There are Side Effects of Medicine…and Food

We all hear the commercials for a new prescription (or read about them in magazines) with a list of side effects: rashes, blood clots, heart problems and sometimes even death! Scary, right?!

Are You Afraid of Falling?

I recently realized that one letter separates the word falling from failing…change the first “L” to an “I” and you go from falling to failing in an instant. FALLING FAILING But wait!
