Dear Abby | Work assignment abroad makes waves back home

Dear Abby: I took an assignment with my company that posted me to Hong Kong for two years. My adult children, ages 21, 26 and 29, were supportive, although my youngest was not especially happy about it. We video chat with our kids, trying to stay involved as much as possible. We have also visited multiple times. It’s not always ideal, but we try. We have also offered to pay for them to visit us as often as they would like.

Local indie bookstore celebrates 25 years

A Book For All Seasons was born in Leavenworth 25 years ago, making it older than Beanie Babies, DVDs and Justin Bieber. But some would say it was born, in concept, when a 5-yr-old Pat Rutledge began writing down, in her very special notebook, the names of books she dreamed would someday sit on the shelves of her very own bookstore.

Dear Abby | Friend with benefits turns out to be a disappointment

Dear Abby: I have known this guy “Noah” for six years. We’re mostly just friends with benefits, but I’ve always had deeper feelings for him. I always wanted to see where things could go between us, so I mentioned it to him. He told me that if he didn’t already have a girlfriend, he would have dated me. So when they broke up, I waited patiently.

Cooking with kids: Making mac and cheese from scratch

If your household includes children, you likely lost count long ago of the number of bowls of macaroni and cheese you’ve made, ordered at restaurants, microwaved or poured out of a box. As if by some collective agreement, the stuff becomes locked into our food psyches from an absurdly early age, the very definition of comfort food.

Flute glasses are pretty, but they’re ruining your Champagne

I gave up the flute years ago. It was a pretty easy decision to make, since I was seeing so many other people giving it up. They were drinking sparkling wine from — brace yourself — regular wine glasses. And it was awesome.
