Happy birthday. This is the magic hour of life; you're old enough to take advantage of privileges you didn't have when you were younger, and you can afford some of what you couldn't before. The best part is that you're young enough to enjoy those things. A career break happens in May. A lucky alliance in July leads to big money.

Q I have a patch of the old orange day lilies. I have heard them called ditch lilies. I also have a strip of ground down my driveway that stays wet to damp due to my neighbor's watering there almost every day. My drive is about 2 feet below their yard. Would these day lilies be good plant in this strip? The strip is about 25 feet long, and these day lilies spread at a very rapid rate. I have had good luck transplanting them. If they are not a good option, do you have a suggestion?

Car Talk

posted: 04/22/2017 1:43 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAR TALK: I have a 2015 BMW X3, which is equipped with run-flat tires. My tire tread was measured, and I was told that I have "7s" on the front and "9s" on the back. However, I recently got a flat tire on one of my rear 9 tires. So I bought a brand-new tire and put it on the front, along with the other 9 that used to be on the back. Then I put the two 7s on the back. Now I'm told that the new tire is bigger than the old 9 tire, and it will screw up my all-wheel-drive system. So I intentionally deflated the new tire a little bit (29 psi, compared with the recommended 30 psi) and inflated the other 9 (to 32 psi, compared with the recommended 30 psi), and I kept the rear 7s at 35 psi, as recommended. The purpose is to make the new tire a little smaller, so that it's the same diameter as the 9 tire. Is this a good approach? Is it recommended?

Let pegboard help declutter kitchens

posted: 04/22/2017 1:43 a.m. Discuss

Great storage solutions are born in one of two ways: in a frantic effort to make sense of an ever-expanding universe of things, or as a surrender to the knowledge that space is, in the end, limited. In the case of most of our houses -- and particularly our kitchens -- that limitation seems to be more stringent than ever. There are only so many pots, pans, paring knives and gadgets that can fit.

Review: Jungle fever

posted: 04/21/2017 1:51 a.m. Discuss

In The Lost City of Z, a lush, melancholic story of discovery and mystery, a mesmerizing Charlie Hunnam plays a British adventurer in the Amazon who is consumed by "all the glories of exploration," as Joseph Conrad once wrote of a different journey. Enveloped by the forest, the explorer and his crew face snakes, piranhas, insects and that most terrifying of threats: other people, who at times bombard the strangers with arrows.

Review: The Promise

posted: 04/21/2017 1:50 a.m. Discuss

Like its stylistic first-cousin, the bio-pic, sweeping epics very often suffer from their inflated scope, attempting to condense an enormous amount of information and story down to a small, finite series of stilted and obligatory scenes in which every point is telegraphed, and every detail is in direct service to the sprawling plot.
