Otus the Head Cat: Heartless scientists mutilate noble cockroach

posted: 05/27/2017 1:47 a.m. Discuss

Dear Otus, We've spent a small fortune this spring on roach traps trying to rid our house of the vermin. Talk about a better mouse trap, why has nobody invented a better roach trap?

Car Talk

posted: 05/27/2017 1:45 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAR TALK: I own a beautiful 1985 Mercedes 280SL. At my last hose changeover, I was informed that there were only 43 of the "molded" radiator hoses available, nationwide. The other hoses could be replaced off the shelf. My question is: Does it make sense to buy several of these hoses now, place them in zip bags and put them inside some sort of airtight plastic containers to prevent deterioration? Will they be useful in eight years, at the next changeover? If not, do you have any suggestions as to how to deal with this problem? I don't want to have to sell my beloved Benz to a collector.

Often overshadowed, fencing adds to appeal

Fencing has long been an underrated part of a property. New homeowners are usually busy adding decor and greenery to customize their homes and take the perimeter partition for granted.

5 do-it-yourself skills make adult life easier

posted: 05/27/2017 1:44 a.m. Discuss

Part of being an adult is creating a well-functioning place to call home. If you want to add a personal touch, like artwork on the walls, you need to hang it. If something breaks, you have to be able to fix it -- or hire someone to do it, which burns through cash fast. Luckily, the more tasks you take on, the more you learn, until someday you're the one who everyone else turns to for advice.

Consider seasons when planting your garden

posted: 05/27/2017 1:43 a.m. Discuss

Though I adore spring gardens, it’s wonderful that many gardeners have moved past the idea of putting all their time, space and money into a single season. I suppose it was only natural to start with, since spring-flowering trees, shrubs and perennials grow so beautifully.

Happy birthday. You do and say your truth this year and grow in power because of this. August features the excitement of new business and big money. Note that loved ones don't have to be your whole life in order to make your life whole.

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: By the time you get this I'll be about to graduate from college. How can I decide what to do next? I actually have two job offers, but how can I know which is the right one? Maybe they're both wrong. I'm really scared I'll make a mistake.

Style: Setting up a first apartment

posted: 05/26/2017 11:46 a.m. Discuss

Chances are you’ll spend more waking hours in your first cubicle than your first post-college apartment. But as any 9-to-5er knows, the last thing you’ll want to come home to is another cookie-cutter space.

Review: Captain Cursed

posted: 05/26/2017 1:52 a.m. Discuss

For a series entirely predicated on ancient nautical curses, it's ironic that its star, Johnny Depp, has long been afflicted with one of his own: The Curse of the Giant Franchise Movie Series. In his fifth (or is it sixth?) reprise as Captain Jack Sparrow, it's pretty clear this is a marriage of extreme financial convenience and little else.

Review: Baywatch

posted: 05/26/2017 1:51 a.m. Discuss

Imagine you're minding your own business, sitting at a bar somewhere, drinking a decent domestic, noshing on their complimentary bowl of sesame sticks contemplatively, and this dude suddenly comes up to you with a big grin on his face, like the hilarity is about to explode out of him. "I've got a joke for you," he says, sitting on the stool next to you and annoyingly pushing your beer to one side. "But it's totally, totally stupid." You tell him that's OK, that sometimes dumb jokes told properly can still be pretty funny. He leans in, you can smell his breath, which is as if his tongue was coated in bubonic plague. "OK," he continues, "I'm telling you, it's super dumb, cuz I'm a super-dumb guy and I love dumb jokes like this."

There was a moment in the late 1970s when we went to discos.

Resilient Alien beats Guardians

posted: 05/26/2017 1:48 a.m. Discuss

After almost 40 years, audiences are still interested in the Alien universe. Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, from 20th Century Fox, dethroned Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which had topped the box office for two straight weeks. Meanwhile, Warner Bros.' Everything, Everything and Fox's Diary of a Wimpy Kid sequel battled for those not interested in R-rated scares.
