    What Did You Do Today?

    Finally got the lilac bushes planted. They're looking *droopy* :frown Also visited Mom. Looks like the big plants need to be monsooned every day and the little plants showered every other day. African violets watered only when they get truly dry. Made a big mess, so spent more time cleaning...

    The Grocery Price Shock Is Coming to a Store Near You

    Yup, TP shortfalls can be unpleasant (and expensive) since most homes and businesses here don't have bidets, most people don't have a portable personal travel bidet, and people have flushed all sorts of substitutes :eek It was easier when every family had its own outhouse . . . the Sears and...

    Hot dogs, optional beans, salad, and choice of ice cream with topping or OJ. Talked to the dietitian today and we're going to work on Mom's menus since Mom might not be doing well picking things she likes.

    The Grocery Price Shock Is Coming to a Store Near You

    Some stuff has been limited in quantity on and off, or depending on which store. Being a little ahead on pet needs before the pandemic hit meant I could buy the limited quantity I was allowed and still be ahead, at least a little, even if the limited quantity was less than what I needed. Over...

    The Grocery Price Shock Is Coming to a Store Near You

    I try to restock while I still have a month or more left, just because pet food is lower priority than people food in a disaster or transportation/supply chain issues, or in case something happens to me that I can't get to the store (sickness, injury, etc.). I also try to buy from more than one...

    What Did You Do Today?

    Would a mirror on a stick work? Not the little dental mirror, but maybe a 2 inch x 2 inch, adjustable angle? And a flashlight. That way you could inspect the plants and containers visually :smile Mirrors like this are called inspection mirrors because they're used to inspect things, parts...

    What Did You Do Today?

    Stomp when you walk around the yard (keep an eye out where you step if you live in "snake country"). Most snakes would rather slither away than deal with us. The more you're in the yard, the more the snakes stay away. Keeping brush and weeds down and not allowing *stuff* to accumulate...

    What Did You Do Today?

    Saw Mom again today and took her some cut flowers, a replica painting of Jesus praying in Gethsemene, and fresh strawberries. We had a nice visit. Going to have to save the pre-emergent/fertilizer for fall and get some post-emergent/fertilizer . . . then probably fight weeds all summer :mad...

    US's Biggest Gasoline Pipeline Halted After Cyber Attack

    Every gas station I ever worked at raised/lowered prices when the truck came in (except for during the gas wars, when it was hourly). The price set by the owner/manager depended on the price per gallon and anything *interesting* on the invoice or word-of-mouth from the driver. However, as...
