Pres candidates with cancer?

Has there ever been a successful Presidential candidate who has a history of cancer?

Either one who made it to the White House or got their party's nomination?

In these days of open books on politicians' health, I can't recall a [more]

Bed, Bath & Beyond - toiletries

I visited BBB recently and was surprised at how much they have expended their toiletries selection. I was also surprised that many of the prices were competitive with the places I usually shop (Target, Walmart, grocery store) for such items as [more]

Re: The Blacklist 043015

My latest silly theory (go ahead, prove me wrong), Reddington is telling the truth by insisting he isn't Elizabeth's father - he's really Elizabeth's mother.

I think that was done on South Park! :)

I have a basic freebie LinkedIn account, without any connections. I also notice that some people have little icons showing that others have vouched for certain skills and experience. Does this come with a paid account? Is that something worth [more]

Re: Carpet Cleaning

A bit late to the party and after you've made a decision, but here's my $0.02 anyway.

Prices on Amazon seem to range from $150 to $350 for a carpet cleaner.
This sounds like a slam dunk deal. Anyone think it'll be a waste of money? On

Re: An Open Letter

Agree completely, would be fine with eliminating any religious exemption, as well.

I agree too. The only exemption that I could see as valid is for medical reasons. Did your doctor support no vaccination? Fine. Please be aware that if [more]

Re: Laundry help - black jeans?

When you've tried the other stuff, do you ever add scents to your washing water?

I actually use the unscented version of everything, since I have some problems with any perfume-y scents. I'd prefer neutralizing the dye smell rather [more]

Laundry help - black jeans?

I bought a pair of over-dyed black jeans last summer. The jeans had a strong chemical smell as some new clothes do – especially over-dyed jeans.

I washed them as directed in cold water. When I pulled them out the jeans still smelled fairly [more]

Re: Wood rack repair

You may not really need "clamping." You just need the thing to stay in *exactly* the right place while the glue dries and sets.

For a foot, it may be enough to just have the rack sit on a good level surface, foot in place while

And no matter what, you should plan on making sure you have a good way to hold everything in position while the glue cures. For this, that probably means placed on level surface so that all 4 feet are touching the ground the same. And probably [more]

Thanks for the replies. I hope I didn't sound discriminatory regarding how many people could comfortably fit in this house. I guess I am really just looking at it from the viewpoint on more people equals more wear and tear on the house in general. [more]
