Everyone will have to hurry up and run to their local Turkish store to celebrate today's holiday.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 17, 2020:
Oh, I actually have one! I'll stop by to see if they are celebrating -
Todays groaner
tinkercreek comments on Nov 17, 2020:
Oh, but it's a cute groaner, thanks for sharing!
From a 1960s recipe pamphlet. Words fail me.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 17, 2020:
Plated repression!
Many of us old folks remember this
tinkercreek comments on Nov 17, 2020:
Oh, absolutely! I think the adults felt vulnerable on the west coast and guilty for imprisoning the Japanese, thinking they would retaliate.
Actually just for screams.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 17, 2020:
We have to know there are many who found themselves unexpectedly within that nightmare, poor souls.
You can't argue with that.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 17, 2020:
I most certainly agree!
Likely candidate.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 17, 2020:
Oh, yeah.
Sounds like a perfect weekend to me.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 16, 2020:
Works for me! At least, with clothed break-outs to the dog park, a house requirement.

tinkercreek comments on Nov 16, 2020:
When I worked hospital schedule/holidays in my youth I realized my relief in avoiding family gatherings. That made it easier to join groups of friends in later years, making my best holiday memories. This will be another solo day, where I buy some turkey parts to roast with veges and enjoy that lovely aroma in my home!
On Zoom I had said that I remembered reading how duct tape was a potential cure for baldness.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 16, 2020:
Oxymoron, much?
Enjoying a zoom meeting right now. Why don't you join in?
tinkercreek comments on Nov 16, 2020:
It is now 10pm PST, the box says Chat room is open, but 0 chatting. I think I live in the wrong timezone for these chats, and now see it ended 9pm PST. 🤔 I'll start paying more attention.
I wrote a question to an ex boyfriend about his kids.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 16, 2020:
I would take that as confirmation that you should maintain his status as "ex".
Bon appetit what's for dinner?
tinkercreek comments on Nov 16, 2020:
Baked cabbage with manchego cheese, roasted chilis and turkey bacon - with my Syrian spice, of course!

tinkercreek comments on Nov 15, 2020:
Interesting! So, with that cranial structure, are they early relative to horses?
Sitting on my back porch smiling.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 15, 2020:
I am SO sorry you live with all that in-your-face religious discrimination! Can hardly imagine there would not be civic PROTECTION, far from persecution or some nonsense 'special day' standard for the noise of yardwork. If I were you, I would feel VERY justified to just go about my business without regard to someone else's belief standards, which is a right and freedom of citizenry, is it not? And, if you are looking for a more equitable place to live, I think the Pacific Northwest would be a huge breath of fresh air.

tinkercreek comments on Nov 14, 2020:
I love it! Great perspective and logic, as per most Europeans.
Will American's be particularly interested in this article?
tinkercreek comments on Nov 14, 2020:
Oregon has a proud cranberry grow near our southern coast, so there is an affinity to buying fresh berries to make our own sauces and baked goods. That being said, my mom always cooked from cans and boxes, so the jelly cylinder was ever-present on turkey holidays 🤷‍♀️.
Anyone for Lunch?
tinkercreek comments on Nov 14, 2020:
Yummy, great looking and sounding salad! I would guess you tolerate more heat than I do, and hope you got enough of a cold beverage to deal with that. Have you ever tried sprinkling a salad with Nutritional/Brewers Yeast? It adds a nice nutty-cheesy flavor along with the health benefits.
Who wants to zoom? I just figured out instant meetings.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 14, 2020:
Me!! When?
Something I've long suspected.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 13, 2020:
Perfect, and I am sending to my daughter, who has a houseful of those!

OK, I have heard of it - just what is it?

tinkercreek comments on Nov 11, 2020:
Your instincts were straight on, and good for you! I think you should send a version of your post above to the school board - and maybe county health dept.
My so sorry lmao earned it
tinkercreek comments on Nov 11, 2020:
That and more, with any luck!
What do you think?
tinkercreek comments on Nov 10, 2020:
Isn't this a genetically modified product? Makes me a bit uncomfortable when a food product is entirely lab created, but it may well be our future. I don't drink cow's milk and haven't for years, so I'm not seeking that flavor. Almond and coconut milks are what I use to lighten coffee and use in baking. There are some good cashew cheeses available, but it may be nice to get other cheeses without all the nastiness of cattle farm factories, which are awful.
Do you guys know The Revivalists?

4 Interesting looking potato recipes. [youtu.be]

That ALL looks so yummy, but I'll experiment with using cauliflower as a sub for potatoes, to avoid nightshade family and carbs.
It appears the fat lady has sung.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 6, 2020:

tinkercreek comments on Nov 6, 2020:
Nice work! I always loved having a lazy susan on the dinner table with the kids. Are you going to give it a finish?
Bah humbug!
tinkercreek comments on Nov 6, 2020:
Oh god, please don't.
Anyone else tired of hearing Boomer used as a derogative.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 6, 2020:
I guess I've been spared that, though I will use the label myself. I don't talk about 'the old days', but I am darned proud of all the things I know and can do, based on the era I grew up in!
I just finished making a new Christmas wreath for my front door. Pretty creative, eh?

Yeah, nah, I can barely stand about 3 minutes of him, when I accidentally find him on-screen. I did catch the front edge of this, which was plenty.
Remember a few days ago when I lamented the negatives of glasses?

Beaut of a day here in the Miami Valley! Built a gourd/pumpkin stand for next year's attempt.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 4, 2020:
Awesome! So, do you envision positioning the gourds on the shelves for support?
Not so funny when you think about it!

The sad part is that there IS truth to this!

No need to brag with dead animals, and I would never look at anyone who did. Never.
A fellow user recently noted a ten year difference between herself and a possible positive ...
tinkercreek comments on Nov 3, 2020:
There are SO many variables involved in considering that question! When we are young, compatibility was so much more fluid - I once dated a man 20 yrs older, and one 15 yrs younger, and those were both good dating relationships - with everyone under age 40! As I have aged, I found myself concerned when I met a man with age-related illness and limitations, and also felt a bit sheepish when I met someone younger with far more athletic pursuits than I. I have also watched a close friend learn of her boyfriend's true age and infirmities only after they were living together, and that was problematic. In our 50's, 60's and older, it seems we would rely more on shared values, interests, and activities, happily spending time together, and sharing family and friends. Following fashions and trends as in our youth may not hold value. AND there should be realistic consideration of how things could proceed in the event of changed physicality or health issue, because those things do and will happen. Never a guarantee, but always a possibility of living with greater joy and love!
I met someone on Match with promise.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 3, 2020:
Oh, good thoughts!! 10 yrs is no big deal, I always think "what if we'd met 30 yrs ago?" - and the answer is that then I would have knowledge of his health/medication history. After age 60, there must be honest transparency in those regards. MUST BE. 🤸‍♀️
I cut my kid's hair then I went and cut my own hair.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 3, 2020:
Good for you! I somehow started cutting hair for friends in college, then my kids, so I learned a bit. My hair is long now and one length, grows very fast, so it's been quite easy to trim it myself. That's so cool your daughter likes it!
Hi all.
tinkercreek comments on Nov 3, 2020:
Sounds like a very healthy change of pace for you all. From someone who chooses to live with trees and hills around, I hope there are lots more of the 'alternate home' visits for you!

tinkercreek comments on Nov 1, 2020:
Hahahaha, I used to wonder the same thing! I was raised Lutheran, just a few incantations shy of Catholic. Saying "grace" before any meal was like our ongoing protection against certain disaster, of some unknown sort. Away from home, we were to say it silently to ourselves, and not doing so was a Terrible Thing. But it never was. I haven't thought of those practices in so very long, and now after some 40 yrs of spiritual exploration blurring into agnostic thought it all seems incredibly bizarre.
I just distributed a whole trailer load of mulch and feel so virtuous, he,he.

Millenials have fewer sex partners than their parents or grandparents.
tinkercreek comments on Oct 27, 2020:
I was divorced in 1990 when my kids were 3 and 5, still a good decision despite the traumas. I confined any dating to weekends they were with their dad, a couple actual relationships when they were older and remarried in 2004, a short-lived error. Both kids (boy & girl) married after college in their late 20's into solid, well-balanced, extended families where NO ONE has divorced, and I see that same trend of strong committed marriage in their peers. I am humbled and so grateful their generation developed and clung to those values. It has lingered in my mind more than once that for many we were, for so many reasons, a generation of multiple partners and marriages, and I do hope that remains a matter of history. When a very naive 19 yrs old, I wrote a college sociology paper on the subject, the tumultuous times and changes that our parents/grandparents lived through, and that what remained was a quite 'rudderless', as yet un-formed pattern for living. I truly thought I had retained that early wisdom, but was sorely mistaken. We lived in a time of incredible personal freedom, celebrated on all levels and likely encouraged by our stifled elders in subtle ways.

Good to have current information, thanks! We are VERY much aware that "the Big One" is coming, and could arrive any day. There are both small community and state-wide information and prep groups, which I have participated in. I just last week brought some home-prep lists forward to my little neighborhood, as the thought of a winter weather event is always more troubling.
