God, this is so timely. I'm in a weird place friendship-wise.
Chips are my weakness. Chips vs. Chocolate?
Here comes another one... but it's not what you think. French Kids Eat Everything is a surprisingly charming memoir about a family who moved to France with two picky eaters in tow and returned to Canada a year later with a happier, healthier, more educated outlook on food. Make no mistake: This isn't a U.S.-bashing book. It's not even a pro-French parenting book.
Income security for many Canadian families is an “elusive dream” in the after-shocks of the recession, with those at the older and younger ends of the age spectrum in particular struggling. The young are having a tough time entering the job market, as more than half of the net jobs created since the recession's low point have gone to those aged 55 and over, the Vanier Institute of the Family says in its annual review of the state of Canadian family finances to be released Thursday. At the same time, older workers are having to either stay in the work force longer, or go back to work after retirement to make up pension shortfalls. The squeeze at both ends is putting further pressure on working-age parents.

All young adults who think they’re getting a raw deal in today’s economy, let me tell you about how it was back in my day. In 1984, my final undergraduate year of university, tuition cost more or less $1,000. I earned that much in a summer without breaking a sweat. When I went looking for a new car in 1986, the average cost was roughly half of what it is now. It was totally affordable.

Sure, renting sounds creepy in this case, but consider this scary stat: Buying a casket costs about $2,000 on average, and some mahogany, bronze and copper ones sell for as much as $10,000, according to the Federal Trade Commission . Many funeral homes will rent caskets for $500 to $900 a day, so renting may be worth it if you want a nice casket to display at the funeral but are fine with something simpler to go into the ground or crematory—and the total rental price for the number of days you need the casket is less than the purchase price. Typically, the body stays inside the casket in a thick cardboard container, which is then removed for burial or cremation, explains Joshua Slocum, executive director of the Funeral Consumers Alliance .
