The times they are a-changin' but a few things stay the same-- like the exhilarating pleasure of a brisk winter morning spent sliding down a hillside over fresh-fallen snow.

Houseplants need cleaning

If you don't remove dust from foliage, plants can't breathe or grow properly. Take care of your largest leaved plants to begin with, since they're the ones that accumulate the most dust and grime. Also, they're much easier to clean than the plants with small or cut-leaved foliage.

PORNOGRAPHY: WHAT CAN WE DO TO PROTECT OUR KIDS?

The pollution by pornographers of our moral environment has spread from Manhattan to Main Street. Mailboxes across the country are stuffed with sexual ads. Every sizable community has "triple-X" movies, "porn parlors" where hard-core books and magazines are sold, nudie nickelodeons, raunchy recordings, underground newspapers with sadistic comics and page after page of lewd want ads.

Choosing and caring for Christmas trees

Nowadays, Christmas trees are planted and cared for on farms. Few people cut their own in the wilds anymore. Perhaps you're lucky enough to have access to a tree farm where you can select a tree which is sure to be fresh.

Subdividing a family room

Remodeling usually means making a room bigger, but this family room needed sizing down. It was much too large for the second owners of a spacious Victorian-styled house. The high ceiling and unbroken floor plan made the room feel cold and cavernous.
