  1. We are in the country. Landline is dead. Trying to report issue to #^%*% AT&T via their internet instructions. Giving new meaning to rat f——— and Catch 22. ”to identify yourself (besides last digits of SSN) please enter the last four digits of you account as shown on your phone bill.” Like I carry around old phone bills... ETA update. AT&T will send a technician on the 16th. Well goody. Today is the 12th. For this we pay $50 to receive spam calls, make perhaps 2 calls a month. FWIW, my cell works off AT&T but won't make calls from this location altho they put in one of those fake tree towers 2 miles up our hill.

  3. You're not the Lone Ranger. I spent today with husband at key-turnover for an East Bay rental. Really pretty pristine clean-up. Just before leaving, I went to wash my hands in the kitchen sink. Oh, yeh, gotcha. A previous tenant had installed one of those damnable hose faucets which, of course, was caput. Not a biggie to replace, but I have never understood the allure of these sure-to-go-south appurtenances. Just give me a BIG single sink that will take a hotel pan, and a TALL faucet and I'm good. In fact, when we last "did" the kitchen, I had to go to a farm supply for the huge porcelain sink...WAY before these became de rigueur and available at every Lowes and Walmart.
  4. Several decades ago we and our college age son were in London at Christmas. I had in mind to have a traditional English holiday dinner at a favorite Knightsbridge hotel. We went to make reservations and I asked to seethe proposed menu. 75£ per person. I thanked them and turned to leave. Husband caught my arm and asked if I wasn't going to reserve. With grit teeth, "Are you out of your gourd? Do you know what we can buy for 225£?" We went to Harrod's food halls and were like kids in a candy store. A half a ham, charcuterie, cheeses, veg. I was planning on a Christmas cake, but reconsidered and bought two dozen petit fours, and on to the wine shop. Back at the apartment, we cooked up our hoard, donned the paper crowns from our christmas poppers and had a most memorable feast with change left over.
  5. All the fine print we ignore holds a wealth of reference.
  6. My 4th of July celebration was to do s serious job on the hood louvres (the easy part, just throw in dishwasher), 40" grease cup and its surrounds, not so easy and certainly yuckier. It really hurt me to grill a steak stovetop that night.
  7. Son and family are doing "stay at home" camp at our weekend place. I see they've imported shade and splash pools.
  8. No mention of his, to me, haunting Cinema Paradiso.

  10. Indeed. We have new neighbors moving in next door and Chuck has somehow become the block Mr. Congeniality. I am letting him have his fantasy while I wonder how we would serve such a group (20), no finger food, no passed tidbits, no open wine table, and certainly not least who would want to come! Boggles my mind.
  11. Interesting that these camps are still up. We underwrote out grand-kids camps and have been refunded fees. Actually, my Visa bill has been negative for two months!
  12. Great point. We always seem(ed) to learn something, experience something new, at our favorite, i.e., fun, places.
  13. We'd have to tell friends we bought them at a craft store!
  14. Have no idea. Whole Foods accepts them also, asks for them.
