    What's up with the price of bedding?

    Nancy, Just like Carola and MadnNats Mom, I use to use a duvet cover until I discovered how much easier it is to use a top sheet. My DH is the same way, so I keep it untucked. Costco is a place I have found great prices and often (but not always) a-la-carte items (not in a set) and...

    Any jewelry makers here?

    I have been making jewelry for about 5 years. Recently, in the past year, I have stepped it up. I am learning new techniques and business seems to be increasing. I am also a dental hygienist. I am only working in hygiene 3 days a week (that's one reason the jewelry is growing!) To anyone...

    bonding teeth??

    How long? First, check out what Darla said. Lots of dentists ignore perio (when I discovered that I was very surprised, shocked!) Dental hygienists, as opposed to periiodontists, treat perio disease without surgery. Sometimes surgery is the only way. But many cases fall into a gray area...

    Dear Mariah, Yes. That is just my opinion. But this is not your last week on earth. Save some of yourself for next week. It is possible that you have that much energy and need to channel it in a good way. I just know I would never recommend it to anyone if I didn't want to get sued...

    New DVD Replacement Update – Nov 7th

    Thank you so much. I noticed a freeze in one of the DVD's I previewed, about 20 seconds close to the beginning. I think it was LIC, but didn't write it down. I will preview again. Haven't previewed B&G yet. With much gratitude, Connie L.

    bonding teeth??

    Another way to fix it is with invisalign, invisible braces. You would have to wear a retainer when it is all done. After a while you only need to wear the retainer once a week or once a month. What you describe is called a diastema (pronounced dy AST ah ma)and diastemas relapse more than...

    Low Impact Circuit "Big Clip" is Now Up

    RE: Low Impact Circuit Wow. It played perfect the first time. I am using a Compaq Presario laptop new in 2004. Don't quite know all the specs. Windows XP, and I have a newly wiped disk with Windows reinstalled, and no other browser windows open. I have not been in a regular exercise...

    Any Home Security System Users Out There?

    We have something different. We have a system of cameras and a monitor that shows all views at once, sort of like the ones you see in commercial establishments. The ones they make now are wonderful and have some very nice features. We bought it at Costco (discount warehouse store). It's...

    Same thing happened to me as clothesminded. The name of the bug I had was Clostridium difficile. California is a red-flag state, my NP told me. She put me on metronidazole (Flagyl) and it cleared up. The symptoms went away gradually. Meanwhile I felt like I could have died. It was very...

    Book Recs for Depressed Individual

    I know some really good books. Nelson DeMille's books are very worth reading. They are full of action, excitement, psychological suspense, human nature, and a satisfying ending. They are full of faith and humor as well. They are positive yet realistic. Get your friend any one of DeMille's...

    The original IMAX

    The first step segment turns you away from the TV. That is the worst of it. It is really simple except for that very beginning turn. If you preview once before doing it, it is much more approachable.

    Getting back to cardio

    You are on a right track. Basic Step is very good. It has just a few subtle simplifiers that make it more attainable. Low Impact Step is another simpler one. Give yourself a chance to acclimate. Since you're new, you will notice the most rapid changes in the beginning. Enjoy!
