I'm in the early planning stages for some major renovations to my kitchen and multiple bathrooms in my house. I'm looking for some inspiration, especially for clever things I may not think of on my own. I'd love to know what things delight you in your own kitchen/bathroom.

In my neighborhood there's 3 houses (mine included) that aren't in the neighborhood polygon in NextDoor for some reason. I have tried to use NextDoor's Contact Us
to rectify this over the course of 6 months but have not received anything, no matter what option I seem to choose. My neighbors use NextDoor as a means to propagate information. I'm willing to try anything, including entering a new address, which NextDoor frowns upon. What's the best way to achieve my goals without having mail or something sent to my neighbors in the verification process? [more inside]

My mother will not be returning to her manufactured home in a MHPark in Largo FL. I am far away from Florida and not going there. I have found clean-out services on the internet (any my brother in law is going to ask a realtor) but I want to ask here. If you have any recommendations for clean out services in Largo please let me know. I need someone who will pack up and ship her personal papers to me and remove the personal items, leaving the unit furnished for resale. Thanks.

I am sitting here weeping at the news coverage of what is and will happen to those the US (my country) has left behind as we pull out of Afghanistan. Women/young girls will be trafficked/brutalized. Men who "collaborated" as translators, guides or even cooks will be jailed/killed. People are desperate to get out! What can I do? Are there aide groups I can donate to? Write to my representatives? How could they not see this coming is another question, but... is there something practical to do, groups to support? I cannot just sit here and weep.
When I removed a tampon today it was kind of split in the middle and a tiny part at the top (maybe 0.5 cm?) looked like it was missing.

In the last few months, I read a Modern-Love-style essay (nonfiction, autobiographical) about a woman who wasn't sure whether she wanted to commit to the man she was seeing. He asked her to essentially make the choice to keep seeing him on a date-by-date basis rather making a choice to commit to be with him: if she was excited to see him the next time, then she should see him the next time. I'd like to reread it, but now I can't find the essay. Help? [more inside]

I obtained some old audio equipment
: four Shure M67 Microphone Mixers without visible issues, a M68FC Mixer in rough shape, two Shure M610 Feedback Controllers w/o visible issues, one Shure SR105 Power Amplifier with corrosion on the outer case, and three Rauland Borg TAX75C amplifiers with at least some exterior corrosion. Not being an audio guy, I'm looking for resources to help a beginner safely check these things and diagnose and remediate any issues.
I had been going to the same barber for a few years consistently with only occasional missed months. Nice guy but always seemed to have trouble with my hair (so, one of four haircuts were bad), and in 2021, ratio of bad to good got worse.

Psychologists, philosophers & geeks! Is an argument
I had about emotional intelligence’s existence & definition semantic
? I argued there’s a difference between colloquial pop-psychology definitions of a psychological ‘thing’ & specific scientific definitions of that ‘thing’ by an ‘operationalization’ process making abstract ‘things’ real by inferences from evidence of other ‘things’. E.g. Empathetic people w/ soft skills vs abstract measurable attributes that can predict outcomes. I was accused of arguing semantics. I don’t believe it was about differences between lay meanings & proof of existence – arguments from different universes. See inside. [more inside]
