I’ve held many jobs in my day and learned lessons from every one of them. People who wait tables are the most fun people on the planet. Cubicles can steal your soul. And telemarketing is fun if you give yourself a fake name and have plans to find a new job ASAP.

Men are classically bad at recognizing women's hints, and because women are generally more socially "in tune," they wonder why we can’t see what seems obvious to them.

There are no greater heroes than stepparents. A stepparent agrees (gladly) to fill another parent's shoes. Sure, the good part is being in a loving, committed relationship with your new spouse. But the bad and sometimes even ugly parts of stepparenting are often lurking close-by. When signing up for marriage, a new stepparent might overlook the fine print.

JURASSIC PARK — We all remember the intensity of the anticipation of Christmas break when we were kids. Nothing could be better than the thought of no school mingled with the visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads.

When the Federal Reserve was established in 1913, over 30,000 different currencies were in some type of use throughout the United States. The lack of a uniform currency contributed to systemic weaknesses in the monetary system, including bank runs, unstable interest rates and prices, and an overall lack of confidence in banking institutions. Thanks to its capacity to mitigate each of the aforementioned issues, along with many others, the Federal Reserve has played a key role in stabilizing the United States economy.

Common wisdom might dictate that it’s dangerous for couples raised in different economic classes to get hitched; different financial upbringings will likely lead to arguments over budgets, spending habits, etc., and financial issues are often cited as a major cause of divorce.

I spent the past six years having babies. Granted, there were short breaks interspersed in there, but I spent most of my time focused on pregnancy, infants and nursing. Not exactly an ideal time to start buying up a bunch of clothes, what with my weight bouncing up and down 40 pounds every other year. With the arrival of our third son last summer, I took a baby break and looked around my much-neglected closet.

Our recent front page story on homelessness in Kershaw County highlighted a part of our community we sometimes don't want to think about, much less see. We suspect it's because of homeless stereotypes: those who live on the streets or in their cars with no job or prospect of one whether due to poor life choices or ill luck.

The grumbles resonated from the kitchen. The sound wasn't particularly loud or piercing at least in the beginning. I guess you could describe it as a low, irregular whine of sorts. I walked in and there he was -- my 11-year old son slumped over his math sheet looking as if the world would end if he did not finish the problems before him. Of course, he was absolute in the fact his mom could not help him with this "math Armageddon." He insisted he would fight this battle alone. I thought to myself, "Does anyone like math? He must ...
