Q: My husband was stock market wise and I never had to worry about our investment plans. I have substantial money and worry about keeping it for my family. Now my son, who is not knowledgeable about money, says my stockbroker is making too many trades and lost a lot of money in my account last year. Now my broker wants me to sell everything and stay in cash until the market gets better. What ... [full story]

Q: We have been offered a 10-week-old male German shepherd puppy for free. Since we have heard that large dogs often have severe hip problems, we are reluctant to accept this gift. We have always had small dogs and never had any major problems with them. Because we are on a limited income currently, we cannot afford to pay for surgeries or treatments. Although we want to help our friends, we do not know what ... [full story]

They were a unique group of men. One was a distinguished lawyer who had represented a Watergate figure. Another was a prominent psychiatrist. They all had one thing in common when they met every Friday a decade ago at a Washington church. They were suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. I thought of them the other day with the announcement of the latest number of Alzheimer's patients. There are now 5 million of ... [full story]

LAHAINA, Hawaii - "All aboard!" When visitors come to Hawaii, they expect to sunbathe, swim with the dolphins, scuba dive, snorkel, body board and surf. But take a train? You betcha. My husband Carl, an avid train nut, used to half-joke that he would visit Hawaii with me if only there were a train excursion. So I found one on Maui. It's the 200-passenger LK&P - the Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad, more fondly known ... [full story]

THE WINE ENTHUSIAST Reading "Red, White & Drunk All Over: A Wine-Soaked Journey from Grape to Glass" (Bloomsbury, $23.95), I couldn't help but compare its author, award-winning wine journalist Natalie MacLean, to George Plimpton. Plimpton was famous for participating in professional sporting events and then writing about the experience. His most famous sports romp was with the Detroit Lions as a backup quarterback during spring training. From that experience came a best-selling book and the ... [full story]

"John" began thinking something was wrong when he glanced down at his desk clock one dreary November afternoon. He had started his Saturday off from work like any other weekend, by hunkering down in front of his computer screen and losing himself in a world of fantasy computer games. John (not his real name) would play online video games allowing him to assume the identity of a fictional character, creating a new and different persona ... [full story]

Q: Our veterinarian has recommended that we treat our cats to prevent heartworms. Although we have had cats for many years, we have never been told that this is important nor have we ever heard of any cat having heartworms. We have always had our dogs on preventive treatments. Are heartworms a new thing in cats? Should indoor cats be treated? A: Although feline heartworm disease was first reported in 1921, most cat owners are ... [full story]

Q: The antique washstand seen in this photo has been passed down in our family from generation to generation. Although we don't have any official documentation, we believe an ancestor who was an accomplished carpenter originally made it. We do know that we descended from a long line of German carpenters and cabinetmakers; therefore, there is some creditability to the family history. In any event, it had been forgotten and stored in the basement of ... [full story]

With Easter approaching, our thoughts naturally turn to bunnies, a species that has proliferated throughout children's literature like - well - rabbits. From Peter Rabbit to Benjamin Bunny to the Velveteen Rabbit and the Runaway Bunny, most adults have a favorite character from the Leporidae world. One usually left out of this sentimental appreciation, however, is Uncle Wiggily, once a popular figure in books, games and newspaper comics, called by expert and author Ted Hake ... [full story]

We discovered the joys of Ireland during a glorious two-week vacation last summer. We found the Emerald Isle a gracious, welcoming country whose people are more than willing to chat and offer directions (whether they know the way or not). The Irish adore laughing and making visitors laugh and have never met a person they don't like. So we asked ourselves an obvious question: Now that we are both septuagenarians, or just about, why not ... [full story]

Question: When is burial insurance not really burial insurance and pays nothing upon death?  Answer: When it is a “decreasing term” policy. Who would buy such a policy?  The naïve, the vulnerable, and often, the elderly who wish to spare their family the expense of a funeral.  After all, that’s what a responsible person does—prepays the cost of being placed in the ground or burned in a very hot furnace.   Pro bono legal information and ...

Q: I am a widowed 81-year-old grandmother and have four grown grandchildren. I never fail to send all of them a card and a check on their birthdays. When they visit each one has an electronic device, which they tell me keeps them informed of everything they do. Apparently I have never made my grandsons' calendar, as I never hear from them on my birthday! I don't really need or want anything, but I can't ... [full story]
