"I'm a woman with 40 minutes to kill at the end of a long work week, so I'll weigh in. It sounds like you've got your walls under control with framing movie posters. Nothing wrong with posters but framed is much classier than…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Dave KG's discussion What are the most influential character-developing books you've read?
"I agree that To Kill a Mockingbird describes some manly virtues and particularly, the character of Atticus Finch offers much to be commended and perhaps emulated. I also think Plato's Republic, and other Socratic dialogues, as well as the…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Matthew Palardy's discussion The confirmed bachelor: a dying breed?
"Could you ask the admins to lock it then? There is no way for someone like me to know that is no longer a valid topic for discussion (given that the last response was yesterday). How about getting it locked if further responses are unwelcome? "

Rachel Klingberg replied to Matthew Palardy's discussion The confirmed bachelor: a dying breed?

Rachel Klingberg replied to L. Wapelhorst's discussion Ma'am or Miss?

Rachel Klingberg replied to Dave Peyton's discussion Stealing another man's girlfriend?
"No. Wait until the relationship ends, then pursue her. It's not okay to be complicit in her infidelity, no matter how fun it may seem. You are hurting another man and that is wrong, even if the man is a total stranger. It may be that…"

Advice re abusive boyfriend of ex

My ex has been dating an alcoholic abusive policemen on and off for about 4 years.  After she sued him for damages related to an injury from his drunken rage, they parted ways for a year and a half but now appear to be back together.  She is keeping him away from our sons (now 11 and 13) but her personality changes a lot when they are together.  She disconnects maternally from our sons and becomes combative to me and her family of origin.  Unless there is some trauma to boys, I don’t have good…See More
