"If you remember to clip your toenails, you won't get holes in your socks. " It was practical advice that a mother would give ... and a child would remember. Not only was a directive given, but a consequence (or lack thereof) was provided. In this particular case, the advice surfaced in a party game. (Toenails in party games? I know. It sounds strange, but if you were there, you would have laughed, too.) Several years ago, my husband and I were among a group of couples who were guessing which friends' parents had given them particular advice.

The swimming lesson had just ended, and parents were invited into the pool. My son's teacher, Jennifer Myers, heard me say, "No, Tristan, use your left hand. " She also heard his response, "Tell me again, Mommy, which one is my left?" The young instructor leaned over from where she was sitting at the edge of the pool and said, "Hey, Tristan, do you know your letters?" He nodded. She told him she used to remember the difference between her left and right hands by holding her thumbs perpendicular to her index fingers.

Is right to control one's own body only for men? ?To the editor: For whatever reasons, a really useful and valuable defense of the right of privacy in the context of reproductive rights has been ignored. Why the concept of natural rights has not appealed to women or to lawyers has long been a puzzle to this writer. But the consistent focus on the right of privacy during the confirmation hearings of justices Roberts and Alito shows a deep public angst regarding how fragile this right is at present.

Recreational vehicle engineers continue to deliver new, exciting interior design concepts and residential-style features unheard of just a few years back. These features are adding a whole new level of home-style ambiance to our mobile palaces. One very big aspect of the new-style RVs is the so-called "dual-zone living" concept.
