    Everytime I make something with elderberry, I have to recreate the bit in Monty Python's Holy Grail: your father was a hamster, and your mother smelled of elderberry. :D

    Whenever I buy protein, I'll cook it off and then freeze in meal portions. When I make soup or stew, I make enough to freeze portions. But I don't plan the week ahead as I can't predict how I'll...

    I think there is plenty of "blame" to go around, including many governors downplaying the virus, refusing to close things down, and taking a dismissive attitude in general to "own the libs". Only...

    Is any of this food donate-able to your local food bank?

    I only buy no or low VOC paint (and have for many years), but I would leave something unpainted, assuming it looked decent, if it meant avoiding me doing extra work.

    Every year, I vow not to grow so many zucchini and cucumbers and this year I didn't and am lamenting that I haven't been able to make pickles or the many dishes I make with extra zucchini. Some...

    Fall greens, like radicchio and endive along with more lettuce. The bonus with the radicchio is that if you don't finish harvesting it all, it will come back early in the spring and you can eat it...

    I live in a low crime area, but we do have gangs of inner city youth coming from Hartford to our area a few times a year to steal unlocked cars. I've always kept the car locked since an incident 20...

    I saw it many years ago, and it was mildly funny. And then it seemed like it was more of a documentary over the last few years.

    What I've read is that ivermectin binds to the ACE2 receptor, which is where covid would bind, giving the virus no way to enter the cell and reproduce.

    That sounds like such a Hildy thing to do. I remember the straw glued to someone's dining room walls. YUCK.

    Ivermectin from what I have looked at, has been used against parasites for many years with few side effects, so if my husband takes it, it is not likely to harm him. I'm not convinced it is helping...

    My spouse is agnostic at best, and was worrying that Covid was real well before I was really aware of it (January-ish 2020). So there's this odd cognitive dissonance going on. He's smart and...

    Thanks for that IL. My husband is one of the right wing whackos who is convinced ivermectin is the answer and refuses to get vaccinated. Sigh. He keeps showing me "studies" that he reads and...

    She went in on Tuesday, kicking and screaming the whole way. It took the staff until 3:30 in the afternoon to calm her down. Then my nephew showed up to visit and it all started...
