Easy, tasty and cheap - broccoli and pasta recipe

Marcella Hazan in Marcella Cucina has a variation on this with mozzarella. It is a bit more work but it is worth it.

Kansas Chamber releases poll showing significant support for coal-burning power plants

Assuming that the 600 was a random sample, this poll would have a margin of error that should have been reported. If it was not a random sample the results cannot be generalized.

I think that for a random sample of 600 the margin of error would be about 4%. So the result was somewhere between 47% and 55%. Since this band covers 50% I don't think that you can report this as a majority.

The actual question should have also been reported.

Affordable Adoptions


Yes children with disabilities can be very complicated and expensive.
The best advice is to have a full assessment of the child's needs by the best professionals around so you know what to expect. You can also use this information to get the needed assistance from SRS.

Not all of the children waiting to be adopted have these very complicated disabilities

Affordable Adoptions


Most states including Kansas are open to single people adopting and I don't know of any stated age limits. Many grandparents are adopting. Of course the age of the adoptive parents and the age of the child are important considerations in making a match.
