  1. So, what do you think? I'm looking at ordering a runner for my kitchen. The one that I have in there is from rugs.usa and I loved it, but it's not machine washable and it really needs to be!
  2. I love my Cutco knives. I've had mine for over 20 years now. I've sent them in to be sharpened a time or two and when I sent one in that had a broken tip, they sent me a brand new knife. Great customer service. This paring knife is $67 https://www.cutco.com/products/product.jsp?item=paring-knife And this one is $69 https://www.cutco.com/products/product.jsp?item=4-inch-paring-knife You could probably search for better deals on them though.
  3. I got tested a few weeks ago. I made an appointment on a Monday, got tested on Tuesday morning and received results on Friday morning. It was a drive-through facility and I waited about 15 minutes and did a self-test. They took my insurance information, but I didn't need to pay anything and it was advertised as 'free' testing.
  4. There's lots of drama in our neighborhood as well. We take bets as to how long certain signs will stay. During the last election, one of our neighbors put his candidate's name on his grass by only fertilizing that area so the name was in his lawn. Can't steal that. 🙂 One of the signs in our neighborhood now has two cameras pointed at it, but it was defaced anyway. I am sorry that elections are so polarizing.
  5. If you're part of a homeschool co-op, what is your co-op doing in response to COVID? Are you meeting? Do you have any restrictions?
  6. Thanks for the suggestions. We have a large age range, but the specific group that I'm hoping to make happy is the teen to young adult group. I'm not even sure where we're staying in the area, but we have transportation so we're willing to travel around.
  7. Our family will be spending a few days in Orlando in early December for a family reunion. Any suggestions for things to do with a large group that aren't too expensive? We're more of a beach/hiking/natural beauty kind of family than a Disney/crowded places kind of family -- even before the virus, and now we definitely want to avoid that type of place.
  8. I wouldn't count on a fever being the best indicator. A family of five who are friends of ours all got COVID this summer and none of them ever had a fever over 99.
  9. We installed one last year in the addition of our house. Our addition is over 2,000 sq feet, is well insulated and has new windows, so those could be factors. We only have one unit and it takes care of most of the addition, although we sometimes turn on a propane stove in the basement. We live in PA and needed no secondary heat source for last winter.
  10. The murder was true. It happened near me, but it was a murder/suicide and I'm not sure it was related to the virus. Sad though.
  11. You must be in my co-op!! Yes, it's all the co-op moms sharing it. (sigh) I listened to it, evaluated it, listened to counter-arguments posted by trusted sources and then shared those. No one wants to read the counter arguments -- so frustrating.
  12. Sorry if someone already said this.... I don't have time to read all the comments; but do those people buy insurance? Life, health, property, etc. ?? If they follow the same logic, they shouldn't buy insurance either. They should have faith. They also shouldn't have any money set aside for an emergency. They should have faith that God will take care of them. Did they get any vaccines? Do they seek medical treatment when they have a health problem? At least be consistent.
