March is when leprechauns leap, fiddlers play a high old tune, and kites get all up in the air. A pot of gold is there to be found at the end of the rainbow. But everybody loses something, too. With the start of daylight saving time -- a lost hour. Poor little lost hour, it had plans for the day.

DEAR CAROLYN: My wife's parents, in their mid-80s, returned to the United States three weeks ago after working and living in Europe, and are staying with us until their household goods arrive.

She has also avoided getting involved in ongoing efforts aimed at getting the parents oriented medically (visits are averaging at least one every other day) or assisting in the inevitable housing decision.

Critical Mass: Oscars more about glitzy show itself than films

posted: 02/22/2015 2:16 a.m. Discuss

Tonight people in Hollywood will give each other trophies and make speeches expressing their gratitude to the many people who helped them achieve whatever the statuette they hold in their hands symbolizes. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' annual awards presentation is one of the few communal experiences left to us, one of the rituals of obligation that knits this large and diverse nation together.
