My SO and I (unmarried) are combining two apartments into one. We both currently have renters insurance of our own, each from our own car insurance company (not the same company). We are not interested in combining our car insurance under one account. Should we get renters insurance for both of us from one of our car insurance companies, or should we each retain our separate renters insurance that covers "my own stuff"?

I moved into an apartment in a Victorian house last Friday and about 5 minutes after I start moving in I realize that the windows are in terrible shape. The wood frames have rotted, some windows don't open, some don't close. At least one had a broken frame like it broke when someone was trying to shit the window. A couple have cracked panes. Probably half of them are missing the locking mechanisms so I can't lock them. [more inside]

I'm at my wits end and not sure what I can do about this. My downstairs neighbors are hosting prostitutes. I wish I were making this up. There are a couple of regular prostitutes that go there fairly often. It usually ends with them fighting with the guys downstairs. Tonight there were about 8 guys waiting outside my building which I thought was odd, but what ever. They leered at me as I walked past and one of them turned to the guy who lives there and he shook his head 'no'. An hour and a half later, there was an altercation out back and I heard/ watched the whole fight which involved the prostitute demanding her money and her skirt and hollering about being butt nekid so there was no way she stole anything. Her pimp arrived and scared the guy and the still shirtless guy gave her the money (and her skirt). The prostitute hollered to the guy as she walked away that she warned him that she had a tracking device on her. [more inside]

I am looking for a good place to go camping for a long weekend in August on Cape Cod. It could also be a rental cottage but by tradition we go camping so a campground is preferable. It's a memorial of sorts and there is a high chance of drinking and toasting till the wee hours... There are about 6 of us and we're looking for something that allows for a little privacy. I would prefer to be near Provincetown, if possible. Any suggestions?
