: georgia, your av. :
I adore bags, but I'm terribly fickle. I rotate through bags a lot and get bored with one quickly, so I will not spend tons of $$$ on a bag. And I like big, bold bags, but not with a ton of bling and/or stuff hanging off them. I stick with earthy tones that go with my clothes. I just switched from a big, caramel colored leather satchel (clearance rack at Fashion Bug) to a deep red Anne Klein leather hobo-style (eight bucks at a consignment). Before that I carried a...

My children will be getting the polio as children, and if they want, can get the DTP as adults when they go to college. I did not though. It wears off in less than 10 yrs and I did not have it after the...
We had our Lenten Youth Service yesterday afternoon. All the kids get to participate in the liturgical ministries - they do the readings, the psalm, the collection, the music, the intercessory prayers, and everything. The DRE and I served Eucharist. The music was fantastic. Eight of my youth group kids sang, and one played the drums and one played guitar. Both my DDs sang. It was a lovely, sunny, warm spring day.

Do you have the classic "whoop" sound when you cough? Is the cough interrupting your sleep?

Tossing around brand names and long words isn't helpful in explaining things. Well if you don't use the proper terms nobody learns anything here, kwim? "Vaccine" and "immunoglobulin" are DIFFERENT things. And ... you responded to me.

I don't get how the vaccine is going to help her if she's already infected. Crucell/NIH has been developing an Ebola vaccine since 2005 or 2006, I think (it's been on COG's list as "In development" for quite some time now).
for you and sweet Miss M. : for the bf. She'll find her way, Vicki. Just give her some space and time to absorb the news.
