Sadly I did no such bewaring.

In other weird randomness, I'm reading a book about shame and it talks about the shame people might have........in public, trying to unobtrusively ease pressure in your bowels and audibly pass gas instead.

I'm sorry if this makes me rude but I had to laugh at the wording and not just saying farting in front of somebody.

Just make sure you are six feet from another person when you yak.

I forgot how much I liked diced potatoes fried in a cast iron pan.

We have had problems with the water line freezing. Fortunately after the ice maker so we still get ice, but no water. Our only fix (which was temporary) was to remove everything and let the line thaw out.

I fry 3 pieces of bacon, then add an equal portion of potatoes and onions fried in a skillet! Great side dish!

I had a refrigerator that did that. Most of my neighbors in the condo development had the same refrigerator and the same problem. Likely an issue with insulation in the door. Two fixes: 1) run some heavy fishing line or similar down the water dispenser tube, and when it freezes pull the fishing line to break up the ice; 2) take a hair dryer to the water dispenser in the door on high for 5 minutes or so. You shouldn't have to remove everything and let it thaw.

I had checked the water line -- we were all good there.
I have noticed that the freezer and the refrigerator have been "warmer" lately. Condenser may be failing. We have been looking for a new unit, but nobody will do an install with COVID-19 issues. We turned down the temperature and it seems to be running ok for now.

I’m picking up groceries from Pick n Save this afternoon that I ordered online earlier in the week. They bring them to your car. This is my first time ordering online. What’s the tipping situation? Leaning toward yes (maybe $2?). I also don’t want to offend someone if this is not customary.

From the FAQ section on Pick N Save's website:

Are tips accepted for Pickup?
While the gesture is appreciated, our associates do not accept tips.

Yup, do not tip those people anywhere. Target etc. also do not allow it as well.

It would be a real shame to see those folks take home some hazard pay.

A friend of mine once tipped a kid at a grocery store (that didn't allow tips) by dropping a $5 on the ground, and telling the kid, "pick it up, or someone else will..." then walked away... The kid picked it up and gave my buddy a thumbs up.

Would the store fire him for that? I hope not... I mean, he was forced to either pick it up, or leave it for someone else, like my buddy said...

I worked in a grocery store in the early 80's. We were not allowed to take tips. One day I helped an elderly lady take her groceries to her car. When we got there someone had parked about 6 inches away from her driver's side door. I got her keys and got in on the passenger side and slid across to the drivers side and moved the car so she could get in. She wanted to tip me, and I tried to decline it, but you can only say no so many times. So I eventually give in, take her dollar and head back into the store only to find the store manager was watching the whole thing. I thought I was in trouble, but he understood. I forget his exact words, but something along the lines of interesting customer service. So while it is policy, I am pretty sure an employee would not get in trouble, especially if he/she initially tried to decline a tip.

Why aren't drive-in movie theaters making a huge comeback right now?

Follow up:

Ended up buying a fridge. They dropped it off and we had to install it. Darn heavy.

Dump not open yet. Old one sitting at the back of the house.
