    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?
  5. 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/

    I removed the block from Escapees Discussion Forum aka www.rvnetwork.com yesterday and that seemed to work. Knock on wood no more Oriental SPAM. I did miss reading the posts for those 10 days and glad to have them back now.

    I just blocked Escapees Discussion Forum in my Outlook Email as the messages kept coming and that seemed to have stopped the notifications.

    FYI, I just turned off my notifications and received 5 more Chinese SPAM during and after completing the turn off?

    10 Year Rule

    I never liked wearing a name badge in my work a day world because the pin holes ruined my clothes. Now they have magnetic backs and snap on backs that slip on the pin so you can clip the name tag onto your collar or pocket so I look at it differently. Also having attended several RV Rallies over the years, many have crafting classes that created conversation starting lanyards to put your name tag on. The older (and wiser) we get the harder it is to remember names, I appreciate having name badges in our socially active RV park so everyone has the opportunity to have a friendly first impression and especially second and third until you can remember their name:)😁 On the dark side there are those that try to get something for nothing, and sneak into events or activities in larger RV parks without paying. Yep, saw it this summer at a RV park with a honor golf course after 1:30 in the afternoon and people waited till the pro-shop closed and played in an unmarked golf cart. Having a name badge (or numbered golf cart) helps employees prevent potential confrontations with unconfirmed visitors. Another reason for badges especially in a 55+ community with transient visitors is to identify individuals in an emergency situation where one may not be able to speak for themselves. IMHO if it comes to enlisting the "badge police" communication of the reason for name badges unfortunately wasn't communicated effectively in the first place.
  13. I have participated in several Yahoo groups over the years and liked their convenience to communicate with a group instead of maintaining an email list that some users forget to use the BCC to send emails. The last one I created would not let people join without using a yahoo email and then it would not let them change to their main email account. I have joined a new group that wants to create an electronic means of communication. One suggestion was Facebook but many people didn't feel comfortable with their security and the fact that anyone could add someone to the group. One feature of Yahoo Groups that I like is that you have an owner and moderators that could access the membership periodically to make sure only current members of the group were subscribed and the feature of being able to approve new subscribers before they could access the group information. Does anyone here have experience with Google Groups? Does it work the same way? Do you like them better that Yahoo Groups? Has Yahoo changed the ability to use whatever email address you want? Any other suggestions for a free email list for a closed group? Thank you.

    10 Year Rule

    We stayed in a park this summer that appeared not to want "Tiny Homes" in their park so required an RVIA sticker when you checked in then later adopted the 10 year rule. As the "Tiny Home" movement seems to have grown more of their manufactures are obtaining the RVIA sticker. It seems like most parks have the rule to give them a way to prevent unkempt RV's from entering or more importantly from staying indefinitely in their park.

    10 Year Rule

    We have visited several parks that have 10 year rules but curious if anyone has seen written guidelines for RV Park employees inspecting a rig that is over 10 years old?
