Wow, it’s been over a year since my last blog post! Where did the time go? My New Years Resolution is to get back to blogging at least once ¬†week.

Apparently,  Kennett Square, PA is the mushroom capitol of the world! There’s even a Mushroom …

Sparky likes to blast the sound on these medical advice shows in hopes that I might actually be listening. He’s a guy. That’s their version of subtlety.
