The Big Front Elm Coming Down

Trees around a house give it both a practical and an emotional shelter from winter winds and snow, and whatever passing motorists – and even pedestrians may think. It’s not the only factor, but don’t trees help to turn a house into a […]


My First Amazon Sale

A Bone Density Test

Happening All At Once!

Whew! Today is a day when all kinds of things are happening all at once! I knew I had a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, and that I’d want to get this RoseBouquet written and published by noon for sure.
