They’re young and in love and seeing the world on a shoestring budget.
Cheney and Coeur d’Alene. The state line and the Cascades. Lewiston and Vancouver, B.C.
Fourteen states stretching from Kansas to Delaware, including all of the Deep South, are joining to promote the U.S. Civil Rights Trail, which will highlight about 130 sites linked to the modern civil rights movement. The joint effort was unveiled as part of the MLK holiday weekend.
Baby boomers have a dirty little secret. Despite all sorts of evidence to contrary, we like to think of ourselves as hip and happening and also seasoned and wise. But there is one subject that makes us theatrically clear our throats and lurch to change the subject.
NEW YORK – Stop making excuses. Start making plans. That’s the message behind the second annual National Plan for Vacation Day. It’s an effort by the travel industry to persuade Americans to use Jan. 30 as a day to schedule their vacations for the year and take advantage of any paid time off they are entitled to from their jobs.
Pretty sure even if you gave them figgy pudding, the little bothers wouldn’t eat it.

Readers’ recollections of having breakfast at their grandparents’ homes reminded Jeff Neuberger of a treasured family story. “When our daughter was learning to talk she would mispronounce words, like most kids. For a while we thought she’d need a speech therapist. My parents thought she needed counseling after a short discussion at breakfast one morning.”
Diets don’t work. Anyone who says they have found the proven way to lose weight and keep it off is selling snake oil, and counting on repeat customers.

The Slice asked about favorite childhood breakfast cereals. Dave Payne recalled growing up in Montana with three Cheerios-eating sisters. He couldn’t stand them. (Cheerios that is, not his sisters.) “They were girly food.”
If it sounds far-fetched to sell your home and most possessions to live year-round in a RV, one Spokane couple did just that seven years ago. And they’ve never looked back.
Perhaps wedded bliss extends to residential bliss.
Paddington has nothing on these bears. Except for an irrational love of marmalade.
My builder really goofed up my new home. A room at the corner of the house next to the front door had its roof installed too low. The mistake is being corrected, but I’m quite upset as I don’t feel the job is being done right. They’re leaving the old roof in place and putting the new framing on top of the old! Everyone is pointing fingers at who’s responsible.
The doors of the Airlink 100 bus from Edinburgh airport hissed open at what we thought was the stop nearest to our hotel. The desk clerk I’d emailed said the stop was directly in front of the hotel, which was supposed to be close to the city center. As the bus pulled away, we did not appear to be either opposite the hotel or near the center of anything, except a row of low-rise brown stone structures and a four-lane road. Wrong stop.
