  • How can I encourage my gerbils to explore?

    I have a very nice cage topper (http://www.amazon.com/Chew-Proof-Sm-High-Rise/dp/B... which my hamster enjoys. I just got two gerbils and gave them the same topper but they don't seem to have figured out the ramp at all. How can I encourage them to explore it and make better use of their space?

  • Should I be expected to stay quiet in Starbucks, or is it expected that people will chat?

    Last night I met with two friends at a local Starbucks. We were chatting and laughing and having a nice time - not being obnoxious, but definitely not being silent. A guy was there by himself, on his computer, and he asked us to be quiet because he was "trying to study." We took our conversation down a few ticks, but twenty minutes later he left in a huff.

    Was it wrong for us to have a conversation at the coffee shop, or wrong of him to ask us to be quiet?

  • Would a Presbyterian be offended by a book that mentions Mass?

    I found these beautifully illustrated books that I want to share with some children in my life for Christmas. However, the books mention (just in passing) the existence of the Mass. I don't want to make the parents mad or put them in an awkward position of having to explain something they don't want to explain, but these a lovely books and I already bought them before I noticed the problem. I'm an Episcopalian, so this doesn't pose a problem for my theology, but would it bother a Presbyterian family? I don't know enough about that denominaton to know. Thank you!

  • What is a good outfit to wear with orchid lipstick?

    The lipstick itself kind of makes a statement, so I don't want to go crazy with the outfit, but since the lipstick is a statement, the outfit can't be too casual or drab. Help!

  • How can I make a dress of thin fabric look better on me?

    I bought a simple dress online, but when it arrived I found that the fabric is quite thin and is a bit too revealing. What can I do to improve this? Accessories, foundation garments, what?

  • Why do single parents think they deserve pity?

    In my line of work, I meet a lot of single parents (moms) who think that they should get special treatment because of their multiple obligations. I feel that virtually all single parents are in that circumstance because they chose a partner poorly or they chose to be a poor partner themselves. Why give them special treatment because of their own decisions?

    I'd appreciate any insight because I'm feeling pretty annoyed right now.

  • Highlighting product for the fair-skinned?

    I am very fair skinned, blonde, and blue-eyed. I wear the lightest shade of foundation in every brand I've ever come across. Frankly, I like my skin the way it is and don't see a need to tan.

    However, when I want to contour and highlight my face, I find that I cannot locate a highlighting shade that is lighter than my actual skin color / foundation. What product can I use for highlighting?

    Thank you!

  • Do people really wear heavy eye makeup?

    I absolutely love to wear lots of makeup. I want to wear all the fabulous looks I see online, including colors, dark smokey eyes, and so on, but I don't see how I could pull it off in real life. Do you have any thoughts? I'd especially appreciate photos of "real people" (not celebrities) who make this look seem approachable and fun.

  • My dog was sick on Monday, seems great now, but the vet thinks she may have a tumor. How do I deal?

    My dog's breed is prone to gallbladder problems, and so when she start vomiting on Monday, the vet assumed that's what it was. She was also shaking and lethargic, with some abdominal pain. This also happened exactly a month ago, and she recovered well. Two days later, she's completely fine - back to herself entirely: eating, barking, pooping, and everything else a dog should do.

    I took her in for an ultrasound and the doctors said they found a mass near/on her intestines. The needle aspirate (biopsy) came back with no cancer cells, so they wanted to do a full-on surgery to see what's going on and possibly remove the tumor, if that's the problem.

    We're seeking a second opinion next week, but online I'm finding far more info pointing toward gallbladder or liver problems than to cancer, especially the intermittent nature of the problems.

    Any thoughts or advice?

  • How do churches that practice adult baptism welcome new babies?

    I attend a denomination that practices infant baptism, and that event is also when we welcome the child to the world and to the community. But my friends are having a baby and their church practices adult baptism, so what is the event that welcomes the new baby?

    I'm interested because I know that the usual gift I give to new parents won't work, so I want to be culturally sensitive and so on. I don't want to ask the parents because it seems weird to ask them what kind of gift I should give their baby.

    Help, please?

  • What do prisoners think should happen in prison? A serious question.?

    A lot of prison documentaries show the prisoners saying things like, "the corrections officers are evil", "I don't belong in prison", "my actions shouldn't be controlled", and the like.

    What do those who are incarcerated think should happen to people who hurt other people? If prison is too harsh, what sort of consequences do they feel would be more acceptable for their actions?

    I am asking this question in earnest. I'd really like a serious answer to my question. Thank you!

  • Do dogs recover from illness?

    We currently have our first dog, an absolutely amazing nine-year-old we adopted after a family member died unexpectedly. She's been with us about a year and a half, and she's healthy, happy, and utterly wonderful.

    However, yesterday she started throwing up but continued acting normal. Then today she's no longer vomiting but is lethargic and won't eat or drink.

    We've taken her to the vet, of course, and they gave her sub-cutaneous fluids and plan to x-ray her tomorrow. No one has any idea what's wrong with her. Her blood work is pretty much normal, and she seems not to display any pain or anything else.

    Do dogs recover from illness? I know that by the time a hamster starts to show symptoms of illness, it's pretty much too late to save them. But what about dogs? Can they recover, like humans do? Please reassure me - I'm terrified.
