I continued through the years even after getting a good full time job. With renter issues we have always ...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Be aware of any limitations with cash withdrawal. Some banks limit the amount you can pull in a single transaction/day...\ I think that's more than some banks. All of them do this so far as I know. They do it for a variety of reasons but mostly to prevent their ATMs being cleaned out by just a smal...

I got tired of not having it every time or depending on buying a box mix and decided to look for a copy cat recipe f...

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Trying to use up older pantry items and reorganize it all. Used up some frozen chicken and the last little bit of spoon honey. Added a touch of water and microwaved it for 15 seconds then after spraying the frozen chicken with olive oil basted it with the honey then sprinkled with cinnamon.

We have plenty of options if it does. I have about 3 gallons of ice melt left over from 2009 when we had quite ...

BOOM- a big snow storm hit your area

I guess I might actually buy a snow shovel. We are in eastern nc. I rarely snows long enough to stick but every couple of years we get enough that it shuts down schools then and day cares.
