I got the welcome email, coupons, etc, but was wondering what the coupons might be they send you after, and how soon after - or if I need to update something when the baby is here.

  • Who are these kids buckling their own boosters?

    Ours are still in ones with the back. Unless its the mechanisms of our back seat belts, not giving any give, we always have to re-thread the top. Is this our car, seats - or making the kids keep their big puffy mittens on?

  • New baby - before or after Superbowl?

    Due early Feb - If you could choose, and you cared about the game. Im kind of thinking after - even though my last drinking question made me wonder/and thirsty - but Ill be nursing anyway. Husband would like before - as is scared that it could be during, and the hospital has crappy TVs.

  • At what age could your kids mix drinks?

    Just started watching MadMen - and yes - I do believe everything I see on TV - hence the premise of advertising or the show wouldn't be so popular.

  • Is MSG common in chain restaurants?

    Im pregnant, and getting really severe migraines after eating out. Its only been about once/twice a month, but starting to see a connection. Is it that common in most fried things, at chains, and not just particularly a certain cuisine, but noticing them with even a small portion with simply sharing appetizers of something fried.

  • How long is too long for chicken soaking in buttermilk?

    Yesterday morning, I put chicken in buttermilk to soak until I was going to make it for dinner (its in the fridge) and forgot about it. Would it still be safe to make today? I know some marinades break meat too far down, so wasnt sure on the buttermilk? Could cook it up now, just would rather tonight.

  • Did you know this pulse thing shows your location and age?

    Even if your main profiles are private. Just saw it this morning. Funny I was checking out "Marci Allen's" profile after her question on "privacy".

  • How long to keep a duvet around for?

    Had it about 10 years, professionally cleaned every so often, but pretty flat. Just a medium quality Bed Bath and Beyond one. Has had different covers. Been a better stickler on things like mattresses, but with the different covers, kind of neglected that maybe the duvet itself could use an upgrade - and not sure about them and dust mites either.
