  • Years ago, Art Linkletter regaled his adult audiences with a segment he called “Kids Say The Darndest Things.” It was even marketed as a book, I seem to recall. Yes, they do say, ask, probe and ponder things we adults have long since removed from our consciousness. We have so many more important and weighty topics to discuss … to debate … to decide … and determine. We are on the search for the bottom line, the closure to all dilemmas or difficult situations. We’ve stopped wondering while we continue wandering.

  • One of the greatest joys in veterinary practice is restoring health and vitality to an older pet.

    Veterinarians love helping a senior dog overcome its struggle to step up into the car so they can continue to enjoy walks in the park.

    We cherish the opportunity to boost an elderly cat’s immune system, enabling it to combat chronic illness and maintain high quality of life for as long as possible.

  • I don’t want March to get away from us without mentioning National Nutrition Month. This nutrition and education campaign is celebrated annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I have worked closely with members of this academy for many years and admire and respect them and the work they do.

  • New landscape projects may be on the top of your list as spring fever progresses through the population. It will continue unabated until June’s mid-90’s temperatures have us scurrying for the beach or the a/c. Projects range from the simple “spruce up” to elaborate redesigns.

    If you like the basics of your garden, just freshen the bed edges and add new mulch. Crisp edges where the lawn meets the beds and along sidewalks and driveways really make a difference.
