    When I lived in Japan, we had one of those small two-sided washers. It was better than going to the laundry on base, however, it is an all-day project just doing laundry.

    I have some terry cloth rags that I use in my garage for cleaning different things. Anytime that I do put them in the laundry, I wash them by themself, using no softener or dryer sheets. I also use them to clean the windows on the cars and house. I have found that if any softener is used it will leave streaks on the windows.

    For the past couple of years, I have used an RFID aluminum hard case as protection from the possibility of theft through the RFID chip. Well, the current case has started to fall apart and so I had used tape to hold the internal sleeves together. I have been checking different stores to replace it but haven't had any luck. I finally did some looking online and discovered a new style of RFID wallet. The one that I had at first really liked was called the Ridge.
    Carbon Fiber

    After seeing the price, needless to say, I decided it was a bit too rich for my taste. I continued with an online search and decided on another brand and ordered it. The Hemelian Minimalist Carbon Fiber Slim Wallet. It was a whole lot less on Amazon, under $20. It arrived today and I think I will be happy with it. I checked and it is currently not available on Amazon. I guess I got the last one.

    So glad to hear you're feeling so much better!

    That's what I'd heard about potatoes, but it didn't seem to make much difference except to increase the volume. I'll remember the celery if there's a next time. Thanks for the tip.

    @oldbroad I'm sorry about the dreaded "A" disease. It sucks. I lost my grandmother to it. What are the docs doing for you?

    Two friends and I do this too with our regular emails. I insert my comments in red and my friend does hers in blue.

    lentil soup is a staple in Greece where I grew up. Just lentils, onions, water and lots of garlic. When it's served everyone adds a little olive oil and a bit of vinegar. I know the vinegar sounds odd but it really adds just a bit of tang.

    Hi Bea...the docs are doing nothing about the "A" disease..but i don't care...i figure it's just a part of being old. I have notepads everywhere in the house and one in my purse to help with remembering stuff.

    Hola .. :)

    Dear Kay ::

    It has been my stance and continues to be my stance, that you are doing fine in the Mental Arena, regardless of a DR's opinion .. I think all of us or many of us can relate to having had a bout or three of some sort of Brain lapse .. the other day, I broke my glasses string necklace and when I needed the glasses, I swear I spent 10 minutes looking for them and lo and behold, they were in my shirt pocket .. this is just one example I could cite of many ..

    My early onset Parkinson's sometimes presents days where I cannot sign my own name .. fortunately, my signature was always pretty sloppy anyway .. o_O ..

    In my case, as I always say, the Brain was the second thing to go .. :eek:

    Carpe Diem ..

    @Uncle Willie, you were spot on about Disney+ not having enough content to be worth a subscription. I watched the Star Wars movies, The Mandalorian series, and a few Marvel movies I hadn't seen, then cancelled before the billing date. There just wasn't anything else I wanted to watch. I really enjoyed The Mandalorian series, maybe even more than the Star Wars movies (not the original trilogy, those have a special place in my heart).
