    Some time back, I got a good deal on a large quantity of microfiber cloths .. I used them out of the package to dry my truck after washing, around the kitchen, etc .. when they got soiled, I'd just cram them in a plastic bag until I had a big bag full .. I then washed and dried with a dryer sheet, just the microfiber cloths, nothing else ..

    Then, when I pulled a clean one out, it seemed like it would not absorb at all .. re-washed / dried with no sheet or fabric softener, voila, absorbed like new ..

    A wooden back scratcher works great for fishing stuff out of the washer and dryer :)
    I keep one out on the dryer.

    Nah, I'd never yell at you Willie!! If I did IT WOULD LOOK LIKE THIS &&%#!!**%%#@#!

    Great idea! The length of the grabber would be awkward. A back scratcher seems like it would be perfect.

    Good morning people. Today feels like a good day to make a pot of vegetable beef soup.

    Good morning everyone :)

    Janet it does sound like a soup day. But mine will have to wait for tomorrow. I think split pea soup sounds good to me…with carrots and potatoes.

    Today we're replacing my leaky greenhouse roof. What a pain :(

    My last pot of soup was lentil. A neighbor was suddenly put on a no salt diet so she asked if I wanted her containers of ham drippings she had in the freezer. Absolutely! So, I dumped most of it in the pot without tasting first. Dumb, dumb, dumb! Man was that salty! I had to go buy another bag of lentils and double the amount of soup and even put potatoes in and then some noodles and it was still salty. Good thing she didn't eat it, probably would have killed her!

    Morning, misfits.

    Storms and snow continue to be either north or above us, although subject to change. So far, no problems. Also subject to change.

    Hola .. :)

    I started a very large pot of tortilla soup this morning .. it is simmering on low as we speak and is at least a 4-5 day supply for me .. when I get home later, I will add potatoes, frozen corn, stewed tomato bits, diced chicken and diced polish sausage .. it will end up at almost a stew like consistency ..

    When I have some today, it will be topped by tortilla strips, sour cream and Mexican cheese .. and, as a bonus, it always tastes even better on the second day and beyond .. I don't know why that is, but it does ..

    I don't have a problem making several days worth at a time, because it never bothers me to consume some foods on multiple days .. or, freeze up some as well .. by the third day, I'll probably cook up some brown rice in my rice cooker and ladle it over the rice ..

    Revised forecasts have nighttime temps as low as 5o currently, within the next few days .. :eek:

    We're looking at that same nightime number with a minus in front of it.

    Hello everyone

    I've been rather sickly for a while so i've been laying low..so to speak...been in the hospital for a few days with pneumonia..while there, they diagnosed me with Alzheimers!!!

    I prefer to call it CRS!

    Oh..and Diabetes... no wonder I've lost about 30 lbs. the last couple of months!Extreme
    dry mouth and throat, weak as a newborn kitten for awhile, so I've had a hard time chewing and swallowing anything solid or bothering to fix anything to eat.
    I had a Cortisone and Steroid shot while there..I'm almost normal...at least physically...I'll never be "normal" mentally!!But now I can blame that on the Alzheimers!

    But I'm now on the up-swing health-wise:)

    Old age ain't for sissies!

    Gotta go take a nap now...

    I was shocked at how salty lentil soup is.

    When I found out I was diabetic, I was told not to put celery in soup because it absorbs too much salt. But, wouldn't that make it perfect for throwing into soup to get rid of excess salt? Then just throw it away?

    I suspect myself of Alzheimers, but darned if I'm going to submit myself for diagnosis.
