I have never liked going to the gym and working out with machines or weights or the...

I grew up in Europe. My mother would buy meat, including bacon, from the butcher shop. She saved all the grease in a coffee can until it was full, and I would take it back to the butcher. I have no...

customer service

I can't remember the last time I had rude customer service. Then again, I rarely call because I hate talking on the phone because of my hearing, and let DH do it. My last customer service call was...

different personality

I met Garrison Keillor perhaps 25 years ago at a conference. He used to have a program called Prairie Home Companion on PBS. I had always admired him for his story telling and imagined him as a kind...

Thanks, Risa and PoohBear! I learned English as a second language, and British English at that. All those rules were drilled into me, and I can’t help feeling critical when native speakers say things...

virtual learning

Earlier this year when schools closed, my grandkids' schools had haphazard online learning because there was not much guidance or tech help for teachers. DD asked me to help with my younger DGD's...

As other PPs have suggested, make a witness report. There wasn't much you could have done about the lady in the red van, so don't let it get you down. Others obviously called in immediately, as the...

For your information, for $50 more you could have gotten a lifetime NP Senior Pass. The $80 pass will let you into any of the National Parks and Monuments for the rest of your life. I was lucky to...

totaled truck

There are people who will tow your truck away and even pay cash for it. You can also donate it. Your insurance company may have some suggestions.

sour grapes

My mom used to make granita with sour fruit. She would blend them and mix with simple sugar, and then freeze it. Every half hour or so she'd stir it with a fork to break up the ice. After 4 or 5...

I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly, but in Spanish, the vowel I is pronounced as EE, the A as ah (as in father). All Romantic and most Germanic languages have the same pronunciation...

Could it be kudzu? If so, I'd rip it out. It is a notorious weed that takes over everything.

flu shot

I received a notice from Kaiser Permanente that flu shots will be available starting in September.

That's how it has always been with flu shots. They reduce the risk by between 40-60%. Better...

I agree that it's unfair to single out the hair salons. Both bars and hair/nail salons have been the biggest culprits in Covid outbreaks.

Here in San Diego bars can only operate if customers sit...

mask infection

I hope the cream works for him. The problem with many masks is that they tend to get wet the longer they are worn. Is it possible for him to change masks every few hours? That would require having 4...

kid masks

If you sew you can make a kid mask yourself. I have a great pattern. I recently made several for my 9-year old granddaughter, and they fit perfectly. You can modify the pattern for your 5 year old by...

air conditioning

We don't have A/C and don't need it. Ocean breezes are enough to cool us, and when it does get warmer (75º-77ºF), it is primarily dry heat. We also have at the most 1-2 weeks of higher humidity and...

I wonder about liability issues when hiring someone to be with children. I can see why privileged parents would hire teachers, as they have been vetted.

I frankly worry more about the students in...
