Did you "salt" FB? I have 3 friends and over 600 requests. I don't use FB.

When I was a kid the family meal was important. We came together in the morning for a little breakfast. A bit hurried but always a period together, however brief. Breakfast set the stage for where we were all headed that day. Our last minute sharing of hopes and dreams for the day, who was depending on whom or what to make it all happen - it all happened at the breakfast table. Whether it was little leauge practice, band or the dentist visit, Mom and dad orchestrated and pulled the strings around the morning meal. And then there was dinner.

Dinner time was sacred. And often it had something to with a little work. Did I pick the tomatoes or OKRA or whatever happened to be coming up out of the ground - if anything. Gardening was more a learning thing than a survival thing for us. But the meal and the family time was special and the sights and colors and dishes themselves were as much a part of the meal as the food or the discussion. Dinner was not a time for TV or music or anything but each other. It was a time for sharing and togetherness. A trip to Rays or A&W or Big Boys was a rare adventure. And then one day everything changed...
Toys became more prolific and fascinating. Instead of going outside to pick up a stick and play cowboys and natives, they made nice ones with holsters that made bang bang noises using those roll of caps. Probably the same ones they use in the movies 'cause they don't have to reload. Tonka Toys and other cast iron cars.

Barb, you are lucky if you get in a situation that requires getting out of. You just find a few people and have them lift it and carry it to the highway.

We definitely prefer to buy from a non-smoker, as both of us are non-smokers. But, if he never smoked inside the coach, it should be fine.

Will pm you now....

If you find one that has a slight smoke smell in it, go to an auto dealer and get what they use to remove the smoke smell. It works very well. Also, 2004 National Tripical and Pacifica for sure had diesel engines.

Go look at some on rvtrader.com. You'll find many brands and may different year models. Anything you but have inspected by a good RV Mechanic.

Hello fellow mutants. We've been very busy with family matters that need attention.

Just thought I would check in with you guys (not just lurk, read, and leave without comment).

Mary Ann and I hope that all of you are well or on the road to recovery.

We are headed to Florida at the end of October to deliver our MH to our campground's storage lot. We didn't like the experience of getting our MH out of Indiana with an actual temperature of -5. So we are storing it in Florida at a cheap rate and then driving the toad back and forth.

We will drive our MH through 2 more "virgin" states. That will mean that the MH has been in 47 of the 49 drivable states since September 2010. We need to hit NJ and Conn. on our way to the Canadian Maritimes next summer.

Travel easy.

We are hoping to get up there 2015, did west last summer.. So hope east next summer
But i am still waiting to see where and when the GC will be.....
I hate to do too much planning ahead, well, thinking, no actual reservations anymore.... Until the RVM sets the festivities...
Would hate to be on the opposite side of the country....
Even a tentative date would help......
Hint hint

Not yet, decision should be made by December, Nashville, Tn front runner but that could change.

The trip East sounds good for 2016!

I will be working through all of the suggestions I have and trying to cross reference mutant migration patterns in December as well. I appreciate everyone's patience with this. I really can't wait to dig in on the planning myself... but there is just so much happening it's like a swarm of bees around my head at the moment.

Glad to hear our great leader has been cleared by yet another specialist (EENT). All a part of the puzzle, soon to be completed and cleared for the next great spread of pieces to assemble. Soon!

Marty, fresh kombucha has been assembled with vinegar from that last batch. Will it work this time? Will the scoby be well fed? Will the sun rise in the morning? Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of ... "As the Demijohn Turns".

Cheers!
In the future... you don't need to add vinegar if you keep about a cup of the previous kombucha batch back with the scoby to start your new batch... just add the fresh cooled sweet tea! (edit here... oh, now I get it, the kombucha that went too far...I needed about 2 more sips of coffee for more optimal brain function...LOL!)

My new ferment adventure has begun... I am learning now on my own with the internet's help how to make a ginger bug. I think it might be a better base to make home brewed Root beer, but I love ginger ale and ginger beer too... and you can make all sorts of sodas with it apparently... I have a friend who is pregnant and has diabetes, and has awful "too much" nausea... so she has to be very careful and that is the catalyst for this new epicurean adventure.

Ah, but the vinegar IS my previous boocha! That's why this is an adventure!

Mum Cutter used to keep a ginger beer plant in her kitchen. It was a similar thing to your ginger bug, maybe, that had to be fed, kept under the sink, and the "beer " bottled. The. "Beer" was a soft drink.

Ginger is good for settling stomachs, isn't it, so perhaps your "bug" will be helpful for your friend. Good luck!

Cheers, and keep me posted, willya, as I will you.

Crystallized ginger helps as well... But it does contain sugar, so friend with diabetes might not can nibble on it... Surprisingly garlic helps when i have nausea from post gall bladder......
