Thanks Josephine. Did you really post this at 4:09 am? If so I am glad I could be with you in your quiet awake hours.

I grew up in the time of TV knobs, typewriters and one telephone service for all. We rode bikes, little red scooters and roller-skates. Cars had fins. I wondered why my family didn’t act like The Cleavers and why my dad was always so angry. I asked my mom why... Continue reading

We used to have two cats and a dog living with us. One cat, Sasha, was female, about eight years old and had been declawed before we adopted her. The other cat, Fluffy, (no, we didn’t name her) we had inherited from a relative. Like Sasha, Fluffy was female, declawed... Continue reading

I don't know how endorphins in semen compare to those released from patting a dog. We need to do some studies to find out.
I have been pondering the resignation of Dr. Lazar Greenfield, the president-elect of The American College of Surgeons. His offense? As editor-in-chief of Surgery News he wrote a Valentine’s Day editorial that quoted several recent studies touting the mood-elevating abilities of human semen and concluded with, “So there’s a deeper...

Rick, Thanks for your kind comments. I love my pessary crew, too!
Those who don't are missing a wealth of wonderful stories and knowledge.
