  1. FYI, A friend of mine decided to save a few bucks last spring and put his satellite on "vacation stop" for 6 mos while he traveled in his motorhome. He had never done it before and sadly to his surprise when he returned this winter ATT had bought DirecTV and no longer offers the "vacation stop" service so if he wants the TV resumed it will be $200 to $500 dollars for the service call. YIKES. Yesterday I received this email from AT&T: Changes to Your Terms of Service Agreement(s) are coming.

    DH is a voracious reader and always enjoyed checking out used bookstores in our travels. His favorite paperback book exchange is closing. After several years of seeing the decline of hard copy he is thinking about getting an E-reader and using his library card's e-book collection. My questions: What should I look for when buying an E-reader? What features are most important to you in an E-reader? What tips an tricks do you use with your E-reader? What things should I avoid in an E-reader Thank you.
  6. I saw this on another RV forum. They took a piece of wood and covered with with fabric to prevent scratching the frig doors. The horseshoe shape easily slides in and out of the door handles.

    simple recipies

    One of my vices since retiring is HGTV and cooking shows. A couple years ago I saw 2 ingredient recipes on Rachel Ray. I still make her oatmeal banana cookies, they are so easy I occasionally add 2 more ingredients: chopped walnuts and raisins. https://www.rachaelrayshow.com/celebs/17221_Sunny_Anderson_New_2_Ingredient_Recipes https://www.rachaelrayshow.com/recipe/17846_Sunny_Anderson_2_Ingredient_Chicken https://www.rachaelrayshow.com/recipe/17845_Sunny_Anderson_2_Ingredient_Zucchini https://www.rachaelrayshow.com/recipe/17847_Sunny_Anderson_2_Ingredient_Potatoes https://www.rachaelrayshow.com/recipe/17848_Sunny_Anderson_Peanut_Butter_Oats_Granola_Cookies Enjoy....

    Clean Up That DoDo

    Unfortunately there will always be pet owners that don't pick up but I don't think its getting worse? It all depends on the attention given to it in any particular area. A park we stayed in this summer had a huge dispenser in their off leash dog run that the woodshop made for people to drop off their plastic grocery bags to use in case they didn't bring their own bag. We have stayed at proactive RV parks that ask at check in if we have pets and when we say yes they give us a little "doggy gift bag" including a map of the areas for dog walking, an off leash dog park if they have one, a doggy treat and one or two waste bags. We recently took a car trip and La Quintas Hotels are dog friendly. A couple of them asked at check in if we have a pet and offered a dog treat and waste bag. In fact one hotel in Florida had scented bags in their dog walking area. WOW. Handing out a complementary welcome doggie bag is good customer service and may encourage more people to pick up? I have used one of these Dog Leash Accessory Bag for years this is the least expensive I have found this product. I put treats on one side and 2 rolls of poo bags on the other side. It also has an elastic band to hold a small flash light. I have found this hands free neck light very helpful for late evening or early morning walks as the days get shorter and its dark out.

    Nutritional Yeast Seasoning

    Found this description on Wikipedia: Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, often a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is sold commercially as a food product. It is sold in the form of flakes or as a yellow powder and can be found in the bulk aisle of most natural food stores. It is popular with vegans and vegetarians and may be used as an ingredient in recipes or as a condiment.[1] It is a significant source of some B-complex vitamins and contains trace amounts of several other vitamins and minerals. Sometimes nutritional yeast is fortified with vitamin B12. Nutritional yeast has a strong flavor that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy, which makes it popular as an ingredient in cheese substitutes. It is often used by vegans in place of cheese,[2] for example in mashed and fried potatoes, in scrambled tofu, or as a topping for popcorn.[3] In Australia, it is sometimes sold as "savoury yeast flakes". In New Zealand, it has long been known as Brufax. In the United States, it is sometimes referred to as "hippie dust", "nooch" or "yeshi", an Amharic name meaning "for a thousand".[citation needed][dubious – discuss] Though "nutritional yeast" usually refers to commercial products, inadequately fed prisoners of war have used "home-grown" yeast to prevent vitamin deficiency.[4] Nutritional yeast is different from yeast extract, which has a very strong flavour and comes in the form of a dark brown paste.

    Nutritional Yeast Seasoning

    I have found it on Amazon but just wondered if anyone has used it? How does it taste? What foods have you tried it on?
  12. I saw this used on a cooking show; they said it adds a cheesy nutty flavor. Nutritionally vegetarians uses it as a source of B vitamins. Has anyone tried this seasoning?

    Stored clothing gets moldy

    A generic version of damp rid is available at Dollar Tree https://www.dollartree.com/bulk/Moisture--Absorber for a $1.00 per container. I buy them by the case when I can find them and use them in my front load washing machine and dishwasher dish drawer. They work great to keep it dry and odor free. In especially humid areas I put one in the water closet and shower stall to keep them fresh. They may help with your clothing but you just need to make sure they stay upright so the water collected doesn't spill on your clothes.

    Where did you land?

    You mentioned Arizona you may want to check out Juniper Ridge RV Resort in Show Low Arizona for a summer get away. We stayed there last summer. It is close to Phoenix so a lot of retirees winter in Phoenix (the valley) and summer in Show Low/Pinetop area (the mountains at 6300 feet). It is a small (500 deeded lots) but very active community. The HOA approved RV Ports last year so you could keep your RV under cover all year round. Several of the lots and park models line the private Executive Golf course which has league play 7 mornings a week during the summer. There is a nice blend of park models and developed as well as undeveloped RV sites for rent by owner: https://www.juniperridgerealestate.com/rental/
