FusionCash / Payment Proof $1 Bonus
« on: August 25, 2019, 08:26:38 pm »Message ID: 1289880
We used to get a $1 when we would post a screenshot of our payment or picture of our check. What happened to that? I know it's been a few years since I've been on here and things change...so just wondering if anyone knows about it. Thanks!

Off-Topic / Drinking Straws
« on: April 10, 2019, 11:40:58 am »Message ID: 1270311
I am in charge of fundraising for our high school band and we are having a bazaar this month. One of my vendors makes and sells glass drinking straws here in the Pacific Northwest. I never really thought much about the whole plastic drinking straw issues...until I did some looking into it!

What are your thoughts?  Which drinking straw do you prefer?

1) Plastic
2) Glass
3) Stainless Steel
4) Bamboo

Here are some fun facts I found while doing some research :)

Plastic Straws

The straws which might come with your cold soft drink or hot tea/coffee, are made from plastic. A chemical used to make plastic straws can mimic the activity of hormones, such as estrogen, in the body, which can lead to reproductive disorders, breast and prostate cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity and other conditions.This risk is compounded when combined with heat, as warmer temperatures cause more compounds to leak out into food.
BPA free plastic straws can add other hormone-altering substances into the foods and drinks you and your family are consuming. Glass straws do not contain these harmful substances, you eliminate this risk when switching from plastic to glass straws.

Stainless Steel
There is much controversy over stainless steel straws as a good substitute for the plastic straw. Issues you may find with these metal straws are they can heat up or become very cold quickly, so the outside of the straw on you lids feel like it is burning or freezing. In addition there are many types of stainless steel; some have toxic metals combined within the stainless steel. When heated up these toxins can leach into your drink. Of course the obvious is that you can not see inside these straws to be sure they are clean and ready to us.

Bamboo Straws

This alternative is an unusual one but oh so natural! Bamboo drinking straws are eco-friendly and made from real whole bamboo stalks, however mildew which is a kind of mold that's particularly hard to get rid of once it starts loves the inside of straws.  It may be harder to get out of bamboo straws because you can not see through the bamboo and it does not dry easily. 

The other benefit of glass straws is that they are far more environmentally friendly. Traditional plastic straws are one-time-use, and cannot be recycled, so they wind up in landfills and our oceans as little micro-particles. This is when our fish end up eating them and we end up eating the fish with plastic. It is a scary cycle.

While one individual straw doesnít create an environmental disaster, itís the scale that creates an issue - in the United States alone, over 500 million disposable plastic straws are used and thrown away every year. You can wash and reuse glass straws, you wonít be contributing to the waste.

Off-Topic / Do you like to sing?
« on: April 03, 2019, 11:25:37 am »Message ID: 1269206
I am NOT good at singing at all, but I sing and dance almost every day.  As I walk through the house,
I'll grab one of my kids to do a twirl as they pass me.  Some laugh, others shrug, roll their eyes  ::) or yell "MOM!"
But I know deep down inside they love it... I try to make each day as fun for them and for me that I can.   :in-love:

Support / Lost referral...
« on: January 22, 2011, 08:15:59 pm »Message ID: 302580
I had a friend of mine sign up, but she does not show in my referrals.  I had her log into her account, and it doesn't show anyone under referred by.

Is there anyway of changing things now?  She told me that she'd just sign up again, I told her to wait till I found out more first. 

(I know her full name, we have been friends since Junior High School!!)

What to do...what to do!

Please share with us your favorite cookie, candy, fudge, treat, or whatever you want Recipe!!!!!!!
Here's mine:
Candy Cane Cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red food color
1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy (as fine as you can get it)
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Thoroughly mix butter, shortening, confectioners' sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla. Blend in flour and salt. Divide dough in half; blend the red food coloring into one half. Shape 1 teaspoon of dough from each half into 4-inch rope. For smooth, even ropes, roll them back and forth on a lightly floured board. Place ropes side by side; press together lightly and twist. Complete cookies one at a time. Place them on an un-greased baking sheet. Curve top down to form the handle of the candy cane.

Bake about 9 minutes or until set and very light brown. Mix candy and granulated sugar. Immediately sprinkle cookies with candy mixture; remove from baking sheet. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

What did you put on your Christmas list this year?

Being a Mother of 6 children, I pretty much end up buying and wrapping my own! 

But the best present for me is watching their faces light up and the little dance they do with excitement as they open up theirs!!
