  1. I'm not sure whether to laugh or to be repulsed. :blink[1]:
  2. Beautiful photos! Looks like y'all had a great time.
  3. Wow Steezus! Those photos are amazing!!! Hopefully I can get over there in a few months to see it all myself. After I read the stuff about possibly being stuck in the dorms I did some more investigation and kinda figured I might be able to get into the unaccompanied officers' housing. I guess I've moved up in the world a little since my days as an airman-no-stripes. LOL!It's officially been 11 business days since the job announcement I've applied for closed. I haven't gotten a rejection letter or email yet ::knocking furiously on wood:: so my application package seems to have made it past the computers and should be with the hiring agency. The HR folks here say that no news is good news, so I'm just waiting now.
  4. Ok, I'm feeling kinda spoiled now since my 1.19 kg bucket of Quaker oats costs less than $2 here and ginger is a year-round commodity in the Super Wal-Mart. I actually just got some ginger the other day to try to dehydrate and make candy out of. Maybe I'll make biscuits instead.
  5. Great pics!!! I'm so anxious to get over there and see things for myself. I should hear something in the next week or two (even if it's 'leave us alone, crazy lady!'). I just read the topic having to do with base housing. I'm gonna have to find someone to bring with me if I get that job. I can't be living in a dorm again!<#EMO_DIR#>/wallbash[1].gif
  6. I just heard from my friend who had the lazer treatments in Belgium. She said they worked great and that she only needed 2 more treatments when she moved back to the States. She went recently to get another treatment, but now she's growing more hair and thinks she'll now need 3 more treatments. I just read an article about it the other day that said if ?? (volts, watts, amps, something invisible that has to do with electricity/energy) was not set properly for your hair type that you could end up with more hair than you went there with. Or it could just have no affect at all. I think I'd be pretty pissed off if I paid an outrageous price for nothing or worse growing more hair!
  7. A friend once told me a story about the first time her mother made Thanksgiving dinner. The cooking instructions said to thaw the turkey, wash it, and then some other general cooking instructions. After this poor lady thawed her bird, she put it in the sink and washed it with dishwashing liquid! LOL! Bless her heart, later in the day when the dinner guests arrived she put the roasting pan on the table and removed the lid. All that was left was a carcas. All the meat and fallen completely off the bone! She started crying and her guests started eating. They said it was some of the best turkey they'd had (certainly the tenderest!). LOL!!!
  8. Have any of you girls tried that new kind of laser hair removal? I knew a girl who tried it, but never heard the results. SUPPOSEDLY after about 5 treatments you're not supposed to grow hair there (where ever there is) again. She had it done in Belgium for about 70 Euros, but here it's about $500 for each treatment.
  9. LOL! That's great! Kids really do say the darnedest things.
  10. I wanna go there!!!! Thanks for sending such a great article.
  11. Good grief! I really wish I'd read through this topic before I dropped something in the mail for Ben last week.
  12. Wow! That's one way to do it, but I bet they don't try it that way again.
  13. All those numbers make my head hurt. LOL! I'm glad someone could explain it, even if I'm too tired to understand it.
  14. I'm sorry to laugh about your shopping snaffoo, Saffie. I only laugh because that sounds like something that would happen to me. Is there any way you can return it?
  15. ROFL! Wow! That pretty much sums up what's going on in politics these days!
