    Name the brand of turkey!!!!!

    Literally just saw this story on the news right before reading your post and Jenny-O was mentioned in the news story. After reading your post I googled and the first result mentioned Jenny-O in the second sentence of the article. Not sure where you get your news from but "the Government" seems to be sharing this information with everyone but you.

    auto loan rates

    You could try waiting a few more months to see if the manufacturer offers interest rate deals to clear out end of model year inventory. They often offer lower interest rates, more off MSRP, and/or cash back incentives to move "old" inventory to make room for the new model year vehicles. Congrats on the new job!

    How will history judge us?

    Yes! Why can't families be kept together? Guy in Babyland, I am frankly quite stunned by your position on this issue. As a fellow NICU nurse, I know we have a duty to advocate for our littlest patients and that we make it a priority to minimize separation of parents and their children in our care. We educate parents on the importance of therapeutic touch with their babies and kangaroo care. We encourage them to be present even when touch and/or holding isn't possible. We tell them how important their presence is to the development and well-being of their baby. We make every effort to involve parents in any possible aspect of care because we know it's in the baby's best interest. The importance of minimizing parent-child separation is a cornerstone of the care that we provide. This policy of separating children from their parents goes against everything we advocate for when we are focused on the well-being of the child. I'm just baffled that you would take a defensive position on this policy.

    I've liked every other Campbell's soup I've tried and have been a fan for years (well, decades, lol), but, the tomato soup...(((shudder))). Can we still be friends? :)

    "Obama's??" what? Avid Reader, you don't even partially understand. Sour Lemon did not engage you in your political opinion, rather your "who me?" disclaimer that your post was not meant to be inflammatory. Your passive aggressive poke at his/her user name just makes you look petty. But I'm sure you completely understand that.

    Shaven Pubic Hair

    Seriously? A cultural shift in personal grooming has made such an impression on you that you joined AN and your first post is about...pubic hair?

    More dog angst...hemangiosarcoma

    Because the (relatively speaking) brief period of grief and anguish we feel after losing them pales in comparison to the immeasurable joy they bring us while we have them. Because the gut wrenching feeling that comes with their memory after we lose them eventually gives way to smiles and feelings of love and happiness at their mere memory. And because *you* are the very best person in the world that could be helping your pup deal with his health crisis and he loves you all the more for it. (((Hugs))) to you and your fur-babies.
