Re: Household produces no trash

I seem to remember a previous poster a long time ago who said her family used cloth wipes made from flannel instead of toilet paper. I am on a septic tank and considered it, but never followed through, maybe since I'm by myself I should revisit it. I would definitely have toilet tissue for my guest...

Re: Latest school shooting in Florida

That sort of thing IMO went out in the 1800's. [/quote] It's interesting the variant in comfort level. I see people open-carrying all the tim...
