  1. Here are some “little luxuries” that I’ve enjoyed over the years: Bombas footie socks w/grippers Small purse size bottle of hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works - I like the fresh scents and they have yummy seasonal scents, too Micro pens for Bible Study Moleskine notebooks Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm (I found this just recently) personalized note cards - available online, shop around for good prices
  2. Michael’s has a category on their website for gifts under $10. It includes some craft kits & other items they might like.
  3. I've picked up from a few of those restaurants. In theory they are wearing masks & gloves. Consistency and proper donning of them is questionable - lots of exposed noses, masks pulled down entirely. Those are the places I haven't gone back to. Food service kitchens are usually close quarters, too. Based on my experience, I don't know that restaurant prep is significantly safer. You have all given me something to think about, though.
  4. People in our area regularly do take out from restaurants now. I think that it’s less likely someone will pick up Covid from a home kitchen than from a restaurant kitchen. For that reason, I expect home made goods will be welcome around here. Of course, I could be wrong...
  5. Adults ranging in age between 40 - 80.
  6. I lead a Bible Study and we usually have a Christmas party when we break for the holiday. This year we have been meeting on zoom. I would like for us to get together for a virtual party, but I've never "been" to one and am not sure how to do this. I thought about having two questions ready for everyone to answer. Maybe their favorite holiday memory from their own childhood and something else. What, I am not sure. I am going to a virtual cocktail party in December and the hosts are sending a gift bag ahead of time with goodies for us to enjoy during the party. Does anyone have ideas o
  7. You might like the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balm. They are smooth and moisturizing with a tint of color. You can purchase it at Ulta (in store or online) and use one of their store coupons. I am white with fair to medium skin tone, brown hair and brown eyes and I like the "fuller fig" color.
  8. I have asked my husband for some earrings to match a necklace I inherited from my mother. I trust him to pick them out or have them made.
  9. What makes them amazing?
  10. Thank you. We had it restored early this year. There were no furniture company tags on it. They dated it to late 19th-early 20th century. The feet and the lions are hand carved. It had a lot of weak joints and the glass was wiggly in some places. The big thing was that someone along the way had painted it and the restoration guy had to remove the paint. This is what it looked like before - I took this picture before I emptied it at my moms house and had it shipped to mine.
  11. We pay people to do other things that benefit society by giving tax incentives for things like solar panels. Farmers get paid to plant or not plant certain things for economic purposes. Companies get benefits for creating jobs and get tax cuts for opening new offices or building new manufacturing plants that hire a certain number of people. I don’t think this would really be any different.
  12. I received this one after my mother died. It came to her from my father’s aunt. We don’t know where it was before that.
  13. Three main ideas: Recognize other people are people and that is the basis for treating each other well. Make exercising decorum/good manners the norm again. It is the basis of respectful dialogue. Emily Post should be mandatory reading. Don't expect one institution to solve complicated problems. It takes a variety of viewpoints, experiences and a lot of resources to solve complicated problems. Work together - realize the strengths different approaches have and promote those. Learn where the holes are and strive to fill them. Be flexible. We need to intentionally build local comm
  14. Let me know if you have any questions as you go along, I'll be glad to help. It's a great way to study. The "How to Use..." section in the intro to the Bible is a good resource for learning how to study the Bible.
  15. I have been doing Precept Bible studies for 20+ years and I have had the Inductive Study Bible for about 10 years. It isn't needed to do the studies, but it has great chapter introductions, maps & charts. I also like that the text isn't in columns - it reads straight across the page & the margins are wider than in typical Bibles for notes. I also use the micron pens regularly. They don't bleed through the pages, but the darker colors are somewhat visible from the otherside - you can tell it's been marked but not distinguish what the marks are, if that makes sense. It doesn't bothe
