    I've been close enough the edge to know how stressful life can be. I've had to tell my son he couldn't go on a field trip with the other kids because we couldn't afford it. I've had to accept...

    Maybe he does, but only if he has actually experienced poverty. I don't believe anyone who has never walked in the shoes of the poor/working poor can really understand what it's like and how...

    This is a great example of emotional clutter. One of the selfish reasons that I have tried my entire life to never lie or to put myself in a position in which I may have to lie is because I'm afraid...

    Cool!

    One interesting personal factoid. As you may know, we lost our dog of 10 years last week. She was a fabulous dog, but her one "character flaw" was that she would wake me up every night and...

    I'm not saying I'm not planning. That's a big reason we bought this little house in Vermont. We can easily retire there, and if we find we like it, we most likely will pull up stakes in NJ within a...

    I'm not a foodie by a long shot, but my DH is. There isn't a food blogger he doesn't know about, nor a food network show he hasn't seen. Next to the Bible on our living room bookshelf is a 40 year...

    First of all, I don't think I've ever ordered fries in a nice restaurant. But I also think the idea of cutting a fry with a knife is a little weird. I would eat small shoestring fries with a fork,...

    Wow, I think sixties/early 70s is way too early for any normal, healthy adult to consider group housing! Sorry, but I'm going to be 66 in a couple of months and I'm in no way ready for a group...

    I finally saw the film A Man Called Ove which is relevant here. Such a sweet movie. It really spoke to how neighbors simply reaching out can make a huge difference in our lives.

    My great-aunt died at 92, shortly after the death of her last friend. She certainly had me and my mother, so she wasn't totally alone, but she was an hour away from us and probably knew we also had...

    Speaking of the Sermon on the Mount, I'm actually currently reading Eknath Easwaran's commentary on the Beatitudes. It's a fantastic book.

    These are good common sense rules.

    There are others that signal good manners even though one might ask why. Such as, I remember one time when I was in college I went out to eat with Jessica and...

    I was following a FB thread where someone posted that a good solution to this current crisis is to arm all teachers. What??? Never mind that most teachers will never have the full training required...

    Another great thing about this forum is that all demographics participate and get along (for the most part). We have such a broad continuum across income & means, work experiences, political...

    +1 on your response to LDAHL, too.

    I asked my DH if he considered himself more of an American, or a Christian. He said American. I personally identify more as a Christian, mainly because I...

    I don't think Chicken lady is being rude, but in my neck of the woods a lot of people have "lawn care" in their budget just as they would "house cleaner" or even "gas & electric." In my suburbs, I...

    Cool article. I'll watch the video after a phone call I have in a few minutes.

    I wonder if the steps were redone with online, digitized tools if it could be a little more current? I still have graph paper, but I'd love some Excel-type version. I could do it myself of course,...
