And while 21 Clarendon was a little unusual and suffering from some previous bad renovations, “we fell in love with the curved windows," Ms. Labelle said. "It’s the perfec...

Challenges: Bathrooms Evolving

Bathrooms have certainly come a long way from the crescent moon carved in the door of the quaint (if scented) privy out on the south forty, and the communal tub by the kitchen fireplace! © Provided by Lake County Record-Bee (Photo courtesy of Robert Boccabella) Function can include beauty — even in our most personally pragmatic Interior space! Time passed, and in many of the stately old Victorian homes, the “evolved” bathrooms consisted of several small rooms in close proximity; one for the water closet and commode, one for a sink with counter and cabinets and one for the bathtub!   Of course, there were variations on those themes and configurations, in order to accommodate all the functions of ablution at that time in history.

The truth about the Junk Drawer on Home Improvement

Beyond what Richardson deemed the "stupid stuff that most people didn't notice," the drawer that held literally everything was only one of the many details she shared about the funny hijinks of the show's earlier years.  "It was always funny and crazy. And when I think of the funny and crazy things I think of the early years," Richardson recounted. "Pasquin would have the kids on roller skates, skating through the set. We had this idea of Tim walking into the fridge, we had a snake on the set, and the snake crawled out of the wall and through Tim's shirt. We were all hysterical." With so much that Richardson enjoyed about working on the show, the prospect of stepping in front of the camera with her former castmates once again seems like something she'd be up for.

How to both work and school from home – bdnews24.com

Then everything shut down, and the Ausmans began living, working and learning in the same space. Alex’s ballet barres rest against a wall in the kitchen; each member of the family has set up a small work space facing a different wall of the apartment. Without a change of location, the hours tend to bleed together. “It’s a never-ending day,” Ausman said.A similar scene unfolded in homes across the country, as parents spent the spring balancing their jobs and the demands of their children’s remote schooling. Now, those who are able to continue working from home are preparing to do it again. It’s daunting, managing the elements that add to what psychologists call the “mental load”: remote schooling, as well as a career, household tasks and the invisible work that all place demands on a paren...
