The year ahead could produce a variety of interests that will stimulate your senses both intellectually and artistically. It will enable you to see things in ways that'll better help you put everything in your life together.
DEAR DR. GOTT: You mentioned gangrene of the bowel in your column. I had never heard of this until recently. A friend of mine had a colonoscopy last September and had no problems detected. However, in November, she had a severe pain on a Sunday night, was sent to the emergency room of the hospital and had her colon removed the next day. Gangrene had started to occur.

Not connecting the incident to the popcorn/almond treat, he ate it again about a week later. This time he went into anaphylactic shock, and they were not able ...

DEAR READERS: On Tuesday, I shared the responses I received from women to a letter from a lady, "No Hugs Please," (9/13) in Alabama. She asked what could be done about "Uncle Harry," a man in his mid-70s who insists on bear-hugging almost all of the women he meets. The letter generated many responses from male readers. And I thought you might be interested to see how they felt he should be "handled." Read on:
