    Geila's pictures are lovely. The house I grew up in was Craftsmanlike, with a similar fireplace arrangement. I don't mind the painted woodwork, which looks wonderful there.

    Cream of Wheat used in Indian cooking is outstanding.
    I use instant coffee all the time lately, mostly for flavoring milky beverages.

    Kitchens have always been gathering places--at least since people started doing their own cooking. There's no reason houses can't be built with kitchens big enough to accommodate kibitzers. Tiny...

    I liked the back yard. As I've mentioned before, I hate open kitchens, and that was no exception.

    Since I've only ever owned houses built in the seventies, I'm A-OK with formica in the kitchen;...

    As long as people look down equally on the rich who legally (but unethically, IMO) shelter their money and businesses by off-shoring them and other means. It seems to me it's always the poor and...

    Yea, we certainly tried to improve things.

    Which generation touted vulture capitalism and "Greed is good" and heralded the end of defined pensions? Those are the people I'd blame, personally.

    A friend's husband was canned recently. He's about fifty. Odd how that happens. I think he's going to land on his feet, but what a shock.

    I'm sorry savings accounts have been made passe' by aggressive marketing of equities and purposeful lowering of interest rates. It would be nice to have that as a viable option, at least.

    I've read anecdotal reports of people's vision improving markedly with decreased A1C and insulin output. Blood sugar issues are notorious for vision damage.

    If you think of taxes as the government stealing from you, you're probably not comfortable living in a civilized country, since taxes are what such places run on.

    "Generation wars" remind me of "mommy wars"--both equally stupid and pointless.
    If you don't like the way the country is headed (and I don't blame you), work to change it. We did.

    My SO was big on turning off the lights everywhere. It annoyed me no end to have to stumble around in the dark at his place. Now that we have LED lights, I would hope this custom had expired.

    My friend/relative just mentioned a manufactured home was for sale in their neighborhood. I was tempted. The idea of spending so little to have a nice private place is fun to contemplate.
