I remember them, but I can't really remember the house they were in. The house did have exposed wires in the attic, though, on ceramic insulators.

SmileSometimes good news is good for anyone who will listen and try - especially if it's new for them.
Today? It's the results from a controlled study of folks living on a Mediterrainian Diet for a period of time. Been all over the news.
We've been huge fans of olive oil, fish, nuts, cous cous, fruits & veggies forever...but to now hear they're pushing 'science fact'? So great!
Worth taking to heart - such great and easy eating that any family can enjoy...but the health benefits?

Make sure it's the real thing, and not that cheap garbage being peddled.  I read a book on the olive oil industry. It says most o-o is blended with cheaper/lower quality oils (some not even olive.)
I switched to California Olive Ranch (I stock up on it when I find it on sale) & it's the best ever.  I wouldn't make garlic spaghetti without it.  The last of the Bertoli is being used for oiling the bread machine bearings...

How can they legally do that?   I've seen the blends, and they're clearly marked as blends.

It's a bigger problem in Europe.  The book is "Extra Virginity" by Tom Mueller (you can probably find it in a library.)  It's a nice eye-opener on the industry.
  Thought about growing a couple of olive trees myself, but I don't have space in the yard (barely found room for a coconut palm I'm trying to sprout.  Fingers crossed on that one.)

Damn near free Energizer batteries.

I've seen this deal in other stores this time of year for a few years, but today's deal was at Meijer. 

If you buy 2 8-packs of AA or AAA batteries, there's a little code on a little card inside each pack. Log on, enter 2 codes, and get 8 bucks sent to your paypal. (Or you can opt for a paper check via snail mail)

So Meijer has a deal this week where if you buy $20 worth of Energizer, you get $5 off your next trip. They also have a digital coupon for $.55 off one pack. There were two $1.00/one coupons in the paper.

So, bought 4 packs at $6.39 each, or $25.56. Got my $5 catalina for my next trip (now $20.56 for the batteries). Take off the $2.55 in coupons = $18.01. Fill out my little codes online and get my $16.00 in my paypal, and it's $2.01 for the batteries. Divide by 4 and the $6.39 packs of batteries cost $.50 each.

Wink

This is the third year I've done this, so I can say with all certainty that it's on the level. You're allowed to get up to 4 rebates per household (8 packs of batteries) and it's just about enough batteries to last Casa de Hillbilly all year.

^  Makes me wish I needed batteries.  Can't remember the last time I put batteries in anything.  Not even sure I remember how.
 
But that reminded me of the time I got a coupon for Corn Flakes.  I went to a store where it was on sale and which doubled coupons, so my Corn Flakes came out to something like -55 cents.  That was like 25 or 30 years ago.  Good times.

Well, I guess that I'm safe from those... I knew that I had to thank the wife and her girlfriends for something. Maybe I'll live forever, because that's one meal that I'll never turn down... Nice pic on that page though.

First time I've seen this video.

Something similar happened to me a long time ago. Probably around '85 or '86.

I was driving behind a semi on an expressway entrance ramp when suddenly a little gray blur came shooting across the road. It shot right under the back of the semi trailer from the left and ran head first into the inside of the right rear tire, bounced off and spun around a couple of times then just sat there kind of hunkered down in the middle of the road kind of dazed and not moving.

I stopped my car in the middle of the ramp, put my flashers on then jumped out and scooped him up. The people behind me could see why I stopped and nobody leaned on their horns or got impatient in any way.

I brought the poor little thing home with me even though I wasn't allowed to have pets in my apartment. He ran in the bathroom and hid behind the door. When I'd pick him up and pet him, he just sat there stiff and unresponding like he was either traumatized or he was just feral. Got him some food and water but he barely touched it.

Kept him for a couple of days, but I had to end up taking him to the Humane Society because I couldn't keep him.

I always wondered what happened to him.

I've been able to do that for dogs.  A few years back, I (and the little terrier) was lucky enough to have other drivers see us, and they all came to a halt.  People got out of their cars to help.
 
As far as the dog was concerned, I was his buzzkill.  He was having a great old time on his excellent adventure out in the road.  In fact, when I pulled him out from under the car where another guy and I were able to trap him, the little bastard bit me.  LOL
 
Another time, it was a pit bull in a very busy intersection.  I had two other guys help.  It was a chance, but the dog was a real sweetheart.

Re-reading my above post, I see I failed to clarify that it was a kitten. A very young one, too. Probably no older than 4 to 6 weeks. A little smaller even than the one in Tiz's video.

I hope somebody adopted it and gave it a good home.

At that age, any "feral" would've left him within a few days.  My Rocco was feral.  I got him when he was 6-8 weeks old.
 
In fact, when I got him and Capone, I Googled feral cats, and found a timeline on how long one could expect ferals of various ages to remain feral.

To be out running around near a four lane, divided highway at that age to begin with is what really made me figure he was feral.

I don't know if it was the trauma or the ferelity, but when I'd pick him up and pet him, he'd just sit there siff and unresponsive. Barely ate. Just hid behind the door in the bathroom.

I wish I could've kept him.

A few years later, I found an adult female cat that I took over to my folk's house. They wound up keeping her. Unbeknownst to us all, she was already pregnant when I found her.

She had about 3 or 4 kittens which my sister took all of.

They all lived out the rest of their natural lives, mom with my folks and kids with my sister & bil.

You know you are having a bad day when a bomb goes off on the plane you happen to be riding in.

One person was sucked out of the plane, hopefully it was the terrorist.
