  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, all. I wound up getting a Dyson, and so far am loving it. :)
  3. And now I'm watching this QVC thing. Is this the Shark we're talking about? Am I understanding right that you don't have to change out filters or belts on this thing?
  4. I think I've been reading up on this too much. Now I can't even decide if I want a canister or upright.
  5. Now that sounds tempting, trulycrabby. I, too, have an immense hatred of vacuuming. Which the current state of my carpets will enthusiastically attest to.
  6. Between here and the other thread (thanks for the link!) it looks like Miele and the Shark are definite front runners around here. Does anyone have the Delphi model of Miele? That looks like the least expensive one with the power brush head. I'd be interested in your impressions of how well the brush works. Also, how often do you have to change the bag? Just trying to get an idea. For Shark users, how well does it work on stairs?
  7. Thanks all. Some here I've never even heard of. Will definitely be looking into your recommendations. :) Homeschool moms know best, I tell ya.
  8. I think I need a new one, but haven't done any research on brands or models yet. I can't afford one of the high end monsters, I just need a good, basic vacuum cleaner. We do have a dog that sheds, so there's dog fur to deal with, but it's short and doesn't tend to tangle in a beater brush. Low maintenance would be good. I fence sit about bags versus bagless--on the one hand, I can never seem to find the right kind of bags at the store, but on the other hand, the bagless one we have now loses suction before the canister is half full, and makes a mess when you empty it. I like "on board" tool storage, because if I put the attachments in a closet somewhere they inevitably get buried, or else they're always on the other floor of the house when I need them and I don't feel like running off to fetch them. What else should I be thinking about? What do you love/hate about your vacuum. Any specific recommendations? Talk to me.
  9. 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! :)
  10. 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.
  11. Rats! Foiled again. If it hadn't been for those pesky kids and their dog...

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

  13. 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!
