I would have said, "Yes, I do since it's obvious you don't, somebody has to do it." But, then I am not the most subtle person when I get my dander up.

Compression Fx, no fun! I hope it gets better!

It's a pet peeve of mine that flood insurance is not covered under homeowner's insurance. That big storm up the east coast is sure to cause water damage and it just seems ridiculous that you have to buy separate insurance for it. Why is it any more likely for wind damage (which is covered) to occur than flood damage (which is not)? I bought flood insurance for years because it was required by the mortgage on the house and its location in a flood plain. But really, isn't any place it rains subject to getting excess water? Come to think of it, I don't think flood insurance is available if you're not in a flood plain - can't recall if that's true or not.

Sometimes I think insurance companies are idiots. You can't get earthquake insurance unless you live in an area with dangerous earthquakes. Hunh? Why won't they take my money for something low risk? Same stupidity as the flood plain thing.

Just spent 2 hours washing dishes after dinner. Psoriasis is acting up from all the chemicals, my poor hands look like lizzard scales "rolling my eyes" lol! How can 8 people dirty 5 basins full of dishes? I washed everything I used while cooking too and the men drank beer in bottles. My house looks like we had a frat party, getting stuck to my dining room table as I type. It must be beer and I didn't even have any. Think I'm going to bed now since it's 11:25 pm.

I am trying to jog my memory. Back in the 50's there was a major BIG flood from the Mississippi River. I remember seeing pictures in Life magazine taken from the air. Not only homes were lost, but crops, animals, etc. The water went inland on both sides of the river for miles. And because the Mississippi was so polluted at the time, it left the land unfit for growing crops. The insurance companies took a beating. Not just for covering the homes but also the crops. After that, they refused to give you flood insurance unless you moved and gave up your land and way of life. Very few folks were willing to do that. So when the next flood came, the government stepped in. That is when you got your insurance through the government. But they also had restrictions. So you can blame the government for the rules.

I have these silicone pot holders that work great. They allow you to hold the hottest cookware for a good bit of time with no heat transfer. I love them. I also have a 'seeing eye' thumb that can find the tiny little hole in the edge of the pot holder for hanging it on a hook. As a result, I now have a 'pot holder hole' sized blister on the tip of my thumb.

Ouch! Time to fix that hole...

You can file that with my putting out a cigarette with the tip of my finger. Not the smartest thing I have ever done.
