    THE SNEEZE They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-two students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With their rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt. Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and...

    As we are starting to get overrun with cucumbers, I'm hoping to try my hand at making pickles this summer. I've spent time surfing and I find a lot of recipes seem to need quite a few ingredients which kind of scares me. Anyone have a simple/easy tried and true recipe? (Can be dill or sweet...

    I'm actually looking for a firm polenta recipe not the porridge style. I have never made it before but would like to start instead of purchasing it. In addition to the more standard recipe I'd also be interested in a Crock Pot version of the recipe if someone has one that they like!

    If you are 35 , or older, you might think this is hilarious! When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways...

    Everytime I go to the grocery store I see a lot of mixes that look convenient but have a lot of ingredients that I can't pronounce. And I've decided if I can't pronounce it, I probably don't need to put it in my body. I've also decided that I could probably create some of these mixes at home...

    It seems one of the more popular ways of saving money at the grocery store is clipping coupons. Now I think that's great if it works for you, but I've tried the coupon clipping and it wasn't all that effective for me - primarily because most of the coupons I see are for products I don't use or...

    I was watching HBO last night (I get it for free) and they advertised an encore presentation of Season 2 of True Blood. I can't wait!!! I liked Season 1 and loved the books. I just wish the sex wasn't so explicit. I believe it starts at the end of March. Does anyone else like this series?

    When Hubby and I got married, we did so it in a church. And so with that, besides, having a NYC marriage license, we have a "church" marriage certificate as well. (2 separate papers) Well all's well on the license. However, the certificate has our last named spelled wrong. They ended it on A...

    My ds#2 had surgery in Aug and the bill was about 2x what I was told to expect. I got the INS statement yesterday and it said we only owe $$ dollars. They said that it was $$$$ over and above allowed for the procedure and that we would not be billed for that amount. They have the correct...
