Dear People Connection: Town Square: Twin Cities,

My next-door neighbors are driving me nuts! Whenever they're bored, they drop by my place unannounced without so much as calling! My privacy is very important to me. How can I make it clear to them that these unexpected visits are totally unwelcome?

Dear People Connection: Town Square: Twin Cities,

My best friend Amy has the hots for my boyfriend Craig. It's so shameless the way she flirts with him. It's gotten to the point where I'm uncomfortable when the two of them are in the same room together. Craig says I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but I just don't like it at all. Am I being petty and jealous, or should I tell Amy to knock it off and get her own man?

Dear People Connection: Town Square: Twin Cities,

What's a normal amount of TV to watch in a day? My daughter says my son-in-law has the boob tube on from the minute he's home from work until he goes to bed. And that's not even counting weekends! Does he have some kind of problem?
