Monday September 16, 2019 08:51 PM He wants people to know what he found out some 20 years ago but only now is making public: He was diagnosed with high cholesterol. Written by Howard Cohen For entertainer Jay Leno, getting serious about his health began with a joke. For a guy who turned his stand-up comic act into a lucrative gig hosting “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” for more than 21 years, it's always a joke — isn't it? Even if Leno insists in a telephone interview that the adage that says “Laughter is the best medicine” is ultimately a bunch of hooey in matters of health. The high cholesterol he found out he had, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) — the bad cholesterol that can lead to heart disease — is the leading cause of death in the United States, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Laughter the best medicine?” Leno said. “No! It's a terrible medicine. It doesn't do anything at all. A guy … [Read more...] about Jay Leno is dead serious about his new health campaign

QUESTION: I am a 68-year-old happily married man. When I was growing up it was always considered a sign of a gentleman to compliment a lady when it was appropriate. I do that now and I am reprimanded by my daughter who said that that is not a proper thing for me to do. I do realize that there is a shift in our culture that makes these things seem a little creepy however, I still think it is nice to be nice. Is there a way to give a compliment in this day and age? CALLIE’S ANSWER: Every woman likes to be complimented. That being said, a light compliment “you look very nice tonight” should be said once. Complimenting a second time is for a significant other to do. LILLIE-BETH’S ANSWER: A sincere compliment can be welcome, and it sounds like you are genuinely trying to make the world a better place. But if your daughter is suggesting that you back off, ask her to help you understand why. Are you only complimenting a person’s looks? Are you doing it too often? … [Read more...] about 20-40-60 etiquette: Should man keep giving compliments?
