    It's mostly my all-cotton blouses and jeans that need ironing and I never used to have to iron jeans. Now, they all have these industrial strength wrinkles that barely budge no matter how hot the iron or how much steam I use .

    The unremovable wrinkles in your jeans is God's way of trying to tell you to "let it go, cricket."

    Here's a question that I'm sure someone has an answer to: Why, when there is a professional sand volleyball game/tournament are the women so ridiculously scantily clad in these ugly bathing suits, and the men have the looser shorts? Of course, the women are pretty much built like the men, so I don't see that it is a "curves" factor. Somebody help me out, please.

    I don't think this will actually help you, but I know that clothing is in the rules for beach volleyball (it was questioned during the Olympics). Men should wear a sport tank top and shorts and women should wear tight clothes. Personally I find those rules...interesting, for lack of a better word.

    Interesting. The men that I've seen playing this weekend in my hometown wore shorts and no shirt. It would be interesting to hear the history behind the rules.

    I've got that stuff, and use it occasionally. I wouldn't use it on something that I really needed to LOOK ironed, but it does get the worst of the wrinkles out.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Ok folks. I need some advice here. I'm going to be calling my neice and need some words of wisdom for her. Here is the story.

    She is 23. Unmarried, has a 2 1/2 yo.girl. She has problems with depression and some type of personality disorder that I cannot remember right now. She lives with her Mom (my sis) and her husband in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. So. She just had a baby boy. The father was out of the picture early on, but all along has said he wants to be in the baby's life. He was at the hospital for the birth and was very much "hands on" with all the care and feeding. They decided to "share custody" before baby was born. Now baby has been home almost a full week and has spent every other night with my neice or the father.!!

    Then Friday night when baby was with dad, my niece goes out partying, gets stoned and calls to see if baby is ok. She also tells dad she is high. He calls next day, mad and says she is unfit. He says he taped the convo. My sister talks him into bringing the baby back, and now niece says she is not going to bring dad the baby back tomorrow blah blah. What a royal mess. I am so mad. My sis is so stressed out. But most importantly, what about this baby? He is not a freakin puppy! What to say to her?
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    Start with, "He is not a freakin puppy!" If she is old enough to breed twice, she is old enough to understand that her days of hedonism are over. Responsible parents do not go out and get stoned. She may not like it, but that's too damn bad. Her kids' well-being is more important than her hurt feelings.

    to that! And I'm guessing no one here has been to see a lawyer about a custody arrangement...but if this keeps up it could wind up a very adversarial situation. If they have court mediators near this town that may be what they want to use before they irritate each other any more.

    Well, mine are loose and wrinkles hang out right away... and if they were tight I think they'd stretch out....
