Why would hair cutting shears require an adult over 21 (proof required) signature for UPS delivery?

How accurate is UPS on their estimated time for next attempt with delivery?

I looks like I'm going to have to take some time off work to accept a package for DD#2  :-\

Appears to be a CYA move: an adult signed for the package vs just anyone. I've signed for a lot of packages but they have never asked to see proof of my age.*


*wanders over to the "Your "I'm not that old!!!" moments " thread.*

Are there laws in your area about buying / transporting  knives / weapons? If so, hair cutting shears may count as knives for the purpose of the rules.

I've heard of more than one murder performed by library, photo, or other long & sharp shears - so they may indeed be categorizing them as potential weapons.

How willing are nail technicians to take on really nasty nails?  My toenails desperately need professional help but they are in very dire straights.  I assume that nail technicians have "seen it all" but I am still scared to go in for a pedicure with them in the state that they are in (fungal, one black nail, long and sharp, uneven).

Any assurances that they will help me?

They may not work on nails with a fungal infection, due to the risk of cross contamination.  I would call and ask.

Here a podiatrist also takes care of skin and nail conditions, he might be a good first step in order to have you feets healthy enought for a nail technicians.

I agree with both newbiePA and Carotte. I think that going to a podiatrist first for the severe problems will at least give you a clean bill of health so that a pedicurist will be able to fix the rest.

I get a pedi maybe once or twice a year and my feet are in pretty bad shape when I finally do go -- cracked skin around my heels, long/uneven nails, heavy cuticles, etc. -- they are clean, but not pretty.

I've gotten some brief questioning looks from pedicurists, but they do a great job. Often suggesting creams and regiment (which I never listen to :-[). They are always polite and never disparaging.

They want you to come back, so they will treat you well.

POD. I have been told by spas and salons that they are legally forbidden to have me as client, if I have any signs of my skin condition visible. The concern is 2 fold
1. I might have an undiagnosed infection that could be contagious
2. I am technically immune compromised and might catch something a "normal" (my word not their word) person wouldn't. If that got traced back to the facility, it could face penalties for unsafe practices.

This could probably get its own thread but is also a bit of a stupid question, so.

Can anyone recommend a fitness app for iOS that lets you track calories, what you eat, what's in your food (sodium, etc), and has NOTHING to do with that "my fitness pal" thing? I'm going to be giving my old iPod to my mother soon, and she's trying to track what she eats so she can try and keep her blood pressure down with dietary changes, so I thought I'd load an app onto there for her.

Not an app but I used SuperTracker (https://www.supertracker.usda.gov/default.aspx) for a while and enjoyed. It was easy to use and gave me all the information I needed.

there's a few diet tracker apps out there - but a lot of them are associated with fitness apps too.
check out some of the heart health organisations - I know that the Heart Foundation Australia has an app like that but I'm not sure about international availability.
... it might frighten them.

I think Nutracheck does that. It certainly lets you keep a food diary and has a huge food database of calories, fat, etc. There is a place to log activity too but it's not fitness based, per se.

Sparkpeople is pretty good too. Can't vouch for the ios app unfortunately, but the website is great and their food database is solid and the app was alright on android a couple of years ago.

Thanks for the suggestions! :) I'll check these out with Mom later and see if any of them fit her needs. (And hopefully get her to quit refusing to try Sparkpeople, just because my sister doesn't like it...)

Yea, for that I'd chat with a doc first.

How/where can I make pictures into line art?  I want to make my engagement photos into line art in order to make a coloring book (a joke between DF and me).  Does anyone know how and/or where I can get this done?
