Awesome, CM! My foreign-country mission companion didn't screw up with the dishwasher, but she did mess with other kitchen appliances. She put milk in a cereal bowl and set it directly onto a burner of the stove to heat the milk. The bowl shattered all over the place. Her other famous one was that s...

A few people have said (KSS, I'm looking at you in particular) that they oppose the phrasing of the Prop 8 marriage definition. This blog post by a Catholic talks about the religious freedom aspect of this whole situation, and one of the commenters contends that the California attorney general delib...

KareNin, I don't think your fears for Obama's safety are unfounded or over-reacting, and neither does the Secret Service. There's a new series about the election on Newsweek (beginning here - fascinating reading) stating that Secret Service protection was given to the Obama family nearly a year earl...

Since hot.man. brought up possible Church action with other countries relating to SSM, I'm starting to wonder about the Church's interaction with other states within the US on this issue. California is certainly not the first state to vote on a constitutional amendment forbidding SSM - it's about th...

WNL, I don't know if there's a general map like that - urban vs. rural. But I have seen breakdowns specific to spending categories, and they go state by state. Like here's the state-by-state breakdown of national security grants (dollars per person), or the breakdown of transportation money, or the ...

Adhis, what's been your experience with the ING account? Does anyone else have this type of account? Good? Bad? Recommended? I like getting a higher interest rate on my savings while it's still such a small amount (no point in starting a money market account until there's actually something to put i...

Those are amazing rates, Adhis. I did some housecleaning work while hubby was in law school and got paid $20 an HOUR. That was a good gig while it lasted.

WNL, the born alive issue is not so cut and dry as Obama's opponents would have you believe. The rest of the story, as I've heard it is: 1. That bill never made it out of committee, so it was never voted on to become a law. 2. Obama voted against it because he said that there were other things in th...

Nebraska and Maine already split their electoral votes by Congressional district - article about it: http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/09/09/nebraska-split-electoral-college-draws-obama-attention/ They've never actually had to do it - those states have always gone entirely for one candidate in the p...

I share the concern about low temple attendance at current temples with the contruction of new ones - my concern is the DC Temple when Philadelphia is finished. Jersey Girl mentions crowded parking on Saturdays - it's like that in the morning and early afternoon. By 4 pm, it's empty. My husband and ...

I'll bite, steelem, but hopefully this isn't a flame. There's a difference between hardball and complete and utter disdain. Like Momma and Coolboy said, you can disagree without thinking the other person is Satan, and Obama was far more polite during the debate than McCain. I don't mind hardball que...

One of my friends left her son in the crib until he was 3, so it's not going to hurt to leave your son in the crib past turning 2. The advice I got was to leave the toddler in the crib until they figure out how to climb out of it, and then switch to a bed. If your son hasn't learned to go to sleep w...

AdamOndi, I was like that for awhile too - my brothers went to Hong Kong and Germany at the same time I went to Fresno California. I didn't even change time zones and went further from my home to the MTC than to my mission. But now they're jealous that I served close instead of far away because I we...

There's a blog I found recently with ONLY crockpot recipes - the writer is trying to use the crockpot every single day in 2008 with a different recipe every time. So far, she's on track.

Question for people who canceled their land line phone and use only cells: what do you do for your internet connection?

I'm also interested in seeing what ideas the brainiacs here have. I'm tired of reading online "advice" articles about saving money that tell me to eat out less than 2 or 3 times a week and to make my own coffee at home. We eat out only 2 or 3 times a year (our birthdays and anniversary, if...
