    And I'll bet there aren't many of us in the other 40% who don't pay
    $30-$50 a year for software to simplify things. I like to read
    through the directions whenever I feel like I'm paying TurboTax too
    much. There's always some part of it that makes the $50 well
    worth the money.

    Our complicated tax system is an [regressive] economy booster.

    since the majority of our congressmen pay someone to prepare your taxes, so
    you may very well be right.

    So far, hubby hasn't bought software or paid someone else to do it. I
    think he thinks of it as a challenge and he's pretty good at keeping
    what we owe to a minimum w/o setting off any audit buttons. When you
    think about it, the tax code is written by lawyers turned politicians
    - so of course it's as clear as mud to the rest of us.

    Yeah, some of the stuff doesn't have ANY oil in it. It should have
    EVOO in it (or on top of it). You're lucky if you find a brand even
    made with refined olive oil. Let alone real lemon juice instead of
    citric acid.

    Well we did but sadly when I looked it up last night it looks like the
    restaurant who made it is now out of business. I was wondering why I
    couldn't find their falafil (that's their spelling) wraps any more. I loved
    those things. Central Market quit carrying them and went to another brand
    that were weird and not so good because they put iceberg lettuce in them. I
    suppose this wouldn't be a problem if they were really fresh but they would
    have a pull date of like 2 weeks out. So you never really knew how fresh
    they were. And the one that I bought had turned all soggy from the lettuce.
    They must have complaints about those because I only saw them the one time
    and never again.

    The average price for hearing aids is around $2000 each. A binaural set
    will be around $4000. You can get hearing aids a lot cheaper on the
    internet. My understanding is that Costco is ramping this thing up.

    Why don't you just make your own to your liking? I'm sure there are a
    number of reasons why you don't...

    Because I can't make it in individual cups? Yeah, I could put it in a
    container. And wouldn't I need a food processor for that? I got rid of
    mine and don't intend to get another. I can get plenty of other hummus that
    is good. I just can't get any in individual cups, AFAIK and I don't want to
    have to lug a container back home. I had to grab something quickly to eat
    at the dance studio. So that's what I did.

    But you can find really small rubbermaid-type containers and pack it
    in those. You can even find them at the dollar stores. And then you
    can make it with whatever or no oil you want...And you can go to
    Goodwill and get a little processor, or even Target. Ok, your turn!

    Yeah. I have them. As I said, I didn't want to lug a container back home.
    And I don't *want* a food processor. I have a small kitchen and no place to
    put it. Oh and I don't want to make hummus. I like to cook. I don't much
    like to just whiz stuff up in a food processor.

    I threw the hummus away. Nobody will eat it. The peanut butter is very
    runny. Not to my liking but the flavor is fine.

    Lay of the crack, Julie. You have an excuse for everything. The
    container weighs about an ounce and you have a purse and car to put it
    in until you get home. How the **** hard is it to save the container
    and take it home? It's not hard at all.

    You're just FULL of these super-lame-assed excuses just to create
    drama and get attention for your psychotic, sorry-ass.

    > And I don't *want* a food processor.


    Stick blender or regular blender works just fine. That's how I do
    mine. Got either of those? Or are they too messy?

    Well then I guess you're just **** out of luck, then. Go cry in your
    pillow and keep it out of RFC. Obviously we can't help you with any
    of your problems - so don't even bother.

    Um... I wasn't asking for help. Were you asking for help with your buggy
    flour?

    And that is why we will never have a simplified tax system. For years
    I did the paper forms, but then I started using a tax program. I pay
    Turbo Tax because it is just easier and faster, especially since I
    have to file two states also. I'm willing to pay for convenience.


    I also file taxes for a few other people. They are high school
    graduates and not stupid by any means. They are, however, befuddles
    by the tax forms. Many people find them intimidating. I do it for
    free because I just can't see them paying the fees the H & R Block
    type places charge.

    No, but I didn't explain my flour buying history, my reasons for
    buying it, who in my family eats what kinds of flour, blame the store
    for it (ridiculous subject), and I didn't poo-poo all the suggestions
    for freezing, double bagging, and storing in special containers and
    then make excuses as to why they would be impractical or otherwise
    make my life miserable and seem insignificant.

    Yeah, those little containers are a total PIA to lug around. And as
    far as cooking goes, we all know what a PIA is for you also. You bitch
    about not knowing where your next paycheck is, but resort to spending
    money on things you don't end up liking, go bad, daughter refuses to
    eat, ad nasuem....I think you should just dig yourself in a hole for
    the next 6 months. Your turn!!!

    Yeah, and she throws away more food than anyone I know who's openly
    admitted it.
