  1. We purchased this one and it has held up for at least 6 visits with mutiple day stays for almost 500 pounds unlike the ones we bought at Sam's Club, Target (Serta, Coleman, etc.) which all failed in a day or so:
  2. I am a former catholic who still feels drawn to it since it was my home very much so but doctrinally I disagreed with too much. I have found the episcopal church very refreshing since it welcomes everyone to the table both believers and nonbelievers. And it has the rituals I missed:)
  3. Are you able to get good prices from Amazon? Do you allow Amazon to sell for you or do you sell yourself?
  4. My son is almost done with highschool and I have a lot of homeschool materials to sell. Does anyone have any tips for selling that protects the buyer and me? Any tips on shipping? Any links to tutorials? I was looking on ebay seller page but my first impression is that it seems geared to big sellers which I don't plan on being. For example, there is ebay shipping which seems interesting and easy but seems like it is geared to big sellers or am I wrong? I am also open to selling here but am looking for tips for on how to do so in such a way to protect the buyer and me. I appreciate any information.
  5. I disagree with Garga since it lays the blame on these folks for not preparing for a plan B. Of course, I believe in personal responsibility but I also believe in compassion and amnesty for folks like the ones under TPS. The thing that gets me the maddest is I truly believe that the current one in charge of our country is doing this for vindictive reasons and to undo every single thing his predecessor has done.
  6. I am guessing they are not choosing to go to countries that are overrun with violence and poverty or other disasters.
  7. I think it is heartless and beyond cruel to suddenly kick them out of our country where they have been for years and many of the younger ones only know America as their home and have no memory or knowledge of the the countries they fled. I read of one DACA teen who committed a minor offense and hence was deported from the only home he remembers and he desperately tried to come back by being smuggled in a truck and ended up dying as a result. Just imagine one of your teens who only know America being deported to a place where they know nothing about and may not even speak the language. I think it is horrific. As for the Haitians here on temporary status and I also appalled at their plight since many of these folks have set down roots and have American children and now we want to send them back! Unbelievable. Folks forget that we are running out of young people here too in this country and that immigration does benefit us. If Congress really wanted to enforce immigration laws they would enforce hiring practices but will not since businesses want access to illegal immigrants too. I say lets have worker visas and what not.
  8. There are many recipes for whole chickens so I think it will be fine. Are you browning first and cooking on a trivet above liquid or partly submerged in liquid? Either way is fine but above the liquid is more likely to leave it intact. I find that youtube is a great resource for instant pot recipes especially since you can see results.
  9. There is Metamucil with artificial sweetener and there are some without as well. Putting it in baked goods is great but I am not sure if it has the same effect as taking a heaping tablespoon in glass of water followed by another plain glass of water. Of course you would have to work up to this and check with your doctor. Atkins recommended this in one of his books. You do have to make sure you drink plenty of water though so as to not cause constipation with it. This link may have it but I read some of the reviews who said they were sent the artificially sweetened product. I have seen plain psylium husks though at Trader Joe's, Amazon, and Whole Foods.
  10. What about a glass of Metamucil a couple times a day. Check with your doctor and don't take within 2 hours of meds and no later than 3 hours before bedtime. You may find the extra fiber helps with keeping you full.
  11. I am thinking a college strong in software engineering, IT, robotics, etc as well as humanities. Physics and Biology as well.
  12. Any suggestions for colleges like that? Having academic dorms that are readily available for all 4 years is a plus.
  13. St John's College seems interesting but it is not highly selective although I am not sure that matters all the time. Plus how is St. John's for those who may have a career in STEM? My likes both STEM and humanities but I also want him to be able to get a good job:) I am also interested in colleges that offer some sort of merit aid or that are not as pricey.
  14. Is it in a safe neighborhood? I ask because a family attended Temple and his roommate was shot and killed one block off campus:(
