    I signed up, but every time I go to the site and try to find a task, it says something like "Follow the directions provided and get awarded LoanCreds for posting various things online"... and then...

    I wish I loved those questions! I'm in career-switching mode, finishing up a Master's degree, and so I suppose most of the questions I'm likely to encounter are going to be these types of questions....
  4. Stumbling through questions during interview...

    I had an interview today that went fairly well, with the exception of this question from an HR person: "Tell me about a time you took a risk and what the outcome was." I *hate* those...

    I eat it with some sort of alfredo sauce and chicken sausage. I sometimes add pine nuts.

    I have the Costco bath mat that you have, and had the same problems with it slipping. I like it so much that I decided to just put a rubber mat underneath. Problem solved!

    Maybe a plant? Not sure if that would be too girly and/or unromantic...

    I told my hubby that I wanted a plant for V-day. Lasts longer than flowers. :)

    This is the biggest hassle we've run across since getting our second dog (adopted in March). Our first dog is a seasoned traveler and very well-behaved, so he's welcome basically anywhere. Our...

    I saw a few things for 80% off (a sweater and some children's breeches), but I had to go searching in their Closeout section. I have to admit, I was hoping for a bunch of 80% off items!

    Not for most tack shops. I'm sure Horze is still making a profit, but the tack shops I've worked for made around 40% profit at full retail price on the vast majority of their products.

    Wow. I don't think I'll be selling a saddle on eBay again after reading that thread. :eek:

    Sigh... so the seller claims that this isn't the saddle he sent. :rolleyes: :no: I had to file a dispute with eBay. Thankfully, he promptly responded that he'll issue a refund once I send the...
  13. Dispute with eBay seller (was cost to repair stitching?)

    I bought a saddle off eBay. I've bought/sold saddles through eBay in the past and never had an issue until now. The seller said that the saddle (a Prestige Andrea Palladio) had no blemishes, which...

    I just got my box of goodies, and I love it all!

    I got the Venice bridle, and like others here, I'm really impressed with the quality of the leather for a $38 bridle. It's comparable to an old...

    That's not what I was saying. I was just saying it doesn't hurt to try... which I guess is where you disagree, but if someone's negotiating skills are poor or too aggressive, then that's their...

    I get that there's a range that a company is willing to pay for a position, but they will try to get the lowest salary possible out of an employee--and why shouldn't they? A company isn't going to...

    Agreed with the second part, but not the first. Not negotiating is one of the biggest reasons women aren't paid as well as men. It's highly unlikely that a company will pass on someone they've just...

    Dated approximately 10 months. I had antsy moments, but only after we had gone ring shopping... He'd had the ring for a while (or at least it felt like a while to me). I sort of accused him of...

    I kept my name. When I was discussing it with my then-fiance, I think a small part of him wanted me to change it to his last name until I asked him if he'd change his last name to mine, and he...

    What's probably killing them isn't the over-feeding per se, but ammonia/nitrite/nitrate build-up. Do you have a filter on the tank? If not, get one; otherwise, weekly water changes in a 3.5 gallon...

    By looking at my monthly expenses and finding out where the money's going. Add up what you spent on going out last month (and I mean ALL of it). It'll probably make you go :eek:

    Thanks again for all the tips! I'll pick up those books at some point. :) (And yes, he's the spender, I'm the tightwad. :D)

    Try using Country Crock (or other spreadable) butter. My cookies always "spread out" and end up exactly like that when I use spreadable butter. I actually gave up making cookies for a long time...

    FWIW, I've taken a tour of the Dehner boot factory, and they certainly do make their boots right there in Omaha (in case there was any doubt ;) ). I don't know where they get their leather, but they...
