    Thanks, Ken. I was/am also a techie and I'm not concerned about getting it set up. I don't want her to be accidentally screwing it up, or not be able to make or answer a call when it's important.

    You do, the first time you want to take a closer look at something in the middle of the night. I think you'd regret the one-option choice sooner than a conventional dimmer.

    I'm not saying exercise is bad for you. I'm saying it's a lousy way to lose weight and the research shows that. Diets alone aren't much better. Losing weight is tough for people. I'm in the age group...

    I just priced pods and the smallest would cost us slightly over $1000 per month. It's likely that we'd be paying almost as much as we would for a shed, possibly more. Even if we get less than 10...
