Q. When seniors gather, it doesn't seem to take long before we get to our aches and pains. You must get more than your share of that.
My friend, Pete, has instituted a "colonoscopy rule." He insists that, if a bunch of us geezers are talking about aches, maladies and visits to the doctors, everyone has to change the subject as soon as someone uses the word colonoscopy. Usually, we switch to grandchildren, which is a lot more fun.
But, while we are on the subject of colons ......

LaFontaine, who died in 2008, was dubbed "the voice of God" for his recordings of more than 5,000 film trailers, and thousands of television commercials, network promotions and video game trailers.
LaFontaine parodied his own career in TV commercials for Geico Insurance and the "Mega Millions" lottery game.

The life cycles of spring-flowering bulbs begin in the fall when roots are formed. The flowers and foliage...

After all, his parents named him after the Eric Clapton rock band, which released the 1970 landmark album, "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs," with Duane Allman playing slide guitar, Trucks says in a recent phone interview from the road during his tour.
And in the domino effect that happens in the world of rock 'n' roll, Derek became a blues guitar prodigy at age nine, playing public...
