With the month of May honoring moms, it is a great opportunity for moms to take a break and be appreciated for all their hard work. Moms keep busy trying to maintain a healthy work/life balance. And the economic downturn has made it even more difficult to keep this balance.
Twelve percent of working moms say their spouse or significant other has lost their job in the past year, according to a CareerBuilder.com survey that questioned 604 working moms. These job losses have taken a toll on home life — 67 percent of respondents say it has caused more stress at home.

One father's tragic loss of a son sparked another father's message to his own son that made for the best Father's Day gift I ever have gotten.
Ted Koppel's 40-year-old son, Andrew, was found dead in a New York apartment earlier this month. He had been drinking too much, and his death ended what was probably a long struggle with alcoholism.
I tried to help his family about a decade ago, after his father called mine seeking guidance.

The oil spill along our Gulf Coast highlights the fact that we must transition our nation away from fossil fuels. As millions of gallons of oil ruin ecosystems and people's livelihoods, millions of taxpayer dollars are being used to mop up the mess. The answer to our higher energy costs, flagging economy and loss of local industry is to transition now to renewable energy sources. Could there be a more potent exclamation point?

Q: My wife and I have always enjoyed Donovan's Steakhouse in La Jolla, Calif. Their steaks are absolutely the best you can find, but we also really love their sautEed mushroom side dish. They're so good, I honestly think I could eat those as a meal all by itself.
We've tried to recreate them at home and have not even come close. If you could get the recipe, it would be greatly appreciated. They are described on the menu as SautEed Mushrooms; button mushrooms sautEed with thyme, rosemary and black pepper.

Dog owners may not always realize that once they bring a dog into their homes, they are now, at least in the dog’s view, a pack. Pack animals, as you may know, are highly social creatures and dogs are no exception. They require socialization, leadership, lots of healthy exercise and clear rules and structure.

Who says you can’t teach an old dad new twists? All across the nation this Father’s Day weekend, people are telling their fathers, grandfathers, and other special men in their lives about a new “twist” in the law that may help them qualify for extra help paying for costs associated with their prescription drugs. When you’re spending time with Dad this weekend, ask him if he can use some help paying for his prescription drugs. If so, tell him about the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan and the extra help available through Social Security.
