Posted on November 02 2012 by Pat Killingsworth

I’m up two or three times a night with severe cramping in my right foot and shin–and now my stomach and hands, too.  That’s my excuse for mistakenly re-running Danny’s column about the benefits of eating raspberries and drinking pomegranate juice yesterday.

I Apologize For Technical Difficulties…

Posted on May 13 2011 by Pat Killingsworth

This morning I learned that Blogger, the blogging site hosted by Google, was down and under repair.
