Real men wear aprons

Aah, men who cook – we women just love them! The number of men cooking at home is growing. More and more they are the ones doing the sautéing, slicing and dicing. The days of June Cleaver are gone.

Have you ever seen pictures of places like France, where workers currently are on strike and the garbage is not being picked up? It just accumulates. When you see mountains of uncollected trash on streets and curbs, it is easy to understand how much waste we create every day. Studies consistently show that Americans - yes, we are the trashiest of all - create anywhere from four to seven pounds of trash a day per person ...

Keeping skeletons in closet often OK

Q: My ex-husband and I aren't friendly. Ours was his second marriage. His first marriage produced a child, but when he and his first wife divorced, he renounced all parental rights. Our son is now 16. I always hoped he'd tell our son about his first marriage, his other son and how his alcoholism played the biggest role in our divorce, but he never has. I've had chats about the divorce with our son, but I'm wondering if I should tell him about his half-brother. I don't want my son to find out later and ...

Teasing others is sign of insecurity

Q: My 10-year-old daughter has been asking for a year now to shave her legs. So far I have said no, mainly because putting a razor in the hands of a 10-year-old doesn't seem safe. Though she is small for her age and not even close to starting puberty, her legs really are quite hairy and she gets teased about them sometimes. I don't want to promote vanity, but I hate to see her self-conscious over something that is simple to fix. Is it totally inappropriate for a girl her age to be shaving her legs? If so ...
