    How to respond

    I would say, looking at snarky person: "Did you know peridot crystals are present in some meteorites? Did you know most natural diamonds are between 1 billion and 3.5 billion years old? Aren't rocks and stones fascinating? I sure think so, plus they're so beautiful!" ... and then I'd smile.

    Yo bakers, parchment paper or those new silicon mats?

    I own some silicon mats but have actually never tried them due to hearing about experiences like Rfisher's above ... I don't want (and can't afford) to waste ingredients nor my time spent baking only to end up with less-than-acceptable results. I love using the parchment paper and find it...

    This is a very interesting and enlightening thread! I have to admit I don't consider exercise or personal care (mani/pedi/hair) to be selfish acts; by the same token, I don't think when my DH is exercising that he is being selfish. I spend a lot of time reading books for my own enjoyment...
