I saw a recipe for fruit cake that was a century old. It had none of the crap that goes into one now-a-days. It was a basic cake with dried cherries,currants,blueberries and raisins. Then it was drenched in brandy or rum.
I’m thinking the liquor helped preserve it lol

It sounds good though

Been cutting and drying my herbs. Did freeze some in olive oil and some in just water. Those silicone ice cube trays are the best invention ever lol

Having a bumper crop of herbs this year for some reason. My sage and both types of chives are huge this year and the different thymes I have are growing like crazy. I’ll have plenty for storage

Drained the pool we’re selling. Once its taken down we plan on building a double walled root cellar since it will be above ground. Hopefully with the large pine tree and the house so close to it , it will manage to stay a cool temp for storing apples, carrots, late season cabbage and potatoes,etc

Making a run to sam’s club sometime before the end of the month. Will stock up on more rice, seasonings,cleaning supplies and paper products

Did buy more storage containers for the supplies we have. Now is the time what with school starting up. One month to go here so everything from furniture,small appliances,office supplies,even some health and beauty aids are on sale. Plan on taking advantage and getting printer paper. Getting low. Also need more ink for the printer and plan to buy extra

Hubby is lucky that he isn’t “hairy”. I can cut his hair if need be with scissors as for shaving I have enough cheap razor blades ( $1 a pack/10 in a pack) to cover him for about 5 years or so. A razor lasts me for a good while

I already cut his hair with an electric clipper

Getting back on the subject…..

I got a reply from the webmaster. Apparently its because I have satellite internet which is funny because I’ve had it over 10 years now and this problem just started yesterday but whatever lol

I chuckled at the part of the reply that said I should got to some kind of “radio” internet( what ever that is) and that the webmaster knows the name of a good company…….seriously? lmao

I figure its probably something to do with an update of Firefox or something

I was having trouble logging in with both Firefox and Opera so I sent a message via the main website to the webmaster.
I tried one last time from the main site and this time I didn’t check mark the “remember me” box and I was able to get on the forum/ message board.
If someone would be nice enough to let the webmaster know I’ve figured out the problem somewhat I would appreciate it.
It will be a pain having to log in every time tho but *shrugs*

Thanks in advance

Been picking quarts and quarts of tart cherries. Freezing them for now after I pit them to use later in jams and other condiments for meats and such. Also will do up some jars for pies and cobblers. I have 2 trees just full of them this year

Bought 30 more cattle panel fencing and 60 T posts to replace the old fencing around the property that was here when we bought it

Have new eye prescription and will get glasses off the net as extras/backups this week

Doctor’s appointment this week for checkup

Also will buy a case of freeze dried meats this week. Just have to compare prices on some sites

Mary Land is a communist state so they are probably laying low. As for us we stay in the “gray” as much as we can. We’re surrounded here by libs who would definitely make things sticky for us.
I know there are others in the BC area but who don’t advertise it if ya know what I mean
