Your Questions About Best Tacky Christmas

David asks…

What to get my best friend for christmas?!?

Might seem impersonal and a bit tacky asking, but to be quite honest I have no idea!
I’ve been best friends with HER for 3 years, and every year we always seem to get each other jewellery. But I don’t want to do that again, something new and different.
Ideas please:)

richmama answers:

I’m getting my best friend since kindergarten a camera, because she’s a photographer and needs one.

But maybe a scrapbook with stuff you did would be more personal. They tend to cost a lot. I made some, and the actual book was 15 dollars, scrapbook paper was 25 cent each and I needed like 50 of those, plus the stickers were like 5 dollars per little pack and I got the ones that popped up and stuff.
But it’ll be really cute.

Ummm, you can continue with the jewelry thing but instead get it personalized. My best friend got me a bracelet for my birthday that had “To my sista! Love Anna” on it. Because we’re so close its like we’re sisters. And I liked it a lot. They have deals on them so you could probably get one for less than 30 dollars.
Or if you have enough cash, you can get a best friends necklace. Like the ones that come in twos and each of you wear one, and have them engraved. I saw some really cute ones online while trying to figure out what to get my friend.

OR you could get a big stocking or basket and fill it with little stuff. I did this for another friend last year. I went to the dollar store and bought little things. I put candy, a stuffed animal, and just random stuff. One of things in it was one of those old fake glasses with a big nose and mustache. She lovedd that haha.

One other thing you could do was get personalized t-shirts or do splatter painting with her name or something.

Hope I helped!

Jenny asks…

I have 4 days in New York at Christmas, what are the top things to do?

I will be in New York with my partner from 25th – 29th Dec, there is so much to do how do we fit in the best bits? we want a little tourism but noting too tacky, maybe a play (not a musical) or classical concert and maybe a museum, then somewhere nice to eat, and possibly some good places to wander around and just take it all in. We are staying between Central Park South and Times Sq. and have 3 full days 4 nights. Travelling from London. Thanks

richmama answers:

I just got back and If your a first timer I recommend buying a “city pass” and a 7 day unlimited ride card for the subway it’s called a metro card. With these two items you can go to the MOMA (modern art) lots of van gogh’s and picasso’s and other great stuff. The mueseum of natural history ( although i am not a big history buff) I found this a bit boring The Guggenhiem (art museum) A boat cruise around manhattan, And of course The empire state building. (definately go to the top the views are amazing. As far as wondering around goes you’ll have to choose the ares you are interested in. Central Park is Awesome, Midtown is realy cool too it has the rockafeller center, saint patricks cathedral, grand central station, Radio city music hall and times square.If your looking for something more bohemian try the walking tour of greenwhich village. (dinner at Tio PePe’s is a must, west 4th street just off the southwest corner of washington square.) The financial district is a neat thing to see although most of it will be closed you can still see the outside of the stock exchange and wall street, and visit ground zero. Although that looks like a construction site now. The Statue of Liberty is cool to look at but it is very time consuming and you can’t get into the crown anymore. Have a great time whatever you do and you will be pleasantly surprised how helpful and friendly everyone will be.

Sandy asks…

How can I hang lighted garland on mantle without electrical cord going all the way down the wall?

I want to put lighted garland on my mantle for Christmas. However, I do not know the best way to do it without having the ugly electrical cord hanging from the garland all the way to the bottom of the wall where the electrical outlet is. How do you do this without making it look tacky?

richmama answers:

Check if Home Depot or the like have battery powered outlets. Something you can plug into, that is battery powered, and doesn’t have a long cord.

Your Questions About Mother Daughter Quotes For Mothers Day

Carol asks…

10 POINTS!!!!!!! Mothers Day Present 10 Points!!!!!!!!!!?

I have made my mum a set of placemats for mothers day, but they have family photos on them, and they’ve been laminated so they won’t get ruined. My friend did this for her mums birthday last year and she loved it and her mum and my mum have the same interests (im BFFL with her daughter and mum is BFFL with her mum), so i know she’ll like it just because its from me.

Can anyone help me get some quotes for these placemats- I need a few for daughters, mothers, fathers and maybe a whole family together, and mayb growing up.

Thanks and if you can help me 10 POINTS i promise you!

richmama answers:

Moms are the best friends we never knew we had.

Family memories are keepsakes to be treasured for all time.

God needed two more hands to help guide the children of the earth, so he created Mothers and Fathers.

My darling daughter/son, you came to us from love. It is our love for you that protects you. And it is our love we give to you, to take with you forever.

Mothers and Fathers, let your children choose their paths in life, and it will always lead back to you.

Growing up is for kids; growing old is for adults. Growing tired of life is for the people who don’t know the difference!

Richard asks…

is pc 647.B a hear say case , ? hard to prove ? the reason i ask is my 14yr old daughter accused her step fath?

my 14 yr old daughter in formed me that while at her mothers home visting she caught her step father looking at her through the bath room window , once when she was fully dressed doing her hair , then 3 days later while she was completley naked taking a shower , we went to the police to report it , the officer told me & my daughter and i quote ” honestly Mr. its no big deal nobody was hurt and its only a misdameanor so we cant spend money taking him in just so he can bail out..2 days later the same officer told me that he cant tell me the mans record but is shocked he is working for a school , , on the police report the officer report the man has a prior convection of PC.314 , within 3 days of reporting the man has fled the state along with my daughters mother is following him , n i guess nobody thinks WOW thats pretty sick

richmama answers:

The police are worthless. No sense bothering them and making them miss their doughnut break. Go over their head to the DA, or better yet find a “woman’s” abuse group and ask them what is done in cases like this. If you have a college or University nearby call them and ask to speak to the Chair of the Woman’s studies department. Tell her the same story you told us, and I’m SURE you’ll get action.

This guy is a sick pervert and needs to be arrested charged and booked for this crime.

Michael asks…

My daughters mother won’t let me see her and i’m tired of trying yet i’m the bad guy?

If i’m not hearing it from her it’s from my mother and everyone else who thinks they know anything about our “relationship”. We broke up about 3 months ago and it wasn’t a very clean break either. There were some things said that probably shouldn’t have been said on my part and hers. I went from seeing my daughter everyday since she was born to not seeing her in 2 months. When we broke up she moved out and she decided that i wasn’t and i quote “able to provide for them anymore “i’m worthless” “she needs a guy who’s able to take care of her and her daughter“. haha tell me how you really feel right? I’d call her up and ask to see my daughter and she would be like ok that days fine and when i would tell her i was on my she’d be like oh i made other plans after the 60th time i gave up I don’t care anymore she can do whatever she wants. All i am is a child support check anyway. She called my mother and told her i wasn’t making an “effort” anymore? how is that my fault? she likes pushing my buttons. I don’t even want to go through the trouble of going to court over this. I’m done, whenever she feels that i’m man enough to see my daughter then i guess that’s when i’ll see her. Yet everyone is blaming me for all this. At the end of the day it’s only hurting our daughter.

richmama answers:

This is your DAUGHTER! Fight for her. Not fighting for her will only make her feel abandoned and reinforce your ex’s feelings that you’re not good enough.

Also, your daughter better be worth “the trouble of going to court” for. She’s your daughter. She deserves to know you and you deserve to know her.
