  1. We will be traveling at Thanksgiving and even though they are less than an hour apart, we will only have time to visit one. It will be my father (80's), DH, 2 18 year olds, and a 12 year old. We are undecided which one might interest our wide span of ages. Can anyone offer any advice? Thank you!
  2. Our current one is white...because it's the last of the old appliances that have to be changed over since our kitchen remodel with the granite and other new appliances. I really didn't want to change it until I absolutely had to. But since it is now 20 years old, the ice maker hasn't worked for five years, it's leaking at the bottom...I believe the time has come to take the plunge. Lowe's is having a great sale for the next two days and I really don't want to have to choose a fridge and get it delivered when it is an "emergency". (My last stove died on Christmas Eve Eve and I had to get the new one delivered on Christmas Eve. It's fine but I would have liked more time to make a decision and compare models.) I was holding out again stainless but after reading the responses it sounds like that wins the majority vote and I was especially impacted by the thought of Darth Fridge. haha! Headed to Lowe's tomorrow! Thank you!
  3. I have a black dishwasher, black stove, black granite countertops including a large black granite island (hickory cabinets). My refrigerator is about to die. Would a stainless steel refrigerator look ok or would you stick to black? My husband says a black refrigerator would be an awfully big black object In the kitchen and darken it but I'm just not sure that stainless would look good with that mix. The other appliances are fairly new and should last several more years so no replacing those anytime soon (hopefully). My previous appliances were white before this changeover started so either a black or stainless fridge will be new to us. Thanks for the help!
  4. We are starting WR - Fable (Fourth Grade). How long are you going to spend covering this book? One semester? A whole year? Do we also need to cover Book 2 during 4th grade?
  5. Yes you should most definitely go to the corporate level. If you have pics it will help. I am a frequent business traveler (at least 2 hotel nights almost every week) and only stay at a certain brand hotel because I can use all my points for family travel and I like this brand best. But...I would most certainly use Trip Advisor to post my experience whether or not I got compensated for any issues. If you do get compensated you should mention that in your review but your experience is still valid. The hotel may or may not post a response (many do) so also mention the amount of time you waited for a resolution in case they make it look like they eagerly took care of your concerns. I would leave out all the info about the other hotel as it would not be relevant to your experience there. I use Trip Advisor A LOT.
  6. We have been drudging through WWE for two years and it is time for a change. A couple months ago I read on here about another program that seemed to be generating a lot of excitement and I want to look at it while I'm here. All I remember is that several people like me who liked WWE but were just so tired of it really liked this. And maybe it was kind of new? Sorry...any help would be appreciated!!
  7. We will be overnighting in Hong Kong on an international flight in June. We will arrive one evening and leave late afternoon the next. I suppose the best transportation to a hotel would be a taxi? Anyone know a hotel to suggest? Also, is there anything we could see or do in this short time to see a small bit of Hong Kong? I've tried to do some internet research but our stay is so short that it is hard to get a picture of what would be best to do during that time. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
  8. We are flying into Chiang Mai and will be there most of the time. Towards the end we are taking the train to Bangkok to visit there for one day. We were then going to take a train to the beaches from there for a couple days before returning to Bangkok to fly home.
  9. Most of the time in Chaing Mai but we can travel anywhere for the 3 day beach trip. We likely won't be back for a long time so we'd like to really experience the best place.
  10. We will be in Thailand in June for a couple weeks visiting some family. We would like to spend 2 or 3 days at one of the prettiest beaches, also. They have just recently moved to Thailand so don't quite know yet what the prettiest but family friendly area would be to visit. Anyone have any suggestions of which area or even a hotel suggestion? There are really lots of choices! I've checked Trip Advisor but would still appreciate a recommendation from a family friendly source.
  11. I'm not looking for Old Roy pricing...but with three dogs now this question becomes more relevant. We have always used medium grade foods but now there is so much controversy over what is good and what is not that I am lost. I am hoping to find a food in the neighborhood of $40 for a 40 pound bag. When I look at some of the "top" rated foods you are lucky to get a 20 pound bag for that price, plus I get lost in the seemingly endless list of choices out there. So...is there a medium (or higher) rated food that anyone would recommend?
  12. OK way more than $7 but this is our favorite honey (alfalfa): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004K67AOE/ref=oh_details_o07_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  13. Do you ever have mice? These are the world's best mouse traps but you would have to order two sets. :) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001H1LR6W/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_5?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
  14. This has been an interesting topic to follow. Our son (raised Southern Baptist but now non-denominational Christian) is dating a girl from Missouri Synod background. Can you tell me a couple differences they may face in their faiths?
  15. Oh wow. Now you have me thinking. Maybe I DON'T need a food processor and should just get a good blender! Truthfully I don't even know what I would use a food processor for! I can cook...but I cook because we need to eat...not for fulfillment.
