    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    When I renewed mine last year, I had the same experience. I made an appointment, which was WAY ahead because they were so booked up. When I got there, the place looked empty - it's a BIG DMV - with maybe 20 people waiting. I was in and out in maybe 20 minutes and most of that was spent standing at the window filling out the forms or getting my picture taken.

    Of course, then it took TWO MONTHS for my new license to come. I knew I was going to pay somehow for NOT having to wait!

    ETA: With year-round school and schools on different "tracks," some are already back in school. My cousin's boys started their school year this week.

    I wish we had year round school. My kiddos get so bored being out that long.

    We just got out at the very end of June, so we've only been out 3 weeks. We don't start until the end of August, so I'm ignoring all the back to school stuff for now.
    Count your blessings!

    Wow! They just tell you to have a seat and hand your your driver's license about 5 minutes after your picture is taken. They also don't take appointments.

    OK, was finally able to post the laundry detergent and dishwasher soap recipes in food and lifestyle and some other cleaning products you have around the house. BIG savings, let me tell you. The stuff you buy is so expensive compared to the ingredients for making these.

    Has anyone had any experience with the Edible Arrangements that you can order and have sent to people? Those fruit things. I was thinking about sending one to my friend's husband who just had heart surgery (6 blockages and a leaky valve!!!). This man had chest pain, and vomiting, and was moving unusually slowly for abut 2-3 months before he would see a doctor!!! I think the fruit arrangement would beat flowers, anyday!

    Looking for recommendations....or not!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I got one as a surprise gift from a friend once and it was really cool! The one I got had fruit on it--strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, pineapple shaped like stars, a few chocolate dipped strawberries. I kept it whole in the refrigerator and picked fruit off it as I wanted it. Probably the most fruit I've ever eaten regularly when I wasn't on a diet. I loved it and wouldn't mind getting another one as a gift.

    The only reservation I would have about giving a fruit gift to a friend is if they're diabetic. High-sugar fruit, like the kind most often used in the arrangements, can be bad on their blood sugar levels.

    I have known two different people who received edible arrangements and shared the wealth. The fruit was delicious, especially the chocolate covered fruit
    I would take one of these over flowers any day!!

    Luckily, my friend's hubby is not diabetic! I think these 2 recommendations have made up my mind! Thanks!

    My husband is diabetic, and he is allowed fruit as part of his diet. Counting carbs is the key in diabetes, and fresh fruit has a lot less sugar in it than some other things I could name which people sometimes give us: cake, cookies, etc. And at least fruit has vitamins, etc. in it. Diabetics who are educated about their disease know when and what to do. JMHO and from experience.
