Me, too. And that’s the second article in two days I’ve seen here at LH. (There may have been more.) Sort of in line with this article’s premise, slideshows suggest a downward trajectory. I already spend much less time here than I used to. If this keeps up, I might stop bothering at all.

The SC does not create new laws. They rule about constitutionality of existing state or federal actions/laws. For it to be criminal at a federal level, it would take Congress to do that. All the more reason to be diligent about who we elect to the legislatures - both state and federal.

Yes. But my primary point was that “even though” was grammatically inconsistent with what she was trying to say.

Even though there are still technically a few more weeks of summer, the high temperatures and humidity haven’t gone away (at least in New York). Read more

I live in CA. The fires started this way over the last few years have all been - so far and with the less frequent exception of 4th of July - gender reveal parties.

Me, too. Plus it makes it easy to pull it out to hang dry. I don’t think any of them would survive the dryer although I haven’t tested.

Yes! I’ve been married - well more than once - and used all my names in the outgoing message as in “You’ve reached the Smith, Jones, and Johnson residence. We are unable to answer...” I wanted that house to sound busy and never empty.

I’m retired now. And while I love the strategies that these women are using (and the Read more

Right. And LA County has doubled down on its Stay At Home orders. It’s against regulations to leave home except for essential activities. And socializing with people from other households is prohibited as well. And as you said, there wouldn’t be anything for your cousin to do - even the libraries are closed. It’s true Read more

I’m at sea level, but I know that the King Arthur Flour site has an article on high altitude baking.

Even with Instacart and curbside pick up, I couldn’t get eggs for 3 weeks. Got them with one order a week and a half ago, but not the next. It’s really a crap shoot. I’m very glad that for a while now I’ve kept powdered eggs in my pantry for convenience. No eggs to eat, but I can bake.

I had the same thought. Typically they run about $35. So one person with an overdraft and four people with no fees at all, the average is $7. So it skews the average so much that it’s hard to suss out maintenance and ATM fee averages.

A thief will run it as a credit card, but it will still drain your checking account until the bank deigns to refund it. They have a couple of months to decide if they will (and they don’t always.) Meanwhile you need to pay rent and buy groceries. An actual credit card, however, does not touch your cash, and any delays Read more

Right? The act was intentional. And the act (battery, at a minimum) is a crime.

Thanks, A.A. I was already planning to remove some stuff from the freezer that would be fine for a while at room temp. (I keep an inventory of whole grain flours and nuts in the freezer.) But I had not thought about the millions of condiments. I need to do that, too.

And may I add the same ire for people behind me in the grocery store who seem to think that pushing their cart into me or breathing over my shoulder while I’m paying will get them out sooner?

Yes. Blocking the aisle actually slows down deplaning. It’s much faster deplaning by row, plus people in the next deplaning row can actually get their bags out of the overhead.

AND in their zeal to anticipate the light, their reaction time to the actual changing of the light is pitifully slow. Every. Time.

Me either. I retired and refuse to wake up early enough to get there before it gets crowded. So, yes just a little more than 2 years for me, too. And I love TJs. But I’ve done just fine without it.

I saw a lot of that in my last career. As GrayHays notes, the SSA will almost always settle the amount and accept a payment plan for the rest. But I agree, as a tax-paying citizen and someone who hates to see that kind of stress put on people who can least afford it, it is horrifying.
