    As long as we have electricity I would be okay for a few weeks. I have been eating lots of stir fry so I have bags of the frozen stir fry vegetables in the freezer. I make my own stir fry sauce, which I also use as a marinade, so I have a decent amount of those ingredients at home. Plus pasta, rice, canned vegetables and V8, for bloody marys, there's no reason to live like an animal.

    Ok, this is my living hell how I over analyze too much and know too much stupid trivial bits of information. I always wash my hands after using the restroom. Do I need to wash them before also? If I touch the door or something just before going that is contaminated, and knowing that the groin area is one of the top absorbing areas on the body, shouldn’t I be washing so I don’t give myself corona through my junk?


    Or do I just not touch and let it fly where it may? Doesn’t seem right to be peeing on whatever I hit because I don’t want to touch and aim. Should I be washing after AND before?


    Where’s the damn mailbag when I need it?

    We were joking about eventually getting down to squirrels in the back woods, and I mentioned that our deer population has increased over the last couple of years, but when Lew mentioned cats, I had to draw the line! :D

    This is why I've always thought hand sanitizer should be in stalls in public restrooms.

    Why I use paper towels instead of dryers if the doors pull open. I may have washed my hands but don’t know about the guys in front of me.

    Glad I’m not in the dating world anymore, although I have a killer pickup line;” I have 2,480 caseys points. That’s almost like ten bucks.”

    I’m positive the ladies would be mine after that juicy info.


    I figure it’s better than I have 1329 alerts. Because I’m ashamed that I can’t clear them anymore even though I really want to.

    Just a heads up. I know a guy while in college that didn’t have time to get to the store to get TP so he lifted a roll off The library. Heard it’s not an easy thing to do.

    It's a riff off of one that came with my bread machine. I goofed once, and we found that we liked it best. The top pic is the model I have; I don't know how it would translate to other bread machines. The second is the recipe, taped to the machine so it's always handy! Note that the water should be lukewarm, and the 3 cups flour is actually 2 C white flour, 1 C whole wheat flour. Takes five minutes to put together (in the order listed, making a pocket in the flour for the yeast), and 57 minutes in my machine (knead, rise, bake). The top line of the recipe is the setting on my machine.

    Stumbled across this looking for a video. It left me speechless. Why? And who would post this if themselves. I was more interested in what show was on TV after about 30 seconds. I did get a good laugh.

    Maybe this is what people are doing while sitting at home......

    Two sites I have used exclusively for 5+ years now are fitnessblender.com and Bodyfit by Amy (hers are on YouTube). Fitness Blender is a husband and wife team who are both trainers. You can search their videos by length, what you want to work (upper body, lower body, etc), type of workout (HIIT, cardio, yoga), whether you want the male or female trainer to be leading the video, and by equipment you have. All their videos are free. You can purchase curated programs where they combine workouts for you, and once you purchase a program you can do it over and over. I just read where they are discounting their programs right now. At home I only have free weights and a kettlebell. I do have a knock-off TRX system that I bought last year and we haven’t installed yet.

    This summer when I lost weight I would walk almost daily and then exclusively did kettlebell workouts. I have managed to maintain since about October. Hubby lost 65lbs through mostly diet, but he did buy a NoricTrack indoor bike and uses that quite a bit. I also use it as does our oldest. I am trying to walk again when the weather is nice and have gone back to kettlebell workouts because they are my fave,

    I bet if you found her Instagram there would be like 10,000 selfies with those stupid dog/cat/bunny filter things.

    The vixen is the champion at going into a room, turning on the light, doing what she needs to do, and then leaving. With the light still on.

    I go in and turn them off, and she says, "I was going back in there, eventually."
