    If so, you may be locked into a power struggle, due to unresolved anger. 

    Not that you scripted any of this. It’s an all too common pattern that sneaks up on couples. Before you know it, hurt feelings drag into long term frustrations that can be damaging — or even fatal — to a relationship. 

  • When I make a beef stew, the first step is batch-searing pieces of chunked beef, usually splattering grease all over my stovetop. It’s messy, but a necessary step when making stew — always brown the meat!

  • It was 2016, the year Richard Gere engaged with the invisibility of homelessness. For him, it was time out of mind. For the homeless ones, it remains enigmatic, a lengthy duration of time, longer than is readily remembered. It is also deeply embedded in a memory bank which gains interest with each passing moment.

  • The big question is … will you weigh the same Jan. 1 as you do right now? Weight gain during the holidays is common and many Americans gain between one and five pounds. While that doesn’t sound like much, too often these extra pounds aren’t lost after the holidays. And this goes on year after year. This holiday season, the only thing that should be “stuffed” is the turkey.
