 Dear Savvy Senior
Can you provide some tipsthat can help me find out howmy elderly parents are doingnancially and what plans, f any, they’ve made for long- erm care? I don’t want to prynto their affairs or offendhem, but I do want to knowhat’s going on so when some-hing happens to one of them,I can be prepared.
 In The Dark
Dear In,
Most adult children don’tnow much about their par-nts’ financial situation,whether they have enoughmoney to live on, or to pay forthe care they may need someday. And most families havenot had discussions abouttheir end of life issues, andwhat preparations they havemade. But they need to!
Important Talk
Discussing financial, legaland long-term care decisionswith older parents can be dif-ficult and awkward, especiallyif you’ve never done it before.Many seniors consider finan-cial matters to be private andhave no interest in discussingthem, even with their kids.To help with this the MetLifeMature Market Institute of-fers 10 tips for making moneytalks with parents a little eas-ier, starting with:1. Don’t put it off: It’s bestto initiate the conversationwhile your parents are still ingood health.2. Team up: Involve yoursiblings and other fam-ily members in the discus-sion with your parents. Thiscan help you head off possiblehard feelings. Plus, with fam-ily members involved, yourfolks will know everyone isconcerned, not just you.3. Explain your intentions:Let your parents know thatyou are starting this discus-sion because you’re concernedand you want to make sureyou do the right things as theyage.4. Don’t take over: Your par-ents still have the need andright to make their own de-cisions. Try not to take thatsense of control away fromthem.5. Agree to disagree: Youand your parents may dis-agree with each other on whatthey may need, but don’t forceyour opinion on them. Unlesstheir health or safety is on theline, respect their decisions.6. Communicate clearly:Try to avoid offering advice.Instead, focus on presentingthem with options. Includethem in the discussion by ask-ing for their ideas. Instead of telling them what to do, try toexpress your concerns.7. Ask about importantdocuments: Know where yourparents’ insurance policies,

 Dear Neil
: I have weedsthat grow between my wood ence and a chain link fence.They have some kind of littleixie flowers on them. I getid of the plants, but they keepcoming back. What could I use that would be better?
It sounds like they arebroadleafed weeds (that’sthe category of weeds thatare not grasses). You coulduse a broadleafed weedkillercontaining 2,4-d. It will be aspray that you would care-fully apply with a pumpsprayer. Put it on throughthe chain link fence, and ap-ply it specifically to the foli-age of the weeds. It needsto be warm (approaching70 degrees F), and it shouldnot rain for 48 hours af-ter you spray. It will take aweek or two, but it will killthe weeds. If you can breakthe cycle early enough in theseason that this year’s weedscan’t go to seed, you shouldbe able to eliminate them.For the record, once you usea sprayer for any type of weedkiller, you should neveruse it to apply insecticides orfungicides. It’s too difficult torinse out the residues. Markit specifically for weedkilleruse.
 Dear Neil
: Why is my liveoak losing its leaves so early? Normally that doesn’t hap- pen until late winter.
Of course, it could be dueto something exotic, but farand away the most commoncause this year has been left-over effects of all the rains inlate spring and early sum-mer. We had widespread im-pact from fungal leaf diseas-es. Hollies, oaks and manyof our other stalwart plantssuffered. Things should befine come spring.
 Dear Neil
: You mentioned peonies in a recent column. I have noticed, while visit-ing relatives at the time theywere blooming, that they are fragrant in Iowa and not inWashington. Is that unusu-al?
It probably has a lot moreto do with the varieties thatwere being grown or wherein their flowering cycle theywere when you saw them.Fragrance of almost anygroup of flowers will varyfrom variety to variety. Ros-es are the classic example. You can smell some varietiesas soon as you enter the gar-den. Others require muchcloser olfactory inspection. Also, fragrant flowers willhave their best aromas earlyin the lives of the individu-al flowers and early in themorning as well.
 Dear Neil
: We are tryingto eliminate a row of old- fashioned nandinas thatare growing too close to ourhouse. We tried pulling themup, and we have applied Round-Up, diesel oil and 2, 4-d. Nothing has killed themout completely, and they’re sothick we can’t get a rototillerinto them. What can we do?
Pretty good testimonialas to why nandinas are sopopular where we do wantthem. The best method isone that you mentioned,and that would be the samebroadleafed weedkiller 2, 4-d that we mentioned earlier,applied as a foliar spray toactive new growth in mid-spring. Wait until May, thenspray at the recommendedrate. You’ll still have thosemassive roots to contendwith, but at least you’ll havekilled the top growth. Youmight try a really heavy-duty rototiller. Beware of any utility lines that mightrun into your house throughtheir bed.
 Dear Neil
: I have a largeoak tree that is close to mydrive. One of the tree’s rootshas lifted the drive by about5 inches. Can I safely removethat root in order to replacethat elevated portion of mydrive?
 Absolutely. The tree willrecover, assuming it suffersat all. While you have thedriveway torn up you mightcheck for any other smallerroots that may be waitingtheir turn to do your driveharm. Cut a trench along theside of the drive and installsome type of root barrier tokeep additional roots fromcausing a problem. You couldalso install interlocking con-crete pavers that would al-low you easier access to thesoil without breaking solidpieces of concrete.
 Dear Neil:
 I have newblackberry plants that have grown very well. They were planted last winter. Shouldthey be pruned now?
Oh, no! Blackberries pro-duce fruit on canes that wereproduced the preceding year.Once they bear fruit, how-ever, those canes will neverbear again. That makesearly June the best time tocut the canes that have justborne fruit back completelyto the ground. “Tip-prune”the new canes this spring tokeep them shorter and morecompact.

The first thing women should remind themselves about heart disease is thatit is the leading cause of death in women. Just as importantly, women shouldheed the landmark Women’s Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation (WISE), whichsuggests that many women have a form of heart disease called “coronarymicrovascular dysfunction.” This finding helps explain why heart diseasein women is not detected by standard diagnostic procedures and, thus,goes unrecognized and untreated. While standard protocol identifies onlycoronary-artery obstruction, many women suffer from improper dilation of smaller blood vessels that feed the heart muscle but cannot accommodateincreased blood flow. This is one reason why so few women have the classiccrushing chest pain that signals coronary artery disease.At

LACTOSE INTOLERANCE
 
When a child is lactose intolerant,he or she will usually end up withstomach cramps, gas, and diarrheawithin 30 minutes of eating a milkproduct. In lactose intolerant people,the body does not adequately di-gest the main sugar (lactose) in milkand milk products. It can be man-aged with diet modifications and/orsome food supplements. If you sus-pect your child is lactose intolerant,schedule an appointment with yourpediatrician. He or she can run asimple breath test, as well as rule outany other health conditions that couldbe causing the problems. If your childis lactose intolerant, make sure he orshe gets enough calcium from othernon-dairy sources.
