  1. We went to Buxton, NC in the Outer Banks two years ago for Christmas. We got a great deal on a house with an unobstructed ocean view. We could watch the dolphins from our porch. There was hardly anyone there. Did pose a few problems for restaurants etc as it is off season but we had no trouble finding places to eat, even on Christmas. We are all introverts and it ended up being the most amazing Christmas for the four of us. Best time we ever had together.
  2. If they feel there may need to be a neurointerventional procedure at some point for clots in brain, some of the stronger blood thinners can't be reversed in time for emergent procedures. You have to wait for them to work out of your system and that can often be too long for intervention to be effective. That may be why they are sticking to aspirin - so they can get in there quickly if they need to do so.
  3. We added a third cat to our household last summer after a family friend passed away and we adopted her kitty. It completely upset the apple cart in our household and we are at our wits end. Since we added the third cat, the previous two cannot get along. The smaller female will hiss at the big male and then the male attacks her. When he attacks her, she pees everywhere and leaves a trail whereever she runs. We took her to the vet and tried to medicate her but she won't cooperate. We tried pheromone collars and that didn't work either. So, the female has been living in our bathroom to p
  4. My rising sophomore has all online classes this semester. She was given an out when it came to requiring her to live on campus for year 2. She has an apartment with one roommate so that she can be as distanced as possible. Her sister and Dad are high risk so we will play it by ear on if she comes home for holidays, depending on where we are at that point.
  5. My eldest was so traumatized by the Velveteen Rabbit and to this day, about 13 years later, still has upsetting memories of it. She wouldn't let her little sister read it. I think she holds a grudge that I even allowed it in the house.
  6. I have a theatre major and an art major, both struggling right now with online learning to finish their current semesters. If their schools go online only in the fall, both of my kids may be sitting out a semester. It is a waste of money and time for them to try to work on their degrees online, not to mention the major hit their GPAs are going to take because they are not doing well with the online stuff.
  7. I have a Melitta cup that comes with a pot in 6 or 10 cup sizes. This doesn't keep coffee warm but they do also have them that come with a caraffe to keep the coffee warm after you make it. I love mine. I use it for my own coffee and can use for guests but doesn't take up a ton of space like a whole machine. https://www.amazon.com/Melitta-640616-Pour-Over-Coffee-Carafe/dp/B000MIT2OK/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=melitta+cup+pot&qid=1582949586&sr=8-1
  8. I don't really care for Will Ferrell or any actor that relies on that sort of humor. Its just not my thing. However, I can't stand to watch johnny Depp in anything. I think he always just looks like he needs a bath and he just creeps me out.
  9. Windmill Farm in Springboro is our favorite and we haven't missed a year in almost 25 years. The hay ride is crazy in that it is hilly and muddy and always a great time. There is also a small farm market a couple of play areas on the grounds and animals. Windmill Farm
  10. My nephew lives in an inner city neighborhood. During recent heatwave, he decided to go outside to sleep on his porch. He awakened to being bitten by raccoon - three times. Many rabies shots later, he also no longer thinks they are cute. I only think they are cute on TV.
  11. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond because I haven't been around much. The hybrid battery is in a constant state of charging. You never have to wait for it to charge. The gas engine charges battery while it is running so when you are driving it just cycles between gas engine and battery. Our gas mileage is great. We own two hybrid vehicles and never plan to go back to a non-hybrid.
  12. I am a Toyota person and have never enjoyed driving Hondas. If she is a Toyota person, I would keep that in mind. Also, I have an older Highlander Hybrid and LOVE it. With a hybrid, nothing has to be plugged in. The gas part of the engine charges the battery. I am not interested in ever straying from Toyota again. ETA: My 2007 needs more cup holders though.
  13. My daughter has a very hard time letting go of some things and is completely opposed to just donating her things to a thrift store. However, if I can come up with a charity or something with more of a specific purpose, she is better about it. For instance, she feels better about donating things to the homeless shelter and currently survivors of a devastating tornado in our area. Then, she feels that she knows more of where her things are going and can feel better about their new purpose. Just a suggestion. I have a MIL and DH very much like this so I feel your pain. It even has me second
  14. My favorite topic. Just recently saw Waitress. It is now in my top 10 musicals. I loved it Another favorite is Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. This is probably the one I actually listen to the most often. Others include: Little Shop of Horrors Jesus Christ Superstar American Idiot Chess In the Heights Chicago An American in Paris Bright Star City of Angels Finding Neverland Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder The Lion King Dogfight The Color Purple Something Rotten Also, I haven't actually seen the
