TRENDS WORTH WATCHING IN OUR SCHOOLS

Rehabbing An Old Brick Bungalow

It's hard to believe that this charming brick bungalow was once a crumbling, boarded-up old house.

HOW TO COPE WITH YOUR PET'S CRAZY QUIRKS

When you live with a pet day in and day out, you get to know him well. Nevertheless, certain behavioral quirks of dogs and cats still can be baffling. More often than not, these actions are triggered by instincts that can be traced back to the days before dogs and cats were domesticated-- when your pet's ancestors foraged for food, ran in packs, and had to protect themselves from the threat of predators.

High-Quality Recordings

Have you noticed a section of special albums in the record shop or stereo store, called audiophile recordings or "digitally recorded" albums?
