    Marble countertops etched

    This is why I won't have marble. There is so much that does a great job of looking like marble that I said no to marble. my nephew has it all over his kitchen in Brooklyn NY and it is a mess, 3 daughters and 1 baby son, it looks beautiful but is a bitch to keep up unless one accepts like the...

    Can you share a time when you realized a friend wasn't really your friend?

    I am very lucky, I have never had a friend like that. I have had friends be uninterested in my life when I needed them but they didn't diss me to others, wreak havoc in my life, they just either didn't get I needed their assistance or they just couldn't help and blew me off. Now I've had family...

    Introvert or Extrovert?

    Extrovert. after reading the above I am definitely an extroverted introvert. I love being 'on' but there are times I want to be alone and read. My husband is an extrovert also but only in what he likes - sailing, politics, our granddaughter! now I hate to say this but he's a snob at times. :) He...

    Shorter and colder days make me feel sad

    The cold weather and the short days make me feel like cocooning, getting books and watching out the window. In Texas there isn't any of that. the Ying and Yang living in the NE vs the mid SW :) I think of you as an outdoor girl so I can see why it is a downer. Wishing you so much happiness, joy...

    Now I really did it :((

    @missy HI Missy, to be quite honest with you I think 99.9% of people would have given up already, I think you should be good to yourself Missy and do what you can but your health and Greg's and your life needs to come first. I sincerely wish I could just say, screw it, give them up, but hell I...

    How much homework for kindergarten?

    it's just plain wrong BUT kids start kindergarten at an older age than back in my kids day, my son was 2 months before he turned 5 and his brother was 2 months before he turned 6, we held out #2 because #1 was a dilly, but in retrospect I should have reversed that..all that said, neither son had...

    Pollution is not just local and you know it. Wind power is coming, Amazon is a huge proponent. Anti global warming does make you not care about the environment because we do not live in a bubble. 1%ers? talk to trump and taxes meh.

    Well well, let's start simple.. Let's all drive electric cars and no crap about the batteries, let's heat our homes with solar energy, give breaks (taxes those dreaded horrid taxes).. that encourage people to use the sun, it would be a quieter LA or NYC with electric cars and yes I plan to get...

    I think it's anyone's right to challenge scientists, it's up to us what to believe. One thing I DO know, since the 1950s it's a hella hotter here in NE, lobsters are movng north. Our president has cancelled out EPA standards, scientifically backed standards. Do you have any backing for this or...

    We agreed to pay money to encourage and assist poor polluters to change to cleaner technologies. The US has no money and the reason is? Cut taxes, raise taxes and cut armed services, move on to this century. We seem to have plenty of money when the government wants to give welfare to farmers...
