    This older gentleman sounds a lot like my grandfather in his final years. He had always been very active, but after he turned 90, he slowed down. A lot.

    I'd go to visit, and he'd just nod off...

    It's just a personal theory, but the controlling behavior? Strikes me as what you do when you are afraid of something. You tie it down, you box it up, you keep it from getting any advantage over you....

    I saw the season where they built the house. It is metal, I think, but it is *two* houses, of the same design, built side by side, by the family, at least in part. They changed a lot of the design of...

    Okay, I'll admit I watched the early specials that they did and a season or two of the show at the beginning.

    I wanted to dislike them very much.

    One thing to remember about food stamps is that they are designed to *supplement* people's food budget, not be their entire food budget. The official name of the program is SNAP--Supplemental...

    I wouldn't ask what was reasonable. I'd look at my budget and DD's timeline for the wedding and figure out how much I *could* give and how much I *want* to give.

    Worst case senario, bringing the two Ebola patients here would allow their families to get a chance to say good-bye, if their conditions worsen and they die. I doubt the families would be able to...

    See, a bistro type dining establishment is not where I want to show up in cycling clothes, hot and sweaty from riding my bike. I guess that's why I thought a bistro as the weekly destination was odd.

    Perhaps not, but I'd be a lot more enthusiastic about a bike ride if there were ice cream at the end of it. Bistro dinners? Bah. Ice cream? Yeah!

    I like the idea of a women's bike group.

    But I'd like to see:

    1. Instead of men checking tires, etc., someone teaching the women to do this on their own. And how to make basic repairs, fix a...

    When you check the reviews, note the number of negative and positive reviews. There's no such thing as perfect. Someone will always dislike something. But if something has 1,000 positive reviews and...

    I don't think this is necessarily a man/woman thing. I think some people just like being alone more than other people.

    In your case, maybe some sort of compromise is possible. Half the time, he...

    Who exactly is this "average" American woman?

    And as someone who would be a patient, that scares me. What if someone made a mistake?

    Dishwashers vary a bit in size and in how the racks are configured. I'd ask your friend what size would work for him, and go from there.
