Happiness Stumbling Block: How to cope when everything "turns to ashes" (as it did, for Elizabeth).
Listener Question: Whitney asked about what to do about the fact that her very loving mother-in-law has given her a diaper bag that she doesn't want.
Gretchen’s Gold Star: I give a gold star to the New York Public Library's collection of digital images that are in the public domain. Free to share and reuse. Beautiful, amazing! What a treasure trove! The beautiful collection I mention -- Plante et Ses Applications Ornamentales -- is here.
