I have to buy a new dishwasher ASAP. Does anyone have any recommendations? Not commercial grade, please. Thanks in advance for any advice!

I'm purchasing a new bed for one of our suites. The beds in our other 4 rooms are queen-sized, but I've heard that king-sized beds are a big selling point. I've had guests request them a few times. I've also had friends traveling together ask about separate beds. I have way more couples stay with me than friends requesting twin beds, so I'm leaning towards just buying a king.

Does anyone own twin beds that you push together to form a king-sized one? If so, what do you use to join them? Is it a pain to move them around? Do guests notice the "divot" between the two?

Yesterday morning we lost power for 2 hours, from 4am to 6am. This meant that our 4 gas furnaces were no longer blowing warm air into the rooms. The temperature in the house dropped to about 62F. The guests in the morning were fairly gracious about it, but commented, "I thought you'd have some sort of backup generator for emergencies."

This is the first time in 7 years of living in St. Louis that we've ever lost power for more than 15 minutes. I'm wondering, do many B&B owners have backup generators? Is a whole-house generator for $10,000+ worth it?

Airbnb is mentioned a lot, but I thought this was an interesting article about a different "sharing economy" business being banned. How can Uber claim that 1,000 jobs are lost due to this decision?
