Promise Here is the Garden Cooking Forum where folks can put any tips and recipes they want on it. Start start a new thread or comment on ones already there.

http://cubits.org/ellasgarden/forums/view/gardencooking/

And if you don't want all the hassle of maintaining your own cubit, all you have to do is cmail me and I can create a special forum just for you like what Misti has and Joseph has and there a few other ones , but them folks not quite ready to go public. You can do whatever and post whatever you want in your own forum as long as you stay away from controversial subjects that would cause folks to get to slinging ugly words back and forth. You have to moderate it and edit and delete posts ya don't like. It's like having your own mini cubit if ya want.

Well, the rain finally stopped. Cloudy as all get out and for the next couple of nights I get to wake back up to high 20's. Oh joy for joy. NOT!!!!!!!!!
I know with it being that cold, no way am I gonan stay up and watch the Moon Pie here drop down on tv. I always fall asleep a few minutes before hand and generally miss it anyways.

Got the black-eyed peas and a small package of spare ribs for traditional good luck in 2015 year dinner. We'll see if I feel good enough to cook it. May just open e a container of pulled pork and have BBQ sandwich and call it good luck dinner. Big Grin

Below is Misti's thread removed from oinking thread and posted here.

"ok a bit off topic but anyone use those Callous shavers with the blade in them? Be sure you soak your feet long enough. I didnt and now I am missing a chunk of skin on the side of my heel. Was bleeding like a stuck pig last night. My sweet hubby cleaned and bandaged me up. It reopened of course when I went to change the bandage this morning but wasnt bleeding as bad. I am gonna look for another pedicure route lol I think Im not feeling this shaver thing anymore. Im just glad it was mine, hubby has (or had lol) me do his as well and I would have felt awful if it was his. "

Omigosh my feet hurt thinking about it. Ouch. Had a professional pedicure today and try to do my own regularly, a good long soak and exfoliating feels so good. In the summer I run around barefoot in the garden so much I really need the regular soaks to clean off the grass stains.

Holy moly, Star ! I'm sorry to say I had to laugh at your post, but not because I thought it was funny you got a chunk taken out of your foot... we've been seeing an ad for one that has some kind of spinning sandpaper thing and saying it looked like you could easily wind up right down to the bone with that thing... Maybe just get a nice little pumice stone or a loofah ? Blinking

I am beyond grumpy right now -- our cable service supposedly is going to eliminate our only CBS channel as of Jan. 1st... WTF !! Direct TV here we come... (we even know the installer Hilarious! )

You know what I think would make a great alternative to the motorized pumice stone for tootsie callouses? Goats! They have no front teeth, yet there are folks that use goats instead of herbicide to clean out weeds. I can just imagine a toothless old goat hooverian out foot callouses Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I just use Wool Wax Creme on my feet now and then. It's great for hands that have been abused too. It's not light like regular lotion, but for therapy it's great. My husband learned about it from a friend who is a welder. He started ordering it a dozen jars at a time and sharing it with his friends. His hands are out in all kinds of weather and get knicks and cuts from working with cattle and fence wire. http://www.prideofmontana.com/custom.em?pid=406827

Misti I meant that if you inufse herbs into one of your lotions and use it on your feet you won't need the pumice stone or anything else to keep your feet looking nice.
Look for the ones that are beneficial to the skin.
Calendula, mullein, rose, etc I'm too busy to check which ones are best right now but I will soon as I can breathe and relax.
