SAFETY SAFETY SAFETY A terrible, tragic story out of Louisiana shows just how dangerous candles can be:
A candle lighted by a family spending its first night in a Marrero townhouse ignited a fire early Thursday that killed 11 people, including eight children, in what authorities believe is one of the deadliest residential fires in Louisiana history.
Always have a safety plan when dealing with candles. Always keep candles away from flammable items. Always blow out candles before leaving a room.

ASK AMY GETS SASSY From a recent column:
Dear Amy: I was asked to address my own thank-you envelope when I was at a bridal shower recently. I did not fill one out because I do not agree with it. I guess I will not get a "thank-you" for the gift I gave. Am I being too touchy about this? I thought it was tacky. Is this a new trend for showers? - Perplexed on Protocol

Dear Perplexed: Why didn't the prospective bride just have you write the note too? Then she could be assured that it was lovely and heartfelt and arrived in a timely fashion. I know what the shower host is thinking here--she thoughtfully wants to get everything right, but part of the beauty of getting things right is the quiet, behind-the-scenes effort it takes to get there. I have heard of this practice, but am not sure if it's a trend.
