You know you’re a grown-up when your Christmas wish is a new vacuum cleaner.
That sucks. - bentley
Dyson or Shark? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Roomba! - Steven Perez
I am so in the market. I want a Roomba AND a Dyson. Is a Dyson really that great, though? Would love other opinions. I have a lot of carpet in my new house. - Laura Norvig
I have a Miele that I love. LOVE! Her name is Mona. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
^We absolutely love our Miele too. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
So Laura we have a Dyson it works just fine but is no better then any of our previous vacuums. Consumer Reports rates bagged vacuums in this order: Kenmore Elite, Miele Twist, Miele Cat/Dog, Kenmore 31140, Kenmore Progressive, Hoover WindTunnel (with the last three being best buys and the first three being great but expensive). For bagless it is: Hoover Windtunnel T Series, Eureka Airspeed, Eureka airspeed Gold, Dyson Animal, Shark Rotator (with the first two marked as best buys). - Steve C Team Marina
For Roombas I'm eyeing one but they now have approximately half a billion models out. The best reviewed one is Roomba 880 for Pets it is a change in brushes from all the other models so it doesn't get jammed up but is too expensive right now. Ten more model releases and its price will drop. And as the cleaner in the house I know too much and apologize for hijacking Jandy's post. :) - Steve C Team Marina
My god a Roomba would change my life lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I owned a Roomba several years ago and found it wasn't as much a timesaver as I thought because the brush gets filled with hair VERY quickly, requiring you to take it out and cut or pull the hair off of it. Probably not a problem for people with crewcuts but it got old quickly for me. - Spidra Webster
Steve, does that Consumer Reports have ratings for handheld ones? I really need something like a Dustbuster. - Spidra Webster
Oh hey it does in another article. Hand held are in this order: Shark Pet Perfect, Eureka Easy Clean, Bissell Pet Hair Eraser, Dirt Devil classic. Stick vacuums: Dyson Animal, Dyson motorhead, Shark Rocket, Hoover Platinum, Shark Navigator, Dirt Devil Accucharge, Bissell Featherweight. - Steve C Team Marina
If you want a cheaper Roomba, they always have refurbs showing up on Woot. - Eric - Regulate
Thanks, Steve! - Spidra Webster
You have no idea how excited I got over our new vacuum. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also I had a Hoover Wind tunnel and it sucked. It died after a month. Never again. I have to say I have really loved my dirt devil. I wanna try a Miele next. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
My dad has sent me the Consumer Reports info as well, but I haven't taken time to look it over. Thanks for the personal reactions to your vacuums, guys. :) - Jandy
We still have a Riccar that works well. The repairman liked these and uses something similar himself. He said there's Panasonic branded ones that are basically the same inside. Looking at the bag, there are several brands that use the same upright. http://www.amazon.com/Panason.... Actually wrong bag but you get the point. We... more... - Rodfather from Android
I'm quite happy with our Eureka Airspeed--not too heavy and does a fine job with cat hair (and has good suction on tools). - Walt Crawford
I have a Dyson, and it's pretty great. We looked at the Kenmore bagless at the same time; even though they were a lot cheaper to buy, there was a lot of maintenance cost down-the-line that you don't have with the Dyson (all of the filters in the Dyson are permanent; the ones in the Kenmore are supposed to be replaced regularly, etc.). The Dyson is a lot of money (though there are some pretty great sales on them this time of year), but I honestly believe it was worth it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Pack your bags, we're going on a guilt trip.
Um... shotgun? - Julian
I'll just take a plane and meet you at the end. - Eric - Regulate
I have some ENORMOUS baggage. - Stephen Mack
Are we charged per bag or by weight? Carry ons free? - Steve C Team Marina
i have my own private container ship. fleet. a fsckin' fleet of them. i'm the Admiral. - Big Joe Silence
All bags fly free! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I don't feel guilt. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
took my trip,yesterday, but I left snacks for y'all - ~Courtney F
Did my mom just show up? - Shannon - GlassMistress
Sounds like my mother's house at the holidays. DO NOT WANT - A Gunny named Slickback

As a taxpayer I support this. - Mary Carmen from iPhone

Starmama
If we have to go to a shelter it won't be in some nice family section, Jayden will be 17 in 2 1/2 weeks so he would have to be in single men's housing and I would go to single women's housing. We probably wouldn't even be able find beds in the same shelter.
And in December or January, there may be no shelter beds for singles at all. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'd make y'all come live in our spare room before it came to that. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Thank you Mary. I love you. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
My brother & sister in law are the only other people I know with a spare room. When we were homeless they wouldn't let us stay with them, they said Jayden was too much to deal with and they needed the spare room for when her mom & brother visited. So since this crisis started I haven't even talked to them about what's going on. They can't be bothered to even check on us. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
:'( - Jenny H. from Android
Well, they suck. And I'm serious. I would not let that happen to you. If I have to drag you here I will :-) - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I really hope you don't have to go back to a shelter. I hated seeing families broken up like that when I stayed at one. It's really unfair to the kid. - Anika
I saw that happen too. If it ever actually came to that I would advocate for an exception based on his special needs status. But getting special treatment at a shelter is dangerous, too. I got targeted because as a diabetic i was allowed to keep cottage cheese in the refrigerator for between meals and those bitches would steal it or put cigarette butts in it and talked hella shit about me. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I hope it doesn't come to that but I'm so thankful wonderful people like MC and Scott have offered you an option. <3 - Tamara J. B.
Mary Carmen
So, there is not much I am eating right now as most foods make me green. Just the smell or thought of some foods make me wanna toss. Every so often I get a craving that I feel I can handle. So tonight I wanted ice cream. No idea why. But the ice cream pull was hard. So Scott offers to run out to DQ to get me some. Text me what you want he says....
Great, I say. I just texted my entire craving order to Colleen by accident. And now I can't stop laughing. - Mary Carmen
If I had any shame I'd be embarrassed by what I just asked him to bring me. - Mary Carmen
I support ice cream crowd sourcing. Just fyi. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Nobody loves you like Colleen. She understands. And is probably laughing with you. :) - Jenica from iPhone
Yvonne Renee
I'm so sad right now. It's almost 2am in NJ. I got here about 2 hours ago and I already miss my kids terribly. Also, my dear friend's daughter is sick which I feel very deeply and am helpless to do anything about it. And another thing that I can't share yet weighs on me, too. I'm hoping a good night's sleep makes me feel a tiny bit better. :-(
Sleep well, and feel better tomorrow - Eric - Regulate from iPhone
Get a good night's sleep. - Anne Bouey
Be well - WarLord
Be good to yourself. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I hope you were able to get a good night's sleep and that it was beneficial. *hugs* - vicster: hon. canadian
Hugs - Janet from FFHound!
I'm pretty certain I got almost 7 hours of sleep! Now to race around and buy last minute items I didn't want to pack. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Eh, make that 6 hours including a whole lotta restlessness. (It's a bit cold here.) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I'm sorry for the homesickness and for the undisclosed thing that's weighing on you. *hugs* - Stephen Mack
Mike Nencetti
Nearing the end, holding her hand. Love my girl.
You're a good man Mike. - Mark H

Thank you everyone. we do no know how long, she's refusing food drink and medicine. I think her body has stopped digesting food, etc. so there is no point in feeding her. we have morphine when we need it. Very fortunate she has had no seizures. - Mike Nencetti

Fortunately we have an aide who will stay with her.She coughs from the saliva in her mouth. the atrophine does not fully help this. she did get some rest last night. - Mike Nencetti

For those following this thread. it is the start of day 6 without food or water. she has to be kept very still. we stopped daily baths, as it is painful, and the rehydration is prolonging her suffering. we will need to give her morphine before we try to change her. her lungs are clear as of yesterday. We have no means to communicate with her. skin rashes are under control. We lost... more... - Mike Nencetti

I wonder if my mom will kill me for tonight's FB post????
Did you not tell her prior to posting? - Corinne L
Oh, no, she knows. She just is old-fashioned. Like you should wait three months or whatnot. - Mary Carmen
My mom was that way too. - Corinne L
It's your choice and she will just have to deal with it. Fwiw, my mom feels the same way as your mom, but I think that's primarily because of our family medical history. Or, she's just old-fashioned. Regardless, it's all up to you. - Katy S
The funny thing about waiting until 3 months. If the embryo/fetus fails to progress it is usually by 8-9 weeks. It just takes the body that extra 3-4 weeks to finally figure it out (bleeding to express the sac). Anecdotal stuff from scanning pregnant ladies for 32 years. - Janet
Not on fb... Congrats?!?!! - Christina Pikas from iPhone

Aw, are you preggy again? Yay! Congrats! Exciting! (Unless you're not and I'm totally misreading this...) - Laura Krier

One minute burpee challenge....oh how you can go fuck yourself.
I don't know what this means but I love it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Lololol it's an exercise that sucks ass. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Burpees are squat thrusts? - Janet from FFHound!
Yes they are Janet...aka hell...except you jump at the end, instead of just returning to a standing position. - Chris Topher
Burpees are kind of a combination of push-ups and squat thrusts. They seem easy at the start, but get exponentially more difficult the more you do them. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

I feel so out of it today.
Time change? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I think so. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Mary Carmen
I have many questions:
Why did Adnan lend Jay his car that day if Adnan "wouldn't kick it with him?" - Mary Carmen
Why did he leave his brand new cell phone in the car? - Mary Carmen
What happened with Jay's girlfriend, Stephanie? How did she just drop out of this story? - Mary Carmen
Is Asia full of shit? - Mary Carmen
What is the deal with the Nisha call? He claims he was in school. Jay claims, and is backed up, that he didn't talk to her. So who called her? She was a speed dial on his phone. Was there someone else in the car? Is Adnan lying? Is Jay lying? - Mary Carmen
In response to whether or not she has an answering machine, Nisha says, "not this phone." So, was there another number Adnan calling? - Mary Carmen
Mary Carmen
So first things first, did he actually commit the crime?
I think if he did not actually murder her, that he knows exactly what happened and for some reason is not coming clean about the details. The obvious other person who could be involved is Jay. He seems shady and fuck and the discrepancies in his story are troublesome. Also, the dude who found the body....not sure I'm buying his story either. So many doubts and questions. - Mary Carmen
I'm far more suspicious of Jay than of Adnan. I don't think he did it, and I think even the re-creation of events to try to mimic the timeline didn't take into account far too many factors to ring true. SO many questions! - Julie Kane from iPhone

A full week of boot camp, watching my food intake and drinking half my weight in water has resulted in a loss of 6 pounds and 6 inches off of my body. That includes 3 inches off my hips and 2.5 off my thighs. I'm a believer.
By half your weight in water, do you mean an oz of water for each pound? - Katy S
Yup. - Mary Carmen
No way!!! That's awesome!!!! You've worked so hard this week. How do you feel? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
(That sounds like enough water to drown me!!) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
That's great MC!! Are you still doing all that crazy walking you were doing right after the baby was born? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Did you go on the weekend, too? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I don't get to walk as much as I used to, but I still try to get out several times a week. I go on Saturday morning, except not this week because they were having an event. There is no session on Sunday. Rest day. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Congrats. That is a tough, tough thing to do. - Laura Krier

Recurring dreams: 1. I'm in high school and I can't remember my locker combination, and 2. I keep thinking that I have missed a ton of assignments and am failing the class.
I know that dream. - Big Joe Silence from Android
Do you have your shoes on? For some reason I'm always barefoot as I try to navigate those hallways - WarLord
I have my shoes. - Mary Carmen
Actually, that dream was my senior year. - Big Joe Silence from Android
I have those as well! Also: 3) I'm graduating from high school for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time because I kept going back to try to get better grades. I suddenly realise I'm a married mother of two hanging out with 17yo's and wearing a uniform but that's not weird. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Then there's the dream where I'm trying to text or call someone, and for some reason, I just CANNOT type in the right combination of characters/numbers. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Anxiety about the new boot camp experience and fear of failure? - Janet from FFHound!
No clue. But I have anxiety so it makes sense. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I have that dream all the time. That, and the one where I'm running away from people with guns through a factory while I'm protecting a baby. - Steven Perez

NBC Is Ready to Name Weir and Lipinski as Its Top Figure Skating Broadcast Team - NYTimes.com - http://www.nytimes.com/2014...
NBC Is Ready to Name Weir and Lipinski as Its Top Figure Skating Broadcast Team - NYTimes.com
"Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski, whose critical, entertaining and fashion-conscious figure skating analysis on NBCSN drew praise during the Winter Olympics in Sochi, have earned an expected promotion to the lead team for the sport on the NBC Sports Group. NBC will announce the change Wednesday. “Tara and Johnny are a very authentic team,” Jim Bell, the executive producer of NBC Olympics, said in a telephone interview. “They’re fun and fresh. They’re not afraid to offer strong opinions and come back and take a selfie on Instagram.” He added: “You look for their kind of chemistry. You can’t make it up.” Lipinski and Weir will be the prime-time voices of figure skating for NBC during the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, but will start in their new roles during the NBC broadcast of Skate America on Sunday. They are replacing Scott Hamilton, the 1984 Olympic men’s ice skating gold medalist, who began calling the Winter Olympics for CBS in 1992, and Sandra Bezic. Tracy Wilson, NBC’s ice dancing and scoring analyst, survived the cast changes." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Terry Gannon, who hosted the NBCSN coverage with Lipinski and Weir, will take over for Tom Hammond. Hamilton will become a special correspondent for major figure skating events, like the Winter Olympics and the United States nationals. Weir, Lipinski and Gannon were on the air from Sochi for hours at a time on NBCSN, calling every figure skating routine except for those in the new team... more... - Jessie
I missed the Olympics this year because of no TV but I remember hearing about them. Good to know I can still see them in the future. - Jessie
Weir was the best thing about the Olympics....him and his hair and outfits. - Mary Carmen

Very. It only hurts when I move ;-) - Mary Carmen from iPhone
My trainers suggest pickle juice. I forgot this and my arms are screaming. - Janet from FFHound!
I am trying the pickle juice. How much should I be drinking I wonder. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
And bananas - Yvonne Renee

Morning #1 of boot camp in the books. SHE LIVES!

Hello :) - Pete
Howdy. - Mary Carmen
Boot camp at what, 6 am?!! You're a BEAST. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yeah, it is at 6am. It's pretty great though....just when you feel like you're going to die, it's over. - Mary Carmen

Ebola situation is sorta kinda getting fucking scary.
I don't get it. Why are you scared? Of what? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Amen Mary! Stephen, it only takes one breach of protocol to harm many. - Janet from FFHound!
It's possible to be scared of something without it being a direct threat to you or your community. The idea that Ebola could devastate millions of people in West Africa so quickly is pretty frightening. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm pretty sure that ebola in the US won't spread at the same rate as in West Africa, but it was disturbing to see how quickly the whole "We're the US - we got this 100% covered" argument fell apart. - Brian Johns
On the other hand, what could possibly go wrong? We spend more money on healthcare than any other nation and that's led to a system with full coverage and perfect outcomes for all, regardless of social, racial, educational, or economic status. Right? Right??? On second thought, maybe we are boned. - Brian Johns
There is certainly a "over there" mentally going on in countries like the US and Australia. When the situation is looked at on a global scale, it's definitely a thing. Africa, Europe and Asia are all land linked. It's easy to sit here on my island and go "at least they'll catch them arriving by plane" but considering the incubation period is up to 21 days, an infected carrier could spread it to other parts of the African continent or Europe/Asia without stepping in an airport. - Johnny from iPhone
I'm scared of it now, because of the sheer idiocy of the hospital in TX. They exposed us to so much danger, they broke the seal of "American Health care will prevent Africa-like outbreaks". I'm stunned that the hospital *ignored* protocol for days (they didn't wear head protection, no goggles, no full facial protection!!!). And then the CDC, assuming they followed protocol, said the... more... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
What's scary to me is not knowing if or how many people are moving about the US unknowingly contagious. There are few places in the USA untouched by global travel, so I figured it was only a matter of time before we saw it here. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
And going off what Rudi said, the protocol breach may not be that dangerous for Ebola but if something as serious as Ebola gets that lack of seriousness applied to it, what's the strength of other protocols for less deadly but more contagious diseases. - Johnny from iPhone
I just don't understand why a travel ban is not instituted. That could alleviate some of the problems. Also, the CDC just put out a warning to NYC that they should be on the alert for Ebola since they are a common port of entry for West Africans. - Mary Carmen
Here's one argument against the travel ban: http://blogs.cdc.gov/global... - Brian Johns
I'm not really convinced by that. I think the airport screenings are bullshit. Checking for a fever is not a guarantee and people may not show signs. If what the nurses' union is stating is true, then we are not doing everything we can to prevent more cases in the US. Either way, the gov't needs to get it's shit together. - Mary Carmen
Also, the house committee hearing today was redonk. - Mary Carmen
Working in imaging, usually step two of an ER visit- I cannot begin to tell you how many times Universal Precautions failed us. People are being triaged on a fast pace and tests ordered prior to results and waiting. At least three times a week we find we had a MRSA patient and we were unaware, hence no precautions. - Janet

So Wednesday I am gonna go and give this fitness bootcamp a try. Gonna do the 28 days and if I like it and see some results I'm gonna stick with it. I am kinda excited about it. http://www.fitbodybootcamp.com/manteca...
Cool! I hope you have an awesome time :D - Jennifer Dittrich
That's awesome - Stephen Mack
Sweet. Good luck and kick ass! - Tamara J. B.
Have fun. - bentley
Neat! Kick ass! - Marie
Cool! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Enjoy! But be careful. I have a number of friends who have done Fit Body Boot Camp and quality of instruction varies greatly by location. Be your own advocate every step of the way. The trainers may not always do so on your behalf (they are driven by turning out fast results to bring in more clients, not by ensuring your health and wellness). H.I.I.T. is hard but awesome! You're gonna love it! :D - Hookuh Tinypants
It was pretty fucking awesome. I'm in. I was very relieved to see that it was not Cross Fit. - Mary Carmen
Yay! :D (And I'm glad I'm not the only person who gets all >.> at Cross Fit...) - Hookuh Tinypants
Yay! Can't wait to see how you feel at the end! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
No way, Amanda. Cross fit looks like a great way to permanently injure yourself. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
