I remember, years ago, when my husband and I were walking to our car in the parking lot after an outing to the swap meet when a man in front of us jerked a little girl off the ground by her arm and yelled at her. When the girl started crying, the guy whacked her on the backside and snarled, "Shut up!" At that point, my husband grabbed me by the arm. He knew I ... [full story]

Q: There is so much discussion about age now. Nevertheless, many family members are asking me how I feel on a regular basis. Maybe it's because I have just had my 65th birthday, but I'm not overly concerned about my health and future. I do feel blessed and lucky, but do I have to defend it? A: Maybe adult kids are beginning to feel a few aches and pains themselves. Not having actually experienced some ... [full story]

We used to live in a one-level co-op in Washington, D.C. During that time Kate had a bum knee that hurt off and on, and gradually became chronic. A couple of months after moving to Frederick, Md., though, her knee stopped hurting. Finally we realized that the one big difference was stairs. In our co-op, she rarely used the stairs. In our three-level town house, Kate walks the stairs frequently. Such a simple change in ... [full story]

Over the telephone, Maria Olson sounded anxious. "Are you OK?" asked Olson, San Diego's honorary consul for Spain. "I'm fine," replied Michael Inoue, San Diego's honorary consul for Japan. "I'm OK."

Q: Although you have stated many times in your column that if a cat owner feeds a high quality commercially prepared diet that is labeled as complete, additional nutrients are not needed. However, my wife still insists on giving our cat additional vitamins and supplements. I, of course, look at this as an unnecessary expense. This is not insignificant since we are on a fixed income. Our cat is healthy and has been vaccinated for ... [full story]

Three caregivers contacted me in a single week singing the praises of their parents' board-and-care homes. How refreshing, but not surprising. Despite the horror stories that make news and scare older folks and their children away from retirement homes, I frequently bump into places where I wouldn't mind living someday. In fact, my own mom loved her assisted-living apartment and later her skilled-nursing facility. Susan Zagorsky is thrilled with her mother's board-and-care in Del Mar, ... [full story]

That's what we all think, says Roger Blake, assistant executive director of the California Interscholastic Federation, the governing body of high school sports. He was coming to my town soon ...
