Oh no! So sorry about the mixup, I will fix that price now. It definitely was too good to be true.

I actually make these out of wool/acrylic blend yarn and I can tell you that they work great! It keeps the condensation on the outside of the container, so it keeps the liquid in the glass cooler, and it keeps your hand from getting wet or cold. I don't use mine at home when a coaster is handy, but I sure do use it in the morning for my iced coffee on the way to work, and at lunch for my iced tea. It's an easy lightweight thing to throw in my bag, and it's nicer to the environment than using the throw away paper ones.

Oh man I feel the same way about Pelican Punch. I do remember that it had carob, but I don't really remember much about it besides that except that it was a major treat. Please post if you find out where we could get some 25 year old boxes of the stuff, or can recreate it somehow.

I actually have had the bench for a couple of years and it works great!

kudos to Paula for hanging her own wallpaper, but for goodness sakes the wonkiness is making my eyeballs bleed.

I used to work in a bar that had polished concrete bar surfaces...needless to say there were a lot of ring marks and stains on the bartop and it was my job to wax the thing with a regular old electric car buffer once a week. I think we used some sort of furniture or bees wax and just went for it. Made the thing look absolutely beautiful!

For some reason I couldn't answer the survey, but wanted to chip in that I am deathly allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. Like another commenter I carry an epi-pen and benedryl with me always.
I wanted to share with all of you a really neat thing they are doing here in NYC called Worry Free Dinners ( www.worryfreedinners.blogspot.com ) which is a group for food allergy and celiac sufferers to dine out together at "safe" restaurants. It's really a lot of fun and it is so nice to be able to eat out once in a while and know that you aren't putting your life in danger to do so.
I'm not affiliated with them, but I think it's such a cool service I just wanted to give them a little plu-plu-plug.

not to mention any names but...

...someone needs to learn to be a little more polite when critiquing others...

...how rude!

Agree with the mildew problem in light grout, and the fact that you cannot use traditional chemical cleaners on marble might make this problem even worse...can I also point out that a couple of these might be sort of slick for a shower floor, be careful and mindful of that! I voted the little square black tiles for the dark color grout and the traction they might provide.

Rice Krispies remind me of grandma, so does cranberry juice for some reason.
Cream of wheat cooked until it is one hard lump reminds me of mom...I love it that way.
Dad always served his famous deeeep dish pizza with lots of veggies I always picked off.
Chipped ice and 7-up was a special treat I only got when sick.

I am thinking maybe a couple different flavored salts...maybe smoked in one part, and lavender in the other...
