    Need Help from London Experts

    We're going later this month (yay!!). I found www.VisitACity.com really helpful as I planned our London part. It would put each attraction on the day that made the most sense. There's also an app where you can download the planner before you go.

    Do you understand your spouse's job?

    Yes, but he's retired. Now ask me if I know WHY he does the things he does. OTOH, he knows my position and can pretty much tell people what I do, with some measure of accuracy.

    Your best corny joke/riddle

    Why does Ariel the mermaid wear seashells? Because B shells are too small and D shells are too big.

    Would you be upset?

    When my son got married, he had a woman (best friend) on his side, and his wife had her best friend (a guy) on hers. It really was not a big deal. So that's no excuse. Sorry you were left out, without explanation. ETA: Reading your explanation, your father sounds wimpy and doesn't want to...

    Us Citizens driving in the UK. Questions?

    Sorry about the Zombie Thread. I'm planning our trip to England later this month and was trolling the UK Community Board. Read "July" but didn't realize it was a year ago!!!

    Us Citizens driving in the UK. Questions?

    We're planning a trip to southern England in late June. Check out TripAdvisor forums and car rental reviews -- be sure NOT to book Green Motion for the rental -- there's apparently a lot of upselling (not recognizing insurance paid for damage) and what seems to be illegal stuff ("supposed"...

    What does your commute look like?

    Hour and a half in the morning, two hours in the afternoon. Drive to the train, train to the bus, bus to work. Downtown Chicago. Been doing it for 10 years now. Life goal now the kids are out of the house is to move closer to the city.

    How much did you make the first year you worked?

    1985 - $701. First "real" job was Woolworth's lunch counter the summer before I went to college. Then worked at a city office for my winter break that year, typing up dog licenses on 3 part forms. Ugh.

    Binge Watching - Hits and Misses

    Just finished binge watching Lucifer. We're into British shows. Finishing up the current season of Poldark. Those of you who like Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries would like The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries. I also enjoyed Shakespeare and Hathaway as well.

    Does anyone enjoy shopping for cars?

    Hate, hate it. Even when we went in with CASH, it took well over two hours to deal with the paperwork, etc. What a freaking waste of time.

    A Movie Star, that is not a huge name

    Love John Lithgow. I listened to the audiobook of him reading his autobiography -- it's a really great listen.

    Any type of Movies do you red flag

    I have a cousin (in-law) in the movie business. He says that most of this is because the production companies don't want to take a chance on something that hasn't been done before. For me, it's horror and summer teen movies.

    Have you ever banned someone from your house?

    There had also been another incident (actually with her father) that I can't recall the specifics of, but all I can remember is that I called our homeowner's insurer to increase our liability. This was the second straw. I seem to remember her telling her father that she fell while she was...

    Have you ever banned someone from your house?

    Seriously? Because no sane man would stay with a woman like that.

    I love you guys! My first thought was Barry Manilow when I saw the thread, and I'm so psyched that there are other fans out there!

    Have you ever banned someone from your house?

    When DS was 10-11, he had a friend down the street who was a girl. We had a "policy" that when the kids' friends were over, they were ours, so we would take the kids out to dinner, on shopping trips, etc. with us. One time, this girl was with us and she was just chatting in the back seat of...
