  1. Every November before I host Thanksgiving. So, once a year, but I have to do it today because something smells in there.
  2. I doubt those would be on sale. I've never used a stove top one. As far as the IP breaking, I've had one of mine for 5 years and it's still going strong. From what I've seen in their facebook group, IP is pretty good about replacing them if they do break.
  3. I love my Instant Pots. I've got more than one now because I was using them so much. My favorite one is the 6 qt. duo. I didn't check the price on it over prime day, but the last one I bought I paid around $49 for. With Black Friday sales coming again, you would probably find one around that price or less. I use mine to make applesauce, yogurt, meatloaf, rice, mashed potatoes/sweet potatoes, jelly, pulled pork (the best!), pork chops, and roasts. I've made other things in it also, such as cheesecake (the best!), bread, and spaghetti. I love how tender a roast comes out in the Instant Pot. They are so tender. I made one today in the crock pot and it wasn't as good. The Instant Pot does have a learning curve, but if you put in a little time to figure it out, it does pay off. I've figured out how to estimate the pressurization time and factor that into my cooking. I love mine. If I had to choose between my crock pot and my instant pot now (after owning one for 5 years), I'd probably choose the Instant Pot.
  4. I thought he looked pretty good. He looked rested and healthy to me.
  5. Low magnesium causes low vitamin D. There is a lot of information on this site. It focuses on magnesium, potassium, and sodium, along with Vitamin C. I've been following the protocol here for the past 2 1/2 years. It's eliminated a ton of the health issues I was having -- migraines, vertigo, heart palpitations, tinnitus, exhaustion. This might give them something to consider. https://therootcauseprotocol.com/all-resources/
  6. I'm so sorry. My dad has parkinson's and it's been hard to watch his progression over the past three years. This is what I would do. I would start following this protocol. https://therootcauseprotocol.com/ I had my parents on it for a few months, but they were not good about following it. I have been following this protocol for the past 2 1/2 years. It helped eliminate my migraines, brain fog, heart palpitations, numbness in my face & legs, and fatigue.
  7. I have twice, last fall and this spring. I'm planning on working Nov. 3rd also. It's been pretty easy and the money is a nice bonus. This last time I was an inspector and had to check over each polling location to make sure they were set up correctly.
  8. Look up Pioneer Woman's recipe. It's the best.
  9. I heard prime day was moved to September. OP, I am a tad confused as to what type of appliance you are looking for. The Instant Pot is better known as a pressure cooker, not as a slow cooker. It does have that feature, but it doesn't work that well. I have several Instant Pots, but don't use them for slow cooking. I personally would not give up my slow cooker. Instant Pot has several items for air frying. They have a lid that you can use on the IP pressure cooker to crisp items/air fry with and they have stand alone air fryers. I have the stand alone one. I don't use it often. Hopefully this fall I'll have time to play with it some more and figure out it's functions.
  10. I think a lot of special occasion dresses are labeled that way, but they are safe to hand wash. What is the dress made of? I used to be leary of how to wash items like that too, until I worked in a bridal shop and found out that the owner would take bridal gowns home and throw them in her machine. I decided after that that most dresses aren't that delicate after all.
  11. My daughter is back in the studio. She danced at two different studios during the school year and is at a new one this summer. The one studio did zoom classes and started back the last week in May, did a video recital the first week in June, and started their summer classes the following week. She is taking two classes their a week, which is 3 hours each week. The second studio did their classes online from mid-March until the end of May. My daughter went each week to demo for them. They had two weeks back the first two weeks of June and then did their final recital. That studio is done now until they start back in September. The third studio allowed her to join them this summer. My daughter is going to major in dance this fall, so I needed to find something for her to stay in shape with this summer. She also would have gone crazy without dance. She was used to dancing 20 hours a week until mid-March. This studio tried to do zoom, but their dancers didn't care for it. They took a break for April & May. They started up in June and will have 8 weeks of class for June & July and then a recital the first week in August. She's dancing about 5 hours there now each week. We took her two weeks ago to a national dance competition in MO. I felt that they took precautions to keep people safe. Our area had a spike of cases in April, but the numbers have since dropped. I feel fine sending her to dance.
  12. There is an ad running on Facebook for Bolt Virtual Bible school. I see it all the time. Our church did it and I've seen several other churches in our town advertising that they are doing it also.
  13. Yes. I would gladly purchase a fixer upper. Our last house was a fixer upper. It had an unfinished basement, dated wallpaper everywhere, carpet in the bathroom and kitchen, shag carpet in the bedrooms. But, it had triple the space of our previous house and the most beautiful sunroom. We lived there for 12 years, only moving became we built our current house. We did a lot of work over the years. Some of what you mentioned could probably be lived with for awhile, if needed.
  14. I would assume hospitals have toilets for their staff that aren't accessible to patients. They would all be using those. My thought process is that if the toilet were the source of transmission, we would be seeing a lot more grocery store workers and Walmart workers getting sick.
