Re: Oil Pulling - how to stop the gag reflex?!

Hi Callicake, I use organic coconut oil. It didn't help my tooth, I did have to have a crown but it did help the hot flashes. I stopped doing it for a while after my dental work and the hot flashes came back. What I have noticed that made a big difference was the oil pulling, cleaning up my diet an...

Re: Weight Loss

Typo in the above post:

I meant if you manage to achieve about 50-60% of your set target(s), you should be very proud. Obviously, 100% is ideal but can be unrealistic. Better to set harder targets, IMO.

I've had these for years, but I haven't posted them in this thread. These are my EGL 3.08ctw J VS2 studs.

Re: Who pays for the fees on a wire transfer?

Hi, I don't understand why the recipient would be charged a fee. The transfer just comes in as a deposit to a bank account. I know of no bank that charges to take your money. I'm like DF--my bank doesn't charge wire transfers either way. If your bank charges you a fee to transfer, thats on you. Ann...

Thank you, everyone, for your responding. I didn't realise that US banks don't charge the recipient a fee.

Who pays for the fees on a wire transfer?

I was just wondering. I've always paid the fees/ charges (both sender's and recipient''s) when I send a wire to a vendor. But it seems that that is not the norm.

What about transactions on Preloved? Who bears the charges?

Thank you, Mary Poppins. They do say that you'd have to try for a while first before you notice any health benefits. Amongst the benefits listed, teeth whitening is claimed to be one.
