I think I saw likes to eat and assumed that meant likes to cook. People cook a lot on my estate, I can smell it. But I think our house and our attached neighbour are the only ones without a helper so maybe different. A month of dry and canned is a basic as is a couple of weeks of frozen milk and meat. But I suppose I'm not going to get snowed in so need to learn to not bulk buy. The cashier in Giant did look at me pityingly when I bought 60 loo rolls.

I saw the laws had changed. At least now every maid will have a witness to her death plunge. I can do ground floor easily, second floor the windows turn in apart from the ones over the living area. The top floor is 15 ft high windows, I guess we could put ladders on the ac ledge. Or just leave them dirty. I'm assuming that's what everyone else is doing because I've not seen the neighbours do anything.
