My grandmother taught me that a game of bridge can be vicious and cut throat, but she didn't teach me what it takes to host a card game. A couple of friends are coming over Saturday night to play cards (probably bridge, but we might play hearts euchre) and I don't know what to provide other than paper for scoring, a table, and a deck of cards. What food or drinks should I serve? [more inside]
When I was growing up, my family and I played a card game we called Bid Bridge. I've tried looking online to find out the rules and scoring but I just keep finding similar games (Whist, Napoleon, etc) that are almost-but-not-quite the same. How do you play this game? [more inside]
My Dad is heading to hospice, and one of his passions while I was a child is bridge. He amassed a library of books - 15 linear feet or so - for this card game beginning in 70's-80's, with a few more recent titles. (Details below) [more inside]
I'm trying to find a way that I can play bridge with specific people online (preferably for free). While visiting my hometown I started playing bridge regularly with some of my family members. Now I have moved away and we would like to continue over the internet. In my googling I've found sites that have online bridge with real players, but I haven't found anything specifically saying that you can choose those players yourself. Does anyone have any experience with this?
I'm looking for recommendations of the best resources to learn how to use Adobe Bridge. Are there any particularly helpful guides in book form or online that you've used? Am looking for something comprehensive and up-to-date. Thank you!
My mother, who is a good person and has a masters degree, accidentally swallowed a temporary bridge. Now she, um, has retrieved it. She wants to know if she can clean it herself (by soaking it in alcohol or something) and pop it back in, without calling the dentist about it, which she doesn't want to do because reasons. However, she's worried that she'll be unable to sterilize it properly and will make herself sick by putting in her mouth something that has been through her digestive tract. She's counting on me, and therefore you, to find out how to clean it properly. Or to tell her there's no way. Anyone?

I want to improve my digital photo organization at work, and I don't care about anything in iPhoto except Events. Unfortunately, I really appreciate being able to visually browse Events as a central database of every photo upload ever. It feels like there's no easy visual browsing in the Adobe suite, is this true? Should I just get better at using keywords in Bridge, or is there something magical in Lightroom that I don't know about? [more inside]

After doing some research, I can't seem to quite find an answer to this. A friend and I would like to play bridge together online, and would like the two other players to be computer-generated. Anyone know of where we can do this? The sites that I have looked at seem to be all live players, or else you can play against the computer alone.
A relative of mine is having the entirety of her teeth replaced by what I think is called an implant-supported bridge. I'm caring for her the day of the surgery, but 1) I'm not super-awesome, or anyway, super-intuitive at nursing people 2) I'm not at ALL familiar with this type of procedure 3) Said relative is very ashamed of the situation and thus VERY vague about the actual terms, details, and recovery situation. She...tends to be a little in denial about stuff, I tend to take her statements with a grain of salt. So I would appreciate anything you all can offer in terms of advice, or in procedure-specific tips and information. [more inside]

Can anyone recommend a friendly bridge (the card game) club in San Francisco? I wouldn't mind taking an intro class to brush up, since my knowledge of both conventions and strategy are pretty slipshod and semi-self-taught. Ideally there would be a critical mass minority of younger folks (let's say <30) around.
This past weekend I drove from Los Angeles to Tucson via Interstate-10, and took to noticing the names of the various ditches and washes that are spanned by the highway out in the middle of the high lonesome desert. There are a lot of them. Ghost Ditch, Taro Ditch, Larry Ditch, Stubby Wash, Fornat Wash, Itta Wash, Edom, Mccoy, Rollie, Bula, Sutro, Calotus, Esso, Arco, Teed, Turala, maybe a hundred between the ditches and the washes. The names don't seem to refer to nearby municipalities (there aren't any) or other geographical features, and are clearly part of the National Bridge Inventory. How were these 'waterways' named? Who named them? Were they named before the freeway required infrastructure to pass over them, or during the construction process, or when the NBI was implemented, or after the fact altogether?

Bridging a Cisco router thru a Verizon FiOS Actiontec router to improve WiFi speed: worth the trouble and, if so, how?
My FiOS speed is a blazing 75Mb/s thru a wire but only about 30-35Mb/s wireless. Verizon tells me that this is all I can expect through their Actiontec modem/router. Can I improve this WiFi speed by bridging my Cisco EA4500 thru the FiOS router? If so, can anyone provide me with a step-by-step way to re-configure the FiOS router to allow for the bridge? All of the resources I can find on-line are confusing and don't cover my specific situation. All help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
