Ask the Expert

CAR TALK

Subscriber onlyDEAR CAR TALK: My husband insists that he does not have to use turn signals if he is in a designated turn lane. I disagree, and we argue about this whenever it happens.

Helpful Hints

DEAR READERS: It is time again to tell you about a worthwhile charitable group I've been writing about for more than 30 years. You keep asking -- all year long, mind you -- so here we go. How can you do a good deed rather than throwing out holiday (and other) greeting cards we all seem to accumulate?

IN THE GARDEN

It has lived in the house, and it has never flowered. It has thorns on it by each one of the leaves and is now about 6 feet tall. Can you tell me what type of orange tree I have and whether it will ever flower? How I should take care of it to cause it to bloom? Continue reading...
