Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

                                        ALPHABET HINTS

    A is for aluminum foil.  A piece of it with a knob of washing soda in a jar of water makes a silver dip cleaner.
    B is for ball point ink which you can remove from vinyl by rubbing it with a    slice of raw potato.
    C is for camphorated oil.  Applied with a soft cloth it will take white marks off furniture.
    D is for drip dry.  Shirts dry faster and smoother over a plastic bag put over the hanger.
    E is for egg slicer.  Use it for slicing mushrooms and beets as well as eggs.
    F is for foam rubber.  Rub it over upholstery to pick up dog and cat hairs.
    G is for glycerine.  Oil the mincer with it.  It won't flavor the food.
    H is for herbs.  Keep them on the shelf in alphabetical order, so they're easy to find.
    I is for icing.  Add a pinch of baking soda to icing to keep moist and prevent cracking.
    J is for jam.  It takes less time to make if the sugar is warmed through in the oven.
    K is for kneeling pad.  Make it from an old hot water bottle stuffed with old nylons.
    L is for lemon.  A half dipped in salt cleans copper.
    M is for magnet.  Keep one in the sewing box to pick up pins and needles.
    N is for newspapers.  They make excellent window polishers.
    O is for onion.  Pierce it lengthwise with a skewer and it won't come to pieces when boiled.
    P is for parsley.  Seed watered with boiling water grows quicker.
    Q is for quilt.  Keep it from slipping by sewing matching material to one end and tucking it under the mattress.
    R is for rubber gloves.  When the right ones wear out, hang on to the left ones.  Turn one inside out and you have a        pair again.
    S is for soap.  Rubbed on the bottom edges of a drawer it'll make it run smoothly.
    T is for tea leaves.  Put them around lily of the valley for more flowers.
    U is for undies.  Put the fragile ones in a pillocase, tied around the top, and wash them with the rest of the washing in      your machine.
    V is for vinegar.  Wiped over furniture before polishing gives an extra shine.
    W is for window box.  Put a layer of gravel over the earth, so the dirt doesn't spatter the windows.
    X is for Xmas cake.  The icing won't be ruined if the cake is put on the lid of the cake tin and the base over it.
    Y is for yeast.  It shouldn't be kept in the fridge or in a cold place, or it will die.
    Z is for zipper.  It it sticks, try running the lead of a pencil up and down the metal parts.  It should then run smoothly.[/list]

    Eta Sue - These alphabet hints are so interesting.  Wish I had known the "W" hint before this.  I have a window box under my bedroom window....and the window is always splattered with dirt!...LOL
