sour grapes

My mom used to make granita with sour fruit. She would blend them and mix with simple sugar, and then freeze it. Every half hour or so she'd stir it with a fork to break up the ice. After 4 or 5...

Could it be kudzu? If so, I'd rip it out. It is a notorious weed that takes over everything.

flu shot

I received a notice from Kaiser Permanente that flu shots will be available starting in September.

That's how it has always been with flu shots. They reduce the risk by between 40-60%. Better...

I agree that it's unfair to single out the hair salons. Both bars and hair/nail salons have been the biggest culprits in Covid outbreaks.

Here in San Diego bars can only operate if customers sit...

mask infection

I hope the cream works for him. The problem with many masks is that they tend to get wet the longer they are worn. Is it possible for him to change masks every few hours? That would require having 4...

kid masks

If you sew you can make a kid mask yourself. I have a great pattern. I recently made several for my 9-year old granddaughter, and they fit perfectly. You can modify the pattern for your 5 year old by...

air conditioning

We don't have A/C and don't need it. Ocean breezes are enough to cool us, and when it does get warmer (75º-77ºF), it is primarily dry heat. We also have at the most 1-2 weeks of higher humidity and...

Where I live, the wealthy people (multi-millionaires and billionaires) send their kids to private schools that cost $40K+. They can afford to pay for private teachers and private everything. They are...

I wonder about liability issues when hiring someone to be with children. I can see why privileged parents would hire teachers, as they have been vetted.

I frankly worry more about the students in...

medical office

I can't believe someone working in a medical office would not be wearing a mask. I had a routine checkup last week, and every single person working in the building wore a mask. Some even wore two...

metal nose strips

Wow! Thanks for this post. I wish I had known about this before. I just sent 12 masks to my DD#2 and family. I used gardening twist ties, but I'm sure they won't last.

I have a large glass top coffee table. I use window cleaner to clean it. Easy to maintain. Just make sure you don't put scratchy things on top if you don't want scratches.
