We all are (sometimes different) parts of nature.

Some think, they can be "smart" and become rich.

Usually, they're unaware of our fleeting-ness of breathing from within this body.

Lucky and blessed as far as I'm concerned.
Thanks.

I’m going through this with the continuation of my downsizing/death cleaning of clothing in my upstairs unused small bedroom. I hate throwing out perfectly gentility used clothing that no longer fit me (maybe 30 years ago they did). At least they will be sent to a recycling facility where some go to rags and others go to reuse.

Much of this was instilled in me by my parents who grew up in the Depression and live as a thrifty New Englander. I too have been scared and that’s why it’s so hard to part with anything.

But I’m not a hoarder!

I don't eat the gristle/ fat/ cartilage or any stuff like that off of meat/ chicken like he did.





My Dad used to eat lard on his bread instead of butter but growing up I never saw him do that as he had become somewhat of a self-made gourmet by then. A bit of a foodie so to speak.

My parents were only children during the Great Depression and easily adopted their parents' conservative ways.Their parents were pretty thrifty before that crisis so the whole ethos of Save, Conserve, Reduce, Re-use went into overdrive during the 30s. My Swiss grandmother would Re-use ice cubes just because. She had drawers full off used envelopes as scrap paper.

Just today my family had a long laugh over a K-cup style cocktail machine and an electric s'mores maker. A fool and his money...

So was my mom. She was the first environmentalist I ever knew. If it could be recycled, then by god, RECYCLE IT.

You need to go over and log in to recover your password.  There has been a whole boatload of idle accounts hacked and hijacked by scammers who have opened up accounts to sell records that do not exist to make a real long story short.

This reminds me of your interest you expressed in getting a turntable in the make me a stereo thread.  I have a mea culpa to post about that which I need to finish and put up.  I started it back then but life has been complicated.  Time to dig it out and finish it.

Yes I did login over there. I was thinking of offloading what I have collected sometime in the future. I started looking at the site back in 2017 but joined July 1, 2018. Another to do list for me.

I don’t know you were affiliated with discogs. I just went to log in over ether and forgot my PW.   
The last time I bought something was back in 2019?
