  3. Relationships
    I have officially decided I am old. I need to have something cleared up for me. You know, these young people keep changin' the rules and I am just an old stick in the mud. So if someone says that their relationship is "not serious" what does that mean? Back in my day, I assumed that it meant...
  4. Kitchen Basics
    Our friends had a corn roast party last night and it was so neat. They dug a little pit in their yard and started a fire. They threw the corn in with the husks on next to the logs and got them out with a shovel. They put them on, I guess like a big black cast iron pan and that is how they served...

    My weight has ballooned again, due mostly to a switch in medications. I need to lose at least 30 lbs. I'm attempting South Beach again. If my stomach starts bothering me like it did the last time, I will switch to Weight Watcher's old Core program. Core is a lot like SB, but a little less...

    We had high wind warnings out for our area yesterday. And it happens often, so often that a lot of times I don't really worry much about it. Well it taught me a lesson yesterday, my neighbor's barn roof ended up about 10 feet from my dining room window with boards flying through the air like...

    I just looked at my online Kroger ad...They have downsized the cases of Coke products to 20 cans from 24! What the heck?? And charging $5.99 as a "sale" price. Talk about the incredible shrinking product, that's ridiculous!
