Holistic or Traditional?

This is an interesting day of awareness.  Even though I am suffering through my second cold/cough in 6 months, I am happy because I have discovered the source of this malady:  my traditional doctor!  Yes, really.  I do not get colds.  About 9 years ago, my holistic doctor recommended an unknown to me, and, until […]

This is Dedicated to a Friend I Love…

Happy Birthday, Beth!  You continue on your journey, a journey that has already become interesting as you travel the country “mobile”.  You have faced many challenges, but I have had fond thoughts of your adventure as you have spent some wonderful weeks I am sure in the area I refer to as “God’s Country”.  It […]
