I just bought a juice extractor. It's very nice but it takes a lot of space. Help me justify this space with ideas on how to exploit it better. Carrot juice oK. But how about recipes, desserts, sauces? What else could I use it for?

We broke up. Then, I had a miscarriage. It's been several months, but I'm beginning to feel really guilty. Should I tell him? If so, how? (maybe a little NSFW, better safe than sorry)

The Palm Z22 is the most perfect pda ever made - but the world being what it is (aka stupid), they have discontinued it. Now my husband's has died, and we have no idea what to replace it with.

[RelationshipFilter]: Omelettes. Which is better to add to the eggs? I believe it's milk, and contend her family resorted to water as a result of poverty. What is the difference or is it just preference?

Will Star Trek on IMAX be shown in pan & scan or will there be bars on the top and bottom (I'd prefer bars)? Were any of the scenes shot for IMAX? I'm having trouble finding information online.

Bloglines is broken again. When it works, rarely, seldom perfectly, even then not for long, it's an excellent service. I dislike Google reader, it lacks, for me, the ease of reading. Maybe I need to try harder. But I wonder why someone doesn't buy Bloglines and make it work. Who ever runs it now can't seem to do it properly. Why doesn't someone buy it and fix it, or why isn't there a competitor that provides a reader that works. Besides Google reader are there any readers out there I don't know about?

Planning our wedding registry. What's your most favorite kitchen /cooking item? Do have a utensil, tool, pot or pan that you LOVE to use and couldn't imagine cooking without?

I need ideas for modern groomsmen gifts. My groomsmen don't really smoke, drink, golf, or wear french cuffs, which eliminates 99% of the results for "groomsmen gifts" from Google. Mainly our common interests include coffee, photography, design, and vaguely geeky 30-something interests (1980s Spielberg/Lucas movies, Tron, Atari 2600, Apple products). (We're not the kind of geeks that wear the term with some sort of goony pride, so ThinkGeek is right out. So are things like knives, flashlights, and AirSoft toys) Any ideas?

Help me find a pair of comfortable, attractive all-purpose male shoes for a South American trip. Requirements: can be worn with jeans, brown pants-- fits in at bars and restaurants (tho not super classy ones) but still durable and comfortable enough to walk 5-6 miles a day on rough terrain. I'm not doing major trekking but will be walking on some dirty terrain. Costs: less than $90 USD.I'm not looking for hiking boots.
