    Orchids in my garden

    We have a few, but nothing as spectacular as yours, Queenie. Nice work and well said!

    Be vigilant with your possessions

    Sad topic, good advice. I'm sure most of us all have some ugly stories. After some lessons learned hard our first year, it's been zero tolerance on "borrowing without first asking", outright theft and dishonesty, since. I never imagined that we'd have to blacklist a few "friends" and even family members, some immediate, with our subdivision security gatehouse. It was definitely a downer to the good life we love and enjoy here, but hey, bad actions have consequences, and I'll be damned if I'm going to live like a security guard inside a Ft. Knox. Yep, tough love, set crystal clear expectations from the get-go, choose your friends wisely, etc., there's a ton of good advice on this forum. Some might sound insensitive and selfish on the surface, but at least consider it all, nonetheless. Trust is hard earned, works for me, YRMV.
  3. IDK, maybe that might also depend on what type of other men you hang with? You know, kind of goes to JGF's quote "choose friends wisely, some are not what they appear to be".

    Now at S&R

    Yeah, I sometimes miss the convenience of picking up everything you've mentioned here - waltz into any TX Kroger and there it all is, Pace, Trappey's, Mezzetta, La Victoria, Herdez, San Marcos, La Costena, the entire Frito Lay line, etc., ha. We're gonna have to check out one of those S&Rs some day, are all locations pretty much stocked the same? Yeah, I know, YRMV, heh!

    How many do as I did...do

    Dittos, Steve. That's a pretty cool blog, too, Jack.

    Core Pacific $ Changer New Rules

    But...that's a little better than having to actually leave the bank to find copy services elsewhere, right?

    How many do as I did...do

    I've actually wondered about that, too, but never lost any sleep over it.

    Core Pacific $ Changer New Rules

    Yeah, they are often quirky. I once had a $50 bill they wouldn't even touch because it had an almost microscopic tear in one of the corners. Asawa handles any $ changing we might need by herself, I don't even know where she goes, heh! I trust, but verify...

    My 4 Moods .....

    ...and I don't know whether to shit or wind my watch?

    Yeah, and it's kinda fun watching those little suckers swarm the bait like pigs at a trough for a couple of days, then heh, heh!

    This stuff works pretty well, too. We are still using some we threw in a BB box a couple years ago. Since the active ingredient is borax, it sounds pretty much like JP's DIY recipe, ha.
  12. Well, there's assistance, benefits and some Federal programs, too, and they can petition for family members to join them. IDK, that might be valuable to some, but now we're clearly OT.
  13. All of the other rights and benefits of US citizenship. Google "benefits of US citizenship over green card" or something similar, that will give you an idea.
  14. You are indeed correct, Dave. If traveling on a USA passport, and it lists her birthplace as the Philippines, no further proof required. Asawa is a dual citizen, but always presents both of our USA passports to the Immigration agent upon our arrival, and very politely requests a BB stamp for both of us. It has always been cheerfully granted without further questions.
  15. Mmm, I'll be right down, heh! Reminds me of my old Brinkmann smoker. Good luck in your new gig and hope you make a fortune.
