    People in my area stand there and completely husk the corn before they buy it. The supermarkets provide trash barrels for this purpose.

    I wash sheets and towels and underwear in hot water--they are all white cotton, so they are a logical load. Supposedly, the hot water will help with my allergies. And about 3-4 times a year, I wash...

    This older gentleman sounds a lot like my grandfather in his final years. He had always been very active, but after he turned 90, he slowed down. A lot.

    I saw the season where they built the house. It is metal, I think, but it is *two* houses, of the same design, built side by side, by the family, at least in part. They changed a lot of the design of...
