    Yes, that's the impression I was getting. I was going to order it but it's a bit pricey for a Kindle book so I may wait a bit. I've been rather self-indulgent lately...

    I think I read that a long time ago. Right now I'm reading Jean Donaldson's The Culture Clash, about our relationship with dogs. Just getting into it and am not sure I like it but I'll persevere....

    That looks interesting, Carole. I just got it for my iPad. Feel-good books feel good right about now!

    I don't think that's the issue, Vicci. I think it's just Tom. And I think I'll have to address it if it happens again, but in the future we will probably handle that project by ourselves with one of...

    We have a screened-in porch and the only thing that gets through is the gnats, since they can fly through the smallest mesh. They are only a problem in the early spring here. You could try natural...

    Thanks, Greek. And yes, I will speak up if it happens again. But it was occurring to me that he'd never seen me on my own turf before, directing an activity, so that might have been a surprise for...

    Thanks, people. "Tom" is someone that I see fairly regularly and we've all been friends for a very long time; I can't cut him out of my life and in fact his connections came in very handy when I...

    Social Conundrum

    I'm not sure how I should have handled this or whether there was any way I could have. Yesterday several friends came over to help me with a major project. This was something my husband and I did...

    The pine nuts that bothered me had no effect on my husband or granddaughter, so your results may vary. ;) But I'd just be careful about deviating from a brand you've used without problems in the past...

    Be careful of pine nuts. I had read about "pine nut mouth" or some such name on this board but had never experienced it until ShopRite happened to be out of their own brand of pine nuts and I bought...

    Oh, I'm so glad you sold the farm! I hope you were fairly satisfied with the price you got, and with the people who will be living there. It looked like such a perfect place for the right buyers.

    I'm sure that no one believes that this is an actual slogan, but it does encapsulate the views that Cruz appears to hold. I agree that small government doesn't seem to be an issue where women's...

    That's amazing, Charley, but it must be a lot warmer where you are. When my tomato plants get their first or second true leaves I move them out to the greenhouse so they get more balanced light, but...

    Thanks, S&S. What I have are pork loins, then, but they don't have much fat! I butterflied one and made Enchaud Périgordine, and that was good. Otherwise they're kind of lackluster.

    Okay, what's the difference between a pork loin and a pork tenderloin? I'm always looking for recipes for pork loin because it ends up rather dry and chewy if you're not careful.

    I've also heard doctors say "Nauseous" instead of "nauseated" and pronounce it "die-sect" instead of "dis-sect." I think they may feel that "belly" sounds friendlier and less intimidating. My dad was...

    Ana, I've been doing this for so many years that it's automatic, but remember that three days a week what's on the menu is eggs! So that makes it a lot easier.
