When Do You Know You're Drinking Too Much?

Those with mood, anxiety or attention deficit disorders or addictions in their family history are at greater risk. Once you note those factors, take the CAGE questionnaire (have you thought about Cutting down on your drinking, become Annoyed by criticism of your drinking, felt Guilty about your drinking, or had a morning drink as an Eyeopener). If you need hard numbers: "If every time you go out you have 4 or more drinks, and you're going out more than 3 or 4 times a week, you have a problem!

Avoid Turning Your Dog Into Your Worst Enemy!

  • Don't Buy a Dud. Ignore that doggy in the window-most pet stores get their canines from "puppy mills" that line-breed unsound animals. Instead, find a breeder who asks a lot of questions. If they want you to sign a contract to spay or neuter, they obviously care about genetics.
  • Don't Take Crap. Dogs can't learn after the fact, so unless you catch him in the act, he won't understand why you're shoving his nose into that steaming pool of sloppy ploppy expanding on the living room rug. Also, remember to crate him at night. Dogs are den animals that won't soil where they sleep.
  • Don't Be Mean. Expand your program to "lure training" holding treats above his nose to get him to sit and near the floor to get him to lie down. Dogs burn out quickly. 15 minutes of training beats an hourlong session. In other words, wait until you have a kid to push something way too hard.

High-Def TV Without Paying A Cable?

You need an HDTV with a built-in digital tuner (or an HD-ready TV and a connected external HD tuner). If your local TV stations transmit a digital signal - go to and enter your zip code to find out-buy an antenna and view the local high-def NBC, Fox, etc. If your tuner has a built-in QAM support, you can often get unencrypted video-on demand programming ordered by the folks in your service area. Free soft-core...yay!

Cheaper Way To Whiten Teeth

Instead of going to an expensive dentist just to whiten your teeth due to surface stains, why not just check these facts?

Surface stains can be lessened by a whitening toothpaste using a mild abrasive and polishing agents. There may also be deeper discoloration of the enamel, which requires bleaching. Bleaching by a dentist uses a carbamide peroxide gel and can cost over $1,000. Save coin by rinsing with diluted hydrogen peroxide from a half-teaspoon of baking soda and a mashed strawberry. Leave on for five minutes, follow with a normal toothpaste, then rinse.
