    Is shut down my private PC every evening. No need to have it running, and I typically close all software when I am done.

    On my work PC... pretty much only when I need to update. Most software I use daily keeps running and I let the PC hibernate over night.

    My work computer? I dunno... maybe like once every two weeks or so. Usually when I have to undock it for a meeting and then redock it.

    I loooooove grilled cheese with yellow mustard. It makes me happy on the inside. Like "dancing in the rain" happy.

    My question:

    How do I address an envelope to a family when the mother and father have different last names?

    Maybe:
    Mr. Ephraim Kishon and Mrs. Sabine Leutheuser-Schnarrenberger
    6789 Welfare Street,
    12345 CA
    USA
    Or maybe decorum demands that you put the woman's name first?

    Tangerine is also one of the best and most vibrant flavors of Jelly Belly jellybeans, and one of the more accurate.
    Tangerines also have a much thinner skin than oranges, if I remember correctly.

    Delivery is made on the basis of the address, not the name; omit the last names altogether.

    I remember a Miss Manners column from back in the day, in which she recommended that the address lines be separated, to wit:

    Ms. Jane Doe
    Mr. John Smith
    123 Somewhere Place
    Anytown, USA

    Note the inclusion of honorifics (and yes, here in the 21st century, Ms. is an acceptable honorific) and last names.
