assisted living

DH's mom has been in assisted living for almost 8 years now, and it was the best decision that he and his siblings made. Not only is his mom...

I receive several different glossy "luxury" magazines that I never subscribed to. They have my name and address on it. Even though some of the magazines show a price of $10+ on the cover, I know that...

MAsped, I think (and hope) that it will be over by the time you fly to Japan. When flying, it is of course harder to avoid close contact with people who have respiratory illnesses (coughing,...

empty units

In my city there are so many empty luxury units (houses and condos), that some city officials have called for a "vacancy tax" like Vancouver, BC, has. NYC and LA have called for one as well.

Bluelining: piggybacking on expensive zip codes

I had not heard of the term until I read the article in The Atlantic. It is about the transfiguration of...neighborhoods with a deluge of investment aimed at a wealthier class.

It is about the...

I think community college is a great place for those students who want to go into a trade, as well as for those who either need...

amiga, nobody is accusing you of making it up. I understand that you posted it in fun. I don't think you need to defend yourself by posting the long list of criteria that this kid Sam Stebbins has...

booking sites

I book directly with the hotel or through, depending on the situation. If it is a small hotel, it is usually better to book directly, as they work on a small profit margin and actually...

travel shoes

I do the same. They live in my suitcase, so when it is time to travel, they are already in there, wrapped in plastic bags. They are light weight. I use them in the hotel shower as well as walking...

I looked up average income, and they range from $59K to $200K. The ones I know are incorporated towns. The one closest to me has a much lower income than others on the list. That's why I'm wondering...

Juliet, your trip sounds wonderful! I haven't done the Yangtze cruise, but some friends have, and they loved it.

As a PP said, the parents may have dropped the ball. Most important dance class performances are scheduled as far as three months ahead. The 11-year old is a helpless bystander who is caught up in a...
