Now that I know

What a capsule wardrobe is, I realize I may inadvertently have just that.
More than half the year, I wear capris or shorts in two basic colors, mushroom or gray. Lots of the brand I like in my...

Test scores

We are teaching children that their value consists of what they score on a test, many of which are very poorly written. It is ridiculous and wrong that teachers are shamed when their students don't...

Thank you to all

Who responded. :) Unfortunately, my friend decided to cancel her medical appointments in my area. She sent me a one line email today to that effect. I feel bad because I know she needs medical...

Choco chip cookies

I like them any way I can get them. Either tough and chewy or snappy and crispy. I make them with whole wheat flour as I feel that way they have more texture. A bit healthier, too. I use the Toll...

She wants to bring the young dog with her because he is her new favorite. She has the attitude of "boys will be boys" and is very tolerant of his "marking his territory." Her older female dog would...

Difficult situation

I have a good friend who is coming to my area for serious medical treatment. She wants to bring her dog with her. We have both stayed with our dogs (she has two, I have one) numerous times at each...

My first house was a long remodeling process. When I bought it (for the views and acreage), it was a one room shell, with no heat or air, and an outhouse for a bathroom. I figured if my ancestors...

Crazy co-worker

Your colleague wants control but no responsibility. I'm sorry you are dealing with someone who is NOT entirely rational.

I rode in my sister-in-law's 2001 V-6 AWD Highlander, and I was amazed at how well that vehicle has stood the test of time. SIL takes it everywhere and often drives it on very rough roads, usually...

My sincere condolences

It's so hard to say goodbye, and it never gets any easier. Our pets are true innocents who give us so much and ask so little. I'm sure your little terrier knew she was loved all the way to the end....
