I'm not familiar with Barkeeper's Friend, but I'll have to give it a try. In the past I've have some success with a paste made from baking soda and water, but it might not work in every situation.

When DW and I bought new cars in the 1980s and 1990s, we'd go to the dealer, sit down with the salesperson, and custom order the one we wanted. We'd have it 4-6 weeks later, and yes, color was a big...

I agree with others who have posted--it's inexcusable that you have to go through this.

Barrel racing

You mentioned barrel racing, and to be honest, I wasn't familiar with it. I just looked it up, and it sounds like an activity that requires a lot of skill. Good for your granddaughter to be...

I agree with everyone who suggested that school might be the problem. During our teaching careers, most of us probably had classes we really enjoyed. The kids were respectful and considerate, and...

It might be worth getting opinions from other dentists. There could be other ways to go about this that will be effective and less expensive. You could also check with oral surgeons and...

I haven't seen many Tarzan movies, but saw one in the early 1980s. I think it was Tarzan the Ape Man with Bo Derek and Richard Harris. Terrible movie.

I'm also not a big Adam Sandler fan, and...

Amiga13, your comment about age 47 almost described me exactly. For me, it was ages 45 to 48. I've commented about this before; those were the years my school district was going through major...

Thanks for sharing. That reminds me of another bad teacher joke I heard about fifty years ago.

When I was growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, eight to ten years and/or 100,000 miles seemed to be upper limits. Rusting was a major issue. Buying a used car with 80,000 miles was considered to be...

I had a principal about 25 years ago who would say "on yesterday" and "on tomorrow." She was never wrong about anything, so I kept my mouth shut.

I think moms, but sometimes dads too, just want to feel needed. It can be hard for them when the youngest starts to show some independence. A hard reality sets in that some parents can't face--I (or...

First cell phone?

I think this will be a fun question. It seems as if cell phones never leave the hands of some people.
