Dear Heloise: I keep an index card taped on a door near the kitchen, so as I become aware of needed groceries and other items, I jot them down. I usually forget them if I don't do this. Then, when I go to the grocery with my index card, it is easy to attach it to the grocery cart right above the top storage section to scratch off items easily as I grab them! more
Dear Annie: I lived a parallel childhood with the pain of an extremely abusive mother and a father who buried his head in the sand. I did confront him years ago about why he didn't protect me, and he was thoughtful and then emotional when he replied, "I guess she treated me that way, too, and I was afraid of centering her attention back on me. I never thought about how hard that must've been for you." more

Dear Heloise: Regarding Courtney W.'s question about alleviating dry winter skin, I would like to recommend using a humidifier. I've used one for years due to dry skin, and it helps not only my skin, but also my dry hair and sinuses. They're readily available, as is the distilled water used in them.

Dear Heloise: I just read the suggestion of the lady from Louisiana about using crib sheets to protect pet beds. I discovered a king-sized pillow would fit a large-sized travel crate. That was my little doxie's, Charlie, favorite place to nap in the daytime. Before I put it in the crate, I covered it with a water-proof pillow protector and put a pillowcase over that. I bought washable pillows. They lasted until he finally chewed a hole and started taking the stuffing out. more
