And I'm running short of food for dinner.

Maybe these recipes could help.

The problem is My car has a flat tire, hence the NEW tire in My last post here, Grace My cat is also running low on canned food.

Sorry. I thought you lived in a place where at least there is nearby convenience store.
I usually walk to mine. Always have.

The nearest is currently at 2.5 miles away, there is a new store nearer than that, like maybe a mile away, but that store is still not open, and both are farther than I can walk to. Just walking maybe 150' to the trash bin is a struggle.

@ Kittyman: Janneseti may not have known that.

@ Kittyman: Janneseti may not have known that.

Probably not. Which is why I let him know.

I happen to be lucky in that respect.
If my car goes down, I live within hiking distance of, among other things, a True Value hardware store, a Piggly Wiggly grocery store, a Shopko discount store with pharmacy, a Burger King, 3 gas stations, and both an Autozone and Oreilly auto parts store.
And there is always Yellow Cab on call if I had to venture further.

I usually walk to mine. Always have.

I wish it was that easy for me. The nearest convenience store (petrol station) is 4.023 km away. The nearest grocery market is 8.046 km away. If a ambulance is needed. Pray and give them 20 to 30 minutes.

4.023 km away? That's 2.5 miles.
We would say it's 4 km away. The extra 23 meters... LOL:)
Anyway. I'm a city boy used to have near to all. Genuine Söderkis:)
My GF as a kid though had to go 7 km to school everyday, Rain or shine, Snow in the winter.

I used to live in a small city, in San Gabriel CA, a store was a block away, but that was in 1986, when I could walk a long ways.

Not being able to walk is a bummer for ever reason it is.

Ouch!

I almost had to have that done in 2002, instead I have 3 titanium screws in My left leg, 2 bad ankles and knees, and 2 dislocated hips, with OA, that's in addition to a stiff back, being 6'1" tall, about 416lbs, a hernia(My stomach is partly above My diaphragm), a dislocated right shoulder joint(OA was detected there at age 40, I'm 57, though I'm told I look like I'm about 45, w/thick strawberry blond hair and no grey, hairline unchanged since I was a teenager), I had to change My diet several times just to lose some weight, I hope I'm still losing weight, I need to charge the batteries soon for the scale.

Hope you check your blood sugar levels so you don't have diabetes 2.
As for my GF who have it, it started with a small wound on her heel.
That grow and soon she got gangrene...
So check your feet often as well!

No I don't have diabetes, 1 or 2, I've been tested, and like the rest in My family, this does not exist.

UK Social Services would put you into Assisted Living accommodation as a very minimum., and you'd be a Blue Badge holder.


If he wanted to, he would not be forced, if they had places, also my father refused a blue badge right up to his death.

Please remember I asked for help for my father and UK Social Services were stretched to provide it. Then when I was desperate for full time help I was told it would be two to three weeks before he could even be assessed, by which time he was dead.

Strange but if you convert 2.5 miles to km guess what the answer is

4.023 km

I wonder if just by chance that is what he did as I do not suppose his car records the journey in km.

4.023 km

When I studied at KTH ROYAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY that conversion is considered as an error.
2.500 miles = 4.023 km.
2.5 miles = 4.0 km.
See the difference?
If you cannot handle magnitudes and precision's then you are lost...

Whatever:)

People that round up/down to sensible levels get moaned at for being imprecise.

Well at least I don't live in Florida or Texas. I'd rather go thru an earthquake, since I've been here I've gone thru 2 quakes, both at right angles to each other, My place is setup for earthquakes.

I've applied twice for IHSS, and been denied twice, all cause I can do somethings still, so I'm not in danger of being placed in a home, and cause I'm not 65+ yet.

So I fall thru the cracks as it were.

Doesn't matter how precise you are, if you're not accurate.
