House buying and selling

Another great book

The Virginian by Owen Wister. It's the ORIGINAL and BEST western, and it was written by someone who actually traveled throughout and lived in the West during the 1880s. The author was highly...

Checkbook register

I do as MACMama does. And I call my bank's 800 number to check what's cleared every so often. I only use my debit card to get cash at the bank's ATM. These days I use my credit card at the...

I still use them. That's how I pay my housekeeper and gardener. And the plumber would only take a check recently. Some services/small businesses don't take credit cards because the credit card...

So inconsiderate and dangerous, especially in dry areas prone to fire. I wish folks would find more meaningful and peaceful ways to celebrate the 4th. <!--4thJulyHeart-->

Retirement life

Fridge door

I would have that door changed ASAP. It doesn't make sense to be inconvenienced like that.

One thing I really dislike is a kitchen where the stove and fridge are set right next to each other. ...

You are NOT foolish!

I think it is wise to listen to the MEDICAL experts and do exactly what you are doing. That's what I'm doing as well. The people having parties and large gatherings and protesting in groups are the...

Restaurant workers

Keep in mind that concrete hardscape will retain heat even after sundown. That is a consideration if you live in the Sunbelt.

I, too, would love to get rid of my grass but it does stay cooler...
