My dog suffers from seizures. Although he is Cocker Spaniel and Poodle mixed, he only suffers from seizures every 3 or 4 months. A pet store owner said that some dog foods causes seizure activity in some dogs. I buy my dog Ol Roy dry dog food. Is this causing the seizures in my dog?

Could be. You do know about the recall of this dog food in the US and Canada lately? It has been linked to kidney failure and possibly some other side effects. The web site for the recall can be found on abc.com or most any of your news websites. I got lucky and my brand was not listed.

I have a 1997 Chev Sivlerrado with vortec V-6 engine, it had been back firing then quit running. I have replaced the timing chain and gear, along with new distributor module and it still won't start, what could it be?

Question found in Auto Diagnostics
Were you able to disconnect the fuse to the automatic timing?, (I don't remember actually what it is called), but some of these trucks can't be set with your timing light correctly unless this module is inactive at the time. These trucks also eat fuel filters and will pretty much need the rotor button, plugs and wires changed.....sometimes the coil, (if that's still what they call it now), will make a mess of things after such a replacement of parts in which you described.

I have a drgstar 650 the exhaust bolt has snapped into the head on dismantling. I can see the previous owner has had this problem before and not done a very good repair so I want it welding so I can drill and tap it back to normal. Is the head alloy and can I weld it with a mig or does it need tig welding? I have done a bit of welding on cars and have a mig welder but never done any alloy welding before, if anyone can help?

I am not a very good welder but I have seen this before. My remedy was to use a liquid weld, (high resistance to temperature), then drill and tap. I did this on three locations on the same type engine, (liquid cooled), and had no trouble with it whatsoever. I am pretty sure the head is an alloy but to be safe, your best bet may be to contact the manufacturer if you are going to weld. "JB Weld" was the name of the product I used but I don't remember the temperature rating. I hope this helps and good luck.

My wife died in January after a very long illness. She wrote me a letter in which she said that one day we would be reunited in heaven and have the marriage that we could not have when she was alive. She then told me to get on with my life. Now I am in a quandary, I want to be reunited with her when I die but do not want to spend the rest of my life alone until then as I am only 46 years old. This is testing my faith and I do not know what to do. If I have another relationship now what happens when I get to heaven and have 2 wives. I know this sounds strange but it is a genuine question, can anyone help? What takes precedence my remaining time on earth or in heaven?

I am truly sorry for your loss. Please remember that grieving is a process we all must learn, even when we've done it many times before. It will take time and then you will look back and see what you have experienced. I have to agree with most of the other replies since there many people of faith on this site that are very good with answers to questions similar to yours. I can only add that in my understanding, (which doesn't mean I am correct), when we get to heaven we may not know everyone as we know them here in life. In a way, it is sad to think of it like this as mortals, but this God's plan in healing and not ours.

On another note, don't let anyone discourage you in honoring your wife's wishes in accordance with your faith. She's truly an angel. There are people who work so hard to dismiss God in their lives that they don't realize they are only verifying that He actually does exist. How can anyone who doesn't believe in God, spend so much time and energy fighting something they believe is not there? Good luck to you and your bright future as I pray that it will get better for you and your family in this time of great loss.

Does money buy happiness?

Discuss this question

Question found in People & Relationships In General
No, only makes things easier sometimes. More money means more responsibility and some power. You see many examples of how both are abused to obscene levels. I think that if a person who is realistic about their own needs and the needs of others, basic human necessities, then anything beyond providing well for their families should be seriously considered to possibly be used to end the suffering of the least among us. 30 bucks can make a difference in the lives of the family of a fallen soldier or police officer, for example.

My girl friend and I have been dating each other for over a year now...

We have professed to love each other countless number of times during this one year period.

But through out the relationship she has been constantly and incessantly been attracted to other men, and she even flirts with them, and has also confessed that she has sexual thoughts about them. I have told her on several different occasions that this behavior of hers is extremely irritating, while she tells me she'd change. And even after several instances I've found her repeating the same and even confessing the same. At one point, I even broke up and told her to leave. Only this time she begs, cries and pleads she'd change and asks me to take her back. Obviously I crumble to this cause she is the one I love and I take her back. Even now she repeats the same behavior.

Moreover, she still loves one of her male childhood friend’s, whom she’s never had a romantic relationship with except for friendship. She professes to love him. Even though she claims that he is not the logical match for her. More than love, I believe it was reasons of security that she wanted to be with me and she confesses to me, a major chunk of the reasons she wants to be with me is for her security.

Our relationship is on the threshold of a break up and I am preparing myself for it...

I want to know if this behavior of hers is normal and common to all women, especially to the ones they claim to love? If so why? Is it expected? What do you think should be my obvious course of action as I can’t stand this behaviour? I would be grateful to any insight you could offer on the matter.

Ps: Her father is an alcoholic, a verbally abusive one and was since one her childhood. She's also had plenty of traumatic childhood experiences...

With this in mind, does it change your perspective to the initially asked questions? Does she need help? What should I do? Should I break up with her, knowing that the ultimate decision is mine? Or Should I still support and back her up?

The girl seems to have an extreme comfort zone when talking to you since she can tell you these things pretty openly. Only you know how this will play out when you are getting this serious, but in my opinion, it is a risk with her and others who are very similar.

The openness of your communications with her may be best utilized as friends only. The "security" word has me puzzled. If it is financial security, I can understand, but, if there seems to be a need for physical security, then this is disturbing, and you should be wary. Emotional security is a given with all serious relationships but only within the correct circumstances. Everyone needs someone to lean on when they are vulnerable and even then, they do not realize they have the power to control it most of the time on their own. It just helps to have many more people to rely on for lots of reasons, some good, and some very bad.

If you find yourself with insecurity within yourself, there is usually a perfectly good reason behind it. You know it and she knows it, and she sees it every time you let your guard down. It is even more confusing when those reasons are so obvious that they cause you to have to rely on an unsecure person for your emotional security when you need it. This mixture does not work well and it seems as if you are being sold an idea that you can either accept or reject it but it isn't like buying a car, it is a person who has baggage and it will certainly become yours if you continue too long on this emotional plane.

Yes, there are many like this. Many of them turn out to be fine people but unfortunately some people become stepping stones for them to inadvertently validate their unwanted behavior. This affects a lot of innocent people. When you love a person who says they love you, but then tells you that they also love someone else, you are in turn only validating this behavior and allowing her to use you.

It is a painful thing to see a needy person pleading for you not to leave but you are helping her overcome this behavior that is not your place to fix. She has to do it on her own in order to overcome the psychological problems that will only get worse for her, unless people like you, who truly care, can tell her no.

Career dilemma- right, 6 months ago I left a job that I had been doing for the past three years, for the same job but with another company. The new job pays a lot better and is only ten minutes from home. I had no problems with my last job at all, I loved the people and the place and everything. The only reason I really left was for money and because of how close it is to my home. Also, I couldn't see a career in it for me, as the manager there had been there for ever and showed no sign of ever leaving- leaving no where for me to move up to, anyway, I have received a call from my old company telling me that my x boss is leaving and that they have a proposition for me, which involves some sort of senior position, but not manager. Kind of assistant manager. They think very highly of me and want me back. Money would be the same, if not a bit more.

I don't know what to do. I like both company's just as much. however, I enjoy the company of my old colleagues more, and I'm working longer hours at my new job, but it will be take me 30 mins to get to work as opposed to 10. I don't want to feel like I've let my new company down, but I also don't want to miss a good career opportunity. If anyone can offer any kind of advice, I would be most grateful. Am I best to stick it out here, or go back to my roots?

If you want to go back to your old job, think about where you want to be in 5 years. If in 5 years you will be in the same rut as you were when you left, maybe asking for more, much more money than they are offering you. Otherwise, you may be better off with your current situation. Sometimes it's not about the money but happiness. If you will be happy in the new position offered and money doesn't necessarily apply, then make the change back to what sounds to be your comfort zone, home. Good luck.

"Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" keeps popping up and closing Internet. How do I get rid of this?

Discuss this question

Question found in Internet In General
Make sure you have done your full virus scan and if this doesnt help, try downloading and installing the latest version of IE from microsoft.com or windows.com. You can also get mozilla firefox from download.com to do your surfing and you may even like it better than IE because of it's security features and ease of use.

I have a 2000 ford windstar that is smoking from the tail pipe. What could it be and should I be worried?

Discuss this question

Question found in Auto Diagnostics
Usually a little blue smoke on start up is acceptable. If it is steady blue coming out of the pipe, this is oil getting inside the compression chamber between the piston and the head. If it is black smoke, the fuel mixture is wrong and probably burning too rich. The carburetor or some sensors can take care of this problem. The blue smoke usually indicates major engine wear and will eventually need to be looked at and repaired by a mechanic.

Our 2yr old dog is suddenly afraid to go outside. She acts like something is out there. It all started when one of our cats went missing. What can we do?

Discuss this question

Question found in Dogs In General
It is possible that there is an enemy outside. Another animal, probably, that the dog can smell when near the door. Could be a raccoon, gator, coyote, fox, big cat, or possum, depending where you live, of course, and with the warm temperatures lately, snakes aren't out of the question. If your dog isn't familiar with the scent of a predatory or dominant wild animal, when it finally leaves the area she will become much better. Check with your neighbors, if any nearby, and see if there has been such strange changes or sightings in the area and this may give you a clue.
