I tried it and did not have the same success. You could try it. The sad truth is that the stains may be there for such a long time, plus you don't know what type of stains they are, so may-be no matter what you do, they will reappear. Here is something you could try...I read this somewhere....pour baking soda on the stain, cover the baking soda with vinegar, leave it alone (cover it with a paper towel). The next day, or several hours later, see if the stain comes up, either by blotting or may-be you will have to use a brush. Worth a try. I think I would first try the Spot Shot though. My friend said she dropped mascara on her carpet and nothing else worked, but Spot Shot did the trick. Good Luck. Petite Syrah

She opens the door to find her next door neighbor Bob standing on the doorstep. Bob wolf whistles and says 'I'll give you £200 if you drop the towel'. The woman doesn't want to miss out on £200, so she drops the towel. Bob takes a good look at the naked woman then says his goodbyes and leaves. As the woman closes the door her husband comes down stairs. 'Who was that?' He asks. 'It was Bob' She says. 'Oh right, did he give you that £200 that he owes me?' Hi Jaylow: Welcome to our site. Happy to have you here. Loved your joke..very cute.Looking forward to more of your posts. Petite Syrah (My name is Gail)

  6. Originally Posted by Amethyst Thanks for all your advice. As a matter of fact, I did keep track of all her calls.

I am sorry things are not working out. I do hope you find something that is more suitable and you will be happy. It is terrible to have to go to a job that you hate. It is unfortunite that people have to spoil things and I hope this woman gets hers one of these days. Don't be surprised if they catch on to her crap one day. In the meantime, you have to think of yourself and what will make you happy. May-be this is actually a blessing in disguise and you will land a terrific position with more money. Good luck. Let us know. Petite Syrah (Gail)

Quite an achievement...good for you!. Petite Syrah (Gail)

  10. [qu ote=Cirean]:icon_love Apple Crisp is my favorite dessert:icon_love Hi: I like apple crisp too, expecially this time of year. I think you might like this one because it has crumbs on the top AND the bottom. Actually, I added one or two more apples for good measure. My hubby ate the whole pan of it l ast nite and I made another one today. I may have to hid it from him! Let me know if you try it. Petite Syrah (Gail)
  11. Here is a very good version of apple crisp. Very good served warm with vanilla ice cream...but good plain also. Recipe says to bake it in 9 X 13 pan, however, I make it in an 8 X 8 pan because I like it thicker. 8 servings (but not in this house). 1 cup all purpose flour 4 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples 1/2 cup white sugar 3/4 cup rolled oats 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup water 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup butter, melted 1/ preheat oven to 350 (175 degrees C) 2/ in a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir until crumbly. Press half the oat mixture into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Cover with sliced apples. 3/ In a medium saucepan, combine white sugar, cornstarch, water and vanilla. Cook, stirring, until thick and clear, about 10 minutes. Pour over apples. Cover apples with remaining crumble mixture. 4/ Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes, until bubbly and golden.
  12. Some great sounding recipes you are posting here. Cooks Illustrated is very good. Are you a member of the web site? There is a charge, but you do have access to thousands of recipes and tips. I especially like their testings of various products and tell us which is better. I also like their magazine, which is terrific because they do not accept ads. I can't stand it when you pay good money for a mag and half of it is pages of ads. I used to subscribe to Bon Appetit and Gourmet, but gave them both up for that reason...too many ads. I hate Cooking Light Mag for the same reason. The honey nut chicken recipe you posted is very good. I made it awhile back, got recipe from Rachel Ray. Petite Syrah
  13. Let me say I would like to change my sheets every week, but truth is, I don't always do it. We have a dog and a cat and sometimes the dog jumps on the bed. Believe it or not, I actually vacuum the sheets before I wash them because of the dog hair. This is a pain in the neck to do. I agree that high thread count is worth the extra money. Has anyone boughten sheets from QVC or HSN? I bought sheets from HSN that were actually either 600 or 800 thread count. I have also gotten sheets from QVC that I believe are either 300 or 350 thread count. They were reasonably priced too. Petite Syrah

The minute her boss is out of sight, she's on the phone talking personal crap or goes out shopping for an extended lunch hour. Then when her boss is around, all you hear her do is sigh and moan about how busy she is, how much work he gives her, how he can't wipe his butt without her and on and on and on. Meanwhile - not to sound like I'm bragging - but I've worked for a demanding CEO before...and I still got the work done all before 5 and by the deadline. You gotta pick the right time to slack and the time to get busy. So right now, I'm the one slacking...cuz I'm so pissed !! Start keeping a record of her goofing off. In other words, when she is on the phone, pay attention and write down the time she got on and got off. Keep a record of how often she complains and how often her work is delagated because of it. Be specific in your record keeping and don't tell anyone in the office you are doing this...AND I MEAN NO ONE. Hide your notes or take them home with you. After you capture specific times and dates of her screwing around, then consider discussing the situation with other workers and if they agree,go all together to the superiors and now bring your notes. The other thing you can do is wait til you get your next review and bring this up to your boss. The third thing you can do is schedule a meeting with your boss and ask for a raise. You will confidently tell him that you are an asset since you do your own work and her's as well. Bring your notes into the meeting to show how often you get stuck with her work and you have always come through. You can also suggest to her that since her workload seems to be so overwhelming, perhaps she should speak to her boss about hiring another staff member. Good luck Petite Syrah
