A new study shows that teenage girls who are active in sports are less likely to die prematurely from cancer or other causes as they get older. That's great news—especially for a family like mine with a strong disposition toward cancer.

It's a common scenario: It's after-hours or a weekend and you need to see your doctor. But the office is closed.
Or it's flu season and you can't get an appointment to see your doctor for two weeks.
Maybe you're out of town and don't have access to your regular physician. Or you don't have your own physician.
It's not exactly an emergency—your throat is scratchy and sore—but you don't want to wait to see your doctor.

Each summer for the past nine years, I either hop on a plane or train and travel into the blogosphere to attend the BlogHer Conference. It's an enlightening experience being around so many brilliant and inspiring women.

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.
