  2. Utilities
    This may sound insane to some. But to save money on the gas part of our utility bill, I have resorted to taking cold showers in the morning. I know that if I lived anywhere else except humid South texas, I might not be so brave. The way that most houses are set up here, the water pipes are...
  3. Utilities
    Just curious, b/c I have no idea how they calculate how much you owe - I mean its not per gallon is it? Anyone know how much you can save by shortening your showers by 5 minutes? I read on another board, and she said no matter how long of a shower they took it was always the same......... I...

  5. Money challenges
    Where I work we have a good percentage of fairly young people. When someone is having a baby or getting married, etc. we gladly have a shower for them.

  9. Weddings and bridal showers
    Can you describe to me what one is like (a typical one) in your area? For us it's like this: We have about 15-20 hostesses, sometimes we have the shower at a hostesses home and sometimes it's a church in a fellowship hall or at the community building. We have a nice center piece and serve...
  10. Pregnancy
    I did with our first born. When our oldest dd was on her way, I was invited to a baby shower for a friend who had a boy. When I got to the shower, there were baby gifts wrapped in blue and in pink. I didn't have a clue why until they started opening up the shower gifts and handed me...
  11. General Chat
    Does anyone else like doing this? I saw it on the msn homepage and thought it should be shared. We usually go out a couple times to see them. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5498157/?GT1=4244

    I love to watch the meteor showers, seeing a shooting star is such an awesome sight. This week (started last night) and through next week is the time to watch the Lyrid Meteor Showers. I live in a rural area so I can see them beautifully. Here are a few tips from AOL about watching them...

  15. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    This is one topic that never fails to confuse me..and one that I don't think I have a real personal opinion on yet.. Would you be ok with it if someone threw you a baby shower for your second born? Do you personally think it's tacky or do you think its just another happy occasion to...
