You’ve worked hard building your career, raising your children and accumulating assets. Now, you’re entering into a second marriage…Should a prenuptial agreement be part of the equation to protect these important parts of your life?
Frankly, I don't understand how this thing got produced. The film spans the final two years in the short but memorable life of screen legend Errol Flynn.

He played against the greats of the game. He is one of the greats of the game. Last month, it was all confirmed in Canton. Aeneas Williams was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It surprised no one. When you go to eight Pro Bowls, make the 1990s All-Decade team, and intercept 55 passes and score nine touchdowns, you are worthy.

On a cold January night in 1997, Ellie Zografakis did not watch her favorite TV show—and that’s when the story of the Nutriformance began. That night away from the tube would lead Ellie to Dale Huff, her future husband and business partner.

We started meeting, and I found out Dale and I had some of the same goals.”

Sending a child away to college is one of the most exciting—and nerve-racking—times in families’ lives. Will they succeed academically? Will they get along with their roommate? Will they be able to live on their own? These are just some of the questions each parent faces as their child enters adulthood. Dr. Sherrie Campbell, a veteran psychologist based in southern California and author of Loving Yourself : The Mastery of Being Your Own Person, says the best way to transition your teen into the next chapter is to instill them with confidence and discipline. LN recently spoke with Campbell, whose specialties include psychotherapy with adults and teenagers, more about how parents can prepare their kids for the privileges and challenges of college life.

Most parents of toddlers are familiar with the tiny face of disgust peering back at them above a plate of peas—or bananas, green beans, the list goes on—shaking from side to side: No way. Wanting to teach children about nutrition in a fun and inviting way, a group of local parents have teamed up to create Kitchen Club Kids, a series of three award-winning ‘recipe adventure story books,’ for ages 2 to 6. Each book, End of the Rainbow Fruit Salad, Garden Safari Vegetable Soup, and Feed Your Senses Homemade Bread (due out later this year), includes a recipe told in traditional storybook format, as well as the real recipe the story is based on at the end of the book, so that parents and children can work together in the kitchen to prepare nutritious meals. Eluka Moore, Kitchen Club Kids co-creator and author, and soon-to-be mom of two, shared the genesis story of the books, as well as tips for parents on teaching their kids about nutrition and trying new foods—even, perhaps, peas.
As an interior designer, each night as I fall asleep I pray that “people with money will wake up with good taste, and people with good taste will wake up with money.” I do jest, but there is something to be said about the Victorian era, when people’s fortunes seemed to demand that they build some sort of monument to their wealth—and no expense was spared to ensure that it was detailed with the finest of the fine, from the cellar to the attic. That time period reflected a real respect and appreciation for those who were experts in fine carpentry, hand-painted finishes, custom furniture and passamenteri, that in many ways, has been lost today, not because people don’t care, but because our desire as a nation to have instant gratification overrules the joy of the journey to beauty.

From the time Dr. Denise Hooks-Anderson was a little girl, becoming a physician was all she ever wanted to do. “I was a doctor for all of my dolls, and I would watch different doctor shows like Marcus Welby, M. D.,” she recalls. “I always kept that dream and desire, and just went full speed ahead after it.” The Arkansas native, who came to St. Louis in 2000, also was inspired by her childhood doctor. “He was truly the old-fashioned type, and I wanted to emulate him. I didn’t have any female physician role models, but it didn’t matter to me. That’s just what I wanted to do.”

DeSmet elected to pitch to Scott Cooper, who had homered earlier in the game. Bad idea. Cooper hit the ball 400 feet on the track by the football field. Pattonville won 3-2.
Whether you have an infant, toddler or teen, most mothers—at some time—consider a return to the working world. This decision, however, often is accompanied by contradictory feelings.

Let me start off by saying I think Clint Eastwood is one of the greatest directors working today. He has an almost magical ability to capture the heart of a story, to let the audience connect with the human element. That makes it all the more difficult to understand what went wrong here.
