What do the following comments have in common? "I've given her tongue lashings that would wake the dead and ostracized her to the point of feeling guilty like an abusive jailer." "I've bitten her on the neck and stared her straight in the eyes." "I use a pronged training collar, which makes a world of difference." "When she goes after my hand, I push it farther into her mouth." "What can I do? I have ... [full story]

Q: Like most seniors, we are trying to adjust to a recent stream of increases in the cost of basic necessities. Our cereal packages are larger, but the actual contents are less. Gasoline is moving up by pennies, and we are paying more for utilities because of newly tiered pricing based on usage. Are there simple ways to ease our pain? A: Yes, there are ways. Start by cutting the fat from your current budget. ... [full story]

It has been 10 years since I was assigned to help count a tiny bit of America for the Census Bureau. It was an intriguing and, I must confess, bizarre experience. And now it is time for the Census again — that massive federal undertaking that takes place every 10 years. It is an effort to count everyone in the country. I will be sitting on the sidelines this time, but it is a job ... [full story]

My young son likes to sing at the top of his lungs: "Dirt, you made my lunch! Thank you, dirt! Thanks a bunch!" How poignant that this boy gets what so many of us adults are missing: a basic understanding that we owe our very existence — the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and the air we breathe — to dirt!   "One heaping tablespoon of dirt contains more microorganisms than there are people ...

Dear John: I have the greatest girlfriend in the world. We have just been through our first semester at college. However, we've had our share of fights, usually when she gets really jealous and feels that I look at other girls. I tell her that they mean nothing to me, but I don't think she believes me, so how do I convince her? — One-Woman Guy, in Washington, D.C. Dear One-Woman: From what you say, ... [full story]

There are some things we just don't want to hear: The disease is incurable. The relationship is over. The economy won't rebound anytime soon. The dog is aggressive is a big one in my business. A firefighter back east called last week with a real head-scratcher. He has a 3-year-old Cane Corso, which is an intelligent and powerful Italian mastiff breed. He discovered the dog in an abandoned warehouse a couple of years ago and ... [full story]

Like many of our friends, we took care that our children were not in the room where we discussed family finances, just as our parents and grandparents had before us. Money was a taboo subject. Now, though, given the financial circumstances today, we need to get rid of that outmoded idea and include children in discussions about finances. Children of all ages know when their family faces altered financial circumstances. They notice when they are ... [full story]

A few years ago, we employed a baby sitter who was obese, smoked and loved all the wrong foods. She routinely brought buns and cookies to our house to share with our children. She rarely exercised other than walking to and from her car. We read in the newspaper recently that she had died - in her 50s. Henrietta could have been a poster child for the latest report from the National Center for Health ... [full story]

In a land of honking horns, chirping cell phones and drive-through attention spans, there isn't time to be patient. Pick your poison: consumerism, materialism, self-absorption.

Q: We are really puzzled by our dog's strange behavior. Although we are absolutely positive that she has never been bred, she is acting like she is pregnant! Our dog's mammary glands are enlarging and she has a little discharge from her nipples. She looks like she is getting ready to nurse puppies. When our dog was in season several weeks ago we did not let her go outside without us. There is just no ... [full story]
