    I've always heard you should stick with eating raw shellfish during the "r" months - that is, any month with an "r" in it (so, basically, avoid oysters May-August). Water temperatures are cooler Septe more »

    It may not be a gender dynamic as much as it is a result of birth order.  I'm not a parent (yet), but from my general observations during years of babysitting, younger children tend to be a bit more d more »

    I'm very sorry you are dealing with this.  Can't speak to the insurance end of things, but I highly recommend the Nissan on Rt. 1 in Lynnfield. more »

    I agree with Alf and Kar that you really don't need a theme.  Please don't spend too much time or money crafting one; as long as you plan a fun party, people will have a great time. But, if you're det more »

    I've found that neti pots are more effective at clearing up my cold symptoms than cold medication - my sinuses stay clearer after using a neti pot than they do after taking Sudafed. Plus, neti pots do more »

    I'm not a parent, but aunt to a girl who, as a young child, was never told "no" because her parents told me "it upset her to hear that word."  Sure enough, whenever she was told "no" she threw a horri more »

    I am looking to join a gym, ideally in the Belmont/Arlington/Watertown and possibly Cambridge area (if in Cambridge, it must have some access to parking).  Here are my criteria: *not too expensive (id more »

    If the bride and groom aren't close enough to you and your boyfriend to know that you were living together, how would they even necessarily know you're still dating?  Would they then have had to invit more »

    Thanks for your ideas, everyone.  RedFish: I did contact my friend and she said that her parents are fine about the fact that my parents now know, and her dad is going to call them soon.  She explaine more »

    She wasn't drinking when she gave me the news, no. Sorry, I should have added in my post that that my friend told me she would tell her parents that I now knew, and that I would tell my parents.  So, more »

    Last night I was at a party and a good family friend told me that her father had been diagnosed last summer with a terminal illness.  She mentioned her dad's health assuming that I'd already heard the more »

    I think the idea of a honeymoon registry rubs many people the wrong way because the idea behind giving a wedding gift, cash or otherwise, is that it's supposed to help a couple start their life togeth more »

    I second the International String Trio.  I heard them at a friend's wedding and they were wonderful, and I know they played a lot of the bride's special requests (and did a great job with those reques more »

    Posted 06/13/2011 12:20:16 EDT

    I know I'm not Ajuly but I'll add my two cents: Even at black tie events where half the women wore short dresses, MOST of the men wore tuxes.  The few that didn't stuck out, in my opinion, but that's more »

    Posted 06/10/2011 02:37:18 EDT

    Kar, I agree that women generally need a floor-length gown for black tie.  When I've been invited to black tie weddings and balls, that is what I have worn. BUT, I have also seen many, many women in c more »

    In Response to Re: Black Tie: "Black Tie" also traditionally means a floor-length dress for women....I don't know if that rule has relaxed now that most of us don't own gowns anymore. Posted by cosmog more »

    As a professional singer, actor and dancer, I can say emphatically that there is a huge difference between performing with a recording and performing with live musicians. Live theater is a live thing: more »

    You could do the Oval Room at the Copley Plaza, which is smaller than their Grand Ballroom.  My parents had their reception there and the pictures are beautiful. more »

    I hope Kate's dress isn't strapless.  Nothing wrong with strapless dresses, but bridal fashion has been so dominated by that neckline I'm just getting bored with it.  more »
