    124 Day 23 I had to send a check to the contractor who is building the addition on the cottage so that meant going to the Fed Ex store. So according to their website there is a store at the local Walgreen's so off I go, there is a button to press to ring for service. So how do I press the button without touching it? I dug out a pen and use the tip to press the button but it turned out that the store is only for pick-up. When I got to the Fed Ex store the line was out the door and down the sidewalk but there was only six people in line and they were 10 feet apart. So my exciting adventure for the day was over and I went home to sit out on the deck to read.

    For anyone who wants to make this cake or any cream cheese frosting--You can make powdered sugar with regular granulated sweetener(I use Splenda) by whirling it a nut grinder or blender. Wait until it settles after blending before you remove the lid or you'll have a a cloud of sugar all over. I've used this method often when a recipe calls for powdered sugar as I can never find powdered sweetener in the stores. It's probably cheaper too

    Coronavirus

    adiantum Posted 2 hours ago Someone must be concerned the economy will be so greatly affected --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Governments around the world have pledged financial support for all business impacted by the coronavirus, once the virus is all over, I kid you not, this money has to be paid back. I see inflation and recession on the horizon, and no one else but the Taxpayer has to pay back all this money borrowed to prop-up the coronavirus. You most likely will see interest rate rises, from all government, an increase to groceries in the shops i.e. clothing and the list goes on, even all smaller inessential things, even your energy bills. Global markets and businesses not recovering probably as anticipated. I could see the coronavirus crisis may lead to a new way of economic thinking, fewer jobs and businesses.

    Hammer, Ive found I had to get the lime beyond the soil surface. I use a fork & allow the lime to get down deep. Most of our lawn grasses grow by runners which I transplant to get a quick result , but I think yours are tussock type. I dont understand your climate but allow Spring to warm the soil for those seeds to germinate... unless birds etc have fasted upon them over winter.

    Someone must be concerned the economy will be so greatly affected that theyre increasing their security. Locksmiths are overwhelmed with the new demands for cameras & deadlocks. We have an excellent police force to take care of looters. It's the High Court of Australia that I have no respect for when they can overturn a jury's guilty verdict .

    Crikey ... you are more generous then me. A friend was feeling down with the blues on a cold wet day. I shopped online for a care package to have sent to her... A blue fake mink blanket, 2 velvet cushions & a bowl of fake flowers . She can snuggle up with a book or movie knowing I care. If those cushions came in green or red , I would buy them for me. I love velvet.

    My friend, the woman that I lent my Dodge Durango SUV to for 4 months last year, knew that I was getting low on toilet paper, since all of the stores are out of it, so she found a store near where she works, and picked me up 2 packs of it. The packs she picked up are mega-rolls, meaning that they are 4 times the size of regular rolls, so the two 12 packs of rolls that she picked up are equivalent to 96 regular rolls. That should last until the stores start getting more toilet paper on their shelves. I guess my friend wanted to do something nice for me, since I am buying her 4 cases of liquor. The liquor stores are all closed here in my state, but they aren't in a neighboring state, so I called up my favorite liquor store down there, and ordered the 4 items that she wanted....Sandeman Fine Ruby Porto....Tuaca Vanilla Citrus Liqueur....Captain Morgan Private Stock, and Grey Goose Vodka. The liquor store had to order these since they don't carry a lot of those in stock, and since I wanted a case of each, they didn't have that much in their stock. I should have them sometime this week, so once I get them, I can swap them out for the toilet paper....oh, and she said that once the restaurants re-open, she'll treat me to a bunch of dinners to thank me for the booze.

    An 84 (4.67) today. I needed to swap out my snowblower attachment for my mowing deck on my tractor, and today was the first nice day we've had, so I went ahead and did that. I hate doing that! It kills my back! It took a while, but I eventually got it swapped out, then I went ahead and cut the grass for the first time this year, and yes, I ache all over. Last year, I tested my soil, and it was acidic, so I bought a bag of pelletized lime and a battery powered broadcast spread, and put a good bit of the lime on the bare spots on my lawn in early Autumn. I waited about a month after we had several good rainfalls, then went out and spread some EZ Seed on the bare spots. As I expected, not one blade of grass grew in the bare spots this year. I give up!
  15. TX_Clint Can I come over? NO, but how about the recipe, please

    For a really nice hot ginger drink , shave about 6 thin slices of the ginger root with a little stevia steeped in hot water.

    Pay attention to those labels. This has about 13 carbs per serving of 2 to 3 tsp and those carbs are 12g of sugar. That would spike me bad also.
  27. Did anyone try the Honey Citron and Ginger Tea from Costco. I thought it is good for health, but when I checked my sugar 30 mins after taking one glass of this with one and half dinner spoons of the Tea mix, my BG shot from 90 to 200.
