•Avon roll-on antiperspirants have saved my life. I have never done this before, but I felt the need to share this information with as many people as I can.


Reader rant

I would really, really appreciate it if someone would get the attention of clothing designers and suggest that they return the waists of slacks, shorts and pants in general to the waists of our bodies. I am not a large person, but I do have a "bump" below my waist that is only emphasized by belting it on the "below the waistline" styles that seem to be the norm now for too many years. Take a chance and design just one line that we can wear with comfort again. We've got money to spend, and you've got money to earn. Get with it!

Thanks for listening.
