Dec 4th 2010 12:32PM Who says they are false & how do they know? Even those who endorse double-blind study results fail to appreciate that studies can be made to support whatever view you hold. Old wives tales are called that because of the wisdom of many older folks who have seen cause & effect. Sometimes their reasoning may be off, but their tales still hold water. With only a few exceptions, I agree with the tales listed here.
Aug 7th 2010 9:11PM Don't forget to keep toilet lids closed and don't let water-filled dishes/glasses stand in the sink. As much as possible, hang wet towels & bathing suits outside to dry. Don't mop floors as often in humid summer months. Open windows & run fans on those occasional dry cool days/nights, getting free dry air. Remember to close windows again before heat & humidity increase.
May 19th 2010 2:18PM Yep! In '84 My family & I swam in the Amazon not far from the city of Manaus. We were in the vicinity of the "Wedding of the Waters" the place where the murky yellow Solymos River merges with the iodine-colored Negro River. We stayed with our tour guides & had no trouble.

Co-signing for a loan means that the co-signor will PAY the loan if the person borrowing the money defaults. It is not simply a formality. It is a serious decision with heavy consequences.
BTW your anger comes pouring through between the lines:
>>hardly even babysit... favor my oldest sisters... we do not get a dime from anyone>> But you WANT that dime! Parents are not obligated to babysit, give money or do anything else we expect. They have lives of their own & may choose to spend their time & money in their own way. They may be trying to discourage dependency in their children/grandchildren. Stand on your own two feet & when your kids are grown, allow them to do the same. And please do not hand down your resentments to your kids. Learn to have an attitude of gratitude. We all as adults deserve nothing. Everything is a gift. Be thankful for life & breath & love.
Apr 15th 2010 5:21PM I would love if Americans, both women & men, would accept the beauty & inevitability of the aging process. I am an artist & there is nothing lovelier than a natural face, whatever the age. But those who think physical looks are more important than thrift & character will continue to waste money pursuing the fountain of youth... and showing how shallow you are in the process. My grandchildren marvel at my wrinkles & if they seem worried about them I assure them that "they don't hurt!" Accept the way life progresses. Be honest about your age & health. Take good care of your body & try to look your best but realize this is not all there is. Look ahead to the wonder of eternal life in heaven, where we won't grow old.
Apr 10th 2010 12:02AM Check you own attitude about sex. Perhaps you're one of the multitude of men who think sex will happen regularly, until the day you die, without making any effort to relate to & understand your wife. When you arrive at the FIRST time that you must plead or beg for sex, that is when you both need to resolve relational problems. It's not only about your own need. Your spouse has needs, too & it's up to BOTH of you to work on it. But do we work together? Sometimes. But many wait until he ignores her completely, or she refuses to have sex altogether. Then you're in trouble & it takes a huge effort to work through it. It can be done but it's more difficult then, but it's always worth it to work on the marital relationship. When going through tough times, we never know when our patience & perseverance will finally pay off. We made a vow to stay with our chosen spouse for better or worse & we should keep that promise.

Feb 15th 2009 11:31AM The best is a CENTRAL VAC! All the dusty air goes outside. No sneezing or having dust re-settle all over the place. The only downside is the fact that it removes warmed air from the home, so I try to use it on a day of the week whe the temps are moderate.
Oct 13th 2008 6:34PM Instead of paying more for airborne, I boost my intake of vitamins A,C,E, zinc & L-lysine until my cold/infection is gone. For bronchitis or chest congestion, use a heating pad on chest/neck.
(Airborne contains:Vitamins A, C and E; Riboflavin; Magnesium; Zinc; Selenium; Manganese; Sodium; Potassium; Amino Acids; An Herbal Extract Blend, which includes Echinacea, Maltodextrin and Forsythia.

Aug 14th 2008 11:08PM This is a case of theft. The 38c price was an obvious error. Did patrons inform the owner? NO! They told their unethical friends who flocked in, resulting in an even greater loss for the owner.
Shame on them!
