Rich: The key to a man’s mind is security

It has taken me all the years - proving that you can always learn important new things - to realize how sensitive men can be.

I get twice as much mail from men who have been offended over something I've written - it always has to do with something that pertains to what they perceive as their manhood - than I get from women over anything.

Thompson: Keep your sheets matched with this simple method

This has got to be one of the simplest and most common-sense tips I've ever written about. In fact, I often wonder why most people don't know about this tip. After you wash a set of linens, store them in one of the pillowcases. By doing this you'll ensure that you never have mismatched linens. (It's the simple tips that I love the most).

Myers: Father’s voice calms in trying times

Each night before I go to bed, I go into Chloe and Cole's rooms to check on them.

I make sure they're not about to roll off the edge of their beds. I make sure they're tucked under the covers. I stand there and watch their sweet slumber for a minute or two, then I steal one - or several - last kisses.

Wilburn: Make family mealtime special

For many American families, shared mealtimes are less and less common. In a recent national study commissioned by the White House and the YMCA, one in four parents reported that their families eat together four or fewer times per week. In that same study, one in 10 admitted that they eat only one or no meals per week with their children.

Rich: Man’s missing manners force an end to love

Rich: Scarlett heats up her fans, here and abroad

Thompson: Duct tape serves as an able protector

OK, here's your weekly duct tape tip. If you're going to be working with fiberglass insulation, you need to wear gloves and a long-sleeve shirt. In addition to that, wrap duct tape around your shirt sleeves and connect them to your gloves. By doing this, you'll keep glass fibers from getting on your wrists and irritating them. Trust me on this one.

Myers: God’s simple truths comfort better than human reasoning

As you well know, we've had some real weather excitement over the last week or so. Stormy weather always brings about a trying time in the Myers household. The reason is because Cole doesn't like thunder. In fact, it terrifies him.
