I am submitting two more: Prior to our wedding, my husband and I had the state-required blood tests. They were administered by a Dr. Fix. (We later read that Dr. Fix was caught giving himself one, and was arrested on drug charges.) The minister who married us was aptly named Dr. Comfort. - ANN B., ARCHER, FLA.

Ask Dr. Gott 12/13

DEAR DR. GOTT: My grandson has a very hacky cough that is very noticeable when I talk to him on the phone. Our family is concerned that it could become a big problem as he grows older. He is 41, has never smoked and has a very high-stress job that requires him to have a physical each year. He is on high blood-pressure medicine, also. Could the medication or stress have an effect on him, causing this cough?

Outdoor Life: Lessons in entrepreneurship

Back during the land boom of '04 I came up with one of my bright ideas. I'd heard of guys who were making tons of money in land development and decided to take my rightful place among those successful entrepreneurs. Like any good businessman I started off with a reasonable mission statement. "It is my intention to rake in enough money to retire and just live off the fat of the land." That sounded pretty good so I proceeded forward and put together a business model.
