Rose Among Us

We finally hit the first frost where I live. Better late than never, right? So that means I have to go through my organic roses stat and take care of them for the Winter. How do I do that? I collect any rosehips and any rose flowers or petals left on my bush. It’s pretty

I have a Dream, that Love May Come For Toothbrushes!

Was this title in poor taste? It did rather hint at MLK, the much lauded search for true love, and… and dental care. I know, it doesnt sound exciting. And it really shouldnt. All of that saliva, and gum disease, not to mention the rank stench of decay coming from patients who obviously skip a

Your Health: The Whole Picture

So Hoity Toity with your Special Diet. Allergies? Pshaw.

Dear Misunderstanding friend/family/etc trying to convince me ‘one bite won`t hurt’, Sure, I like being special. I like ‘special‘ when it`s used as a codeword to mean brilliant, or above average, or just really cool and amazing. Who dislikes that kind of special? But then there`s the kind of special that is said in a

New Years: Challenge Accepted!

I’m talking about the all time hardest challenge. At least, for me personally. I’m talking about the sugar challenge! The goal is to have 15 grams or less a day. This may sound easy, like all you have to do is skip dessert, but my normal go to breakfast sabotaged me yesterday with jam, toast,
