First, a reminder that our “reader recommendation” posts (with all the incredibly helpful replies attached) have their own category now — use the link on the WSB CATEGORIES list on the right side of this page (you can also bookmark it or subscribe to just that category via RSS). Now, the latest requests:

–A request for opinions — good, bad, neutral — about bathtub refinishers (even if they’re not in WS, as long as they have done work for you here).

–A request for licensed/bonded arborist recommendations, to do what the reader describes as “pruning/storm damage prevention on (a willow tree).” The reader hopes to use someone who could said to be of the “‘plant amnesty’ mindset.”

–Last but not least, a reader is looking for a home-based child-care provider who would consider watching a 7-year-old with a nontraditional school schedule during certain months of the year when the child is out of school. (Responses to this one can be posted here or e-mailed to us and we will forward to that reader.)
