Re: The Thankful For List

Happy T-Day to all! May we all have something in our lives to bring us light. I am feeling very thankful this year for:

1. To have met the love of my life in my late 40's, and to discover how wonderful it is to learn to be truly comfortable [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Yeah, OK...Ignore. I would have thought this board, at least, would be free of this topic.

Good god.

OK. Fair enough. You guys have the experience in this that I don't.

If so I feel very badly for him. I can't take reading his threads though. He's still on ignore.

Re: You need a keeper

If it's who I think it is, I put him on ignore years ago. I think it's performance art.

Re: Poll: can you visualize things in your head?

I'm an architect - so, yeah. I always assumed everyone could do this until recently.
and yes, I do movie-of-the-book too.

Re: Squirrels

I don't feed them any more!

The squirrels in Central PA had nothing on these tough Berkeley squirrels. I think those were grey squirrels and these are big red fox squirrels.

Re: Squirrels

Put out corn and peanuts for them?
God no. That will just make them more tame and more aggressive. That's the thing that lead to one of them standing upright and then chasing my Mom inside because she wouldn't give him the cake piece that [more]

Re: Squirrels

The best solution could be to trap them and move them to another location
Squirrels??? Really? You could spend 100% of your time doing this in Berkeley and not make 1/10 of 1% of a difference. They are aggressive, and there are SO many of [more]

Netting. I didn't net my quince this year, and they got all of them.

Re: The Borax, It Works

Laura - great tips indeed - I will be using them! I do use borax for my dishwasher. I clean it every 4-6 weeks by running an empty cycle with 1/2 Tang or Countrytime Lemonade (whatever's cheaper when I buy my annual tub of it) and 1/2 borax in the [more]

Re: The Borax, It Works

Fantastic tip. I use borax only for laundry. Will have to try it for the annual summer ant invasion.

Re: Garlic...duh

Nice tip! I never put garlic in my stock as I like it to be more of a neutral base. But I bet it is yummy.

I always put chicken feet in my stock, as that's what my grandma did. They give it lots of body and flavor. I do about 4# - 5# bones [more]

Re: 10 things we buy but never use

I think this is a terrible, subjective list and just goes to show you (as per that looooooong thread about travel from a few weeks back), that one person's fish is another's fowl. The repeated use alone of the word "weird" is a tip-off. [more]

Re: The Cheapest Generation

I still think kids who have the means and the laws allow drivers license but who don't get them are bizarre, unless you live somewhere where public transportation is a good option. Why would you want to be tethered to your parents driving you [more]

Re: The Cheapest Generation

Well, I didn't drive until 26, and it wasn't really due to helicopter parenting, just lack of interest. My parents still drove me sometimes, but friends did too, and I walked/biked/bused often around town. But there is an element of being able to [more]

The Cheapest Generation

Interesting article in The Atlantic.

Technically I'm a Boomer (barely), but I can totally relate to this. I didn't own a car until 26, don't own one now (Zipcar and bus for me), had no interest in getting a house until I was 40, and remain [more]

Re: Email-fax services - Recommendations please?

I've used Efax for work for a decade, including faxing sensitive documents, and never had any issues with it at all. Why do you find it "shady"?

Re: Gardening and Seeds

But - to be fair, the Monsanto comment was at least directly about agriculture. It wasn't an off-topic pointless political slam like the other thread. It didn't bring in political terms or slam other posters just for the heck of it.

Re: Gardening and Seeds

Fair enough, SP - Monsanto wasn't the issue here - seed-saving on a small scale should be a politics-free zone that all political stripes can agree on. The only argument should be if it's worth the time.
