    Thank you, Dave, for the excellent article! The Problem Next Door - I have been on both sides of the problem. I have neighbors who hate what I do and think it is unsightly, and I feel the same way about what they do! Very good advice.

    What are the best wines for wine-tasting?

    We had a lot of fun tasting wines from the "bargain bin" at the local grocery store. We tried a white, a rose, a red and a sparkling. Just had crusty french bread, olive oil and grated parmesan cheese. It was impromptu, nothing fancy but we really enjoyed it.

    Le Creuset cookware: why is it so pricey?

    I got my 2 as wedding presents 32 years ago. I use them all the time. The inside enamel is a little scratched, but I probably haven't been as careful as I could have been. I like the heaviness, I don't seem to scortch things as easily! I wouldn't make fudge or chocolate pudding in anything else.

    Would like to make cherry frosting

    The cherry chips might make a pretty decoration on the buttercream if the melting doesn't work. I would test a little batch with the melted chips. Or melt the cherry chips and drizzle on top of the icing you usually make. I hope you tell us how it worked out.

    Another Gingerbread cookie question

    Do you put raisins or cinnamon red hots on the cut out cookies before baking or attach them to the baked cookies with icing? Do you outline the whole cookie with a white line? Any other great ideas for decorating them? What do you think is the most traditional?

    Your opinions on laundry detergent

    I've used name brands before, but I've used the cheapest generic kind for years now and see no difference. I do pretreat spots with Shout spray. Another tip, I hang dry cotton and nylon clothes on plastic hangers or folding racks instead of the drier, too. They seem to look like new so much...

    Opinions for uses of convection oven, please

    ITA with Jeff. My turkeys come out great and much faster. Also, Elaine is correct, use shallow pans with no lids. I'm sure you are going to like it.

    Opinions for uses of convection oven, please

    I use the convection setting most of the time. The savings in time is most pronounced if the cooking time is long. I've noticed very little difference with cookies and cakes. I usually check about 5-10 minutes early. The more you use it, the more familiar you will be with when to start checking.

    I've never seen it myself, but you can find quite a lot of info about it online, especially as a herbal remedy. It was introduced to Florida by the USDA in 1911. Common name for US seems to be Black Plum. Use the scientific name and you can't go wrong! :) Syzgium cumini Syzygium...
