  1. Yeah, lol. I’ve got one for being a newbie in 2010, and just earned my “one year in” badge today, apparently?? Im on another board that uses this software and I’ve suddenly been earning badges there too. Ok, whatever.
  2. No way. I'd tell him that's not a service you provide and direct him to call a pest control company. If he's hoarding to the point that he has a vermin problem, the entire house may be a biohazard situation. I would consider whether this is worth the money. And I too think you could do better. . . I was paying my regular housecleaner about $25/hour and that was a few years ago. People are always looking for someone who is trustworthy and does a thorough job.
  3. I really like Kristan Higgins. There is some language but it’s not excessive. TeA mentioned but not explicitly described. She has a couple of series that involve different characters in a community. Some of her newer stuff is less “vacation read” and deals with some heavier topics, but I’ve loved all her books so far. I haven’t yet read the newest that just came out this month. Also seconding Erin Hilderbrand if you’re looking for light, fun vacation reads. Although I did not love her Christmas series.
  4. Funny, I would have defined it as any number divisible by two that results in whole integers. But her reasoning makes sense to me too!
  5. Did you get some bids? You may be able to put the house up for sale with an included “allowance” for the buyer to have the door replaced on their own time. Especially in this market, buyers may be open to that because houses are moving so fast.
  6. Ok that doesn’t look too bad, thanks. Have you driven it yourself?
  7. I am possibly looking at driving from Pocatello to Klamath Falls this summer. It looks like the drive from Pocatello to Boise is pretty straightforward, but the recommended route (Hwy 20) from the Boise metro to Klamath Falls looks like it could be pretty desolate and winding. Has anyone driven this route before who could give me more information?
  8. Caramel Chex 8 C cereal 1 C brown sugar ¼ C light Karo syrup ½ tsp salt ½ C real butter, cut into smaller pieces ½ tsp baking soda 1 tsp vanilla MnMs (optional) 1. Place cereal into a large microwave-safe bowl. 2. Combine brown sugar, Karo syrup salt, and butter into another large microwave-safe bowl (this will double in volume during cooking—make sure it is big enough). Microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Microwave for 2 minutes, stir. Microwave for another 2 minutes. Stir in baking soda and vanilla. Pour over cereal and stir to combine. 3. Place the bowl containing the cereal mixture into the microwave. Microwave for 3-5 minutes, stirring every minute, until the mixture starts to brown slightly. Spread on parchment paper or buttered cookie sheets to cool. Stir in MnMs if desired. Store in a covered container. *You can also use this mixture for caramel corn. Put it over 12 cups popcorn (if you’re using salted microwave popcorn, leave the salt out of the caramel mixture), and skip step 3. This makes a soft caramel corn. If you want it crunchy, spread it on two buttered cookie sheets and bake at 200ºF for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  9. We went last summer for a day trip. It was a weekday in June and it was pretty quiet (height of Covid). We drove from Pocatello, ID to the west entrance and went through the park to the south entrance, then drove back to Pocatello by way of Jackson, WY. The drive through the Tetons alone was worth it. Stunningly beautiful.
  10. Speed Queen washer Breville toaster oven Papermate Pink eraser caps I’d heard about menstrual cups before I came here, but this board convinced me to give them another try. The advice to flip them smooth-side out was life-changing.
  11. I was thinking his eyes look slightly bigger/more open in the older pics; like they’re less hooded? If that makes sense.
  12. You can go into their contact file on your phone and see if you're sharing your location with them. Scroll all the way down to the bottom. Just above the option to block the caller, you'll see a bar that either says "Share My Location" or "Stop Sharing My Location". Just a caveat, if you have been sharing, they will get a notice on their phone when you stop sharing your location with them. The microphone thing could be related to Siri. If you've got Siri set to "Hey Siri", it's sort of listening all the time. Which is why mine is off 😄 But that microphone signal I think is a fairly new feature from a recent update. It's to help you know which apps are using your microphone. Part of Apple's campaign to increase awareness about when your information is being collected.
