Source for Norwegian Sweater w/o Norwegian Designs?

I like heavy, Scandinavian sweaters in the winter (e.g., from Norwegian company "Dale"), but most are way too "ski-y" looking to wear in a business casual environment. Dale actually started offering Merino business casual pieces, but they're thin and not nearly as warm as their more traditional sweaters. Could someone suggest a company that makes thick (preferably Merino) sweaters that could be sneaked into an office environment by offering more of a classic, simple look? (To me, this means solid colors and lack of oversized ribbing or ornamentation in the knitting, which 'ruins' much of Dale's stuff.)

Getaway weekend with dogs starting in Maryland

We have until May 4 to take a 4 day weekend getaway. We live in MD and are thinking about heading South to warmer weather. We want to take out 2 dogs. They are well trained. We like places to swim with our boys. We enjoy a hike of not more than 6-8 miles. We enjoy walking places and eating at dog friendly out door cafes. Bonus points if there are doggy spas or gyms. Dog lovers please tell me about your city and why we should visit? I know about bring fido.com, but want first hand experience.

warmest, coziest, softest waterproof boots (Vancouver)

I'm working on a show right now that is shooting at night outside of Vancouver. Production has provided knock-off Uggs as warmup boots for performers, but they run small and don't fit my feet. I tried to buy myself some real live Uggs but my high arches mean I can't even get my foot in. [more inside]

Where to go for a February babymoon, someplace warm?

The husband and I would like to go on a trip in before we have our first child. Our ideal would be a relaxing and beachy vacation spot in the tropics (Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico?)—big bonus if it's a place we might want to return to in later years with our kid or kids! Specific resort/condo/hotel recommendations appreciated. [more inside]

Seeking heartwarming, non-upsetting books

I'm pregnant, and with the hormones, I am in the mood for warm-and-fuzzy books. I can't handle my normal murder mysteries. I'm especially drawn to books about families, people settling in to new communities and coming to feel at home, people creating a home for others, and that sort of thing. Books and audiobooks would be great. [more inside]

Can you recommend some good universities/colleges for me?

I am a 26 year-old Chinese girl who is living in America now holding a permanent resident card. I can speak very good English. I graduated from a university in China and my major was English and literature. I worked for a UN Wetland Project in China for a year as an interpreter and project assistant. Now I am considering to further my study and enjoying college life again. I would prefer to do my Master's Degree. But i am totally fine to just be an undergraduate student again. And the subjects or majors do not really matter too much. Subjects like languages, psychology, medicine, international relations and anything related to culture and the environment are fine with me.

In search of the warmest, waterproof-est gloves in existence

My husband works outdoors in all kinds of weather, and he's mostly fine with it, but the one thing he says he still hasn't found is a good pair of gloves that keep his hands warm and dry, but that are thin enough that he can still do things with his hands (use tools etc). In the dead of winter, when it's 33F and raining, the hands get frozen quickly. [more inside]

Warm, modern, slightly epic classical music?

So there's classical music and then there's film score music, right? What I'm looking for is something in the middle that sounds modern, epic, but not overly bombastic (as cool as it can be, I'm not looking for Two Steps from Hell). Also, major bonus points if it's not actually from an existing film and not too purposely calming (by which I mean no whale sounds etc. the music I'm looking for would be calming but that shouldn't be it's reason for existing). A good example of what I'm looking for is this track from the second Thor soundtrack after the 50 second mark.

Women's coat warm as Canada Goose, but not Canada Goose. And stylish.

I love to walk to and from work, all year long, and this requires a warm coat. My current coat doesn't keep me as reliably toasty as I'd like. I want something as warm as a Canada Goose coat, but I don't want that brand - i want something that every second person (in toronto) isn't already wearing, and that is (if possible) slightly more urban/stylish/flattering, and less sporty/functional looking. In particular, i really don't want a big logo/badge on it, as all Canada Goose coats do. I absolutely want a down-filled coat, though. (I've never seen a wool coat that is anywhere near as warm as down.) Bonus points for something available at a retail store in Toronto (or possibly NYC, which i visit occasionally), and that costs $700 or less.

Warm clothes for an older lady

My mother is in assisted living, so she's inside much of the time, but has no control over the temperature of the building, and likes to walk outside when she can. She's asked me to find warm clothes for her to wear. I got her some fleece cardigans, but I'm having a hard time finding warm pants which are simple: pull on, no buttons or zippers. Difficulty level: petite, and not too expensive or fancy. She does have long johns, but simpler is probably better. Other suggestions of warming clothing are welcome, too.
