Q: My husband retires in about two months. He has had an excellent career, and will receive a good retirement income. His dream vacation has always been to visit his ancestors' village in Poland. Based on some letters he received a few years ago, he believes he can reconnect with distant relatives there. Now he's telling me after retirement he doesn't want to go because he is afraid to spend the money because he thinks ... [full story]

Now that obesity is a national epidemic, health experts are making a renewed push to get us to walk more - at least 10,000 steps a day. Walking is a mild and enjoyable bit of exercise. Regular walking could prolong your life, insist the experts at the International Longevity Center, a research policy organization in New York. The center has put out an electronic brief called "Walk to a Healthy Future," listing the "top 10 ... [full story]

Depression after retirement is common; especially among persons who invested heavily in their careers and neglected other areas of their lives. Suddenly they feel emptiness and despair when they retire.  People whose sense of self-esteem and worth is dependent on their work are particularly at risk.  They may feel they have lost their purpose for living; that they are worthless and no longer have a role to play in society. That message was delivered by Scott ... [full story]

Leaping out of a plane 15,000 feet above the Earth. Swimming with great white sharks. Scaling the sheer face of a 1,000-foot cliff. For most people, the thought of these activities conjure feelings of terror and dread. For adventure lovers and thrill seekers, they sound like the perfect vacation getaway.   WHEELIN' IN NEW ZEALAND - Looking down above Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, New Zealand, home to herds of red deer, wapiti, fallow deer and the ...

I don't know about you, but I don't feel a heck of a lot safer when I go to an airport and put my shoes through the X-ray machine or get my shampoo confiscated because it's more than three ounces or isn't packed in the right kind of plastic bag. For some reason that I can't fathom, a Ziploc bag is considered much safer than a mere plastic bag, a tool of international terrorism that ... [full story]

Q: We have two wonderful young grandchildren by our son and daughter-in-law. Our natural daughter has just married a divorced gentleman who has full custody of his 2-year-old daughter. My wife and I signed our living trust three years ago. As we were not anticipating a stepdaughter, we did not address this issue. We are considering amending our trust to include her in our estate gifts. How should we handle this? A: Assuming you are ... [full story]

It must have been a slow news day in The Associated Press Washington bureau so an enterprising reporter figured he would take on Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., who turns 90 this fall. The AP dispatch in mid-June made quite a splash in the Charleston (W.Va.) Daily Mail, announcing, "Age is finally catching up with (Byrd) in the winter of his 54-year career in Congress. At 89, the longest-serving senator in history and the third person ... [full story]

Anytime you commune with nature and hordes of hot, sweaty humans, you have to keep your wits about you. The beach is no exception. Parents brave heatstroke just loading the cooler, Boogie boards, chairs and kids into the car. Finding parking requires a ruthlessness usually reserved for the mall in December. And hauling all the gear across the sand can leave you feeling like you've been stranded in the Mojave. Don't let any of that ... [full story]

What Majur Malou endured was ghastly, worse than can be imagined. He was beaten. He was made to stand for hours with his arms straight up, like a referee signaling a touchdown. If he dropped his arms - or even let them sag - look out. A punch to the side. Then a punch to the face. For two months Malou, a college student leader from Sudan, was tortured for speaking out against his government ... [full story]

An analysis of expenses for health care from a variety of sources discovered that medical costs soar with age. The Lifetime Distribution of Health Care Costs Health Services Research found that of the people who live past 85, nearly 60 percent of their total lifetime health care costs are spent after they turn 65. Even worse news for older folks, the study found that more than one-third of the average 85-year-old's lifetime health care expenses ... [full story]

The fun doesn't end after the snow melts away at Southern California's Big Bear Mountain Resorts. While the other chairlifts sit idle in the sun, Snow Summit's East Mountain Express turns into the Scenic Sky Chair, a 15-minute ride up the mountain for sightseers, hikers and even mountain bikers. The lift runs at a high speed during the winter, but in the summer it makes its way slowly and silently up the mountain so riders ... [full story]

Q: This probably sounds strange, but I am 53 and believe I am happily married. However, two of my friends' husbands surprised them last year by divorcing them. Our last child finished school in May, got a job, and has moved into an apartment. My husband and I know this means a big change in our lifestyle. I have been a stay-at-home mother and am thinking what might lay ahead for me if my husband ... [full story]

Q: While our puppy was being vaccinated recently, our veterinarian mentioned in passing that she had never seen a case of distemper in dogs. This caused us to start thinking about why veterinarians vaccinate dogs for diseases that are no longer diagnosed. If distemper has been eradicated why should we spend our hard earned money for vaccinating our dog against it? We have great confidence in our veterinarian. However, we are beginning to worry about ... [full story]
