DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 58 and have been diagnosed with granuloma annulare, which I've had for more than a year and a half. I have both rings (that start small, like a cigarette burn, and then get larger) and spots, which look like birthmarks. I tried changing my diet, but it didn't have any effect. I can't wear shorts, because they are unsightly. I am told that there is no remedy for this. I have been using a topical cream, clobetasol, which doesn't seem to help. My research tells me that it usually goes away after two years, but I also have seen several cases where it never goes away.
Dear Heloise: I saw pink salt in the store the other day. What is it, and how is it used? -- Lydia N., via email The pink salt you are seeing in stores is Himalayan salt, which is found deep within the Himalayas. The beautiful pink color comes from the mineral content. You can buy the salt in plates, slabs, cubes and fine or coarse grain. Use the fine- or coarse-grained salt like regular table salt for foods. The slabs and plates are available to serve sushi or other appetizers on. -- Heloise
Oh, what a mess the city must clean up on Main Street. To get readers up to speed, here's the short version: Last year, the city purchased the dilapidated Longhorn Bar for $1, even though city leaders knew the building needed to be razed. In the months since, the city has paid a higher-than-expected $171,000 to demolish the building, and that's the good news. The bad news is that the process has adversely affected the neighboring VFW post, which shares a tenuous wall with the Longhorn.

AMSTERDAM -- On the day I visit the Anne Frank House, which is actually the family's hiding place atop Anne's father's business, the wait to get in is as long as three hours. Such is the attraction of this historic site, 53 years after it was opened to the public. Anne and her family were among an estimated 107,000 Jews deported to concentration camps from The Netherlands during the German occupation in World War II.
