Huge huge crowds. You have to line up in a pen, then you line up in another pen, then you get to stand in a tightly packed room and move around the exhibit extremely slowly because you're pressed up against people the whole time. It's like being on a rush hour subway. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Here's the thing about people who want to vote for people to lower their taxes - there are lots of other places that they could live that already have low tax burdens or lax tax enforcement. India, South America, all of the African countries, even Indonesia charge less in taxes than the United States. But these people don't want to live in those shitholes. They want to live in a country where they know that their food is safe and that their office building isn't going to collapse around them or light on fire, where they can have a house that doesn't require a fortified wall all around it, and where their kids can go to good schools that have globally low levels of corruption and they can get helped at the hospital without having to walk in with a bag of cash. They want all the benefits of living in a first world superpower, they just don't want to pay for them. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It used to be so much better. I used to browse. There is something about this dynamic display that flips from two items to three across randomly so you lose your place and all the sponsored products that makes it really hard to find what you want unless you know the exact name. Also, the fakes are a problem so I can't order everything i used to. Still Walmart has an annoying shopping site too, so what else can you do? I am not on it too much now though I still order things when the price is cheaper. So many fake reviews too. [ Reply | More ]

I used it a lot but have mostly sworn off it. I use it if I need some specialty bulbs that I can’t find elsewhere etc. I never use it for toys, clothes sports items. They’re often fake and I have found other, cheaper sources for most items. Toys I buy at Target, sports equipment in specialty stores (often similar price but you get a lot of know how from the shop assistants). So, I went from ordering twice a week to ordering once a month or less. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My husband does EXATLY what John Gottman says is destructive to a marriage -- “There’s a habit of mind that the masters have,” Gottman explained in an interview, “which is this: they are scanning social environment for things they can appreciate and say thank you for. They are building this culture of respect and appreciation very purposefully. Disasters are scanning the social environment for partners’ mistakes.” My husband does the latter, what "disasters" do. Thing is, he's not a cruel guy. He's a worrier, so always looking at what can go wrong. Anyone have experience with this type of thing improving? It is so toxic to our relationship. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Some start as low as $12/hr but usually $15. A full week would bring anything from $600 to $1,000, depending on the hours. Our (great) nanny has longer-than-usual hours sometimes but we guarantee her a $800 minimum, even when we are away or don't need all the days/hours. We let her eat whatever she wants - it's probably cheaper like this, plus she is part of the family and it pays to make her feel this way. She is humble and has a great attitude/work ethics, so we compensate and show appreciation accordingly. If somebody had entitled attitude, it wouldn't work for us. [ Reply | More ]

Crucial not to nickel and dime. If you set an hourly or weekly rate (generally $15-$22/hour), pay for the standard number of hours, whether or not you have needed all of those hours that week. This is her full time job. Just because your mother is in town and wants to be with your child, it doesn't mean she doesn't need to be paid. [ Reply | More ]

never heard about $22/hr - there is no need to pay anything close to that as there are plenty of great nannies looking for a job who would be happy to start @ $15/hr. those who ask for more never get jobs. in any case, it's important to make sure that you have a reliable employee who feels respected and appreciated [ Reply | More ]

Really don't sweat this stuff too much. I am not the nutrition police, and he will be fine, but I would recommend at least steaming some vegetables in the microwave or giving him carrots/cucumbers so that he doesn't get picky about them as he gets older (I have a very picky dc and it is challenging. Also a normal eater. Not sure what happened with the picky one) [ Reply | More ]
