Can I salvage my headshot?

A headshot was recently taken of me by a friend, in front of an orange brick wall with a repeating interlocking Greek meander pattern (here is an example).

Last-minutefilter: Where can I take Mom in Denver for her 96th birthday?

It's today. I know I should have started planning earlier - I was thinking I'd just get her some flowers and a card and take her to brunch, but now I want to make it special. I still have not gotten into the habit of thinking "This may be the last time ..." but it's true. I want her to go back to her independent living facility feeling well fed, well feted, happy to be 96 and loved. [more inside]

Can you read/translate this Danish-language handwriting?

I have a photograph of my 3-greats grandfather, who was born in Denmark in 1848 and died in Iowa in 1926. There's text on the reverse of the image that is in Danish. I don't know what it says. Do you? Difficulty level: old person's crabbed handwriting. Thanks!

Replacement knobs for old receiver - DIY or other?

I am thinking of getting a friend's old Realistic receiver (Realistic STA-65C, I think). I am not of the nature that I need an exact model replacement of the treble knob and am curious if there is a place online or a store like Home Depot or Radio Shack that might sell knobs that could fit or made to fit.

Poem ID: two lovers meet in a shop and touch hands over handkerchiefs

I've thus far been unable to find this poem online given only the lines I remember.

And there's a line about the shopkeeper being in the back so he doesn't notice... [more inside]

Unemployment after voluntary retirement

I have new direct management and what was an occasionally unpleasant job has turned into a nightmare of forced meetings and overhead I've never had to deal with and won't in any way help me in my work.

How do we best donate to the family of a deceased colleague?

A friend and colleague recently passed away leaving behind two very young children. Although she did not have a substantial income, she was by far the primary wage earner for her household. Many of us at work and elsewhere are interested in contributing to the immediate support of her family and the future education of her children. Does anyone have suggestions about what the best mechanism(s) would be for doing this? Our office is in Maryland, and she and her family were residents as well.

More storage for some free Google Apps users only?

We use the free Google Apps at our non-profit for about 5 heavy users who have hit storage limits, 30 light and another 30+ who need to access our Google Drive and other domain-limited sites. Previously we switched heavy users to a new account with access to the previous account, plus forwards as a work-around. Google's helpdesk says upgrade only as we're non-US. Does anyone have a better solution? We use Google spreadsheets and several marketplace apps, and otherwise are super-happy with Google but $4000/annually is a big upgrade bill!

Psychic surgery - is it real or fake?

So I've been a spiritual healer for a couple of years now and I wonder what direction to steer it in. Whilst talking to a senior, she mentioned 'psychic surgery', but didn't go into it at all. And as soon as I type 'psychic surgery' into Google, I have a Wikipedia page saying it has been disproved. I know you shouldn't believe every word on Wikipedia, especially with subjects that are going to be relying on information from people with heavily biased views; in the same way that when you mention spiritual healing to some people they call it black magic and do not want to talk about it ever again with you.

Is The Gigs Place in Dublin gone for good?

Dubliners, or anyone who's been to Dublin recently and knows what I'm talking about: has The Gigs Place closed up shop for good? I'm pretty sure they have, but can't find anything more definitive than Yelp saying they're closed (Yelp has been wrong on that front before), and a lack of Facebook postings from 2013 on. Any other info would be helpful, for instance: was their building and/or late-night license taken up by someone else under a different name? Thanks in advance!
