    And I thought shelling pecans could be a pain. ;)

    To my knowledge, I have never eaten a chestnut. Geography has a lot to do with that, but if you didn't know if you really liked them, sounds...

    It might make a difference whether this is a national thing -- like National Honor Society or such that I would imagine sets the requirements and the school doesn't really have much discretion. I...

    I have never done a turkey in a roaster. For me, the simplest way to cook a turkey is in a roasting pan in the oven (we have also grilled or fried turkeys). We have evolved over the years, but our...

    Fifteen percent is a lot. Also, if they are attorneys, they are expecting you to counter and to negotiate -- I am sure of that. I suspect they figure meeting in the middle is the most likely...

    That's great! If you can take a picture of him and he will rub against your legs, you are miles ahead of where I was when we took that trip to the vet. Good work. Be patient.
