Ah, yes. Thank you.

I would love to have that recipe, Andy. However, since I can't eat sweets anymore, I wouldn't want to be tempted! I love anything with apples!

Edit: Just saw that you posted it for anyone who wants it! duh! I think the lack of sugar is messing with my mind

I use 1/3 part each of white vinegar, lemon juice and water. I like how it smells

I'm waiting for DH to come back from the store. I started to make the cole slaw and realized I don't have enough sugar.

I had a neighbor who was an auto mechanic. He told me that when they want to clean parts of the engine, or remove rust, they soak the part In Coco Cola. The garage would buy more than 100 cases each month. Makes you wonder what it does to your stomach.

I'm kickin' back and drippin' off. Just spent some delightful time in the pool and I've got my feet up and a cold beer to cool my insides. Pretty relaxing.

It does nothing to your stomach, unless you already have an ulcer. Stomach acid is stronger than the acid in Coke.

Waiting...still not in any house, moving into a studio apartment on Wednesday. We've been unable to get the loan for the Main Street house because it is zoned commercial. So looking at another house a block away. We will be able to move in and "rent to own" at the end of this month. We can live in our house until we close on it, the lease for the people who are living there is over at the end of this month.

It has a deck, a garage, mature yard with a couple little trees. It's two bedroom and a HUGE! kitchen. Enough counter and cupboard space for making a Thanksgiving feast and be able to turn around. I'll be able toput everything away in the kitchen. Will take pics once we move in.
