  9. Goals and Dreams
    Ok, I just finished responding to another thread that rising costs might see me biking to work. Nice goal, good idea under normal circumstances. Then we get to the BUT part (I always seem to have a big "but" in the picture). I am currently unable to walk, much less bike. So, while that might be...

    Private nurses for common folks You may think of private nurses as a luxury for the ultra-rich, like a butler or personal chauffeur. But hiring in-house medical care has become an increasingly viable option for regular folks too.
