    Nextdoor is a horrible creation. Not that Facebook neighborhood groups are much better (well, some are more moderated than others and, thus, more civil). But Nextdoor attracts the Gladys Kravitzes of...

    We didn't get anything back from our car insurance for COVID-19, so I suppose anyone who has is doing okay.

    I'd be interested. But between the high percentages of false positives and/or false negatives on some brands/varieties of the test, I would not have confidence in the results. I don't know if whoever...

    DW went to the dentist last week for some work she needs done before other work and before we (likely) lose better dental insurance this autumn. She was impressed with the care they took. She was the...

    I think it would be easier for DW and me. Not easy, but easier. We remarried at 50 after years of living on our own. We realize that, marrying as late as we did, it's almost certain one of us will be...

    We're staying here. We don't know anyone else who's planning to move away.

    First, we're city folk, not country folk. Second, there are positives (for us, anyway) in the form of a more diverse...
