Re: Waterproof iPod

Apparently so, but since it has a 2 year warranty, I'd think it was covered. Yes?

Re: bird and pigeon droppings

IS it OK to use Dawn with warm water just to clean the droppings and not going to wax afterwards?

I wouldn't. For occasional bird droppings, I have not had to use anything more than a wet paper towel. If there is numerous droppings, [more]

Re: Zero Federal Taxes. I did it.

Color me jealous. We got our taxes filed Saturday, effective fed rate 38% plus an effective state tax rate of 5.7% (top rate 6%). And there is basically nothing we can do, we earn almost all our monies, only deduction is charitable giving since no [more]

Re: Reestablishing the Middle Class

Unfortunately in the U.S., there is still a wage disparity in most jobs (outside of the Federal Government and Union jobs), between men and women. So, typically, after mom gets the kids out of diapers she runs out and gets a [more]

Re: GMO's In Vermont

Big thanks to those of you who label those of us who care about what we eat "dumb"... At least we know a bit more about you.
