Re: Best Gray Eyeliner Pencil?

In Beauty Banter 1410916436.487

First, some info that may help...I am 47, but still have extremely oily eyelids and under eye areas. Consequently, pencil eyeliners have to be long-wearing to work for me. That being said, the Ulta Charcoal and the Revlon Colorstay are the only ones that do not run right off my eyes. I have used Palladio, but while I love the color and consistency, it is gone within a few hours.....completely gone. Beware of the Ulta sometimes, by the way. While it is my number one choice right with Colorstay, if you get an Ulta pencil that has dried out and looks powdery white at the tip, trade it in right a... Continue Reading


Re: Ban the Mom Heel!

In Fashion Talk 1410850973.947

On 9/14/2014 happy housewife said: I wear "Mom" jeans because they are way way way more flattering than muffin tops and flab hanging out the tops of the pants or skin tight stretchy fabric over the thighs and butts. Mom jeans may not be the latest style but they are way more flattering on everyone but little girls or very extremely thin women. I wore hip hugger pants when I was young and mini skirts and a lot of what designers are again pushing at us. I once heard a designer on TV say "If you were around to wear this the first time - you should not be wearing it now" Truer words have never be... Continue Reading

On 9/13/2014 Ms X said: I saw this suede slip-on on sale at Maryland Square (about $22) and thought it would be nice for the cold Northeastern winter, but my size wasn't available. They have some great sales on sneakers and a couple of pairs of suede boots that are less than half price, although the sizes are probably spotty. I like this mom heel! MsX, that shoe is adorable! Which one is it? I cannot seem to find it on the site you mentioned. Oops! Never mind...I found it, and no sizes for me either. bummer! Continue Reading


Re: Dr. Who Performed Joan's Throat Surgery is Out

In Joan Rivers 1410582117.21

To me, this all seems so simple. Joan likely died from a pulmonary embolism that chose to appear at a very bad time. The clot was likely formed during one of her many flights back and forth across the country. As far as firing doctors (or doctors stepping down) at the clinic she was in, this is easy to understand as well. People naturally want to blame someone or something when the death of a loved one occurs (and to Joan's fans, she was very beloved, regardless of true family ties). The clinic has to minimize their risk of a lawsuit and the damage to the clinic reputation from all the negati... Continue Reading


Re: Such a great tribute from Mike Rowe (remember him?!)

In Joan Rivers 1410307491.403

I got the Lutheran comment just fine. And, it was funny! Back in the day, before everything was so PC (in the phony way it all is now), The meaning Pistolino supplied is exactly correct. Mike Rowe's story is awesome! Did someone say he has a book out? Continue Reading


Re: High Cholesterol - How to eat, etc.

In Health & Fitness 1408772307.293

I "accidentally" dropped my cholesterol by 40 points in about six months. I say accidentally, because although my father and his side of the family have all either suffered or dropped dead of heart attacks before age 50 (five brothers in all and their father), and although my total cholesterol number had my doctor squawking, I did nothing to try to reduce my total cholesterol number. I believe looking at just the total cholesterol number is hooey, and the CRP, LDL number, LDL particle size and especially the triglyceride number are all far more important (all of that was fine for me). I have ... Continue Reading


Re: Ovarian Dermoid Cyst

In Health & Fitness 1408154307.2

I just read something interesting somewhere yesterday about a lady who took an enzyme called Serrapeptase (it has to be taken on an empty stomach daily) and had it dissolve her fibroids. I wonder if it would help you. I take it to reduce the scar tissue build up in my back from surgery, and it seems to be working. I have taken it since April. As a side benefit, my cholesterol has dropped 40 points since I started taking it. I am not one to make much note of a total cholesterol number, but I thought that was pretty significant since I got a lecture from the doc last year about the number, but ... Continue Reading

Forestview.....get d-mannose as well. I have not had to take an antibiotic for a bladder infection in fifteen years. Long story cut down....the bacteria that cause 90 percent of all bladder infections LOVE D-Mannose. When you ingest D-Mannose and it floats by the bacteria in the kidney, bladder and/or urethra, the little bacteria can NOT resist. They release their hold in the walls of whatever they are infecting, grab on to the D-Mannose, and are carried right out of the body. Watch what brand you get. I tried NOW's once and it doesn't work well. I always order the Solaray or Vitacost brands.... Continue Reading


Re: Got my Synvisc One injections yesterday

In Health & Fitness 1407423169.077

Thanks for posting this mmsFoxie! I love hyaluronic acid in oral form, and I have been keeping my eye on these types of shots (which use hyaluronin and NOT steroids) in case my oral use eventually does not help enough. Theoretically, you could get these shots for the rest of your life if you could afford it and the doc/insurance company approved it. Hyaluronin / hyaluronic acid in oral form is extremely beneficial for more than just joints too. I have taken it orally for over ten years, and the benefit to my hair, skin and nails has been amazing. Of course, the right dosage is important, as i... Continue Reading


Re: Getting ready to buy a IPad or a tablet. which brands do you like and which would you prefer?

In Electronics Talk 1406725431.05

I agree with what someone said earlier. I can only give you my PERSONAL feelings on this topic and they may be irrelevant for your purposes, but here goes..... I love my iPad. I love the sheer number of apps available, and I love its functionality. But, I am not an Apple fan-girl. I would never buy an Apple desktop, for example, unless I was rich and could have more than one desktop to play with (because I am a gamer, and because I like having an open system to work with and customize, ie: Windows 8.1 or Linux variations). I will say this though...my next tablet may very well be a Surface if ... Continue Reading
