    That plastic tumbler I mentioned in the "But it still works" thread? Turns out there is something that can kill it: Cascade Action Pods.

    In an effort to be frugal, DW took the dishwasher pods...

    I would think a minimalist would have jumped on a smartphone for the so many things it can replace (calendar, alarm clock, etc.)! But I also can understand not wanting the expense or complication of...

    Maybe so. But what I really think knocks you out of normtown is rigidity.

    Atheist? Fine. Do you completely excise from any chance in your life even the lightly spiritual? The "CE Christian",...

    I don't think so. The call rang in using a number I already have for the company, so they showed up as such when the phone rang. And, when I pressed them on it, they had the correct information for...

    I was 42 when I was divorced and more popular with women than I ever was in my teens or 20s -- and it's not because I made oodles of money or looked any more like George Clooney.

    Some of it was...

    I still use a plastic tumbler I got in college that must have contained some flavor of soda pop. University name and mascot printed on it and everything, in the team's color. That was 40+ years ago...

    I think I found mine at CVS. But a natural-foods store might have it, too, if you haven't tried one of those.

    You might want to do that the other way around: have the seller pay for the paint and pick your own workers. It's likely workers you choose will cost more, but the seller has zero incentive to hire...

    I've never quite figured out what LinkedIn is supposed to be, and I'm not sure they have either.

    I've half-jokingly referred to it as "Facebook for working people" as they've added "Likes" and...

    Maybe not. The dishwasher uses between 3.5 and 10 gallons of water per run (depending on the model and cycle run) while the washing machine will fill with at least 15-30 gallons of water every time...

    At my CU, family members can join regardless of whatever original criteria qualified you for the CU. DW did that when we got married. K might be able to do that, too, though I can understand not...

    Just got a call from our mail-order prescription provider, the one we've been using for 2-3 years now without much of a hitch. At least they had the good sense to call using their known outgoing...

    As far as I've seen, most jeans are still all-cotton. I mess up all fabrics equally. :)

    Well, a representation of a coin. It's a convenient unit of measure, much as paper currency at one time represented an amount of gold. And one Bitcoin is worth almost $US 12,400 today. That's one...

    Particularly good advice for UL. I did not run into that situation -- more likely my girlfriends were happy being done with diapers and tantrums. But if one is strongly disinterested in more kids,...

    When I divorced at 42 I knew if I were in a long-term romantic relationship again, it likely would be with someone who had kids. That wasn't a problem for me beyond the logistics of figuring out...

    I grew up in a suburb of Noo Yawk City. Moving out to the Midwest for college was a huge culture shock as almost all of the (extended) family lived in The Empire State. But once i got over the...
