Re: Cranberry Sauce: how do you like it?

I love cranberry sauce - canned or homemade, it doesn't matter. I can't imagine adding jalepenos though. Spicy cranberry sauce just seems wrong to me.

If I make cranberry sauce, I follow the recipe on the bag, but I usually cut the sugar.

Re: Life with or without Sugar?

I prefer sugar to artificial sweetener, but I gave up most sweets (cake, ice cream, chocolate, etc.) almost two years ago. I now drink coffee and tea without sugar, which is something I never thought I'd do. I'll have the occasional piece of pie or a muffin, but it's rare. Although I also gave up pa...

Re: Black(?) Friday/ cyber Monday

I can't think of much that I want. I've pretty much finished shopping for my family, so I don't know if I'll be shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. We're planning a trip to meet my first niece over the summer (she'll be 3 months old then), so I have a feeling my family will now focus the major...

Re: Best moisturizer for pathetic and dry hands in the winte

Re: do you have a negative opinion on

I'm glad to have insurance, but it's not always easy dealing with insurance companies. We used to own a condo that had water damage caused by a leaking pipe. It was a slow leak that had built up over time, as opposed to a sudden burst pipe. Our insurance company wouldn't cover it, so we had to foot ...

Again, I never saw the need. If I wanted to access the internet, I'd just wait until I got home, and...

Re: What do you think of Cartier's Entrelaces ring?

My first thought was that the ends could snag on clothes pretty easily. It also doesn't look complete, to me. So I guess I'd say it's just okay. I'd rather have a trinity band.

Re: Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

To clarify, I would follow the CDC guidelines for self monitoring and quarantine.

As for coverage, CNN has been covering it, ...

I would not participate in a quarantine either. I don't follow Kaci because I can't stand ANY of this over hyped ebola coverage, so I can't speak about whether she is a media grabber or obnoxious.
