    Case #1: I did a kitchen re-face once. I had doors and drawer fronts removed and replaced, and I also asked them to remove a set of very unfunctional drawers and turn it into a pull-out garbage...

    Yeah, I agree with you on all counts. I'm very similar. I guess I imagine cohousing in an environment where you have your own home but share some things in common like gardens or community halls as...

    Gee.. again, I'm interested in how doubtful people are that human beings can co-exist! :). I imagine that decision-making would be made the same way that town decisions are made, or HOA decisions...

    Yeah, my Scots heritage grew a little, but my Irish heritage grew a lot: I'm now up to 61% Irish and, like you, 32% Scottish, with the rest 5% European Jew and 2% Norwegian. So now we have two corned...

    I'm with bae. It's interesting to see how repulsive the idea of communal living is to people. There is some set of perceptions at play--I'm not sure what, in fact, I'm interested in hearing from both...

    Yes, certainly overpopulation is another root cause. I do think that if everyone lived simply, overpopulation wouldn't be as much of an issue. But since we have to expend huge amount of resources per...

    RIP Duke of Edinburgh

    I feel it's the beginning of the end of an era. Prince Philip has been in the background of my entire life. My heart goes out to Queen Elizabeth--she and Prince Philip were comrades in arms through a...

    I love my car. I enjoy driving it, and I love the story behind it--the story of how, during one of the best years of my life, I was driving home from watching my DH march with his Pipe and Drum band...
