That was an incredible article. I never felt like I lost myself when I had my child (who is an adult now), I felt more like I was experiencing a different side of life. I can understand someone who doesn't want a child would feel trapped if they had a child.
Very sad.
I can understand people feeling like that. But in no way Can I understand anyone just dropping off a kid old enough to know what's going on. That's just cold blooded. Government needs to hire those people as covert assasins.

Thanks! I feel a thousand times better.
If it wasn't for college football, I'd have no idea what day it is. Election day feels like it was weeks ago. Halloween feels like it was last summer.
;)
Shout out to my friend L who was so helpful to me in the apartment hunt and in making the final decision!
Great that the decision has been made. You must feel more control now that you know where you're going to live.

Don't get me wrong. It's not a puppy. My god it's a human they're dumping them off. Their own child at that! Glad they fixed the age thing. Those kids won't ever be right. Talk about abandonment issues...

<quoted text>I start with teh Pillsbury Cranberry quick bread mix. I add extra cranberries. Because I make the mini muffins,run them through the food processor a bit first. I substitute OJ for part of the liquid. I grate fresh orange rind into the batter- that gives an intense orange flavor without adding sweetness. Nuts are optional, but if I use them, I toast them briefly in a dry frying pan before putting them in the batter. I add a touch of cinnamon. If we have any orange liqueur in teh house, I may sub some of that for the liquid but that is not teh usual way I do it.
I can't remember if I shared the spread. The grocery sometimes has a sweet cinnamon butter spread. that is very good. Other wise I mix softened butter with lingonberry jam to serve with them. You could use red currant jam if lingonberry is not available. It is the tartness which is important
That sounds awesome.

sounds good... i'll look for pillbury recipe then... i usually take stuff like this to work, so i don't know how adding a spread may work, could be too messy to have "just 'cause"...
I have used an old cream cheese tub to transport the spread.
When you grate teh orange peel,be careful not to get the white underpart. The white pith is bitter. You just want the orange surface peel

Not sure, but possibly going to a restore point.

Thanks. Tried that. Didn't work. Saved everything important to a flash drive. Guess I'm gonna reformat it. I don't mind reformatting too much except for re-doing all my settings. It's kinda time consuming. <sigh>

We have friends our age (mid-30s) who had an unplanned baby earlier this year. It was fascinating sitting down with them and seeing them interact with their baby. They freaked out at first, after finding out they were pregnant, but embraced the hell out of it.

Granted money is tighter than it was before, but poverty isn't an issue.

i would not have put one OS on top of another to begin with, so there would be no question about rolling back to the previous. if i am installing windows, i always format the drive first, so i got nothing to offer on rolling back from 8 to 7.
