Question 1:
Kathleen E. emailed: Do you know how to safely dispose of prescription and over-the-counter drugs?

Thanks Kathleen, great question. Drug Take-Back programs are your best option. Call your city or county government to see what's available.
Question 2:
Norind S. asked: When is the best time to travel to Europe?

Thank you for your question Norind. You'll want to travel in the winter for the best prices, but know that some attractions are closed at that time or have very limited hours.

I would shoulder going in April or May. Traveling right now is much cheaper than in the summer and there are more things to see and do.

I have traveled quite a bit and can tell you, Europe in the fall is my favorite.

Question 3:
Mark from San Leandro asked: I recently moved and continue to get magazines even though I cancelled them online. I'm still getting billed as well. How do I take care of it?

Hi Mark. I know it's not as convenient as a couple clicks on-line, but call customer service at each magazine's publisher and tell them to stop sending you to mags and the bills. You can find the numbers on the publishers' websites. Some include the number on the first few pages of the magazine.

You can also go to a website called Trim. It's a free service that scans your credit card bills for subscriptions you don't want, then contacts the companies and tells them to stop.
