Some of the common injuries that we see in the summertime are animal bites. People are outside more often and walking through neighborhoods. Families go and visit other families.

In 1767, Englishman Dr. Joseph Priestley developed the process by which one could flavor water beverages. His first flavors included sasparilla, birch bark, dandelion and several fruit-flavored drinks.

In last week's column, I suggested that the easiest way to begin planning your wedding is to make a list of your (and your fiancé's) fantasy wedding requirements. Now, however, is the time to get down to the bottom line. A wedding should not, under any circumstances, put your marriage in the red. The ugly truth is that, according to wedding author Jennifer L. Shawne, the average wedding costs about twenty thousand dollars. Yep, that's a two followed by four zeros.
An old saying suggests that opinions are a little like noses - everybody has one. Well, everyone does have opinions ... at least one, and on just about every subject under the sun.

Q: I have three kids, ages 8, 6 and 4. I need help solving the "pick up the playroom" dilemma. When an area in which they've been playing needs to be picked up and straightened, the 8-year-old always ends up doing all the work. The other two continue to play or just pretend to help.
