    OFF-TOPIC Slowlane Relationships

    We're having minor issues with the in-laws when we get into these discussions. Father-in-law is a retired business man (retired at age 45), so my spouse really values his opinion. I do too, but there are some things we can't talk about. For example, we got into it last weekend talking...

    HOT TOPIC How to develop your PLAN

    The plan for the books is to sell them and purchase a video recorder with the proceeds for the birth of the new baby and the camping trip. Going through the books first will make it easier to get rid of everything else. It will be like, "Hey, we got rid of the books, so what are we doing...
