  1. Just read your article on ancient homes as history lessons. Finally, someone mentions how boring history can be when focusing on wars and power struggles and *yawn* conquest. It wasn’t until I was in college that I discovered how much more interesting social history is compared to the endless history of war. I loved your article.

  2. Dear Marni,
    Love your columns. Just read the one on “Blended families…and would like to offer a suggestion about family get togethers: that you all agree on a date and have one then. It can have a theme or not. Another suggestion: 2017 the get together is at wherever will work with everyone’s input. The important theme, if you will, is blending. Rent a large VRBO and celebrate. If someone is so inclined make a photo book of the gathering. Isn’t that better than all getting together for a funeral?!
    Well, enough already.

    Regards,

  3. I have been reading your wonderful articles every Saturday in then Denver Post, ever since you were in Denver. Please keep them coming. I thoroughly enjoy them and it is the first article I look for each Saturday. Love your sense of humor.

  4. I too read your article every Saturday in the Marin Independent Journal. Usually I learn something, and sometimes I disagree with you. Your piece on monogramming, for example, made me laugh and remember the period I went through with my mother and sister when we monogrammed a lot of things, then got over it. Your remark in last Saturday’s column (1/27) where you said you didn’t believe in buying stuff to store your stuff also made me laugh. I’m a knitter, and if I didn’t have a good supply of plastic storage boxes for my yarn collection (stash), I would go mad, never know what I have, and end up buying yarn because I couldn’t find the same thing in my stash. Balls of yarn would fall on my head when I opened the closet door if I didn’t have the yarn neatly stored and carefully labelled in their boxes.
    Keep up the good work!

  5. I AM NOT SURE THAT MARNI WILL GET TO READ THIS NOTE BUT SHE IS FAMILY. WE JUST HAPPENED TO BE TOGETHER A FEW WEEKS AGO AND IT WAS VERY GOOD TO SEE HER. THE OCCASION WAS SAD BECAUSE IT WAS FOR OUR AUNT’S FUNERAL. SHE IS WITH HER LORD NOW.
    I DID NOT KNOW MY NIECE WAS THAT POPULAR AND
    I WISH HER THE BEST. LOVE, ELMER

  6. We read your information on Grilling and you talked about Wood-pellet grilling. We have become interested in this type of grilling, and wondering if the exit-or cost for the equipment is worth it>

  7. I read your article in the InsideOut of the Times-Picayunne every week. I love your articles since they are so witty. I hope that you visit our area ( I live in Mandeville, LA, near NewOrleans) one day. Maybe you will be here for a book signing or something. I would love to meet you.

  8. I’d love to meet you in New Orleans. Maybe when my new Downsizing workbook comes out in January!

  9. Yes! Love New Orleans. Hope to do a signing there when “Downsizing the Family Home: A Workbook” comes out in January.
