What is your home decorating style, and how has it changed over time? Do you have plans to redecorate?
Submitted by enSue.
My "style" lol.. My style is if I like it and I could afford it or make it.. I have it..I like for the things around me to be special for some reason that is what makes my home a haven, The model horses on a shelf in the front room have almost all been gifts or hand-me-downs from a favorite Uncle. I think I have purchased 2 or 3 for myself. And my bookshelf is packed with memorabilia things like a box that my bestfriend and I bought the same. and little gifts and toys. a delicate wood carving my Grandma brougth back from China and decided to give me when they moved to a smaller house.
I'd like to decorate my bedroom in India-inspired fabrics and the like and have it be a very clean crisp uncluttered space.. but the living room? its my room its where I like to have all the things that remind me of all the wonderful people I have in my life.
so.. I guess no, o decorating style, no museum sterile house.

If you could eat anything you wanted, and not have to worry about gaining weight/being unhealthy/inhumane, what would you totally pig out on?
Submitted by Jay.
there are a few things.. but really, I think I'd be having a lot of lasagna and garlic bread.. maybe asparagus cream soup... spinach artichoke dip...... so many wonderful things to pick from in the not good you category.. most of which I have not had for awhile....

A few weeks ago our oven broke.. It just ceased working. The problem could have been the $160 thermostat, or the $60 starter. If we put in the starter and it still didn't work we couldn't return that part for our $ back, we'd just have to spend the $160 too.
so after a few weeks of scrambling and some generous help from a friend and two Grandparents, we got a new oven. nothing expensive, but a new oven with a light and a window in the door and a warranty!!
I love that word.. Warranty....

Have you ever purchased something from an infomercial?
Submitted by Colleen.
I had to think about it, but I know I purchased sugar hair removal stuff... I would call it a huge waste of time and money, except that doesn't cover the enormous amount of pain I experienced using it. Nor does that cover the description of the hair removal cycle of a week and a half hair free and then waiting 2.5 weeks for the hair to get long enough fort he product to work. *rolls eyes* yeah.. huge waste of money.

For a little bit now I've been putting my creative energies into learning some new Polymer clay techniques, I'm in love with the mokume gane technique the way it blend colors is just really darn cool, once I have made a sheet I like I have been using that to make origami cranes, and thus far I have a small flock of them..
One of the females has two bald spots on her back, maybe from getting stuck to her shell while hatching, and sh'e a touch smaller than everyone else. She has been names Rachel, in honor of the pet house chicken that a crazy lady I worked for in Pennsylvania owned. (No chickens can't be house broken the darn bird deficated wherever she was, including sitting on the couch watching tv with you.)
This Rachel chicky will be an outside Rachel chicky. But isn't she cute.... :)
What's your suggestion for the Question of the Day?
Inspired by Princesskasren.
Do you have some everyday object you use that is very special to you?
And my answer: I have a coffee cup I use almost daily, usually for coffee but sometimes for tea, it is bigger than normal (sort of beer stein? shaped) and it has horses on it. It is special because my Dad who doesn't spend money frivolously is the person who picked it out and suggested he and my Mom buy it for me. Not for a birthday or a holiday, just because he thought I'd like it.

What's your best tax tip?
and dont let your accountant do anything that doesn't seem 100% above board like depreciate your car as a business vehicle just because you have used it for business errands once or twice. This will bite you square in the butt.
