Re: what are your favorite pizza topping/s?

I love thin crust -- the thinner and crispier, the better. I also love light tomato sauce, not one that's full of heavy spices. Hamburger and onion Hawaiian Pepperoni Shrimp scampi (sounds weird but it's really good. Our local wood-fired place has this and it's one of my favorites.) Veggie (but I ra...

Re: What color polish are you rocking right now?

Haute polish is described on the company's website as a one step gel system. You can buy an LED light to help cure/dry (?) the polish as well. In fact, with some of the colors, you need to have the LED light. I just noticed that there's a sale going on for some colors -- BOGO. It's so hard to buy na...

Re: What color polish are you rocking right now?

I don't think I've asked this before, but has anyone tried Haute polish? I saw an infomercial on it and didn't realize it was sold at Target until I looked it up. I haven't tried it because I just don't get spending almost $20 per bottle, but I may break down and buy one bottle. Am I just cheap or d...

Re: Vacuum recommendations other than Dyson

Thanks for the additional recommendatons, JF, Gypsy, iluv, MGR, Asscher, Sky, rainwood, lknvrb4, and MC. It looks like Miele and maybe Shark are the preferred brands for most. I just went to the Miele site to check out their prices, and yikes! I can't justify paying that much. Our Dyson was around $...

Re: Child's Birthday Party RSVP

Re: Vacuum recommendations other than Dyson

Have you had any problems with the D-59 sucking up too many carpet fibers and then having to unwind/untangle a long string that's tightly wound around the roller brush bar (what's that called?)? That's our number one frustration, and according to Google searches, others have dealt with that too.

Re: Vacuum recommendations other than Dyson

Thanks Missy! I thought of looking at the smaller, thinner Dyon, but I'm hesitating because I think I want something else. I'm just too frustrated with our vacuum to deal with another one.

I was just going to look up recommendations on Cnet and CR, so thanks for the Cnet links!

Vacuum recommendations other than Dyson

I want to love our Dyson Animal but truthfully, I hate it. We've had it for about 7 years and it's time to buy something else. Our Dyson is too heavy and cumbersome, and it's almost too powerful. It always picks up long pieces of carpet that get caught around the roller/brush. We always have to unta...

Re: food prices..no jobs..

I'm sorry you're having a tough time, Karl. I can't say I pay too close to food prices. I try to stock up on some things when I notice sales, but I don't have the patience to seek deals through coupons. We usually go to the supermarket that's closest to us, although it's more expensive than the ones...

VapidLapid, thanks for the info. on alternative places like Pet Foods Direct and 1800 Pet Meds for medication. I've always wondered how they rate, and I had a hard time trusting them.

Re: Sunscreen recommendations?

I've been using Banana Boat Sport this summer and I like it. It rubs in easily and it doesn't feel greasy, which is great. That's been my biggest bone of contention, finding non-greasy lotions and sunscreens. I've heard that using anything higher than SPF 35 isn't really that helpful, but I think I'...

Re: Overparenting.

Moneymeiser, I think there's an understanding that some children, no matter what age, need extra support if they face specific academic, behavioral, or health-related challenges. I wouldn't consider that to fall into the category of over parenting.
