[ - ] When you see your girlfriends (let's say you haven't seen them in a week or two), do you go on and on complimenting each other back and forth about how thin the other one looks, how their outfit looks/fits, how much they been exercising etc? I find this to be the case often and it seems so odd to me. Am I too much of a feminist? I never hear men run into each other after only a weeks time and spend ten minutes commenting on each other's body and outfit. It just seems so weird to me, especially when I know these people have seen each other recently. It seems like most moms have the goal of raising assertive young women and this sort of body obsession seems so draconian to me. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's a big faux pas to comment on someone else' appearance, even to compliment. Maybe a vague "you look well" is okay, but not the OTT exchange you describe. It screams Real Housewives to me. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] a bit worried... have a slight cold, not very congested, but for the past 2 days I have felt a bit dizzy, head feels heavy, particularly at night. No other health issues. Was sitting at the computer just now and all of a sudden I just felt as if I was about to pass out...very scary. I have also had a few hot flashes yesterday (had some last year for a couple of months and then no more). 48yo - not sure if this lightheadedness could part of menopause symptoms, I worry easily... thanks. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

could be part of perimenopause. Start taking vitamin D (at least 5000 IU daily), B Complex vitamins and magnesium w/ a good (not from a drugstore) multivitamin and fish oil. You should do this daily and take after eating some healthy fats (avocado, nuts, nut butter, salmon). [ Reply | More ]

op- thanks for the tip. I used to take a multivitamin, but have not really done so for the past year and a half (I kept forgetting to take it) I think it is a good one: food based, New Chapter brand. Will do the vitamin D as well... as regards magnesium, last year I was taking approx. 300mg of this every evening, but it started giving me stomach issues so the gastroenterologist suggested to stop. Would the B complex you mention also have magnesium? Anyway, will try these supplements. I just get so scared with the dizziness/light headedness... perimenopause is such a strange time. I never know what I can consider normal and wish I could learn not to worry so much. Thanks! [ Reply | More ]

A little bit of online research reveals that the sound of Bosendorfer is somewhat gloomier. Not sure if that's true. Apparently Bosendorfers are all excellent whereas only 1 in 30 Steinways is excellent - they have an issue with consistency. They supply conservatories with pianos and get piano players used to them. A lot of it is marketing. [ Reply | More ]

Discussing with another female friend today, we both agreed we never got that vibe from him and we are pretty worldly and suspecting of any man who gives any indication of being fat.

From the brief conversation DH and I had about prepaying is that right now we are not getting full tax benefits from mortgage interest tax deduction because of AMT. So, absent that benefit, it may make sense to prepay inorder to reduce our total payments. As an aside, we have a very low mortgage, so it would not really impact our savings or anything like that. If we could get more tax benefits, it may make sense for us to string it out. [ Reply | More ]

Not really. You don't get all the money back in taxes that you pay in interest. If you're in the 35% tax bracket, for every $10,000 you pay the bank in interest you get back $3,500 in taxes. You're still out $6,500. [ Reply | More ]
