On 10/18/2014 Dazlin said: I think the whole situation is scary, and very sad. I hope they stops flights to and from Liberia, and all Africa until we get a handle on this. I'm also seeing there is no complete diagnosis, and understanding about this virus, and Drs. are learning as they go. As far as ANY products coming from Africa...I highly doubt that tests were done to see what virus, or bacteria lives in a or on the surface of a product. There have been many cases of infected/bad food that have survived long transportation, and placed in supermarkets. Obviously never tested until an outbrea... Continue Reading

On 10/18/2014 NYwoman said: West Africa, mainly Nigeria, Benin, Ivory Coast, and Ghana, produce Shea products. The process of getting shea from the nut involves heating it. BTW, Black Soap is the residue of this process. Cocoa (chocolate) and palm oil are also products from these countries. They are also processed before consumption. Another resource from West Africa is crude oil, especially from Nigeria. Liberia has rubber trees. Guinea and Sierra Leone have no vast resources. NY , you said that heat is required to remove Shea oil from the nut ? I've watched a few L'Occitane shows over the ... Continue Reading

 

Re: Overload !!!

They're beautiful , but must be very expensive to decorate like that . DH caught the start of the show & said , " Who decorates like that ? " lol. The past few years I've gone to the minimalist look .....more of a wild tree out in the woods , not quite Charlie Browns tree tho , ha . I found a 6 ft slim alpine tree , with a tiny bit of flocking . I add about 50 white lights & some woodland type decorations .....little birds , pine cones , glittered snowflakes , etc. .....and we like it . Continue Reading

Ellen is a gem . I think Nancy H. , would be hilarious as well with Ellen . Nancy is so funny & always makes me laugh . Carolyn is the best host with musical guests ; she asks appropriate & interesting questions, plus she makes the guests comfortable . Watched the B. Manilow show she hosted last week , and the show was so very well done . Tonight's Ellen show was fun , but didn't need anything shown , tho they had some cute things . Will hedgehogs become popular in the US as in the UK ? Time will tell ! :) Continue Reading

 

Re: Shipping on Polar Fleece Sheets

OP , yes , I was surprised when I saw it added to the price . It added quite a bit , tho still reasonable price in the end, for the larger size I ordered . I think they could offer us better on S& H all the time. Other channels do it . It sometimes doesn't make an item a good deal & I don't buy . Continue Reading

On 10/15/2014 imaclotheshog said: They have very nice fleece sheets at Target, Kohls and JCPenney. And, no expensive S&H. Also for those who care, Malden Mills used to be made in the USA. Now it is made in China. I noticed that about a year ago . I know , it's too bad . Wonder why they decided that , after the owner made such a big personal sacrifice , when the mill burned years ago . The Q used to tell that story , when the brand was new to their product line . I'm sure it wasn't his decision , for one reason or another . All CEOs should be as good . Continue Reading

Re: Drugstore mask for cleaning pores for sensitive aging skin ?

In Beauty's Best Gifts 1413437206.547

OP , the absolutely best product I've ever tried , is Paula's Choice RESIST BHA 2% ( to start .....later try 9% only if you need to ) . It's not a mask , but meant to leave on overnight ( clear ) . I saw results after the first use . It's amazing & also non-irritating on my sensitive skin . Sorry , I never found a drugstore brand as outstanding as the PC product . All the best :) Continue Reading
