About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

Best treatment for split nails?

I'm not talking about having a great manicure - i'm talking about nails that are splitting to the quick! I have trouble picking up small items like pins and needles.

Do any of the states requiring or planning to require transvaginal ultrasound offer

free pre-natal care?

Anyone have any feel for what services will be affected if the sequester goes through?

I'm specifically wondering about immigration, customs and domestic air travel. My husband is headed home from a long trip overseas and I'm wondering if he should expect problems.

From YOUR GOVERNMENT: Help stop the student debt domino effect


What's the best yarn for a baby afghan - something that is washable, durable but

will stay soft and silky?

MSNBC, GE and Phil Donohue -

At the time, Phil Donohue wasn't on my radar, so the information that he was MSNBC's # 1 host and was fired for opposing the invasion of Iraq is news to me.

If he was fired because the parent company, GE supported the war due to defense contracts, were any laws or regulations violated? Would this be protected as corporate free speech? Is GE/MSNBC more or less guilty than Fox?

Downton Abbey - SPOILER ALERT!

It's been revealed that Josh Whedon has been secretly working as a script consultant!

What changes in attire would keep wrestling in the Olympics?

Too easy?

My DIL just saw a deer with a fawn outside her house near

Buffalo, NY. I'm not sure how large the fawn was, but isn't this the wrong time of year to be seeing fawns? I would think last year's fawns are grown, and this year's aren't due until April?

About Lew and his $56,000 Cayman Island investment -

Do we want someone who invests $56,000 without knowing where it is going handling our money? Either he is very stupid, very trusting or has waaaaay too much money.

On a more serious note, I wish he'd had the guts to say something like this:

"Of course I invested in the Caymen Islands! Given our current tax code, that's the most prudent thing to do!"

With regards to his bonus while the bank was falling down around him:

"Of course I took the money! I was a banker, not a hermit! "
