Have you ever seen burlap drapes?

Have you ever seen burlap drapes? My grandmother was telling me about how when she was a young child, when she went to visit her grandparents, her grandmother often sewed things from burlap feed sacks! She was telling me that the sacks actually had pretty patterns on them because the companies knew that the home-makers were going to use the material to make dresses and aprons and decorate their homes! I decided to go online and see if I could see some examples of burlap drapes and I found some plain ones for sale at this website, but I am going to keep looking to see if I can find examples of some drapes that had patterns on the burlap.

Coupon queen

I have turned into somewhat of a coupon queen. You have to do what ever it takes to make ends meet when you’re a single Mom on a limited income, you know what I mean. Every Sunday I get the paper for the coupons but I also check online anytime I plan on going shopping either for food or whatever. I love the online coupon sites. You can check each individual store from some sites and you can go to certain stores and they’ll allow you to print out coupons right from their web site. The best sites are the ones that offer discounts to several stores right on their web site.

Recycling at it’s finest?

I’m all for recycling. I told you about my microwave oven going out, right? Well my grandmother told me I should recycle it instead of just throwing it in my trash because the magnetron has radiation in it and that is not a good thing to be put in a landfill. I totally agreed with her and took it to our local county recycling center. They told me they would be glad to take it but would have to charge me $5.00 for the disposal fee. Say what? All they were going to do with it was throw it in the landfill. I told them that I thought they recycled microwave ovens; after all, the only thing wrong with this one is the main control panel was going out on it but the magnetron, transformer and fuse were all still good. He looked at me and said “I have no idea what you’re talking about but if you don’t want to pay us to throw it away then you could always take it to the Goodwill and donate it. That’s one way to get rid of it without paying us. “SAY WHAT???? I was totally appalled at what he was suggesting. I had no choice but to take it home and put it in my trash. I hated doing it but it was going to end up there no matter what I did.

Darn microwave went out

I got up this morning to make breakfast, you know, warm up some sausage biscuits in the microwave, and the darn thing just quit working on me. I just decided to take the biscuits to Grandma’s house and fix them there. When I got there, I was telling her about my microwave going out and learned something I didn’t know about her. She had one of the first microwave repair shops around here back when microwave ovens first came out and cost a fortune.

She told me about an older man that brought his microwave oven in and asked “Where’s the man that works on microwave ovens?” She told him that he was looking a her. He gave her a funny look and said “You can’t fix a microwave oven.” She asked him to leave it with her and IF she couldn’t fix it, he didn’t owe her a dime and she would give it back to him just like he brought it to her BUT, if she fixed it, he had to tell all his buddies about how she had fixed it for him. He said it was a deal and left. All that was wrong with it was a fuse had burnt out and she called him back in 15 minutes to pick up his microwave. “Couldn’t fix it, huh?” he asked. When he got there, she put a cup of water in it and it heated it right up so she charged him $10 and sent him on his way. He called her about a half hour later and said that the microwave worked better than it did when he bought it. He said it even popped popcorn now and never did before. Imagine that!!! He promised to tell everyone he knew about her and did send her many people to her to fix theirs too. 

Punished for saving water?

I have a friend that lives in North Carolina not too far from Charlotte. They asked everyone to conserve water. The good people of Charlotte North Carolina stepped up to the plate and hit a home run. They went well under what the city had asked them to and to reward them for all the good work they did saving water, they raised their water bills. SAY WHAT? I think it’s totally unbelievable.
