone calls

I am sick of them too, not on my cell (mine still has a dial:) I answer the home phone "Good morning/ afternoon Holmes county sheriffs office LT BLAH, fraud division, may I assist you" most calls have stopped here at home. Funny!

RE: What To Do With the Sticks & Bricks

Your list covers everything I did last year, only issue was our local post office folks are pretty bad, took almost 2 weeks after the date I asked for mail forwarding before it actually took place. Good thing my son stopped by the house and picked it up every few days till it stopped. It was supposed to go to his house cross town. Going to start the forward 2 weeks before we leave this year, which reminds me, that's next week. Add: Changed all bills that can use autopay to autopay, stopped by the town hall and prepaid any bills from them that come in. Had the oil tanks filled. Put a bunch of cash in the checking for autopay. Local post office people have nothing to do with forwarding mail these days. it's completely out of their hands and handled by a forwarding office. Depending on management at Forwarding, they can be good . . . or horrible. All local PO ppl do is have you fill out a forwarding card, then turn it in to Forwarding, wherever that may be. We have good luck and no problems so we are fortunate.

RE: I can finally take a shower without dropping the soap

Great idea. Good for holding the bottles in place. I gave up using bar soap a few years ago due to the mess it can create after is sits in a soap dish or a damp hidey-hole in the shower. gooey soap, nasty. I take all soap wrappers off as soon as I get home. Keep it in a basket and it dries out. Lathers up exactly the same, but never gooey and soft. Been doing this for years with success.

RE: What do you do if you find money...?

I noticed about 200.00 cash (which was folded together) missing while at Target Customer Service counter. I had just come from a check out and I was positive it was in my purse there. I muttered it to the employee and said I'll be right back. Didn't see it on the floor at check out so returned to Customer Service to discover it dropped at CS and the next Customer picked it up and they were waiting for me. I was quite flustered, and this had never happened to me before so I thanked them both and left. Now when I think about it, I am embarrassed because I should've been thinking and given the finder 20.00

RE: Coffee

Now for bad coffee. Drug store chain in this area has coffee and donuts once a month for Sr Citizens. Coffee is made is 30 cup aluminum pot and it's HORRID. Cheap cake donuts must be a week old. They get a crowd, because it's free.

RE: What are you reading?

Found in Dad's things: All Hell Broke Loose by Wm H. Hull. It's about Armistice Day blizzard 1940. Looking out the window today, it's appropriate!

RE: Things for the new travel trailer

Get an electric blanket! They are marvelous in a camper! My advise to everyone who is getting a new camper and beginning to stock it.... don't forget the potato peeler. (really)! And the wine cork screw! We have electric mattress cover. Like it, but can't compare to elec blanket because we've never had one.

RE: Jury Duty ?

OP here. No way am I ignoring it. I have copy of my January deposit ready and will work with them, so I hope they can work with me. Thank you for all replies. Clerk didn't hesitate a second when I told her we are Snowbirds. Immediately gave me a written excuse and wished us a great winter. Security staff was more than cordial as we passed through the scan machine. My worry was for nothing!

RE: Coffee

Tried many. We are on Maxwell House kick now. After a while our taste buds will need a change.
