The gathering of womenalso took a moment to dis-cuss each decade and thememorable trends and fadsthat they remember fromthat time period. Event-goers also reflected on thelook of women today. In2013, less is more is no lon-ger the trend as women notedthat the pairing of manyprints and colors together isbecoming the new look.The decorated tablesfor the luncheon were eachsponsored by local organiza-tions that offer services towomen.

Answers in Monday’s Herald.
A friend’s refrigerator went out last weekafter only seven years of use. According to anappliance guy, that was about right.I can remember having the same avacodogreen refrigerator in our kitchen for umpteenyears. It wasn’t really bad when we got rid of it; it was just so old that it was a pretty goodbet it would give out over the weekend or atsome other inopportune time. It was relegatedto the garage and a shiny new one took itsplace.The same can be said for the range top.It was set in the countertop and had a reallycool control panel on the wall. A modern,black, flat cook top took its place and cometo find out, its life expectancy is only aboutseven years. The old cook top made it through20-some years before it became a question-able risk. It even survived through a smallChristmas Eve fire when I left papers a littletoo close to a burner and a button was inadver-tently pushed by an errant item on the counter.Luckily, the mess was quickly swept into thenearby sink and doused with water.Many other household items have joinedthe “disposable” list. Washers and dryers,DVD players, boom boxes, TVs and like areno longer “fixtures” in our homes.It makes me wonder if they are not madeas well, if we as consumers have directedthe “need” for newer and better every fewyears. With technology outpacing itself, thereis always something faster, better and on the“must-have” list. Computers are practicallyobsolete by the time we get everything out of the box and set up.None of our teens own cassette tapes.Wonder what they would think of the 8-tracksI have tucked away from a “few” years back.We are keeping up with the Joneses, whoare keeping up with someone else and so on.Along the way, we have given up reliability,consistency and the satisfaction of getting ourmoney’s worth.We don’t seem to mind shelling out ourhard-earned cash for something that we willbe eagerly replacing again in a few years forthe latest and greatest model.The switch on the wall lamp in the sparebedroom took a dive the other day. That lamphas hung on the wall for as long as I canremember. I’m seriously considering havingit fixed.

The Balancing Act
The couple have limitedpersonal time — spendingquality time together or pur-suing individual interests —so, they take advantage of any free time they can get.Karl has a home gym set upin the basement, which pro-vides him a limited amountof personal space and timefor reflection a few days aweek for about an hour. Thespace is not off limits to thekids and infrequently, one of them might come downstairsduring a workout and watchtelevision. Both Karl andTheresa would like more timefor their relationship.“It’s rare to have timetogether and be alone,”Theresa glanced at her hus-band. “More time would benice.”Communication is key. ForKarl and Theresa, there is lit-tle time for chit chat let alonea very important conversationdemanding their undividedattention. While the familyis at home — which is mostof the time — it is impos-sible to have a continuousdialogue. “It’s tough wheneverybody wants somethingat he same time,” Theresaexplained. Both Karl andTheresa agreed. The majorityof their conversations takeplace driving to and fromwork. Both have some flex-ibility with their jobs whenit comes to squeezing sometime into their schedules tohandle family matters.“Important conversations,requiring limited interrup-

to help him.”Officials lowered equip-ment into the sinkholeand saw no signs of life,said Hillsborough CountyFire Rescue spokeswomanJessica Damico. A dresserand the TV set had vanisheddown the hole, along withmost of Bush’s bed.“All I could see was thecable wire running from theTV going down into thehole. I saw a corner of thebed and a corner of the boxspring and the frame of thebed,” Jeremy Bush said.At a news confer-ence Friday night, countyadministrator Mike Merrilldescribed the home as“seriously unstable.” Hesaid no one can go in thehome because officialswere afraid of anothercollapse and losing morelives. The soil around thehome was very soft andthe sinkhole was expectedto grow.Engineers said theymay have to demolish thesmall, sky-blue house, eventhough from the outsidethere appeared to be noth-ing wrong with the four-bedroom, concrete-wallstructure, built in 1974.“I cannot tell you why ithas not collapsed yet,” saidBill Bracken, the owner of engineering company calledon to assess the sinkholeand home.Engineers said there wasan initial collapse followedby another one a short timelater. The hole was 15 feetdeep but grew to about 25feet deep, and it was about20 feet to 30 feet across.Florida is highly proneto sinkholes because thereare caverns below ground of limestone, a porous rock thateasily dissolves in water. Asinkhole near Orlando grewto 400 feet across in 1981and devoured five sportscars, most of two businesses,a three-bedroom house andthe deep end of an Olympic-size swimming pool.More than 500 sink-holes have been reported inHillsborough County alonesince the government start-ed keeping track in 1954,according to the state’senvironmental agency.Jeremy Bush said some-one came out to the homea couple of months ago tocheck for sinkholes andother things, apparently forinsurance purposes.“He said there was noth-ing wrong with the house.Nothing. And a couple of months later, my brotherdies. In a sinkhole,” Bushsaid.Six people were at thehome at the time, includ-ing Jeremy Bush’s wifeand his 2-year-old daugh-ter. The brothers workedmaintenance jobs, includ-ing picking up trash alonghighways.
