Re: Hip Replacement

He came away from that with his list of surgeries he would definitely get, and ones to avoid unless you really, really need them

Well, depending on context, these lists would be the same, right? Just like any surgical procedure (or

Re: Hip Replacement

My husband is a PA and worked for a ortho-spine surgeon for 10 years. He came away from that with his list of surgeries he would definitely get, and ones to avoid unless you really, really need them. Hip and knee replacements are both on his list of [more]

Re: graduation gift ideas?

To go in a completely different direction, what about a cool cookbook. Cooking is one of the most LBYM things a person can do, and an International Cookbook might be fun, allow him to recreate some of the foods he will get to eat during his travels, [more]

Re: Millennial Parents Sink Under Weight of Debt

Nancy, I live in San Diego County and mortgages can be had for in the 3% range. To pay $2500/month you would have a home well over $2 million.

I have no idea where these calculations came from, but this is way off. If you have a 2 [more]

Re: Millennial Parents Sink Under Weight of Debt

I do live in San Diego, and I feel like that mortgage is not completely unreasonable for the area, but if you can't afford it, you can't afford it. Right now is also a great time to sell around here, so if they have decided they need to down size, [more]

Re: Cooking for a Vegan Visit

Leftover frosting? What a concept. I vote to quit sneaking around and just take a spoon to it until it's all gone.

I should have been more clear. The sneaking is so my kids don't see me, otherwise they will grab spoons of their own [more]

Re: Cooking for a Vegan Visit

I know you were making a joke, and I agree it is silly. Buttercream a need fats that are solid at room temp, so I use half margarine and half shortening. Most recipes I see are for all margarine, but I don't like the taste as much, and I find they [more]

Re: Cooking for a Vegan Visit

In baking, cream is often used as a verb to describe the process of beating butter with sugar to make a smooth, light texture.
There is no cream in most non-vegan buttercream a either, nor is there any cream when you make a cake using the [more]

Re: Cooking for a Vegan Visit

Yes, I know without butter it seems funny to call it buttercream, but that is the style of frosting it was. It was amazing, by the way. I have some leftover and am trying to decide what to do with it. Sugar cookies are an option, but jus sneaking [more]

Re: Cooking for a Vegan Visit

That looks yummy. If you ever need cooking ideas, there is a vegan/vegetarian fools board too. If you like to bake, dessert need not be fruit or granita. I made a strawberry cake with lemon buttercream yesterday that was vegan, for example. An [more]

Re: OT: The new kitties

Congratulations on your new kitties! They look like a lovely group. I have five orphaned kitties who will be ready to find their forever homes in about a week. I hope they are lucky enough to find someone like you.

Re: what a horrible mother!

So I totally agree with your main point, but a word on the bus stop thing. I think the biggest threat at bus stops is bullying from other kids. Waiting for the bus and when you get off it is where a lot of bullying takes place, and I don't think that [more]

Re: Gay Marriage Question

Because my dad is gay, and has a partner, I have been talking to my kids about what gay means since they were very little. However the guide I use is to answer the question they are really asking, and not give more or less. At 5, he isn't asking [more]

Re: Beast Burger

Well to be honest, I don't think I love any of the burgers that are supposed to replicate beef, but I like boca much more than the beast burger. I was reminded that Amy's has a burger that I haven't tried yet, so I think I'll give that one a [more]

Re: Beast Burger

Well I finally tried it, and it was just ok. Not bad enough that I couldn't finish dinner, but I will not buy them again. They didn't have much flavor at all, and I enjoy other brands more. The only thing this really had going for it was that it was [more]
