I went to the foot clinic today. I have never been before so I had no idea what to expect and what, if anyt, treatment would be forthcoming. The nurse was very pleasant, she asked a few questions, took my compression stockings off and look... Read more

Talked to my sister on the phone for almost an hour. Nothing specific, just chatting. Did the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen (funny how that needs doing every day!) Took a ham out of the freezer to thaw so I can make a scalloped po... Read more

My sister and I use Facebook a lot. We share posts and information with each other mostly using the "only me" option and then tagging each other (or others) Facebook, in their not very wise way, has changed how we can tag anyone using that... Read more

I received a notice today that someone will be coming in tomorrow to look at the windows for a warranty inspection. I guess the office actually took notice of what I told the guy who was here the last time ..... although I thought that was what... Read more

I remember when I got my first personal (home) computer. I was moving to Vancouver, and bought the computer, software, printer, etc as the last thing I did as I was leaving town. When I got to my brother's place, after we emptied the car, I sa... Read more
Strawberry plants

I tried to grow strawberry plants on my balcony this year, first time ever in my life. I have to admit I know little about growing strawberries - I used to have a vegetable garden but that was vegetables, not strawberries. So as the ... Read more

When I moved into this apt over 7 years ago, cable TV was provided by the landlord. I just paid a small fee over and above my rent. It was so nice that I just made one payment and it was all taken care of....... The landlord has given u... Read more

When it is NOT cooked on a rotisserie...... When I was young and learning to cook, a chicken baked on a rack in the oven was called a BAKED chicken. In the past 3 days, I came across at least 3 (or 4) recipes that were called rotiss... Read more
