Advice for Boomers & Seniors
Though the technology has changed, life's problems seem to be the same year after year. People face the same social and family issues today that they did when we were youngsters.
This advice column will consider some of your nagging questions and offer my gracious opinions in return. That's all they are - opinions. Not fact, not Gospel - just Dear Webby's opinions.
Some questions will be answered by Webby privately if you leave your e-mail. Others that are of general interest will be posted for all to read.
