Salutations from the 1950's

My mother just sent me a Christmas card addressed to "Mr. and Mrs. Joe Lastname". Help me prove to her that such a salutation is outdated and that my identity didn't get swallowed up when I got hitched. [more inside]

Where in the world is my clubhouse?

I need to know the name of the street that this building (the big one in the center of the map, with the pool) is on. The number on the door is 1659, but there is no street sign, and neither google nor mapquest show the street name. (Actually, Mapquest doesn't even show the street). "What's here" in google maps gives 201-203 Mohegan Dr, which is close but not correct. Any ideas?

Avenue then street, or vice-versa?

When you state an intersection in a city that has avenues and streets (or some other system where N-S is one set and E-W is another set), is there a convention for which you name first? In other words, how should people interpret something like "9th and 11th"? If there's a convention, is it universal? Or, does it vary from city to city? [more inside]

Where do the John Does of the world live?

What are some equivalents of "123 Main Street" outside Canada and the US? I'm looking for prototypical exemplar addresses, like you might see used on a sample form, but which are still likely to exist in reality -- so, NOT something like "123 Example Street" or "123 Anystreet." I do realize this exact address format does not apply to all areas of the globe. [more inside]

Importing CSV viles into OSX

I have several hundred contacts with all sorts of information in my old OS9 outlook, which I must keep using for awhile due to our antiquated network. However, I was able to export my contacts as a "csv" file which seems to be some sort of excel spreadsheet. How do I import it into my OSX address book?

American house numbering conventions

When watching American TV and films, I often see house numbers such as 1711 or 3242 or whatever. Are the streets actually that long? Are there thousands of houses on one street? Or does the number break down into something else?
