Depending on your terrain and climate, as well as the ages of your children, a mountain bike with panniers and a trailer might work for quite a while. For me, there wasn't enough cargo room to let...

I got ours at soaring heart futon in seattle-- they do sell online as well-- and it was around $90 for a queen at that time. My parents have an identical one they have used for more than 20 years,...

We don't wrap our bed, but to make it more comfortable, how about a wool layer covered with a cotton mattress pad under the sheet? That's what we use on our futon, and it's very comfy. The wool...

Personally I don't like alpaca for soakers because it has little fiber memory and doesn't hold its shape well in ribbing around the legs and waist. The drapiness of most alpaca yarns requires being...
