which one do you prefer? having kids or no kids? and why??
  • I'm struggling with teenagers being enjoyable, both of mine were monsters. They are adults and doing well now, but I wouldn't re-do the teenage years if you paid me. I'm glad your experience was much better.

  • which one do you prefer? having kids or no kids? and why??
  • So, I have a few family members getting on in age and they are worried about the same thing. In one instance, they hired a house cleaner to come on once a week, just purley my happenstance, but she is able to let us know if said family member feels "a little off base"

  • Too many posers
  • I used to think the same thing, but then I met my husband who rides, and now I do too. The way he explained it to me is that you need people to hear you, they may not always see you, you at least get a second chance to not get ran over if they can hear you.

  • What's the most basic thing you can't do?
  • So, I was in the same spot for a long time. The one thing I can suggest is to get a tiny portion of something you want to cook, for instance you want to make fried chicken at some point; in the beginning just get like 2 thighs that you aren't planning on really eating. It's literally just a test. The pressure is off for dinner that night and you get room to explore while still knowing if you have to throw it all away you are okay with it.

  • What's the most basic thing you can't do?
  • My husband bought me a Garmin when they very first came out, not because we were flashy people, but he wanted to know I could get somewhere by myself if I needed to . You are not alone my friend

  • How does the day-to-day work of not wearing shoes in the house?

    I have been reading a lot lately about not wearing outside shoes in the house and it interests me even more because I've been saving to re-carpet my whole house. It hits me every now and then about how to do things though, like, say I'm cooking all day on Sunday then need to take the trash out. I'm assuming it's change shoes, then say the grandkids stop by and want to go go for a bike ride? I'm assuming it's change shoes. I guess maybe what I'm asking is how many baskets by how many doors with how many pairs of slip-ons (both indoor and out) do I need?


    Why are people so antsy to see others in person?

    I WFH, every year one of the goals that the rest of the team decides is that it's "so great" to see each other in person. The past few years haven't worked out but one did. I spent hours in a couple of airports, the huge expense for the company, I spent days away from my family, and for what? So you could look me in my same face you would see if we turned cameras on every once in a while? My husband says I'm being weird, but I legitimately want to know, what is the benefit? I hate being there and have to play nice so you can.....look me even closer in the face?


    I hope this is the right place to put this..I want to use pi-hole

    I want to use pi-hole and it comes highly recommended to use raspberry pi to cover the house and have an always on capability. I started looking at just starter packages at Amazon and they don't come with a monitor, which it looks like you need. How do I do this? I want a raspberry pi to run pi-hole to protect my house.

    Edit: Thank you all so much for the tips and all the different ways to get this up and going , I am officially on my pi-hole journey!


    Another show like One Strange Rock

    I love the show One Strange Rock, I know Will Smith has pretty much lost his noodle, but c'mon, couldn't there be a different host and still listen to the astronauts? Has @astropettit made it here yet? Are there any other shows that offer a look from the astronauts point of view?


    I need help with code

    I'm not sure where to post the code, I don't want to make anyone irritated, but I need legit help with my SQL. Is this the right place? If not, what is the right community?
