    Safe to be around dogs while doing Chemo?

    I think that's very smart to exercise caution but also take solace in this. My friend has been battling breast cancer for a little over a year and in this past year she had a double mastectomy, chemo, radiation, and recently reconstructive surgery. She has five dogs and has lived with them...

    Mineral make-up

    I am also a die hard Bare Escentuals fan. I've been using it for three years and I love it. It provides thorough, even coverage and definitely does not clog your pores. I have oily skin and BE definitely helps keep my face in check all day long. I converted my mom to BE, she hardly wears any...

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 vs Nikon D40

    Thank you both for your helpful replies. I decided to go with the Panasonic and purchased it this morning. I am soo excited to get it and start playing around with it. I've taken two photography classes through school but lack raw experience that will make me a better photographer. Thanks again!

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 vs Nikon D40

    I am looking to purchase either the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 or the Nikon D40 and I need some insight from the experts as to which one I should go with. I know the Panasonic is a bridge camera and the Nikon is a DSLR. From the reviews I've read most have suggested that the DSLR's are "better"...

    fish oil

    Please forgive my ignorance but why is it imperative that vitamin E is given along with fish oil? I'm not at all questioning its importance, just wondering why. Thanks!

    Scanning Old Photographs

    I came across boxes of old photographs and I would love to scan them into my laptop so I have a record of those memories should something happen to the original photos. My question is, does anyone know of any software or equipment that would make archiving these photos easier? I started to scan...

    Rant: Dog Haters!

    While I agree that the people's behavior is inexcusable, I come from a family who isn't too keen on dogs and it really is a two way street. Both parties need to be respectful of the other. What bothers me is that your fiance's sister had her six month old baby around a large dog who has bitten...

    Tips for Puppy-Sitting Neighbor's Boxer?

    I will be watching my neighbor's six year old, 75 lb boxer for a week beginning next weekend. The dog doesn't know me very well as we don't get together much and is protective of my neighbor's house and yard. Does anyone have any tips for me to help encourage a smooth week together? I'm planning...

    Vomiting with squirming worms

    Regarding the hair loss, I can't say without certainty that it is due to the worms; however, I can say that Luca was losing hair like crazy the entire time we had him and our vet seemed to think the hair loss was due to the worm infestation. There was hair all over our apartment and he had some...
