    Holidays in the time of Covid

    @Mobjack Bay, what dibbles said! Me, too. Your table is lovely as well as the view. I hope you have a safe, fun visit.

    Coronavirus

    Me, too, Obsidian! I am a nurse, and I have been closely following development of the vaccines. They stop a drug/vaccine trial if anyone has anything happen that is serious to determine if it has anything to do with the drug/vaccine. So stopping trials is a common occurrence. If they meet...

    Holidays in the time of Covid

    I found this to be a fascinating article about parallels during Thanksgiving in 1918 and the current situation. For your reading pleasure: https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/news/nation/2020/11/21/covid-and-thanksgiving-how-we-celebrated-during-1918-flu-pandemic/6264231002/

    I don't anything about Rooto, but I use Roebic lye consistently without any problems.

    Holidays in the time of Covid

    All this magical thinking about Covid is very disturbing! I understand why no one wants to deal with Covid, neither do I. But I also don't think it's going to skip over me and mine "just cause" if I don't take precautions. Thanksgiving this year will be me and my husband, with 2 dogs begging...

    Sad day, i guess i need to make a decision

    Just now seeing this, Kim. Such good news! I wanted to tell you that I have had to put a dog down for a stroke, and I have had a dog survive a stroke and get better. So, there's hope! If you have to give her water in the future, it is so much easier with a syringe. Can you get a big one at...

    How frustrating and scary! I hope all goes well, Earlene. And I hope your surgeries go well. You definitely have too much going on!

    Coronavirus

    Dawni, I hope all goes as well as it can for you and yours. I thought about you when the storms hit and hoped you were OK. Now, your uncle is sick? It seems it is a constant challenge these days. Take care of you as well as everyone else.

    Sean Connery

    I wondered if anyone was going to address this issue. He once said that he thought hitting women was no big deal, so I agree, he obviously was not a nice man, at least to women.

    Sean Connery

    This reminded me of when I was much younger, and I said in front of my dad, "who would ever want to live to be 100?" My dad said, "someone who is 99!" Now that I am so much older and my dad is gone, I understand completely. Everything is relative!

    Coronavirus

    Semmelweis was indeed mocked, but he was right, and his assertions were based on data. I understand you have the right to listen to whoever you desire, but I do believe it is important to listen to those who have been educated to pursue the truth in these issues and who have gone to the trouble...

    Coronavirus

    I am an advanced practice nurse who has been involved in science for over 50 years. I keep up with all the CDC recommendations, even before the pandemic, I have been involved in research, I know how to read research and how to evaluate whether or not a study is valid or verifiable based on...

    Coronavirus

    You know, if you posted this on twitter, they would remove it as being disinformation. There is no such thing as "alternate facts" when it comes to science. I agree that we must be respectful to others who hold differing opinions, but opinions are not science, and being respectful has nothing...

    Hello! Anyone know anything about olive-baking-soda-and-water soap?

    This is the way my grandmother made soap. She had an ash hopper, and she made soap in a big cast iron cauldron on a fire in the yard. Her soap was a little harsh, but they were poor and made do with what they had. It was pretty impressive, however, and I can't imagine doing that and coming out...
