I still expect to hear
a bell ring when I pull up to the gas
pumps. Course there is little
reason to announce your presence these
days since there is no one rushin
out ta wash your windshield.
I do find myself
tryin to avoid passin by the
pumps when Im just stoppin
for a coke. I feel a little silly when I
realize Im tryin to avoid
ringin the non existent bell.
I suppose anyone under
the age of 18 doesnt have any idea
what Im talkin about. Talk to
your parents, they should be the ones to
explain such things.
Id think some
marketin savvy chain of convenience
stores would put the bell back. It would
make your customers feel important to
know they are bein announced.
This is some fact, but

YOUR GOOD HEALTH
By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a woman
in my late 50s with a humiliating condition
hair growth on my chin and above my upper
lip. I asked my doctor what I could do about it,
and he told me to shave. I left his office in
tears. I dont want to shave. I know that
promotes hair growth. Please help. R.Z.
ANSWER: Let me kill the
shaving-causes-hair-growth idea quickly. Even
though thats an often-repeated statement,
it is not true. Some women experience facial-hair
growth as they get older merely as a genetic
trait. Perhaps you can recall if your mother had
the same problem. How about sisters?
Regardless of inheritance, as
an aftermath of menopause, there is a change in a
womans female-to-male hormone balance.
(Women do make male hormones.) The male hormone
production slightly increases, and the female
hormone production plummets. Hair begins to grow
in places where it grows on men above the
upper lip, the chin, the cheeks and between the
The solution to your problem is
to resort to methods that attack hair follicles,
such as electrolysis or chemical hair removers.
Vaniqa is a prescription cream that retards hair
growth. Spironolactone, flutamide and finasteride
are oral prescription drugs that block male
hormone action on hair follicles.
