Remarkably, if you were to come across a wish list from 2013, many of the items would not be found on this year’s list. In one year, the technology/gadget landscape changed.
Story: In 1938, 8-year-old Berry Gordy Jr. witnessed the thrill his parents experienced when American boxer Joe Louis defeated German fighter Max Schmeling in a heavyweight bout. Gordy Jr. was determined to bring happiness to others in a way much like he saw in his parents’ faces at news of that epic boxing event.
Story: It’s another deadly dull day for Angela and Stu. The couple, who’ve been married for some 20 years, aren’t nearly as passionate as they were when they met in high school, at least not Angela. She’s grown weary of their threadbare existence and the livelihood that depends on their moribund convenience store.

Sometimes, dreams do come true. And sometimes, it's not wildly difficult to make that happen. Gardeners, once they learn of it, dream about the Chelsea Flower Show. So do some of us who just love the beauty of botany. This year, I was able to go.
One of the easiest ways for me to figure out what to give to another gardener during the holiday season is to know what I would like myself. Some of my favorite tools and gadgets, plus projects from my own wish list, are combined with Julie’s professional additions. Whether you are looking for a small gift for a neighbor or a major wow item for your sweetie, Julie and I would like to offer some ideas.

“My husband calls me Mrs. Winchester, since I keep adding on to the house and find ways to create new spaces,” says the homeowner of this renovated and expanded 1934 Ladue home.
Story: The place is England and the time is the 1930s, between the two world wars of the 20th century. Richard Hannay is an unadventurous British chap, much taken to pondering his dull life but not inclined to do much to alter it. Then, one night while attending a performance by “Mr. Memory” at the London Palladium, he is approached by a beautiful but mysterious young woman who convinces him to escort her back to his home.

Looking for a comfortable shoe for fall? Slightly more hip than Tom’s and definitely more fashionable than your running shoes, the slip-on sneaker is having its moment.
This month, instead of offering advice, I’m going to ask for your input. But first, a little background: began my first practice more than 34 years ago in a small southeast Missouri town. When my patients needed me outside of office hours, they called me at home; my number was in the book. On rare occasions, they just dropped by my house, as my address was listed, too. I had an answering machine to direct callers when I was not 'on call,' and when I was on call, my wife was my answering service. I attended every complicated delivery, met my patients in the emergency department, and made rounds twice daily on the many patients I admitted to the local hospital. There were no 'hospitalists.' There were no urgent-care centers or walk-in clinics. (And Al Gore had not yet invented the Internet.)

Everyone has a ‘dream house.’ What’s inside differs from person of person—a professional kitchen, cozy reading nooks, palatial pool or entertaining space to make the Joneses jealous. But real estate agents also are in on the fantasy. Here, area agents share their dream listings that are on the market now.
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, so it’s logical to conclude that dream homes start somewhere between the breakfast table and the stove. Looking for inspiration? Check out the dreamy details and captivating kitchens below.

The dining room in this year’s Show House easily could accommodate a classic Queen Anne dining set. But for designers Christy North and Tracy Miles, that predictability is anachronistic and somewhat out of touch with modern lifestyles.
