msop, :lol:

No, I don't think it's polite, and I wish people would excuse themselves and do that elsewhere.

Re: What is your Fast Food weakness?

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

I guess my fast food weakness would be french fries. I used to love shakes, too, but I haven't had one in years.

Re: Shower/baby gifts

What about looking for Eric Carle prints or postcards and framing them? I found this site: http://www.oopsydaisy.com/store/artists/eric-carle-art-for-sale-1.html and you could also check Etsy, too. There are some really cute things on Etsy, and I think I've seen some VHC things at Target. Oooh, mayb...

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.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Hi everyone! Dee*Jay, you're very brave for taking on the association president position. Rod, you've been very brave for taking that on in the past. I could never do it. I'd run away.

I just finished the L Word. Great show, lacklustre ending. Any one have a good suggestion for a police procedural? I love Numb3rs and Criminal Minds to give an idea of my interests.

My state's library system has Overdrive, which is how I borrow Kindle books unless I get them from Amazon. What kind of books do you like? Rod, about being ...

Dee*Jay, I hear you on the elimination diet. I gave up most sweets a little over 2 years ago, and there are days when cravings hit HARD. When I dig into a bowl of plain/non-sweetened Greek yogurt and raspberries and try to convince myself it's really ice cream, yeah well...that doesn't work so well....

Dee*Jay, hopefully using your condo as a filming location will work out. It's a really cool idea. Would they put you up in a hotel or other temporary housing while filming? I would think so...

Re: What Are You Doing for Valentine's?

We're both sick, so we didn't do anything but cough a lot and give each other cold medicine. Romantic, huh? :bigsmile: We had ordered a pizza in anticipation for the snow storm we were getting, so we watched a movie and had pizza.

I loved the Budweiser commercial the best. Who doesn't love a hot guy, a cute puppy, and beautiful Clydesdales?

I also loved the Jeep commercial, Gypsy. Marc Scibilia sang This Land is Your Land beautifully.

Re: Selecting a Primary Care Provider?

When looking at a specific practice, it might be worth asking how many nurse practitioners there are. Much of the time, that's who you might be seeing instead of your PCP.

Re: Selecting a Primary Care Provider?

I honestly pick from the list of who is covered and choose the ones that are closest or most convenient. This is what I do, too. I also prefer females, so I take that into consideration when looking at a practice. I've lucked out with the past few doctors I've had. I don't like the lack of late aft...
