My mom just had her third surgery to repair hip tendons and its expected that she will not be able to go anywhere without 2 crutches for 6-8 weeks. Besides limiting mobility, it also means that she won't be able to cook for some time--her lifelong passion and joie de vivre, besides plants.
If she were nearby i would go spend time with her, but she's across the Atlantic (France, I'm in the US).
I'm trying to think of ways to cheer her up, make life easier, ease the tedium. [more inside]

How to learn historic rehabilitation?
I'm interested in the historic home curatorship program
in Massachusetts. Essentially, you take over a home owned by the state and rehabilitate it without having to pay rent.
However, to be successful, you really need to have lots of skills related to construction and historic curatorship.
I'd like to acquire this skills, any tips on how to do it?

Back in the day, I had a black leather motorcycle jacket painted up in the usual punk style: Big back patch, studs, spikes, chains, the works. I'm older now, and I'd like to keep the jacket while getting rid of the youthful excess that covers it.
How do I rehabilitate my old leather jacket? [more inside]

I pulled my hamstring in June, right where the top of the ham hits the inner glute--not quite in the crotch but almost there. It wasn't bad, but I decided to take time off to let it heal. But no matter how much time I take off, as soon as I start working out again it starts hurting again! What do I do? [more inside]
