  1. Thank you so much, all great ideas. I am going to tie a knot and see how that works. if not I will either sew or staple the elastics.
  2. I already have the masks . I don’t need to make them . the elastics are huge . Wasn’t sure what others did about that .
  3. Thank you to all who have made and donated masks . We all have homemade masks here . Purchased from others . However , the elastics are huge . Not sure why people make those elastics so big but .. we have been twisting the elastics several times to go over our ears just to get the masks to stay on , but it leaves huge gaps on the sides of the mask. what do you all do to fix that ?
  4. Forgive me if I do not ask this question properly. I am looking for a beginners book to get me started with mindfulness.....meditation.....inner peace...positive energy... I am not sure what to call this? Zen? Also, I struggle with anxiety....what kind of workbook in relation to the above would you suggest? Being brought up Catholic...I am really clueless and how to get started on this. Thank you
  5. I have a very small Canon digital. It can fit in my pocket. But that thing takes amazing pictures. Crystal clear. And its about 6 years old now. I think I am going to take both like I have always done just in case. And all this talk about new technology, I am not even sure what half of what you guys are even talking about....flash drives..DSLR...mirrorless......cloud storage...I just talk on my phone, text message, and take pictures. Oh , and use FB...LOL If I get stuck I ask my 20 yo daughter(who doesn't always have the most patience with me lol) Thanks ladies
  6. This is what I have done in the past. I would take "selfies" and such to post to facebook, and use my digital for the really good moments. But I don't think I have seen one person with a digital camera anywhere in years.....
  7. I guess I am still in the "old school" way of thinking..lol... My digital camera takes amazing pictures. But I never see anyone taking photos with them any longer. And I am seriously clueless when it comes to new technology. Like getting the extra storage. I know its some kind of drive you put into the phone, but I would have no idea how to use it..... New tech gives me a headache sometimes
  8. In the past, I have always taken my digital camera. Nowadays, everyone seem to take pictures just on their cell phones. I have an Iphone X. I take pictures on it here at home. I have never developed any and would have no idea how good they would come out. We are visiting the Dominican. We have been in the past. Beautiful. I will have my cell with me. I like to make photo books. So has anyone just used their cell phone for pix when going on vacation and do the pictures come out good if you develop them? Or do you take pictures with a regular camera?
  9. We have income tax here, plus our property taxes are ridiculous. Not sure how high it is compared to here, but I am looking into that. The COL here is outrageous. People don't retire here. And not just because of the weather. You just can't afford it. I am going to look into TX Hill country for the motorcycle. It sounds beautiful. We have ridden in oppressive heat(and we are also dressed in jeans and boots/helmet for safety) so it makes it hotter. It isn't horrible once your moving(natures AC). But, if you get stuck in traffic??? OMG.. And, we have to do the ride in the summer because of the weather, and DH schedule. Although, we would like to see if we could do it in April, once snow season is done here. Thanks for all the tips on the areas to look into for retirement. I can't even believe I am saying the retirement word. Because I am just way to young for that.
  10. I ordered the travel guide. Thank you. I was reading another long thread about TX as well...it seems as if nobody mentions Waco and the area surrounding. Is that just overhyped? I am also going to look into the Fort Worth area. And its suburbs. Might be good to see the sights there, along with living situation. We def do not want to live in any city.
  11. Admittedly, neither my dh or I have been to TX. But we really would like to take a motorcycle trip down there this summer. Keep in mind, we are traveling from New England. We would be doing this for a vacation to see the sights, but also possibly looking to retire down there. Does this place exist? We are conservatives, legal gun owners(with very, very, very, very, strict gun laws here which are ridiculous in our opinion, but not looking to debate this), we love the outdoors,no snow, warm weather, little to no tornadoes, love palm trees, the beach, and lots of acreage with no close neighbors. Small town living with access to shopping and actual things to do! (there is nothing to do here...so boring). Looking for low crime, reasonable cost of living. Also, a strong job opportunity in electrical should my DH decide to keep working for a while. And, what are some great places to visit around this fictional place I mentioned above? We will be in TX for a week.....I know it very hot and humid...but I live for that. And what are some good places to visit on the internet to get more info on what we are looking for? Either to retire, or places to visit? Thx in advance
  12. My DH wants to use a outdoor turkey fryer this year. We are really unfamiliar with brands. We have a 18 pound turkey. Anyone have one they have used and really like?
  13. I did a search, but wasn't sure if they were any good. If anyone here used a particular app that they liked(and it was easy to use lol), I would try it.
  14. I am looking for an app for my Iphone that let's you see what a new hairstyle/color looks like on you. Any suggestions?
