    I have a 1979 Porche 911 lying in my garage which my husband is in the process of restoring. It's almost done now and we plan to use it once in a while. Someone told me that classic car insurance is cheaper than regular insurance. What is your experience?

    DH and I have been discussing the gluten free menu that we've had in place since August. While we have seen some marked improvements in DS11's behavior, we're not certain if that's something dealing with the diet or other means. This other means includes a change in medication dosage and...

I've had a serious, regular practice, a sort of combination of Buddhist and yogic methods, for about three...

    Q&A: Do steam laundry appliances work better than regular washers and dryers? I've seen a growing number of steam-equipped washers and dryers in stores. How well do these machines work? As we noted in our February 2008 report "Washers and Dryers: Performance for Less,"€� more manufacturers are...

    Sometimes I really wonder if I suffer from real clinical depression and then other times I feel that is just crazy. Lately I have had some of the worst days and the very smallest of things just set me off into a whirlwind inside. I barely made it to work on Monday, I really mean that I forced...

    This has been on my mind a lot lately (I'll blame it on hmsclmom because I keep thinking about a comment she made in a thread about buying soy flour from the bulk bins at the grocery store). Who here can buy from bulk bins at regular grocery stores (not health food stores)? What kinds of...
