To Blog or To Chat - Now That is the Question?

Saturday, October 12, 2013      5 comments

I'm channeling my inner Shakespeare! Since staring the BLC Challenge, one of the first things I've noticed is that I really don't blog any longer. Blogging for me was my talk to myself - it was either a beat me up/pick me up for what I'v... Read more

Endodontist - no good news

Thursday, September 12, 2013      4 comments

I've had a bump on the roof of my mouth since April. My dentist tried to treat it but when that didn't work, he sent me to an endodontist. It was determined the infection was coming from an old root canal/crown I have. Lets just say the cure is ... Read more
