    Ahem.

    A few years ago, I dated a guy whose ex-fiance had painted his bedroom that color. It took me six months to convince him to paint over it, and it was truly awful. It drove me crazy, along...

    A win at work

    Last month I got my annual review. I have a new boss, who's off-site. My performance score was "On target" and my raise mediocre (2.75%, average for my company). I never think of myself as a average...

    Again, can you put your grandchild in daycare and go back to work?

    Bluey - If this is so rare, why is it that someone with a camera happens to be there when it happens? The answer is that it's not so rare. Is it every day at every farm? No. But it's often enough...

    I don't know if that's so. There will be new fogies aging through as the old ones die. I think the elderly are less likely to want change. In fact, by opening this vote up to the 16-17 year olds, the...
