CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING

The national sport in Scandinavian countries, cross-country skiing was the forerunner of downhill skiing. Downhill skiing requires costly boots, bindings, skis, poles, clothing, lessons, and lift tickets.

Will your car start this winter?

A heated garage, of course, is the best winter protection your car can have.

How to care for caged pets

The cuddly little caged pets we talked about last month-- guinea pigs, hamsters, and rabbits-- have cousins that make equally enjoyable pets. While many mothers have a difficult time finding a place for gerbils, rats, and mice in their hearts, these animals require much less space and care than dogs and cats do. In fact, these quick little creatures ask little more than love, and kids supply that.

PLANNED NEIGHBORHOODS SINGLE-FAMILY DETACHED HERE'S WHAT TO LOOK

Remember the housing developments of the late '40s and '50s? Row after row of neat little boxes, all lined up in a military formation. Fortunately, we're seeing fewer and fewer repeats of these old mistakes, mainly because farsighted developers and discriminating buyers realize that there are better ways to design a neighborhood community.
