this is a kiddie favorite. unroll the dough into triangles. then slice the triangles into three smaller long triangles. then you roll the small triangles around lil smokies or cocktail weiners and bake until brown.always a big hit.
[quote:cf2460572b="Chef Dee"][quote:cf2460572b="ribbit!"]I searched by ingredient (cranberry), then narrowed the search by catagory (pork).[url=http://www.recipezaar.com/r/ls=h/fid=1100,5210,12754,18596,19014,1101,5186,10937,11059,13836,13938,14062,14100,14239,16832,9855/title=cranberry/102/x7]Pork Recipes Which include cranberry foods [/url]You might want to take a look![/quote:cf2460572b]Wow, that is a great selection. Would you mind telling me how you found these. Sorry, you almost have to draw me a picture. How did you narrow the search, and where did you type in "Pork recipes which include cranberry foods" ?? I didn't know we could do this here.[/quote:cf2460572b]In the main search box at the top of the page, I typed "cranberry". I then used the pull down menu next to it to select "by Ingredient" (the main option that always shows is "All Recipes"). What you get is a list of possible ingredients. I then checked off all the ones I wanted, then clicked on the button at the bottom of the page that says "See All Recipes with Checked Ingredients".What you get is a list of recipes that looks like any other search. Then I used the categories listed to the left to narrow down the list to those recipes that have pork (look under "Main Ingriedient" - "Meat" - "Pork"). After that, I did choose to exclude ham by clicking on the circle w/ a slash next to "Ham". I know it may sound complicated, but once you go through it, it really is easy. This is one of the main reasons I love this site. The search features make it possible to refine your search more than any other recipe site I've seen. I hope my explanation was clear enough. If not, don't hesitate to let me know where you got hung up and I'll see if I can help!lynn
[quote:92d3e5b745="Sharon777"]I find the best way to search for an ingredient is this way:Under Search, change it from All Recipes to by ingredient by hitting the down arrow. Then in the next box type in "oreo" and and then hit search. The search will bring up many recipes for oreo as an ingredient. Such as the 260 show here:http://www.recipezaar.com/r/ls=h/fid=2829/title=Oreo+cookies[/quote:92d3e5b745]If you go "by ingredient" and the word "oreo" you get a list of recipes that totals 344......broken down into several categories:[url]http://www.recipezaar.com/search/search.zsp?area=foods&query=oreo[/url]

The rest of our family is just trying to stay low-cal, so any ideas would help. We also have a two year old so that can get difficult, but I'm tired of having to fix three separate meals EVERY night. Thanks so much! :D[/quote]Good Morning-[recipe=11135]Baked Chimichangas[/recipe] are fantastic-you can use the small flour tortillas for smaller Chimichangas and the Large ones for "Hungry Husband". These freeze well. Serve with [recipe=10614]Refried Beans[/recipe] and a batch of [recipe=10833]Traditional Mexican Rice[/recipe] using all the condiments. Portion control will help the whole family enjoy this meal.At the same time you can make up a batch of [recipe=12696]Empanadas[/recipe] and freeze them as well. That way if your having say Taco night you can thaw and reheat a few of these for your husband. I make [recipe=25156]Diana's Mexican Fila Rolls[/recipe] in the individual size, again for portion control. Keith can eat two while I just make it through one.[recipe=16624]Beef Souvlaki[/recipe] is another good recipe-you can marinate steaks as well, slice thin and make Gyros for the whole family using low fat Pitas.I have alot of menu ideas if these seem to fit your bill.Di :wink:
Pistachio CakePistachio CakeThis is what I did: I used Cookies 'n Cream Pudding with the whip topping for the middle and a white cake mix (try choc) and it came out SUPER MOIST and truly AWESOME! I crumbled and use whole Oreo's on top.. I have made it several times this year alone.amber
I thought of some more things that I have made...[u:11171b1fb0]Popcorn Hands[/u:11171b1fb0]:Using popped Kettle Corn, Plastic gloves(not the powered inside!) Candy Corns and String.Place candy corn in the tips of the gloves, fill glove with kettle corn up to the wrist area, tie with string!Another idea is to make sandwiches and cut them out into halloween shapes with cookie cutters, then the kids can eat the outsides. (that is if they will eat the crust :D )

I remember my mom making mashed sweet potatoes stuffed into orange shells. They made a really nice presentation on the table. I found this recipe here Sweet Potatoes in Orange Cups, probably not the same one as my mom used - no marshmallows, but you get the idea. Just use your favorite sweet potato recipe. My mom cut the tops of her orange halves in a zigzag design.

Thanks for your responses. I found a 4kg. case of boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a wholesale store today for 23.00. That was a pretty good deal, so I bought them.I am excited about trying the recipe, I really like the ingredients. I will post a pic here when I get it made. :D

[quote:f68c896d6f="Marg@Cayman Designs"]Lighting...whenever possible I use natural light. Usually on my dining room table which faces southeast through a big bay window. ([url=http://www.caymandesigns.com/food/club/photospot.jpg]see photo here[/url]) If the light is really bright I draw the sheers to help defuse the light. For the backgrounds I bought a bunch of 1-yard pieces of polyblend fabrics that drape really well and don't wrinkle too bad. I have found certain colors seem to show up the best and I have a tendency to use those over and over. BTW, your lighting will effect how your backgrounds look. The photos above were taken with the same background as [url=http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=147352]these[/url] but the ones above were taken as the sun was setting and the others were taken in the morning when there was bright light. A lot of it is to keep trying various locations, settings, backgrounds etc. and looking at the results and seeing how different factors give you different results.

Last year I knitted market shopping bags for everyone and filled them with packages of homemade cookies. Everyone seemed to like them. I've also made baskets and filled them with my homemade spaghetti sauce which I canned. I've also included pasta and Italian cookies in the basket.
Did you ever find the jarred shrimp cocktails you were looking for? My son use to buy them in the cold section of the grocery store now we can't find them anywhere!! They came three to a pack, we loved them.
My only advice is to as Caroline said use a sharp knife. I use and electric one. And definately do as John DOH said and take it out at 150 and let it "come up to 160". I do this with all roasted meats and it makes it moist and juicy and make carving easier.Good Luck!

Hi Ladies!e do this sort od cookie baking at the last minute for my Dad (Grandpa to all others),,,the cookies are typically shortbread, gingerspap and chocolatechip or similar..DW goes to theDollar store to buy a few "antique looking" cookie containers,and we line them with waxed paper...freeze them, stuffed with cookies, that are frozen as well, and these sem to make it "home" with Dad on a four hour flight, plus waiting times, mind you its packed in luggage, so probably still pretty hard frozen on arrival and depositing in his freezer...Its the thought that counts...I doubt that he'd ever complain about a home made cookie of any form, let alone ones that were packed to survive freezing...John
Your menu sounds awesome - it's late but I was going to suggest Haupia - It's a coconut pudding type thing. We ate it at several places while we were in Hawaii and it looks very easy to make.

I have done all the food for both of my kids' graduation parties. We had no particular theme other than graduation - school colors. I made shredded roast beef and shredded turkey for sandwiches and had those in crockpots. We had fresh fruit salad, beans, pasta vegetable salad, jello/marshmallow salad, veggies & dip, and cake, nuts, candies. Also several coolers on the deck with pop, beer(for the adults) and water.

I did !!! I held my 2nd annual Cookie decorating/Cookie Exchange party. I made 3 dozen sugar cookie cutouts for the kids to decorate and all the guests were asked to bring a homemade cookie (3 dozen approx depending on the number of people invited) and copies of the recipe to hand out! It was so much fun!I made Uncle Bill's Whipped Shortbread Cookies for the first time and they were AWESOME!
My kids always loved fresh fruits. Good old apples and oranges. Raisins were a favorite too. Sometimes I would mix equal amounts of peanut butter and raisins and fill celery sticks. Mom liked to snack on those, too! In fact, I still do!

I'm so glad it all got worked out. Sometimes these misunderstandings have a higher purpose for friends to realize just how much they really mean to each other.

I will never cruise again (went on one in 2004 - western Caribbean).....too much of the same old thing every day. The ports were great - I loved seeing each different one - the ship was a bore....after the first night or two, there was nothing new to see or do. I would much rather go someplace, stay there and have time to explore everything about it so that you're seeing and doing something different all the time. I found the service mediocre at best, the parents on the cruise just let their kids run wild and they were massively disruptive (we had our cabin moved due to noisy teenagers housed on either side of us), the food was good. There was just not enough different activities and places to go on board to really hold our interest. We cruised on Costa and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. It was a monumental waste of time and money.
Hello A la Carte;OH BOY, hope you are ready for many, many hours of work preparing the recipes so that they are written in a proper sequence of use and in a language that is understandable to everyone.Depending on the quality of the cookbook, will dictate the amount of money you will be spending.To get a publishing company to publish and print your cookbook is not easy.I published my own cookbook - From Uncle Bill's Kitchen in 1995.My cookbook is very unique as it has a Nutrient Analysis for each ingredient that is used in each recipe.This in itself, took hours, days and months of research.When all of that was done, I developed a computer program that did all the calculations to perfection.Again, this cost me much time and money.It is very satisfying to have your own cookbook, however, be prepared to spend not only a lot of time but money.I printed 10,000 copies of my cookbook and it cost me just under $90,000 Canadian Funds.Give or take a few pennies, it was $9.00 per cookbook.The color photography in itself cost me over $8,000.Now, if I did not have the Nutrient Analysis included and did not print a QUALITY cookbook, then I could have had it printed for anywhere between $2.50 and $4.00 per cookbook.I am preparing another cookbook and will print the less expensive route.I am known as a recipe developer, publisher, promoter, distributor and was given the initials of BSG by many ladies.Oh yes, BSG stands for "BIG SON-OF-A-GUN, but on the other hand, it could stand for the ordinary usual.My website is: www.unclebillskitchen.comI would be glad to provide you with any futher information if you so desire, just let me know.GOOD LUCK to you as there is a lot of satisfaction attached to having your own cookbook, however, VERY EXPENSIVE."Uncle Bill"
[quote:face4f2452="Kater"]Awww, Dee...you ARE a good Mom!! The fact that you care about how your kids turn out, and are willing to make it harder on yourself to ensure that, confirms the fact that you are doing a great job. Good parents aren't selfish, lazy, uninvolved, unconcerned, or necessarily "friends" with their kids (not until they reach adulthood). It isn't a popularity contest, afterall, and sometimes you've got to be the bad guy. We all make mistakes as parents, as HUMANS, so you're not alone. Afterall, kids don't come with an instruction manual! :)You might remind your kids of the old saying "If Mama ain't happy, ain't NOBODY happy."

It looks like someone just stood at the door and threw everthing in during the holiday rush. :oops: I have 2 big stacking bins in there for sugar and flour. I took the flour bin off and I noticed it sure didn't look like sugar in the other bin. Turns out I had taken the bin upstairs and emptied it into the canister. When it went back downstairs empty, I guess I thought I would throw all the ingredients in there to keep them fresh. So the lost is found, but too late. I can't imagine any event coming up that I would need fudge for. Wait a min, Valentine's Day. I could put it in little pink paper cups and gift it as gifts to my friends. In the meantime, the ingredients are safely tucked away in the freezer. I think. :?[/quote:b2932e8053]Actually, using it for Valentine's Day is a great idea! I didn't get to make the fudge wreath this year (plus, I was afraid to given the inordinate amount of chocolate I already had in the house), so I might do that, too. Don't feel bad -- I've put my keys in the refrigerator before and spent half a day looking for them.
[quote:60941fbb93="Terri R"]When my family gets together we do a potluck type of dinner and we are all required to bring a non-alcoholic beverage AND a dessert. We put all of the desserts out on the table at once. Believe me, there are over 30 of us, if your dessert is good it will be eaten. I don't understand why people do one dessert at a time. Is it just me?? :? :D[/quote:60941fbb93]OMG I wouldn't eat any dinner. You would find me at the dessert table. LOL[/quote]Oh no, the desserts don't come out until everyone has eaten and the dishes are done. :D
Looks familiar--could it be a copy? Artists from the right time period who painted that type of dog include:Lely, Stubbs, Titian, Gainsborough, Manet, Van Dyck, Landseer, Reynolds, Romney and Sargent.It reminded me of Gainsborough, but I looked around a bit and came up with nothing. Someone with a lot of time on their hands could maybe come up with something... she looks like she has a sword at her side.
I have had several occasions where I was looking for a recipe within my Main Cookbook (which is quite large :oops: ) and I knew it was in there. I used the menu at the left of the page to narrow things down, yet the one I was looking for wasn't there. I knew it was, for example, a pork roast recipe, but when I asked for main dishes using pork it didn't show. I had to fool around a bit until I hit on something that brought it up, like a key word in the recipe title. If I could have asked for "pork" or "pork roast" in a "search by ingredient" search, then it would have come up regardless of what the author of the recipe had taken the time to click off when they posted it. I continue to chip away at organizing my recipes into my specialized cookbooks, but it takes time and patience, and sometimes things really belong more than one place. That can be done, but you have to go through recipe and decide where you want it. I find I keep referring only to my Main Cookbook and search there to find anything I might be looking for that I thought looked good. I also keep a copy of everything there even though I may have also placed it into a specialized cookbook, just because I tend to do my searching there. Still hoping an Elf might pop in with an opinion or advise on all this. Steph

I'm gonna do this same thing, since I live by myself, but have things I'd like done.When dad was dieing, our neighbor (who owned the funeral home) told me to do the same. Dad was "newsworthy", so I had to gather dates and stuff for when the newspapers called. I got together a list of pallbearers, clothes, stuff. It totally creaped me out, but maybe because it was about someone else.I think making a list of people (addys) I want my brother to write and say "she's dust now"; books and junk I want sent to "whoever"; things that are important to only me. I have some dustcatchers that I paid a fortune for; I have some that are junk. I want my treasures to be given away, and not thrown in a box for a yard sale or trash. I have people who have done so many nice things for me, and I want them to be given something. I'd actually never thought about a folder (DUH) with all of that in it, but it's such a good idea.[/quote:082395d659]This a great idea! I know it is a hard thing to discuss and do, but it is very wise and extremely helpful to the ones left to grieve! My mom has tried to discuss some of the things they want done when they die and I have been hesitant, but lately I have begun to realize that it is just a fact of life and has to be dealt with. It would give me some peace to know that I did things as they wanted and contacted everyone they wanted me to.This also brings to mind something that I am doing now and wish I had begun earlier. [color=red:082395d659]I have started a notebook on my family's medical history. I have begun recording diagnoses. medicines, allergies, surgeries, etc on my family ie: DH, myself, Mom and Dad and brother. [/color:082395d659]Believe me, it is already extensive information! My plan is to grab it and take it with me if anyone ends up in the hospital. I have already found that trying to remember to tell doctors everything can be difficult when you are worried about a loved one. Unfortunately, it is incomplete and I could have used it already a couple of times lately with my dad.Anyway, just to hijack my own thread, I thought the notebook idea fit very well with Mary64's folder idea. I plan to implement the folder idea also (may include it with the notebook)[/quote:082395d659]I did this with Mom. We'd go to the ER at least every month, if not more. The doctors would ask questions, and thought I was a moron when I could not answer. I reminded them that with 2 hours sleep, and stress, all I could think of is "will Mom be OK this time?" I realized keeping a daily record worked best. I wrote down what she ate; every little "odd" thing that happened; every new med and it's reaction on her. The funeral thing works. Mom and Dad made prearrangements with the funeral home, down to the songs they wanted. At the time of loss, or even hospitalization, you just can't remember stuff. The notebook/folder are really good ideas.

My mom was pretty darn mean too. When I was just barely 13 she wouldn't let me go out on dates with a 19 year old "boy" in his car.

He showed him all his hunting guns. :lol:

[quote:2b3cf0bdf6="silly sally"]Is this ONLY for Americans with cancer? :cry: How/where do we "others" find out...and....is it only from treatment place to treatment place, like what would justify flying to treatment....if your own nearby hospital didn`t do certain procedures, etc?I think this is fantastic. Bless us, everyone![/quote:2b3cf0bdf6]Silly Sally, I don't know if it is available to people out of the country. Maybe Europe has a program of their own. The way it works, is that you contact the "clearing house" with the detail of where you need to go for treatment and approximately when. It must be a recognized cancer treatment facility. That does NOT mean that it can't be an "alternative therapy"........they just need to ensure that people are using them to go visit Disneyland :wink: They don't make "special trips." They find a corporate jet that will be in your area, and heading to your destination. Same thing on the return flight (it will probably be a different corporation's jet) One of the nice things about the program is that they frequently use "reliever" airports.....so someone who is ill doesn't always have to deal with the chaos of an international airport. Here in this country, people can get more info from their oncologist or support groups.Good luck! I hope that you can find a program that can help you!
we're planning a 1,000 mile move in 3 months, so i'm gambling we'll be okay waiting until then to start. but i am starting a notebook from everyone's great lists and suggestions. i also know i'll have to plan, at least somewhat, for my nearby family members who won't do it for themselves (at least the children). until then, i'm spreading the word that those of us with strengthened immune systems will be the least likely to get it, so eat those fruits, veggies, and whole grains, people! i found a product called Bromelain Sinus Ease and took it when i felt something trying to latch on and i managed to avoid a cold entirely this year. i wonder if it would also work in this situation. i know i'm using it before my next airline flight.

That is an excellent point, Bliss!! My DH and I have had to do this and it has saved my life many times. Everytime I go to any doctor, dentist, etc. I hand them a complete list of medications I take with quantities,sytrength other names for the same drug, etc. We want to guarantee that no doctor or medcial person every makes a mistake. Several times, years ago, I had several emergency room visits. They asked DH to fill out a paaper on what medicines, quantities, etc, I take. I take about 15 different medicines in different quantities. I can't even remember what all I take. If I can't remember, neither can he.When I had to have surgery at a day center the doctors promised me they would send over a list of medicines I take. Somehow, they forgot. DH carries a copy in his backpack. If he hadn't I would have had to not have surgery that day and go through the preperation for it again.If at all possible put down the other names for the same medicine. My cardiologist almost gave me a medicine that I was already taking. If a heart doctor can make a mistake, so can other doctors. If you need help coming up with the other names for the medication you, or they, take. feel free to z-mail me. I can help out.

Try this:HTML Backgrounds :BACKGROUND IMAGE--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Printed from http://www.echoecho.com/htmlbackgrounds02.htm - Copyright � 1999-2002 by NetKontoret, Copenhagen, Denmark-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you want to add a background image instead of a plain color there are some considerations you should make before doing so:Is the background image discrete enough to not take away the focus from what's written on it?Will the background image work with the text colors and link colors I set up for the page?Will the background image work with the other images I want to put on the page?How long will the page take to load my backgroundimage? Is it simply too big?Will the background image work when it is copied to fill the entire page? In all screen resolutions? After answering these questions, if you still want to add the background image you will need to specify in the
tag which image should be used for the background. Note:If the image you're using is smaller than the screen, the image will be replicated until it fills the entire screen.If, say you wanted a striped background for your page, you wouldn't have to make a huge image for it. Basically you could just make an image that is two pixels high and one pixel wide. When inserted on the page the two dots will be copied to fill the page - thus making what looks like a full screen striped image.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------When you choose to use a background image for the page it is always a good idea to specify a background color as well. The reason is that until the background image is loaded, the background color will be shown.If there is too much difference between the background color and the background image, it will look disturbing once the browser shifts from the background color to the image.Therefore it is a good idea to specify a background color that matches the colors of the image as close as possible.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------You may have noticed that background images scroll with the page when you use the scroll bar.

NAIL IN THE FENCE There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now ! pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. " A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

We were in the midst of one of those "Steel Magnolia Cemetery Moments" and it was [i:12b8ac1db4]waaaay[/i:12b8ac1db4] too intense. I remembered this joke and it made us laugh and get a bit of perspective. Very grateful.[/quote:12b8ac1db4]Just wanted to say I think Steel Magnolias is one of the best Chic flicks I've ever seen. :)[/quote:12b8ac1db4]Have you ever seen Stepmom with Julia Roberts? That is also a great Chic flick.[/quote:12b8ac1db4]Yes! How about Sleeping With The Enemy? Intense, but such a journey...
[quote:fcc85bb97a="- Kathie -"][quote:fcc85bb97a="Chef Dee"]I had my own TV talk show.In a small city where nobody watched. Except my family and closest friends. :? :D[/quote:fcc85bb97a]I would have watched! You should put it on You Tube!! I'd love to see it.[/quote:fcc85bb97a]I wonder if the station still has those old tapes ?? I will never forget one night, I thought I was going to be fired for sure. My sister wanted to see what the studio looked like, so I took her with me. Now I must interject that though we were living on our own, we were young, naive and silly. I was interviewing a man who was head of a service club, he came out in all the finery including a tall purple hat with gold tassles. My sister placed herself behind him and off to the side so I could see her and he could not.The show was live. :? so you can imagine the fiasco. She was a real practical joker and she started making gestures about his hat. I was trying not to look :shock: on the air, but I finally lost it and started laughing. This went on too long. Then when I finally composed myself and was seriously into questions again, she flashed me. That was it for me, I had tears running down my face and I could hardly breathe I was laughing so loud. Mind you, there were no breaks as it was live. I tried in vain to keep the interview going but when I tried to speak, it sounded like I was sobbing because I couldn't keep a straight face.I finally said on air that I had a visitor and she ducked out of the room fearing I would say her name. I was able to finish the show and I received a scolding from my boss, but nothing more. And I was strictly forbidden to bring visitors to the studio after that.I actually did find out that people did watch it over that night. Everyone was congratulating me, telling me they had a good belly laugh and thought I should have a comedy show instead. I am no Red Skelton !Now that you mention it, I am going to try to find that tape. If I ever do, I promise I will send it in and let you know here.

I can't get the page to load, but will try to find it elsewhere. As we are not exactly politically friends, why are we trusting them with what we put in our mouths ??The govt there doesn't care what they do to their own people, why would they care what they do to us ???
Hi Sweetie, how are you doing? And YES, I was growling at these kind of e-mails! Back in the old days this kind of thing was called "chain letter" which is what my mother told me was evil, against our religion. I hate getting these things in my e-mail box.

OH! My name was listed there for under $100.00 so I filled out the form. My ex's name was also listed for the same place. I think we had to open a savings acct when we first bought our house with the mortgage co we used. We'll see what turns up! Thanks!
I love the Definity, in fact I love all of Olay products. Having rosacea I have found they are the only products that don't cause irritation. Both sons and daughters in their 20's and late 30's use Olay too.

Hi All, Recently, I went onto Better Homes and Garden's site. They have a place for you to send the most adorable e-card. Just go to to www.bhg.com, and click on the "Holiday" tab. You'll see in the right hand corner a place to click for a "turkey" e-card. You customize the card and then call a 1-800 number and record your voice. Then when the card is send the turkey moves its mouth, and your voice comes out! I sent it to everyone I know and they just loved it! It's not too late! Try it! Terry
Maybe she does it for fun? lol When I talked to her on the phone she was so nice. I couldn't believe that she offered to send the samples and then sent them! I said oh that's OK-you don't need to send any. She insisted and I'm glad that she did! Yumm-o!!
That comedian did such a great job with the delivery, I laughed harder then usual. Definitely the best version I have heard! Waaaay better then my Dad's version..... I have emailed it to him!Thanks for the morning smile!

Oh winkki, I'm so sorry to hear about your DH... and I'll keep him in my prayers for a full recovery. As for bill paying, well... I usually pay them as they come in. Everything goes in a wire holder in the order it comes in... and once a week I sit down and pay them. Then I start over. Probably not the best system for some folks. :wink:
I believe he catered Troy's wedding, and I was told that Troy was begging for his recipe for something (cupcakes?), so apparently the man was a good cook/chef. I can't say first hand, but he sure does have a lot of very good reviews, so "mean" might mean just that.

Please take a moment to hear my opinion:You and your family should come first. You are obviously a very sympathetic and caring person. I am not sure what you are doing, but why not volunteer to visit when you can find the time?? Would that work? & also, there are many other ways you can help (e. g. charities). You should also consider what your family wants for you. Like I said, its your decision, but that's just my opinion.Edited to say: & you may also want to talk to someone, sometimes it helps just to talk, even talk to the people you arer helping! It would help you.((((((((((((((((((((((((((((Dee)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) :D 8)[/quote:a9ce2a543f]wow Chef Kyle, these sound like very wise words from a 13 YO boy![/quote:a9ce2a543f]Thanks 8) I am really no great counselor or anything :lol: I can just tell how people feel and think about what I would do :D[/quote:a9ce2a543f]Just like a magician has many costumes (or is it hats?), you're a young boy with many styles of writing![/quote:a9ce2a543f] well thanks :) 8)
[quote:4a31f03b1d="Nana Lee"]I have to say I depend on CC for info, being in touch with people, comedy, and company.I don't always have somewhere to go or something to do, so I depend on you 'Zaarites to keep me company and up-to-date on what's happening.I guess, even at my age, I'm a bit naive.
