HOME CLOSING COSTS: Do you know your rights?

When you buy a home, the money you must shell out for closing costs can come as a real shock.

When should you have your eyes examined?

The answer may sound obvious, but according to eye specialists the time to have your eyes examined is just as soon as you realize you're not seeing as well as you used to or not seeing as clearly as you think you should. The hitch is that only a very few people really know how well their eyes are working.

Here's how to go about it.

Family Sailing

Every year more and more greenhorn sailors hoist sails and cast off to explore the mysteries of the sea. Most of them soon discover, however, that sailing isn't all "beauty" and "poetry."

Kayaking

Any river with enough water to float a kayak has "yak" potential. (That's not to rule out paddling your yak in a lake or an ocean.)
