More young people dying from opioid overdoses, another mosquito borne illness detected, cancer spreading and spreading… BUT, this week, there were two good news stories that I want to share with…

Scientists are predicting we’ll be inundated with insects this year – oh joy! I found a tick on me last weekend; can I tell you how much I HATE ticks?! It was not a deer tick, just a brown dog tick, but creepy nonetheless. Another one was on the dog when she came in from…
