DEAR DR. GOTT: It is true that God alone is the author of all life and he alone must be allowed to end it. I think we are forgetting that right after death we must stand before God and give an account of our actions. Do we want, at that time, to be guilty of robbing God of his own power?

DEAR ABBY: I am a grandmother of five. I love my children and their children. However, when they visit, the parents of my grandchildren rarely supervise them. My house and yard are somewhat "childproof," but the kids still get into a lot of things they shouldn't. As I am the only one who seems to witness this, I feel like I am forced to be the baby sitter rather than being able to enjoy the family.
DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a white male, 73 years old. My problem is that sometimes my left arm muscle really hurts, and my left shoulder, too, for two to three minutes, and then that goes away. At the same time, my sternum hurts also, for about the same time. My wife and I try to walk 3 miles a week. We don't eat much red meat. We eat salads, veggies, baked potatoes, etc. In 2004, I had a stent. I've been to three doctors, with very little help. At times I can walk 30 feet or so ...
Australian Bridge is a bimonthly large-page-format magazine containing the usual mix of tournament reports, instruction and quizzes, including a bidding competition with answers based on the opinions of an expert panel. (The Bridge World, Bridge Magazine and New Zealand Bridge also have this feature.) Look at the South hand and the auction. What would you rebid?
Your prospects look very encouraging, especially where your work or career is concerned. Much of it will be due to your efforts and talent, but Lady Luck will have a hand in helping out as well.
Bridge Plus is published monthly in England, in a small-page format. Although it aims primarily at tournament players, there are several articles and quizzes for those hoping to become duplicate winners.
In the year ahead, your sphere of personal influence is likely to expand considerably, both in your social world and with your work-a-day involvements. Good connections, opportunities or expansions will bring you this success.
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have reached an impasse about - of all things - mothballs. We were remodeling our house last spring, and tiny moths showed up in the bottom story. "Arnold" (my husband) went to the store and brought back mothballs for his closet, which is on the second floor. I told him they smelled horrid, but understood he was trying to protect his clothing. The moths never went to the upper level, and no one in our family had moths in his or her closet.
DEAR DR. GOTT: You doctors are brainwashed by the drug companies. All you ever do is prescribe medications, which only suppress symptoms, not cure disease. There are cures for diseases if you would tell people to go seek alternative medicine. All major diseases can be absolutely cured by homeopathic remedies. Drugs kill people every day; they make people sick. The more drugs you take, the sicker you become. Drugs are all garbage. Go study alternative remedies. You will be surprised what you might learn. People need to become aware of alternative medicine and the health care industry. Drugs are the ...

It's a cycle where you can do some extraordinary things just by trying. Now is the time to get those innovative ideas or inventions you've been unable to promote to the marketplace. Cleverness will sell.
DEAR DR. GOTT: In the newspaper there was an article about Mexican treats containing extremely high levels of lead making their way across the border into our stores. It named the many serious problems caused by exposure to lead at these levels. Why is it that these products are allowed in our stores? Where is the Food and Drug Administration?
DEAR ABBY: When I go to parties or functions, I often hear subtle or direct gay-bashing. The source is never married people. Married people talk about their kids. No, it is usually single men, often ones who are ex-jocks.
