  1. I haven't read the whole thread so pls ignore if already mentioned--I set a timer to help me get started, which is the hardest part for me. I can bear anything for 4 minutes.
  2. In VA plantation shutters were big (white).
  3. OP here-- James Madison did start the year in person. Lasted about 10 days, give or take.
  4. I predict it won't last and was partly a financial ploy to keep freshmen from dropping out. I feel so jaded, thinking that.
  5. nm We are just doing nuts and olives Thx anyway!
  6. Having shrimp alfredo and a salad (lettuce/cukes/etc.). Can't get any italiam meats except I do have some pepperoni left over. I have mozzarella cheese that is shredded and two small tomatoes, as well as spices and vinegar (any kind). I can get bread for crostini. I really didn't want cheese. I can get melon but it is weird. I can get really any fruit or veg except the mushrooms are small. Cheese is super expensive. We are in lockdown so I have to use local stores and can't go into the Old City. We will put out olives, also.
  7. Dd used Nioxin. She had several stressful events and the hairloss came several months later.
  8. We loved this! We didn't realize it only had 4 episodes so we were super disappointed when we came to watch episode 5...🙄🤣 My husband really like Shtisel. (I think that is how you spell it.) It is set in a neighborhood about 5 minutes walk from here.
  9. @Jenny Yes, you are so right--there have been multiple reports of restaurant owners planning on staying open in defiance. It has just devastated the economy. We know several shop owners who have had only two or three customers SINCE APRIL. We made sure to spend some bucks at our fav Bethlehem shop before we went home. Owner said we were first customers in 5 months. Pilgrims/tourists are the lifeblood around here. They have got to get the numbers down so the country can open.
  10. I love Brittany William's cookbooks. Everything I have made from them is good.
  11. My thought is that sometimes children like your dd get a lot of their self esteem from the approval of others, and they are smart enough to figure out what people/adults approve of. It can bite them in the butt later when they start to want to diverge from what is the approved of behavior (or "look," belief, etc.). It can actually be a not-so-good thing, now, because it can be a sign of insecurity. Also, this super power of being so observant (in both the "I see" way and the "I follow" meaning) can be fun to apply to those around them and can come out as critcism and tattling. If you s
  12. I'm so sorry we never met up again! I thought you had left in early July. We had some family stuff that has been a major "distraction" so I haven't had the emotional energy, but I hope your time here was ok!
  13. So, Israel/Palestine has had a second wave of Covid and the numbers are way up. They tried various semi-lockdowns that seemed to help a bit, but, after reopening schools last week and relaxing restrictions, we have the largest numbers ever, so Fri we go back to much stricter lockdown. No restaurants, no nonessential businesses, no school. Grocery and pharmacy, drs and opticians and computer/electronic stores/repair places will be open. We can only go 500m from our residences unless shopping/dr/custody of children issues. Ugh. We can worship in small "pods," dependent on the
  14. Anyone have a free schedule for reading this series? Asking for someone on the Facebook group. Thx
  15. Lebanon is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem (as are Syria and Jordan) so we have a church in Beirut as well as a school for kids with intellectual disabilities. A seminary (NEST) is also there. Dh and I went together in 2018, and he went again last fall. The parish hall of the church had all the windows blown out and tens of thousands of dollars worth of damages. The church itself wasn't damaged--even the stained glass survived. A problem NGOs and charitable organizations face is that the money in Lebanon has been devalued by 60 percent, and banks are charging horrendous
