It doesn’t matter if you’re a summer guest or a summer host…there is a polite way to navigate this socially treacherous territory with some sound advice and remedies to rudeness. Couch-surfing, pad-crashing etiquette: Can it exist? Can it be diplomatically enforced?

Do parenting skills give female execs a leg up in the workplace?
A new study shows that 95 % of female professionals think raising children has provided them with “unique skills portable to the workplace.” Another 80% of working women believe that technology has made it much easier to balance work and family by connecting them to the workplace whenever and wherever they are.

Finding water in the desert: Stephen’s Grace’s “Dam Nation”
From the pioneer’s doctrine “the rain follows the plow,” through the time of John Wesley Powell, the founding of Los Angeles – and the rise and fall of the Bureau of Reclamation – water has been and will forever remain a political issue in the American West. Lest anyone forget, author Stephen Grace drops by to talk to Patt about the history of water management in the American West. Put down the hose and listen up to the people who brought you the Guerrilla Graywater Girls’ Guide to Water.
Stephen Grace, author of “Dam Nation” and “Under Cottonwoods”
