  1. I’m disappointed to see that this is intentional. I assumed it was malware or junk like the you’ve won amazon stuff. I’m not even sure of its purpose other than blocking my scroll bar. If it is feedback on the website then I feel a sticky post would be more appropriate. Here’s my feedback since I won’t click on the purple box: I love the community here and the format of the forums. Since the latest update, I cannot stay logged in. If it wants feedback on its physical presence, than it needs to stop interfering with the function of the website and appearing like malware.
  2. First, I hope you feel better. (I hope you don’t have measles.) I’m sorry your holiday isn’t how you planned but please stay home, your prayers won’t be heard any different in another setting. I’d call the church or another member if you want to add a name for the church prayer list.
  3. It’s so variable what people can eat and like at different ages. To keep price lower, I spend weeks looking at sales. This year the baskets for preteens will have a tie dye kit and shirt, and yarn that were bought on sale at Joann’s plus a teacher discount. Then they each have a choc rabbit and 1 pack of peeps. I bought those at Kroger today where candy was 20% off.
  4. My dd had hers done at a professional piercing/tattooing place and we were told to use saline and to not spin.
  5. I think we have played this game before.
  6. Soup? I’ve had a soft salmon cream sauce over potatoes dish after tooth extractions.
  7. Professor Noggin card decks are some of our favorite trivia style games.
  8. I like the connotation of that. We need to start a campaign to bring Opportunity Shops to the US.
  9. We have a new Ascent but haven’t added a hitch yet. So far, everything seems great with it. I’m nervous about the new model unknowns. We went with the 8 passenger because in the 7 seat model the captain chairs do not fold very flat and the gap between them was awkward size.
  10. Are you a member? I didn’t see a sale price. I suppose I can see about getting a trial membership.
  11. Yesterday we adopted a long hair young cat (8 months?). She had only been at the shelter for two days and they had no intake information other than she had recently been spayed. If anyone else has experience with long hair cats, I’m looking for advice on type of brush or comb and what litter to use? She has really long tufts of fur between her toes. I’d love to share a picture but she’s not ready yet. She did just come out from under dresser when I brought in a plate of food, so I think we are doing great for first 24 hours.
  12. I’m familiar with a salary position that also has an expected minimum workweek. After leaving from being sick at work, the rest of the day would be leave time. There is a little flex time within the same pay period. So perhaps an hour off for a personal appointment can be balanced by coming in early the next day. There is occasional overtime but no compensation for that. This position has to bill each work hour to a client or to company overhead.
  13. Reminds me that thirty years ago, my mom and I were driving home and a neighbors house was engulfed in flames. While crying we walked up to the road barricade to see what we could offer to our neighbors. We found them in lawn chairs with a cooler of beer. The neighbor said she couldnt keep the old farmhouse warm or clean anymore. They offered it for a training burn to the fire department and were building new.
  14. I’m embarrassed to write this but I have a hard time with even Daylight Savings. It takes me a couple months before the wake and sleep times, and hunger adjusts. I think I am just sensitive and my body likes a routine.
