On Gardening: Golden Lace, a champion for pollinators

Four years ago, I wrote about a Golden Lace patrinia a new plant to most gardeners and one that is thrilling beyond compare for anyone who loves pollinators. Now after four more years of experience, I can say it is a must-have plant, it is truly like having 'wild kingdom' packed in a four-foot-tall yellow blooming perennial.

Game review: 'Dandara,' feeling salty

While it's usually pretty easy to understand what a game will be about based on standard game genre classifications, sometimes a title comes around that completely bucks the trend. Such is the case with "Dandara," the new game from developer Long Hat House that could and perhaps likely should be described as a retro-inspired Metroidvania, yet manages not to feel like one. While the familiar notions of room-to-room exploration and the gradual acquisition of abilities are all present and in good form, "Dandara" sidesteps the genre's typical gameplay by removing the basic ability for players to run or even walk. As a result, the game feels less like a throwback adventure and more like an experimental new way to approach the genre – and that means it comes with a substantial learning curve.

Ex-etiquette: Rethink a Valentine's Day announcement

Q: I've recently struck up a friendship with a guy I lived with five years ago. I left when I was pregnant and never told him. Our son is now four, and after recently seeing my ex I think I should tell him that Randy is his son. At our last meeting, things got sort of flirty again, and I think Valentine's Day might be a good time to get his attention. What's good ex-etiquette?

Lori Borgman: Fear is undoubtedly a certain part of parenting

Before Orville and Wilbur Wright spread their wings, they ran a small bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio. They were cutting edge, both the Wright brothers and bicycles. Bicycles were the next big thing of the day. But not everyone was on board. There were voices of concern from parents. Why? Because a child who could not go far from home by walking could now be a mile away – in only 15 minutes.
