Getting old is expensive.  Getting sick is expensive.  Getting both old and sick is extremely expensive.  It can drive an otherwise loving couple into divorce. Two calls to the senior legal helpline this week came from older women seeking advice regarding the desirability and legal implications of obtaining a divorce; not because they no longer love their spouses, but for asset protection purposes.  In both instances, their husbands agree.  They don’t want the cost of ...

MONTALCINO, Italy - Wandering the hilly, narrow cobblestone streets in our home base of Montalcino, a medieval city of interlocking passageways, steps and alleyways curving around and through and behind and beyond the main square, I reminded myself that I was walking through history spanning 800 years.   WHERE THEY WORSHIP - St. Antimo's Abbey is a beautiful Romanesque church, located just south of Montalcino in southern Tuscany.

Q: Our children were given a kitten several months ago. At the time we did not even know the sex of the cat. We are now pretty sure that our cat is a female. Because our cat roams the neighborhood freely most of the time we are concerned that she might get pregnant. How will we know when she is old enough to breed? As you can tell, we are very ignorant about reproduction in ... [full story]

After talking with one daughter who is trying to care for her mom on the East Coast, I decided it's worth revisiting the subject of long-distance caregiving. Looking out for a parent is difficult. Add the constraints of distance and it can be even more frustrating. Believe me, my sister, Bobbe, and I tried caring for our ailing parents by plane and finally gave up. Mom and Dad had sort of agreed it was time ... [full story]

Steven Gimbel isn't a flirt. "I'm more of your analytical, nerd, geek type," he says from his Pennsylvania home.   FLIRTING AND HURTING - There is a line between flirting and leading someone on. CNS Illustration by Manny Franco.  But Gimbel, a philosophy professor at Gettysburg College, has given the topic much thought. "When you constantly observe 18- to 21-year-olds, it's something you see a lot of," he says. With only a little coaxing, Gimbel agreed to ... [full story]

Q: My best buddy died, and I have been asked to speak at his memorial. Should I fib a little and say he was the greatest guy in the world, or tell it like he was? We had been friends since grade school. Also, how long should I speak? A: Remember, you will only be a part of the ceremony and to keep your comments short, no more than three to five minutes. Write your ... [full story]

Isn't it time to return to the thrilling days of yesteryear - as depicted in those vivid radio shows like "The Lone Ranger," "The Shadow" and "Gunsmoke?" Television is in the doldrums as the writers' strike drags on. We are sentenced to watching reruns or old pilots resurrected from the cutting room floor - and, of course, there are endless "reality shows," far removed from reality. But there is a delightful entertainment medium that has ... [full story]

The daughter's situation isn't uncommon: A stubborn parent who needs help but won't take it. A caring daughter caught between duty and guilt, stymied by indecision and inexperience. Eleanor Roth, a friend in North San Diego County, asked me for help dealing with her stubborn mother on the East Coast. "I think she is terrified of losing her independence. She is mentally all there, but physically, she's a mess. Of course, I feel guilty because ... [full story]
