    Love your screened-in porch. They're a necessity here, too. But mine desperately needs cleaning and it's way down on my list of things to do. There's still a little deer blood on the floor that has...

    If she continues to try to call, using another number once she realizes that you're not going to answer it when you know it's she calling, I'd tell the fiancée that you just had major heart surgery...

    I have a cleaning person who comes in every other week. She charges roughly $20/hr and is here from about 9:30 to 1 each time. I have a dog who doesn't shed and only one bedroom is in use. Mostly I...

    Erin, that sounds like a good book. I just ordered it for my iPad. I have a huge organic garden so it's a subject dear to my heart.

    I use Skin So Soft for gnats. They really repel the little buggers and make it possible for me to work in my garden in the early spring. I am very allergic to them so I appreciate that I can keep...

    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....

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
