Re: PLEASE Don't Steal My Mangoes!

I know I am probably the odd one out but it
is pretty normal in my area for people to pick a few mangos
from a neighbors tree. They are so overly abundant
they start rotting on the ground and attract racoons etc.
I suppose mango etiquette varies city by city.

Re: Lots of Finger Coverage

Thanks for the compliments everyone! :) Enerchi, my sister has been wearing our great-grandmother's ring for about a year now and it seems to be holding up just fine. If it doesn't seem to be able to withstand it she will stop but we are of the mindset that we might as well wear it and enjoy it rath...

Lots of Finger Coverage

My sister and I were bored so I tried on my sisters everyday rings with my everyday rings and took pictures for fun. Below was the result! From the bottom of my finger to the top: (1) my diamond wedding band I don't know the stats (2) My e-ring a Tacori 2620 setting with an SI2, H 1.02 GIA diamond, ...

My 1.02 tcw IDJ Diamond Studs

I posted last Friday in the RockyTalky forum asking for help finding matching diamond studs on a budget. My biggest concern was being able to find bright stones that were very "shiny". Sarahbear621 recommended IDJ. I went with IDJ and I am very happy. I ended up with two GIA Triple Excelle...

Re: Help me find matching diamonds for studs.

I ordered a pair of studs from IDJ on Friday. They should be here tomorrow afternoon. I am excited! They are both .51 ct, and I1, and GIA triple xxx, however one is E and one is F. I hope this isn't a huge difference. I was a little nervous about getting I1 diamonds but I feel like for earrings it s...

Lost GIA cert.!!

I renewed my insurance on my ering last week and realized I cannot find the GIA cert. on my ering. (we recently moved and I can't find a lot of things now). The insurance company has the GIA report number on my declaration page. Is the report number enough to get the cert. reissued? Thanks!

Help me find matching diamonds for studs.

I REALLY want diamond studs. I want them to be at least .5 each. I don't care that much about clarity (I'm fine with SI1 or SI2) as long as the color and cut are good and mask any imperfections. I am more interesting in how much they sparkle and getting decent lobe coverage. However, I really have n...

I have to admit this thread is making me cringe. Pretty much sounds terrible to try and find a place to live that is not going to slowly make us insane with the traffic . . . EEK!

Re: What is a good town to commute to Washington, DC from?

We both have long commute snow (45 minutes and 1.5 hours) so a somewhat long commute isn't too horrible. Keeping it under an hour or so would be nice I have no idea where he would be.

AND no we don't have any air transportation! I wish ;)

Re: What is a good town to commute to Washington, DC from?

He has a job were the location will change every 2-3 years. So that is his region. He can be anywhere in that region. So it makes it somewhat harder to figure out where to move. I am thinking the best thing to do would be find out where he would be when he starts and rent for a year to figure out a ...

Gypsy, I definitely could see how attorneys can end up with depression and/or anxiety disorders.

Re: Keeping your priorities straight . . .

I don't work at a huge scary firm or anything. My boss tells me my billables are fine and to just keep doing what I am doing. I can't even imagine how people deal with the highly unreasonable "golden hand-cuff" type places. My guess is they burn out quickly and go somewhere smaller.
