  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    My neighbor is moving out today. He's just giving up on the mortgage. His wife left about 10 months ago and I'm guessing the cut in income hit him hard. Just wondering what the effects this will have on the rest of the neighborhood. Should we maintain the yard so the house doesn't look...

    when their son and/or stepson was involved in an accident. My dh and kids went out of town to pick up oldest ds' friend and coming back the "big" bridge was backed up with traffic at a standstill. There were five fire trucks present and a white pickup truck with a trailer hooked up to it over...
  3. Homesteading and gardening
    I want to get chickens, have for a while. I'm in an unincorporated area where we are allowed a few. I have neighbors relatively close. I can have chickens legally, I've checked all the statutes and everything, called city hall and the like to double check. TBH it's been a while since I was...

    Although I've been popping in and reading some, I haven't posted much in ages. Just wanted to check in and say howdy. Looks like you're all stayin' busy with penny pinchin' and looking for ways to make life better, easier and more peaceful. Still doing all the same ol' things that we've always...

    The reason I ask, is because new neighbors moved in over the weekend. So, dh and I walk over to introduce ourselves, after they got all moved in. She didn't even speak. All he had to say was to make sure our cat didn't go on his porch, and if our newly planted (on our property) shrubs get to...

    I feel so badly for them. I know they had been trying to sell it on and off for a few years. I didn't realize they needed out of it so badly. :( I always wondered why they built such a huge house. It was only the 2 of them. Looks like the bank has it for sale now. We didn't even know...

    Links That Last Since the modern Western lifestyle can isolate us from one another, it is often difficult to forge meaningful connections. Self-protection and mistrust prevent us from reaching out to neighbors and peers, and we consequently feel like we don’t truly belong anywhere. Yet creating...

    Our neighbor came over Monday night. He's cop and as soon as he came in, he said, "Is Andrew (DS#1) around? I have a proposition for you". I thought, "Oh, NO. Glen has found out Andrew did something bad." Well, nothing could be further from the truth! They have a '88 Grand Marquis of his...

    Happy Tuesday! Yeah I'm a little late but heck, it's never too late for happy LOL! Today at work was better. The boss didn't show up ROFL! I was up most of the night with my stomach so I worked until 1, then came home for a nap. We got up to snow on the ground this morning! Mid 70's on...

    We have neighbors who are pretty unfrugal. They don't use things up until they are no longer useful. When they get tired of something, they just buy a new one. But luckily for us, they are frugal minded. They know we are frugal and love freebies, so they always check with us before they toss...

    i know a thread like this was made maybe a year or two ago... but i wanted to ask if your neighbours have been acting a more or less social - due to the economic times. now the neighbours i have, well they keep to themselves. Of the dozens of neighbours we have, I think I know maybe 4 of their...

    I just had to share... Last night we get a phone call from the neighbors across the road from us. We've not spoken to them for at least 8 months ago when DH got onto the kids for coming across the road and getting into our chicken house uninvited. Anyhow.... she asks DH if we would be...

    Our neighbors are a really nice couple, 3 kids 12-17. They have had major issues and have existed on hopes and pipe dreams for as long as I have known them (about 10 years). Things have been coming to a head for a long time and I think they are on a downward spiral. The wife is sinking into...

    Today, AGAIN, I did not get my Sunday paper! This is about the 12th time in 4 months. I know the circulation dept must know my voice by now. The weird thing is, it's not every week, it's actually very random. I don't know my neighbors very well. They just moved in about 6 months ago. But we...

    So, I was out taking the laundry off the line and the cat was happily rolling in the mint outside the back door. I was thinking I should dry some for the neighbor gal who has a cat who is their *baby*, plus she took in the cat that some neighbors left behind when they moved :kitty: I decided to...

    that have reverted. Our yard has been covered in cotton for starting the 2nd week now. Looks like it's snowing out the front door, no joke. When you go out and come in, you bring it in on your shoes. My allergies are really kicking up......:( I'm sure they think it's comical that the wind is...
