I'm an American living in Switzerland for 17 years, which is exactly how long I've been married. We have two awesome bilingual kids with whom I stay home, having left an extremely stressful job in the commodities trading industry. I dabble in commercial and freelance writing. Though I'm closer to 40 than I'd like to be, I'm aging gracefully and healthily, which is really all that matters. Likes: music, travel, books, writing, cooking, research, exercise (it's true) The Flylady, and fashion. Dislikes: multitasking, scuba diving, emptying the dishwasher, aloofness (is that a word?), misinformation and capri pants. 'Life is a series of short stories pretending to be a novel' -Anonymous
The video is so clear in my head but I can't remember their name ARGH!
Lead singer is tall, blonde and wearing a jeans top and bottom. He has 2 backup girls and a boom box. Definitely Britpop, perhaps Electronica or disco. Not Stereophonics but similar in name....
Does anyone have any clues as to which song I'm trying desperately to remember? Thanks.1 AnswerOther - Music1 decade ago
In this book, Francie Nolan takes a job as a news reader/clipper, sorting newspaper stories, clipping them out and filing them away to be sent to "customers".
Have you ever heard of such a job? And what purpose did it serve during the early 1900's?
P.S. This isn't a homework question ;-) Thanks.2 AnswersMedia & Journalism1 decade ago
Growing up in the US, my family celebrated Advent with wreathes, calendars, cookie baking and decorating. But by the time I was a young adult the tradition seemed to have fallen out of favor. After moving to Europe and starting a family of my own, I've discovered that here the month before Christmas is filled with wonderful family feasts, events and traditions.

I recently mentioned to my husband that soon he will have to start teaching our little boy the art of being a gentleman. He seemed genuinely shocked and had to admit the thought had not even occurred to him.
What about you Y!A dads? Are you teaching your boys to be chivalrous? If so, how?11 AnswersParenting1 decade ago
My children (boy and girl) do not have much in common so they don't play together very often. But lately they have been fighting like crazy! They play, they fight and I have to break it up. This goes on until I lose my temper and seperate them but they still seem to gravitate to one another and the whole bull starts again.
They seem to really want to play together but they just can't resolve it when things go sour.
What do I do? Do I teach them how to play together or do I keep seperating them?9 AnswersParenting1 decade ago
