    What's the last movie you watched?

    My daughter and I saw the new release "An American Carol". We enjoyed it and I found myself laughing out loud throughout the movie. It's not for kids, though. Some coarse language. Kelsey Grammar played Gen. Patton and did a great job.

    Washing eggs

    I have heard that eggs should be kept on the countertop but I have never done that. I think once they're refrigerated they need to stay refrigerated. Perhaps the eggs that can be kept on the counter are the organic ones, is that right? Does anyone know?

    Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix - TNT

    I found that it works with just sugar. I don't know what the additive would be. I only make a small batch just for what I need for the recipe plus a little extra to put in a shaker.

    Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix - TNT

    Next time make your own powdered sugar. I put sugar in a small electric spice:chef::chef: grinder and presto I had powdered sugar! You can also try a high powered blender like a VitaMix to make it.

    My Home is in a Magazine!

    I really enjoyed the article. I love the forethought and creativity that went into its design. Are there more pics we can see? I only saw the one in the article and the one you posted of the construction.

    Taking a Bath in the Restaurant Sink, Thats Why I Prefer to Eat at Home

    About a year or two before Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead passed away the group was giving a concert at an outdoor theater near our home (no we didn't go). One of the fast food restaurants in the area had to close mid afternoon when the Dead Heads were in town because so many of them were...

    Mattress Recommendations

    We've had the Select Comfort Pillow Top for close to 10 yrs. now. We like it alot. It's nice to not have to flip it and to be able to adjust it when needed. Also, I like the idea it could be the last mattress I'll have to purchase. If you have young children it's not the type of mattress...

    Japanese beetles

    I thought I read that those darn Japanese beetles were brought into this country by N. Carolina to eat the aphids. They reproduce quickly and they bite. We have had them here but not so many this year. A few years back a neighbor had a window in her home replaced and when the workman took...

    Is grapeseed oil >>> olive oil???

    I did read the article. I was aware when I sent in my comments earlier that there was a link on the internet disputing what I said. My reservations about canola oil weren't as outlandish as most of those the professor rebutted. I did pick up on the part where he said canola oil is genetically...

    Is grapeseed oil >>> olive oil???

    I don't like canola oil. The taste isn't that great. There is no such thing as a canola plant. It is Canadian oil that comes from the highly toxic rapeseed plant. It is a cheaper oil and that is why it is used in so many products. A marketing ploy has been to tout it for it's healthful...

    ISO comments/advice on silicone cookie sheets

    I'm not familiar with Tuesday Morning. Is it regional? Golden Rule, Tuesday Morning is a discount store. It's a chain that carries overstocks, outlet type merchandise so it's a hit or miss type of experience. You can get housewares there really reasonable. Some of their items are...

    ISO comments/advice on silicone cookie sheets

    I have one silicone mat and I have used it for everything. It works well and goes in the dishwasher. I read that it is safe because it is made from sand. I bought it at Tuesday Morning. They have quite a few silicone baking pans & muffin "tins" (they'll need a new phrase to call them by)...

    Tim Russert Died Today

    I was shocked to hear about Tim Russert, too. I wonder if the blood clot formed during the plane ride home from Italy? I have been listening to his colleagues reminisce about him. He was quite a family man. When talking with friends he would first ask them about their families and then ask...
