RE: Rock Hounds or beach glass hunters

Be careful, it is addictive. There are books that can help you both as to what the rocks look like and where to find them. Yesterday my husband looked at my window sill full of rocks and wondered if we will come back with as many this year and where will we put them.Luckily we both pick them up.

RE: Where to camp in Yellowstone July 2016

We stayed at Indian Bridge and whatever the other one is for tents and liked both We have stayed at two of the campgrounds that do not have electricity and enjoyed both. Even in mid September the one that was open filled up by noon. We camped the night before in a NF campground close to the park.

RE: Campfire stories

We stayed in a hotel that was investigated later by ghost hunters. I heard nothing and did not watch the show altho I knew it was on. Ghosts also seen at the local state park we go to but have not seen any there either. MIL was a believer. Not me.

RE: Pumpkin ideas wanted (non-dessert)

Just remembered seeing a recipe for mashed pumpkin made to take the place of mashed potatoes. I think the recipe which I read had butter and a beaten egg in it. Was than piled in serving side piles on a cookie tray and baked in an oven. I saved the recipe for several years and than tossed it.

RE: Pumpkin ideas wanted (non-dessert)

I have been wondering how pumpkin french fries would taste. Not wondering enough to make them but enough to think about it. It would take a fresh pumpkin of course.

RE: What are you reading?

I have been reading books on WWI. Everything from memoirs to history. I picked most of them up at garage sales or rummage sales very cheaply, knowing that sooner or latter I would want to read about the topic. I am on my fifth WWI book now and if that is not enough I might have to buy some new ones.

RE: Lady bug problem

I was not aware of it until now but we did not have any this year either in the house or in the TT. I sprayed for ants in the TT but I do not think that would have discouraged them.

RE: Thanksgiving

We raised a woodchuck as a house pet for over a year. He could chuck wood until he founds what he was looking for under it. He could count to two because he knew a peanut had two peanuts in the shell. He was disgusted when he got one with only one peanut and looked and looked for the other one. Never found the third peanut when he got one that had three in it. No shopping Thanksgiving or the day after.

RE: How many sides are too many?

If there are many picky children she should add mac and cheese. We will be two this year and we have almost everything you are for six except the Jello and one pie.

RE: electric blankets, $50, $150, $250, $$$$??

We did not buy ours until winter sales were on. If you want it for this winter that will not work for you. We tried the mattress pad and did not like it.

RE: Four Season bunkhouse Travel Trailers

Visited friends in their park model with the temperatures at seven degrees. It kept warm. I do not know what their heating bills were.

RE: Pushing the season.

We have gone at Thanksgiving several times, once in a tent but the last time cold weather arrived which we could handle but snow and ice followed right after our trip and we could not cover the TT for the winter. There were never days in a row for it to dry off before we covered it. Now we cover it a little earlier. And nothing happened when it was not covered but husband worried because we were gone all winter.

RE: Home clothes dryer buzzer

I bought three timers, set one in the family room, one in the living room and one in the kitchen. Husband has one in the office. I know with three set I will hear at least one and he does also.

RE: Tree limb vs Roof, Tree wins

We had the same thing happen just over a year ago, taking out both the roof and the awning. Insurance paid for both. When you get it back hose, the roof down very well to make sure you have no leaks.

RE: Snowy White Owls experiencing difficulty

During the summer we used to see Snowy Owls in the evening when we went out for a drive. Have not seen any in the same area for years. Because they are gone or because our eyes are older.

RE: Jack knife sofa

I have not tried this but read here that someone slit a swimming noodle down the cent and laid the pieces in the crack. Than place an air mattress, foam mattress or sleeping bag over it and you cannot tell it is there. It sounds like it might work.

RE: What radio stations

NPR or Sirius.

RE: Electric heater vs using furnace in fall?

We like to sleep in a cold bedroom with an electric blanket on at night. Furnace comes on in the morning. If you like a warm bedroom at night, use the heater. It does not make noise when it turns on.
