Re: Try to take the high road

Yeah, google me and I don't even show up. However, there's this nurse with my name in Michigan who's apparently all that and a bag of chips...

Re: Try to take the high road

Yes. Why I don't post anything negative about work on FB. I also don't post about politics almost ever (once that I can recall), religion or booze (even though BF is a wine guy). I do post lots and lots about FOOD!!!

Re: SF Housing Dilemma

This move to SF is a way for us to establish a base in CA and decompress from living in the Best City for the last 10 years. We plan to ultimately end up in the East Bay, we figured, after two years or so (in time to be in the right school [more]

Re: SF Housing Dilemma

minimum relocation fee of ~$5200 each
with rental prices as they are currently this is a really unattractive option to them. I think it's worth making the offer to show good faith, but I doubt it would be accepted.

Good luck - I [more]

Re: Housing in CA

Huge - radically huge - difference in prices locally in the SF Bay Area. My tiny 2B house win the east bay costs maybe $800K. In Menlo Park the same house on the same lot would cost $1.2M or more. I would recommend looking at areas you wish to live [more]

Re: Need advice on waterproof boots for women

Bummer - in looking more carefully I see that the Barbo's style I have - and anything vaguely similar - seem to be out of stock everywhere. Too bad, as they were great.

Re: Need advice on waterproof boots for women

I bought a pair of Barbo winter boots at Nordstrom's about 10 years ago, and they have been the best boots ever. warm, dry, worn on construction sites and in Chicago winter. Fantastic. They are based in Quebec, so they know winter.

Re: I lasted three days

I don't see this at all as an either/or thing, or going "back" to meat as a problem or fall. I generally feel better and healthier eating less meat, so I only eat it once every week or two. I eat fish maybe 2x a week.

Re: To a certain board

Horrible people. I left years ago. I don't mind differing political opinions. I have conservative and liberal friends, and I'm kind of a middle-of-the roader. But people there were just so nasty. In general, and specifically to me at times, that I [more]

Re: Squirrels

I don't feed them any more!
