NewYorkCityFilter: I'm headed to New York City this weekend, staying midtown. It's somewhat spur of the minute but I was wondering if any MeFites have suggestions of current things to do, places to eat and drink, etc. I love trying new places, eats, visual, audible, sensual stimulations. Anything discussed on Mefi recently? Thanks.

I seem to have a very particular social skills deficit. Can you suggest software that might serve as a kind of brain prosthetic for me? [more inside]

I am NOT good at setting boundaries with people. For example I have a male neighbor who is as nice as he can be but is VERY talkative and boring to me. He drops by our house unannounced and has hours to spend talking with me. I have to cut him off and I am not good at it. [more inside]

Little sister is working on a project and need to find sources that can help her identify several things for railroad workers, meatpacking plant workers, a Rockefeller employee, and a business employing child labor from 1885-1910. The things she needs are their job responsibilities, wages, number of hours, conditions of the workplace.

I own a home in the mountains of WNC. It is large and old (1895) and in fair condition. Fortunately, (and unfortunately), it is in an area that is experiencing a lot of influx by wealthy folks fleeing whatever. It is time to begin thinking about my next life.

I'm presently completing a B.A. on Psychology (via distance learning) with the intentions of continuing towards a Masters in Clinical Social Work. I have a couple of questions:
1) I'm 42 years old and have done back to school as a career changer. I have a wife and daughter and need to work part time while I'm a full time student. Does anyone have any suggestions for work which might help with graduate schools looking at both my academic and work background? All of my previous work experience involves working with people, but not much similar to work a therapist would be engaged in (worked for last 8 years as a talent agent)
2) Does anyone know which cities offer the greatest potential for work as a clinical social worker as I hope to eventually open a private practice, but will work in hospital or mental health facility while gaining experience?

OK I am arriving in LAX (and the US) for the first time *ever* on a Sunday morning next month. Once I pick up my rental car I am headed out to the Howard Johnson at Anaheim. This would not be so stressful if it weren't the first time that I will drive a car with the steering wheel on the other side (I am from Australia, we drive on the left here). What tips can anyone give me on a) how to successfully navigate from LAX to Anaheim, and b) driving on the "other" side of the road? Thanks heaps :-)

I'm working on becoming a better person in all aspects of life. One area that I severely lack in is being friendly to the environment. I would like to start off small and began recycling everyday household trash. But how do I begin? Is there a straight forward newbie guide to recycling? What other small steps can I take that would have a big impact on the environment?

After several years, I am finally upgrading and purchasing a new computer. My dilemma is moving files onto this new computer. My operating system on both computers is Windows XP.
1. I need advice moving my Thunderbird Email and Email folders onto this new computer. I understand that emails are really embedded and can be a problem. I also need assistance moving my FIREFOX bookmarks. I would really hate to loose those bookmarks!
2. I then plan to copy all my document files onto a CD using Nero and then recopying to the new computer.
3. I plan to go through the arduous task of reinstalling all my programs. That is my plan; however, I want to insure I am not overlooking a vital task!
I really do need assistance moving my email and bookmark files.
If I have missed anything, please advise.
Thanks in advance.
