Re: An impulsive buy: .88 Mastercut Gems Ruby in Sholdt, via

I'm sure it will be different in person! When I had my round chrysoberyl set, the glamour shots made me want to cry seeing the color of the stone and it is the perfect color in real life. Can't wait to see it on your hand! I love red stones in yellow gold.

Re: Cleaning eyeglasses

Cleaning my glasses is an on going irritation for me, so I feel your pain. I used to use dish soap/warm water and my fingers, and then my mom had these certain dish towels that were made out of something that were perfect for drying them off and leaving them nice. I've found a few rags that I use fo...

Re: Retire in 7 years? - My favorite financial blog

We'd never be able to do this in a million years. You can't retire when both your incomes total 50k/year and you have 2 kids and a mortgage. We tried to be good when we first got married and we got kicked in the teeth so many times we quit bothering.

Awwww I know bats freak a lot of people out but they are cute to me. I did have to call JD a couple weeks ago tho and have him come check out a bat one of the cats found. It was in the neighbors yard, on the ground during the day, and I worried it might have rabies. Turned out one of its wings was a...

Re: Do you buy secondhand clothing/purses/shoes/accessories?

We do a lot of second hand..or third hand even, depending on how well it was taken care of. I save the kids clothes they grow out of and take them to the second hand store here in town, and I get a little bit back when they sell. I get a lot of clothes that way for the kids too, and some of my own a...

Re: Words some people still use that most find offensive...

Interesting thread!

Re: Words some people still use that most find offensive...

I feel we would be much better off to revert to a system of hoots and clicks for speaking. Or we need to learn to communicate telepathically b/c pretty much anymore when we open our mouths, we are in danger of offending someone, somewhere. We should just not speak to one another, but rather give eve...
