  1. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    I spent the early evening making another batch of salsa, so just tomato sandwiches once again, but we both love them
  2. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    Tomato sammy's and a salad.
  3. Good Books

    Did anyone else watch 60 Minutes tonight? The interview with David Cornwell, aka John leCarre' was really interesting. I didn't realize that he's 86 years old and his history and knowledge of spies. I'll be reading his latest, A Legacy of Spies soon. He also said at the end that he can't wait to start his new book. Good for him.
  4. New Business on Hamor Street?

    Next time in Brookville, we have to find this place. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Egg Prices Bottom Out

    I just read this thread.. Interesting to see the different opinions. I grew up on a farm and never ate an egg from a store. Then once out on my own, I changed to store bought eggs. Back 15 years or so ago, a friend gave hubby a dozen of fresh eggs. Oh my, I didn't think that I could eat them, what a difference! Then, I watched a documentary on some of these so-called farms. I couldn't eat chicken or an egg for a couple of months, it was so disgusting! Farm fresh is by far the best eggs, chicken, beef, pork, veggies, fruit, etc. We grow most of our veggies and freeze or can them. I do worry about Monsanto. More and more info is coming out about their products. Round Up is under the gun for being a carcinogen. I told hubby 5 or 6 years ago to not use it anymore. Now we use a homemade weed killer. We spoke to a farmer a few years ago that said he plants Monsanto corn, that when they buy the corn they have to sign that they will not sell the corn to anyone else or replant it. If they are caught doing it, they are in big trouble. Once the corn is planted, the fields can be sprayed with Round Up and it doesn't affect the corn at all. He also said that the corn is super sized compared to regular field corn. Here's the thing, they then feed the farm animals the corn grown that way. Then the farm animals are harvested and sold to consumers. It just creeps me out. We keep hearing about the rapid increase of so many health issues, it just makes you wonder.
  6. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    Probably the last outdoor get together of the summer for family and friends, since I think next Friday is the first day of fall. So we went all out. Hubby smoked a pork butt for pulled pork and he also grilled 4 beer butt chickens. I made tons of sides including regular potato salad, an Italian potato salad, caesar pasta salad, cole slaw, chopped salad, black bean and corn salad, baked beans and watermelon. Good times!
  7. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    We made Chicago dogs. We also tried something that I just heard about last week. Lentil pasta. Great reviews and I was leery, but it was really good. I also fried some summer squash and sliced a tomato.
  8. Good Books

    A novel, it's a really good story that I'd like to talk about but I don't want to ruin it for you or anyone else if you decide to read it. I agree about Calico Joe and Playing for Pizza!
  9. Good Books

    I read them as well and just last week finished Scottoline's One Perfect Lie, I think it's my favorite of hers so far.
  10. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    Garden tomato sandwiches on toast.
  11. Good Books

    I finished Camino Island, another thumbs up for John Grisham.
  12. Just a quick shout out. I agree with you most times as I'm sure you know. I just read the HS Football thread and thought that you were being put down pretty badly. I wanted to respond but I refuse to comment on anything that SM posts. She posted a couple of months ago that you know her very well and many of us think, no way. Maybe on-line but not in real life. Anyway, have a great night and a better tomorrow! Also, I wanted to thank you for being a good teacher, God bless you for that!

      Thank you-----I respect your comments on here.

      No---I do not know her well, but I have met her in person a few times.   People can be very different online than they are in person.   Honestly, I do not even know her name !!

      I think she just likes to argue and poke at people to get them to write back.   Thanks for your concern.

      Thanks for the response. Many of us that have been members for years think that she is nothing like she pretends to be. I just can't deal with her at all. Oh well, have a great night!

  13. Sandy Township Water/Sewage Bill

    But, Sandy doesn't provide sewer service, the City does. And I feel extremely lucky because we live way out and have our own well and septic system. So as an observer and from hearing relatives complaints, it seems that it's the City that is forcing the Township to raise costs. Even though the water and sewage plants are located in Sandy Two, they are owned by the City and the City controls the costs, not the Twp. I could be wrong but from what I've read in the CE after council meetings, it's all on the City.
  14. Happy Birthday laceymaree!

    Happy Birthday, I hope you had a great day!
  15. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    Hubby grilled delmonico's. I baked a couple of potatoes and made a chopped salad along with sautéed mushrooms, peppers and onions for the steaks.
