    I'm interested too. I have DAR on both sides of my family, mom and dad. Never did it because it seems too difficult. Looking forward to hearing if you get it done.
  2. My sugar gets hard and I have it in a bucket in mylar with a gamma lid. FYI, it is in the basement and began to smell a bit musty (maybe the wrong word, but I can't really think of a better word), but it's never affected the flavor. I think one of the kids left the lid off once. Been using it for years that way. Never had a problem.
  3. You can get whole courses on youtube. Stanford, MIT, U of CA Berkley, Harvard, those are just some of the ones I've "taken" Just search Biology 101, or History course or whatever, and you'll get it all. Usually they'll talk on the first day about their syllabus, and after listening to that, you'll get the address to their personal webpage with the written syllabus, problems, tests, along with solutions and any links they use. Most schools of any note now have opencourseware.
  4. LOL I'm addicted to Stevia. I use the English Toffee flavor liquid, or the powder in the raw... but I also grew my own and the only way I could use it was in an extract. It's not bad, and especially if you add some vanilla or other flavorings, it's divine. And I drink it in my coffee and herbal tea every day... but like I said, I use the liquid form. Maybe it's the toffee flavor or maybe it's the liquid, but I never detect an after taste. Here's some info from a stevia article... and by the way, it has medicinal properties as well. While there is no question that stevia is sweet, many
  5. I've been wanting to build one of these. Does need electricity, though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQjPSsIWDvg
  6. Definitely break it up. I've had a theft happen while traveling but luckily once they find one stash, they but out... my theory is that theives are inheritantly lazy, and they also don't expect people to have much... so if they find the cash, they think it's all there is and leave. That being said, I also was traveling recently to somewhere there were a lot of pickpockets. I was told to do one of two things... one put a mousetrap in my purse LOL and the second it a wallet full of play money and fake credit cards like you get in the mail. I didn't have to, I have other methods... but maybe a d
  7. AWWWW thanks It's good to be back - missed you guys and thought of this place often :)
  8. btw if anyone ever needs help budgeting, I'm more than happy to volunteer some time for you. It's a true passion for me to help people get control of their finances.
  9. Sounds like you have a budget, but have you done a post mortem for the past few months? In other words, looked back and categorized your spending? Doesn't help at all to have a budget if you don't know what you've been spending your money on. I'm an accountant and I do budgets for people all the time to help them get out of debt (reminder to self, take own advice lol) I'd recommend making a spreadsheet - on paper or the computer, doesn't have to be very elaborate, only as much as you want. Make categories on what you want to spend money on, and then put your week or month's worth of spending
  10. Saw a youtube video - person tried various ways to preserve avocado. In water, lemon juice, airtight, and with an onion. Believe it or not, the onion did the trick. Now I store my cut avocados in the fridge with a half onion in the bag and believe it or not, I get about a week before I have to eat it. (not that an avo would last that long for me, but one time did when I had forgotten it )
  11. I have health care through my work, which I am required to take - it didn't cover the medical care I was receiving prior to the O plan, and my previous annual physicals and labs, which have been covered FREE for the past 20 years of my working life, now cost me $800. I have over $2k in medical bills and I don't know how I will be paying them. Prior to "affordable" coverage everything I needed was covered with just a small copay... in other words, it's not just those unfortunate enough to not have "regular" healthcare through employers, EVERYONE is suffering now, workers, retirees, and unemploy
  12. How about making your own from a local dairy? If you could find it for cheap enough at a local dairy... You get about 1 1/2 lbs of butter from a gallon of cream. If you can get it cheap enough, all you need is a blender or food processor (or a jar to shake if you don't have those things, but that takes a long time)
  13. Out here in the Northeast, I frequently see hair dye in the clearance section of Walgreens and Rite Aid, sometimes supermarkets. Combined with coupons it can be very reasonable... how about ebay? Maybe you could get lucky and get a free shipping win for just a buck or two?
  14. How much? $99 for only the mother's side. I wonder how accurate it is. After all, we have mapped the genome but we have hardly mapped all known variants.
  15. I always liked art stuff, and it can be had cheaply. Drawing, water paints, and picture books of animals. Lots of good suggestions up there.
