Would it be better to get one with a resevoir that holds the water? I also read that the cordless ones are too large and prevent you from turning it in your mouth and getting all the angles. Has anyone encoutered this?
    I use a cordless one and I don't need to refill the reservoir while I'm using it. Really though, it wouldn't be a big deal to refill - it takes a few seconds. You only put the nozzle in your mouth, so I don't have a problem with the size. Mine is small enough easily to fit in my medicine cabinet when it's collapsed and the nozzle is removed and my medicine cabinet is little.

    Just a note about putting anything other than water in a water pik....The instructions that came with mine explicitly say that you shouldn't ever put anything but water in it. I'm not altogether sure that doing so wouldn't invalidate the warranty.

    I buy Cacique bras. They're really the only brand that fits me (and isn't wildly expensive) because I need a large cup size, but my band size is only a 36 or 38. it's not easy to find that combination. I wait for sales - buy two get two free is pretty common - and stock up.

    Yes. It's all I'll wear.
    I was out shopping with a friend who swears by them. She's much larger busted than I am & says they're the only bra that's comfortable for her & still pretty & does what it's supposed to. She'd been recommending them to me for a while. I figured they'd never fit my smaller size & were a bit spendy. But I tried one on just for the heck of it (the smallest size they make). I was instantly amazed by the comfort, fit & support. The ones I'd been wearing didn't come close to comparing. I bought 2 & now that's all I buy. Worth every penny.

    The last 3 bras I bought were Bali and I loved everything about them, except the shoulder strap slips. It stays on my shoulder, but the adjustable part doesn't hold so it goes down a little and won't stay at the place I want. They have done it since I bought them too. I need to switch, because that is annoying.

    I bought a water flosser! I wanted one on line, but didn't have time to wait and the one I found was so cheap. We'll see if it was worth the money. It was a CVS brand and only $21.00! So far, so good!

    I'm so excited!!!!!! Tonight I'm going to the Robert Plant concert! I can hardly wait. I'm praying the storms stay away, since it's outside and there is no cover on top. It should be a fun night. I wasn't able to get front row this time, but I did get 7th row.

    I've always heard that if you have to use the words 'except/but' when you are talking about bras that you are in the wrong bra. I want to say that I've also heard that if the straps slip, you are in too small cup size. True....yes or no?

    Dumbest question I've ever heard (during a news interview with a doctor this morning).

    The newswoman said to her guest: "Let's talk about some of the reasons why people might want to avoid having surgery on their back."

    My answer: "Ummmm. Let's see. Because it's SURGERY on your BACK."

    I've always heard that too but my mom has very sloping shoulders and she said she never has found a bra strap that didn't slip. She was telling me about a bra that finally doesn't slip but IMO it resembles a sports bra without being a sports bra. I forget the name. She finds them at CVS.

    Do you mean CVS as in the pharmacy store? Oh my. I'll check out, but I've never seen bras in there. I really must get one that doesn't slip.

    There is a speciality bra shop in Raleigh, but the bras are very expensive. I went there once and got fitted for a strapless for a wedding and it was VERY pricy. And the bra was so hard, uncomfortable and pointy in the ends, I never wore it but once. I paid over $50.00 on it. Big waste.

    I want to say I've seen a device that attaches to the backs of the bra straps and meets in the middle of you back that pulls the straps toward your spine, but I have no idea when or where.

    Paul, I've been waiting on a man to chime in. What took you so long??
