(It’s time now to walk through southeast Washington under the pretense of pheasant […]

Willie and Taj Mud Brothers

It finally happened! Taj and Willie are playing together after weeks of uncertainty. I believe that Willie was fearful of hurting the little guy when he first came home.

Those symptoms are evidence your immune system is at work fighting off the invading “microbe” so it doesn’t get deep into your respiratory system.

Chicken Mango Stir-Fry

In just 11 days, I will be racing my first full marathon: The 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Logging hundreds of miles during several months of training has both mentally and physically prepared me to run 26.2 miles (hopefully!), but it has also made me hungry. During my training, I try to seek out […]
