Advice for the bride

Help me come up with some cute or funny advice for a bride-to-be. It's for one of those activities at a bridal shower where everyone writes little bits of advice in a book for her to keep, along with a recipe. I can't stand the usual "let him think he's in charge" old-fashioned sexist stuff, and I think she'd appreciate a joke or a quote or something that's a bit more up to date than that. [more inside]

Going from 12 Years on the Mac to a Windows XP Notebook

Beginning this week, I will start using a Windows XP notebook as my home computer; to date my personal computers have been Macs. I've done some preliminary research as to Windows alternatives to programs, but I'd appreciate three areas of people's suggestions: (i) general tips for owning a Windows machine as your home machine; (ii) specific tips for people migrating from a Mac to a Windows machine; and (iii) critiques and/or alternate suggestions for Windows alternatives to the Mac programs I've used.

How to support a grieving family.

Sadly I lost a friend to a long battle with cancer last night, her husband and teenage children are without any extended family in the area and will rely on some of us for the next while. Two things: 1 - Can you tell me of things that friends and family have done for you in similar circumstances that really helped at the time: large, small, immediately, over days, weeks, months, whatever. We'll sort out food, the pets and cleaning the house but what else can we do? 2 - Any advice on striking the right balance between giving them their space to grieve and being there to support to them?

Where to watch Maryland/Houston in SF tonight?

To SF MeFites: Where's a good place to catch March Madness today? I particularly want to see the Maryland/Houston game around 6:30 tonight. 'Good' here is defined by cheap beer and the chance to occasionally hear some commentary. Proximity to BART a plus, willing to travel to Oakland.
