In the Light (or should I say dark)

“A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.” — Irish Proverb I don’t know about you, but I love the spring ahead to Daylight Savings Time! The extended light part…the getting used to the sleep loss, well that can take a couple weeks. Sleep loss is the real [...]

One Ski, Two Ski

I’m baaaack! Yes, I was gone last week and Dr. Jean covered for me. I was visiting my son in college at the University of Colorado for a few days, then I went to ski with several friends at Copper Mountain. The picture above is a shadow selfie while on the chairlift. The chairlift is [...]

It’s crazy to think that when I met Dr. Jean, Nancy was Dr. Jean’s current age and only three of the grandchildren where born. Time passes, families expand, and as a result there is growth [...]
