    Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep corn dog nuggets warm for a child to eat at school?

    stephlw, I order my glasses from Not to seem spammy, but I have had good experiences with that site. They are SUPER cheap, but well made. I usually buy 3 or 4 pair at once from the site for less than the price I would pay for 1 pair at my optometrist. They have held up very well, and I'm hard on my glasses. It's nice to have a back up pair (or two). Also, they have great customer service. The only negative is you cannot try on the glasses prior to ordering. The way that I've gotten around that is to go to the optical center at Wal-Mart or my optometrist, find a suitable pair and write down the numbers that are on the arms and bridge of the frames (there are 3 sets of numbers) and match the numbers as closely as possible to frames on the site. Also, you will need your pupilary distance (PD) but you can get that measurement from your eye doctor when you're there. It's a little leg work, but it's definitely worth it with the savings!

    On the Dannon Light and Fit Facebook page, there's a $1.00 Q for a 4-pack of their new Light & Fit Greek nonfat yogurt.

    Look out for the Corona $10 off fresh beef meat rebate! I found them at the Lowes Foods in Clayton today. Also had a $1/2 for Pace products and a .55/1 CA cheese. Lowes has lots of beef on sale this week...yay for 5lbs of ground beef for free after rebate!

    stephlw, Do not get glasses from WalMart! I got a pair from WalMart for my daughter a few years ago and we had so many problems with the frames that I had to go back to the eye doctor and get some there. She still has those frames 3 years (and a bike wreck) later.

    Nancy gave me this info the last time I was having issues getting my N&O papers delivered and we have not had a problem for the past few weeks since we called this #.


    It's a local N&O number for the Wake County Home Delivery Manager. Have all the dates, missing papers, etc that you've been having in writing in front of you so you can take her through your repeat problems.

    Even if you're not in Wake County, she will be able to either help you herself or pass you to someone there who can. Her name is Sherry Thomas."

    I get the N&O Sunday paper delivered to my home, but I keep having problems with them. Sometimes my paper gets delivered, sometimes it doesn't, and then other times it will get delivered but will be missing sections (including the coupons). I've complained every time it happens (3-4 times now), but nothing seems to help. Does anyone know who I can talk to at N&O or have any other advice? Thanks!
