Reccomendations on a family trip for my father who is turning 60 in November. Preferably not a beach vacation. He likes cooking, playing golf, tennis, and doesn’t drink. Outside the US also.

Golf but no beach - I think that means Scotland. There’s some great hiking and nature there, history too. The only thing is it is far north so November will be a bit cold and daylight hours will be a little shorter.

Hi all. Hubs and I have been trying to get pregnant for a few years with no luck. Tried IUI, no success. I’m scared of IVF and the toll it takes on your body but we may be looking at that soon.
But I want to keep trying naturally for 6 more months.
I’m a relatively healthy-ish person but wondering what I can do diet-wise.
What healthy diets did you go on? What foods did you cut out/introduce? My naturopath told us both to reduce red meat and dairy.
I’m south Asian if that makes a difference.

We were sitting in the car to get the GPS situated for a bit and he wouldn’t break eye contact with me. As we pulled away, he started to angrily talk to us and wave. Very unsettling and can’t shake it.
