1. I send letters/greeting cards via the USPS. Although I mostly use email now, I still correspond with several friends by snail mail. We have been doing this since the late 1960s, and the letters...

This made me laugh. :D

I also noticed the comments. I had not seen this before since I so rarely go to the doctor. After I saw my PCP I saw the "pleasant" remark, and at the time I wondered about...

I am a lefty too. My youngest aunt, who was only a few years older, had her left arm tied to her back in school in order to force her to become right handed. I was lucky because they had stopped the...

I am seconding everything Pinemeadow said.
I made my masks the way she describes them with the elastic around-the-head loops. I prefer 1/8" elastic because it is gentler than 1/4". I wear glasses...

I love the reactions on this thread. Personally I have no problem with spiders. If I see one in the house, I catch it and release it outside. Black Widow spiders are an exception, but I've only seen...

craft beer

Craft beer has been a thing in San Diego since the late 1980s-early 1990s. We have at last count over 150 craft breweries as well as brew pubs and tasting rooms.

Dh and his friends are craft beer...

Who are the people who decided on those rules? Apparently they only expect middle class students to attend, i.e., those who have spacious homes with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. I wonder how the...

My grandkids call me Oma and DH is Opa. Their other grandmother passed away, and they used to call her Grandma.

last musical artist

That's a difficult one, because I went to Desert Trip festival in Coachella, nicknamed Oldchella because of all the "old time" rock artists. I saw the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil...

I wish I were better at

•public speaking
I used to joke that while I loved to sing with my students-and we did it daily-an entire generation learned to sing off-key thanks to me. LOL

old houses

I like to look at old houses, but seeing their potential and bringing them back to life is beyond me. I don't have the vision nor the reconstruction capabilities needed to do so. All I can see are...

The PPs said it already: you need the kind of exercise you like and will stick to and don't see as a chore.

I have never liked going to the gym and working out with machines or weights or the...

I grew up in Europe. My mother would buy meat, including bacon, from the butcher shop. She saved all the grease in a coffee can until it was full, and I would take it back to the butcher. I have no...

customer service

I can't remember the last time I had rude customer service. Then again, I rarely call because I hate talking on the phone because of my hearing, and let DH do it. My last customer service call was...

different personality

I met Garrison Keillor perhaps 25 years ago at a conference. He used to have a program called Prairie Home Companion on PBS. I had always admired him for his story telling and imagined him as a kind...

Thanks, Risa and PoohBear! I learned English as a second language, and British English at that. All those rules were drilled into me, and I can’t help feeling critical when native speakers say things...

virtual learning

Earlier this year when schools closed, my grandkids' schools had haphazard online learning because there was not much guidance or tech help for teachers. DD asked me to help with my younger DGD's...

As other PPs have suggested, make a witness report. There wasn't much you could have done about the lady in the red van, so don't let it get you down. Others obviously called in immediately, as the...

totaled truck

There are people who will tow your truck away and even pay cash for it. You can also donate it. Your insurance company may have some suggestions.

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...
