HOUSING COSTS: RESHAPING THE AMERICAN DREAM

Throughout American history, home ownership has been a symbol of both personal achievement and community stability.

SMART NEW LOOKS FOR SHABBY KITCHENS

Old cabinets, old counter tops, and old appliances usually mean a worn-out kitchen-- and that's just what many of us are stuck with. No matter how faithfully an "old clunker" kitchen has performed over the years, it will be a lot more functional and pleasant to work in if it's overhauled. To demonstrate, we'll show you three average-size kitchens that were redone-- without moving walls or adding space. Check the old-fogy "before" photos and the dramatic "afters," and you'll see that there's hope for even the homeliest kitchen.

A holiday away from home is great, but what about the rest of the summer? With a little planning, you can turn your yard into an enticing setting or throw some parties that will help you "vacation" at home all season long. You can dine in a romantic lanai-style spot, enjoy coffee and the newspaper (every morning!) at a mini "sidewalk café" right outside your door, or while away a lazy hour in a hammock strung between two obliging trees.
