    Wire Trees

    My mother had one from the 20s. The wires were wrapped in silk thread with leaves and blossoms made of jade. We called it the jade tree. I donā€™t know where it came from or any special name for it.

    What are you doing today?

    Puttering! Ran the vacuum cleaner, emptied it, made a mess, cleaned it up! Took out the trash and recyclables. Checked the mail for the first time in a week. I really enjoy the USPS Informed Delivery service that sends me an email every morning detailing what to expect in the day's mail...

    Covid Vaccines to 12-15 year olds - What are your thoughts?

    IMO a 12 year old is capable of making an informed decision. This is just one of many decisions/choices that a young person will have to make about their bodies, beliefs, safety, etc... I would support it and explain it but the ultimate decision should be left to the child.

    We Have Panic Buying Of Gas In Our Area

    We've had some price increases, my local station is at $2.88/gal for regular unleaded, but no shortages reported in the news. I have 3/4 of a tank and that will last me about 6 weeks if I'm careful.

    Is it selfish of me to want to receive cards or gifts for my birthday and Mother’s Day?

    It's completely normal to feel disappointed. I wouldn't mention it but I agree with @terry123 that maybe it's time to cut back and focus your attention on the grandchildren or on your close friends.

    What Is Your Neighborhood Walk Score?

    62 Everything I need on a regular basis is within a half-mile or approx. 5 city blocks. Things have changed so much in the last few years that pretty much everything I need can be delivered. My neighborhood is a little bit gritty but it's safe to be out and about alone during the daytime...

    Remember when "Rock N Roll" was bad ass?

    Sad and amazing that Rock 'n' Roll got the attention of racists around the globe.
