I've not been on in awhile. Sharon and I have been doing home improvements/repairs, like many others on here and then we went with some friends to camp out...they in their trailer and us in our truck camper.
Your note on the 16th, Illimae....that just sucks. I'm hoping that it's not a big deal.
Hi Bedo...Long time no hear. Second grandkid....cool! :-)
Special. Hope it goes well on the 29th. My mom had Moh's done for a lesion on her nose. This was when her mind was still intact and she managed to convince them to add to the "numb" while they were checking to see if they needed another pass. She said that one "eye watering experience" to get initially numb was enough!
For a long time we got the store bought roasted chickens and, even though I *LOVE* salt, I thought they were much too salty. So, I would make my own....pressure cook and then some oven time to crisp the skin. Then we could spice it like we wanted. I kept noticing that spices seemed to lose their taste in the pressure cooker and I found I had to just about double up on the amount of spices to get it tasting right. I mentioned it to my mom and, "Oh. Yes. Compared what you use in an oven recipe....double it for a pressure cooker..." I guess I should have asked first! :-)
We used to keep cooked chicken in the refrigerator, but since turning "kinda-sorta-somewhat-a-little-bit" vegan, we have switched to rice and beans. The rice gets cooked in some home made salt free chicken (or turkey) broth and the beans are either white tepary, black, pinto or "chick peas".
Chi, that's interesting about the changing diet advice. Sharon tried WW several times over the past 25 years and each time, it sort of worked. I would follow along and it would sort of work for me too. Both of us would lose some weight and then the loss would stop. I find if I run 20-30 miles a week , I'll lose 2-3 pounds a week. Then, after a month, I'll "plateau" for a month and then I'll resume the 2-3 pounds a week loss...for another month....
Nance, I'll bet you're glad the flooring is done! You, too, Minus, with your repair stuff.
It will be interesting when we move. We have 14 seven foot tall, five foot wide book cases full of books. I'm considering buying a used box truck with a hydraulic lift on the back so I can slide, instead of lift, all the heavy stuff. When we get done moving, we can then sell the truck. Used ones that are "good enough to get the job done" are around $10,000 and when we are done, we can sell the truck.
