Subject: Re: Food safety when preparing food

Forum: Food safety when preparing food
Hi all!

I am a C-Net graduate just stopping to say "Hi."

I have to admit that I am very clean about food prep and serving, too. I don't go so far as to take temperatures at home, but I did do this when I worked in a restaurant. One day our restaurant chef went flying out the door in the middle of our huge evening dinner time for a family emergency and I ended up being the chef that day! I love to cook, so I was all for this and my generally good standards were well within guidelines for public serving.

I tend to be a germ phobe. I cannot stand it when people serve from their bare hands! Use a utensil, at least, spatulas are real handy. I don't eat off of anyone else's fork, spoon, or drink from anyone's cup. In today's world that is too much for me.

Yes, I am very careful about how I cook and serve food, and I appreciate the same good service to me, as well.

I like that you live that way.

Forum: Do you name your car?
Hi Kat!

I am a graduate of C-Net just popping in for a look at how this all has changed. I love your question, so I thought I would respond to it.

You should absolutely name your car. I am also getting a newer car this week and I have named every car I had in the past and plan to name this car, too.

My first car was solid white, so I named it "Snowball." My second car was gray in color, so I named it "Fox." This newest car is light green in color and I am asking for help in naming it. It is more of a mint green color, but I was thinking of the name "Jade" for this car.

It's just a fun thing to do. I really enjoy driving and I like having a personal relationship with my vehicles. We go through a lot together, so why not give them a name.

I say do it! Good luck,

Forum: How long have you been on C-net?
Hey Leland!

Welcome aboard! I joined C-Net in late April of 2016 and just this week graduated with the max $10,000 being earned. I suggest that you post a question each day, answer four other forums each day and get your two votes in each day. Remember we can vote twice on Wednesdays (two votes before 3 p.m. and two more votes after 3 p.m.). These votes and forum responses mean a lot to all participants so be sure to do what you can to help yourself and others here.

I found this forum to be fun and got to know some people here along the way. I came across C-Net by accident on the internet when I was surfing for some grants to pay for school. It was a blessing to have found this! I am very grateful for this help.

You will be winning scholarships as long as you keep participating. Come up with some interesting questions and you will get more attention that way. More postings means more points for you. I think this all went fast for me. Where else can you earn over $1,000 a month for school?

Hang in there and stay with it. All of this will work out for you.

Forum: Do you know your blood type?
Hey JeneluRose:

Just wanted to send a special good-bye to you. I graduated from C-Net this week and will no longer be able to earn any more money here. I really enjoyed your postings and encourage you to keep up the good work.

I wish I knew my blood type. I even asked my doctor to perform the test, but they won't do that. They said I could donate blood and find out my blood type there. I even had nasal surgery and they will not tell me what blood type I am! Why the big secrets on this?!

My brother is a rare "O" version, so it would be nice to know if I have a rare type, too. I'll have to head to the blood bank, I guess. I would really like to know what blood type I am. Funny how you can learn this in a Biology class lab and I cannot get professionals to tell me.

Such is life!

Take care,

Forum: I'm a C-Net Graduate!!!
Hey Everybody!

This week I reached the $10,000 mark on my C-Net earnings and am now a Graduate of this forum. I can't imagine leaving this group without taking the time to say what a pleasure it has been to know all of you. I wish you all the best and hang in there on your studies and postings to C-Net. It is well worth it.

I am so grateful to CollegeNet for this tuition help. I would not be in college today without this assistance, so thank you so very much.

For the Newbies on board, I suggest posting a new question each day, or as often as you can, because these postings get you noticed and you earn points faster by posting questions. Also, answer four other forums each day and make sure to vote for two candidates each day - we can vote twice each Wednesday (once before 3 p.m. and once again after 3 p.m.).

I wish you all the best. If you want to contact me: majpep1989@gmail.

Take care,

Forum: CollegeNET - Wall of Thanks
Hi MotivatedOne and all!

I send C-Net staff thank you notes every chance I get. This past week I Graduated from the C-net allowable amount earned and am VERY grateful for their help. I, too, have paid for some of my college expenses through this money and am also paying off a past student loan, too. This has been a HUGE amount of help to me.

I cannot believe that in this short time of being on C-Net I earned the $10,000 limit. It was done in fun ways, too. I will really miss all of these participants. I might stop by to post for some of you and I believe I can still vote. I need to get some answers on these Graduate questions I have.

Thank you ALL for helping me achieve this! I do appreciat this.

Take Care,


Subject: Do you play the Lottery in any way?

Forum: Do you play the Lottery in any way?
Hey Everybody!

How often or at all do you play any Lottery games?

I usually play once a week, the $2 Lotto game, which is usually the largest amount of money. I have only won $4 on it so far, which is not very good odds, but I like to bet on this. It's just a fun game of chance and it's like they say in their commercial "Somebody has to win. Why not you?" Yes, they have me snared on that comment, but there are worse ways I could spend $2, right?

What's your story?

Forum: What was your last vacation?
Hey 4 His Glory and all!

I am so in NEED of a vacation, such as a hot sandy beach somewhere warm and sunny. There is no money to do this anytime soon.

My last vacation was a school trip to Mall of America this past November. I got to shop all day and enjoy the ride there on a huge chartered Greyhound bus. That's as good as it gets for my life!

I need a real vacation so bad! Let me check my Lottery tickets.

Forum: Your toothbrush?
Hey Peacelover and all!

My manual toothbrush happens to be blue this month. I buy a new one every month. I prefer colors of orange, red or yellow, but they only had blue this time and I also had blue last month, too. Oh well!

My bristles are a soft variation. This is what my dentist wants me to have. My electric toothbrush also has soft bristles.

A new month is coming and maybe I can have a new color toothbrush!

Forum: How do I tell you I am gay
Hey Motiva and all!

Why are your embarrassed that you are gay? This is a part of what makes you wonderful. Be proud of that. I grew up with a male who we all knew was gay. He refused to admit this, even though we came right out and talked about this, but we all knew. He was involved in a relationship with this other male who used him badly and broke his heart. My friend was on the brink of suicide this was so intense. We all came forward for him to help him heal and he was surprised that we all knew he was gay without him even telling us openly. Now he is more relaxed about his lifestyle and we have all accepted it long ago. Your true friends will stand by you and those who won't you don't need in your life anyway!

I suspect that your friends know and maybe their jokes are a way of trying to get you to stand up for yourself. It's not the nicest way to do this, but I have heard of this happening to others.

You have a right to be happy. I say just come out and tell people you are close to and let the friendships ly where they will after that. Why be miserable in your life to satisfy others? Life is too short. Live it to the fullest the way you want to live.

Talk to your friends one by one if that would be better for you, but do come out soon. Be proud of who you are!
