Whenever you get so tired and exasperated that you feel you can't look after mom or dad a moment longer, you might want to think about Pam Hoye. Then, take a deep breath and march back into the fray. I met Pam through the online caregivers support group at SanDiegoEldercare.com. She adds so much to the discussion that I didn't realize she has cerebral palsy; she works very hard to stay in touch with us. ... [full story]

Politicians are certainly imaginative when it comes to their infidelities. You have your office romances (Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick), your restroom shenanigans (Idaho Sen. Larry Craig), your "Whoops! I'm really gay" flings (former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey) and your utterly inexplicable hanky-panky (Bill Clinton).   ELIOT SPITZER - Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's reputation for honesty makes the recent prostitution scandal that much more surprising. CNS Illustration.  Eliot Spitzer, the former New York governor who ... [full story]

Q: Last month we were shocked to learn that our daughter and son-in-law were considering divorce. After nearly 18 years we believed they had a successful marriage. They have raised two fine children and are financially in good shape. How can we help? A: Your adult children are going through one of our life's major transitions. Their attitudes, priorities and goals have changed. Your daughter may be a stay-at-home or career mother. Now she may ... [full story]

The bad news continues to mount: the stock market has dipped below 12,000, the lowest in several years; the employment picture is dismal for the third month in a row; unemployment has risen, not including those who, discouraged by several months of fruitless trying, aren't even applying for a new job. Older people on a fixed income may be hardest hit. So are those who depend on regular income from savings and investments. A friend ... [full story]

Long the sovereign domain of arctic explorers and hardcore adventure trekkers, Greenland abounds with the cracking sounds of calving glaciers, treks beside behemoth ice flows and visits to Inuit villages. Experiencegreenland.com recently launched an interactive educational Web site featuring two new travel packages that meld arctic authenticity with convenience and capitalize on Air Greenland's five-hour connection from Baltimore to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, that started last year. This summer Air Greenland will operate flights every Thursday from ... [full story]

"Cannery Row - is a poem, a stink - the whole street rumbles and groans and screams and rattles." - John Steinbeck, "Cannery Row" MONTEREY, Calif. - Things haven't changed all that much since the sardines left Monterey Bay in the mid-1940s and all the canneries closed down.   LONELY TREE - A lone cypress clings to the rocks on 17-Mile Drive, a private street that meanders through the coast and past the homes and golf ...

SANT'ERASMO, Italy - La Serenissima (the most serene) is the nickname for the magical city of Venice. But when I got there during high tourist season last July and joined the crowds in the Piazza San Marco, the scene was far from serene. An American couple passed by grumbling about the 10-euro prices for a Coke at the Caffe Florian. A toddler wailed as his parents struggled to set him up for a photo in ... [full story]

Q: Our veterinarian recently told us about a little boy who lost his sight in one eye because of a roundworm infection, which he might have gotten from his puppy. We were thankful that our veterinarian told us about this and that she recommended periodic stool sample checks to be sure that our dog does not have internal parasites. Are roundworms commonly diagnosed in puppies? A: Unfortunately, finding roundworms in puppies is fairly common. It ... [full story]

As if planning a funeral isn't confusing enough, there's a new option: "green" burials. Some families are forgoing formaldehyde embalming and laminated caskets in favor of eco-friendly, natural-fiber shrouds and coffins made from cardboard, recycled newspapers or bamboo, lined with unbleached cotton. I flashed on this trend while reading a new report about prepaid funeral-plan scams. A 2007 AARP survey of 1,087 Americans 50-plus found that 23 percent made prepayments on funerals, burials or both. ... [full story]

Oregon's share of the Pacific coastline owes its international reputation to the rugged beauty and natural wonders found along its 363-mile stretch. Unlike other states, all of Oregon's beaches are protected from encroachment and entirely open to the public, so visitors can play along the Pacific and experience its pristine splendor.   SAFE SHORES - The Heceta Head Lighthouse, perched on the cliffs of the central Oregon coast, is one of the few in the country ...

Almost every day, Vanessa Wilbourn looked forward to a cup of tea from Starbucks on her drive to high school. Then several weeks ago, she started wondering about whether her habit was good for the Earth. After watching a TV show about practical ways to become environmentally conscious, she decided to start small.   SMALL CHANGES - Sisters Trina Koller, left, and Trudy Balestreri sort through the first shipment of the reusable shopping bags they designed. ...

Q: Several years ago my family designated me as the family historian. I enjoy being so, and at our annual family picnic I disperse the latest information. A cousin recently called and reported she had heard the government was releasing a lot of new census data. If this is so, can you direct me to how I can find it? A: Your cousin is correct. Census information is released through the Census Bureau and the ... [full story]
