The Sinus of Soy

When I woke up on Sunday, I felt a cold coming on strong. I took some cold medicine, which normally kicks out the cold symptoms pronto. Instead, despite a dose of meds to halt any further issues, I ended up with a runny, stuffy, and wildly sneezey nose.

The Delights of Dairy

Wednesday was Dairy day, much to my co-worker’s delight. It’s become a fun experiment to share with others, as they stop by my library to see “how am I doing” during the multiple allergen reintroductions.

Does Cycling to the Food Store Save Money?

One of the reasons we chose where we live is the proximity to local activities within biking or walking distance. This past summer, Chris and I ended up replacing our bikes. I bought a new bike in June when my old bike of 8 years fell apart and Chris ended...
