   Gerty posted on Crafts  Guess what I found while doing some internet shopping?...camo yarn !! I am in the process of crocheting scarves for all the hunters in the family.

This is fun and turns out to be quite a conversation piece.

   Gerty posted on Coffee Klatch  I don't know where to post this, but here goes. This nonsense about Trump's LEWD tape is so much ado over nothing!! Is it OK--NO! Is it reason for Mr. Trump to abandon his reach for the presidency? Absolutely not! Do these people not recognize frat-talk when they hear it?

At any rate, weigh this on one hand and a Hillary presidency on the other. Trump still trumps.

   Balogreene  Gerty, I have heard worse from women and gays. It is deplorable, but he admitted, when she turned him down, he walked away.

   MeiDei  Compare that to Hillary's mouth .. "effen Jewish b**ards" and all those comments about cops being pigs as well as those 8 listed over on the mother page via Breitbart.

   Gerty posted on Pet Peeves  You know.....I am a big user of Google. It wasn't always that way. But more and more I find I need clarification of things I thought I already knew! So, Google is a good thing.


When they choose to ignore Easter after glorifying all kinds of silly things, they have gone way too far for my taste!!

Show some class, Google! Recognize the BIG holidays for a majority of people in the USA!!

   Gerty posted on Main Page The Lobby  I've been out of the loop of late. Someone please help: What happened to Megan Kelly? I've tuned in two nights now and she has been replaced by someone else.

Is this the Trump effect?

   Bettijo  I used to be a big fan of Megan Kelly. I was thrilled when she got her own show and I cheered when she got moved to prime time. But now I have lost all respect for her and have not watched her since the presidential debate. Believe it or not, I switch to CNN at 9:00, but go back to FOX at 10:00 for Hennity. I read on a blog that FOX was letting her go because of "unprofessional photographs" of a younger Megan. Don't know and don't care.

   Gerty posted on Main Page The Lobby  I just received news to my e-mail that Walmart is having a GIANT rollback event. Wow, I can hardly wait to see what Christmas-in-July deals await me.

Never mind. Just picked out one item for a test run: Set of 3 Sterlite storage draws $16.86. That, my friends, represents the savings of $1.02.

I kid you NOT.

   Safetydude  Well, I don't frequent Walmart but for a saving like that I had to go to a Walmart store to check it out. Guess what,
I still don't frequent Walmart.

   Gerty  Mr. Dude, I really enjoy my trips to Walmart! If nothing else, the sheer volume of merchandise is staggering! When the opportunity presents itself, I go to a smaller Walmart in a sleepy town in southern Conn. I have never seen one of the "Walmart Characters" displayed on Facebook there and the help could not be more helpful or friendlier. I like to think good ole Sam Walton would have liked it here.

   Safetydude  A bit of random rambling about Walmart, just for you Gerty.

Many, many years ago I was a member of B-1B bomb wing stationed on Robins AFB, located in south-central Georgia. The B1 was part of Carter's START treaty with the Soviets and periodically a Russian inspection team would arrive to check that we were living up to our part of that treaty.
I was a member of one of several teams that escorted the Russians around base.
However, most of the time what the inspectors really wanted to do was get the inspections over as early as possible and go shopping in our mega-stores; Walmart, K-Mart, Target,etc in Warner Robins and Macon.
I spent more time sitting in parking lots waiting for my Soviet 'guests' than I did showing them the base facilities on their inspection agenda.

   Gerty posted on Pet Peeves  OK!! Where is it? What have you done with it!?!

I'm talking about my precious GARLIC!

Yes, you read that right. I am distraught. I am not complaining about the 79-99 cents cost of a head of garlic----I'm talking about the taste. Some one has robbed the taste out of every clove of garlic while we were not looking.

'fess-up! Who did it?

   Balogreene  I use a lot more than I used to. We use fresh, and press it, or Kel has a dish she shreds it on. Is it because in the olden days we hardly ever used garlic (being Scandinavian and English ), and now can't think of any savory I don't use it in? Did it just seem stronger because it was new to us?

But, have you noticed, as you are sautéing it, you don't get that lovely aroma so much anymore?

   MeiDei  I wonder if the drought in CA has something to do with it; I think Merced is known to be the garlic capital of the world. The garlic in the stores seems to mostly come from China. A head goes bad on me too quickly so I've gone with the little tubs of peeled individual cloves, they're fragrant but less than usual - or are our noses less sensitive?

   Gerty  Thanks for answering. I was beginning to think I was just losing one or more of my senses.

I am convinced that it is in the cultivation of the garlic. I am determined to buy some garlic sets and plant them in my own garden. I understand it is done in the Fall. Wish me luck!

   BirdsNest  Yes, plant in the Fall. Get some good local garlic if you can or cave in and order from a local place.For you Gerty this might be a good place to order from

And yes much of the garlic in stores comes from China so be cautious when you buy. Your own garlic is so much better. Try to grow it. It's fun.Our friend in CT sent us some monster bulbs from a local guy in her area. The individual cloves are as big as elephant garlic. Can't wait to plant them.

   Gerty posted on Main Page The Lobby  In tune with Miss Bettijo's post below, Drudge reports this AM that Farrakhan demands that the USA flag needs to be put down.

Rush is right!

   Gerty  I think anyone who wants to put down the Stars and Stripes should be convicted of high crimes---further, the penalty should be EXILE for life.

We should give them free passage to any country of their choice or any country who will have them--which ever comes first.
