LORETTA LAROCHE: Cellphones have a way of interrupting conversation - I am still in awe of how and when it became acceptable to ignore the people we’re with so that we can scroll and troll the tech highway for voicemail or texts. By Loretta LaRoche, The Patriot Ledger.

101 IDEAS: Linens 101 - Linens can be made from a variety of materials. Natural fibers such as cotton tend to be the most popular. These are generally the softest and breathe well. Fabric blends are another choice. A polyester/cotton blend is best for someone who likes a sheet that doesn't wrinkle as much. By HGTV/Scripps Howard.

BUTTONED UP: Organizing your summer stuff - Summer is right around the corner. That means it's time for the slew of warm-weather toys, tools and sundries that have been stashed away for winter to come out of hiding and re-enter the regular rotation of "stuff" in your home. Before the season is in full swing, try setting up a few organizational stations to keep these items in check. Here are 10 easy ideas for keeping everything from flip-flops to swimwear and barbecue tools contained and at the ready. By Sarah Welch and Alicia Rockmore, Scripps Howard.

PLUMBER: Don't be afraid to add a touch of glass to bathroom - Q: Recently I started looking at bathroom sinks and came across a line of "glass" sinks at a plumbing-supply house. I did not even realize that glass was a popular material for bathroom sinks. They looked beautiful, but my question has to do with the material itself. Is glass really a good, durable choice for a bathroom? Also, what types of glass sinks are available other than the vessel types that I saw? By Ed del Grande, Scripps Howard.

ALLISON B. HUDSON: Congrats to all grads! -- May is always a busy month with numerous graduations to attend, so I want to first congratulate each and every graduate from every school on a job well done! You did it! Graduations are a special time for everyone involved, and lots of teary moments begin, but it’s especially for high school and college graduates that the real life starts to kick in.

DR. MURRAY FEINGOLD: Sleep tight, and don't let the bed bugs bite -- I’m not certain, but I do know that, at times, the bites from a bed bug can itch with such intensity that they can almost drive you crazy. And, unfortunately, there has been a resurgence in the number of bed bug infestations. MetroWest Daily News (Mass.)

PETER COSTA: How I save on shaving  -- Hard economic times have forced people to find innovative ways to save money. The first thing on my list is to shave only every other day. I use one of those five-bladed shavers that boast micro-technology. It can cut a hair an atom-wide in diameter, but we pay dearly for such a close shave.  Wicked Local Lincoln (Mass.)

ALIX KUNKLE: My top favorite albums that help shape our lives -- Some of these bring back personal experiences; others are just musically brilliant. But they're probably my top five favorite albums of all time (notice I didn't say best albums of all time). Disclaimer: Many of these CDs are from within the last decade, except for the last one. That doesn't mean they're not good. Leesville Daily Leader (La.)

KENT BUSH: Mitt Romney doesn’t need Donald Trump’s support - Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney might want to rethink appearing at fundraisers with Donald Trump. Romney says he doesn’t agree with everything Trump says, but he needs the support to beat Barack Obama in November. No he doesn’t. By Kent Bush, Augusta, Kan.

RICK HOLMES: How Steve Jobs ‘put a dent in the universe’ -- In 1985, Jobs fell in love with the sidewalks of Florence. Not the city, the stone. So much so that the floors of every Apple store — now more than 325 around the world — are cut to order at the Il Casone quarry north of Florence. MetroWest Daily News (Mass.)

SILVIO CALABI: BMW’s 3-Series grows up - Back when owner’s manuals were in Latin, the list of BMW options fit on a cocktail napkin and nothing was driver-adjustable. The thinking was, We know how to make performance cars. This is what you need. Trust us. No more. Now we can fiddle with suspension stiffness, brake and throttle response, steering ratios and what the backup camera sees. The less we can really drive — thanks to congestion and the long arm of the law — the more important such things become. If we can’t use the speed and handling, well, let us be entertained with choices instead. By Silvio Calabi, GHNS.
