Flu, pneumonia vaccines important

With all the rain this week, I was glad to be house bound for a couple of days because I am ending a monthlong bout with an upper respiratory infection and prefer to cough in the privacy of my own home.

Parents need mission statement

I've been thinking a lot lately about the difference between the way I and almost everyone else in my generation (I was born in 1947, the year the flying saucers returned - just a coincidence) were raised and the way today's kids are being raised. The two ways in question reflect two entirely different mindsets - specifically, two entirely different understandings of the responsibilities involved in being a parent.
