Re: How many TV's and Where?

Wanda, I love hearing that you bought that flat screen with your not smoking money! That's the healthiest reason for a tv that I have ever heard...good for you!

Re: How many TV's and Where?

We have 2: one in our family room with rabbit ears, a TIVO box, and assorted game systems; the other in our bedroom, with a Roku box and DVD player. We cancelled our cable about 9 mos ago, shifting to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and a Roku box, and we have barely missed it. We have, however, enjoyed all ...

Re: Keratosis Pilaris

Mine has decreased over the years; the fact that I can't really tell you when is an indicator of my getting used to it. I don't know about where you are, but as far as swimwear goes around here, a lot of girls (and guys) wear rash guards; not as cute as a bikini, but if she is really self conscious ...

Re: Keratosis Pilaris

I didn't know what this was, so I just looked it up...and it is something I have had as long as I can remember, though it has lessened as the years have gone by. I guess if it is bothering her cosmetically then you can try skin softening and mild exfoliant approaches; I don't have any particular all...

Re: Doing laundry for kids

15 years ago, a wise friend/mom told me that if a kid could operate a VCR, s/he could work a washing machine! Update that to an XBox, perhaps, and I still think it's true. Of course, reaching it is another matter... The decision, then, is probably based on not whether a child is capable of doing it,...

Re: Cucumber Sandwiches....

A tiny bit of...fresh dill? I think that's what I've had. Very dainty, feathery fresh herb.

Re: sermon from 4/21

Just by the chance of scheduling done months before, since December I have ended up the primary preacher on the Sunday after Newtown, after the mom of a 9 y.o. in the congregation was buried, after a 16 y.o. in our congregation died very suddenly and his dad had a heart attack, and now this past wee...

sermon from 4/21

I was the preacher last Sunday, and I thought some of you might like to see my thoughts after yet another week of tragedies... Easter 4, Yr. C John 10:22-30, Revelation 7:9-17, Psalm 23 4/21/13 I am weary of crying over lives of promise that won't be fulfilled. • Raise me up, Jesus! I am weary of mo...

Re: Clotheslines/washing lines

I use a clothes rack and have had a clothes line in the past, and a moderate number of my friends do the same. But I know from comparison with my sister who lives in Australia and our exchange students from there that whereas they probably do 95% on the line, we probably do 95% in the dryer. Really ...

Just did some searching, and it is the Dragon Slayers' Academy series. Very funny!

Re: Good series for 10 y.o. boy?

Thought of a few others: The Narnia books (start with The Lion etc., and then figure out the order in which they make sense, which is not the order in which they were written...I think it would be Prince Caspian, then Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but I might have those switched, and then the others)....

Re: Easter Sunday traditions

No surprise here: church! I always have two services, and the family usually comes to one of them, though this year they may come to the Great Vigil of Easter on Saturday night--long but glorious, and officially the first celebration of Easter--and sleep in on Sunday morning. My SIL then hosts us fo...

Re: Good series for 10 y.o. boy?

Ranger's Apprentice is what immediately came to mind for me; it is a wonderful series (try to read them in order, as they do build on one another).

Re: Cookbook for Fundraiser?

I have been tangentially involved a few times and I can tell you that it is a ton more work than it appears to be! The improvement on the last one, about two years ago, was that people could input their recipes electronically. That was good, except for the people who don't do that and instead hand y...

Re: So what is everyone cooking/baking for the holidays?

We're going to my mom's for Christmas and just need to take appetizers and a fruit salad. With 3 out of 8 people at the table having to watch sugar & carb intake, I have convinced my mom that we can cut back a bit on the menu; for example, we don't need potatoes and stuffing and rolls :roll: The...

Re: Spinoff.... older kids and hairstyles/color

Esther, Stephen is doing No-shave November too, and man is he looking scruffy! He grows a pretty heavy beard fairly quickly but without the edges trimmed, it is quite messy. Only 11 days in and his appearance seems very different, even though his hair is just the same. His 18th birthday is the 29th,...

Re: Spinoff.... older kids and hairstyles/color

In 5th grade, Stephen started growing his hair; by the end of 6th, it was down his back, long enough to donate to Locks of Love when he finally did get it cut. We told him he had to keep it neat and clean, and he did that, aided by hair that naturally falls quite nicely. Since then, he has slowly cu...

Re: Shoes in the house question

We tend to take ours off in the house, but not necessarily at the door unless they are really wet or muddy. Guests are welcome to do so or not. We have no carpeting; if I did, I would probably be more inclined to enforce a no shoes policy with my own family.
