What are "that's what she said" jokes?  ???   There's an ad playing for something that uses the phrase.

From what I've heard of it (I may not be totally accurate) it's basically something said whenever someone says something that could be taken in a...less than worksafe manner. So if you say something like "And I was so sore I couldn't even sit down", while it may be totally innocent, it could be taken the wrong way, and that's where "That's what she said" came in. Basically implying what you've just said was a s*xual comment.

It's an updated version of the old "...said the bishop to the actress" line.

Would you be upset if someone you are pretty close to, who was in your wedding and who is family did not invite you to their wedding?

They didn't have our address. I messaged a close relative and have all the details, so we will be attending and the invitation will be mailed today. I'm very excited!

When it comes to deadheading flowers, do you have to pinch them off with your fingers, or can you clip them with clippers? I always wonder if I'm doing it wrong when I use clippers but that's what I prefer. (I suppose it might depend on the flower, but I'm speaking generally.)

This reminds me, I have some sort of rose bushes in our front yard, should I be deadheading them?  At what point should I do this?  When the blooms fall off or wait until winter?

On the page with all the topics, just to the left is a column that always has a little notebook-like thing in it but sometimes a " :(" or " :)" face in there.  Where do the faces and symbols come from?

It has been over a decade since I had a garden, and I hadn't grown roses, but as I recall the general recommendation was to deadhead shortly after the blooms fall.  This encourages the plant to send out new blooms rather than spend that energy producing seeds.

And you cut back to just above the first full set of 5 leaves, if I remember correctly.

LOL! I always wondered about that too!

I'm betting we're going to see a lot more icons in that column. ;D

What's the difference between "converted" and "non-converted" rice?

Converted rice-has been precooked, so cooking time is much shorter (i.e. Uncle Ben's and Minute Rice)
Non-converted rice takes about 15 minutes to cook (and I've found to be much less expensive)

Uncle Ben's is converted rice--it has been parboiled.

But Minute Rice is different--it's sort of "instant" rice. It has already been cooked and then dried. So it cooks faster--like 5 minutes. But it has a very different texture than regular rice.

^ I have textural issues with food, so instant rice isn't a favorite.
