• What makes a creature an insect? In order to be classified as an insect, it must have three body parts (the head, thorax, and abdomen), six jointed legs, two antennae, and an outside skeleton. That counts out spiders and centipedes! There are 1,017,018 known species of insects in the world, but experts feel there might be another nine million that haven’t yet been discovered. Ninety-five percent of all the animal species on Earth are insects. • Insects are divided into 32 orders, with beetles as the largest order. There are 125 diﬀerent families of beetles, and half a million different species. Did you know that one out of every four animals on Earth is a beetle? In fact the world’s largest insect is a beetle found in South America, the longhorn beetle measuring 9.85 inches (25 cm). The world’s heaviest insect is also a beetle, the African Goliath beetle, which can weigh up to 3.4 oz. (96 grams). … turn the page for more!

CREEPY CRAWLIES (continued): • There’s a diﬀerence between an insect and a bug. A bug is actually an insect with characteristics other insects don’t have, such as a stylet mouth (one that is shaped like a straw) that is used to suck plant juices. True bugs have thickened front wings, which are colored close to the body, but clearer and thinner at the wing’s hind end. Cicadas, aphids, and stink bugs are truly bugs, but ticks, beetles, and flies are not. • Perhaps one of the most unpopular crawlies is the cockroach. It is one of the most adaptable creatures on Earth, which makes getting rid of them very diﬃcult. There are more than 4,000 species of this pest worldwide. They are cold-blooded and can live without food for a month. They can even survive for a week without a head. Because they breathe through little holes in each body segment, they don’t need a mouth or head to breathe. After a week of being unable to drink water, they die of thirst. A cockroach is able to hold its breath for 40 minutes, and can survive being under water for 30 minutes. No wonder they are so hard to get rid of! It doesn’t take long for a cockroach to spread bacteria throughout a home – they can run 3 miles per hour (4.8 kg/hr). Although the average cockroach is _” to 2” long (1.3 to 5 cm), one South American species is 6” long (15.2 cm) and has a 12” (30.5 cm) wingspan. • In the British Isles, the ladybug is called the ladybird. The ladybug is a type of beetle that can be red, yellow, black, grey, or brown, depending on the species, and might have spots, stripes, or no markings at all. Red and orange ladybugs have seven spots, three on each side and one in the middle. The number of spots has nothing to do with this beetle’s age. The number and placement of spots are determined by its species and are fixed well before the ladybug is born.

Centenary • Beside Old Jumbo Shelters Aren’t Only Place to Volunteer
DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I want to volunteer somehow to help pets in my area, but can’t really ﬁnd any opportunities. I called the local shelter, and they said they aren’t accepting volunteers right now. Why not? I thought shelters were desperate for help. Where else can I look? -Tanya J., via email DEAR TANYA: While some shelters accept any help that is offered, many have implemented more controlled volunteer programs. This allows them to have a better handle on which volunteers are available at certain times, who has more experience working with animals and who has less, and so on. A better question to ask your local shelter is whether it has any volunteer programs available, now or in the near future, or any other opportunities to help. If not, you can ask if it is afﬁliated with a
larger organization, such as the ASPCA, and ﬁnd a contact there who has information about volunteer opportunities. Many shelters offer fundraising events that are more fun and less work. If you’re not able to give money to the cause, you could offer to help at these events. Or, you can participate in charity walks -- either by yourself or by rounding up a group of friends -- and raise money that way. heck your local newspaper for event listings and news from the local shelter. Many newspapers have an online component, and could have a lot more information on their website in a section reserved for the local shelters. Visit the veterinarian and look for a bulletin board in the waiting room. If there is one, there likely are notices posted about events and volunteer opportunities. Or you can talk to the vet or an assistant during your pet’s checkup about your interest in volunteering somewhere, somehow. Send your questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Welcome to Goose Tips! Vacation season is fast approaching for many of you......Dining out while on vacation should not be a budget buster. Three meals a day can add up quickly for families on vacation and you shouldn’t have to eat fast food for every meal to afford to go out. What can you do to save money? Here are my best tips to cut down on the cost of dining out. When planning your much needed vacation, take the time to investigate what type of restaurants are near your destination. Be sure to sign up at the restaurants’ sites to receive savings offers and coupons thru email: Prior to departing, check your email for coupons and print them. While you are at the computer, be sure to print directions from your hotel to the restaurant. Be sure to use credit card rewards or MyPoints to offset dining out. Scout out your hotel for discounted dining coupons. Many times hotels will have coupons and discounts for nearby restaurants. A good place to look is in the entry way where all of the local attractions have their brochures. Restaurant.com is a great place to pick up dining discounts to use while on vacation. Take a few minutes to visit the www.restaurant. com site and type in the zip code or search for the city you will be visiting.

CREEPY CRAWLIES (continued): • Many countries, including Russia, Turkey, and Italy consider the ladybug a sign of good luck and those folks will make a wish when one is sighted. Ladybugs are very useful creatures, as they feed on aphids and other garden pests. • Termites cause nearly $5 billion in damage every year. These wood-destroying insects can destroy a home from the inside out before a homeowner even notices. Add up the weight of all the humans on Earth, and it will be less than the total weight of all the world’s termites! About 10% of the world’s animals are termites. Damp wood is an ideal nesting place for termites. So avoid infestation by dealing with leaking plumbing issues immediately. Be sure water drains away from the house, don’t stack any wood next to your home, and keep an 18” (45 cm) gap between soil and your foundation. Although termites can be extremely destructive, they can be ecologically beneficial. They break down dead and decaying trees in the forest into rich new soil. • Another 10% of the world’s animals are ants, with at least 1.5 million ants for every human being on the planet. There are more than 12,000 species of ants, and they can be found on every continent except Antarctica. One acre of Amazon rainforest is home to up to 3.5 million ants. Ants are hardy creatures, able to survive 24 hours underwater, with many varieties able to swim. They are the longest living of all insects, with a life span of up to 30 years. When seeking food, the colony sends out a scout ant, who wanders about until it finds a food source. After eating some of the food, the ant heads back to the nest in a straight line, leaving a trail of secreted pheromones, a scent that the other ants will be able to follow back to the food.

• On May 21, 1901, Connecticut becomes the first state to pass a law regulating motor vehicles, limiting their speed to 12 mph in cities and 15 mph on country roads. The proposed legislation had requested a speed limit of 8 mph within city limits. • On May 23, 1911, the New York Public Library, the largest marble structure ever constructed in the United States, is dedicated in New York City. The day after its dedication, some 40,000 citizens passed through to make use of a collection that already consisted of more than a million books. • On May 19, 1935, T.E. Lawrence, a former British Army officer known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia, dies as a retired Royal Air Force mechanic living under an assumed name. The legendary war hero, author and archaeological scholar succumbed to injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident six days earlier. • On May 20, 1969, Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), in a Senate speech, condemns the battle for Ap Bia Mountain in Vietnam, which had become known as “Hamburger Hill.” During the intense fighting, 597 North Vietnamese were reported killed and U.S. casualties were 56 killed and 420 wounded. • May 24, 1989, “Sex, lies and videotape,” the debut feature from the 26-year-old writer-director Steven Soderbergh, wins the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The $1.2 million film was aggressively marketed by its distributor, Miramax Films, and went on to gross some $26 million. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

•If an American black bear is pregnant when it goes into hibernation, she could give birth without ever awakening. While she is still in her torpor, her body will draw on reserves of fat to produce milk to nurse her young. However, if something that could be dangerous to her young comes within 50 feet of the den, the mother bear’s heart rate will spike and she will wake to defend the cubs. • If you’re holding your nose, you can’t hum. Try it. • If you happen to be fortunate enough to spot numerous bears together in the wild (or unfortunate enough, depending on the circumstances), thanks to this column you’ll be able to call the group by its correct collective noun: It’s a sloth or sleuth of bears. • On a chemical level, there’s not too much difference between blood and seawater. • If you’ve ever looked closely at a zipper, you may have noticed the letters YKK on the tab. The letters stand for Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikigaisha, which is Japanese for “Yoshida Manufacturing Shareholding Company,” which produces most of the zippers found in the U.S. • An octopus has three hearts.

• A recent study by scientist Karl Berg suggests that an adult green-rumped parrotlet, a tiny bird native to Venezuela, will “name” its babies, assigning each a particular series of peeps to identify it. Not only that, other parrotlets then learn to associate that exact series of peeps with that particular bird, and actually use the sounds to get its attention.

• It was noted British lexicographer Samuel Johnson who made the following sage observation: “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.”
For Advertising Call (740) 446-4543 CREEPY CRAWLIES (continued): • Massive communities of ants called supercolonies have been discovered stretching for thousands of miles, with the largest ever found over 3,750 miles (6,000 km) wide. Ants are capable of carrying 5 times their body weight with their mandibles. • The 40,000 diﬀerent species of spiders are arachnids, not insects, since they have eight legs and only two body segments and have no antennae. While birds and bats eat a significant amount of insects, spiders eat more than those combined. • The largest species of tarantulas have a leg span of nearly 10 inches (25.4 cm) and have been known to kill mice, lizards, and birds. When tarantulas feel threatened, they defend themselves by throwing needly, barbed hairs at their attackers. Being hit by one of these causes an irritating rash and sometimes an allergic reaction, but very rarely does it result in death. Tarantulas molt continually, replacing their exoskeletons as they grow. This gives them the ability to even regenerate legs that have been lost. They are very fragile creatures, and a fall from a short height can easily kill them. The female tarantula can live 20 years in captivity and 30 years or longer in the wild. However, males have an average lifespan of between five and ten years.

Answer on Page 8
FAMOUS CANADIANS: DAN AYKROYD Did you know that famous funny-man Dan Aykroyd hails from Canada? Here’s the scoop on this Ontario-born actor, comedian, and screenwriter. • Aykroyd was born in Ottawa on Canada Day, July 1, 1952. His father, a civil engineer, was a policy advisor to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, while his mother worked as a secretary. Dan was born with two unusual physical characteristics, syndactyly, meaning he has webbed toes, and heterchromia – his right eye is green and his left eye is brown. • It was Aykroyd’s original ambition to become a priest, and he attended Catholic academies until age 17. He switched gears and decided, as the grandson of a Canadian Mountie, to study criminology and sociology at Carleton University, although he dropped out before finishing. For a time, he worked as a mail sorter for the Canadian postal service, as a train brakeman, and as a surveyor. • Aykroyd started out in comedy in assorted Canadian nightclubs. He met John Belushi in Toronto where Belushi was scouting out talent for the National Lampoon series. In 1975, the pair were hired for the new latenight show Saturday Night Live. Aykroyd, hired as a writer and doubling as a cast member, was just 23, the youngest on staﬀ. For the program’s first four seasons he established himself as a talented impersonator, famously mimicking Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Julie Child, and Rod Serling. He was the well-known father of SNL’s Conehead family and one of the “wild and crazy guys” alongside Steve Martin. Aykroyd received an Emmy Award for his writing in 1977, and four other nominations during his tenure. He and Belushi created the black-suited, sunglass-wearing Blues Brothers duo for the show and took it to the big screen in 1980 with a highly successful movie.

• In 1989, Aykroyd switched to a dramatic role in the classic Driving Miss Daisy and received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his efforts.
• In keeping with his love of the blues, in 1992, Aykroyd co-founded a nightclub in Cambridge, Massachusetts called The House of Blues, an operation that has grown into 13 locations. He also owns several wineries in Canada’s Niagara region. • Aykroyd’s wife Donna Dixon, whom he married in 1983, was a former Miss Virginia in 1976 and Miss District of Columbia in 1977. The couple has three children. Although a permanent resident of the United States, he retains his Canadian citizenship and maintains an estate on Ontario’s Loughborough Lake. Every year, he spends his Canada Day birthday performing civil service in Kingston, Ontario, including swearing in new Canadian citizens.

• The idea of Ghostbusters came to Aykroyd from his fascination with the paranormal after reading an article about quantum physics. He and fellow actor Harold Ramis wrote the script in a Martha’s Vineyard bomb shelter, tailoring the roles to fit John Belushi, Eddie Murphy, and John Candy. When Belushi died of a drug overdose in 1982 and Murphy and Candy were unavailable, the script was tweaked and Bill Murray, Ramis, and Aykroyd starred in the 1984 smash hit and its 1989 sequel.

Since May 24 is National Escargot Day, let’s take a look at another creepy crawly, the snail. • Snails aren’t insects, but rather are gastropods, a member of the Mollusks phylum along with slugs and conches. Their one-piece shell is coiled or spiraled. Gastropods rank second behind insects in the number of named species. Snails are triploblastic protostomes, which is a fancy way of saying they are made up of three parts – one foot, a head, and an unsegmented body. • The thousands of snail species include land snails, sea snails, and freshwater snails. The French delicacy escargot is simply cooked garden snails. (The name escargot is the French word for snail.) They are prepared by removing the snails from their shells and cooking in garlic butter, chicken stock, wine, and thyme or parsley. The snails are then placed back into their shells and served with the sauce. • That little garden snail has 14,000 teeth, all of which are on its tongue. It hibernates during the winter while living on its stored fat. Although most ground snails are passive little vegetarians, sea snails are predators with a sharp tongue resembling a harpoon that injects a deadly venom into their victims. The poison of certain cone snails can kill a human. • Since a snail could never hope to escape a predator, if danger is nearby, snails can withdraw completely into their shells. A flat plate on the back of their foot called the operculum seals up the opening. • How can you tell a male snail from a female snail? The answer is…you can’t! A snail is actually both, as they are hermaphrodites, which means their reproductive organs enable them to both lay eggs like a female and fertilize them like a male.

For Advertising Call (740) 446-4543 SNAILS (continued): • Snails produce a thick slime as they move which protects them as they travel across any kind of terrain. They can even crawl across the edge of a razor and come out uninjured, due to this shielding lubricant. The slime also creates a suction that enables them to crawl upside down. • Everybody knows that snails are slow movers, but just how slow are they? The average adult moves along at about 0.04 inches (1 mm) per second. Some travel at 0.0004 miles per hour. If those snails could circumnavigate the Earth, it would take upwards of 7,000 years. The speckled garden snail is the fastest, able to navigate at speeds up to 55 yards per hour (50.3 m), compared to just 23 inches per hour (54.4 cm) for most land snails. • Snails have very poor eyesight and cannot hear, so their senses of touch and smell are very important in the task of finding food. • The world’s largest snail is the Australian trumpet, a sea snail found on that continent’s northern and western shores. Its shell is as large as 30 inches (77.2 cm) in length, and the flesh can weigh as much as 40 lbs. (18 kg). The length of most species of snails ranges in size from a fraction of an inch to 12 inches (30.5 cm).

Q: I was a college student during the 1970s and still have a large box full of keepsakes from that period. I have early issues of “High Times,” a Happy Face cookie jar, a doughnut-shaped phone and an assortment of pop posters. I am thinking of having a garage sale, but keep hesitating. -Steve, Westminster, Colo. A: Several years ago, Michael Jay Goldberg, a Portland, Oregon-based collector, published a fun guide, “The Collectible ‘70s: A Price Guide to the Polyester Decade.” This might be helpful when determining what to toss and what to keep. Last year, while rummaging through one of my storage closets, I found a pile of 1970s comics: “Freak,” “Tales from the Fridge,” “Short Order” and “Psychotic Adventures.” Needless to say, I lost more than an hour revisiting these publications from my past, but what a blast. My advice is to think before you toss.

Cooking the Books When the Department of Veterans Affairs sends out a press release concerning allegations about one of its hospitals, you know big stuff is in the works. And when two U.S. senators (John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona) jump in and ask for a probe, heads are going to roll. In this case, they’re asking the VA Ofﬁce of the Inspector General to investigate “delays in care” in Phoenix. The senators didn’t mince words concerning allegations that as many as 40 veterans in Arizona died while waiting for their medical appointments, and speciﬁcally that hospitals were keeping secret waiting lists to fudge the wait-time numbers. What’s disturbing is that this isn’t new news. I’ve written about it here. It’s happened before. If you want to fudge the numbers for appointment wait times, here’s how you do it: --If you make an appointment that’s more than 30 days out, wait and then cancel the appointment. Immediately reschedule it for the same date, making the books look like the appointment had a shorter wait time. --Keep a separate set of books. Don’t put all the appointment requests in the ofﬁcial system. Keep a list off to the side and put them in later, to cut the perceived wait time. --Insist that patients appear in person to make an appointment. That’ll deﬁnitely cut the numbers down. The VAOIG has visited this topic before (Google “Audit of Alleged Manipulation of Waiting Times in Veterans Integrated Service Network 3” for what was uncovered in another state), and I’m sure they’ll do a ﬁne job unearthing the truth about Arizona. Bottom line: As long as upper management bonuses are tied to reductions in wait times, among other performance measures, this kind of thing isn’t going to stop.

Plastic and electronics make it all too easy to keep an arm’s length from your ﬁnances. But in return for that convenience, you give up your privacy and control. Financial wizards have predicted for years that we would become a “cashless society,” and we’re almost there. Consider: When you make a purchase with a card, a record is made of your transaction. When you dine out, a record is created of where you went and how much you spent. If you bought a bottle of wine at the liquor store, there’s a record of that, too. Consider: It’s believed by many that grocery stores that offer loyalty cards amass records of your purchases and sell them, at least to advertisers and possibly insurance companies. Consider: Insurance companies might take a close look at you based on your purchases and activities. Do you want them to know that you’re still buying sweets when you’re overweight and a borderline diabetic? Consider: When you pay with plastic, you spend more. There’s no immediate realization that you’re now minus the amount you just put on your card because you haven’t touched any actual cash. What to do: • When you go to the bank to deposit your check, take out more cash than you need for your immediate expenses. When you make a purchase, pay cash. If you make a large purchase, pay cash and you might even negotiate a deal with the merchant who won’t need to pay creditcard fees out of his proﬁts. Put away what you don’t immediately need so you’re not carrying around a lot of cash. But keep cash, always, available. • Manage your own bill-paying by writing checks, and avoid automatic bill paying. Sitting down with a paper bill will allow you to spot errors, as well as keep control of what gets paid when. • Never make a purchase or payment with your cellphone. The security on those is even less than computers. • If you have one of the “tap” credit cards for emergencies (it works by tapping once on a device at the cash register), request one without that feature. Tap cards can be read several feet away if someone has a card reader. Bottom line: Don’t give up your privacy and control for the sake of ease and convenience. Research “cashless society” online and determine if that’s where you want to go.

DEAR DR. ROACH: Two years ago, at age 90, my gynecologist told me that I did not need to see him anymore because of my age. When I mentioned this to my daughter, she became outraged, and said that I need to continue my mammograms and visits to the doctor. What is your opinion? -- I.W. ANSWER: This is actually three questions in one, and none of them is easy. How long do you “need” to continue Pap smears and mammograms, and do you need to keep seeing your gynecologist? The Pap smear question actually is the easiest, since there is very good evidence that a woman who has had normal Pap smears regularly until age 65 is very unlikely to get cervical cancer. This does not apply to anyone with a history of cancer. When to stop mammograms is controversial. I feel that they can continue in healthy women indeﬁnitely, but especially in the presence of some other serious disease, a woman over 75 could choose to stop. I still recommend a regular visit with the gynecologist. Even if a mammogram or Pap smear isn’t being done, the gynecologist can discuss other concerns and do an exam. Questions about breast cancer and its treatment are found in the booklet on that subject. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Roach -- No. 1101W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: Our 48-year-old son has been diagnosed with pityriasis rubra pilaris. He is miserable with the burning, red rash and the loss of skin cells. He now has extremely
See Complete Photo Gallery at auctionzip.com
ANSWER: Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is a rare inﬂammatory skin disease of unknown cause. Generalized redness, sometimes with islands of unaffected skin, is common. Scaly plaques and raised red bumps also occur. There are several treatments that have been effective for some people, but nothing is effective for everybody. Vitamin A derivatives are the usual ﬁrst treatment, but morepowerful medicines often are needed. As is so often the case for rare diseases, ﬁnding the most experienced local expert (in this case, a dermatologist) can lead to better treatment for your son. I found a support group at www.prp-support.org.
DEAR DR. ROACH: Americans are infatuated with grilling, barbecuing and charring meat -- all forms of hightemperature cooking. Isn’t charred food carcinogenic, leading to stomach and colon cancers? -- S.B. ANSWER: Yes, charred meat is carcinogenic, at least according to the preponderance of the data. In fact, increased red meat of any kind probably increases overall cancer risk, but hightemperature cooking creates several kinds of toxic chemicals and increases colon cancer risk speciﬁcally. There is some evidence that leaner cuts of red meat aren’t as dangerous, and also that marinating, especially in wine, reduces the production of the dangerous chemicals. I recommend limiting consumption of high-temperature-cooked red meats. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

Q: My apartment has closet doors that fold open on sliding tracks. Over the past month, the doors have started sticking and one is completely off the track and just swinging open. Is this hard to ﬁx? Our maintenance guys aren’t so reliable. -- Mindy H., Atlanta A: If the slider attachment at the top of the door isn’t damaged, you should be able to easily put the bifold door back on its track. Reach up to the top of the detached door -- or climb onto a sturdy stepladder or footstool so you can reach -- and feel along the top near the front edge of the door. You should feel a round disc, or wheel, sticking up. Place your ﬁnger on top of the wheel and push down. If it’s spring-loaded, the disc will depress down and then spring back up. Check the bottom of the door as well. If the door opens along a top and bottom track, a similar wheel, or a simple metal pin called a pivot, will be located in the same position near the front of the door. It may or may not have a spring. If both wheels are in good shape, great. If either one is broken or missing, contact apartment maintenance to have them repair the door. Or, if they don’t respond, contact management and ask if they can either speed up the repair, or if you can do the repair yourself and have them take the difference off the bill (you’ll need to give them a receipt for parts and labor). Let’s start from the premise that both wheels are all right. It’s a pretty easy ﬁx, made easier if a friend helps steady the door. If one of the wheels isn’t spring-loaded, carefully ease that rigid wheel into the corresponding track. Then reach up (or down) to the spring-loaded disc, depress it with one ﬁnger, and guide that part of the door back into its corresponding track, sliding your ﬁnger out of the way until the disc pops up into the track. Move the door back and forth a couple times to test it. What if the door doesn’t seem be straight? That can cause the wheels to stick in or jump out of the tracks. You can adjust the door in a number of ways: The Family Handyman website (www.familyhandyman.com) has a step-by-step description of how to do it. HOME TIP: To smooth a sliding door’s path, put a thin coat of wax or silicone spray on the wheels. Send your questions or home tips to ask@ thisisahammer.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

They Lived to be 100 The U.S. Census Bureau has released a long-term research report on the differences between centenarians and seniors who are age 65 and older. Pulling in data from a previous report, Centenarians 2010, this research is an overview of 2007 to 2011 and focuses on marital status, education, veteran status, income and poverty levels. Here’s what it learned: -- Women made up the majority of those who had lived a century or more, at 81 percent. In the over-65 group, women were at 57 percent. -- Marital status: Most centenarians (82 percent) were widowed. Because of age, the over-65 group had a lower rate of 29 percent widowed. -- Education: A surprising 43 percent of centenarians did not ﬁnish high school. In the over 65 age group, 23 percent didn’t receive a diploma. Of those who went on to college, 15 percent of centenarians earned a bachelor’s degree or higher, with 21 percent of the over-65 group earning a degree. -- Veterans: Only 0.5 percent of women centenarians were veterans, but the number wasn’t much higher for women in the over65 group, with 1.15 percent veterans. -- Income: Of the centenarians, 83 percent received Social Security, compared to 88 percent of the over-65 group. The amount of beneﬁts was lower, of course, for the centenarians because Social Security is based on what you put into the system. Of the centenarians, 17 percent lived in poverty, compared to 9 percent of the over-65 group. Want to live to be a centenarian? Dr. Thomas Perls, co-author of “Living to 100: Lessons in Living to Your Maximum Potential at Any Age,” has some tips: Be adaptable and ﬂexible. Get rid of stress. Be optimistic. Exercise. Own a pet. Those are good goals for people of any age. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.
