Q: My wife and I have been married 31 years and retired last year. We did our homework and visited numerous communities and found one, which we believed to be ideal. We sold our home and moved. After six months here my wife is very unhappy, but I like it. Help! A: First, give your situation more time. Frequently, after we make changes we're not sure we've made the right ones. When we transition from ... [full story]

So, you are looking for a new career now that you have retired. A new beginning. Something markedly different. How about running for public office? I am not talking about some backbreaking endeavor that will take a million hours a week and massive fundraising. You don't have to run for the state legislature or Congress or for governor. How about a local office? Something like the school board. Well, I have convinced myself. When I ... [full story]

Q: Our magazines and newspapers always focus on New Year's resolutions at this time of year. My family is bugging me about my list. We share each other's lists and choose a winner as to who did the best job. I didn't win for 2007. This year I want to win. How can I? A: There is no magic, but here's a suggestion that I hope will make you the winner. Instead of making new ... [full story]

There seems to be a backlash this year against making those traditional New Year's resolutions that newspaper reporters like to write about every year. Our daily, the Frederick (Md.) News-Post, polled its readers and discovered that 30 percent were opposed to making resolutions. And a local radio gabber, Frank Miller, announced that he has given up on resolutions, too. Other writers around the nation are also disenchanted. "Annual vows don't really make sense," Sasha Cagen ... [full story]

Q: Several months ago my friends gave me a puppy to help me get through my depression. Unfortunately, the puppy is very active and I am actually depressed by not being able to train him properly. I have been tempted to give the puppy some of my antidepressants and other medications to slow him down. Giving him a small dose of my tranquilizer might just slow him down and help both us to be more ... [full story]

American centenarians are getting to be as common as designer jeans. But an e-mail from geriatric care manager Kathy Randall about 103-year-old Sophia "Sherry" Walsh caught my attention. "She's taught me so much about life, honor, respect and dignity." After recuperating from a fractured hip, then a fractured femur, the former Smith College English professor returned to Casa de Manana in La Jolla, Calif. There, she worked out daily on an elliptical machine. After a ... [full story]

Earl Holland, a World War II veteran, had long thought of Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego as a dignified place to be buried.   ASHES TO RED TAPE - Elizabeth Holland didn't know her husband, Earl, when he was 20 and in the Army Air Corps (family photo, inset), but she said he was proud of his military service and wanted Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery to be his final resting place. 'We thought we ... [full story]

Q: Perhaps it is because we are getting older, but when we observe our grandchildren's actions regarding their lives with which we disagree, we try to keep our mouths shut. Occasionally we do speak up, but are finding it harder and harder to do so. Recently, when I did so, my granddaughter disagreed and said, "All my friends are doing it." Are we the only grandparents getting this treatment? A: No! Allowing older members of ... [full story]

It looks like a Christmastime ruling by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, allowing employers to curb health benefits for retirees over 65 without facing an age discrimination problem, could hit a lot of seniors right in the pocketbook. At least that's the way the country's largest advocacy group for seniors, AARP, looks at it. The EEOC lets employers provide less health benefits to retirees receiving Medicare. There had been questions raised by AARP and ... [full story]

At first I thought it was a joke. Jamie Lynn Spears, baby sister of Britney, is pregnant. Surely, this wasn't happening in a family already under siege. Surely, she'd learned something from watching Britney spiral out of control. Surely, she wouldn't purposely ruin her charmed life as the star of "Zoey 101" on Nickelodeon. But it was true. Word spread like wildfire after she talked exclusively to OK!, a celebrity magazine, and the cable channel ... [full story]

Two young men on opposite sides of the globe, one in Australia, the other in San Diego, were fed up with the actions of their neighbors, but instead of moving away, they moved to do something about it online.   THE GRIPE VINE - Plugging away at his laptop in San Diego's University City neighborhood, Brant Walker founded RottenNeighbor, a Web site for people to rant and rave on about their neighbors. CNS Photo by Earnie ... [full story]

Q: I have often wondered if allowing dogs to run around freely in cars or transported in the backs of open trucks without being retrained ever causes accidents. A dog running around in a car has to be major distraction and most likely often blocks full vision of the driver. Do dogs ever fall out of the backs of trucks? It seems to me that there ought to be laws prohibiting the transportation of animals ... [full story]
