    I have three treadles, a Featherweight, a 99-13 3/4 size electric that could easily use a hand
    crank and two 1970/80's electric. The oldest treadle, an 1888 Singer is in working order and
    was a comple...

    I bought a whole pork loin today for 1.99 per pound at Save-A-Lot. I will slice and vacuum seal
    this one and go back for another before the sale goes off. Last Saturday the whole pork loins
    were 2.99 ...

    Check around. A tire and rim at TSC was cheaper than just a tire at Wally World when one of the
    Rooster's had a flat tire.

    I have never used powdered butter or lard. How do you reconstitute it? How does it taste? How

    Crisco is not lard. Crisco is hydrogenated oil. A few years ago I had a small container of
    Crisco that had been opened in the pantry. I forgot about it. After about a year and a half, it
    turned into t...

    Last year I got the Rooster a Valentine card and he got pretty upset, since he can't get out to
    get me one, so I told him I wouldn't do it again. I cooked a nice supper tonight and broke out
    the last ...

    The Rooster had tetanus as a child. He had 11 spinal taps and over 400 shots and was in a coma
    for 10 days. When he came out of it he could not walk or talk. It took him a year to recover.
    He used to ...
