By Rick Steves

Tribune Content Agency

In Paris last June, I kept running into a delightful woman from Indiana on her first trip there. Wonderstruck by the city's charms, she was doing everything right - picking up French words, conversing with every local she could, and enjoying the great artistic and cultural experiences.

Interpersonal Edge: Practice making the world you want at work

 By Dr. Daneen Skube

Tribune Content Agency
 
Q: The older I get the less I like people. Integrity is missing and kindness is rare. Other than staying home with my dog, how do you look forward to a workplace where a whole lot of people simply suck? I'm not saying some people are not wonderful, but they seem to be the exception.

MY PET WORLD: Cats can be distracted and redirected toward better behavior too

 

By Cathy M. Rosenthal
Tribune Content Agency
 
Dear Cathy,
 
  I have a four-year-old American short-hair female cat. I got her at 8 weeks old from a friend. The problem is, she scratches my upholstered furniture and rugs. She only does it when I am in the room. I have tried sprays, tape and correcting with a spritz of water. I have various scratching posts, which she is not interested in, even when I put catnip on them. Putting towels over things helps a bit, but she usually finds a way around them. Any other ideas? - Carol, via email
 
  Dear Carol,

Excuse me. Are you listening? The Unintentional or Intentional Eavesdropper?

Dear Readers, 

 
It used to always feel wonderful when someone would ask me to meet at a coffee shop for a business meeting.   More recently, I am finding that it is better to stay in an office setting depending on the type of conversation that you are going to have.  Watching the steam rise from your cup of black coffee with a double shot of expresso, while waiting for your coffee mate to arrive can sometimes turn you into a chatterbox.
