For some reason, three people have contacted me within the last day or two asking me for suggestions on how to deal with drinks and snacks when playing board or card games with friends. They do make a mess.
If we’re just playing a game with an ordinary deck of playing cards, I don’t sweat it. However, what we often do if we’re playing a board game or a card game with special cards is simply set up a side table or two adjacent to the main one. We simply ask that beverages and snacks stay on that table. In fact, with close friends, we’ll sometimes use a chair or something else more convenient for this.
It’s a great little step to prevent someone from saying “Oops…” and ruining a $30 game.
The Generation Gap I’ll completely agree with the idea that many people in their fifties, sixties, and seventies have a vastly different perspective on pensions and retirements than I do. I simply do not have confidence that they’ll exist when I’m old enough to use them. The numbers just don’t add up. (@ canadian finance blog)
How Much Do You Spend on Food? We’re somewhere between the middle 20% and the next higher 20%. A big reason for that is we tend to pay a little more to buy local foods and organic foods, and our shopping cart tends to have a pretty high proportion of fresh produce. (@ your life, their life)
