I recollect reading or hearing a story within the past year or so in which I learned that one can acquire a permit or license from the city (I think it was Philadelphia, my city, but it could have been another city) that allows one to perform the duties of what I would call a "citizen arborist", e.g., if a tree branch were to be busted by a passing vehicle, said citizen arborist would be empowered to perform proper pruning on the spot on said tree for the greater health and well-being of the tree and its neighborhood. I find this so appealing and want to see if I can get that license, but I'm not sure how to start?

Two part question. Would like to access US only websites from the UK (like Pandora) through a VPN service (currently using HotSpot Shield, don't like the ad's). Would also like to use VPN service whilst still being able to access UK only websites like iPlayer at the same time (in another browser or tab). Willing to pay.

Going on a last minute trip to Portland Oct 5 through 9 and looking for a good hotel in the downtown area for my husband and self. I'm hoping to find something nice, must have wifi, under 200 (preferably closer to 100) walkable to downtown stuff, and on the quiet side. We are there for the Guided by Voices show. I've never been to portland and have no idea what is there except they have a big bookstore I want to go to. Any suggestions for stuff to do in downtown area would be great - I will be doing more research online but I'm so tired from working since 5 am I can't stare at a screen anymore. thanks so much!

I buy fruit at the market for my toddler, but he doesn't always like it. Today's blackberries were too sour. Last week the apples were mealy. Sometimes the bananas get over-ripe before we can eat them all. What easy things can I do to transform "bad" fruit into other things that are still healthy for a kid?

Why is it that after breaking up with a guy six weeks ago whom I seriously dated for over a year (it was mutual and no drama, just kind of sad, bad timing) that I feel like I am cheating on him if I go out with someone else? And I have been asked out by some really great guys, but I don't want to go ... I really don't think I am still in love with the former BF but I thought by now I would at least want to go on a date ... I am guessing this is just a waiting game, things will change eventually but I am hoping for words of wisdom to help me move on ...
