What a misunderstanding with AARP!
I'm sorry that you had to limit your shopping, too.
It's not as though I haven't cut back on a list...many times!...but we had gone so long without shopping, and these days, in our old age, we have needs that weren't as important back in the day. Sheesh!
You know, Monday began the retrograde storm...that and the retrograde proper will run through something like Feb. 3rd. There are 4 this year. Just sayin'!
I have never given to Wounded Warriors, but still get mail from them now and then. I did used to donate to Paralyzed Vets from a while back, but I haven't received anything from them in a long time. I wonder if they are even still around, though I'm not in a position to do anything at the moment anyway. Yes, that would be frustrating!
What I did, years ago, when I wanted a radio to take outside with me...we used to listen down in the garden...news, music, everything, was get a 'shower radio'.
It wasn't huge, and had a bend at the top to hang it from. I figured that the bendy part could be hooked over a tree branch if I liked, and because it was a shower radio, meant to get wet, if it was drizzling out, it didn't matter! :-)
I haven't listened to NPR since being up here. I'm missing so many things. But, we would listen to various types of music on it. They had regular music shows, and then some that played on a particular night, such as Hawaiian music, or reggae, or world music.
I liked the regular jazz program, and they had a blue grass show, etc. Many choices.
We lost many of our regular other shows, though...such as Prairie Home Companion, Car Talk, and Wait, Wait. They could be back on now, for all I know. I enjoyed them.
Oooo, treats! How nice to have! :-)
No, I haven't seen it, but I would love to! Besides all of the versions of A Christmas Carol that Ds and I have been able to watch, we also watch the Around the World in 80 Days'.
When he was about 6 or 7, he saw the cartoon, and it was an immediate favorite. After that, the original movie that you mention, then the Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson version.
As he loves Dr. Who, and Around the World, the version you are talking about would appeal to him as well. I'll have to see if it's on DVD...maybe for next Christmas! :-)
You ran out of bread, too? Aren't we a pair? I'm awfully sorry.
I was reheating things by making foil 'boats.' I also have been using non-stick foil for making cookies, but most of all my flat bread. Those and everything else that I make with the same dough...filled empanada-like pockets, cinnamon rolls, and sticky buns etc. That last would be a mess without the non-stick.
Ds said that he's been using a non-stick metal tray for his. I would need to find a tray the size of my odd-sized small oven, but it would be worth it. One supposedly came with it, we now hear, but neither Dh nor I remember seeing it ever.
Yes, my single burner, too. I go through them faster than I'd like to.
I hope that you are having a good food week.
By the way, my green papaya looks like it's coloring up. That would be nice!
