Hah! I have that exact vacuum too and yes, it is great. The washable filters are so nice and the power paw gadget works well (though I did just spend an hour picking long cat hairs out to get it to turn again). It has a HEPA filter too.

It's not fancy in the least, but I really enjoy grapefruit in a fruit salad with nata de coco (coconut gel; look for it in asian markets) and whatever other fruits you have lying around (tropical fruits, guava, papaya, berries...)

Huh, that's an interesting color scheme! Since you can't really change the tile, you might want to work with it. I'm feeling something very Hollywood Regency-- shiny gold and mirrors and bling. Good luck!

I'd love more info on how to deal with narrow spaces as well! My long and narrow (12' wide) home is filled with radiators and strategically-placed doors that make furniture tetris very difficult.

Perhaps a poured floor is in order rather than tile, epoxy or rubber? No grout at all.

Personally, my primary concern is how much time I am able to spend with a pet. Some pets (fish, lizards, small rodents) can get by with just feeding and cage/tank cleaning. Others, like birds, need a lot of socializing. (Ever seen a bored bird? It's not pretty.)

Unfortunately, pets don't always adhere to our human schedules. If you have a demanding schedule, then perhaps pets are not for you.

Beautiful vintage piano-- I grew up playing an Acrosonic of more recent provenance. It isn't a great piano by any means; you're paying for the look in this case. For that price you can buy a rather nice new upright.

All Bran Buds cereal with milk and two cups of coffee with half-and-half. Weekdays I'm just not awake enough to manage elaborate breakfasts.

I inelegantly skirt the 'no dining room table' problem with a drop leaf table that folds down into the size of a console table, and folding chairs that live in the closet. Just shove the other furniture out of the way, and it's time for dinner!

One of my favorites is to add chopped green olives to classic egg salad. Sounds weird but so good!

As an American apartment dweller without my own laundry, let's just say I'd give a body part for a washer and dryer in the kitchen. Or anywhere, really.

Mustard greens are delicious and go in everything, from long-simmered beef braises to gently stir-fried with soy, sugar and mirin...

Airplane-grade aluminum alloy is a bit of overkill for a bathroom, no? Unless you need your walls to be lightweight and have high tensile strength?

I would argue that the people who shop at WF and the farmers' markets will continue to do so. Meanwhile, the people who shop at Wal-Mart now have access to good local produce, and the local farmer has another place to sell his goods. Who knows, perhaps the guy at WM will pick up a local tomato, realize how food is supposed to taste, and go from there?
