tradition of its own. We reserve one night to
watch all our home movies from the season. We
usually end up watching some of the other
years too. And our son has become a whiz at
putting together slideshows on DVD of digital
pictures, so we look forward to the first of many
photo slideshows to add to the nights
entertainment." -- Y.K. in Alabama

but I have the bagger package all frozen foods
together in a paper bag. The bag is easily
identifiable so it can be taken inside and put
away first." -- A.D. in Washington

emotion." -- School nurse in Arizona

just as they are, and no sorting is required
after they are done." -- D.C. in Mississippi
