As much as I love the look of them, I have never found them comfortable - even the adjustable variations. If you go with traditional ones, they are really HEAVY too.

And on the other hand...

I discovered this while wandering online today. The property is in my very rural county. Anyone have a spare $23 million?!

It’s not just California real estate that’s going crazy.

I wear 7- 7 1/2 wide shoes. My DD1 introduced me to Feetures, and I haven’t looked back.

For some people, tinnitus CAN be a big deal as it interferes with life before they developed it or how “loud” it is.

My tinnitus is part of my Ménière’s disease. At first, it was so very...

Sewing machine

These older machines are sewing repairmen’s idea of heaven. They can be repaired far more easily than many newer mid-range machines that have so many plastic components.
