Dec 20th 2010 1:27PM I remember the Lead Tinsel, like you said, it hung nicely, didn't blow around and slip of the branches. When it went to cellophane I stopped using it, now I use my Grandmother's old Tinsel Tree, another great relic from the 50's..
Apr 30th 2010 8:29AM I have a girlfriend who loves Louis Vuitton, every time I see her with one I can't help checking it out trying to find the appeal. They all look like they are made of a high grade plastic, and they are ugly to boot! Some thing is wrong when you have to buy ugly expensive things just so you can show you can... Is this a plea, I want to fit in, ..spend it on a shrink, better spent!

Apr 5th 2010 10:42AM I have 3 Siberian Huskies, they love to chase squirrels, and we have alot in the yard. Most of the squirrels are pretty quick on their feet, but one night one of them tried to escape the dogs by going up under the car into the engine space. The dogs were going nuts trying to get to it, first they tore off the grill, when that didn't work they tried to chew off the front fenders. They didn't get the fenders off, but all along the wheel well are hundreds of bite marks and the fenders are pulled wide in the center. It was my brother's car and I cringe everytime I see it. My brother was furious, but my husband does body work, so the dogs lived to see another day!!

Nov 13th 2007 12:40PM I am with you Susan.. I was too proud to shop these "cheap" stores. Then one day I too I had to start watching my spending so I keep tabs of what I spent at my regular grocery store and what I spent for the same exact items at Wal-mart. I don't clothing shop there because most things are not up to my standards of quality, but there are alot of items that I have seen at Target, Macy's and the like, for a LOT less. And yes, the prices have gone up at Wal-Mart, but so have they at all the other stores... Every one is under the energy crunch! I shop a lot of different stores because I am an informed shopper, keep tab of who sells the best item at the best price and then arrange my driving pattern to use the least gas. We have become a me, me ,me society, but there are alot of people out there that are struggling on a 600. a month income. But don't worry, all you loud mouths out there will be in the same exact spot some day. you Will have a change of attude!!
Sep 24th 2007 4:08PM Beware consumers, just because the label says" made in America" don't make it so. The rule, thanks to our Gov., is; if the last place an item is handled is in the us, then it can say "made in USA"
For example, most of the bathing suits we buy, not just the junk we buy at Walmart, but the main big makers that we see in Macy's, Bloomies etc. are not made in the USA. The fabric is made 3rd world then shipped to a place in Miami. It is then sent to a place in Pa. where the fabric is cut, then sent back to Miami where it is sent to Ski Lanka and other places to be assembled. Then back to Miami to be trucked back to Pa. where the tag is sewn in "Made in USA". How do I know this, can't say, but it is true!
Apr 27th 2007 9:25AM First of all the bar of soap that we are refering to is not soap. Real soap is lye and fat or oil. The "soap" we use today is a "beauty bar", all chemicals. Hair-smart is correct in what she said. Bar soap is designed to strip oil and dirt from the skin, when applied to the hair it causes damage by stripping nutrients from the cortex of the hair shaft. A good shampoo, on the other hand, is formulated to nourish the hair shaft, float and seperate the hair strands. Think of your hair shaft like a shingled roof. When you use harsh chemicals the shingles are stripped off and damage occures and you get split ends and dry hair. A person with short hair getting regular hair cuts won't notice this, but those of us with long hair will.
Mar 14th 2007 7:42PM I have been a beautition for many years and while I agree ro some extent with everyone let me give you some facts and insite in a pisitive manner. First of all, I don't think there is anything wrong with anyone doing their own hair or using otc color. The trick is in knowing how to apply it so that after the initial time you are only applying to to the new growth. The hair should be sectioned into 4 parts and starting in the front take up half in sections, apply color only to the new growth. When you dump color all over your head everytime the old hair gets darker and will get very dry. I can spot a home job right away!!!
I don't use Pantene either because of the wax, and luck for me I can buy good products like Biolage by Matrix. READ the labels!!
I think alot of salons over charge, but your operator either pays for her spot or she has to make so much for the salon first and then she gets a percent of what she brings in. When choosing a beautition look at their work not the fancy named salon. There are alot of good operators out there in not so fancy places..
