Dear Lucy: I have a dog that I love dearly and have had her for 10 years. I am a widow and she is my constant companion. When I go out and have to leave early because of her, I am not upset but others seem to get upset! Some friends accuse me of treating her like she is a person or letting her dictate my schedule. I resent this. I do not think of my dog as a person. She is a dog and I well know that. Why is it that when you are a certain age, live alone and have a pet people like to label you "pet lover" in a mocking way?

Recently, I was fortunate to serve as legal counsel for a movie called "N-Secure" that was filmed in Memphis. Daily on the set, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks were provided to the crew courtesy of Felecia Bean Catering. And it was wonderful!
Omelets prepared on demand, fresh seasoned fruit – the choices were incredible. As a full-service caterer, Bean can do it all.

A recent study using data from 136 countries suggests that spending money for the benefit of others promotes a feeling of happiness in the giver. This may not be surprising to the many people who donate to charity. Almost three-fourths of charitable giving in the United States comes from individuals.
Charitable contributions could also help ease your tax burden; therefore, it's important to keep appropriate records and follow IRS guidelines.
