    We are in our 40s, so we are not silly teenagers. He is very kind-hearted and has offered to share his home with his ex because she is financially strapped. She lived with him before I met him, by the way. I am certain there is no romantic relationship going on. Certain. The problem is that she is doing hurtful things to sabotage our relationship. She hacked his email and Facebook accounts in order to send me insulting messages that I would think were from him. She also posts insulting remarks on my Facebook page. He and I have no privacy when we are at his home, she doesn't want me there. I have told him how much her behavior hurts me, and he has changed his passwords and asked her to stop. He also demanded that she move out, but gave her until November to do so. He is also funding her move. On one hand he is to be commended for his generosity, but on the other hand....shouldn't he put me first? Her behavior will not improve before November, and it may not improve then either. Am I wrong to want her gone now? Am I being unreasonable? He is a practical-minded business owner and an intelligent person. But has a soft-spot for strong women. She definitely knows how to manipulate him. I hope to hear from both men and women....I'd like to see both sides of this problem. Thanks for reading.

  • What do you think of online dating for the "over 40" crowd?

    Have you or anyone you know (in the over 40 age group) had good or bad luck with online dating? What sights do you recommend or NOT recommend? I know it's popular and acceptable for young people, but many in my age group are a little leary of these things. I welcome all advice, but hope for answers from those in their 40s or 50s. Thanks.

No instructions on installing a cd, either...so there isn't supposed to be one. When I connect the camera to my pc using the USB cable, there is no icon to click on to view the photos. The user's guide in the owners' manual says "Open 'My Computer' or 'Windows Explorer'. Removable Disk appears in the drive list. Double-click the icon to access images." I have no such icon. I did a search on my PC for "USB" and found that there is a driver, it reads "USBInfo.ini" and it's in the C:\Documents and Settings folder. I know I'm doing SOMETHING wrong. Please help me.

    My husband and I are retiring soon, and our current business cards will (of course) be outdated. We travel a lot and use our cards very often, so I will still need cards in the future for meeting people and networking (even though I'll retire I will keep an active interest in the field). He is Military and retiring as a Colonel. He will ALWAYS be called that....so it's proper etiquette for his cards to read "Colonel John Smith, Retired". But, what on earth should my cards read? "Jane Smith, no job?" I joke, of course....but seriously, is it acceptable to have a card with only your name, address, and phone number on it? I don't believe I have ever noticed one. Thank you to all who respond.

Here is what is on the note he gave me: 1" Concave Shaper Cutter with Carbide Tip and 1/2" Mandrel. He's renovating our stair case and I think it's for molding.? Okay, so I've researched as best I can, and found this web page at todaystools.com: http://www.toolstoday.com/p-5477-heavy-d... If someone would be kind enough to look at that page and tell me which cutter is the proper one, I'd be so grateful. I'm wondering if it's the one that is $95.48 or the one below it. I don't know which part of the cutter is supposed to be 1", and how to tell if the mandrel is 1/2" (really I don't know for sure what a mandrel is). If anyone could help me figure this out I'd really appreciate it.

I know it's not pasteurized, and I'm okay with that. The problem cannot be that the cream was old, because their cow only freshened 6 days ago and they didn't milk her before then. These are good folks, and would never give away bad food, and this is the same butter they are feeding their own family. Is Jersey cream butter just smelly? Or is there something wrong with it?

    What can be done about a person with multiple Yahoo! identities asking the same trolling questions REPEATEDLY? The question: "How do I stop people telling me I stink?" comes up several times every day. The asker uses the identities "DONUT" and "Tasha" and "Victoria" to name a few. Of course, it's the same person asking. We all know it is. Reporting doesn't work because this person simply comes back with yet another identity. I try to be a forgiving and easy-to-get-along-with person but my patience is at an END here. I tell myself....let it go - it's not a big deal. But seriously, what is wrong with someone who repeatedly asks moronic, fake, and (an attempt at) shocking questions, just to get a rise out of people? What causes people to troll? Is it a personality defect? Is it the lack of a meaningful life? Or is it just plain pathetic-ness? I don't want to come off here as the "Yahoo! police" but, so many of us put a lot of effort and care into our questions and answers. Yahoo! is a community and those of us who use it appropriately deserve to be free from idiots like this. What to do? ps. I'm posting this in the "Etiquette" category as well as the Yahoo! Answers category because that's where this troll posts his/her questions.

But, we women think we are prettier made up and fixed up. What's the deal? note: Not sure into which category to place this question. Hope it hits the mark.

If YOUR son in law was doing this, you would talk to him, too. So, please don't tell me that we shouldn't have meddled.....we didn't meddle. We stood up for ourselves and our family. What he was doing was criminal and unimaginably dangerous and involved many members of our family. Okay, so you understand (I hope). He is so angry at us that he says we cannot see or visit his boys (our grandsons, aged 20 months and newborn) ever again. I babysat the older boy 4 days a week since he was 2 months old and we are CLOSE. I cannot bear the thought of never holding him again. My heart is broken.........shattered. I think he means it. I honestly think he would keep us from our grandchildren. Our daughter (his wife) is caught in the middle. I just spoke to her and she says she must support her husband. How do I bear this? How do I get through my days knowing I've lost my precious baby boys? It's as if my own children have been ripped out of my arms. What do I tell myself when it seems too much? I need reality, not something like "It'll get better" or "He'll change his mind". I need something to help me bear this. Thank you for listening.

I didn't get very far; I got to the part where I asked to speak to a supervisor about not being removed from their list. I got a very rude female with a thick accent who called me an "evil bit*h". She even went so far as to say she would talk to me tomorrow. I said no she won't, she cannot call me since I've made it known that I want no more calls. I am not about to get into a screaming match with anyone........but what can I say to someone like this? What will really get to them? What would upset them so much that they would maybe become afraid to call me?

    Today I was shopping and saw an adorable baby in her stroller with her mommy. As I passed by, I said "Hi there, Cutie Bootie! Aren't you the sweetest thing." I briefly stopped to smile and then was going to go on my way and the mom remarked "What an awful name to call my daughter! How rude!" I just stood there with my mouth hanging open (I'm certain) as she strolled away, looking back at me as if I were some sort of pervert or something. Another woman passing by said, "Don't let the little things get to you". It took me a while to figure out that the offending word must have been "bootie", but I just used it because it rhymes with "cutie". A little about me: I am 48, female, petite, well groomed, a grandmother, normal looking - I suppose, and I often smile and speak to little ones who make eye contact with me. I do NOT touch nor reach out for children...I would never do that. Also, I live in a small-ish city in the Midwest (not NYC or someplace like that). Did the mom overreact? Or was the fault my own?
