  • Cooking pot roast in high altitude?

    I am making a pot roast today. I have 2.6 lbs of beef chuck, 3 potatos, and 6 carrots in the crock pot. I used 3 cubes of beef boillon with about 3.5 cups of water. I also added some salt, pepper, dried onion soup mix, and garlic powder. I browned the chuck before putting it in the pot. This recipe usually takes about 7 hours on low heat at 2,200 ft elevation. I am at 5,000 ft elevation right now. It has been on high heat for about 4.5 hours now. Will it take longer than 7 hours here? Thanks!

  • Paranoid about food contamination?

    I went to the grocery store yesterday and while I was looking at the ground beef I noticed that the package underneath the one that I was holding was broken. I am a bit paranoid about food contamination (to say the least) so this whole situation has me worried. Once I saw that the package was broke, I decided not to buy any of the ground beef. I was not able to wash my hands at the grocery store (I only had hand sanitizer with me), though, so I am worried that the other groceries I picked up are now contaminated. I washed my hands as soon as I got home but I am now thinking that all of the groceries I bought could be contaminated with raw ground beef germs. Any thoughts?

  • Changes during period?

    Do any of you experience more abnormal changes during your period? For example, often times I experience a lack of appetite (sometimes to the point of being nauseated), bouts of fatigue with hot flashes, stomach upset, shortness of breath, racing heart and clammy palms. I feel like my entire body is more sensitive. I am already a sensitive person. I have IBS and stress and anxiety really affect me physically. I am on contraceptives and they do help. Just wondering if anybody can relate? Thank you!

  • How can I watch Sister Wives season 3/second part of season 2?

    I have been waiting for more Sister Wives episodes to come on Netflix for quite some time. Netflix only shows the first 18 episodes. Some sources say that this is the end of season 2 while others say this is only half way through season 2. Either way it is counted, I am far behind. With the new season approaching, it does not seem that Netflix will update Sister Wives anytime soon. And I cannot find the seasons at Wal-Mart, Target, or Best Buy. How do I watch this show???

  • Second middle name for Liara Elizabeth?

    My sister is having a baby girl and has decided that the first name will be Liara (Lee-are-ah). She wants the middle name to be Elizabeth. Since my sister has two middle names, she was thinking about giving Liara two middle names. What names do you think would go well with Liara Elizabeth?

    We are not interested in what you think of the first name. Everybody is dead set on her first name being Liara. We only want to know what name would be a good second middle name for her.

  • How would you plan this trip?

    My husband and I have to drive from Colorado Springs, Colorado to Asheville, North Carolina. We want to do it comfortably and quickly. The trip is about 1,420 miles. It should be about 24 hours of driving time. We do not want to drive the entire thing straight. How should we split this up? My husband thinks we should drive 18 hours one day and 6 hours the next. I want to drive 12 hours each day. When I make the trip by myself, I split it up into 3 days with 8 hours each.

    How would you do it?

  • How can I encourage my husband to shower more?

    My husband only showers about once a week (if that...) and he is a very active man. He is in the army so he does PT every morning. He also spends a lot of time at the outdoor shooting range so he gets pretty dirty from that.. Don't get me wrong, I love him to death, but his body odor is seriously turning me away. It isn't just the odor, though. He has pimples and blackheads all over his back because of his poor hygiene. He also has pimples on his face and blackheads all over his nose. I understand that people get pimples and blackheads are very common on your nose (I have them on mine) but these are very bad. They even smell! When he takes his shirt off for bed, a wave of body odor spread out from him. He always wants me to scratch his back, too, and I just can not handle the smell. It makes me want to gag.

    This issue has made me very reluctant to get close to him. I find that I've been washing our sheets more often (probably twice a week) because a ton of dead skin falls off of him at night. It's disgusting. He has recently noticed that I haven't wanted to be as physically close and he thinks it is because I don't feel the same about him but the truth is that his hygiene grosses me out.

    I've tried to talk to him about it but he doesn't seem to listen. He says that it is very unhealthy to shower everyday. I don't believe this but I'm not asking him to shower every day. I just want him to shower every 48 hours. He also says that showering dries out his skin and lotion is bad for your skin. I've suggested that he needs to see a dermatologist but he just avoids it. He always mentions that showering and using soaps is unnatural. I even bought some organic, natural soap and he won't use it.

    Every time I bring it up I end up getting angry because it just seems that he is using BS excuses. I don't know how to get my point across in a nice, yet serious, way. It seems that whenever I bring it up he just ignores me, too. I've even tried showing him medical articles describing how often one should shower.

    Nothing seems to work.

  • Vampire Diaries Coincidence?

    I have recently started watching the Vampire Diaries and some things seem too coincidental. How is it possible that Katherine's decedents end up in the same town she visited in 1864? Were Katherine's decendents in Mystic Falls when she visited Damon and Stefan? Did she influence them to move there?

    It was my understanding that Katherine's child was raised and lived in Bulgaria. Therefore, wouldn't all of her decendents be in Bulgaria? I know that Isobel lived in a town close to Mystic Falls. It just seems too coincidental that Elena would be born in the town that Katherine previously visited.

    Any thoughts?

  • Am I getting ripped off?

    I just recently took a babysitting job that requires me to pick up a 9 year old from school and watch him for a couple hours until his parents get home. His parents are friends of my husband and I. I'll be watching the kid for about 10-15 hours a week. He's an extremely well behaved kid. I just have to pick him up, make him a snack, tell him to do his homework, and then let him play. I can even do my homework while watching him. I'm only getting paid 50 dollars a week, though. I haven't had any sort of job in so long that I was so eager to take it but now I'm thinking that I won't get paid enough. It averages out to be 2.50 dollars an hour. Does this seem ridiculously low?

  • My Angelfish spits up everything he eats?

    We have a young Angelfish in a 12 gallon tank with a couple Goldfish. Yes, I know they aren't supposed to be together but my husband got the Goldfish for free and he didn't know they wouldn't match up properly. They have been doing fine for the last 3 weeks but recently the Angelfish has been spitting up everything it eats. He isn't wounded and swims around just fine. The tank is a little dirty right now, Could it be because of the algae? Could it be the flakes? Should I add stresscoat?

    Thanks.

  • Baby boy names starting with K?

    We're looking for some boy names that start with K. It's kind of a family tradition to have a son with the first name beginning with K. There are a lot of "Keith"s in the family already so we might save that for a middle name later on down the road. But in the mean time any ideas of trendy and traditional K names are a great help. Thank you :)

  • Arguing about living situation?

    My fiance and I are moving to Colorado in about a month and originally we were looking at a one bedroom apt to live in. I really love this apt. This is the first time we'll be living together so I'm looking forward to having our own space and kind of being able to let our love grown through our new home. But a couple days ago, my fiance's friend came to him and told him that he's been having some financial issues and offered to get a 2 bedroom apartment with us to save money. Now my fiance is hung up on living this his friend, too. He's been looking at houses for rent that have garages and claims that he needs a garage to keep his tools in. I just feel like that's silly because I'm not asking for a sun room or an art room; just the necessities. And I really don't want to live with my fiance's friend.. he's basically a stranger to me and the idea makes me uncomfortable. And I'm kind of insulted that he doesn't want to just have our own place that we can grow in and make home. Advice?
