Re: Foot Doctor!

Thank you, Wild. I appreciate knowing more about your foodbank experiences. It sounds like yours is more like a shopping expedition than the one DD and I work at. There, the boxes are pre-packed and handed out at various locations around the county. [more]

Re: Average IQ for College Majors

And yep, without credentials or recommendations, you are right...they wouldn't get past the internet screening...... unless they knew the right people.

Re: Cleaning

Thanks for the thoughts about grout cleaning and sealing. I didn't know that was a possibility either. I've dealt with this stuff for 11 years and have not yet managed to replace it. One day though, it absolutely must go. Whoever thought this was a [more]

Re: Herb Garden Cleanup

If you had any other variety of pepper near those gems, you will likely get something else.

Huh. I think there were also jalapenos that year, but I'm not sure. We'll it cannot possibly be worse than the extremely vigorous hybrid [more]

Re: Herb Garden Cleanup

I lost almost all of my herbs between last year's construction and this winter's cold. The sage, chives, and thyme (or savory, can't remember which) are the only survivors.

So Sunday I got ambitious and planted a bunch of seeds. Garlic and [more]

No, he's not a psychopath.

I know that Ish knows, but I think maybe a reminder for all of us is good anyway. There is a difference between mental illness and stress-induced crazy behavior. There is also a difference between mental [more]

Cleaning

I barely decluttered at all last night, though I did pack up a bunch of videocassettes that I'll never use again.

I did, though, actually -clean-. Three hours later, every surface on the main floor of the house was sparkling. The kitchen [more]

Re: Childish but.

That is a lot of silver! Good for you for going through it all.

ThyPeace, whose mom collected full silver sets for each child and each niece. That is a LOT of silver. I use mine about once a year...

A little organizing.

I'm not really spending much time organizing or decluttering these days. But DD is away for spring break and I'm trying to use my time wisely. First thing I did was to bag up all the books she sorted last weekend. She has been a pack rat since she [more]

Re: Deep in Stuff

Boy, how I wish my mom agreed with these sentiments.

ThyPeace, and what am I supposed to do with the collection of Sailing magazines, exactly? I hate sailing.

Re: Chasing "The Help" Away...

I understand the sarcasm. But I will say that it's really nice to see an actual attempt at focusing on investment implications. There are many. One that I see is that the well-off will have to start ensuring housing for those that they wish to [more]

Anuvaka! I had wondered where you were. I'm so sorry to hear about the infection and associated complications. And I am very glad that you are back.

Re: The end of my good credit

mtr, I believe VKG was probably referring to the medication you were given to make you relax enough to deal with the endoscopy, not your risperdal.

Re: Foot Doctor!

Wild, a question, if I may? DD and I volunteer at a food bank about once a month. We pack boxes of dry goods -- usually a few cans of veggies, a few cans of beans, some cans of soup, a can or two of tomato sauce, pasta or rice, a bottle of salad [more]

Crap. Now everyone will know I'm a nerd.

ThyPeace, eventually escaped to engineering. Which apparently differs from physics mostly in verbal SAT scores? Innnteresting.

Re: Rhubarb

I have eaten unsweetened raw rhubarb fresh from the garden. It is the sourest food I have ever eaten in my life, even more sour than fresh unsweetened cranberries.

So, well, no. I don't really know of anything that leaves out the sugar. You [more]

Re: Hoover Dam Hiring -- Can't Find Help

Actually, if you're smart enough to see the "stuff" under the electronic controls and can use both brains (at a 3.0 GPA level) and hands (at a journeyman or master tradesman level), you're pretty much golden in any town of more than 5,000 [more]
