    Yeah, I've used our Vietnam Veterans of America pick-up service to purge 2 houses of unwanted clothing and housewares. SO easy.

    Yeah, that's what happened to us. We thought they were bees, and they were wasps/yellow jackets. But they never bothered me or DH. And in return for the free rent we gave them, they took care of all...

    As I seem to also be growing a love for bees (and even their less friendly cousins the wasps) these days, I'm definitely going to watch. Thanks for the suggestion!

    This is not really a rave, but I'm parking it here anyway. Maybe it's a rave about feeling like I'm where I belong.

    That is such a shame about the scam. How heartless can people be??

    I enjoy watching "My Lottery Dream Home" on HGTV but IRL I don't buy lottery tickets. I'm too superstitious about them.
