IconTo tempt or not to tempt....that is the question.  Whether 'tis nobler to seduce already or ready-to-be overweight children with pop toys to get them to eat more fat and salt than a horse would tolerate OR find a way to combine good business sense and family-friendly nutrition?

IconI've been giving something a lot of thought lately, and have decided to share it with you - to influence you (if you're not already) to open up to friendships.

IconAs a "family member" and longtime listener, I was touched by the call from a woman afraid to inform her brother of his positive test results for a devastating disease (Huntington's). In your compassionate, firm way, you rightly said her brother must be informed despite the caller's fears of his committing suicide, adding you regret you have no magic wand. More >>

IconIs life throwing you a curve? Perhaps your husband of 15 years suddenly wants a divorce, although you thought things were going pretty well.

IconHow many times have you heard an adult say something like:  "I know I'm a mature adult, but I feel like a teenager on the inside?"  Sometimes, there's a real disconnect between what we see in the mirror and what we think inside our heads: More >>

IconAccording to one of my listeners, just because you stay at home with your kids, that alone doesn't necessarily make you a good stay-at-home parent.  She wanted more from me about how she could be the best she could be for them: More >>

IconI am unbelievably furious!  I have a new book coming out in January, entitled "Surviving Shark Attacks on Land."  It has to do with betrayal and revenge.  18 year old Tyler Clementi didn't survive his recent shark attack on land.  He killed himself by jumping off the George Washington Bridge in New York.  He posted a goodbye on his Facebook page just eight minutes before he ended his life.

IconHere's the skinny on KFC: the world's largest chicken chain's US same-store sales fell 7% in the second quarter of 2010.  Two weeks ago, KFC revealed more than 60% of Americans ages 18-25 couldn't identify who that "old guy" (Colonel Sanders) was on the KFC logo. Obviously, time for a change!  More >>
