  1. Came upon this while browsing on Amazon:
  2. I didn't get to see it but I'm hoping someone remembered to record it. I heard a lot of people talking favorably about it tonight while I was out.
  3. I really want a pair of these so that I can listen to audiobooks comfortably in bed: I also would love this: I wouldn't say no to a newer fitbit, either a smart watch or one with a heart monitor. A few cases of Nutpods would be wonderful also.
  4. Wow, that's scary! Glad she's on the mend!
  5. My brother came over today and found some issues with corrosion most likely caused by a water issue we had. He spent a good amount of time checking things over and making repairs, etc, plus we got to visit for a while, which was nice. I feel much safer now!
  6. I'm wondering if the circuit was trying to trip and couldn't for whatever reason. I had a heater running but turned it off for the night, and I haven't heard the noise since then. I'm going to wait another 30 minutes or so and see if it happens. I couldn't find any electricians available, so hopefully it is ok to wait for morning.
  7. It sounds kind of like a breaker is tripping, but none have. It took me a while to figure out where the noise was coming from, and now I'm worried that it may be a fire hazard. Why do these things happen on holidays late at night? Does anyone know if this is something I should worry about, like try to find someone tonight even though I'm kind of broke? I texted my brother, who is an electrician, but I haven't heard from him.
  8. I love when someone links a recipe that looks amazing and I actually have all of the ingredients! This is going to be my dinner tonight. Thanks!
  9. Would you please share the recipe for this? It sounds wonderful!
  10. We purchased some small LED lanterns on Prime Day from Etekcity: So far they seem to work great. We store them with the batteries out. I have these on my wishlist: After Sandy, we bought 2 of those dreaded kerosene heaters that I hated from my childhood. We use Klean Heat and always light it on our front porch and carefully bring it inside, so they are not as smelly as they were when I was young. We can heat the whole house with one heater and two gallons of Klean Heat a day on a very cold day if we have to. We've used it about 4 times since then and have a one month supply of fuel.
  11. I've heard of using it to reduce the length of colds, but not as an expectorant, which is what I would be using. I would try this: Take with a large glass of water (this is vital imho) and stay hydrated. I also like to drink tea with manuka honey, especially if my throat is irritated from coughing so much. She should definitely get a humidifier if she hasn't already, and keep it clean. It can sometimes take a while for the cough from bronchitis to go away, but if there is still a lot of mucus, make sure it hasn't transitioned to pneumonia. Hope she feels better! ETA: I printed this recipe out to try, but I keep forgetting to try it:
  12. I don't have an Aldi near me.? I did see a very nice wine Advent calendar online, but I can't remember where. I need a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free calendar filled with goodies!
  13. Shingles is no fun! I am happy to have gotten it out of the way in high school, but someone told me the other day that it's possible to get it more than once. I really hope that's not true!!! Feel better!
  14. Don't know the history or backstory at all, but just in case it may be relevant, my father, while in rehab after a lengthy hospital stay for open heart surgery that went bad, ended up suddenly suicidal. This was very out of character for him. It ended up being a medication combo. I don't remember the medications involved (we are going back quite a few years), but they did write his case up in a medical journal. It was very scary!! Sending prayers to you and your mom.
  15. 4# roast seems not enough. I would double that at least, if you can't, maybe do a batch of sloppy joe's or pulled pork along with it. We've been having great sales on ground beef lately.
