I had my left hip done 4 years ago while still teaching.

Scrub brands

My daughter swears by Cherokee and Dickies brands of scrubs. They are reasonably priced. I have NEVER seen scrubs with $100+ price tags. $20-25 for each piece is more like it, but she shops the sales...

Although retired, I feel that scrubs are a wonderful option for work wear.

They would be able to withstand the abuse of frequent washing and are made to last a long time - unlike most of my...

Feeling retired

I felt truly retired when some already-retired teacher friends took me out for breakfast that first morning of students being back to school.

Me Escargot

My mother had a similar “recipe” that she and other student nurses made back in the early 1950s. She called them “Cheese Dreams”, and they became an annual request for us kids during tomato season. ...

We’ve had a UTV for about 5 years. The deciding factors between purchasing the UTV over 2 4-wheelers:

Huckleberries are on here in the Northwest. DD1 has picked over 5 pounds! She loves hunting them and can spend the whole day picking. DD2, in another part of the state, picked a 20 oz in just a...

Good RX

I helped a friend create a Good RX account, only to find that the pharmacy must be a participant. Ours is not. And with that being the ONLY pharmacy within 90 miles, she was out of luck.

I get it. They ARE cute. So much so that for years I had at least one in my classroom, entertaining the kids nonstop. (These were always rescue chipmunks, rescued from our dog or cat.)

Well, give...

Previous posters are spot on - you want 100% cotton, Egyptian cotton has longer fibers. Read the labels carefully, they can be deceiving.

Percale is a type of weave and usually comes in 300...

I’m on the other side of the state from you and have been watching this closely. Good for Boise!

I fear my county is getting WAY too complacent. Population about 13,000, 2 positive cases.

I’ve had great luck with Overstock. Also bought a set for my MIL off Amazon that are really great.

We prefer high quality percale flannel, depending on the season.
