   Gerty posted on Coffee Klatch  I am sooo late to this. Miss Balogreene, please accept my apologies for not seeing this important news sooner and all my prayers for your complete recovery. I am lighting a candle for you right now!

   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 I've tuned in two nights now and she has been replaced by someone else.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?

   Straitpath  I have noticed this in garlic powder bought from the spice rack.

   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!

   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.

   Gerty posted on Coffee Klatch  Miss Bettijo, I need to comment on your great closing sentence at the end of your comment below.

"It does not cost anything to be considerate."

Good for you!! Aside from my parents and Grandmother, I was taught by a boat-load of religious teachers. Year after year the message was taught: You don't have to have a million dollars to act like you do! Of course, they were referring to the positive aspects of being brought up in a wealthy environment. I have a small list of things that don't cost money along with consideration.

Thank some one for any compliment given in the form of words or gifts. You don't even need the cost of a postage stamp today---use any form of e-mail.
You don't have to be the Queen of England to eat neatly.
Prince William's wife Kate, always appears 'fully dressed' and in good taste. It doesn't take a lot of money to cover up.
While not costing a penny, you will 'spend' some time with an elderly person...just making some small conversation and a good part to their day.

   Gram77  You know Gerty, I had a good life while growing up in the 30s with my great grand parents and a bunch of relatives. We all lived on a large farm and all worked hard. All these people taught me to reach out to those who were hurting and hungry and to give whenever we could. It seems perfectly natural and normal to me even today to help, to say something nice, and to share. Doesn't cost a penny to be nice. Frankly, I think it's a great feeling.

   Balogreene  I had immigrant (Norway and Sweden ) great grandparents. Mom remembers, during the depression, one of the grandfathers worked for the WPA, the Salvation Army (was a preacher, not sure he got paid ), shipbuilding on the Great Lakes, and anything else he could do. His wife always told my mom (her granddaughter ), It doesn't cost much to stay clean, only a bar of soap, and you can make that yourself!

   Gerty posted on Coffee Klatch  Don't know to which wall this belongs.

Since we don't have a "Sick to my stomach to see" wall, I'll just place it here.

Upon removing the tags from a new mattress cover, I discovered that it was made in the USA---with materials imported from China!! It made me sick to my stomach to see!
