Thank you so much!

I'm a little confused about what time to use when we are talking about a situation that lasted for a certain period in the past.

For example:
'I was dancing all night long' or 'I danced all night long'?
which is more correct? Or does they have different meaning?

And the same about situations when we talk about specific time period.
For example:
'I was cooking from 2 to 5 o'clock yesterday?' or 'I cooked from 2 to 5 o'clock yesterday'?

Thank you very much for your explanation!
And the last question. Just to sum up.
If I want to say "I'm a manager ____ Big Hero", I should say 'with'? Or it's better to use 'in'?

I don't understand the difference between position in, position with, position within and position at.
I was surfing the Net and I found examples:

"He held a senior position in a large company."
"He left a career in teaching to take up a position with the Arts Council."
"There are 12 women in management positions within the company."
"So, three of you applied for a position at my firm."

Are all of these examples correct? Is there any difference between them? If yes, what's the difference?

I like the other translation more: 'I am a fool with a heart but no brains, and you are a fool with brains but no heart; and we're both unhappy, and we both suffer.'

What word wouldn't be pejorative with similar meaning?

Her parsimony was so extreme that she'd walk five miles to the store to save a few cents on gas.
