We have always kept ours

in a fireproof metal box. The important things like our wills have duplicates kept by our lawyer and the executive of our will.

Other things like birth certificates, marriage license, passports...

I don't know what posters mean

to share. Are we thinking that in America, in cities, suburbs and rural areas rape is taken seriously and The Amish are handling it differently?

Our nation is filled with cases of sexual assault...

In the meantime

I think you could find a friend or neighbor that would accept the deal of baking your sourdough bread for a few slices of it as payback. You wouldn't believe what friends and neighbors will do for...

I know how frustrating that is

Sorry you don't have your cookies!

I have had that same problem with my former oven(15 years ago) and the oven I have right now. It is the thermostat in almost all cases. I will have to have a...

What you did was a good thing

for the cat and for his/her new human family. Your neighbors did not have him/her as a pet they had that animal as a hostage. Don't feel bad.

I would invite you over as a taste tester or someone to just eat a cupcake or two but you are too far away.

Thanks for the suggestions.
The future FIL is begging me to make the almond cake that I...

No one mentioned Trump

how is writing a parody about refusing to be flexible about a Wedding date now a political attack on Trump?
It was meant to make fun of couples who prioritize their wedding over what is good for...

I remember that day

my grade level was on break and our P couldn't even speak to tell us what was happening. She just told us to go to the storage area of the library. We were confused, we got there and the tv was on as...

As I read these posts

I keep reading the word people and translate it to Americans.
Yesterday Canada had 0 deaths from CoVid 19 The US had 1,004.

The refusal to take this virus seriously, the refusal to listen to...

I would call

the postmaster or station manager at your local post office and discuss this with him/her. I think it is illegal for a postal worker to leave mail intentionally at the wrong address. Some mail...

For years

I have purchased bulbs online from Breck's in Holland. I found they all did well, until of course the deer came by and nibbled off the blooms of the flowers that we not yellow!

And on the flip side

I had students come to school in basketball shorts and a sweatshirt during a snow storm! These kids do not have functioning thermostats in their bodies!

No pearls of wisdom,

but DH and I just purchased a new washer and dryer. He worked in the same building as a appliance store. They had a working kitchen, so he was there making lunches a lot. I don't think they wanted to...

I have never spray painted

one metal to look like a different metal, but I have had success with using Rub and Buff to change the look of brass to silver on small items. I also changed brass to a different rose gold on a...

If you are going to follow through
