    Nice video.  But if the city really wants to sell City Hall as a venue for wedding, they should show more of the space in wedding mode.  (If their intent is just to soften City Hall's image, it works. more »

    Hi LW, You are living my life.  I also have a child with a life-long condition which places hardships -emotional, physical and financial - on the family.  My husband, like yours, is a quiet guy who de more »

    The two sets of parents don't need to become best friends, but it would be a nice gesture to allow them the chance to get to know each other a little.  As a parent, I would want to meet my future son- more »

    You don't even address the most significant issue (in my mind): the genetic implications. My husband lost a brother to a genetic disease (his parents were distant cousins from the same village). What more »

    Hi LW: Your story is heartbreaking, and familiar, at least to someone at my stage of life. I think people often expect too much from their partners/relationships. When they reach a certain stage in li more »

    One more thing: although your mom has a perfect right to have a relationship with "Anderson" if she wants to, you don't have to hear about it. It's reasonable to ask her to not talk about him in priva more »

    Your mom is doing her job. She has grown up a great, confident, independent daughter who has a bright future. Not everyone has had that kind of support from their family. Your mom's relationship with more »

    You have already gotten great advice here. I'd just like to add that if you want to have money for the big things in life, you might want to follow your boyfriend's lead and learn to make do with less more »

    Just read the January column. Funny! Bosse (or is it valentino?) would be good at writing one of these reviews. Also IDMWIT. more »

    My favorite kind of article. I love it when science can show us how to improve our quality of life right now. Thanks for the tips! more »

    This topic needed to be addressed. I frequently find the comment section on this site, especially of news/political articles, to be polarized/hijacked by the ranters. Discourages me from reading them more »

    Oh, and don't worry about the supposed inequalities in ratings. It's very difficult to perceive ourselves as others do - I suspect your "rating" is higher than you think. Don't pass up the chance to g more »

    Hi LW, your letter made me laugh. Loved the pi rating. Personally, I think self-confidence is overrated, at least in this culture. The main this is: don't let it keep you from doing what you want to d more »

    LW61510, thanks for the update. I know it's difficult to include everything in that initial letter. I personally advocate trying to part on good terms, as you would with any good friend. If you worry more »

    Checking in for new comments and noticed the debate about people moving for jobs vs. love. I don't see it that way at all. From my perspective, it's about satisfying short-term vs. long-term goals: sh more »

    Hi LW,

    I'm guessing you just graduated. If so, you should both spend a couple of years padding that resume. It will pay off for years to come. You'll be glad when it's time to put family first. more »

    Sorry, I take that last statement back. Homework is not the least of them. It is a significant factor (at least in my personal experience), but one of many other factors. more »

    Teacherinmass: I agree that many factors contribute to the problem of increased anxiety and stress in the schools today. Homework may be the least of them. Right now, we are addressing it piecemeal, o more »

    Besides the shrub types that have already been mentioned, Pieris and Yew will also do fine in shade.  For plants, I have Solomon's Seal and ferns in addition to many of the ones mentioned.  They are n more »

    This was fun. I can't believe I've been reading LL long enough to have read all but one of these letters. LL, I wish I could quit you. I think I'm gaining some distance, but then - every so often - th more »
