That is a good idea. I did get the quilts done. The whole family has been watching me progress on

them so I had no choice but to get them done on Christmas eve. It was worth it - kids finished opening their presents and then got the quilts which they immediately demanded their daddy put on their beds. I told them that the quilts are "for when you are feeling bad or feeling sad or even when you are feeling glad - then wrap yourself in them and remember all the fun times we have had."

They are my way of being with them even when I am gone. At 70 I thought it was time to give them a connection with me they could have forever.

Years ago Mother Earth News published a recipe for making your own Catsup. I would like to have

that one but am also interested in other recipes. I am asking now so that we can plant the needed ingredients in our garden in the spring. Thanks for ideas.

Need some help. My household is short on food money - we have an idea but need info. I know

that some of you watch shows on the internet. We are going to get rid of our Direct TV etc. if I can find a way to watch the following shows on internet. Do you all have the places I need to go to see them on the internet?

Countdown with Keith Olberman

TYT with Cenk

Rachel Maddow

Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell

Ed Schultz

That is all I watch and I am paying $70+ for it on Direct TV. That is a lot of food for the family.

Thanks to anyone who can help.
