The Longest Day

November 23, 2010


I marvel at the healthcare system we have here.  There are a lot of critics, but for the most part I think everyone does a pretty good job. I don’t know if my attitude comes from an excess of gratitude for the smallest things, or if I just accept a really low standard.  LOL.  But […]

November 21, 2010
