Yesterday's tantrum and today's light
So yesterday was a bit of a tantrum. It was the comment about rebellion made by a spf that helped me see the light. Over the years, I have adopted many healthful life practices. I don't add sugar to anything - haven't for over 20 years. I ea... Read more

Whose report will you believe?

Home after hiding from the heat
I have been gone for most of June, home, then gone a good part of July. My husband and I have a rv, quads, and we head up north to the cool weather. Both of us grew up in the country so the woods feels like it is where we belong. Taking a brea... Read more
2 days in hospital - wake up call to personal responsiblity
We get one heart, one body (and all its parts). It is up to us to take care of them. It is not up to the government, society or even the medical profession. To abuse our bodies most of our lives and then expect someone else to correct the dam... Read more
