YAYAYAYAYAYAY for new sewing machines. I have two, both Berninas. One is about 25 years old but still sews like a charm, and for some things I prefer it over my new Bernina. Enjoy your new Brother, make lots of simple things to get the feel for your [more]

That board has made me seriously consider leaving the Fool, and I have been around awhile. At first I really thought it was just performance art, but no longer. How they continue to get way with their disgusting racism is completely baffling to [more]

Dehydrators?

DH loves beef jerky, and I am thinking he may enjoy making his own so I'd like to get him a dehydrator for Christmas. I would appreciate some recommendations for dehydrators that would be good for this purpose.

Thanks!

Re: Assisted living questions?

Thank you for the responses. I wasn't clear in the OP that FIL has enough money in the bank to cover a little less than 2 years in assisted living, but no other assets that could be liquidated. Luckily, my brother-in-law is a geriatric physician, and [more]

Assisted living questions?

My FIL will be moving to assisted living within a few weeks. He is very receptive and ready for the change, after struggling mightily to preserve his independence after a devastating stroke 2 years ago.
This is unfamiliar territory for me. He [more]

Re: My annual Halloween money saving tip.

Gotcha beat. The true LBYM Halloween is to live so far out in the country that nobody comes to your door. We have lived here for 22 years and never had a single trick-or-treater show up.

Having said that, Halloween has lost a lot of its [more]

Re: So about Retiring Early...

I retired at 56, DH at 57. This is within the last few years, and we are still in transition. Our house will go up for sale in spring, and will hopefully net us enough to buy a small condo here (near to the grown kids) and invest a pretty good chunk [more]
