    We are planning a quiet weekend for the Fourth -- quieter than usual because our new-to-us dog apparently is not a fan of fireworks and firecrackers. Despite gorgeous weather, the windows are closed...

    Yuk. Bad way to end a fun vacation! At least you have some time to relive the memories as you recuperate -- and you do have some time you can take from work. Heal fast!

    I just retired my 8-year-old MacBook Pro from daily personal use; it will become a music server on the network because it still works but the various bits have worn enough that more carrying around...

    I think it depends on how well air circulates in your house. In my mom's place, we tend to keep the basement shut off from the rest of the house because it's used only for storage and laundry. We do...

    We ended up giving away our last printer because it was in excellent shape but so old that none of the computers in the house (Mac or Windows) would speak with it anymore. I bought a new Canon...

    We've been using the A/C sparingly; sometimes just for a few hours at a time to cool things down. Most nights it's still in the upper 50s or low 60s, so opening doors and windows first thing in the...

    Without a link to the article in question, I have to question the article. Without doubt, boiling water releases some of the air/oxygen trapped in the water, so boiled water has less oxygen in it...

    I'm starting to think that "frugal" should be redefined a bit. Maybe we'd have a few more frugals to report.
