Greater Fort Lauderdale's Superior Small Lodgings program started in 1989, as an attempt to help small-hotel owners adapt from its days as a Spring Break mecca to the beach chic destination it is today. The collection of 72 distinctive owner-operated properties has released its annual lodgings directory for 2008. Tied together by high quality standards and an annual review, Superior Small Lodgings has a diverse array of properties, each with 50 rooms or fewer, located ... [full story]

Q: Our grandson and his wife had their first baby two months ago. They live nearby, and our grandson frequently comes alone to visit.

We won't soon forget the first snowfall of the season this year. Snow fell all day and night, creating an arctic scene in early December. When my wife, Kate, went out in the backyard to put our cats on their leashes, a requirement of our homeowners' association, her feet slipped on the ice and she went crashing down, landing hard on her elbow. Kate's a stubborn woman, and despite her pain and my entreaties, she ... [full story]

Q: Because our old dog has had several episodes that resemble strokes in humans, we are wondering if strokes occur in animals. Our old dog has demonstrated partial paralysis of his left side several times. After each episode he has recovered and appeared to be normal until the next episode. We have never taken our dog to a veterinarian for this problem. We have simply given our dog a lot of tender loving care and ... [full story]

Q: I'm celebrating my 71st birthday in February. My husband and I worked all of our lives and raised six wonderful kids. My husband died three years ago. During his lifetime we bought a large apartment complex to secure our retirement. It works. It was a strain at times, but today the rentals provide me with a large income. I am now considering remodeling my home, buying a new car, and/or taking a cruise. I ... [full story]

Q: Someone recently told me that fleas are involved in the fevers caused by cat scratches in humans. Although this seems strange to me I am quite interested in knowing about this relationship, since I am recovering from a severe scratch caused by my neighbor's cat. The cat that scratched me lives outside, so he does not like people and is very difficult to catch. I was scratched while trying to help my neighbor get ... [full story]

Q: Last week a friend of 26 years and I got into an argument about a political candidate which ended with her walking out of my house and slamming the door. Being born in the same town, we spent our girlish years laughing, finding husbands, having children and maturing together. I hope she is feeling as I do - there is no legitimate reason why we are mad at each other. Neither of us has ... [full story]

A couple of years ago we agreed to take part in a neighbor's campaign to win election to the Maryland legislature. Before we knew it, we were standing in the rain for hours handing out her material at the primary election. Then, days before the November election, we spent hours on Sunday making cold calls urging people to vote for our choice. We had fallen victim to "volunteerism" - agreeing to take part in an ...

YAP, Micronesia - Yap, a speckle of gold dust floating on the far western Pacific Ocean in the heart of the Western Caroline Islands, is an inspirational step back to the cultural magnificence of Micronesia.

ABRUZZO, Italy - Teenagers in skintight jeans and T-shirts were coupled on stone benches, sitting face to face with their legs entwined, gazing into each other's eyes and leaning in for gentle kisses. I was on the outer rim of the flat, rectangular park in Sulmona, a small town in Abruzzo, Italy, trying not to stare. Back where I live in Los Angeles, I never see these live, sigh-inspiring reminders of my long-ago high school ... [full story]
