Re: "I want the best dim sum in NYC"
(from mitch 8 years, 6 months ago)
Hi Amy, I forgot that I had posted this question on a different community I belong to. Here are some of their answers:

For dim sum made fresh to order - Red Egg or Dim Sum Go Go. For good dim sum with communal tables and rolling carts - Grand Harmony.

Oriental Garden is excellent. I think the NYT said they were the best dim sum in the city but I have always thought so. Really cheap and not too loud or crowded.

If you're looking for amazing vegan dim sum, check Buddha Bodai:
www.chinatownvegetarian.com/

Maybe not totally dim sum but you have to get the soup dumplings at Joe's Shanghai:
www.joeshanghairestaurants.com

Although really a fusion type restaurant, try Chinatown Brasserie. The dim sums are very delicate (ie not too large and have thin translucent wrappings/skins): this is true indication of good dim sum.

Pings Seafood on Mott street.

It's making me hungry writing this reply!
Re: "I want a pet turtle"

Pet red-eared slider turtlePet red-eared slider turtle
We took care of my daughter's class turtle (red eared slider) this past summer.

My take on turtles as pets:
1) they're pretty boring
2) they make a big mess in their tank
3) they're one of the easiest pets we've had
4) they're very boring

That being said, she loved it. Of course, I ended up doing most of the upkeep. We had a filter that ran constantly to keep the floating debris at bay (still gets pretty disgusting under the rocks, though.) We also had a timed, once-a-day feeder to deliver his food when we were gone for a few days.

Our lineup of turtle accessories...

Tetra ReptoFilter In-tank Filter ($13).

AquaChef Aquarium Fish Feeder ($25).

Omega One Juvenile Turtle Pellets ($5).
Re: "I want a new money clip"
(from mieyun 8 years, 8 months ago)
Hi there -
Here's another money clip option that I thought was nifty.
http://www.moneyclamp.com/

One thing I thought was cool about it was that it looks like it can handle thin and thick bundles of cash and cards.

Re: "I want a new money clip"
(from mitch 8 years, 8 months ago)
I'm a money clip guy myself. If I had to replace my beloved clip, I'd allow the following in my pocket:

* Steampunk Mecanik Beetle Money Clip (Awesome, I may get this one myself!)

* Grid Money Clip (stylish, stainless steel)

* BRASS ELEPHANT ...moneyclip (for your GOP friends)

There's hundreds more great ones on etsy:

Re: "I want a easy and inexpensive print vendor to make my holiday cards"
(from mitch 8 years, 8 months ago)
NB: If you get too close to your holiday deadline you can send out a free online video holiday card from my other site Sharenik.com !

For print cards, I like the designs at TinyPrints.com. There are some decent online discounts available:

VistaPrint is always a viable options, although I don't like their designs as much:

The good:
--------------
Mamapedia: "Desperate Mom Seeking Soccer Coach Gift Ideas":
http://www.mamapedia.com/article/desp...
* Restaurant gift card (not exciting, but universally useful)
* Gift card for equipment or classroom supplies (same)
* Combine with a nicely framed and signed team or class photo

Today/MSNBC: "The best ‘thank you’ gifts for under $25":
http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/3431627...
* a bit more clever if not more risky options

And the bad:
------------------------
http://factoidz.com/six-all-time-wors...
1) Fish
2) Perfume, cologne or aftershave
3) Plants
4) Wine
5) Fundraising
