The Old Farmer’s Almanac

Where can you get astronomical and weather data for an entire year, recipes, information on gardening AND animal husbandry, plus much, much more…The Old Farmer’s Almanac, that’s where.  The first edition was published in 1792 and the format of the Almanac’s “Calendar” pages is essentially unchanged since that time.  A true piece of Americana.


This makes folding shirts easy, plus they’re all the same size and fit beautifully in your drawers.

Pretty File Folders

It’s surprising how uplifting it is to replace a plain, functional item with a beautiful, functional item.  Case in point, file folders.

Anna & Kristina’s Grocery Bag

In each half hour episode, Anna & Kristina put a cookbook to the test.  They select several recipes, prepare them, then have a chef or other foodie over to taste test.  After that, they decide whether or not to give the cookbook the “A & K Stamp of Approval” based on how it delivers on its promises.  Anna & Kristina are fun, and you get to see “real” cooking with all its mistakes and messes.  Another great feature…they test a different product on every show.  This show airs in the US on the OWN Network.

    My grandpa used to buy the Farmer’s Almanac religiously, and I loved reading it whenever I was at their house. We even planned fishing expeditions based off the almanac! 🙂

    I have to agree on the file folders, too! I can’t resist getting those fancy ones!

      My dad always had one. I recently rediscovered it and for $5.99 I thought it was a bargain, especially since some “magazines” are $14.99!
