I am very tired of seeing this creepy Coronavirus molecule. It's floated around our tv's, newspapers, internet for almost a year now. It got on my nerves early on and the constant showing of this thing has never ended. I... Continue reading

Now here is a story headline I did not expect. A new definition of Spring. "Today Is the First Day of Meteorological Spring" I have no idea what this even means and it showed up with another story about Daylight... Continue reading

I was reading a post put up by someone who was having trouble keeping his lawnmower running. It would start, then quit. He wanted some advice. Now, let me say up front, I have years of lawnmower work. I've cut... Continue reading

I believe you're correct Frank. The Willoughby's, were lifetime members of Holy Cross and the Schultze's I think,may have Willoughby family connection. I do know Carl's daughter Lisa and her son Jacob work there every day.

Dale and I decided it was too nice a day to sit around the house and headed over to the Willoughby Farm in Collinsville. This is a fantastic place, a farm right in the middle of the city, and laid... Continue reading

Here is something I did not know. Shocking? Right? Well there are many many uses for those little moisture absorbing silica gel things we get in many items we buy. Most of the time we just toss them out. They... Continue reading

Well, I just ordered one more thing and for once it has nothing to do with cleaning. I've been curious about air fryers for some time and have looked at them online and read reviews many times. Once in Ace... Continue reading

Since New Year's I've gotten into the jigsaw puzzle habit. I have to confess, I feel guilty doing something which seems like a total time waster and live with Dale who does not see the point in this at all.... Continue reading

We made it yesterday. Received our first Covid Vaccine and we are very thankful to Memorial Hospital and BJC who are doing a yeoman's job. They are so organized from the moment you drive into the parking lot to the... Continue reading

This must have been around for a while, but its the first time I've heard of it. Dishwasher tablets have amazing cleaning power in many things beyond your dishwasher. The tablet needs to be the pressed powder type, not the... Continue reading

Honestly this sounds like one of the best ideas yet. We've all fought to open something that came tucked into the hardest plastic ever and not for nothing named a clamshell. I've had to pry open these things for something... Continue reading

I totally agree Frank. They seemed to have had no plan unlike other counties.

Since the Covid thing began and we have been pretty much tucked into our house, I've noticed a lot of things that our house needed and many it didn't. The ease of getting something has had me living the "immediate... Continue reading

The St. Louis area has had a lot of crashes due to the snow and other weather. But for some reason there has not been any mattresses or ladders falling onto the highways lately. A good thing. Continue reading

With the big snowfall and single digit temperatures we've suffered through this week, one thing has helped us get around if we absolutely had to. That is the salt brine street departments and highway workers put on the roads. This... Continue reading

I've lost a lot of sleep recently worrying about the difficulty in getting the Covid Vaccine. I've tried so many places with no result and have had to listen to news reports of counties adding more and more people to... Continue reading

With this arctic freeze and snow we've had this week, it goes without saying the local news stations will be all over it with information we need. There are stories about how to keep your pipes from freezing or how... Continue reading

Late Sunday afternoon we were driving home after spending a bit of time with Connor on his birthday. When we got to the intersection of Arsenal and some cross street, we saw a lot of action ahead. Something on fire.... Continue reading

I discovered this around Christmas at the Edwardsville Wild Birds Unlimited. I've also been to the Swansea Wild Birds Unlimited. There is at least one in St. Louis. I was skeptical about this seed keeping squirrels away, but boy does... Continue reading

It's mixed seed with hot pepper. The birds aren't bothered by it, they love it. Squirrels hate it. Here is where I get it. https://order.wbu.com/edwardsville/bird-food/hot-pepper

We are really getting a bout of frigid winter temperatures and to top it off, we're in for a lot of snow on top of it. I mean to say, it is seriously cold and the snow just keeps on... Continue reading

Linda I checked walgreens early this morning because I saw a notice the two collinsville stores will have vaccines on Monday. We tried and tried, but in the end, we could not make an appointment because they did not have the 2 doses and would not do just the first.
