Can you start a new business ( private cooking classes) in Asheville, nc

I am considering moving to Asheville and hear a lot about how hard it is to make a living there and how over saturated it is already with entrepreneurs. I am in my mid 50's and have been a successful private chef who is now teaching cooking in various small schools and in private homes. I am not thrilled with the northeast weather and thought of Asheville as a relocation spot. Having just visited there it seemed there is a lot of food buzz going on- I know it's a "foodie" town and think I might be able to succeed there. I am concerned about the rising cost of buying a house in the area and that I could find enough work there. Any input?

Oh no you didn't

Recently in a social situation I was asked my thoughts on a budgeting item and I gave it along with a solution that I had given thought to and was planning on presenting to the budget chair. (We work in different departments but run things past each other on occasion). One of the people at the gathering was a woman with political ambitions for our small town. A few days later she wrote a letter to the editor that gave my exact idea. What would you do? On the plus side it was very well received, OTH it was mine. I realize I should have said nothing and it was my mistake. I figure people that were there would know it wasn't hers and hopefully someone will point that out. Can I address it or should I leave it?

How do I gently ask my professors to send in the letters of rec they agreed to write? T

How do I gently ask my professors to send in the letters of rec they agreed to write? They are past the deadline I gave them . And, I am freaking out bc my applications cannot be reviewed by grad schools until the letters are sent in. What makes things more complicated for me is the fact that I just asked my profs in Jan for these letters, and I did ask them to save the letters. Well, I did not receive generous aid packages, so I am reapplying to another school which could fully fund me. so this is a huge deal! So I asked them again in October to resubmit the letters, and it makes me feel bad like I am burdening and bothering them, but now i am anxious that i don't have the letters. This is very worrisome to me because I do not want my application to not be submitted in time, and there are early application deadlines that I need to meet in order to be considered for merit awards

what does this old guy mean by "take advantage of" a young woman?

An old guy (friend/acquaintance) kindly invited me to sleep at his house when I needed a place to sleep one night. I'm a female in my 20's and he was probably in his 60's. He told me he had a couch and a bed (his bed). He said I can sleep on the bed. So I said "oh, you can sleep on the bed." of course implying that I would sleep on his couch. He misunderstood and apparently thought I meant we would sleep together on the bed. So he says, "Oh no, I don't want to take advantage of you, so you sleep on the bed and I take the couch." I was a little weirded out by him saying this. Is this normal? What do you think he meant by "take advantage of" me? ...umm have sex? No, right? I just have a hard time believing that he would even think of something like that to do with someone that is so much younger than him. Is this creepy or not really? I ended up not going, btw.

I breathe deeply and their muscles relax. Why?

Please explain the science behind this phenomenon. I want to know about the effect MY deep breathing has on the release of my clients' muscle tension. I have experienced and observed distinct differences between when I am deeply breathing, and when I default to shallow chest breathing. When I breathe deeply, their muscles release tension and relax, opening more and "melting" more to my work. It's quite remarkable. [more inside]

How to persuade them?

1938 Rose Bowl Program value?

While helping a widowed lady friend clean out her attic and closets for a move, we found an old Rose Bowl program for the 1938 game between Alabama and California. After exhausting all combinations of phrasing for searching Google and eBay, I'm coming to you. What makes this program different is that the cover is a black and white version of the official program—but this program was published by the Student Association of University of California. Does anyone know anything about this program? My friend is eager to "get rid" of stuff and is donating most of what we're finding to thrift shops or charity. But a few items we're unsure of value—if any—and thought someone on MetaFilter might know. Thanks!

Which dvd editions of Silence of the Lambs and Manhunter are the best quality?

I am looking for the best DVD (not Blu-Ray) prints of Silence of the Lambs and Manhunter. I know Lambs had a Criterion issue and regular issue, a 2-disc issue and perhaps more. Manhunter had a 2-disc issue (orange cover), a single issue, and perhaps others. I currently have the Hannibal Lector trilogy, which is all three movies in slimline cases with no extras. I am not sure if they are the same prints that come in single issue cases or if my prints are the high quality. When I say "best", I am referring to best picture quality first and then extras. I am not sure if newer issues lime my slimline set necessarily have the best picture or not simply because they are newer. My slimline set is just the bare bones movies, btw. So best print and if any extras that would be great. I know Criterion has commentary on Silence.

But tell me, is Charlie Hunnam (who I know is a Brit, by the way) swaggering as part of the role he plays (Jax) , or is he limping because of a real-life disability, or does he just walk that way? Once I noticed, it started driving me nuts. Have unearthed zippo on the web.

Anxiety or something worse?

Wife has shortness of breath- should we be worried? My wife is 29 and physically healthy (eats relatively well and exercises), but recently has shortness of breath on and off. It doesn't seem like a panic attack, as she has no other panic attack symptoms. However, she starts to get scared when its happening which makes it worse. It happens throughout the day on and off for a few weeks and then stops for months at a time. Could this just be stress, or something more serious?
