I use to be a Cub Scout leader, but when Marina joined scouts it was to much.
DH is Cubmaster, and on the district traing staff. They are trying to recuit me to be a disrtict commionioner,requires only 1 hour a week. I know better than that.

We usually have scouts activites 3-4 times a week. (meetings. outings, training, Etc.)

[QUOTE=Ski-and-Sea;24044154]We drive old cars so we've escaped (knock on wood) having to look at new car prices. But now we're getting hit with the big ticket repair bills. Ouch.

I understand. I was dreading putting new engine in DH car when we were still paying on it. At least , it wasn't my van. It was paid off in Jan.

Dh last car, we ran until it gould no longer go. We love not have car payments.

My dad use to be a manager at an auto dealer in TX. We would get some good deals and fly down and pay cash. We would get them at trade in price.
We would tell him we were looking for a new car and he would keep his eye out. DH worked for airline, we would fly standby and go pick it up.

Marina wanted to add a smilie

Good Morning everyone!
We got another 5 inches of snow last night
The good news is that most of it should be gone by tomorrow. It's suppose to rain.

We got our new car last night

Congrats on the new car!!!!

Man...I'm so envious about the snow. We've only had a rain-infested winter this year. One snowstorm and that was it.

I am hoping that it is the last of the snow. I am ready for spring.

I can't hear it sliding off the roof. It's starting to melt!

I'll see if I can find some good Mickey clip art of him sitting in the sun sipping a tropical drink and then paste in a picture of a chilli pepper.

Hmmmm....thinking of Mexican food, the best chips and salsa we've ever had was in Cozumel. Can't find anything as good here in New Jersey. That was one of the reasons we picked the western itinerary over going to Tortola.

Hi all, I've neglected this thread, but I am back playing catch up! Welcome to the newbies!!

Have you guys ever been to Jose Tejas in Woodbridge? They have great home made chips. I don't do salsa, but my family loves it! They are tex-mex and very good, the place is always packed.

Good to see you back.

Woodbridge is a bit too far for us to go. Plus, with the price of gas I'm just not willing to drive very far to go out to eat anymore.

But I do loooooove good chips. Yeah, I'm not too much of a salsa person myself.

Speaking of hot food.....last night our school district had its biggest fundraiser - a chilli cookoff. Twenty two entrants. Never did get around to try them all but there was one I totally regretted. The teachers union had an entry and their chilli was so hot I actually was crying and I thought my tongue had burned off.

Don't understand the need to make something so hot that you can't enjoy the flavors.

Did try a yummy one that had chocolate and pineapples in it.

And my dentist always enters. Last year he was one of the top winners. Sadly he didn't win this year - he had a turkey chilli this year. But a friend of ours was the top winner.

I don't like anything hot either. There are a few places that make salsa that is very tasty but, mild. When I was pregnant, DH was constantly going to get me some.

Count me in as not liking things too spicy, either. On a scale of 1 to 10 I can handle about a 3 in terms of spicy.

My husband can handle about a 12.

Last summer on the Wonder our head server tried to get DH some hot peppers from the crew's dining room but turns out CMs can't bring food from their dining area to the passenger restaurants.

DH was bummed because he knew the food would have been extremely hot.

DH will admit a dish is hot if his face starts to sweat.

We went to Planet Hollywood in HAwaii. I ordered a pasta dish. It was not spicy. but, by the end of dinner. I was swaeting and started to hallucinate. I hated it. Dh laughed because he knew the ingredients would "build" up. He never told me.
