  1. I bought these over the summer and I'm pretty happy with them. I used them while jogging and they stayed in: https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Boltune-Bluetooth-Waterproof-Headphones/dp/B07RDLBHGC/ref=pd_rhf_ee_s_rp_c_2_0_4/141-9215998-4459609?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07RDLBHGC&pd_rd_r=843060d8-000d-40c0-98e8-f2fa9eaff57b&pd_rd_w=XjY5J&pd_rd_wg=Afg08&pf_rd_p=eedb2e0a-dc98-41ea-a87a-c2ba640d1762&pf_rd_r=QN510JBY6MM91VAW1XYF&psc=1&refRID=QN510JBY6MM91VAW1XYF
  2. #teambagatthecar - except for a few situations where paying the bag fee was worth the convenience. While I appreciate the Aldi bagging area or the outdoor tables under canopies area my local TJ's set up, I would rather bag my groceries away from others and with more air exposure. Most stores here won't bag into re-useable bags, so I just bag my stuff outside by my vehicle (weather permitting).
  3. Generally, I don't but my work is planning to open back up to the public soon. I work in a large, urban setting, so I figured if ever there was a year to do it, it's this one. I wasn't too happy when I was given one 3 years ago during an ER visit that I don't recall being asked about first and only noticed upon reading my discharge papers a day or two later (I probably would have skipped it because it was March and I don't live in a cold climate.) Dh will probably skip it. Youngest ds will be getting one next week.
  4. No kidding! Could I be added to the PM train? OP- sorry to hear about your experience.
  5. Hot spot location here. I had to rush my dh to the ER in the early morning hours about 2 weeks ago. Everything was set up outside for intake. We had our temps checked and had to be masked. There was only one entry point for the ER and they had a security guard out front with the nurses. I got the impression I wouldn't have been allowed to push his wheelchair in, but dh's responses to some question demonstrated his confusion at that point. I was allowed in so I could speak to the nurse while he took his vitals. Once that was done, I was asked to leave and told I could call the posted phone
  6. In case anyone is curious about the current project of studying quarantining time frames and types of library materials, you can view the updates and studies at https://www.webjunction.org/explore-topics/COVID-19-research-project.html.
  7. School Library Journal is currently free to view online: https://www.slj.com/ There are instructions on the page on how to access this month's issue. Diversity in books has been a hot topic of late and there might be some lists of reviewed books that will help. Their starred reviews are usually good bets if you have limited funds to work with.
  8. Looks like it's online learning for the CA counties on the Governor's List. https://abc7.com/education/live-newsom-announces-which-ca-school-district-can-reopen-this-fall/6321702/
  9. Yup. Used to try to sneak that onto my morning oatmeal instead of just cinnamon as a kid. As a breakfast treat, my mom would make toast with it. When we didn't have it pre-mixed, we'd do it ourselves. In my high school and early college years I moved to using it with butter on tortillas.
  10. I was shocked to see this last night, too. I had to read the headline a few times to let it sink it. According to The Hollywood Reporter (and now a few other places like People Magazine): "Imahara died suddenly following a brain aneurysm, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. "We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Grant." https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/grant-imahara-dead-mythbusters-host-was-49-1303101
  11. Rubbing alcohol. I can't find it anywhere. Otherwise, it varies from week to week. Sometimes it's something like frozen pizzas, the next it will be a limited selection of pasta sauce brands. I wanted to get one this year, too. I figured that if we were going to mostly be home as is, then it would give the youngest something to do other than a water slide or playing in the sprinkler. I'm kicking myself for not taking better care of the one we had in the past.
  12. That's pretty much how it is at my work place. We've been doing this since the closures in Mid-March. In the last few weeks, temperature checks were required. We have hand sanitizers distributed throughout the building for staff and encourage hand washings through out the day. Masks are required in all common areas and hallways. Since we're closed to the public, all doors to staff-only areas are propped open so we don't have to touch multiple surfaces.
  13. I have been waiting. I was considering taking myself for my bday this year, but then Covid happened. 🙄 You best not log in all at once, I don't want to see this.... *LOL*
