    Here is a woodland herb that can be found in shaded forests, often along damp, mossy creek banks in rocky woods. It likes places in the mountain and piedmont counties, but it also occurs, here and there, in the coastal plain. It is very widespread in North America, and was first named from plants seen in Canada. Its distribution includes all of the eastern states, south to northern Florida, and west to the Great Plains.

    It sounds so simple. Say what you mean — and mean what you say. 

    Then why is it so hard?

    It may well depend on how you’re wired. Some of you are quick to speak what’s on your mind. Others hold back.

    This may have to do with early childhood conditioning, or it might have to do with learned behaviors over the years.

  • “Idiot what?”

    Based on the current situation, I could understand the pet owner’s frustration and worry and overlook the slight. On my exam table lay his nearly lifeless dog, Chloe. Chloe had recently celebrated her sixth birthday and 48 hours ago was a perfectly healthy cocker spaniel. When I saw her, she could barely raise her head and was pale as my lab coat.
