What type of contractor to install cooktop exhaust system - Drury01
Want to get a contractor to determine if we can install an overhead exhaust venting system in place of our current downdraft. The cooktop is on an interior wall, so I know that it might not be feasible to vent outside and may need makeup air. Question is what trade (plumber, electrician, etc.) do...

When to begin taking social security payments - Drury01
Any advice about when to start receiving SS payments at age 62 or full retirement age of 67 or somewhere in between? Let’s assume that wait until 67 for SS but would take a similar amount from 401k account from 62 to 67. I think SS payments increase by 8% or so annually from 62 to 67. So, waiting p...

re: Really need to vent, I'm in a dark place - Drury01
I urge you to check yourself into a detox facility or in-patient addiction treatment center now. If not, you may just fall deeper into a dark place from which you may not survive. Get sober and then try cleaning up the mess that you’ve created starting with your family. Best of luck to you. It won...

The adoption agency we used required an open adoption agreement. The birthmother we matched with wanted input on the baby’s name, wanted her family to meet the baby and wanted annual letters from us giving updates about the baby. The meeting with her family and the name thing worked out fine. The bi...

re: OT dads, how do you handle this situation where the outcome doesn’t end in prison? - Drury01
Sounds almost exactly what we’ve been through with our daughter with some added complications. I feel for you and your wife since I know what it’s like to watch your daughter spiral down and rip your family apart while nothing you try helps. I know it doesn’t help to know that your family isn’t alon...

Concrete staining contractor - Drury01
