    Composted cow manure doesn't smell bad and my gardener friend tells me that makes a difference.

    I do love the straw idea though. I do occasionally use that.

    I agree that there are similarities between VT and MN. Both are beautiful. When I was in NJ, I was envious of my brother and SIL who live in MN. Their town was adorable (population 687 at last...

    I've been so busy this summer with work that my garden wound up (so far) being totally half-butt. I did get tomatoes in, but not as many as I would have liked. But I was thrilled because my neighbor...

    Happy Roller Coaster Day!

    Oh, that is awesome!! Win-win for all. I hope that sister is fine with it.

    No, I don't think so. A dog would present the same logistical challenges in terms of transport--plus dogs are more high maintenance, so it may be a bigger problem for people who agreed to keep the...

    I'm not a lawyer, but I think Mouse became Grandma B's at that point (and wound up being Grandma B's by common law). This is difficult. If you feel that your life in your new house with your...

    I saw the movie, which was great. I'm sure the book has to be even better, as I've hardly ever seen a movie that was better than the book.

    I just finished reading Joyce Carol Oates' A Widow's...

    I also have a fob for my 2007 Prius (it probably was a real innovation back then). I actually love it because I just keep it in my bag and never have to fumble for keys. I'm not a key person. But I...

    So sorry you are going through this. I don't know how to resolve it. Just know that it can't go on forever. The belongings will eventually be all sorted out, and your parents are already stable and...

    I just upgraded my 5c. It really was acting up and I need a reliable phone for business, plus the memory was too low for what I need. I got an iPhoneX figuring I'll probably use it for a long time,...

    When IL referenced "Have Gun Will Travel" in another thread it reminded me of how popular Westerns were a few decades ago. As for me, I was more attracted to Little House on the Prairie than TV...

    Hmm.. We live in a fresh water lake area now. Salmon is a possible catch, but difficult. My DH and my son are putting a downrigger on the boat today, actually.

    It is great to see the salmon looking like a crowd waiting in front of a store on Black Friday. I know that "once upon a time" in the Lower 48 salmon were just as profuse as they appear to be up...
