Has anyone had any success with finding the right barrier layer to stop a memory foam mattress topper trapping too much heat? [more inside]
I've been thinking recently that it might be fun to spend 4-7 days in a warm part of North America to ring in the New Year with my girlfriend. I'd love to find a place to get away, warm up from the Chicago winter and maybe sit on a beach if I can. [more inside]
I have a weird problem: my knees get really
easily. I live in LA, and even in the middle of this unusually warm summer, the slight temperature drop at night is enough that by morning my knees are freezing and I have to put on warm sweat pants (much to the bewilderment of my wife, it being the middle of summer, and us not having AC).

I grew up in a very conservative, rigid home. Whenever my (formally invited) friends would come over, we’d end up tiptoeing around, afraid to upset the balance of the exquisitely ordered, very solemn house. In contrast, several of my friends had homes that screamed “welcome!” Please help me recreate that feeling in my first “real” apartment. [more inside]

I've given up any pretenses to dignity. Should I buy a slanket or a snuggie? [more inside]
I am a person who always feels cold in the winter. Even if I bundle up at home in the evening with a sweater, long underwear, socks and slippers, I still feel cold, and then also sweaty and clammy. The one thing that addresses this problem quickly and effectively is a shot or two of whisky (or other alcohol), but that can't be the only solution, can it? [more inside]

If layers are better for warmth (as I have been told as long as I can remember), why isn't there a blanket made out of a bunch of thin layers fastened together?
I'm born and raised in Southern California. This is a problem when the temperature drops and my excessively warm-blooded body can't handle the cold. I have a pair of fingerless glove inserts from an Army/Navy surplus store, but they're many years old and fairly intrusive anyway.
So I ask: what are the best gloves to wear while typing? [more inside]
