Re: When do you stop supporting "the dream."

But, other than moral support, I'm not contributing anything anymore so I just said, "Good...

When do you stop supporting "the dream."

My DB is middle-aged. He has just quit another job. He has bad credit, no property, and can't stay at one job long enough to be eligible for a pension.

He's got an opportunity to chase his...

Sadly, this person works in social work. She often complains about being overworked, underpaid, and her time off not being respected.

Re: what shoes to get

Solid flats would be beautiful! A sandal, too.

But, how does the math work for the new shoes? Two pairs out when 1 comes in? I don't like that rule! :D

But the rest is also true. Some grandmothers do act like grandchildren are a "do-over" without taking...

Re: Yeast challange

Hungarian coffee cake sounds great!

I don't know how I missed this thread before. I used to keep yeast in the freezer to extend its shelf life. I don't bake enough anymore to worry about it.

Re: menu planning

It's a great system.

My system is: It's 4:30 and I have to make dinner. What do I have? That's what I'll cook.

Oh, we don't have anything? Take out or go to dinner?

:D
