Re: Best Purchase of 2014

I hate to think of it as a *purchase* ... but I guess it would meet the technical definition: OUR TWO NEW DOGS! For better & worse, 2014 has been Year Of The Dog for us. We lost our beloved 12-year old princess pup in February. Adopted a new male puppy in May. And just welcomed a 2 year old fema...

Re: Don't send your daughters to The Rape School, UVA

And did you see the story out of OHIO about a women's knitting club (known as the local feminists) who had to step in to advocate for three high school girls who'd REPORTED their rapes but were being severely harrassed by fellow students? This behavior starts before college ... but UVA should be ASH...

Re: How much SHOULD this house cost?

WHAT HAPPENED TO NORTH CAROLINA???????? (Did you ever visit & just not dig it?)

I think that house would cost about $375-425K near me depending on side of the river. And it *should* be free (for me.)

Re: Is The Time Change Deadly?

I think *most* medications give you enough leeway that an hour either way won't make a difference (and I'm on blood thinners, so I've had reason to ask my doctors about this in detail). But I'm betting the time change still puts some stress on the system ... circadian rhythm is nothing to mess arou...

I wholeheartedly disagree that this is about *cost*.

Re: Cost of e-ring inversely related to success of marriage?

Interesting theory. I'd guess it's generational to some extent also. In that lower costs were during a time when divorce was more rare?
