Re: Healthy Living Thread

I'm sorry, Rod. I know how much Sakai meant to you and Charlie. Marcy, I hope you feel better soon. Hi Dee*Jay and Deegee! Well, this weekend took a turn I wasn't expecting. D. found out from his boss yesterday that they're restructuring things down at the division office where he's based from in VA...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Happy Friday! Rod, beautiful rings! I'm so sorry to hear that Sakai isn't do well with insulin, but I'm glad the vet was able to change her med routine. I hope she feels better soon. I'm craving burgers now, so thank you, Marcy and Dee*Jay. My cravings for everything I shouldn't have are kicking in ...

Re: Ever have non-materialistic week?

Most of the jewelry pieces I own are costume jewelry, and I rarely buy new things. I love to donate items and I go through our house at least twice a year looking for things we can give away. We've moved often over the years and that has definitely helped us get rid of stuff. I'd love to get to a po...

Re: Selling My House (advice?)

Dee*Jay, we did both, and yes, we worked with a realtor. Our realtor walked through our condo and gave us what he thought was a fair listing price. We went with that, knowing we'd have to negotiate somewhat, and we thought it was a fair listing price. The offer we received a couple months later wasn...

Re: Selling My House (advice?)

Great advice, Dee*Jay. We sold our condo a year ago and we regret not having it appraised ourselves. The buyers, my husband, and I signed the offer we had negotiated, and then the condo was appraised.When the appraisal came back, it was for far less than the offer had been, so of course the buyers r...

Re: A Book(s) Thread

I've downloaded a few things to my Kindle, and one is the new book in Lisa Scottoline's series about Bennie Rosato and Associates. I think the book is called Betrayed.

Re: What's in your purse?! Photos welcome!

I'm a minimalist when it comes to my bags and I don't always carry one. I usually just have my wallet, phone, checkbook (for the rare occasions I need it), a pen or two, a mini brush, and Tylenol or other medicine. I try to leave my keys in my pocket.

I hate when I hear people with autism being described as "an autistic boy/girl." No, they are boys/girls first. They have autism. It might seem like a little thing but it really gets on my nerves. Basically, I don't like when I hear someone described or defined by the disease, illness, con...

Re: Which is your favorite type of apple?

I like gala apples, but I've tried others that I really like, also (jazz and honeycrisp, maybe). Galas aren't too sweet, and they don't have that mushy texture like macs sometimes do. I stay away from grannysmiths because they're too tart.

Jaysonsmom, Jack in the Box has eggrolls? We don't have that chain here, but I thought it was a burger place.

Re: Do you own an electric kettle? Do you use it?

I'm American and I don't have an electric kettle. I just use the microwave to heat up water now. We do have a Keurig but we don't use it anymore. I grew up drinking tea but we used a regular tea kettle on the stove. I've always thought electric kettles were more of a European thing.
