Re: DG's frugal journal

Saturday-thought for the day Are the "roaring 20's" over already? The history of the roaring 1920's is interesting. The Spanish flu in 1918 and World War 1 made for turbulent times. The Spanish flu died out about the time the war ended and everyone was so happy. The people were psychologically ready...

Re: Sandi's 2020 $ Challenge

Good luck all of you with your vegetarian lifestyle. We are staying with keto and meat. Hub's blood sugar is best on it. Beans are a staple. Green vegetables a daily portion. No fruit for hubs.

I follow organic principles. The county does not allow chickens or other small animals. Many HOA's here do not allow any fru...

Re: How many people you know are laid off or not working/being paid?

I know several right now who have been laid off or given "time off". The number of outright layoffs is staggering and has slammed the unemployment system.
