Kay, that sounds so nice. I'm glad you two were able to sit on your porch and view the eclipse with your neighbor. I ended up with a pretty good view through a break in the clouds, but I wish I could have turned the streetlights off.

Addie, many of us here are also 'old' enough to have seen many eclipses in our day. That doesn't stop us from wanting to see them whenever we can. You can probably find videos online if you want to view it, Taxy posted one.

Cheryl, I don't know if my link will work tomorrow. It wasn't video, it was live.

I wish I could have seen it. Clouds and trees blocking my view.

The video plays Taxy. It's almost 5 hours long to see the whole event.

That's a great idea, Taxy!

When I do my major shopping, what has always messed me up is when I knock something to the floor and have to pick it up. My back goes into "scream" mode and the rest of that day's major shopping is very painful.

I decided last month that my back was more important than whatever is on the floor so I just left it there. It wasn't easy to ignore it, but I felt I had to for the sake of my back.

With a grabber, not only could I have picked up the item on the floor, but it would be helpful for when the items I want are on the bottom shelf.

Lots of the lower priced items I prefer are down there and it hurts bending over that far.

Thanks, Taxy!

Had to buy a new vacuum cleaner.The parts I would have had to buy for the old one was close enough in price that it would just be easier just to replace it.

I got one use out of it.Worked great.Really impressed with how easy it's been to clean.Replacement parts are much cheaper to.Got a good deal on it.

I let my son use it for his room.Mind you it's only been used once.
I swear it took him exactly 10 minutes to break it.Saw that coming.They never get along.

So I'll see what exactly the problem is with it.Try and fix it.
If not he's getting the bill attached to his rent.

It is under warranty by the manufacturer.In my house I have a Mom warranty.Don't inconvenience me.

Take it right back to the store and demand a replacement.

I bought it off Amazon

Amazon.com - Eureka Airspeed Unlimited Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum, Copper -

It worked fine for him until he used the small attachment to get under his bed.Hubby came in and noticed that the beater bar was no longer turning.

They turned it off, then back on.Still doesn't turn. I'll check the belt see if it needs replacing.If that doesn't do it.It goes back.

Some vacuums turn off the beater when attachments are in use. Also, make sure the connection is solid.

Just got back from the grocery store were I bought a package of Nestle Toll House Pumpkin Spice chips. They are a limited edition. On the back of the package there are recipes for Pumpkin Spice Molasses Cookies and Pumpkin Spice Blondie Cookie Bar. Can't wait to try them.

I will be shopping in a couple of days. Will definitely look for them. The molasses cookies sound like heaven. Does the recipe call for any ingredients that one would not have normally in the pantry? I have molasses, but not pumpkin spice.
