  1. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Evidently professional boxing and singing pay well or moms and dads are underwriting.
  2. No kidding! I have two grown stepdaughters with families - New Orleans and St. Petersburg. One could squeeze us in, the other can’t. We always stay at a hotel when visiting. We’re headed to St. Pete in a few weeks and are staying in an Airbnb for the first time just 4 blocks from their house.

    Well that's cool that you know the agent! I thought the couple were nice too. Professional; ballroom dancers are amazing athletes.
  4. What's For Dinner?

    We went out to dinner with friends. The gents had the swordfish special served with polenta and a veggie medley. The other lady had crab cakes. Good choice - this restaurant has good crab cakes. I ordered scallops which came with grilled asparagus and risotto. It came with a bourbon sauce that I thought was too sweet but my husband loved. Guess he can eat the leftovers I brought home.

    We have propane that fuels our furnace, water tank, and stove. It's an underground tank we have filled about twice a year. Maybe my JennAir range is special, but I never smell gas when I light a burner. In my last house I had a builder grade GE range using natural gas - same thing - no odor when lighting a burner. Even if I got a whiff for a second, I'd take it over electric.

    Natural gas and propane have odorants added in case of a leak. Once the gas is burning, they are consumed and can't be smelled. If you can smell them, your range is not working properly.
  7. Small Talk: The Wagon

    Yeah, you're not in the country where the show is airing is annoying. My cable company has an app for watching TV on tablets and phones. This year when we were in Europe I tried to use it and got the message that the internet address indicated I wasn't in the US.

    Gas stove fan - easier to control heat level. Have used both, gas all the way.
  9. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Cleveland couple: We need 2 living spaces so we can throw the kids in there and not be bothered by them. 1) So why did you have kids? 2) And decide to have 4? The youngest was still in a high chair. You can't leave a toddler unsupervised. Twits. And don't get me started om the Dad spending hours sitting on a toilet with a laptop;
  10. Small Talk: Don't Tell Jeffrey!

    We haven't been to the Rodin, but are going back to Paris next September. I think we should see it, especially it's proximity to Rue de Cler.
  11. Small Talk: Don't Tell Jeffrey!

    The first time we went to Paris 3 years ago we couldn't get in the Musee d'Orsay because the Seine was flooded. We made it the next year, along with a trip to Versailles that we didn't have time for the previous year. Absolutely breathtaking. And we were there on a weekend so we got to see the fountains.

    My friend was just interviewed by a news crew and is going to be on the Today Show during the 7 am hour tomorrow. ETA: This is my friend in New Bern, NC. She also said she was not wearing any makeup, and has a stain on her shirt. lol
  13. "It's teeny!": the World of Healthcare

    I posted on the annoy thread that I woke up in the wee hours yesterday and that I was watching Bewitched on Logo in hopes it would lull me to sleep, and this commercial came on every commercial break! Makes me wonder if there is marketing research that says insomniacs will call in to buy this crap.
  14. Her obsession with white, oh no, the air conditioning unit is yellow, not white, was borderline you need therapy lady!
  15. I woke up in the wee hours this morning and couldn't go back to sleep. I got up to watch some mindless TV in hopes of falling asleep. I settled on Bewitched on Logo. I swear they ran the same 2 commercials every break, 1 for a battery operated device that pulled out pimples and 1 for a small battery device you could use to shape your eyebrows. Has market research shown that insomniacs will "call now"?
