  • a person like that probably shouldn't be getting/have a clearance to begin with, good she was arrested.  What started it in the first place? Riding public transportation can be so entertaing sometimes!   I agree!  Well, she was angr…

  • Ummm...yes.  I'd be infuriated.  I'd go to my supervisor in person first though...rather than sending an email which can easily be interpreted to be overreacting and confrontational.  It is, however, very inappropriate and also unprofessional on the…
  • That's my favorite icing recipe!!!  I add an extra 1/2 cup of confectioner's sugar to cut some of the buttery-ness, and it makes it a little firmer.
  • We usually send about 50. This year, we ordered from Vistaprint and they were only $20 with envelopes shipped! They're great quality and I love them! I'm so excited to send our cards this year! We normally sit them about on mantles and such.…
  • I'm still collecting them for future things, but we already got ehat we need for the kitchen (and it was delivered at no cost within a week!). I have a friend we met in the NICU who's also near the amount she needs for the kitchen, so I'd be glad to…

  • linzee: That sucks.  Can I get anything good for 1220 points?    Well there's always shutterfly stuff in that range.  There's also a Venus Razor (who knows?), some magnetic bath boats, and some preschool Sesame Street downloads that Kira's…

  • linzee: Thanks for the tip, might need to check out the one in Jessup.   Kira still loves her shopping cart and she is 5.  She actually circled another one in the TRU catalog for christmas this year.    The shopping carts tha…

  • Pffft...sure would!  DH would kill me if I didn't for a million bucks!  And I'm like Mary, it probably wouldn't take that!  I don't know why anyone wouldn't.  Of course this is assuming I had a hot bod, but they have really good airbrush nowadays, r…
  •   We haven't turned the furnace on, but we do run a small electric heater in the most used rooms and keep their thermostats set on 65.  Just enough to keep the chill off.  We have oil heat, and when we checked on how much it would cost to fill ou…
