I have not been on in a while, because of some personal issues. First, and easier to deal with was my daughter's oral surgery. She had adult teeth impacted in her palate and they needed to be removed. The surgery was yesterday and I was so wo... Read more

So those of you who know, my sister in law calls her unborn child "Mr. Fetus" I told her I did not like that and would joyfully await the name (She already knows she's having a boy). Well, they chose a name and is it ever a doozy: Basil Marc... Read more

Just venting here for a moment. My sister in law calls her unborn baby, "Mr. Fetus". I find this a tad disturbing. Am I alone here or have we become so insensitive to life that our children are called fetuses until they are born? If you h... Read more

I was at the doctor today. Just for an annual check up, no big deal. During his consultation, as he was looking over the chart he casually commented, "Okay, weight looks good." Oh, how marvelous to hear that! No lecture on my weight, no disc... Read more
