  1. Our kid has been accepted at Brevard College (Brevard, NC). The college is small and is connected with the summer program at Brevard Music Center (somewhat comparable to Interlochen in Michigan). He'll be a Music Major (in both jazz drumming and voice) and a Theatre Minor. We're waiting now for the financial proposals.
  2. Did you know you can use the green carrot tops to make pesto? Carrot Top Pesto There are other recipes for carrot top pesto if you google.
  3. I've found that doing things in the community (food banks come to mind) helps a lot. As well as helping out neighbors and building community... On a family level, we grow some of our veggies year round, keep a stocked pantry, and try to stay healthy.
  4. Economic issues. Covid mutations. Extreme weather events.
  5. We've been in several CSAs during the last 25 years. We finally realized that we wasted too much of the CSA and were better off going to our local farmer at their farm stand or their stand at our local farmers' market on a weekly basis. That way we could still support our farmer.
  6. Yes. Episcopalian. At this point, only 25 people or fewer can attend in person. Mask wearing is required. One soloist, No congregational singing. Social distancing. Online option.
  7. Pizza herbs, Justice, Various poultry blends,
  8. Food pantries/banks will help you cut down on grocery expenses. Don't make the mistake of being too embarrassed to use them. We had to use them in 2020 due to pandemic-related loss of income. You are not alone. Along with the food pantry, there are other resources to help with medical bills, dentist clinic, utilities, etc.
  9. Holiday Inn Flubber Step Dogs Gus (w/ Don Knotts) The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (Don Knotts)
  10. You have to have a minimum of 50 posts before you can sell here. There is a sub-forum that is dedicated to selling.
  11. At the risk of dating myself, Bewitched.
  12. Ditto. I recently had an in-hospital overnight at the sleep clinic. I felt totally safe. Our local hospital is taking every precaution.
  13. I had this as well. Stage 1A endometrial cancer. I had a hysterectomy and oopherectomy (ovaries); didn't need radiation or chemo. I'm fine now. Re biopsy: do it under anesthesia! (actually, conscious sedation)
