Buying a coat may be a rite of fashion passage this time of year, but don't think you have to settle for any boring basic. Think of it like an accessory — sort of like the handbag you wear every day. It always makes a first impression, so why not make it special?
And yes, buying a coat can be a major investment, so shop around.

Our children are growing up in a vastly different world from the one in which we grew up. By the time they graduate, much of what we taught them will be obsolete. Our country is in a period of transition, moving away from dependence on fossil fuels to a greener future. Let's prepare our children by transitioning them and their school environment.

There's a fifth taste? Absolutely — just as there was a fifth Beatle.
Most people know the John, Paul, George and Ringo of taste buds: sweet, salty, sour and bitter. But scientists insist there is a fifth, a gustatory Billy Preston: umami.
Preston, naturally, played keyboards for the "Let it Be" album and most of "Abbey Road."

People have been catching colds since the beginning of time — and for just as long, we've been trying to cure them. In spite of our best efforts, the common cold remains one of the most frequently acquired illnesses in the world.
If you're like most adults, you can expect to catch a cold two to four times each year. With each infection, you'll likely spend around eight to 10 days coughing, sniffling, sneezing and generally feeling miserable.

Q: Our son and his two young children are moving in with us after his divorce. We had planned to move ourselves, but now we'll stay put and add a great room for the kids. Our house is Tudor-style, so we want the new room to blend with the old things, such as the woodwork, stained glass and hardwood floors. We were thinking of using reclaimed wood for the floors and woodwork, but my husband hates the thought of "used" wood. Is it a bad idea?

Thanksgiving is almost here. Families across the nation will come together to share more than a meal — to share warm memories, and to make them. You may plan to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade, toss a football on the leaf-covered yard, or simply sit together over coffee or wine to talk. While the family is together, it may be the perfect time to help Mom or Dad, Grandma or Grandpa, or your favorite Aunt or Uncle. Just ask them to pass the mouse.
