When I lived in the Oklahoma Panhandle I loved using Ranch Style Beans in a Mexican salad. Now that I have moved to Maine I can not find them here. What can I use instead of Ranch Style Beans in my Mexican salad? Where can I order Ranch Style Beans online? Thanks for any help on this.

I always wanted stainless steal appliances, until I finally got them. They are so easily fingerprinted and very hard to keep clean. There are a number of products that are for cleaning stainless steel, but I found after trying a good many of them, it still required an awful lot of elbow grease. I took mine back and purchased black instead. It shows dust, but at least it wipes off easily.

For the person whose kitten bites them: Keep a few light, hollow cardboard tubes (centers from paper towels work well) around the house where you most often play with the kitten. Whenever he misbehaves, bop him lightly (the noise will surprise him) and at the very same time give him a one or two-word command, such as "don't bite". After a few times he will get the connection and you can just speak instead of bopping. You could also use a spray bottle, but that's more messy and not as convenient. This works for cats or dogs of any age. No, it isn't abuse; I don't beat them. I've been using this for years and they all still love me.
