    It's all in a farcical day's work in SCR's 'Taking Steps'
    There's nothing like a British farce to make you feel stubbornly, even condescendingly American. Oh, the English, with their love of bawdy adolescent silliness -- clearly the Freudian flip-side of a stiff-upper-lip severity. As for the French door-...

    As trendsetting time periods go, the '70s were the best of times (the Bicentennial, roller disco) and the worst of times (we repeat, the Bicentennial, roller disco). The decade also spawned enduring styles for the home. Some were classic designs that...
  • Sssssolutions that are so repelling

    Here's a nut-brain idea: Stop killing things. Toss aside those reflexive and lowly habits, and start using nonlethal techniques to keep pests out of your garden. Too nutty? Most organic gardening concerns itself with nontoxic (to humans and pets, at...
