[ - ] Really dumb question, help me out UB... I am running in my first 5k on Saturday! Tomorrow I am supposed to pick up my "packet" which includes the race t-shirt. Am I supposed to wear the t-shirt when I run in the race or is that like wearing a Metallica tshirt to a Metallica concert? TIA 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

A lot of people will. I always followed the rule that you don't do or wear anything on race day that you haven't tried in training. That's not as important in a 5k as in a marathon, but I still never wore a race shirt to that race. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Is there a way to directly give gifts to a family in need? I'm a single mom and while I'm not in the best place financially, I'm doing better than I was a few years ago when I couldn't get gifts for my own kids. But I remember at that time not being able to get access to donated gifts. I'd rather give directly to a family now. Is that even a thing? I don't mind doing it anonymously. 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Some companies have a Santa program, where you can choose a letter from a specific family or person and get the things they asked for/it goes directly to them. I'm in Boston and we have one through the Boston Globe; when I was in NYC there was a program that my company worked with (I can't remember what it was - Operation Santa?). That's probably the best way to do it on a specific-family basis. They won't know it's from you, but you know where it's going. [ Reply | More ]

It's fun! Just relax and go with the flow. You can eat and be entertained 24/7, or you can relax and mind your own business. There are big shows each night and smaller venues with trios, bands and singers. You can take part in lots if activities or just sit on a deck and read a book. You can take excursions each day- physical activities like boating, jet skiing, snorkeling, sightseeing. Or you can opt to sit on a beach or stay on the ship and sit by the pool. When I've cruised with a crowd we all do our own thing during the day and just meet up for dinner and a show. Enjoy! [ Reply | More ]

My teen was looking for a job last summer here in NYC and it was very difficult. Fast food, supermarket and retail jobs are filled by adults when they used to be for teens. She's 16 now so I'm hoping it'll be a little easier for her now as opposed to when she was 15. But I'm not that hopeful. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I was talking to an older Jewess (a bit past 80) who has been living off-and-on in Israel since the 1950's, and she talked about how the "idea" of Israel back then was basically "our Europe," meaning a Jewish country that replicate the universities and the culture of Europe but in a Jewish context. She said that she doesn't like the current direction the country is taking involving the infiltration of religious laws and influence into secular realms. And that religion was supposed to be part of the background culture (like Christianity in modern Europe); not THE culture. I wonder how many Israelis nowadays feel the same way.
