  1. Yes, the inside is yellow and it's pro. I didn't see anything other than pro on the website. They had solid colors, which I bought, and patterned but all say pro.
  2. I've been pm'd and am now up to date. I just want to say how sorry I am that this happened to you. Your Covid threads and posts within other Covid threads were very helpful and informative.
  3. It's hard to describe. It almost seems like it's either a fabric smell or they coated the fabric in something.
  4. ...and I really like it. I like the fit, the look, the adjustable ear straps (though I have other masks with those) and the fact that a filter is built in. But it has a weird odor that I can't quite describe. I don't know if it's the material, the filter, or something else. Has anyone else experienced this with a Happy Mask? Is it something that will go away with time or after it gets washed? It's not unbearable but it's definitely noticeable and weird.
  5. Well, you also have idiot governors like mine. Public schools have been open for more than a month because he required them to offer in person classes. Most also have online options but there are still plenty of students going to school and plenty of schools then closing due to someone testing positive. He made a sudden announcement yesterday that restaurants can now open to 100% capacity, catching even restaurant owners by surprise. He allowed bars to open last week. And he decreed that colleges and universities cannot punish students who have parties and other large gatherings. I didn't read
  6. I think there's a possibility flu rates will go down for the following reasons: --Mask wearing. Even where everyone isn't wearing masks and many aren't wearing them correctly I think there is enough proper mask wearing to affect flu transmission. --Hand washing. People are washing their hands the way they should have been doing all along. If it continues (and I don't know if it will, we rarely even hear about it anymore), it will reduce flu transmission. --Vaccination. I don't mean anti-vaxers. They aren't going to change their minds. However, the people who aren't anti-vax but
  7. Mine just turned 23 a few weeks ago. He doesn't have specific chores like he did when he was young but just takes his turn doing general things around the house. He does his own laundry and has been since he was a teen. Occasionally if I have room in a load I'll ask him if he has anything he wants me to throw in (a pair of jeans, a few shirts, etc.) He dusts and vacuums his room though when I run the robot vac I usually let it go in his room too. He takes out the trash and recycling - empties all wastebaskets in the house and the kitchen trash - and brings the bins in after it's been collect
  8. @MercyA or @Seasider too would you pm me? Or someone else who sees this. I didn't see any of it so I can't even begin to guess who this is or what happened, other than someone got doxxed. That makes me angry. This is supposed to be our safe place, even when we strongly disagree with each other.
  9. I'm with you too. Raised partly in northern NJ and then Central Florida. A pot plant is a marijuana plant. A plant in a pot is a potted plant. I will pot a plant or repot a plant. I have many potted plants (also called container plants) in my front yard but I don't have any pot plants anywhere. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
  10. What a great thread! Thank you for starting it @Liz CA. Congratulations to both of you! Grandchildren are a special kind of joy. ❤️ Aw, it must be sad to see all the flooding there, knowing it was beautiful just a few months ago. Now I feel bad (kind of). We complained that we were an hour away and we moved to get closer to our grandkids. I'm happy for you that you're so much closer to yours now. I agree. Being close to grandchildren is heaven!
  11. Hmm. That's hard to say because there are shows on both that we like. If it's British mysteries you want, probably Britbox. Acorn has more international mysteries and noir than Britbox though. I like the documentaries on Acorn better. ETA: You could probably browse through the offerings on the website of both and see what you think.
  12. Thanks. I thought that was probably the one but then I started seeing others with the name Happy Masks.
  13. I'm seeing more than one Happy Mask when I search online. Would someone link to the one being discussed here please? Thanks. We use something similar that I ordered from Gear Best. I can't find the exact one now when I search or I'd link. They fit well and it's easy to breathe because of the space between the mask and your face. Supposedly you can reuse them up to 5 times but I'm a little leery. Mostly we decide based on where and how long the mask was worn. We also have a pack of disposable surgical masks in a common area of the house. With our house being brand new constr
  14. I confess I was getting worried, especially every time I heard she went in for some kind of treatment. Yes to both. I'm still reeling and feeling devastated but I know what RGB would do. She'd get to work! I've already been doing GOTV texting and have signed up for more. It's been hard for me to get out and about lately due to a few issues so I'm doing all I can from home. In addition to texting and calling, I prepare flyers and stickers for those who are actually going door to door.
  15. Neither of us (dh and I) have found much on Netflix lately. We're almost through with the first half of Lucifer Season 5 and haven't heard when the rest will be available. We're considering Ozark because we keep hearing so much about it. We love Britbox! Between that and AcornTV we get our fix of British police/detective/amateur detective series. We're currently watching Jonathan Creek and have already watched the other two on your list. Have you watched The Mallorca Files? We enjoyed that one.
  16. I'm going to have to count out loud so I can figure it out. The short answer is: A lot. As a kid - I lived in 7 different houses so that's 6 moves. I don't remember the first move since I was under 2 years old, so the second place we lived is the first place I remember. Our 5th move was from NJ to Florida and the 6th move was to the city where I ended up living for most of my life. Do we count various moves during college/university years? I lived in 4 different places then - dorm, sorority house, then 2 different apartments. As an adult - 5 when I lived in GA where I got my fi
  17. I'm also not a big recipe follower when it comes to soup, but this white bean chicken chili is good. I got the recipe from my dil, and it's a hit here with my guys. When ds was a teen and had friends over he often requested I make it. I've made it a few times as my meal train contribution and have actually had it requested by a friend who needed a meal train again a year later. It's mild but you can fix that with seasonings or hot salsa if you want it spicy. Also, dil doesn't brown the chicken first but I do. It probably isn't necessary. White Bean Chicken Chili - can be made on the stov
  18. Yes. I often cook noodles separately in pasta based soups. If it sits in the refrigerator for a day the broth is absorbed by the pasta and you end up with a very thick stew-like thing. It's no longer soup.
  19. There haven't been any announcements about this new update but most of us woke up yesterday morning to an all new look. All seemed fine until this morning when I tried to upload a photo in a social group. It looks like it's going to upload but then it doesn't. There's no error message, no message that says I've used my allotted space. Just no photo after it appeared to upload. Anyone else having this problem?
  20. I came here to check. It does look different, both on the desktop website and on my phone. I would have thought there'd be something in the announcements, but no. It's quite a minimalist look.
  21. I'm sorry. It sounds really hard. No. Unfortunately we're going in the complete opposite direction. Our governor is allowing bars to open at 50% capacity starting today. Yep. I wish we had gotten that serious from the start.
