Murray: Keeping track of past greats and flops

Myers: It's OK to get help, but the trick is asking

What started out as a scary night ended up being pretty fun. A strong storm was moving through the area. The lightning and thunder woke both Chloe and Cole.

Thompson: Include a plunger in your party planning

The holiday season is upon us and I know that a lot of you will be hosting parties. Here is a tip that you're not likely to find in any of the women's magazines: Make sure that have a toilet plunger in every bathroom. I'm serious about this. Toilets always seem to know when you're throwing a party and that's when they decide to back up. By having plungers in each bathroom, you can avoid a really embarrassing situation for you and your guests. (Contributed by Bryan Reksten).

Myers: No matter how you squeeze, one size won’t fit all

We were getting ready to go somewhere, and I'd sent Chloe to her room to get her shoes on. She loves putting on her own shoes, so you can imagine my surprise when I heard her start crying and screaming. I walked into her room and immediately discovered the cause of the problem: she was trying to put Cole's shoes on her feet.
