    Is cedar block really effective in repelling moth?

    Cedar and Lavender are great moth repellants.

    Our First Visitor!

    After tinting the windows, a week of having the window bird feeder, and tossing feed out onto the driveway, one brave little sparrow took a chance and found all the noms! You can watch the video here. Other than that, been soaking up info on aquaponics. Got the fish tank supplies coming this...

    Indoor Home Garden

    Dragon & TLady: They're such fascinating little buggers. The things they do. This is a topic I could go on and on about all day long, too. TL, Kota went through a bit of depression too when our Cougar left us. At the time I didn't know about this one product by Jackson Galaxy (My Cat From Hell...

    Eating based on the food pyramid vs Mediterranean

    Well, you know, you couldn't exactly go into a grocery store for Mammoth Tenderloin. I'm sure that had a little something to do with the shorter lifespan.

    LOL...I know how it goes. One: Kota (15yrs old, bob tail) is not a jumper. I doubt even catnip growing on the counter is motivation enough. Tiger (5yr old Siamese) might attempt it ONCE. Both of them know countertops are strictly off limits and won't do it.

    Thank you, Larry. The "aquaponics" is more like what The Man has in mind and I'd love to know how you built your setup and what kinds of fish you use. All the good details, if you're willing to share. I figure if I can create something on a small scale, The Man, whose a structural engineer...

    Eating based on the food pyramid vs Mediterranean

    I've given up on the word "diet". It is banned from this household. Any "diet" a culture ate was, indeed, a lifestyle. In the archaeological sense of the word, what kind of diet did these ancient people have? What was available? It certainly wasn't the fad-related definition of "diet" we have...

    Indoor Home Garden

    So...for a few years now we've been "wishlisting" the greenhouse we'd like to turn our back room/porch into. Don't want to do the whole glass walls thing, but we do want to do raised beds and some kind of self-sustaining hydroponic system (The Man wants to use fish). I keep telling him...

    Second Breakfast

    I would agree with this.

    Eating based on the food pyramid vs Mediterranean

    Before the liver transplant, I would eat fairly clean (making much of my own stuff...but then prednisone happened and everything went out the window). My liver doctor introduced me to the Mediterranean way of eating, which brought into focus what I was instinctively trying to do. If you're ever...

    What's Your Favorite Way of Storing/Organizing Recipes?

    GG: If I waited for a rainy day here in Vegas, I'd never get anything done. Rainy days are the days I become a total slug, binge comfort movies and listen to the thunderstorms. In the winter, I light up a fire in the fireplace. Alas, today is not that day. But...yes, I did discover those nifty...

    What's the last movie you watched?

    Roku's the best. Cut the cable cord over two years ago, got an antenna and Roku and haven't looked back once.

    KG: I'll have to look them up. Hey, do you happen to have a recipe for haupia?

    What are you doing?

    Yeah, the quality must have changed. You know how that goes. You got yourself a good one!

    What are you doing?

    Yes! I got one last week at $1.95/lb. Wish I could have gotten more. We chop it into thirds and then break those down as needed. We used to have a Food Saver too. Then we invested in a commercial grade vacuum sealer (like the one on Chopped...can't remember the name off hand). Best thing we...

    What's Your Favorite Fresh Salmon Recipe?

    *face-palm* Poke. Of course. Mahalo, KG. DCS: The scallop recipe sounds good, unfortunately I'm horribly allergic to the little buggers. All other shellfish? No problem.

    What's Your Favorite Way of Storing/Organizing Recipes?

    *glances up for the first time in several hours* Got lost in Paprika. Bought it outright. Love it. So, so easy and a perfect way to waste...um...while away the hours on a Saturday afternoon.

    What's Your Favorite Way of Storing/Organizing Recipes?

    TL: I do intend to try them both. What I liked about Paprika is I can download the app straight to my Mac and it's a one time buy. Don't get me started on subscriptions for programs, Adobe soured me on that. I was so angry when they switched over. Anyhoo, I'm going to do the 30 day trial and...

    Oh, I like that one, GG, very nice. I'll have to add it to the Wish List. Thank you.

    What's Your Favorite Way of Storing/Organizing Recipes?

    Lately, I've been taking screen shots or downloading PDFs and I'd like to have a physical way of storing them. Haven't decided on that system yet. What do you all do/use?
