   Gram77 posted on Health & Diet  I struggle with super dry skin, always have. I think I have purchased every soap and lotion on the market. If I wear a black article of clothing the inside will be covered with fine white powder, however, it is dry skin. I'm ready for any and all suggestions.

   BirdsNest  Coconut oil is good rubbed on the skin. We also use it to cook with. WalMart has a good price on the LouAnna coconut oil. In the aisle with all the other oils. Eucerin is also a good body lotion, I have used it alot. Mostly got it for my hands because I am always washing something or getting my hands wet and in the winter I get super dry cracked areas around the nails.

   Gram77  Coconut oil sounds like a good idea. Eucerin doesn't (for me ) last a whole day before I flake.

   Hollyhock  Coconut oil is excellent. Shea butter, grape seed oil and olive oil are good too. The fewer ingredients the better. You can use vitamin E oil from a bottle or break open a capsule. Eucerin may have alcohol. Baby oil may have mineral oil.

My own dry skin started with taking a diuretic.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I just checked my insane response to the movie Marty. I am under the covers in shame. No more quick glances and quicker answers. At least I bet there was some good natured laughter.
Better luck tomorrow. :(

   MeiDei  I didn't take your response as insane & I didn't laugh (no chemistry in that photo kiss BTW ); I'm gladdened to have you, and anyone else, guessing than being silent.

   StormCnter  Aw, Gram, thinking the guy looked like William Holden doesn't hold a candle to my labeling the wrong guy on the first photo I posted here. I had to apologize I felt so bad.

Guess away from now on.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Anyone reading or has read the latest Jack Reacher novel? It's really good and lo and behold, Reacher has developed a bit of a sense of humor in this book.

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  I have talked about this before but since then my pet peeve has turned into a bit of anger. About a week ago (maybe longer ) in Orlando, a mother, her very young baby and her 4 year old boy crossed in the middle of a rather dark street and all were struck by a car. They were all rushed to the hospital. Mom and boy are still in the hospital and the baby died. I am heart broken that she lost her baby and I don't want to see anyone injured so......why, why do people choose to not walk the short distance to a traffic light and a cross walk?

   Gram77  I must make a correction. Orlando is incorrect, it was the Tampa area. Sorry.

   Balogreene  That scares me, I see it all the time, and they are often crossing with no streetlights, so they can't be seen at night. I feel sorry for the person who hit them, what a burden to carry.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  This has nothing to do with anything, just wondering. How is the huge Christmas tree in New York chosen?

   StormCnter  Gram, I haven't found specifically the method, but the donors of this year's tree are also the 2014 National Regional Tree Farmers of the year. Here's a link from a few days ago.

   Balogreene  Gram, I lived in Manhattan for 10 years, and marveled at that tree every year. I guessed there were height and width requirements, and volunteer donors. I do know, it takes several other trees to fill it in appropriately.

   StormCnter  Gram, I apologize. I sent information about the wrong tree. I misread your question and thought it was the Capitol tree in DC. This link is about the Rockefeller Center tree and tells you how it's chosen. I apologize.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Just a mention. Was up late the other night and ran across an old movie that I had totally forgotten about. It was Pete Kelley's Blues. Peggy Lee was quite good and who wouldn't like Ella Fitzgerald.

   StormCnter  You're a nightowl, too. My husband is. He sees lots of those old movies. As for me, however, I'll be propping the eyelids open to watch the returns tonight.

   Richdet  TCM is devoting Monday nights this month to great silent-film stars. I saw Clara Bow in "It" the other night. I paused on it to satisfy some curiosity about her and ended up watching the whole thing because she was so fun to watch. Not surprising why she was such a phenom in her day, but I was also struck by how contemporary she seems. She still has "It." And Gary Cooper turned up in a small uncredited bit playing a newspaper reporter. He has "It" too.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Hubby and I put our marks (hopefully ) in the right boxes to get Florida on it's feet again, but we truly don't know if either Crist or Scott has what it takes. Politics make me nuts!

   Safetydude  As of 11:00P it looks like Rick Scott will retain the governorship and pot will be not be legal here in Florida, Gram.

I'm guessing the comment..."get Florida on it's feet again"...
means that you are a Crist supporter?

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Spotted your remark about that one actor's odd name. I have no idea why I remembered that. I seem to have loads of useless stuff wandering around in my head. But then it comes time to remember something important and I'm blank. I'm really good at running to the store and then wondering what I wanted when I get there! Age I guess.

   StormCnter  No, Gram. I tell my family that I just have so much important stuff crammed into my head that sometimes something falls out. It's not age, it's just overflow!

But I remain impressed that you knew Yaphet Kotto.
