A Haunting We Will Go

October 29, 2012

Boo! Halloween has crept up on us once again; that holiday that signals “free candy” to millions of kids around the country.

I Always Cry at Onions

October 23, 2012

It’s said that whenever George Washington felt a cold coming on, he would eat an onion, believing it would help keep the illness away. If nothing else, it would keep meetings shorter. Onions can enhance many recipes, but getting them there can make a grown man or woman cry.  Interestingly, the same compound, scientifically termed syn-propanethial S-oxide, that makes you cry when cutting up onions also gives them their great taste.

Neighborhood Spotlight: Chandler, AZ

October 16, 2012

If you’re new to town or this is your first time exploring Chandler, Arizona, then you’re in the right spot. Chandler has been a town of firsts since its beginning.
In 1891, Dr. Alexander Chandler settled on a ranch south of Mesa. He was the first veterinary surgeon in the area.

Chandler officially became a town in 1912, which of course means the town’s centennial celebration is currently underway!

Drink more water!

You’ve heard these words before, but many not have paid as much attention to them as you should.

Have you grabbed for your water bottle yet? Think about it—your body expects water.  It needs water to function, to maintain the proper temperate, remove waste, lubricate your joints, etc.

My overall experience was excellent. I liked how I could have my pre-ops in Tucson, since there is only one Surgery Center. Joe in Tucson was wonderful. He called me back promptly and alleviated my concerns about the surgery. Overall, a great experience.
