    Working on the DR plan, but have never agreed with the $1k clunker- where I'm from, a $1k car will be costing you another $500 a month in repairs, easy. Time to get rid of my '01, which at 132,000 miles is beginning to need extensive work, and we recently figured out we've been spending maybe...

  3. Family
    So, in October, I told mom that I didn't want to have a houseful this year. Last year I had an extra 6 people stay here for a week. My SIL expected to be waited on hand and foot. Having 8 kids in the house, 3 newly adopted from an orphanage with parents who just wanted a break from them wasn't...
  4. Crockpot
    I just got a crockpot last weekend. I'd like to cook a whole chicken in it. I don't want any seasonings at all, just plain. Can someone tell me how to do this? Do I need to add water? High or low? And how long? Thank you!

    Ok I am going to vent here. When I was growing up my mother really empahsized watching what you say. Thanks so much Mom ! However it seems that lately people have been saying to me and asking me such rude things. It is unbelievable ? What ever happened to the basics like: "Think about what you...

    So I was going to make salmon with rice for dinner but the fillet looked funky so I tossed it (arg!). The rice is already going (just plain 1/2 white 1/2 brown rice) and I thought maybe I could use some kidney beans from my cupboard. So...what can I do with these other than just toss them...

    I am such a guilt driven person - from the earliest years of my life  I thought if something went wrong I caused it somehow. talking on the boards here brings it right back home - if someone has a gripe or makes a remark I think its all aimed at me. You would think someone could outgrow a guilty...

    This really isn't about candle making, but candle embellishing.... I buy many candles on clearance and most at yard sales and decorate them..... Here's few things I have done....... I would just like to note that a pillar candle only burns down the middle, although it can leak wax down the...
