    I’m 72. Springfield was actually nice when I was a child. I was born here in NH due to us having a camp here.

    You can still find some. My town isn't really cute, but it's little. The ones that are still cute in eastern MA tend to be expensive to live in. Fortunately, they are close by and we can wander through them for free. Western MA still has some pretty little towns.

    I grew up in Andover, when it was a cute, little, cow town. Behind our house were cows in a field that belonged to a large dairy farm that also made ice cream. The train tracks ran by the dairy and the engineer would stop to get some, then pull forward so the conductor in the caboose could also get his. We'd save our allowance and ride our bikes there for a treat. I was spoiled early on by real ice cream. That's long gone, the town is built up and now it's $$$ to live there.

    Someone posted that INW Lemon Cake had little to no lemon taste but was an excellent light white cake flavor. Soooooo I got it in my last order but haven’t tried mixing with it yet.Any thoughts?

    Definitely good memories.

    I used to make my own ice cream trying to replicate the tastes of my youth but haven't done that in awhile (time and calories!). I've been making yogurt lately so maybe I'll try a frozen yogurt soon. Problem is we keep eating it! In the meantime, I'm playing with vape flavors - good taste and 0 calories for the win!

    My allergies are going nuts right now and I can barely taste anything at all, I don't know what it actually tastes like as of this moment lol.. wanted something different to see if I could taste it as these aren't my usual flavours but were sitting in the back of my cupboard.

    The people I've converted to vaping all seem to like it but looking for a mixers input on it whether or not I should work on it when my taste comes back.

    Man I grew up all over the world and mainly was I noticed a certain percentage of people SUCK. I mean, not everyone. Of course now, with the Walmarts and the chains every town sucks in the same way. Well I guess Douglas doesn't have a Starbucks (some people have major issues with that, I don't) but it for SURE has a Walmart.

    IDK cute little towns are a thing of the past. They really kind of are, I am so glad I drove Rte 66 before it was TOO bad and you could still find whimsical things, like, I wanna say St. George? I forget if it is on that route but the first time we went, the husband had a meltdown (ooh just like now) because it was a Biker Bad Person convention and me and the kid LOVED it we had so much fun. The husband like hid in his tent being ill.

    Speaking OF WHY YES I am in fact now PACKED to get up at 5 am and get in the car as soon as it is safe. I even prepacked. I EVEN (this was like, extra good of me) vacuumed AGAIN. OMG I remember that last year and a half of HELL when I did not work at all, but the house was like out of one of them magazines. I actually could not work for a variety of reasons but I cooked home made food, I vacuumed EVERY day and mopped every other day, because I was BORED. I guess. Something was very wrong with me, because I even ironed the husband's shirts and I am not an INSANE feminist but if you are me, I consider (past say age 5) you are going to have ironed clothes you iron it yourselves. Anyway so the CURSE of the white tile followed me to Douglas I SWEAR whatever house I own (if I do again) is going to have dark FLOOR, and not tile either.

    Anyway, that sucked. But I was like "It looked so great in here yesterday? Was it? IDK." So, I even vacuumed the husband's bathroom. So, whatever. But it has been all rainy and white tile should be forbidden. The husband scared me by texting, "I am sorry." I was like, "Woooah." Then I was like, "I don't need an I'm sorry I am eating then packing and getting up at five."

    He said he had "Things for me to do" and started going on about how much was left before we could sell it until I texted, "You are making me want to off myself."

    Ironically, later I found the gun. I knew that husband had not done what he SAID he did and "Buried it in pieces in the yard in case of emergency." A) My kid said so and I agreed I mean that is not how you handle a "sudden emergency" like "Let me get my gun dude it's only 2 feet down it should just take me an hour also it will be full of dirt, requiring a wash." Also I believe there may be an arcane law in AZ where he can't own one, not sure but it was a private sale so it doesn't even MATTER. WHY LIE? I mean, I was hoping for a pair of hiking boots I had not thrown away, and like sadly instead I found "GUN" which meant, "Look no further you might find the bullets" I mean.... It's just an odd thing to encounter although I can think of worse things. So I will be destroying my oldest pair of Danscos but it is what it is.

    @kas122461 I don't mean to be a pest, but you and ASTRO both had this long conversation about how confusing I was which is fine with me, dude. But you don't have to, well in the spirit of seeking to like UNDERSTAND (St. Francis) you and Astro had this long conversation about my incoherence, to the point where I was like "Dude, why these guys be missing me at all? It would be like sorta missing a HOUSE plant or a CAT." You sort of vaguely wonder why it's GONE but like, nothing much changes, I mean no new information is introduced.

    LOL so in the spirit of seeking to UNDERSTAND not be understood, it is JUST you who is so easily confused although you and Astro had a TOTALLY lucid conversation about my incomprehensibility? In the spirit of seeking to understand, I totally UNDERSTAND if you don't want to answer that but in VERITAS you two had that little talk. You can just say "Yep" and move on. It's cool.

    I would love to know how that works or maybe not, but it was kind of you to ah, come looking for me on the DIY thread. I don't mind being confusing. I do mind being treated like a five year old.

    I live in a little "cute" town, and at first glance it may seem lost in time like an idyllic town like Mayberry in the Andy Griffith show.. but it's not. It's actually so lost in time, and this area in general, that they are behind the times in just about every way. I see more Confederate flags here than I've seen anywhere, I've even seen White Power flags. What the heck? There are literal neo-nazis here, and also there are lawn and city zoning/code psuedo-nazis. I threatened to sue the city jerkwads after they ordered me to abate(destroy) my strawbale garden(ignorance), and they haven't bothered me since we wrote them a letter.. no response at all. I used to get harassed all the time about my lawn, for no reason at all. Last time they did, I told the guy to eff off and hasn't come back since. Not sure they know how to respond to people who don't bow down to their "Law". People are behind the times in home decoration, fashion. I've seen quite a few sketchy characters that enjoy the bad sort of drugs. But all that said, it's a pretty nice town. We are semi-hermits and keep to ourselves, and it's generally a very safe place. That said, I'm still getting a gun :lol:
    The Norman Rockwell idyllic towns don't exist, every place has their own set of problems.. and benefits. It's not all gloom and doom.

    We live in a tiny town. There are no stores or gas stations or anything. No crime. We go to the next two small towns for stuff. We are surrounded by small towns. It’s growing though with new homes. I don’t own a gun but my son has several. Cutting grass today and it’s supposed to be a hot one.

    NH has it’s city’s which would all be deemed small next to a city like Dallas Tx for example. The majority of the state is made up of small towns, many are cute and some not so much. No Confederate flags here of course and I’ve never seen a White Power one thank goodness. There is a drug problem like I think is everywhere at this point. All in all I’ve never had a big desire to leave here. Most folks here own at least one firearm. Critters ya know.

    My little town, Burbank California is a magical place even if it is not little anymore. A safe place in the L.A county area because it had a separate municipality. own police force and school system.
    50 years ago it was a wonderful place full of sunshine and palm trees. A bakery truck came down the street daily, selling fresh bread to the housewives, donuts to kids. He even had velvet line cases in the back of the truck proudly displaying the wonderful pastries. The street cleaner came once a week to clean the streets. You had to make sure you were not in the way when that big machine (looked like the thing that freshens the ice skating rink, a Zomboli or something) someone please google that.
    The ocean was 30 minutes away and most families went every weekend.
    THEN, everybody heard how wonderful it was and moved there. Now it is full of traffic and the beach is 90 minutes away because the freeway is always at a dead stop. The street cleaner still comes though and it is still magical. A bit progressive yet still quaint.

    Good morning mixers. Today is my wife’s bday. My daughter made her favorite pie. I’m going to make brunch and have a card with some cash for her. She said she didn’t want more “stuff” so cash it is.

    I got some tanks and bottles cleaned yesterday but have more tanks to do. I’m not overly concerned about it today. I’ve found a few new recipes online that I want to try but doubt I’ll mix today.

    My list of plans will make your head spin, and haven't left yet. Was unattainable and physically impossible. I did mix your rhubarb custard biscuit, but with some modifications. I really like strawberry and rhubarb

    Strawberry rhubarb custard biscuit
    Biscuit INW .5%
    Rhubarb INW 3%
    Custard v1 CAP 6%
    Sweet raspberry TFA 1%
    Ripe Strawberry TFA 3%
