I have been making my own yogurt for awhile now. I used the tips in a NYT article about yogurt making. I heat the yogurt until 190 degrees and let it cool to 120. I haven't worried about the starter yogurt (either left over from the last batch or plain yogurt from the store) warming up first and haven't had any problems. Also, I have just put the jars in the oven with the oven light on which provides just a little heat. I am quite certain it isn't 100 degrees in the oven. I make the yogurt at night and let it sit until I get up (normally done making it around 10:00 and take it out around 6:30). Initially, I would get up and take it out earlier and then I realized it didn't seem to make a difference. This method works great for me.

mh330, you are right. It does seem to be the same cabinet. I think it looks like a nice product, but I don't like being lied to (i.e. "I got it at our office exchange."). If you want to push your own products, just tell us that is what you are doing.

I love the paintings by LNZart for a kids room. Although I am not sure what happened (maybe she sold out?), she used to have a lot more posted on her site. It looks like she only has two paintings right now.

I love the Diva Cup! I too was a little squeamish and had a little trouble the first month, but I would never look back now. Love, love, love it. It probably sounds silly, but I feel like I took control of my body. I am no longer putting something in that is harmful to me. I am no longer polluting. Now that I can insert the Diva Cup correctly, I find it way less annoying than tampons. And, big bonus as an outdoors enthusiast, I could wear it all day without having to change it.

I don't know what your windows are like in your apt., but perhaps you could buy come cafe curtains or top down/bottom up shades to block the view from below but allow you to still get light.

Based on your website it looks like you may be in Canada. If you were local (Chicago) I would be willing to offer $150. Although, considering what others are saying it is worth, that is probably too low.
