A member of the cabbage family, cauliflower is a hearty vegetable that rarely gets the spotlight. Packed with vitamin C and delicious raw or cooked, it’s time to give this versatile veggie a nod and explore the many ways in which cauliflower can be enjoyed. Most of us are familiar with white heads of cauliflower but there are also colorful varieties of cauliflower that come in greens and purples. When choosing what to put in your basket, look for heads that are uniform in color with no spots or bruises. Cauliflower will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator but for the best flavor, cook soon after buying. Now that you know what to look for, here are ten ways to cook with cauliflower! 1. Cauliflower is an ideal crudité. Its mild flavor lets you enjoy whatever dip you like and its sturdiness will never disappoint. Break a head of cauliflower into medium-sized florets and serve with your favorite creamy dressing. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] If you hired a designer for your kitchen renovation and is charged an hourly rate for the project. In the middle of the project you fired the designer for incompetence. Then she sends you a final bill that includes hours that she spent to revise her previous mistakes because she was not listening carefully to what I asked her to do. On top of that, she padded the bill as well as having super slow turn around time, so it was costing me a lot more money to get take outs every meal for the family. What would you do with the final bill? 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

She basically said she would "absolutely wow" me and that she was so excited to "do my party." The party was for about 20 kids and her bill was over $500. Cheap oriental trading crap that cost maybe $40 total, but her DH was a lawyer and my DH's friend and DH said to eat the cost and get over it. However I quietly shared with everyone else not to use her. It was seriously absurd but it was my fault because I didn't specify a price. I just thought logically what could it be, 15 a bag TOPS ? And for that I thought she'd put in some fancy stuff. Instead it was twice the price and a bunch of junk. [ Reply | More ]

Basically whoever puts a mechanic lien on your property, you can either pay or bond the disputed amount or demand a foreclosure in 30 days. If you do the last one, the person has 30 days to start a law suite against you, the bank (if you have a mortgage), the coop and everyone else that has a claim on your title that is senior to her lien, such as IRS you owe any taxes. It's a very time consuming and expensive process for the person who wants to start the law sue. The lien goes away if the law sue was not filed within 30 days. Once you go into trial, you can prove your point in court. [ Reply | More ]

no, but I see this all. the. time. you fired her for "incompetence". So either she truly is incompetent, and somehow you hired her anyway, without references or a proven portfolio--most likely because she was cheaper than anyone else, OR she is perfectly competent, you had some sort of disagreement, and you just don't want to pay. Most people in this line of work don't want to burn bridges. If they feel they were really at fault for misunderstandings or faulty work, they would cut you a break on the bill. [ Reply | More ]

I'd make a check for 80% of the final invoice with an accompanying letter that says cashing the check implies accepting the 80% amount as payment in full for the project and in the letter list all of your complaints about her work. If she cashes the check, see if she finds it worth it to her to come after you for the difference of 20%. Worth a shot to see if she'll walk away - if she really is padding the bill and running the costs up. [ Reply | More ]

Do you have a written contract? How did she log the hours worked? Did she go to your house? Work from her office/home? Do you have written proof of the hours worked? Working in design and coming out with a concept is a slippery slope, something that is beautiful to her might be ugly to you, why was she incompetent? Wasn't she working? or didn't she come out with a design you like? if the latter, you have to pay her. Maybe you are not good at communicating your wishes. [ Reply | More ]

Allen Stevenson for boys K-8. The girls schools have stronger theatre than music. HM and Riverdale are both very very strong in music and theater in HS. Dalton seems pretty good too but I am less familiar. [ Reply | More ]

^^When you are touring, ask questions about the HS because IMO the art offering tend to trickle down. Do they have an orchestra? How large? Does that orchestra tour? How about chamber music? Other performing ensembles? Private lessons at school? Who selects and produces the plays and musicals? Students or is it teacher-led? Who builds the sets? A few schools had a woodshop for set building, others hire it out. I tend to like the productions that are student produced and led, as it allows for a different kind of creative leadership opportunity and fresh vibe instead of just another drama department head re-doing Grease for the billionth time.

[ - ] I really screwed over one of my bosses once. I was unhappy with her for various reasons, and regarded her as an enemy. So I took on a bunch of extra duties, lied about the amount of progress I had made in a couple major projects, then just cleared out my desk one night while "working" late and never looked back. I guess they were pretty furious, but I had my own business going by that point, and it was no longer necessary to grovel for employment from other companies. Lesson is, be careful about being abusive toward your employees - not ALL of them are simpering doormats. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
