Then she leaned down and kissed the doll's face, demonstrating the same kind of love her parents, Luis and Monica Montana, show her.   MISSED LEAD? - Isabela Montana, 2, loves her dolls, but her parents worry about her kissing them, given the increasing reports of recalled toys due to excessive lead in their painted surfaces.

A journey into the subterranean world of a working salt mine is possible in just a few places on Earth, and the only mine in the Western Hemisphere that allows visitors is in Hutchinson, Kan., at the Underground Salt Museum. A 70-second, noisy, dark elevator ride takes visitors 650 feet below the ground to the museum, which opened in May. Visitors go underground wearing a hard hat and a small, light rescue breather in case ... [full story]

Q: I do not look forward to holidays because I am widowed, lonelier than ever, and shy. My small family is at a distance, and although we exchange presents and phone calls, it's the worst time of the year for me. How can I pep myself up? A: Take the positive high road. Choose to become more involved with other people. Loneliness is not exclusive, and we all share your feelings regardless of whether we ... [full story]

Talking to Aunt Jean on the phone is a real trip. Usually the first thing she says to my wife is, "Kate, what phone are you using? I can't hear you." No, she can't hear Kate but it has nothing to do with the phone. Aunt Jean is deaf and won't think of buying a hearing aid. "I just have some wax in my ears," she insists. No doctor agrees with that theory. But Jean's ... [full story]

With the holiday season well under way, there is often an increase in family gatherings, office parties and outings with friends. This is also the time of year when alcohol flows more freely and the potential for a hangover increases. According to a recent online survey conducted by the National Headache Foundation (NHF), 81% of survey respondents noted that they have experienced a hangover headache. Additionally, almost 79% of respondents plan on consuming alcoholic beverages ... [full story]

Disasters such as Oregon’s recent flooding and windstorms often take an emotional toll on those in the middle of things – but there are a number of coping strategies that can help ease the situation.

Q: As the calendar reminds us, we are rapidly approaching the holidays, and we have a gift problem. We would like to be with our distant parents but cannot afford to travel this year. Our parents are still in good health, always emotionally supportive and don't ask us for anything. In a word, they are wonderful. Our children are still young but miss their grandparents, too. What kind of gifts can we send to show ... [full story]

We've just had our kitchen faucet replaced. In the process, we asked the plumber what the difference was between a lever handle and two knobs. He hesitated then sheepishly mumbled, "I doubt if this fits you," he said, "but many people with arthritis find a lever much easier to operate." Without knowing it, that plumber was practicing what's called "universal design." The hottest trend in housing today is "universal design." Whether you are young or ... [full story]

Q: We are planning to retire and settle in a retirement community next year. We have an excellent real estate broker in our community and have asked his advice. He says our local prices are down about 7 percent here and believes prices may continue down. What are your thoughts about selling now, and buying into a retirement community and renting it until we can make our move? A: Your decision is a crapshoot, and ... [full story]

There are those youngsters under 30 who firmly believe that us senior citizens over 65 spend too much time trafficking in nostalgia. In fact, they argue, that nostalgia is our most important product, that we spend too many days romanticizing the past and not enough time in the present. Well, I would not, for a minute, debate that today's youngsters are better educated, stronger and more affluent than my generation was - even if their ... [full story]

Q: We recently obtained a beautiful mixed-breed dog from our local pet shelter. We do not know how old she is nor do we know if she has been spayed. The counselor at the shelter has encouraged us to have our veterinarian check to see if our dog has been spayed and, if not, to have the surgery done. One of the reasons given to us for having our dog spayed is that the surgery ... [full story]

Someone asked me during the recent firestorms in California how to mitigate the stress on older folks. My answer: "Everyone is stressed. If we're smart, we'll look to our parents for hints about coping. Obviously, they didn't get to be octogenarians without learning to deal with stress." Our parents, indeed, were troupers. And so were the communities that opened their hearts and doors to retirement-home evacuees. Homes with extra beds made them available. Facilities that ... [full story]
