Thanksgiving Essentials

Updated 02-05-2013 at 05:49 AM by bigbearfla58 (Roadmap for Thanksgiving 2013)




Saturday, Octobear 20, 2012 8:22 a.m. Thanksgiving is only 32 days from today I hope your Thanksgiving preparations are underway. Getting the very first cold front here in FL going to be 62 degrees tomorrow morning. I'm having friends over tomorrow for test batch of corn bread and breakfast. Also have my foodie friends coming over Sunday, Novembear 11, 2012 for my annual side dish supper.

Friday, September 2, 2011 2:08 p.m. Every year at this time I sit down and start to make my Thanksgiving preparations. I begin by re-seasoning my cast iron skillet. I'm checking to see what I do or don't have in my kitchen cabinets. I have two lists I make one for the ice box and one for the pantry.

Here are my lists of Thanksgiving Essentials to help you prepare for Thanksgiving Day.

Pantry Items:

Baking Soda (check date on box)
Baking Powder (check date on box)
Corn Starch (check date on box)...

I do believe in Santa!

Rent, insurance, tuition, books, heat, electric, gas, the amount of debt I was in was overwhelming to me. I think I was at my lowest at Christmas time, everyone else on break rushing home to family and me with no one close left alive and nowhere to go, no money to spare. I couldn’t even afford a tree, I was bitter and just feeling horrible and then my car breaks down. I really was in a bad way. I had no money to even get it towed it was on the side of the highway. I was in the car crying and a police offer (a Michigan State Policeman) approached I didn’t even hear his car pull

Piles of Christmas

Posted 08-31-2011 at 10:41 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

We work on Christmas year round. We plan our site features and do our upgrades during the "off" season. Of course, to us and to many of you who even venture so far as to read MMC blogs, we're here everyday and we celebrate Christmas every day.

But we know that come Labor Day we are pretty much done for the year with any kind of major remodel work or big projects. From Labor Day through Christmas Eve we roll out all the big projects we've been working on but for the most part the real work of that is all done.

Except for one thing -- and that's what the rest of the world is working on for Christmas.

Try as we might we just can't seem to get folks to tell us what they have coming out for Christmas until this time of the year. And this week it really started in earnest as book publishers, website operators, musicians and movie studios are all contacting us to see if they can share with the community here what they've got coming out.

Why I love my family

Posted 08-02-2011 at 07:57 AM by elf bazaar

On Saturday my mum had the most awful accident at home. She fell top to bottom down the stairs knocked herself out, broke her hand and fractured her lower spine and hip, she banged her head and the blood went everywhere.
Thank god I was in the hall and saw her fall, within 3 minutes I had her in the car and up to the local hospital within the hour she was taken by ambulance to the big hospital in a town half an hour away.
I drove ahead of the ambulance and was there waiting for her when she arrived. I was by her side all the time and when they said she could leave I drove her home, I got her settled and comfortable.
Since then I have done everything in the house possible to make her long road to recovery comfortable.

For the past nine months a family have been living with us, the father had an "accident" and the bathroom floor flooded through to the kitchen below and did some damage. two days later when the loss adjuster had still not...
