Re: where to begin

Neveragain, it's wonderful to see you helping another withe the kind of advice that only a BTDT person has, while you're still in pay-down mode yourself. Kudos!

Re: AK running experiment in guaranteed income

I was going to to suggest that Alaska reduce their income or sales tax to get the same result without sending out checks

Re: zucchguini w/calm sauce :-)

Yes, I cooked the zucchini.

Re: Do the math..

How thoughtful of you to post the ONE day that was extra-low calorie and low carb. No matter--you poked at me when you thought I overate, too. You are very rude, V. I think Sheila is right--ploink. It's lonely in my P-box as I haven't p-boxed anyone [more]

Re: RUSH is right, No means Yes!

That certainly is true for me and when I am offered dessert.

zucchguini w/calm sauce :-)

I declare zucchguini with clam sauce a rousing success! I had a few items to use up before our trip, so I made it a little differently (onion, leek, fennel bulb instead of just onion). The way I cut the "zoodles" worked for this. I sliced [more]
