I find that I go from one hobby to another. Since I spend a lot of time in any one hobby at a time, there really isn't enough time to participate in more than one or two at a time.

A treadmill stress test might be a good idea--I had one not too long ago to make sure there weren't any cardiac issues. I find it helps to ease into extremely strenuous activities--such as digging big holes in the yard come springtime. Don't try to do everything in one day. As a bonus, I find this a...

64 bit Windows has no compatibility with 16 bit software. So, if anything is compatible with Windows 95, it won't run under any MS 64 bit operating system. 32 bit Window 7s may be able to run old 16 bit software.

No, I've been able to do all sorts of neat stuff most NTs only dream about doing.

I've been married for over 10 years and live in a comfortable single family home in the suburbs.

BTDT is an acronym for Been There Done That. I've discovered that I've done just about all the Aspie type things at one time or another. My wife, who figured out I'm an Aspie, says I display distinctive behaviors every day.

Maybe you could take the approach some mechanics take in fixing your car--they try different fixes until they find one that works... I'd suggest working on an issue that bugs you, and try different approaches to see which one helps you the most. Then work on another one. You will have a much better ...

Yes, you want to work with a buyer's agent, who represents you. A good agent knows about your town and can help you avoid "gotchas," like covenants and home owners associations that can limit what you can on your property. They split the commission with the seller's agent. It helps to inspect the ho...

Fixed rate mortgages are nice and predictable. Adjustable rate mortgages are not--we got a 15 year fixed rate mortgage--so the house will be paid off before I'm 55.

I have a good job and saved a lot of money by renting a very cheap apartment--so the down payment wasn't a problem. You might look at small 2 or 3 bedroom homes--not only are they cheaper, but they are likely to hold their value better than those big homes that are harder and more costly to maintain...

Another variable is the removal of the old roof. The first time a house needs new shingles, you can just put a new layer right on top of the old one. But, after you do that, you need to remove both layers before replacing the roof, significantly adding to the cost. Not only do you have to pay a crew...

She should get several quotes. In New England, about 4 years ago, ours cost around $6600--1/2 up front in cash and the balance when the job was completed.
