Is it Florida or is it Rhus Tox?

Here I sit in the Sunshine State, which is finally sunny after two very cloudy and windy days, and I realize that my scalp doesn’t hurt as much as it has in the past. Hmmm…I took my first dose of Rhus tox (poison ivy) a week ago Monday and my second dose last night (sorry,Continue reading “Is it Florida or is it Rhus Tox?”

Another example of great customer service: Paragon Travel

I write a lot about good customer service because it so often goes unnoticed in our busy world.  Paragon Travel deserves recognition. Thursday I flew to St. John’s, Newfoundland for my annual trip to visit our property manager.  On June 21st I had the major surgery on both feet (as you know).  I was ledContinue reading “Another example of great customer service: Paragon Travel”

Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders

In preparation for our vacation, I made a trip to Riverdale Homeopathy on the Danforth to pick up some Calcarea Phorphoric.  This is the most amazing stuff that Witchy Woman suggested I take for pain relief for my arthritis.  The one thing I know about Florida is that while there’s a Dollartree, CVS, Publix, WalgreenContinue reading “Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders”

Travelling to Newfoundland – for 24 hours

Well, finally a reason to like my MacBook Air…it fits on the tray of an airplane seat – even when the seat in front of me is reclining as far back as it can go. I am about a third of the way to St. John’s. The man beside me is sleeping, the man acrossContinue reading “Travelling to Newfoundland – for 24 hours”
