    Yeah, none of those single serving packages and I don't see whole milk yogurt with fruit in it either. Big containers of either plain or vanilla seem to be in every grocery store. I buy it for DH...

    Enter the data on the W-2 into your tax software, pressing "add another" when asked about the state info. Here is an example in Turbotax, using a guy who worked in NY, yet lived in NJ.

    On the car purchase, you can deduct the sales tax, but it doesn't usually make sense unless you live in a state with no income tax. In order to deduct it, you have to itemize. And, you have to...

    OP, are you working with a trainer? Every post you've had here is about being afraid, falling, other's accidents or confusion about what seat you should be riding in while jumping. I'm worried for...

    Patrick, you've come here, specifically, to do some mansplaining to a bunch of silly horse ladies?

    Good luck with that.

    According to the CDC most measles outbreaks are caused by Americans travelling overseas, not by foreign nationals visiting here. Case in point, the 2014 outbreak started by an unvaccinated Amish...

    Yep. Those who refuse to vaccinate their healthy children are parasites, relying on the willingness of OTHERS to vaccinate to protect their own children. Enough parasites and the host starts...

    Snow? Really?

    I hate these "active cycles", as the weather folks call them. We had one a few years ago, where it snowed a significant amount every other darned day. I felt like I did nothing but shovel and go to...

    I agree with you. My father died at home and it took a week and it was awful. We had hospice nurses in and out, but only the last one was truly great and a totally take charge person. We all got on...

    Ok, I doubt anyone is really an aficianado of hospice or end of life ;). But, I get what you mean anyway.

    I heard an interesting take on it on the radio recently. A woman said that her father...

    Really. I read the text of the bill and followed the references to other parts of the penal code. The way it's worded, a teacher could shoot a student who was trying to make off with a soccer ball,...

    Yep. After two full days of intense snow shovelling, I have been extremely hungry. I wouldn't expect not to be! Burning calories for the work and burning calories to stay warm, probably twice or...

    I don't believe most of them do. Vitamin companies, and those who shill for them, recommend vitamin supplementation ;). "Food first" is what I've always heard from nutritionists and physicians. When...

    For sure! I am a perfectly rational adult who will eat, or at least try, nearly anything. NOT a fussy eater. I have not, however, eaten a stuffed pepper in 8 years. An hour or two after I'd made a...

    That's exactly the approach with took with my 12 year old, when he went through this phase at around age 7. And, it was a phase, none of us are vegetarian, but his budding empathy for animals caused...

    Talk to the police in the town(s) you'll be travelling through. Back during and after the Blizzard of 1978 we had a travel ban that lasted days and days. My trainer, who lived near me, got a pass...

    Latest "official" NWS approved, measure is 35.8". Yee haw! I'm 52 and this is the biggest 24 hour snowfall I've ever seen in Massachusetts. Everything hurts ;).

    So annoying! If you look at CNN or other national news sites, it's all about "snowperbole" for "Blizzard 2015" and being angry that the forecasters got it wrong. No mention of the rest of us....

    Yep, we're officially at 30" now too, per NWS spotter. Tied with Framingham for 2nd place, with poor Auburn in the lead with 32.5". It's still snowing too!

    Well, crap. I'm measuing no less than 20" anywhere in the yard, some areas at 29" or so. The driveway is 700 feet long and neither the plow truck nor the front end loader will start. Truck has a...

    Yeah, it's iffy whether it's worth shovelling with the wind. I cleared the front door and steps at 6am, so the young dog could go out. By 7am, it was buried again, huge drifts, bigger than the...

    No photos yet, it still dark. The dog just had to go pee at 6:00am. No, the forecast was not wrong! It's hard to tell, due to drifting, but there must be close to two feet out there. I shovelled...

    Bingo, KateKat! It's passive aggressive. The friend, or whatever he is, sounds very much like my DH.
