Mail Call for 12/25



Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line.

Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call during the week. The Mail Call number is 301-791-6236.

You are welcome to leave a recorded message on any subject, but some calls will be screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:




"I got a letter, too, that says you won a million dollars if you call this phone number. I see another woman put something in Dec. 20 about that the person doesn't know how to read their mail. Mine said the same thing as the other person. There's so many of them out there that you can win money and everything and they're wrong. So the woman who put in the one for Dec. 20, she should get her story straight before she starts downing people. Maybe the next time she talks to Mail Call, she should say that she's sorry."

"I agree with the person who said that the 3-year-old should be home with her mother. Too many of our children are dumped off with strangers. My 3-year-old son is home with me all day, as were his two brothers. And don't say you have to work. I am a licensed day-care provider and I earn $500 a week staying home with my children. When my day-care parents drop off their kids, they know their children are well cared for and loved. If you have to work, at least take your kids to someone who cares about them."




"'Days of Our Lives' fans, does anyone know what happened to Stephano's plan with Hattie? She was a Marlena lookalike. She had plastic surgery. She was gonna take over Marlena's life. When the soap opera network moved Stephano to another show, Hattie's story line disappeared, but they didn't write anything into the story about her. Just never saw her again. I did miss a few episodes. Does anyone happen to know what happened to her? Please. Please, let me know. Thanks, a soulmate in the 'Days of Our Lives.'"




This is to the person who wanted to know how to boil eggs without cracking them open. The trick is to bring them to a boil, let them boil for two minutes and when your water's boiling, turn it off and put a lid over it and let them steam. You'll have a more tender egg, plus you won't have any cracked shells."




"I would like to know how to use white chocolate and dark chocolate bars in making cookies or baking. I have several bars and I don't know how to use them. You can reach me at 301-739-5756. Thank you for your help."




"I'm just calling in response to the person who called in about ABATE delivering gifts to the San Mar girls, and also taking food to the Adventist House. I also know they fed close to 100 homeless people. This seems to be quite a group that does a lot for people who are in need. I think they need more publicity. Thank you and Merry Christmas."




"I am Nicky, the newspaper carrier in Cedar Lawn. But first, I'd like to make it clear I did not call in the article about me in Mail Call a couple of days ago. Whoever did, I appreciate it, but also I'd like to use this way to thank all my customers in the Cedar Lawn area. They all have been so good and helpful to me over the years. And if my health holds up, I'd like to continue for a little while yet. Thanks again. Merry Christmas. Blessed New Year. May the Lord be good to you."




"Here's to the person who wants to know how to boil eggs. Take a safety pin and punch a small hole in the end of each egg. Put the eggs in cold water and cover with at least an inch of water. Bring water to a boil, let it boil for five minutes, then turn off the heat and let it set for 15 minutes. Change water to cold water and let set for another 20 minutes. This make them peel easy and you have perfect eggs."




"I have a complaint about people parking in front of my house to pick up their kids at Salem Avenue Elementary School. What they do, they hit the curb. They make U-turns, and sometimes come up across the curb into the grass area between the curb and the sidewalk, tearing this up. Trucks, cars - they have total disregard for the people's property, plus the city property. This is on both sides of the street. I wonder if anything could be done to hold these people responsible for tearing up the curb and the grass areas that the homeowners and the city have to maintain. Thank you."




"Yes, I'm calling in regards to the union workers, the city workers, that were protesting during the carrying of the Olympic torch. While I do respect you for the job that you do and for your freedom to do such a march, I still think it was very disrespectful to do that during the carrying of the torch. That was a slap in the face to our athletes and our country. If you wanted exposure, you could have done it on another day."
