Or, for gatherings of friends and family to celebrate special days like Memorial Day weekend, birthdays or Father's Day.
Dear Angie: I recently bought a house with a furnace that was installed improperly in 2002. My building inspector identified this as a safety hazard during the purchase process.

Everyone saw her home, Casa Azul, in the movie "Frida," the biography of Mexico's most famous surrealist painter. The family house is in Coyoacan, where she grew up, a suburb just south of Mexico City. Today it is Museo Frida Kahlo for those intrepid enough to brave the trip to this lovely old town. And though wandering the house and Frida's studio is an exceptional experience, there are some great ideas outside in the garden.
