Q: Is it OK to use all painted furniture in a room? We have inherited a couple of soft-blue painted pieces from my husband's European-born aunt, and now we would like to add more.
A: Usually, my knee-jerk reaction is a big yawn to anything that's all similar. But your bedroom is your private domain, your personal business. Close the door and live as you like, and never mind that the operative word for decorating today is eclectic, meaning a compatible combination of many styles, many colors, many materials.

The benefits of regular physical activity are overwhelmingly positive for everyone, but even so most Americans, including men, women and young people, fail to get enough exercise. Thirty minutes of moderate intensity exercise done five days a week substantially reduces the risk of dying from coronary heart disease which is now the nation’s leading cause of death. Physical activity can also decrease the risk for stroke, colon cancer, Type 2 Diabetes and high blood pressure. In addition, exercise may help you to lower cholesterol, control and maintain a healthy body weight, assist in the maintenance and development of healthy joints and bones, promote psychological well being and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

The previous generation Hyundai Sonata was a fabulous package but plain looking. The redesigned and re-engineered 2011 model is a swan. It can spread its wings as an elegant and emotionally styled car in a mainstream segment not known for rich-looking choices.
But the attraction is not superficial. Sonata has one of the largest interiors in the segment, a direct-injection, four-cylinder engine that gets 35 mpg on the highway, and it has thoroughly modern applications from transmission, to safety and quality.
