Yay! This is great news. My hearing is not yet as big a problem as yours, but it is good to know that the technology is there when I decide I need it.

Lucky you!

Like live_to-learn I'm a pretty light packer with minimal clothes. I only take a carry-on, which limits what I can wear on my trips.

Yes! I've had back-to-back trips with 1 or...

This year's Thanksgiving will be very quiet. DH and I have reservations at a local restaurant and DD#1 and friend will join us. In the past I've hosted in-laws who came from 3 different states, but...

Even with that scenery I bet the economy seats will be even worse in 10-15 years, especially the middle seat. :rolleyes: I am petite and I already have a hard time with the lack of space on long...

You'll do fine. Just enjoy the wedding and don't overthink it. I have found that a pretty scarf hides a lot of perceived imperfections.

amiga, I agree with sonoma. Even though we live in a mild...

So true! Before traveling I do my research about hotels, airbnb's, VRBOs, etc. and come across reviews about beds. One of the things I've noticed in the reviews is that people often either praise or...

freeway traffic

Absolutely! Even as little as 5 years ago rush hour in the afternoon didn't start until 4 PM and was finished by 6 PM. Now it starts at 2:30 PM and doesn't end until about 7:00 PM. Same with the...

deep cleaning

As PPs have said, if you can afford it, do it! However, you may have to hire separate people for the windows and yard work. But it is so nice to know that your house is squeaky clean, at least for a...

From one Oma to another, I am sorry you can't be with them. I have the same dilemma, even though my DGDs are not as far away as yours. In my case my DD#1 and family go to her in-laws every Christmas...

bad driving

I'm sorry about your kids' accidents. I'm glad they weren't hurt.

This is a very timely post. I was telling DH yesterday about the blatant violations that I've seen in the past couple of weeks in...

Sorry, I should have made it clear that you can't see the gopher, but as PoohBear said, the kale was disappearing in front of my eyes. I saw the top leaves disappear into the ground. The kale was a 3...

In flagrante delicto

Great photos, everyone!

Mine is of a gopher in my small vegetable patch finishing off a three-foot kale stalk. How he got there in the first place is a mystery, since it is essentially a wooden...

Star-Gazer, this is all very useful information. Both DH and I tend to be procrastinators, and even though I already have a lot of things in place, I know I need to do more. DH frustrates me because...

midday meals

I think it's a great idea. In Asian countries as well as in southern European countries this is the norm. When DH is traveling, I eat my main meal around 2 pm.
From my nutrition studies I've...

What is the policy at his department on visible tattoos? I know there are police departments that do not allow visible tattoos on the neck. A friend of DD#2 was not hired in Honolulu because of his...

Photo Friday

I love to see all the photos!

DH and I were in Quebec City last week where I took a photo of the iconic Château Frontenac. QC reminds me of Europe with its narrow and hilly streets. It was cold,...

artificial tree

Our tree had three sections, and it was easy enough to stack the sections on top of each other. It was pre-lit, and it worked well for the first couple of years. The 4th of 5th year the top part...

long underwear

My friends and I swear by 32º HEAT that we get at Costco. Of course what we here in SoCal consider cold may not qualify as cold where you are. :D
