Re: How many of us have Frank's Sign?

I've heard of this relationship since I was a kid as I remember my dad and grandmother discussing it. They both had creases in their earlobes. My grandmother died of heart disease at 73 and my dad from AD at 83. I don't have a crease though, thankfully I guess.

Re: Replacement for Butter for Dipping Crab

I would definitely be interested but kids are coming into town this weekend so the timing doesn't work for me either. Next time!

Re: Question! Breastfeeding moms and babies...

My mom literally kept a box of Fannie May candy "hidden" in her nightstand drawer. My guess is the Fanny Farmer candy in her nightstand helped her get through having 8 lively kids and their friends over. Your mom sounds like a sweetheart! NF52 my mom would shudder at the confusion of Fann...

The online version is free, and they offer an offline version for $2.99 per month. I only have used the online version since I...
