I am guessing that most schools are going to continue with an online option at least until a vaccine has been approved for children and all adults who want a vaccine can get one.

Even then,...

1. Do you like milkshakes? Yes, but I can't have them anymore.
2. Do you like dogs, cats, (or both/neither) as pets? I like both dogs and cats and have very much enjoyed owning dogs in the past. ...

I'm a leave it out person, partly because I lack storage in my kitchen and partly because it's convenient to leave things out if I use them every day. But I do tend toward organized, sometimes...

Good luck. One of my most bitter realizations when I became a teacher (33 years ago) is that some people are drawn to teaching because they never matured beyond middle school/high school "mean girl"...

My understanding is that, even among people who have a reaction, they are usually only out of commission for a day or so. If your sister has a week-long window in which she can pick up her puppy,...

It does seem as though it might have been a good idea to stagger vaccinations for the caregivers. Maybe they have a plan in place for how to cover shifts if some of them have to go home or can't...

Personally, I've always thought Pat Sajak's hostility toward contestants was thinly veiled. In this case I guess he just let it slip out into the open. I don't think it's the first time he's done...

I second the recommendation of some mindfulness activities. Usually it's my brain that's tired at the end of a work day, although my back is often tired, too. Something as simple as a sun salutation...

Yep, I'm suffering from vaccine envy. We are told that teachers are eligible as of March 1 but, somehow, one local public school obtained enough vaccine for their teachers two weeks ago and my...

Well, when you're doing yoga you really shouldn't attempt anything that's going to be seriously uncomfortable anyway. You arrive at flexibility gradually and if you try to rush it you end up with an...

I don't understand, either, why it isn't the same for everyone.

I've wondered whether the idea behind debit cards might be to encourage people to spend it right away rather than putting it in the...

Natural gas

My furnace runs on natural gas. Everything else is electric. My natural gas bill rarely goes over $75.00/month, even during the pandemic when I've been at home 5 days/week. Over a year's time, it...

I like The Weeknd, even if I am over 60. As a vocalist, I appreciate that the guy can really sing. I think, in general, a Super Bowl audience is more about the spectacle than the actual music and,...
