  1. Ranch Dressing - I just cannot take even a whiff Shrimp, due to texture. Makes me gag and retch. sweet pickles or relish most salad dressings, I only like bleu cheese or homemade vinaigrettes coffee coconut water cottage cheese beer or wine (I do like certain high quality liquors) miracle whip, cool whip, margarine, etc. (fake foods) There are lots of foods for which the circumstances make all the difference: I LOVE bananas with quite a big of green on the peels. If they are yellow or, God forbid, speckled, I despise them. I love fresh sweet-tart, crisp apples like Fuji or Pink Lady, but cannot abide cooked apples. I hate apple pie. In fact, I love fresh fruit but hate most cooked fruit. However, I love cooked broccoli and cauliflower, but hate them raw. Carrots are just the opposite.
  2. My daughter's hair is similar. Mine is super straight and fine. For her first five or six years I was at a loss as to how to take care of her hair and it was a frizzy mess. Now we have a system that works very well. She still has bad hair days here and there but 90% of the time her hair looks great and she gets lots of compliments on it. She washes her hair daily or every other day using a small amount of shampoo (I don't know whether she needs this or not). She puts lots of conditioner on it and rinses it well. We pat it with the towel and then comb it with a wide-tooth comb when she gets out of the shower, then let it air dry for five minutes or so. Finally, we use a tiny dab (pea-size or smaller) of TIGI Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier. I rub it through my hands then apply it to her hair, scrunching it up and ensuring the product VERY lightly coats all of her hair below the crown. I usually put a tiny bit of water on my hands and rub them together to use the last of the product left on my hands. That's it. The bottle we have was spendy but it has lasted eight months or so now and still has a ton left. On days when she doesn't wash her hair, we have to wet it down quite a bit with a squirt bottle in order to make it presentable. I find having her throw her head forward and shaking her hair out after wetting it helps it look nice again.
  3. Fascinating! My great aunt is a UU minister but I have never had a chance to talk to her about her church. Now I'll know some good questions to ask if I see her again (she lives across the country). One for the board: I have seen reference to paid clergy. Are most clergy full time or part time? What kinds of duties are involved? Is a minister expected to visit the sick, do counseling, clean the church, etc? I realize it might change from congregation to congregation.
  4. Rose, you have handled this situation so well! I pray that some day he will understand your love for him. Continuing in prayer for you and your family and your dear son.
  5. All true . . . this made me remember that Safeway is continually said to have the best meat department of the regular stores.
  6. You will never find EVERYTHING you need at Trader Joes, so by sticking with your criteria I would shop at Safeway. I have found their prices to be more reasonable in my area. I would get in the habit of going to both, however. You can get the majority of items at TJs and pick up any leftovers at Safeway. TJs DOES have fresh meat, it is just quite expensive. Pretty soon, you'll get the hang of what each store carries and could do an every other week thing.
