    None at the moment, it's just a way of life.

    I really miss all that extra padding between me and my Sweetheart's ribcage and hipbones. We have to be more careful now when we . . . um . . .dance.

    OHHHHHH I wish I could sew!!!! I've tried, but I really stink at it. I would love to be able to make my own clothing, being the artsy type and all. Nothing I buy off the rack ever suits me perfectly. And my shape and size keeps changing, so nothing is fitting quite right...

    You can learn by doing. Get a cheap sewing machine at WalMart or somewhere (only has to sew a straight line).
    You can even buy "clear" thread, so it matches anything and you won't have to change colors all time.

    Put the clothing on that you want to alter -- INSIDE OUT!

    Pinch here and there where it's too big and pin it so that it fits.
    Take it off, sew, remove pins and try it on RIGHT SIDE OUT and see how it looks.
    If more needed -- just put it on INSIDE OUT and try again.

    Learn to make DARTS (easy to do) and is the secret to tailoring -- but just sewing a straight line takes you a long way in altering clothing that is too big.

    How is that working out when you cook watery things, like stew? I'm totally into cast iron, but still use steel or enamel pots for my stews . . .

    Yeah, I read a flyer from our local art museum that commented about how much taller and healthier we are now than your primal forebears. Credibility right out the window...

    70 is the new 50--without the hot flashes!

    Goals: Feel good, be stronger, and hopefully kick that arthritis in the backside! Oh, yeah, and losing more weight would be okay, too.

    Just a thought--past a certain age, women shouldn't be getting extra iron, since our need for it drops dramatically after menopause. Acidic foods like tomatoes really free that iron up into your food.

    Lodge seems to have forgotten how to make a smooth-bottomed pan any more, any way--we have vintage cast iron we use when we fry or saute.

    I'm probably not the right size yet to find any that would fit me properly, but I'll be in the market for some next year. Surely they make such objects. Also, sock garters. Please?
    Boxers for women are called Tap pants and Peti Pants. They are made of slinkier material then men's boxers.
