Re: Budget thanksgiving

we traditionally just have shrimp scampi & caesar salad and then call it done, which makes us thankful to have just a few dishes to wash.
Last year a shrimp allergy was discovered, so we're considering changing it up this year...

Re: A Peek at Boomers' "Last Homes"

A good list. The bathroom, IMHO, is the biggest one.

My mom several years ago spent a lot of money remodeling her kitchen. It's a nice kitchen; lots of nice conveniences. Since she got Parkinson's, she never uses it. What she does use is [more]

Re: 10 things we buy but never use

Meh. I read that article and most doesn't apply to me. I used to have a little bit of a problem with magazines, but that's pretty much resolved.

Re: My annual Halloween money saving tip.

What is weird is that one house my granddaughters trick or treated at were giving out individual packages of saltines. Very strange.

Re: I've said this before

Re: My annual Halloween money saving tip.

I don't do trick or treat. I love it, but the dogs go nuts every time someone comes to the door and it's just really stressful... for me and the kids. I only have a handful of kids in my neighborhood anyway.
