I received this short email recently from one of my readers: "My skin used to be so oily, I was always complaining about the shine. And now that I'm going through menopause, things have changed. It's so dry that it feels like my face will crack! I'd like to get some oil back. Any ideas?"

I remember years ago when my grandfather was about 75, he had hip replacement surgery to help relieve the severe arthritis pain that limited his activities. From what I recall, it was a tough surgery and resulted in a lot of time in the hospital, followed by rehab, followed by more time to get back to his normal activities. And I knew plenty of other elderly people who were undergoing the same surgery.

I pass the Holocaust exhibit at Katz Jewish Community Center in Cherry Hill, NJ, each day when I go to my yoga class. It's a constant reminder of the atrocities that Jewish people endured during World War II. I shudder every time I look at the pictures on display.

"I've never eaten so much at a food show," said my friend J as we exited the Summer Fancy Food Show held at the Javits Center in New York City last week. "Me either," I replied, after five hours of walking through what seemed like hundreds of booths filled with all kinds of foods.
