I am in my late 30s and have always been nearsighted/myopic. My prescription is -7.25 with (I am told a lot of) astigmatism. My vision is starting to change...I can see bifocals on the distant horizon. [more inside]

How soon do you realize that the person you are with is the one you are marring? I am sure everyone is different and have a different opinion about this but, I just started to seeing this guy(we both are in 40s), we are doing great, we've been together every day since the day we met. I'm at his house every night and waking up with him every morning. So the things are more than great. But the bottom line is, I only have known him for 2 months. Yes we know alot about each other, he's trying to learn about me fastest he can. I see that every day. but 2 month is still 2 month. [more inside]

Recently divorced, 39, and moving from MA to MT in early Sept. I was planning on driving along the I-90. I'm trying to figure out what is worth visiting, and also where to stop/camp along the way. This is about a 3000 mile drive. And I'm hoping to drive around 600 miles a day, but this is adjustable to some extent. I wouldn't mind spending extra days in some locations if its worthwhile. One stop I plan to make will be Niagra Falls. (I also have both USA and Canadian Passports, so I can cross the border ok.) I hope to camp most of the way. I also have a large 80lb doberman-mix, which complicates things slightly. I'd be willing to get off the I-90 to see some things if its worth it. I'm not in a rush.. I'm more interested in things found in nature rather than city-life type stuff. But stopping in some big cities for some notable food or sites wouldn't be rejected outright.

One of my eyes adjusts to darkness much faster than the other. In fact, I'm pretty much blind in one eye for at least half an hour after the lights go out. I've always had this and assumed it was just me. But it turns out my mother has this as well. I'm not worried about it, but what is it? [more inside]
When and why did it become the convention that blind people would wear dark glasses? Would the purpose be to hide the eyes or to act as a signifier of blindness? Is it something that is done less these days and what are the reasons why?

I think they were comb or spiral bound. [more inside]
