I think everything has become far too disposable. I really wish that we would go back to the way things were before —- when things were made to last, and one-time use items were not the norm. I hate...

Gift Exchange for Women

I’m not familiar with a yankee swap. Are there any guidelines? Is the gift supposed to be holiday-themed?

New Kitten Advice

Thank you for taking in that kitty-baby.

1) She should know what to do as far as the litter box; it’s instinctive.
