I'm with you. I hate mine, and they were the top rated ones when I bought them. I have been looking at the new top loading ones when I need to replace mine, which looks to be pretty soon.

Man, I just don't get the IKEA hysteria. Never been in a store, just online. Just not impressed. What am I missing?

Hard as I try I can't get up without using my hand behind me to balance myself. I can get down without help just not up! Guess I get a 9. Guess I need to work on something new now. It's always something.

They sure are trying to sexualize our little girls. They even have padded bras for them. I have both grandsons and granddaughters and see what you are talking about. I have to admit though that it's much better than when my kids were small.

None of my kids watch the news on television. Or much of anything else on the major networks. It's mostly Netflix. I think they watch a few of the newer series/comedies on USA network or other cable channels. News is found on the internet.

Just checked a different website. It has Obama over Romney in St Clair county

We were with some friends last night and one of them was looking up the election numbers from Madison and St Clair counties. Both went for Romney. We were all shocked.

Amazing photos. I am especially struck by the photo of the Pennsylvania site. There is virtually nothing left of the plane.

Your ability to hang in there lasted a lot longer than mine. I dumped him after the tingle up my leg statement. Yeah we know he's a commentator and not a journalist, but c'mon Chris!

Just say it out loud. Kerfuffle. It's fun! Colorful. How about the term donnybrook? Another good word. Channel 9 has the local news show by that name.

Yes, what is going on? Is it the heat? Chicago is having an even worse year for shootings and murders. I don't know how that could factor in for car wrecks though. Maybe hot pavement causing tire blow outs?

My son's friend Martin Baker is running in the first district. You're right, it's a done deal that who ever wins the Democratic primary wins the seat. I have read that the seat has been held by a Democrat since 1949 and by a Clay since 1969. Not very good odds for a Republican or Carnahan it would seem.

My hardy hibiscus and Knock Outs aren't showing much distress either. My old fashioned lilacs-probably planted in the early 60's are surprisingly not so lucky.

I'm getting ready to pull some of the half dead flowers out of their containers. Some of them look really pitiful. Plus I'm getting really tired of watering when it does no good with this heat. I moved some of the "sun" annuals to part sun and they seem to be doing a little better.

Perhaps it is a backlash against the food police harping on us about the danger of all the food that tastes so good. The new rally cry? Pork fat rules! I see folks in NY are now going after the large sizes of popcorn in movie theaters. Please tell me that's a joke.

They are called pokeweed or pokeberry. They are poisonous. I don't know how much you have to ingest, but keep the kiddos away from them.
