  • 8 - Compulsive Eating (Overeaters Anonymous)

    11/10/2019 5:10:27 AM, by MAKEITWORKIT

    Well this is a different kind of change - I've been a member of Overeaters Anonymous in the past but find it doesn't sit well with my Christian faith. I like some of the 12 steps - they are helpful for me. For instance Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over food — that our lives had beco... Read more

  • Instapot corned beef (brisket) and cabbage!

    11/7/2019 6:38:24 PM, by CTUPTON

    My first time making this in the instapot. First cook the beef. Remove it and then cook the veggies in the liquid--in the instapot, too. It smells great! I removed the liquid from the beef and let the fat rise. I could slim it off before cooking the veggies. I will try to take a photo w... Read more

    WHAT RELIGION IS YOUR BRA? A man walked into the ladies department and shyly walked up to the woman behind the counter and said, 'I'd like to buy a bra for my wife.

    Hubby had a 7:30 am hospital test appointment today! I knew it would be a hard thing to do. I had never been to that hospital. I kinda knew I'd have trouble finding the exact place to go in.

    10/26/2019 5:47:26 AM, by CTUPTON

    I am "cheating" by using someone else's list. 24 But I think I agree with most books on this list. I actually never was interested in the "Twilight" series. I loved "Atlas Shrugged" and I have read it several times. "Davinci code" I liked. "The Alchemist" was pretty boring as I remember. Toward th... Read more

  • A 'very hungry caterpillar' kind of day.

    10/23/2019 8:55:11 PM, by CAT_2009

    So, today was a munchy day. A 'very hungry caterpillar' kind of day. Perhaps because it was an unexpected work-from-home day (automotive drama), and I hadn't planned for that. The foods that normally satisfy me just weren't doing the trick. And away from work - I didn't have my 6 flights of sta... Read more
