  1. At my crazy house our normal was drum set, bass guitar, and flute. It was the piccolo that drove me to noise cancelling headphones to take the edge off. I was their biggest fan so they were always a little offended when I reached for the headphones.
  2. Including schools. The drinking fountains are covered and kids bring water bottles and refill at school if needed.
  3. I have some ugly dishtowels that it's time to rotate out too I love these Williams Sonoma classic stripe towels--they really hold up. https://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/williams-sonoma-striped-towels/?catalogId=79&sku=9909786&cm_ven=PLA&cm_cat=Google&cm_pla=Homekeeping > Kitchen Towels&region_id=666920&cm_ite=9909786&gclid=CjwKCAjwj8eJBhA5EiwAg3z0m8OaFzhXk3ZL06AXpIN_tZC23-eL7Hb6O4HJHHZBplI0RpBGnJ5oORoC01wQAvD_BwE I bought one of these digital clocks. I think it's pretty funny that it's advertised for the elderly because I put it in my classroom below the analog clock. I was tired of my 12 year old students pulling out their cell phones to check time. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077TRCXSD/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  4. Ask any teacher who was teaching in person all last year in a fully masked building if masks work. Literally no illnesses spread through our buildings last year. No strep, influenza, norovirus, colds, bronchitis, etc.
  5. Mine appreciated this super fast phone /device charger for when they were short on time. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IUTIUEA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. The candy aisle at Walmart was almost completely wiped out. But the Walgreens aisle was fully stocked.
  7. I have sensitive skin and I can use Neutrogena, but I have to reapply frequently.
  8. We love these Cheddar Chive Biscuits and I'm sure you could substitute scallions. (Note: I usually grate the butter and add it the usual way instead of using the method because I'm starting with powdered milk.) https://thecafesucrefarine.com/easy-cheddar-chive-biscuits/
  9. Double masking. https://www.ama-assn.org/delivering-care/public-health/what-doctors-wish-patients-knew-about-double-masking Adding more layers of material to a mask or wearing two masks reduces the number of respiratory droplets containing the virus that come through the mask. If one person is using a cloth mask over a surgical mask while the other person is not, it has been shown to block 85.4% of cough particles, says the JAMA Health Forum article, “CDC Studies Underscore Continued Importance of Masks to Prevent Coronavirus Spread.” When both people are double masking, potentially infectious aerosols decrease by 95%.
  10. Thanks for this info. DD has been driving my mom's old Toyota Corolla in her final years of college and it has almost 300,000 miles on it. She'd planned to buy this summer but since it's in running condition she'll probably hang on. At least with the pandemic she won't be travelling for work like she normally would be.
  11. I have an 8 year old Whirlpool Duet that I've never loved and I just talked to my husband about replacing it. We've never replaced an appliance that wasn't broken or at least limping along before, but I'm thinking to go for it under the circumstances.
  12. Homemade chicken broth and decaf tea for me.
  13. My first set was a 1987 Maytag washer and dryer. The dryer is still going strong, with a few minor repairs. We're on our 4th washer and it's had a number of repairs.
  14. Same here! I have a GE glass cooktop and I've found it to be a huge pain to clean. I was using a 1970's Tappan coil top range previously and it was a cinch to just wipe off. Everything on this takes scrubbing, even with the cleaner. I like the different sized burners and more even heat, but it's more work to maintain.
  15. Vaseline with cocoa butter https://www.walmart.com/ip/Vaseline-Petroleum-Jelly-Cocoa-Butter-7-5-oz/17018186
