Similar thing happened to us. Thought it was the smoke detector but no. Then figured out it was the carbon monoxide detector which although is mains operated has a back up battery. we looked on the back of the detector where it stated that the device had a life of 7 years (I think) and after that period there would be a beeping lasting 30 seconds every few minutes. We bought a new carbon monoxide detector.

I also agree with you Lindajoy.
To Katanamama : I too have a a free (work) supplemental health insurance (I was a teacher) I'm also on Medicare for which $120 is taken off my social security check monthly. There is still a charge for office visits and co-pay for prescriptions. I recently visited Canada (5 week trip) and realized I didn't have enough insulin so I popped into a Canadian pharmacy and asked if they could supply me with Insulin or would they need my doctor to Fax my prescription. The pharmacist looked at my bottle and immediately sold me a replacement for $20 LESS than I pay here in the US with Medicare, Supplemental insurance and a co-pay
In the Uk there is NO charge for a doctors appointments or hospitalization. In Wales is if you are a child or a senior citizen there's NO charge for prescriptions either.

If your ailment is 'just' a quality of life issue you may have to wait for surgery, but if you have a life threatening problem that is dealt with speedily.

"Don't powder in public" one so true even today-shame more people don't follow that rule. I was forever trying to get my high school students to take care of personal stuff like that in the bathroom.

I'm knitting a baby stroller blanket corner to corner (Grandma's favorite dishcloth) I'm edging it with some fluffy yarn in pink. I was wondering if I could knit a picture in the same pink yarn in the centre - teddy/butterfly etc - any distinctive shape. I've found a butterfly chart but the shape isn't basic enough. Does anyone have any ideas where I might find a teddy? Or shall I just draw my own ;-)
It would be knitted diagonally but would be vertical when completed.

When we had a well (MI) we used to keep gallon jugs of water for the toilet. Glad all is fine now.

I'm currently experiencing a similar thing with a knitting pattern book I ordered from Amazon UK. It was scheduled to be delivered by USPS May 7th but so far nothing has arrived. I've contacted the seller via Amazon UK and I'm waiting to see what happens. I order numerous things from Amazon UK with no problems but this is the second knitting book ordered and not received. The first one shows as being delivered by USPS so maybe that one was stolen. I'm wondering if the UK seller doesn't put the correct address/right amount of postage.
I feel sorry for you, the seller mombr4, as once the item leaves your hands it becomes the carrier's responsibility.

I really dislike the way people with long hair are constantly messing with it particularly as the hairs will drop out
person in front of me on a plane/queue/theater etc . They frequently stroke it or lift it and twirl it or fluff it up spreading hair everywhere. Yuck!

Mine have changed in recent years since we started travelling more.
Shot glasses: started as a way to get an egg cup - stopped as I have too many
Supermarket reusable shopping bags : decided to buy one whenever I shopped on travels - stopped as I have too many (but they are useful for carrying knitting projects)
Pebbles off beaches we may visit : husband made buttons out of some
