ON THE MAP: Remember Beatle George Harrison's sister Louise? She lives in Branson and manages Liverpool Legends, a Beatles tribute band. In early October 2004, she was in Little Rock to lend the almost-opened Clinton Presidential Center a Meet the Beatles! album signed by all four band members when they came to America in 1964 to perform on The Ed Sullivan Show. She parked her car in downtown Little Rock on Louisiana near Second Street, and it was broken into. Her purse and luggage (but not the LP) were stolen.

We are updating our house after 27 years. I was wondering if you could provide some insight about a difference of opinion. One of us says to work top to bottom -- painting the ceiling, then the walls and lastly replacing flooring. The other thinks the flooring should be first in case the walls get marked up by the floor being installed. Then there is the theory that replacing flooring might be messy and create dust, so the better order may be flooring first, then ceiling and walls. The work being done includes removing carpeting in the bedroom, hallway and living room and replacing it with wooden flooring. We are undecided on the flooring for the kitchen and dining room which have tile with crumbling grout. Which is best?
