Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Got another sheet of the drywall up between getting home from work, feeding animals, fixing dinner, and running off to a meeting in the town 1/2 hour away. Had to do the "cutouts" for the door frame, the triple light switch, and one of the outlets. Also started on the cutout for the window...

Re: DNA Test Kits

Thanks rickdun but I can afford it. I'm going to wait till my wife goes overseas as she does every year to see her dad for 2 months. She doesn't have a sense of humor. BTW: I think she should hire a babysitter for me when she is gone for so long. Someone to cook, do the dishes, laundry and clean. A...

Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Made a Sam's/Costco/fabric store run yesterday. Got 50 lbs of rice, and a few other goodies. At the fabric store, found a 60-inch tall ROLL of a BEAUTIFUL blue wool that was so fine (as in NOT the usual more coarse wool) VERY lightweight, with a very smooth texture, almost like satin. Finished the i...

Re: Get free stuff on recycle free stuff.org

There is a similar site...Freecycle.org Same premise. I had also gotten about 8 or 9 cases of canning jars, Victorio strainer with ALL of the different screens, bean frencher, etc. from a lady who had inherited them from an aunt and had NO CLUE what she had, and didn't want them.

Re: New Members, Welcome to our forum!

OPFOR, Yes, I saw that episode. I like watching the show to get ideas. Another "natural air conditioner" to think about for desert dwellers...instead of a typical "peaked" roof and "standard" construction, do the "adobe style with the "lip" all around the...

Re: The importance of staying hydrated as you age:

Another thing they didn't mention...not getting enough water can result in constipation. So, if you tend towards being constipated, or having hard stools, you should probably be drinking more water (and coffee doesn't really count, because it's a diuretic--it makes you pee more; and alcohol doesn't ...

Re: October 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Got started on the foundation for the new chicken coops. Have the concrete "piers" in place, and the 2x6's on top. Next will be getting the hardware and additional 2x6s for "stringers", and plywood for the platform which will be the floor.

Re: Influenza

Arizona. This is the Arizona state forum. And yeah, none of us take the flu shot either. Me, because I'm ALLERGIC to the vaccine (anaphylaxis is an experience I do NOT want to repeat!) Husband, because he has powdered egg issues, and daughter, because with us having issues, she doesn't want to take ...
