when used properly can significantly reduce the risk of contracting most sexually transmitted diseases but they are not 100 percent effective Even though there are exciting new developments in AIDS

letter should serve as a wakeup call Dear Catherine I offer my Dear Abby Will you please publish this letter Its about my wife She talks too much My job requires me to bring work home Our house needs a lot of attention too When I try to work my wife is always there with a steady stream of questions or trivial conversation When I sit down to read I read in minuteandihalf blocks of time because I know she will interrupt me Hven when she isnt in the room I can hear her talking yelling or complaining in a tone that cant be ignored 1 suppose I should feel grateful that she wants o talk to me But Abby the truth is I need my peace and quiet I have tried to discuss this with her but it only upsets her When talk she usually interrupts Whats ironic K thai a woman she works with has he same habit and my wife complains about her This may seem funny but my job is slipping and our hoiiM looks like heck No Peace in San Diego NO Peace It doesnt sound fnniy to me Your wife is a compulsive talker
