Ask Marvin #10


Today, Marvin recycles some content from old blogs with a new twist or two, in response to another real question from a live Blog reader (who gets a rep click for the contribution)!

“Dear Marvin,
I am a 32 year old mom and retired lawyer. My husband just got a promotioned to head of neurosurgery at the hospital and needed a car for his new position. We purchased a BMW M6, with GPS, satellite sound, heated seats, heated mirrors, iris scan security and other safety features. However, the Plunko 510 carseat my cousin’s best friend gave us eight years ago when our oldest son was born does not fit very well in our new car. It still fits great forward-facing in our Mercedes G55 AMG, but we will obviously need a new seat for our 20lb 12-month old in the new car. Can you recommend a seat that will install well in the BMW M6 for our 12-month old? It’s black, with black interior, so we’ll need something that will match…but money is a bit tight right now because we had to buy a new car so I can only afford to spend $50 on a new seat, at most. Perhaps I should look on eBay or Craigslist for an inexpensive used seat instead?

What were you for Halloween?


We hadn’t been to a costume party in years.  It was a great party with an 80’s theme.  Guess who won best costume?

So what were you and your kids for Halloween this year?
