My daughter is 5 and she is going to be quite a bit shorter than average. I'm worried she will go through a stage of being pretty sad about this.* Can you help me provide examples of when being small is a good way to be? For example, being small can help find really great hiding spots in "Hide and go seek." Mom and dad can pick her up and swing her around more easily. Any other ideas? [more inside]

When I'm using Google Sheets, entering words and strings of words in it, fairly often, when I hit return or tab to move to the next cell, the row height will suddenly double. This happens at least 1/4 of the time now, and it never happened in the past. [more inside]
I have Windows 8.1. There's one program I use that enforces a window height that is the exact height of my screen. If the taskbar is visible, the bottom part of the window is obscured behind it. If I auto-hide the taskbar, the window fits perfectly. Problem is, I like keeping the taskbar visible. Is there any way to hide it only when this program is running? [more inside]

I am looking for something like these for our backyard. They need to be designed for outdoor use and rain. You can find similar ones online, but since these are really heavy, the shipping costs are as much as the mats. Are there any local retailers in the bay area that will sell small quantities to an individual? I have Amazon Prime but have not found anything Prime-eligible that looks decent.

I have read on the internet many times that you can gain a few inches in "height" from doing yoga. How exactly does this happen? (Just spine getting straighter, and me standing with better posture?) Are there any actual measurements done on a sample of people before and after months of yoga to compare their height differential? What is actually a reasonable expectation for an "increase in height"? If my goal is yoga for height increase, which poses are the best to do? Thanks

I have been dating a man for just over a month that I met online. He is 41 and I am 33. He is simply lovely: kind, attentive, complimentary, generous, funny, smart, gainfully employed, family oriented and wants children, likes me a lot, socially/environmentally conscientious, cooks well, nice sense of style, has friends, etc. And, I'm not very physically attracted to him. I am 5'2" and his profile says he is 5'7" but I think he exaggerated ~two inches and has a slight frame. He is very fit, but the cave woman in me seeks a more commanding physical partner. There are other things about his physicality and bedside manner that don't "do it" for me, either, but the main thing is that I just prefer bigger men. [more inside]
I'm 6'5". It recently dawned on me that the reason I hate doing the dishes isn't due to my fundamental laziness, but because scrubbing dishes while bent over for half an hour really does a number on my back.
