There are many factors and options for buying bar stools. (GMJ Interiors) Dear Gail: I’m reconfiguring my island as it’s just too big. I currently have a raised bar area that I want to keep and adding a lower countertop area for my grandchildren. Right now I’m able to get matching stools to my nook set, but wondering if that would be too much. I’m not a big mix and matcher.

Now the Celtics are back where the streak began, taking on the Pelicans at home on Monday with the wind of five consecutive wins at their backs. Meanwhile, the Pelicans are slipping a bit after dropping six of their last 10 (which have included some difficult games). At 14-14, they are a game back of the eighth seed in a jammed-up Western Conference. Once again, New Orleans' lack of consistent … [Read more...] about Boston Celtics vs. New Orleans Pelicans: Kyrie Irving & Celtics face test of recent success vs. Anthony Davis
