This issue is all about cold weather topics, which is reasonable enough . There's an article on firewood and which types of wood are the best for heating your house. Most of us have to just use what's growing around our place but it was still interesting. If you have a Kindle you can get this magazine for next to nothing. I have been switching most of my magazines to Kindle from paper subscriptions, but this one I still get on paper because it's very high quality and will last a long time.
I had to make a journey up further into the mountains because I ran out of ferret supplies and needed some ferret medicine. My wife was going to pick them up at a different pet store on her way home Friday, but since she's sick she didn't come. After I went to the pet store, I went to the El Cheapo grocery store there, where they just put open boxes out, and the goods are different every time. I found this corned beef on sale for $2.25 a tin so I bought a case. When I was in college, corn beef in a can was twenty five cents a can. I know because when it got towards the end of the month my cronies and I often survived by eating corned beef on French bread until we got paid. It was cheap, you weren't hungry, and it tasted good.
The only other thing I found that was a good deal was Italica whole green olives. A 7 ounce jar was $1.00.
I didn't buy a case of them, because my wife likes green olives, but not all of them. I bought two jars, and if she likes them I'll go back up and get more. That's risky, because by next weekend there may not be any left (though they had a wall full at the store), but I'd hate to buy 48 jars and have her say they are not good.
The other fun thing I did today was replace the kitchen hot water faucet. It was dripping, and I don't want to lose hot water. It wasn't hard, I just got another faucet at the hardware store and replaced the old one. Some things you can wait on , but repairs that cost you money if you put them off, those have to be dealt with riki tik.
So, it's been a productive day. I am going to read any new posts on the blog list, then see if there are any good movies on tonight. It's been a busy day but a good one.
