Dear Heloise: To save time looking up doctors' phone numbers, I took one of the pages under "D" in my address/phone book and wrote "Doctors" at the top and listed them all on that one page, instead of under their names.
It works so well that I made a page under "H" that I called "House" and listed the plumber, electrician, yard service, etc., on that page.
I started this when I had a new doctor with a difficult name that I could not remember. Sara Lemon, Baton Rouge, La.
SEND A GREAT HINT TO:

Dear Readers: Here are some handy uses for duct tape:
• Keep in the car trunk's emergency kit for quick repairs.
• Use to remove splinters and cactus thorns.
• Use to temporarily hem a pair of pants.
• Use to make handles on brooms, mops, etc., last longer.
• Use to remove lint and pet hair from furniture and clothing. Heloise
Dear Heloise: I read your column in The Arizona Republic and think the greatest use of address labels was missed.
While working for the National Park Service, I was amazed by the amount of cameras (especially one-time use) and cell phones that were turned in daily, with no way to know who they belonged to.If the item had a return-address label, we returned it. We have thousands of those labels why not use some? Dan Merritt, Peoria, Ariz.
