Too much info online

Dear Annie: A couple of months ago, I met a guy at a concert and he added me as his friend on Facebook. Except for that one encounter, I don’t really know him. Tonight, I was strolling through Facebook and noticed a very disturbing post he had made. It bothered me so much that I […]

Situation grows intolerable

Dear Annie: I have been married for 50 years and don’t think I can stand one more day. The man I am married to was once everything to me. Now, as each day passes, I grow more resentful. I like him less and less, almost to the point of hatred. He has always been a […]

Dear Annie: I am six months into a separation from my husband of seven years. (The separation was his idea.) I thought our relationship was solid and was completely blindsided when he told me he felt deserted and lonely. While I am still hoping for reconciliation, I have recently begun seeing someone else. My relationship […]

A few years ago, Joan was put on disability due to a work accident. She […]

Leave the dog at home, huh?

Dear Annie: I would like to know why stores allow people to bring their pets inside. I have seen dogs sitting in the carts with their blankets as the owners push through the store. I often see one particular owner at the same store. She appears to like the attention the dog brings, as she […]

Still blames her for everything

Dear Annie: My son, “Robert,” is 50 years old. He has no contact with his older sister or me. When Robert was 13, my husband and I divorced. His father was a troubled person. He was a typical old-fashioned European father who believed in physical punishment, and used a belt when disciplining his son. I […]

HOLIDAYS2: Small but mighty: Stuffing stockings without fillers

HOLIDAYS2: Droning on Christmas: What’s that buzz?

By Catherine McNulty Special to The Enterprise Children are great wanters of things. They want a certain food for dinner; they want to stay up past their bedtimes; they want to know why the sky is blue. When it comes to technology, your kids probably know about the latest gadgets before you do. And of […]
