  • How is it that marriage partners appear in many ways of their life to have emotional attachments to others with sufficient closeness to enjoy these relationships, while at the same time becoming more detached from one another in the marriage?
    What are some of the triggers that may have brought about the decline, and can marital life be restored and enriched so that it will carry the marriage for the lifetime?
    Well, I’m glad you asked these questions, so what follows are some things you may want to consider.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    I have received my Social Security check in the mail every month for more than 25 years, and now I’m told I have to switch to direct deposit. Do I have any options?

  • A Voice-Tribune reader recently asked about the worms in her chestnuts; well, I am afraid I am in the same boat. We have chestnut weevils. I love our nut grove for a multitude of reasons: it shelters our meat chickens that are ranging freely in its shade; the sheep graze and even munch on fallen nutmeat. In other areas we collect pecans and Chinese chestnuts among other offerings. The pecans are clean as a whistle this year but the chestnuts are a bust.

  • The hundreds of times I have been doing counseling with a couple who expressed this sentiment at the beginning of their counseling program reminds me of one of the most ridiculous advertisements of a product being offered: “just three easy payments,” “just three easy steps,” etc. How do they know that? And furthermore, if I am stupid enough to believe that offer, I should be ashamed of my use of my God-given intelligence if I buy that product or that offer.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    Is it important to compare Medicare Part D prescription drug plans every year? My pharmacist recommends it, but it’s such a hassle sorting through all those different plans. What can you tell me?

    Dear Confused,

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    In the news last month there was a public health alert urging all baby boomers to get tested for hepatitis C. Is this really necessary, and if so, what are the testing and treatment procedures?
    Weary Wanda

    Dear Wanda,

  • When in your life did you feel “I don’t need anybody” or  “I can do it all myself”? When did this happen in your life? What took place to develop this thought?
    Now, some of you had to fend for yourselves when you should have been able to depend on others to help you. This can happen when adults in your life have virtually abandoned the responsibility to care for you, so you were forced to grow up and survive by taking good care of yourself, or you may not have survived.
