Most of the corn grown in this country isn't used for food anyway. It's used to feed animals since it's so cheap, although their digestive systems can't handle it.

The best site I've come across for packing light is onebag.com. Not only are there tips for packing (bundle, don't roll or fold your clothes) but there are arguments for why you'd only want to carry one bag on your short or extended trips. I haven't checked a bag in about 4 years but this site has encouraged me to carry just one carry-on onto a plane- and not one of those "carry-ons" that are actually too huge for the overhead compartment!

Would love to know what type of bag other light travelers use.

I agree with the other comments about it being spartan however I disagree with it being too much like a bachelor pad or that it's wasted space. What is the space being wasted on?
I think this looks wonderful and so peaceful. I for one, like this apartment dweller, like to live in rooms full of light, not stuff. :)

Be careful with the sweater brick- I bought one called the sweater stone (http://www.amazon.com/Jo-Ann-Stores-84459-Sweater-3-2e5X2-2e5-22/dp/B000WUXOT2) and was very excited about it because it was a natural alternative to a battery-using electric sweater shaver. After 30 minutes or more of trying to get the pills off of a sweater (I needed to do the entire thing), my sweater looked worse and the sweater stone had started to crumble all over the sweater and the floor. Thank goodness my sweater was black because I don't know if the stone would have stained it. At this point my sweater may be ruined. Out to get a sweater shaver to see if it can be salvaged.

I guess I never thought about the house in the Cosby Show (or from any other show), just the family. I always wanted to be a part of that family. They were always so happy and having so much fun. :)

Are they special matches? I love the simple match menorah but it's too bad it probably wouldn't burn for the recommended/required 30 minutes.

Moving across the country in three weeks (for the third time in 4 years) which will make move #19 in the last 10 years (and I'm only 27). I'm starting to think about becoming a relocation specialist!

Does anyone know who makes that couch in the picture in the lower right hand corner?!
