I'm enrolled in a weekly beginner's Tai Chi class and I am honestly truly terrible because I have co-ordination and balance issues. The class is mixed ability and quite large and I want to be able to practice on my own at home. There are tons of videos on youtube and websites but I can't tell which of them are yay! and which suck. I just want something for the first 10-15 movements so I know when to turn my wrists and when to drop the invisible ball!
I got seats to the upcoming U2 show at Soldier field. But I ended up with 4 tix, 2 seated, 2 GA. But GA has a weird code I can't figure out (*GAFL21*). Can you help me figure out which tickets to keep? [more inside]
I've signed up for a raft trip through a beautiful,wild canyon, paid my deposit and about to pay the final balance. Reading the trip prep information it says I should be prepared to pay a 'customary' fee of 15%-20% of the trip fee to the guide. I've never encountered this before from an outfitter or business and wondering how to proceed. [more inside]
I want to send Easter postcards to my 4-yo and 2-yo nieces. Any ideas of fun stuff that I can send them? Light DIY is fine (this is a shop that I can easily access).
I am looking for a durable non-toxic jewelry glue that glues metal to metal with a flexible bond and dries clear without emitting harmful fumes. [more inside]
I recently got (back) into cross-stitch and made a small sampler in a single color. It looks great and I want to keep going! Can anyone recommend books, websites, blogs, designers, etc that I can browse to find cool patterns? [more inside]
So my wife has had a toy since she was very young. As you can see, it's almost dead (my finger is included for proportions). I don't think I can find where it was made to get a replacement (see thread here), but does anyone know how I would go about getting someone to make a replica of it (there's admittedly not much left to go on, of course!)? Cheaper is better, and I'm UK based. I've looked on etsy but can't seem to find someone who will do it. Any help appreciated.
Looking for book recs (preferably fiction) that are along the lines of 1984, but with a few caveats. Looking for specific plot lines or scenes involving forced medical procedures. [more inside]
My favorite sewing expo is no longer coming to Worcester, MA, BOO!! Are there any other big sewing conventions that come to a ~500 mile radius of Boston? [more inside]
I'm totally blind, and interested in a number of tabletop games which use hexes to regulate movement. I don't have an actual tactile map at this point, but have a giant Excel spreadsheet which is a somewhat cumbersome equivalent. I'm wondering about mathematical ways to tell the distance between two hexes, given (X, Y) coordinates, and determine what hexes are in, say, a 60-degree arc from a sepcific hex? [more inside]
I want some green Connemara marble beads. (8mm, round, nice green color...) Can anyone suggest a reputable source that's not too expensive? Time isn't a factor: I can wait. [more inside]
Having bought a new DSLR camera I am trying new picture taking challenges. I'll be in St. Pete, Largo, Clearwater area for a month and would like ideas or tips for early morning night shots. No Tampa area please since I don't want to wrestle with that traffic. I have a tripod so walking is fine. Thanks.
I like to knit, but currently have a wrist injury which means I have to abstain for a while. Looking for other things to keep my hands and brain occupied while consuming various media. [more inside]
I normally shop bargain bins and veer towards minimalist shoes for road running because whenever a shoe has a rigid heel counter, I tend to wear holes in the lining within a month. I'd like to find trail worthy shoes that fit my clown feet and have that same lack of hard plastic that wraps up behind my heel. [more inside]
How do I make the most of my time in Utah? Difficulty: heat, children, wheelchair. [more inside]
I'm a college student, woman, and ethnic minority who would love to get into playing board games. I tried my university's tabletop group, but felt sort of out of place as the only newbie (as far as I could tell) and only woman. Are there any meet ups in Austin (where I am currently) or New York (where I'll be in the summer) that are diverse/inclusive and welcoming to people new to the hobby? Some more specifics inside. [more inside]
My son turns 15 today. Last night he said he wanted a fidget spinner. It seems that they are best bought on-line, but I'm really hoping I can bring one home tonight. I'm at 21st and Arch, so Center City or University City locations are most accessible. Could also hit somewhere in Lower Bucks when I get off the train. TIA
I'm looking for game recommendations for my three kids, aged 8, 6, and 3. I have some very specific parameters... [more inside]
Has anyone had a great experience learning to surf in Mexico? Please tell me where you went! [more inside]
I ran across this chess set recently and would really like to track down where it's from. There were no other identifying marks or labels that I could see.
