What makes a good study center?

Providing your child with a good study center could make the difference between a mediocre school year and a successful one. The setup needn't be elaborate or expensive.

How to have a party in spite of everything

How many times have you heard this refrain? And a dozen other reasons for party put-offs. But remember, excuses make recluses! If everyone waited for palatial settings and bulging billfolds, entertaining would be extinct. The point is-- ingenuity can surmount most obstacles.

Our inquiries about sending a 30- pound package to another city several states away brought estimates ranging from a low of $3.10 to a high of $17.01. There is no one "best way" to ship. Which one happens to be best for you depends on several factors: origin and destination facilities, urgency, size and weight of package and contents.
