Rosemond: Have strength to accept things you can't change

Question: My 4-year-old son is not fully engaged when he has a friend over for a play date. His twin sister makes friends easily and the difference between them is glaring.

Thompson: A hostess with the mostest uses a colander for ice

I hate it when I'm at a party and I go to get ice for my drink and the ice is floating in water. If you're hosting a party and you leave your ice out, consider putting it in a colander and then put the colander over a bowl. The melted ice will collect in the bowl and stay away from your ice cubes.

The other night I had a dream. I walked by Chloe's room and from the other side of her closed door I heard a conversation she was having with Cole. "So the long and short of it is, there is no Daddy.

Thompson: Forget the floss if your ring is stuck

If you have a ring stuck on your finger, there are several things you can do to get it off. The easiest method is to just hold your hand up in the air for a couple of minutes. See if the reduced blood flow is enough to loosen the ring. The next easiest thing to do is to apply some kind of lubricant like hand lotion, hair conditioner or WD-40. If this doesn't work for you, then your next best bet is to soak your hand in cold water for a while. (Note: This is why you should take ...
