    A family in a pickle on a Saturday in the kitchen
    Our house is really more of a hutch than a house. In the overheated L.A. market, it probably wouldn't even fetch $1 million. Not exactly a showplace. But we do the best we can, my wife and I. We've decorated the house with children, some of whom have...

    Two lovers catch up on their adventure after 11 years
    In Valencia, Spain, amid the dense crowd, an American smiles at me. He has greenish-blue eyes, tan hair and a boyish grin that suddenly makes me blush. He walks over and introduces himself: Josh, the firefighter from Montana. We wander the streets of...
