I think that once your kids are out of the baby stage, there's not as much need for the parenting specific forums on a regular basis. By the time your kid is 3 or so, you don't have all of the questions that you do when they're infants and toddlers. TAO and...

I remember that well. But I don't see anything 'convenient' about it, I just see it as using basic good manners and being an adult and engaging in...

Seems to be lacking. ChaCha's isn't so hot anymore. They've given the short, easy answers to expiditers, and now all of the guide questions are all 3-4 minute questions. The guides who were making $8 to $10 an hour before are making $3 to $5 now. And now...

If your financials show that you can still afford your note, you will not be approved. Yes, and even then, it is incredibly difficult to do a short sale. The banks make it incredibly difficult, and most of the time, they reject offers on short sales. I would...
