    Which do you prefer? I have a chest freezer now but I'm finding the older I get the more trouble I have reaching in and getting stuff. I'm also a shorty so that doesn't help. We are planning on building a new home in the next few months. I plan on having a large pantry off the kitchen big enough...

    We were looking for a deep freezer so we could order a half a cow and then we'll also have a bunch of deer meat this winter. Hubby and I looked thrrough our local bulletin board and found a 23 cubic foot one for 250. It's frost free. I talked the woman down to 200 bucks and we'll be picking...

    Ok, so it seems too obvious.... where to find excellent, interesting crockpot recipes? Why, the crockpot brand's own website of course!! Stumbled upon it today. It has hundreds of well organized, delicious sounding dishes that are a departure from the standard hunk-of-meat and packet of...

    I am on my blackberry so I apologize for any typos in advance. I need some advice. I have been having chest pain for the last few hours. It is on the left side above my breast and sometimes it radiates up my neck alittle and sometimes down my arm a little. I'm only 33 and have no medical probs...

  10. Financial hardship
    I need to get this off my chest. We didnt buy that house we had posted about previously - we could not afford a move. I think that made us feel down, that we couldnt have things we wanted etc. Not saying that the feeling was justified, but that I cant deny it wasn't there. At the same time...

    I could go on for days with bitches about our local county law enforcement, however last nights will suffice!! I was on my way out of town going to work, we have to clime a fairly steep long hill, not a problem until the moron in front of me goes from 55 to 35 at the top of the hill where...

    DH told me today that a co-worker would sell him her chest freezer for $50. I told him that would be awesome with as much as we've been stockpiling lately, so as soon as we get the downstairs playroom rug in and the furniture moved out of one section of the basement, we're going to get the chest...

    I found out the hard way! Saturday evening, I started having chest pain, but thought nothing of it. I figured it was indigestion and took a couple of tums. I was able to finally fall asleep only to wake up on Sunday with the same symptoms. The pain wasn't just in my chest. It was in my right arm...
  15. Question and Answer
    Just wondering if you think it's worth it to invest in a freezer for stockpiling frozen foods/meats. Two issues, the cost of buying it. Secondly, the cost of running it. What do you think?

    well... go to ER... it's fine though. Nothing cardiac. however, it sure got me thinking. I'm almost 40, I've been smoking for 25 years, and am now carrying around 100lbs extra. I'm not sure how it happened. I used to be very athletic. I've gotten back into ***********.com and starting...

    I've been losing sleep over this. When my Dad died, I flew up to PA for the funeral etc... My sister already had all of Mom and Dad's furniture, and everything else she wanted in her house, looking pretty. Okay, I know that I live 1400 miles away, and I didn't even went anything that she...

    Did my dd's chest of drawers while she away with 4H for four days. I wish I had taken a before and after picture. It wasn't a perfect job but looks a whole lot better. I had to strip the old finsih off before I put the stain on and sealed it. It's not a fun task to do but rewarding to see the...

    What kind of person tells a four year old that nobody likes him. I live with the only family that has space and my son just came in crying from the living room because my uncle told him no one likes him. Yesterday my son followed this same uncle down to the basement (where my uncle spends the...
