Re: Insulating roof

Does insulating the inside of the roof in addition to standard attic insulation help? In theory, it should help lower the temperature in the attic, but it is rarely done.

It helps tremendously.

Re: Airline miles?

We just got a Capital Venture card last week. We wanted to keep DH's work expenses separate from our household expenses and thought we would try it and get some benefit for ourselves at the same time. Don't have any track record for it yet, [more]

Re: What is the best way?

I have to do this alone.

Unfortunately you can't. You are a partnership and you will not get anywhere without the other.

Re: The future, or what's left of it.

Fascinating stuff, Goofyhoofy. Thanks for bringing it up. I've been interested in what the future would look like since my teens, reading sci fi by Isaac Asimov, et al.

Re: Counter-top toaster oven

In the past, I had the use of one and liked it. Like you say, it's good for heating things you don't want to heat up the entire oven for, and is a good addition to that large dinner gathering to heat rolls, etc. You could probably make the toast in [more]

Re: Charitable donations

I rarely post anymore. I only do today because I get tired of bigotry that is expressed regularly and that goes unchallenged. Bigotry against religion, no matter how trendy and smart it is these days, is still bigotry.

Re: Charitable donations

I would think a large portion of that goes to church/synagogue/house-of-worship tithing - which IMO is different than other forms of charitable giving if that house-of-worship is a part of how one socializes. To me it seems more like supporting [more]

Re: LBYM news sources

I don't expect all free news, but would like more reasonably priced news. I've allocated $25/month for the purpose, which seems like plenty to me. The hubster's online NYT takes up $15. My Dish takes 20/12 = $1.67. I subscribe to online Consumer [more]

Re: LBYM news sources

I notice that not only the NYTimes charges for a subscription in order to read more than 10 articles/month. Now the Washington Post has followed suit. I wonder if the middle class and below (you know I mean income below the top 5%, $186k ;-) will [more]

Re: 'Regifting' in the extreme

Tony- yes, it was a nice little bow! :)

'tea- yes, that is probably true. Feeling better now, I'm sure she didn't want to come over empty handed either.

Funny how a good night's sleep can change your outlook. :)

'Regifting' in the extreme

A few months ago at a little holiday party, my neighbor dropped by with a box of Tastefully Simple cake mix with a bow on top as a hostess gift.

I made it yesterday, but as it was cooking in the oven, I took a closer look at the box and [more]

Re: Why Was I Not Informed?

Sure enough, checking the song's lyrics online tonight, there's even a line about "mouth to mouth resuscitation" and "heartbeats" in it.

Why was I not informed?
