    Yep. Caught it from my husband almost two weeks ago and am just now starting to feel more like the living rather than the living dead. This flu is just plain nasty.

    This!

    I can understand wanting a special couple's day...glad you're telling your boyfriend what you want - no fair getting mad without letting him know what you'd like, first!

    I always appreciate a tip, but it's never necessary. Most of the people who do tip, tip between $3 - $10. A few are more generous - I once received a memorable $150 for what I considered to be an...

    I make a very good popover and I have lovely old popover cups to work with. Make sure to preheat your cups to sizzling hot (I throw mine in the oven while it preheats to 400*) and divide up my butter...

    That goes both ways. I registered to vote outside a supermarket when I moved 20 years ago, and was shocked to find that my "Decline to state" was changed to "Republican" - and yes, I did stop at a...

    Wow. She sounds like a sister from another mother to my grandmother, who retired from playing the organ for the church after 74 years at the age of 90 in 2011.

    Sounds like your mom is well loved.
