SCHOOL DISCIPLINE WHAT CAN A PARENT DO?

BUYING A NEW CAR? HERE'S HOW TO GET THE BEST DEAL

If you've been bitten by the new car bug, you've probably also been stung by new car prices. And when you add transportation and dealer preparation costs, state and local taxes, and license fees to the advertised price, you get an even more staggering "sticker price."

A guide to planning & planting a small start-from-scratch garden

Once you're hooked on gardening, you enjoy all phases of it-- even the digging. But before you lift a finger, you'll need a master plan. Then you can fit flower borders into your overall design-- and that's where the fun comes in. With pencil and eraser in hand, move plants about on the plan until you arrive at the arrangement that pleases you most. Your goal is to have your annuals, perennials, bulbs, and shrubs create an undulating mixture of colors and textures that will last from spring to frost. To help you achieve that objective, we've designed a guideline garden.

America Rediscovered, Part 5

What epitomizes New England? Some people say it's the pristine little towns with their tidy colonial houses in muted tones of green, gray, blue, red, and gold. Others think it's the sand dunes dropping down to pale beaches, or the craggy rocky shores that fend off the surging Atlantic. Or the forested mountains that burst into a frenzy of color with autumn's arrival. Or the hilly countryside where covered bridges span sparkling streams and farms nestle comfortably, their property lines defined by gravity-defying stone walls, built without mortar, that roll with the landscape.
