The storm was aptly nick-named, although Franenstein was the doctor, not the monster. You get the idea. Many people suffered much loss and heartache due to Hurricane Sandy. I praise and thank the Lord for sparing us any real lo... Read more

My grandson Josh is 12, going to be 13 in Feb. He's on a 13 and under team (13U). Unfortunately, due to circumstances I have yet to understand, they don't have another 13U team to play with??? So they're playing 15U (age 15 and under) teams. ... Read more

Good afternoon. I went back to my dentist this morning, and he's sending me to an endodontist (tomorrow for a consult; next week for the 'cutting') because my dentist says it's abscessed and may have gone into the bone - even though I had a ful... Read more

I've been feeling a bit anxious about the epidural I'm to get this Thursday....I don't like needles and the thought of one being stuck into my spine turns my stomach. So why am I having it done? I have a pinched nerve, which is causing pain do... Read more
