Dear Abby | Dad dating ex-wife causes daughter to feel betrayed

Dear Abby: I have a complicated family situation. My dad was married to a woman named “Cynthia” for 16 years until they divorced. He met and married my mother the next year. My parents were married for 40 years, until Mom died of cancer a year ago. Since her death, I have gone with my dad to a few holiday events hosted at his other daughters’ houses, where we saw them and Cynthia. Everyone was cordial and welcoming.

These old dogs are special picks at sanctuary

NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. — Eleven dogs greet visitors at the door of the lovely 115-year-old Victorian house. There’s a lot of slow-motion tail wagging but very little barking and no jumping up and down. Most of the dogs have a lot of white around their muzzles, several limp a bit, and some have the rheumy eyes that come with great age.

Sweet! Some tasty ways to make the most of corn on the cob

If there were a signature summer dish of my childhood, it was corn on the cob. Sweet, tender and juicy. Is there anything better? My father loved it. Still does, though he doesn't eat a half-dozen ears in a sitting as he once did.

Chocolate-covered beans give extra kick to iced coffee

Lunch on the town is all long skirts, tall drinks and sunny salads. What's better than old friends and new outfits? We lunched, we lounged, we lingered. Sans coffee, we listed toward the car, which perversely had left.

In the Garden | Needle cast is not usually a cause for concern

The average person sheds 100 hairs a day. Shedding for cats and dogs is stimulated by the light changes occurring around the equinoxes. Trees also shed. We understand deciduous leaves turning color as the light wanes and falling from the tree with the first frost. What is less understood is evergreen needle cast, or shedding of the two- or three-year-old needles from the branches.
