  1. I've been looking into the Great Courses Plus stuff a little bit too. Can anyone tell me about the quality of the lectures?
  2. Thanks! Sounds like maybe I want an Oster. Or one that comes with a single serving jar. But one of the things I was looking at had to do with laundry soap that they were cooking up, putting in jars, then blending in the jar because it cooled when it separated, and then putting a top on for storage. That sounded really handy, not just for soap, but for things like chopped nuts and whatnot. Blending it right in the storage container would save me the mess I always make when transferring, AND I wouldn't have to wash out the blender pitcher, just the base. Anyway...thanks! :)
  3. If so, what kind of blender do you have? Recently I've seen several things online that state that you can screw the base of your blender on to a standard mason jar and use it like a Magic Bullet. That sounds really handy to me, but I've tried my blender with both regular and wide-mouth mason jars and it's too big for one and too small for the other. Have any of you tried this? Does it work with your blender? I need a new one soon anyway, and this might be a nice "feature" to have. But I haven't been able to determine which brands of blenders are actually constructed this way.
  4. Rats! Foiled again. If it hadn't been for those pesky kids and their dog...

  5. Sorry - I had already caught you. ;)

  6. 72 cookies hidden here!

    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took two(and then three and then four and so on...) cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the type in red so that the numbers each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  7. Oh, you are so kind. I'm blushing It is definitely something I've put some study and thought into over the years, because it's important to me. More sporadically than I probably should. But I think each person brings a unique perspective, and I have learned a great deal from people who came into the church later in life than I.

  8. Just about everything I've ever read that you wrote, is what I am referring to. I was looking back at some old posts of mine and posts you made, contemplating on the gospel...

    They say to keep it simple, but when some of you have been members for your lifetimes and soaking up all that stuff since you were some of my is hard to keep up with you all. :)

  9. Thanks! :) I have no idea to what you might be referring today, but ego appreciates the boost nonetheless. (hee hee)

  10. You rock. You are a rock. You are able to express yourself so well!

  11. Well, we've BTDT but ds was older than your dd at the time. He whined and complained every time and we tried all sorts of tricks and bribes to get it down him because it made such a difference. After a while I had them put some flavoring in it at the pharmacy because they were advertizing some new flavoring system for liquid meds they'd just gotten, and let him pick the flavor. Evidently that just made it worse, but he was old enough to be reasoned with and understood that HE was the one who chose the flavor and I couldn't afford to just go buy another bottle. After that bottle was gone he was better about taking it, especially if he had a glass of juice nearby to wash away the flavor ASAP. But what really finally got rid of the drama was when we tried a trial off meds after he'd been on it for about 2 years and we stuck out the horrible behavior (and dished out appropriate consequences each time) for a few weeks. Just about the time I'd had it with him and was about to force the issue, he decided on his own that it was much easier to behave when he was on his meds, and he WANTED to be able to be good, so he ASKED to have his meds back. It hasn't been a huge problem since then. And the same thing happened in the last trial off meds, but he came around a bit sooner this time. But again, he was...oh I think seven or so when we first started all this, so I don't know that our experience will be much help for you. SORRY! When dd started taking meds recently we got her one that came in a capsule and could be opened and sprinkled on yogurt or whatever. The powder seemed to be easier to deal with than the liquid we'd been forcing down ds all those years. I don't know what med your dd is on, but if it comes in a capsule form, that might be easier to deal with than liquid. Maybe. Both of our kids practiced pill-swallowing with tic-tacs until they could do it smoothly, and for both of them the "reward" was not having to taste that nasty medicine. But again, they were both older when they were put on meds long term, so I don't know that this would work well for a little. You know, though, the more I think about it, it seems like when I had to give ds medicine--for a fever or whatever--when he was little, the best way I found to do it was to put it in a syringe, and then hold him on my lap, kicking and screaming (he always did, when he saw it coming), and work the syringe as far back as I could into his mouth before squirting the medicine out. Even if he had his little teeth clenched, if I squirted it at the back of his cheek, he'd usually swallow at least most of it just out of reflex. (He was not a fun baby in ever so very many ways, and he was a nightmare as a's so nice to have those days behind us.) There was no way he'd eat it in yogurt or applesauce either, and the squirting it in the back of his mouth bit was the only method that reliably worked with him.
  12. Thanks for the heads-up, I'll go see if I can be of any help. :)
