I can still see in mind images from the Moore tornado and the one that Joplin, Missouri, and Birmingham, Alabama. Ya know, I often wonder how anyone can live in Tornado Alley. Then I remember where I live. I live in what is referred to as Dixie Alley. There is a town not far up the road a ways that was devastated by an F4 in the 90's (long before we moved here). That town is also called Moore. I wonder about these things, yet here I am hoping my husband takes the promotion to the coast where Hurricanes hit. At least with hurricanes you get ample warning and can evacuate if you choose to.


Gina and Shelli

Look at Deltec homes. They are good for hurricanes and somewhat good for tornadoes.


the name sounds familiar Smile

I hope everyone in the path of that hurricane will stay safe. I saw this morning on the news all the devastation in the Bahamas. So sad. I saw it's now been downgraded to a cat 2 and will be just off the coast, so hoping you guys inland will not be in for too many problems.

As far as getting favorite treats at the market is concerned my 2 go-to treats are cocktail shrimp and Lindt dark chocolate bars with 85% cacao. Yum!

I agree with our news anchors. Coloring books and Matchbox cars should have been in there a long time ago. However, I'll bet that a lot of people will be stupefied to learn that they have been paying $800 to $1000 for a toy ..... the

May I never become this OCD.....

I just stood and waited for someone at the grocery store to pick out about 1/2 lb of green beans----one------bean------at--------a--------time........ being sure to thoroughly mix the bin between each pick to be sure to turn up all of the very finest, blemish free and perfectly sized matched beans too...

aaaahhhhhh! - never - I must live dangerously and simply plunge my hand in and grab a fist full, heedless of any stray bean flowers, stems or mushy beans (after all they are on sale for $2.99/lb)

I’m very picky about leaf lettuce. Brown gunk at the stem end shivers me timbers.

No brown tomatoes? No kiwi fruit? No ginger root? Happy

(Okay, I'll stop now.)

Brown tomatoes? Some kind of designer tomato? Made by the little brown elves that pop up in the night? Probably an heirloom tomato, but I'm partial to elves. (Ginger is only quasi-brown.)

I have brown cherry tomatoes in my garden this year. They are called chocolate something or other, though to be fair they are red/brown mottled. I have pink/green mottled and yellow pear too, as well as good old red. They are all yummy.

My potatoes are brown until I peel them which I don't do unless I am mashing or making hash browns.

I haven't seen the brown tomatoes yet, but I sure love the Cherokee purples!

May be a regional thing? They sell the brown tomatoes at a grocery chain here.

I can't vouch for the flavor, as I don't eat tomatoes.

Yeah, I suppose ginger is more gold than brown. (Colorhexa tells me they're "slightly desaturated orange", but anything in the brown family gets classified by them as some form of red or orange.)

Jicama is brown.

Gina, I love Greenville, used to live on Piedmont Park Road just past the train tracks. It's the one place in the South I'd move back to. My ex husband lives there or Mauldin, can't remember if his house is within city limits or not.

Health issues, well, we all have or know someone who has them. I pray for those who need healing and comfort in their lives.

Tried getting back to work here, released some hidden products after editing descriptions and keywords, but to create, that's too much brains for me right now. Pain has me sidetracked in a bad way. Hoping this, too, shall pass.

Onward!

I had to look up jicama because I’ve never seen it or heard of it. Maybe it isn’t an upstate NY thing.

RG, pain doesn’t encourage creativity at all. I spent from February through May in bed mostly reading, surgery cured the pain, and since then I’ve been dealing with other stuff. Have you been wishing you could trade yourself in for a newer model? I want something fast and sleek.

I hope you feel better soon! I put you on my prayer list.

We all do--hope you'll soon be feeling better, that is! Pain is no laughing matter.

one thing I am learing, getting old isn't for wimps! lol

My chronic pain issues have improved but I still have this overwhelming fatigue that seems to only want to hit me when I am working at my computer.

What's all this business about the golden years? Who named it that way? Definitely not anyone who was old.

The only old person I've seen who seems to have been enjoying her many years of being a senior citizen is Betty White. I believe she's currently 98 years old.

Hey! We love it, too! But, alas, our time here is coming to an end! My husband begins his new position within his company on Wednesday and, by October's end, we will be living in Charleston, SC!

Rant of the day:

I recently picked up the small-size Crock Pot because I got rid of the larger one I had years back. Too big for the family.

First night: Followed one of the recipes included in the instruction booklet. The meat was overcooked and dry.

Second night: Followed a different recipe from elsewhere, taking the timing from the instruction booklet. The meat fell completely apart and everything tasted like everything else.

What the heck?

I spent time researching the problems and finally found the answer. The instruction booklet is giving the information for the larger Crock Pots. The really small ones build up more heat and faster, which leads to overcooking.

Oh, and one of the recipes in the booklet was titled chicken-something-or-other, but one look at the ingredients proved it was for beef stew.

This is far from the first time I've seen bad instructions. The worst was quite a number of years ago with a Sony product, its instructions very obviously written by someone in Japan who thought he/she spoke English perfectly. Those instructions were what you'd call a hot mess, and we never were able to properly use the equipment.

What on earth is the matter with the brainiacs at some of the companies?
