    If he's just starting out cooking, then a nice basic set of knives would certainly get him started. Once he's figured out which ones work for him or not, then HE can go out and get a better one/ones....

    We switched to our local "grown up theater" too. Cinetopia is more expensive, but the amenities are truly worth it: wide leather seats and aisles, steeper theaters so no obstruction from the tall...

    What? A government agency actually doing it's job?! Why isn't that front page news!?

    Seriously, I am sick of "business" complaining about unfair regulation. Stupid.

    Remember, the islands are more expensive, period, let alone for board/feed/bedding. It all comes by boat after all. $550 is on the high end for mainland board (barring urban areas like Seattle). ...

    Good for you! You aren't an old lady, my dear, you are a responsible, bill-paying adult who just schooled those youngsters in proper behavior. Because goodness knows, no one else has apparently.

    I am a morning person, so up at 5:30 no matter the day. I prefer to clean Saturday and Sunday morning: sweep, vac, scrub kitchen, start laundry (there's just me and DH). Sunday I change sheets, do...

    The truth will not set him free, according to his detractors. Sigh. I was pleased to read this, but knew the haters would keep on hating.

    Stop hiring illegal workers. Don't do business with those that do. Expect our economy to stagger and prices of some goods, services and food to rise dramatically or become unavailable. We cannot...

    Kathy-- a little history will show this type of mid-term switch is not new or indicative of a shift of the type you are imagining. Sorry.

    I'd like to think, Bluey, that my Dem/moderate friends get their news from a variety of sources, as I do. NPR, newspapers (real ones, on paper!), non-cable news stations, Internet. We talk,...

    I guess I'm not an average American, since I've never watched Fox. Somehow, I feel left out.....sorry, I made myself laugh!

    Thank you for adding some sources! It is interesting, but go farther back and look into immigration in the colonial period. Or in the 1800s. Take a look at Asian immigration policy or the treatment...

    I'll be happy to discuss issues, if posters cite sources and take the time to be thoughtful, careful posters. I teach English for a living and have a degree in history, so sue me for having some...

    At least be respectful enough to capitalize Mexico, and do some fact and spell checking. No sources, not reliable information. Bracero, wirt.

    Thompsons. Bob Hubbard. American. They will cross the border. Also, ask the vet you are using (or those along the border, like Pilchuck) who they recommend. It really isn't that big a deal to...

    So glad there was a happy story on the news today! My DH and I both commented that if the situation were reversed, the silence would have been deafening. Thank you, Canada!

    I don't find them depressing in the least! Guess it's all in your own perspective, Lady E. StoryCorps is great, and the Moth Radio Hour is full of fantastic stories, too. Well worth listening to.

    I prefer to use my local National Weather Service office instead of TV or Internet apps. Much more accurate, you can often pinpoint your exact location and fine tune the forecast. Try it and see!

    Laugh like hell? Really? How hard is the kick? Front or back? I'd think it is a weird affectation or attention grabber, rather than any trick that would produce a positive effect.
