Ask Mr. Dad | Some lessons for son’s transition to middle school

Dear Mr. Dad: My son is starting middle school next week. His previous school was K-5 so this is a new one for him. He’s nervous and, honestly, so am I. He’s a smart kid but has always had trouble finishing assignments and turning work in on time. I’m worried that if he does the same in middle school, he’ll be setting himself up for even more trouble in high school and beyond. What can I do to help him (and myself) get ready for this big transition?

Instead, it was the most humiliating experience I have ever had. I dressed in a beautiful negligee, and my husband didn’t even take a second look at me. I was so embarrassed, I rolled over and pretended to fall asleep. That was my big night, the one night I’ll never get again.

Summer salads: Recipes for lovers of meat and potatoes

Even as I attempt to eat less red meat, I still crave steak. During the summer months, its virtues suit our lifestyles. Steak cooks quickly, is easy to transport to a picnic and tastes great hot, warm and chilled. Leftovers make indulgent sandwiches. Grilled steak, piled on garden-crisp greens topped with a freshly made dressing, ranks as a favorite dinner on a warm evening.

In the Garden | Put the smoosh on those pesky garden stinkbugs

Stinkbugs! Even the name is repulsive. This insect scourge loves the warm weather, and it seems its favorite treat is tomatoes. It actually can be found on any type of fruit beginning with raspberries in the spring and continuing to pears in the fall.

Don’t forget the change order

It's just a piece of paper, often only one sheet, and different companies write it up different ways. Yet when needed, the change order could prove the only thing that stands between you and hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of misunderstanding — or worse, unauthorized work that inflates the price of a project.
