Dear Savvy Senior,
Since retiring, my husband and I love to travel but hotel costs eat up our budget so fast we can’t stay as long, or go as often as we’d like to. I’ve heard that there are alternative lodging options like short-term apartment rentals or even house sitting that offer a much cheaper way to travel. How can we find these?
Assertiveness is an attitude and a way of acting in any situation where you need to do something like:
• Express your feelings (without being harsh/mean!)
• Ask for what you want, or
• Say “no” to something you don’t want.
But, you say, “To become assertive seems to have the belief that’ have the right to ask for what I want”!

Small stalks, small ears, poor kernel development…does this describe your corn crop this year? Or maybe the raccoons absconded with the crop! If this sounds like you there may be several factors at work. Drought at the wrong time can stunt your corn crop; cold damage can stunt corn (if you put your crop out early you could see a little stunting from a late spring cold snap); and poor drainage and poor soil fertility, especially nitrogen, can stunt the crop as well.
