Albert Einstein once said that there are two ways to look at life - as though nothing is a miracle, or as though everything is a miracle. I, myself, prefer the latter. I believe we are surrounded by miracles every day, and that God is still performing miracles every day. I've found if you si…
Dear Doctor: I own a 2012 Camry. When the sun is bright, the radio/navigation screen is impossible to read until I get in shadier spot. It seems the flat screen should be indented into a cabinet or it should have protruding sides to help block light. What can I do? The auto body shop said th…

Q: I thought it would be a cool idea to upgrade my tail, stop and turn lights with LED replacements so they'd be brighter. The first set of LED bulbs I tried didn't get bright enough when the brakes were pressed so I returned them. The second set is OK except the ones for my turn signals fla…

Dear Doctor: My father owns a 2009 Lincoln MKS with 48,000 miles. After 1.5 hours of driving with the outside temperature of 66 degrees with no a/c or heat on, I noticed fogging on the windshield (not heavy). It also happens in winter when the heat is turned on. Could this be a small problem…

Anyone who knows me will tell you I shy away from pickup trucks. And yes, I know I'm supposed to be an impartial journalist, capable of suspending my personal tastes and giving every vehicle a fair shake. Still, to say I was looking forward to the 2019 GMC Canyon Crew Cab Denali would be a stretch.
American society isn't one that seems to promote sacrifice. Around practically every turn you see the opposite of sacrifice, selfishness, being boasted. I'm not talking about our God-given rights, but about the fact that our culture (and sadly many churches) are inward focused and not outwar…
