What a pretty house. I love those rockers on the porch.

I agree, you expect to see Tim and Richard Smucker coming down the street with a little red wagon filled with jam!

Lovely house, MrsLMB, I could spend some time in the porch rockers.

I learned that coconut oil makes a great all-over moisturizer. I'd run out of my Walgreens high test, and the coconut oil works great, for much cheaper!

Same with the coconut oil, though I think I'd prefer the avocado....

I just thought it was funny we were both doing edible moisturizing...I also have an olive oil treatment in my hair.

That's very similar to the home I grew up in MrsL! Loved that place. Ours was green and white but it had that wonderful, deep porch. My BFF and I played dolls out there when it would rain and wouldn't have to move unless the winds blew really hard from the east. New home front porches are rarely that deep.

So Spike was wondering where that lake in Massachusetts was located. The one with the really long name. So we googled it.

Lake Chaubunagungamaug - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yeah, it does have a meaning. It is an Indian word.

My father could rattle that off the tip of his tongue whenever anyone would ask.

But why should you have to" insist hard enough". If his mother had brought hm up properly he'd do it as a matter of course.

Domestic job sharing isn't new. My late father, born in 1919, did what needed to be done. My mother worked full time in the family business so if she was out Dad would cook, wash up, vacuum carpets, do ironing, or do whatever needed doing when it needed doing. He wouldn't do the gardening though - hated it - and was useless at braiding my hair when I was little - he was all fingers and thumbs! He had no problems with his status as a "real man" and he believed that marriage was a partnership and that that partnership had to be fair. He learned by example from his mother and father.

Sorry to be late back to this discussion. I've been organising a horse show.
