1. How do you stop a dog from begging for food at the dinner table?

I had the same issue with my dog before. What I did was put some of the human food and mix it with the dog food. Its the same theory with babies when you first give them tasting food/liquid. Overtime I started to decrease the amount of human food in the mix. Eventually, all I feed him now are dog food and he is happy with it

3. In China is it good manners to burp at the dinner table?

From a very young age, American children are taught not to make noises such as slurping or burping at the table while dining. In the Chinese culture, these sounds are considered compliments to the host when made while dining. For example: 1. To make a slurping sound while eating soup either from a bowl or spoon is a compliment to the chef. 2. Burping after the meal means the meal was very good and most satisfying.

If you want to give a whimsical look into the past, remind your audience that "computer" used to refer to a person whose profession was to compute things.

10. Why is it rude to wear a hat at the dinner table? Where did this custom come from?

I believe it also stems from the fact that back in the day hats were very tall and when sitting in groups like a theatre you could not see over them so it was customary for them to be removed. Personally i think its ridiculous that people now still follow these etiquettes well past them having served their purpose

12. Is it effective to force your young child to stay at the dinner table until they have finished eating their food?

So, let's see. You have no idea if the child likes the food. You have no idea if the child is full. But you want to make them stay at the table until they are finished. Do you eat food you do not like? I do not . Do you eat when you are full? You should not . And neither should your children. What you are teaching them is that their parent is a bully and that disordered eating is normal. You are teaching them they have absolutely no control over their lives at all, including what they eat, regardless of whether they like it. This is not a good lesson to teach your child. This is how you end up with children with eating disorders. Do not do this to your child

13. Is it wrong to feed your pet at the dinner table?

I do not think it's good manners to feed a pet at the table but I do not think it's the business of anyone other than your friend. If it distresses you I suggest you dine elsewhere

When Setting the Dinner Table, Which Is Proper?
I was always told: Fork on the left of the plate Knife on the right of the plate with the blade facing the plate Spoon to the right of the knife.1. What is the name of that movie where the girl rips off her shirt at the dinner table wile arguing with her dad?Yeah that's it. That's the one where she has some huge nipple rings on. Ouch! lol2. Dinner do's and donts...what are your traditions or rules at the dinner table?Every single day I eat dinner with my family only, but not breakfast or lunch b/c school and work for them. On weekends we have to eat everything together. When people are invited to an Egyptian dinner the hostess always puts so much food on your plate and you have to accept it. It's rude if you do not eat anything. Also, we are always fashionably late. Dinner isnt prepared as soon as you get there. Also, after every meal actually 20,000 times a day expect to drink tea lol. Usually when we eat together everyone talks. I love my family dinners ahahaha. Also, I love going to Egyptian parties b/c egyptians are so crazy lol. Theyre just like me haha and we laugh all the time. Also, the hostess makes sure that everyone is okay before she eats herself. And her and other women clean up together.3. Good conversation starters at a dinner table?Simple things like where do u work4. Why is it improper etiquette to put a purse on a dinner table?Just think about where you drag your purse(s) to. Plus, if everyone put their briefcases and purses and other carryalls on the table, there would not be any room for anything else. You have to think in a broader term, not just what suits you alone. I would never hang a purse on the chair because it's too easy for someone to carry it off without me noticing (and people do do that). You carry a purse small enough to set on your lap or hang on your knee under the table (not on the floor, it gets in the way on the floor and you do not ever want a server to trip on your purse hurling food on you and others). If your purse is too huge to keep in your lap, you have to seriously consider what in hell you are lugging around in that piece of luggage and downsize.5. Do I need to apologize to my girlfriend and her mom for throwing up at the dinner table?Yeah you should apologize, that is if you want to keep your girlfriend6. What are some benefits from eating family meals at the dinner table?My family does not often do this. =] We eat together, but usually in front of the TV because we eat late. (usually around 8:30 because my dad cooks dinner and he gets home around 7:30.) However, eating at a table is nice because it: Instigates conversation. Creates a close environment for people to bond. Gives you time to enjoy your family's company. Is one of the rare times when all of the family can be together. Helps people appreciate what families do for each other. Helps you learn how your family member's days were. Sorry, these are all I could come up with. I am sick, so my brain is not fully on. =[7. At what age did you move your toddler from a high chair to a booster seat at the dinner table?We did about 18 months. I think it can be done much sooner we just didnt see a point.

Where can I buy a Korean dinner table with a single burner inset and all accessories?I searched on Amazon but did not find out. Anyone can help this friend?9.

Would you say something if he picked his nose at dinner table?It depends on how well I knew him and what type of relationship I had with him. If I did say anything and I am thinking I probably would. I would do it when others were not present to hear. I would also not invite him back as this is not only extremely rude behavior on his part it is unsanitary and disgusting3. Why is it that I would rather punch babies than sit at a dinner table and listen to people eat?It could be that you are an egotist or just very self-centered. What about your annoying habits? We all have them. Tolerance is what you need. My ex-boyfriend complained to me about something with eating and the fork. He said that a friend of his from the north did that too. It did not bother me that he brought it up. It was his manner that really offended me and made me angry. It was the contemptuous tone. I wanted to walk up and leave. Rude. It was absolutely uncalled for. First, I did not realize I was doing that. Second, I would change. It's not a big deal. That's why I was and still am p'od. edit: You could always eat by yourself away from people. Is it noisy eaters that bother you? I think everyone is bothered with noisy eaters. My ex-bf was in a horrible mood the entire time of my visit. It's probably why it really hurt me. I just can not stand rudeness like that. It felt like a betrayal actually. edit: Thinking some more, if it's the noisy eaters or it's just a habit, you could ask the offender if they could alter their ways? Just be tactful. No need to be rude. Just make a request.4. How do you stop a dog from begging for food at the dinner table?Welcome to the world of poodles. They all do it.

Why is it rude to wear a hat at the dinner table? Where did this custom come from?Gee, that's the best question I've heard in 6 months!! It's an old English custom where hats are tipped, (or doffed) slightly lifting the hat off your forehead, when meeting a lady (remove your hat if you stop to talk), or to "say" to anyone, male or female - thank you, excuse me, hello, goodbye, you are welcome or how do you do. Tipping of the hat is a conventional gesture of politeness. This hat tipping custom has the same origin as military saluting, which came from the raising of medieval Knights face visors to show friendliness. Hats are worn less now, but at the turn of the 20th century, all adults wore hats whenever they left the house. It was a matter of good personal hygiene, since hats were a protection from industrial dirt. Hats are removed when inside, except for places that are akin to public streets, like lobbies, corridors, and crowded elevators (non-residential). In a public building (where there are no apartments) the elevator is considered a public area. You may choose to remove your hat in a public elevator, but in the presence of a lady your hat must be removed. A gentleman takes off his hat and holds it in his hand when a lady enters the elevator in any building that can be classified as a dwelling such as an apartment house or hotel. He puts it on again in the corridor. It's therefore become a mark of respect to take them off during a meal, funerals, church service, when you greet someone in the street, or any other occasion when you want to signify that you respect the person. That's where the term, "I take my hat off to you" originated. Thanks again for a really good question! I learnt something tonight. The website is very interesting and took me ages to find.5.

Do you have dinner at the dinner table, or use a TV tray?we have dinner at the table as it is better for your digestion and gives us a chance to talk to each other about the day. If my b/f is working and I am having dinner alone I sometimes sit at the coffee table instead, that's if I am just have toast for dinner but if it is a messy meal it is easier to sit at the table10. Do I need to apologize to my girlfriend and her mom for throwing up at the dinner table?that is disgusting. why the hell would you do that? you could have at least excused yourself and done it in the bathroom. where do you live? is this a normal type of behavior where you live? its not where i live. and yes you should apologize for your nastiness.

It was lunch time, we were having fried chicken and this lady was passing out papers for an after-school party club... thing. And so she gave us all one. Then after the lady left, Victoria (who arrived late) sat down next to us and asked, "Hey, what is that?" and then my friend Ingrid said, "It's for an after-school party." and then Victoria said, "Can I see it?" Ingrid said, "sure". Victoria took the paper WITHOUT WIPING HER HANDS OFF. It was disgusting! There was HUGE grease stains and tiny bits of chicken on the paper now. Victoria handed it back to Ingrid and Ingrid was like, "No, it's okay, you keep it." Victoria just shrugged, as if she did not know why Ingrid would not want it anymore. Then she just put it next to her tray and continued eating. I offered my paper to Ingrid and she said, " No, it's okay, Bre. Kristy already gave me hers." then Kristy said, "Yeah, I got to somewhere that day, anyway." This is all true, it actually happened!

You will be admired and respected for being true to yourself and for bringing honor to your parents raising of you.
Set the Perfect Italian Dinner Table the Silver Spoon Way | Food | Phaidon
Set the perfect Italian dinner table the Silver Spoon way The Silver Spoon Classic goes beyond recipes - it also tells you how to make your table fit for the most stylish guest Eating well in Italy requires a little more than just great food. "Italians take pride in setting their tables, even for informal or everyday meals," explains the text in The Silver Spoon Classic, our luxurious, new collection of the best recipes from the world's leading Italian cookbook. "Depending on the style of the dishes to be served, the table will be set with elegant or rustic plates, glasses, knives and forks, etc. "Many Italian families have complete sets of tableware, glasses, tablecloths and so on that they use for special occasions - these are often passed down through generations of the family," the book goes on to explain. "While in the past using a tablecloth was imperative even for an everyday meal, these days, the tablecloth is often substituted with tablemats. However, using a beautiful, possibly embroidered, white tablecloth will always mark a special occasion. "A dinner plate is always set on the table, with a fork to its left and a knife to its right. For a more informal setting, you could put both the fork and knife on one side of the plate. Even informal dining will use a glass for your wine and a glass for water and, if you are planning to serve more than one wine during the meal, you should add additional glasses. "In general, food will be brought to the table on serving dishes from the same dining service or set of plates that you are using for the place settings, but for more rustic meals, you can also bring the pots and pans you have used when cooking to the table, especially if these are casserole dishes, Dutch ovens, or terracotta dishes. "Pasta, rice, and soups are normally brought to the table in a serving bowl. If there is going to be a dessert, a small spoon will be set at the top of each place setting, above the dinner plate. To complete your table setting, add a basket of bread, salt and pepper, olive oil in a pourer or jar (never the bottle in which you bought it), and a bowl with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. "Even if you are planning to eat only a first course as a 'piatto unico', you would never put a bowl in which to serve pasta directly on the table, always placing it on top of the main dinner plate. The same is true of knives and forks and even if you are not planning to use a knife as well as a fork, you would always put both on the table at each place setting. "In general, as they are thought to display the food to its best advantage, the dishes used traditionally in Italy are white, perhaps with a simple colored rim, and you should use one design of china throughout the whole meal, from antipasti to dessert, not mixing and matching. And of course you should never mix and match designs of knives and forks or plates between the guests." Of course, the best laid dinner table will not impress your guests if the actual menu has not been assembled with a similar degree of care and attention. The Silver Spoon Classic advises that the menu must be properly balanced so that each dish can be enjoyed to its best effect. "Traditionally, an Italian meal had five courses," The Silver Spoon Classic reveals. These are: an antipasto; a first course (primo piatto), which could be pasta, rice, or a soup; a main course (secondo), which was based on meat, fish, or eggs and a side of vegetables (contorno); and fresh fruit; with a dessert (dolce) to finish. "Nowadays, an antipasto course is served before the first course only for special occasions such as Christmas, New Year's Eve, or Easter, or when serving a particularly formal meal. More frequently the antipasto will take the place of the first course or, when served in a larger portion, it can also become a main course. It is important to balance the richness of the different courses in your meal. If you are planning to serve a robust main course, you need to balance this with lighter choices for the other courses. In a harmonious menu, it is advisable not to repeat the same main ingredient in the different courses you serve and also not to mix the styles of cooking too much - for example, a rustic first course should not be followed by too sophisticated a main course. It is also becoming quite common to serve a "piatto unico" that could be selected from any of the different savory sections of the book, accompanied simply by steamed or raw vegetables and followed by fresh fruit or a dessert. It's also traditional to serve a variety of cheeses after the main course and before the dessert. Got that amici? For the accompanying recipes, further dining and cookery tips, and much, much more, order a copy of The Silver Spoon Classic here.Which Starbucks drink do you like better: soy chai latte or chocolate vivanno?Neither. I save my money for more inmportant things. Like, say, dinner

If the bans were not in the lease, he would have a hard time prevailing on the alcohol ban. But it goes without that illegal drugs are banned.
Why Is It Disrespectfull/ Rude to Wear a Hat at the Dinner Table?
I think people are finding it more and more difficult to justify this custom. I do not see it as a bad or good custom, but if "completing an outfit" and not "messing up one's hair to remove it" is good enough for women, it perhaps is good enough for men as well. After all, what use are baggy pants, showing half of one's azz and all their their stylish boxers, if you can not wear your cap backwards?.1. help? my dogs won't stop whining and begging for food when we eat at the dinner table?Crate them in your room, and close the door.

What should I do?? my 95 year old grandmother spits as she talks even at the dinner table should I avoid her?Amen to that Roofing... I would give anything to have any of my grandparents sitting next to me, drooling, spitting...does not matter. There are so many things I never got to ask them as they died when I was very young, and I missed out on their wisdom, experiences, humor....all the things that make us who we are. Talk to her, learn about your family history because when she is gone, and you are older and looking back....you will know you missed an opportunity to know who you are from someone who knows where you've been (speaking from a genealogical point of view) A little saliva wo not hurt you, it wipes off, a cold goes away.....regrets over opportunities lost stay with you forever.7. How do I deal with the empty feeling I have...can't even eat at dinner table?I would ask the doctor your using if they have a fertility counselor. Most of the Reproductive Associates have them in their practice. If you look under your insurance carrier they should be able to assist you with finding one.

Dinner-table description of theoretical computer science?We study the limits of computation. How quickly can you solve a certain computational problem?

But when you only have 2 minutes to tell someone about a whole field, some things get left out.9. Am I the only person who considers wearing a hat at dinner table rude? I see it all the time at restaurants.?It depends on where you are dining. At a bar or something it does not really matter, but in a restaurant I think it's a little odd to not take it off. Or especially if you are dining at someones house!10. Why are elbows not allowed on the dinner table?Keeps you from leaning over you plate and allows for more table space11. how do i get my dog to stop watching me eat at the dinner table without making him leave?Watching you is not bad, begging is. Stop feeding him cause hes soooooooooo cute or he will never stop begging. If you stop feeding him from the table or your plate UNTIL YOUR DONE he will tire of watching constantly. He will still likely stay close waiting for you to get done and to give him a taste after your finished but the begging will stop. If you do not want him doing that then do not give him anything off your plate after your done. It is a habit you help formed, figure out what is ok with you and work to that point. I have a service dog. My dog is not allowed to beg, in fact if food is dropped by her face when shes under a table she is absolutely not to touch it for any reason unless its setting her tail on fire. Most people do not have to go to this extreme but it is nice to leave food on a plate and it still be there when you get back from refilling your drink. The dog will learn the habits you reinforce. The dog is training you and it's working!

How To Build A Twin Platform BedWe have a guest that will be staying the night, a very messy guest room, and a twin mattress ... on the floor. I decided to get busy and Build A Twin Platform Bed with the thought that one of our kids could use it when they are off at college, renting a room off campus. Eventually, I would like to have a queen size bed in the guest room but this makes sense for now! This twin platform bed was pretty simple and inexpensive to build. It needed to be easy to disassemble so it could be hauled around easily and it needed to be inexpensive because ... this is not meant to be a family heirloom. Nope! It has a purpose to serve on a budget! This post contains affiliate links. When you purchase through an affiliate link, we receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Disclosure. Our twin size mattress dimensions are 37-1/2 x 73-1/2 x 11 and I built this bed to fit those dimensions. Adjust your cuts to accommodate your mattress size. Note: My cuts are 2-1/2 shorter than our mattress size. This is because the mattress partially sits on top of the 4 x 4 legs. if you choose not to use casters, adjust the cut of the legs. Our twin mattress has a hard bottom and needed less slats than our Naturepedic mattress did. How To Assemble The Twin Platform Bed This bed is actually pretty simple to build! Make your cuts, according to your mattress size, and sand each piece with 120 grit sand paper. With the Kreg Jig, drill three pocket holes in each end of your headboard and footboard panel. Pay attention to what side of the board you want to be visible and make the pocket holes on the opposite side. Next, attach the headboard and footboard panels to the legs with 2-1/2 pocket hole screws. I placed a 1 x 4 under each end of the panel so the panel would sit back a bit from the 4 x 4 leg instead of being flush. The top of the panel and the top of the legs are flush. The next picture will show what I mean! The headboard and footboard assembled. Pretty basic, right? Then, attach the bed rail hooks on each 4 x 4 leg. I attached mine 2-1/2 from the top and as close to the inside edge that I could, in order to leave room for the side rail. Oh my goodness! These are non-mortise bed rail hooks! I struggled with the mortise bed rail hooks I used on our King Size Farmhouse Bed so I was pretty stoked to find these bed rail hooks! Now it was time to attach the bed slat supports. To do this, I laid the 2 x 4 on the inside of the 2 x 10 side rail and placed my 2 x 2 on top so I would know where to attach the 2 x 4. We want the mattress to sit right on top of this platform bed. I used Kreg Clamps and 2-1/2 Deck Plus Screws to attach the bed slat supports. This part was a bit tricky. The bed rail hooks needed to be lined up just right so the bed rail would sit flush with the headboard and footboard. I laid the footboard and headboard on the ground with the hooks attached. Then, I had my husband hold the side rails up against it, where I wanted it to be, and marked the screw holes. I am glad I did it this way because the hooks sit back a bit on the bed rail in order to sit flush. I would not have known that if I had only measured the correct height. The bed rails were pretty easy to attach and it was all flush ... enough! I used Homemade Stain for my Twin Bed. After the bed was stained, I took it apart, laid the pieces on sawhorses, and finished each piece with a coat of wax. I then attached a caster wheel to each leg. After the wax was dry, I took the bed pieces into the guest room and reassembled it. This is where you would measure the inside dimension of your bed so you can cut your bed slats the proper width. I placed the bed slats and side rail blocks where they needed to go. Next, I attached each block to the side rail support by pre-drilling a hole and then used one self-sinking screw in each block. This was a bit tedious as I used my Kreg Clamp on each block to keep it from moving. We are happy with this simple Twin Platform Bed! It was easy and inexpensive to build and should be a good thing to have around when the kids say goodbye to dorm life and rent a room, when they are off at college. Of course, we are also quite happy that our guest will not have to sleep on a mattress, on the floor. How To Make Wood Stain With Common Household Products Fun DIY House Projects You Can Do Too!
Leesa's Sapira Mattress Has Springs but still Comes in a Box
Mattress-in-a-box companies, from Tuft & Needle to Casper, ship foam and latex mattresses to your door for under $900 for a queen size. Most offer a single type, with dimensions being the only thing you can choose from. Leesa is a member of that club, but today it's branching but with a new brand called Sapira. It's supposed to offer a more luxurious mattress that is a hybrid of springs and foam.The queen costs $1,475, $585 more than the 10-inch-thick, all-foam Leesa. It's an inch thicker, too, with a 1.5-inch top layer of high-density foam; a 1.5-inch layer of memory foam; and steel pocket springs in between two, 1-inch layers of stabilizing foam. Pocket springs are encased in their own cloth pouch. With traditional innerspring mattresses, the coils are tied together, so when you lie down, your weight gets transferred across the bed. That means that, in general, you'll be less likely to feel your partner tossing and turning with the pocket spring variety.Related:Nightingale smart home sleep system masks both indoor and outdoor noisesI tried the Sapira out for a couple of nights, and I found this to be very true. Pushing down on one side of the bed left the other side unaffected. I pressed the mattress down about six inches away from my sleeping cat, and he didn't stir.The overall experience of getting the Sapira is pretty similar to the Leesa one. It arrives at your door all boxed up and compressed, and you slice through a few layers of plastic to let it plump up. You'll get 100 days to try out the mattress, and the company will pick it up if you decide not to keep it within that time frame.The Sapira is definitely a dense mattress. The full-size mattress weighs in at 98 pounds, according to the shipping label. Even though it's only an added inch, the Sapira seems thicker than the Leesa. The top layer of foam is certainly soft, but overall the mattress feels pretty firm.Other brands like Helix and Luma have been offering these "hybrid" foam and spring mattresses for a while, and by offering it as a separate, more luxury-minded brand, Leesa can offer another option beyond its single-type-of-firmness mattress.
My Minimalist Wardrobe
Minimalism is very important to me, and not just because of the simplicity of it all. It has helped me distance myself from the world of social conformity, build better relationships, and lessen my addiction to social media. I spend more time getting my work done and less time worrying about whether or not I've got my hands on this season's mom jeans. For those of you who are not really sure what minimalism is beyond owning less things, let me explain. Minimalism goes far past "Less is more." It's a way of limiting yourself to the things that actually provide use, are needed, and improve your life. By owning only what we need, we are abandoning the consumerism our society has adopted and putting that energy toward the things that truly matter. Our family, friends, career, education, and goals become more important than the stuff we've gathered over the years. To cleanse a space is to cleanse a mind.I desire to keep my space simple and clean, yet I want it to be filled with art and nice clothing. I am not a fan of the "plain white button down as a daily outfit" look. I want some variety, but with a limitation on the amount. Here is how I do it.When I began, I easily had 200 pieces of clothing. When I say "pieces of clothing," I include shirts, pants, coats, dresses, scarves, shoes, and bags or purses. One day when I was hanging up clothes, my closet made a very unfriendly creaking sound, and as soon as I turned to investigate, the entire rack was coming off the wall. It was time to let go.As I started getting rid of things, I realized how little I actually wore any of the clothes I owned. I would rotate the same ten tops and three jeans and I only wore one pair of shoes among the eleven pairs I owned. And on top of the massive amount of clothing in my closet, I had a 6-drawer dresser each full of the clothes I never wore. I owned at least five bags, but I could not give you the actual amount because I only ever carried one and the rest meant nothing to me.I follow the general rule that if it does not provide meaning or use in my life, get rid of it. I've been able to follow this… mostly. I still have a hard time getting rid of clothing I do not even want if it still has some use left. I also feel the overwhelming urge to trash everything until I only own two shirts, one pair of pants, and a pair of shoes. Unfortunately, this is not realistic for someone who enjoys a variety and would not want to be caught dead wearing the same thing two days in a row. So, I've gone down to the absolute basics for my own personal style. The climate in my area gets both very hot and very cold, so I have to have a decent amount of clothes for each season. Many days, it starts off cold in the morning and is hot by midday, so I must have clothing that's good for layering. I decided that I had to have at least one outfit for interviews and professional occasions as well as one dress for formal family events. For the most part, deciding what I needed was easy. But the most difficult decisions lied with choosing which items to keep and which to toss out. Every once in a while I make a log of all the clothing I own, track the newest additions as well as the donations, and make sure I am limiting myself to a decent amount of clothing, not going overboard in either direction. Here's what my minimalist closet looks like:Tops: Two flannel shirts, three sweaters, one long-sleeve top, three t-shirts, one blouse, and one gray tank top. Total=11 items.Bottoms: one pair of high-rise jeans, one pair low-rise, one pair of leggings. Total=3 items. Coats: One petticoat, one denim jacket, one blazer, one raincoat, two summer jackets, one work-out jacket. Total=7 items.Shoes: One pair of work shoes, one pair oxfords, two pairs of sneakers, one pair of sandals, one pair of boots. Total=6 items.Dresses: One t-shirt dress, one formal dress, one summer dress. Total=3 items. Accessories: 3 winter scarves, one purse, one book bag. Total=5 items.Overall closet total=35 items.This closet suits me well a good 98% of the time. I find myself occasionally worried about what to wear because I do allow myself to have more options than I probably should. But like I said, I am young! I like options! I like colors! It's okay to be a minimalist and not want stark white pressed shirts only! Color is good. Color is happy. Options are okay.And that's my minimalist wardrobe! My journey began in the beginning of February 2017 and this is where I've gotten in the last year. Much of my inspiration has drawn from the one and only duo The Minimalists. If you have not seen their documentary on Netflix, give it a watch, and you might find it as life changing as I did!Marnie is an LGBTQ poet and storyteller from North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
