I got a Vitamix for Christmas and can't describe how much I love it. I use it every single day for a smoothie and often to make flours (dry container), sauces, soup, etc. It's an amazing appliance!

We have 10GB plan for 4 iphones (DH, me, DS12, and my 74 year old mom). The closest we have gotten has been around 8GB, when we were traveling and using the GPS a lot.

I bought his one when Scotch had a lightning sale on Amazon. It was about $20. Two of my friends bought one and I gave my sister (a teacher too <!--giggle-->) one for Christmas. It has worked...

I can so relate! For summer school we have to sit through a total of 4 hours of training on the "materials" they provide, which are optional to use and never change. I've sat through the same...

We had the same goal, one year's growth, and coming from someone who has worked at a 75% ESOL school for 7 years, I would be concerned with only 17% meeting the goal too, even if she did have mostly...

Almost half the teachers at my school here in Virginia are originally from PA and moved here specifically for jobs. It's a really tough job market for teachers up there.

I don't like avocados in general, however they make a delicious addition to my green smoothies. They make them nice and creamy and thick. So, depending on what else you put with the avocado in the...

I make about $50K after 7 years. I live in the DC metro area and it would be incredibly tight to live on my own with my two boys. I would definitely have to adjust our standard of living. Housing...
