Does anyone have any good tips for making a DIY lean-to or shelter of some sort? I am so tired of lugging my bike into the basement every night (and have no interest in lugging it UP to my apartment). We have a little space behind the building where I could cobble something together. All I have right now is a sad little tarp.

Eating well had a recipe for waffle iron cookies in their Holiday cookie issue a few years ago: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/boot_tracks.html

Next time try Barilla complete. It's a blend of different flours (including chickpea for protein) and is much less sturdy than whole wheat. It's my favorite.

A bunch of my co-workers and I had a recession party. I made a pink-slip dress out of a 40 cent pillowcase. We served bottom shelf drinks (Pabst, Naragansett) and low-budget snacks (store brand cheese puffs. Pretzel rods. Charleston chew bars, only because the packaging reminded me of the 20s and the last big recession)
For cheap, indoor fun, we hoola-hooped. A good time was had by all.

I always wanted these when I was little. Then my friend gave me her set for my 16th birthday and I've had it ever since. I use it to make birthday cards and all manner of people with thought bubbles added. The best ever.

This store is great. I went there on a little pilgrimage from Boston to get some Christmas presents last month. I loved most everything in there, and the fact that they get to go to different countries looking for all the best well-designed stuff made me slightly covetous of their jobs. It feels very much like a non-pretentious, well-curated gallery.

Those are boot scrapers when when the streets were lined with. . . horse poop

Joebelt-
I don't think the owner gives the cold shoulder at all. Maybe you're just used to shopping in places where the staff follows you around, breathlessly hoping you'll buy something. I think it's kind of nice to be able to look around undisturbed. I've always gotten a very friendly reply whenever I have a question about something.

I've got it. My mother convinced me to get it years ago, as she was once in an apartment fire and was the only roomate with insurance. It's really cheap and totally worth it.

Our "office", which is really just the room in which we stick all the things we have to other place for, is in dire need of assistance.

There are, in fact, still about 8 Shakers around. They live in the village in Sabbath Day Lake, Maine. My friend lived and worked with them for a little while in college. They liked to watch (wholesome) tv after dinner.
