  1. I would love to have this meal. My problem is that no one in my family (parents, siblings, cousins, children) eat this way. I got the addiction because we lived next to a baptist preacher for several years when I was little. I play with his son. i don't remember what part of the South they were from. I would get invited every Sunday to go to church with them. I rarely went to a regular service. It was just too intense for me with the hollering and fainting. But, I never missed a service that was followed by a social or pot luck. The food those old ladies cooked was so amazing; yams, g
  2. Could probably use a fanny pack if it use a few small items. But, most guys that I've seen wearing them daily don't look very cool.
  3. My 15 y.o. just started a business selling his stuff on ebay, craigslist, offer up. He is very excited to be making good money off of stuff that has been sitting around 10 years or more. For instance, I was really surprised that he recovered about 2/3 of what I put into his four sets of golf clubs. I was about to give them away or drop off at thrift. Other things are selling for good prices too. Now, he money to buy some very expensive things a teen needs/want.
  4. My 10th grader took the SAT in 7th and 8th grade using only 2-3 year old practice books from Princeton, Barron, Kaplan. HIs scores were excellent (1390). We started prepping around x-mass break. I would TEAR out a whole test, but only gave him a section to do each day. No tiime limit. BTW, just giving him a torn out section at a time, instead of the whole book, makes it far less intimidating. By the end of the the break, he had three tests done. I would score each section, and we would go over the errors. No, redo, just a discussion of why he was wrong, and pointing out the common test tr
  5. For overflowing bath drain: https://www.amazon.com/Green-Gobbler-Ultimate-Cleaner-Remover/dp/B0149L455G For toilets, I used 3 applications of this and the one toilet in my house that had problems is now clear: https://www.amazon.com/Roebic-Laboratories-Inc-Cleaner-32-Ounce/dp/B000BPIM1I For my washer which also is hooked to the old drain and overflows due to lint buildup, I used this: https://www.amazon.com/Green-Gobbler-Liquid-Remover-cleaner/dp/B085FS4JTD If you are up to shopping at Lowe's or HD (I don't go there due to the pandemic) they have the same products at a
  6. All I can remember from watching my folks play is that you need a fold up vinyl table, with 4 matching fold up chairs, and some tall glasses of 7&7.
  7. My washer died a month ago. I was offered a great deal on a dented floor model GE washer/electric dryer (120v) all in one. It is ventless. I like it a lot. Both the wash cycle and dry cycle are quieter than my old units. Does not have a lint filter. But recommends cleaning the pump filter each month. The drawback to the combo is that the wash/ dry cycle is 3.5 hours. Somewhat inconvenient, but the space savings make up for it.
  8. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I flushed the toilet to see if I was being pranked. It flushed. But, I DID NOT use it.
  9. I know of a house that has a toilet-no sink, mirror--just a working toilet in the small coat closetat the end of a hallway. I thought it a bit unusual to have a bath and 1/8th.
  10. Tip of the hat to you brother in law. I can't imagine taking one kid who has never played out on the course, not to mention two.
  11. I don't know anything about Mecari. But my 10th grader started on-line selling of his old toys and stuff using Offer Up. Around here, there is Imore talk about Offer Up than Craigslist.
  12. If the accountant is around, ma- nip-ulating data points could boost output using either technigue.
  13. Back when the 10th grader was 5 years, he found a new item before it could be put away. No big deal because it was still wrapped in the packaging.. A couple of years later, he holds up an item and asks what is it. I go I don't know, let me think about it. He then states "it looks like a jack rabbit to me." I had no idea what he was talking about untill I remembered the earlier incident.
  14. So sorry you had to experience such ugliness. As to security monitoring, I ordered a handful of these Wyze security cameras for x-mas gifts. The have online and off-line recording options. They are highly rated, but I have not recieved my orders yet so no personal opinion. https://wyze.com/wyze-cam-outdoor.html
  15. I don't recall ever going to a Chinese resturant growing up. But my mother's special meal was a can of LaChow chow mein pured over the canned noodles. I liked it at the time. Every now and then, I see it in a market and get tempted to try it for old times sake. The sodium content scares me off.
