Don't get involved and try not to judge. (That would be hard for me, too.) Sometimes in these emotional confrontations what is heard isn't exactly what was said. Hopefully this confrontation is...

A vague answer is fine. I always answer something like "nothing much" or "not sure yet." The truth is, most people don't really care anyway; they're just making conversation.

I agree that it's electronics/technology - and this impacts our world in a lot of different ways.

Yes, many kids are addicted to technology these days. And I do, seriously, mean addicted. If...

1. How long does it take for you to go from “school mode” to “summer mode”? Usually 2-3 days.
2. What is your favorite thing about summer?

Two nights!!

Is this true labor or are they Braxton Hicks contractions? Either way, it's no fun so, definitely, prayers for a speedy delivery soon.

I'm not even surprised.

It's shocking how difficult it is to avoid glyphosate and other carcinogens in the American food supply. The only way is to cook from scratch and buy organic and non-GMO as much as your budget and...

It depends on how far I'm going and whether I want to carry anything else. If I'm walking (not hiking) and don't need any kind of backpack, I have a metal bottle with a carabiner. I loop a bandana...

What have we learned?

Evidently, nothing. And the scariest thing is that, while they are tragic and terrifying, mass shooting represent only a very small percentage of people killed by guns in this country every year. ...

Yeah, I wouldn't appreciate that very much.

For what it's worth, black widow spiders are actually not very aggressive even though they're venomous. Most of the time, they're trying as hard to get away from you as you are from them. I would...

I rarely use AC.

If you don't have to work in it, it's quite possible to acclimatize to warmer temperatures so you don't feel the heat as much. I am usually not aware of being uncomfortable unless the temperature in...

I second the suggestion of a new dentist.

I agree that a crown shouldn't just break off. What's breaking? If it's your actual tooth, then maybe a different option than a crown is in order. If it's the crown or the adhesive securing the...

I've always had a budget.

I guess I lived close to the poverty line long enough that it just became a habit. I've always just subtracted my fixed expenses from my take-home pay and figured how much I had left for variable...

I just finished The Witch Elm by Tana French. It was rather different from other Tana French novels I've read but I liked it. I just started The Witch of Belladonna Bay by Suzanne Palmieri.

Maybe you'd like lavender dryer bags. I still use unscented detergent but I add lavender dryer bags when I'm drying sheets and towels. The scent isn't overpowering and it's healthier for you, too. ...

I've not watched it but I think I'm going to have sit down and binge watch it until I'm caught up. I thought the novel was brilliant, but I love everything Margaret Atwood writes.

I completely understand.

I'm a saver, not a spender, and I'm always grateful for that when I see other people take serious financial hits with inadequate savings.

BUT, there is actual research that shows that, while money...

Did the peeing and pooping outside the box coincide with replacing the carpet? It's not unusual for cats to start peeing around after new floor coverings are installed. They can smell the...
