Or, meh, you get the idea.

But they are cheap. My TracFone only cost $4. Wasn't even on sale.

I've used them for a number of years, but TracFone is basically useless and a joke for anyone who actually uses a cell phone.
Which makes them perfect for me!

I can get pics off my phone (I just email them to myself and open the email on a computer). Bluetooth? I don't know nuthin' about no Bluetooth. I can make calls and send texts, but the calls are iffy out here in the mud and the blood and the beer. Usually I have to go stand out in the front yard.

But the reception issue isn't related to Tracfone - at least not in my neck of the woods. The problem is there are damned few cell towers here. Friends with Verizon can't even get reception most of the time. So I figure, why pay for a "prime" service plan when I can get the same lousy reception for $6.50 a month?

Bottom line, I HATE cell phones, but I have one . . . just in case I break down on the road, or get stuck going to some pet sitting job out in the boonies (might not even work then, but better safe than sorry).

Dittos.

ETA: My other Tracfones, I could do the email thing, but this one won't attach the pic to the email. It says it's doing it, it ain't doing it.

Time to splurge and spend $10 on a Tracfone phone.

Successful construction of baked onion bhajis to send away with Mr Limey tomorrow as a gift for his host for two nights away back on the Old Island. Except I'd rather keep and eat them. Will have to make more for Food Night here on New Island on Thursday I think.

Food night, that sounds interesting. Weekly? Everybody brings something or a few cook each time when their turn comes up? At the bar or is there a community hall/room?

This guy at the bar, one of the regulars, occasionally brings food to the bar (for urrbody, not just himself), which is also a 200 seat restaurant.

He's brought spaghetti, and chili, a couple of times. Dude's kinda strange. He's bought a raw steak to take home and cook hisownself, and he's brought his own steak for them to cook.

Weird. But they don't seem to mind.

Weekly in the winter. Everybody (that turns up) brings something. In the bar (though there is a community hall, too).

Sounds like a bit of an odd duck.

Y'all are very intentional with your island living. When my friends lived on an island in Maine it seemed similar.

I wonder if an island induces we're in this together, it's us against the world?

I had to look that up and now I'm contemplating trying to make them myself. They sound delicious. Thanks for expanding my must-try recipe list!

I got the annual begging for a donation letter from the Fire Company today. They mentioned when I shop on Amazon if I go to SmileDotAmazonDotcom instead of AmazonDotCom, and select the name of the Fire Company(or any charity), Amazon will kick back 0.5% of my purchases to them.

I logged in to check it out, but haven't checked to see if the prices are the same both ways. Amazon claims they started this separate system to be spread by word of mouth through charities, friends, and neighbors. The 0.5% comes from the savings of not having to advertise. Sounds like bullshit to me, but I can see where if you're buying something online why not get it from Amazon and help your charity.
