Re: Is it okay to recline your airline seat?

It's the domino effect. I generally don't recline my seat, but if the person in front of me does ... I kind of have to, out of self-defense, because otherwise, squished, and, no, I am not noble enough to take one for the team to accomodate the guy ahead of me and/or the guy behind me. I don't resent...

Re: Parenting question.

I think my first instinct is to say that you lose the battle for tolerance the second you start phrasing things in terms of an objective "right" and "wrong." Keep it subjective with "this is what *we* believe" while leaving the door open for other people to hew to what'...

Re: Getting vintage 10k gold ring re-polished in a satin fin

Getting a satin finish shouldn't be a problem. I would guess a jeweler wouldn't do it for free, but I doubt it would be expensive - less than $50, I'd bet. No, it wouldn't cause any harm. I hope you post pics - we love vintage pieces around here!

Daussi diamonds have their fans and their detractors. Kenny 's humor about LED implants aside, if the light performance is bothering you, there are ways to improve the look somewhat ...

Re: Am I crazy to consider this OEC?

Put another vote in the "live it to pieces, would totally wear it as a RHR" column. To me, that doesn't look like an ering, so I wouldn't see it as an alternative to that lovely solitaire of yours ... but I see that as a nice way to introduce variety and not a drawback.
