She is not in the list of winners of National Merit Finalist, so her SAT is not IVY League standard.

I have a guy like this also hounding me for a lunch. Honestly, i am pretty time crunched and he is not someone who is going to ever do anything for me. Not to mention it has been over 10 years and this guy keeps trying to organize 'reunions' for the people who worked in that particular department (i left before it happened, but it was eliminated and many people including him, lost their jobs). Kind of creeps me out... [ Reply | More ]

I would cut two up and roast them in the oven with olive oil, salt and fresh parmesan cheese. The other two I would boil and then mash with butter and salt like mashed potatoes. YUM! We love cauliflower. [ Reply | More ]
