    We ran across three big bunches of bananas marked down to .29/lb. today. That's really cheap for here. Usually bananas are .79/lb. and almost never on a close-out. So I need to make some banana bread again and maybe dehydrate some more banana chips. Then we found eggs for .90/dozen. They...

    My brother has been on my mind a lot lately. Tomorrow his 5 year old is having baptism. I have been feeling pretty sad he can't be there. I know he would have wanted to see his child do this. I have been sick the last few days and sleeping a ton. I woke up this morning still feeling horrid but...

    I never thought much about Justin Beiber, except that I heard he was a bit of a 'brat' (according to Marg Helgenberger) when he filmed a CSI episode. But maybe he's growing up...... I know you may say it was all for positive publicity, but I still think it was nice, especially to fly the...

    102.99 deposited into our checking account. It said class action lawsuit credit. I think it was contrary housewife(I think?) that posted a few months ago that they was getting sued for not legit over draft charges. We had a few through the years. Looks like they lost their lawsuit. I wonder how...

    A friend better off than I am had her KitchenAid break down. Her son, being a good son, went to the US and brought her back a new super duper model. She, meanwhile, was talking about taking hers in to get fixed. I told her if it was less than $100 to fix it, I'd buy it off her. So...as of...

    I have been slowly trying to upgrade clothing, shoes, purses, and bags, etc. These upgraded items to me makes them nicer than the other items I may have. So I put limits on when I can wear/use them. Such as not during a rainstorm for shoes or not when just around the house. Now I realize...

    Tooooo many employers don't get that the better they treat their employees the better the employee will work for them. AND kindness goes a long way in life in general.

    I've been thinking about a second camera to use for my job. We have an inexpensive one we bought a couple years ago that we really like. It does fine for my needs, but we've wanted another one so we can each have one when we're traveling, plus a back-up for work. At any rate, I was in a store...

Today for a total of $25, I found 3 very heavy Wool sweaters( I call them crunchy/granola/hippie...

    As some of you know, we moved into a new home last week. We are surrounded by boxes, can't find the tupperware or one of the checkbooks, the kitchen is a disaster - you know, the usual moving stuff. Not life-threatening, just a frustrating couple of weeks. My sister calls me (the one who got...

    As a lot of you know my BIL split up from his 3rd wife not so long ago. For the first time in YEARS, we will be having a family party/brunch on Feb 21st for my parents in law. This was unthinkable with 3rd ex-wife in the picture (apart from the fact that not many people got on with her - she...

    It's New Year's Day, and like any good southerners, we are having black-eyed peas today. But unlike most southerners, I used canned peas this year - 2 cans of Trappey's brand at .50 each. When I opened them and then threw the cans in the trash (no recycling available for those in our area), I...

I have to be quite honest with you, when they said that they were going to get...

    We live on a one lane dirt lane. In WV they had a program several years ago where the state highway dept. would "adopt" little roads like ours. You had to have so many people who owned property and or lived on the road and you had to deed over 10 feet of your property on each side of the road...
