Today was one of those cold, rainy days where you can't help but wonder if Spring will ever arrive or if Winter is hanging on a little longer just to remind you who's boss. I woke up early to the sound of wind and rain hammering down on the roof this morning...and to poor Brian feeling sick as a dog. … Continue reading Oh Rainy Day….Perfect for Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Although the trek East was very long and tiresome, it was all well worth it and we had an amazing time. I find the history, culture, and cuisine all very intriguing and being immersed … Continue reading Steamed Mussels in Red Thai Curry
Hello Everyone! I was doing work at a medical school campus this morning and I couldn’t help notice their unique drinking fountain with a reusable water-bottle refill. You may have seen one of these before (there are a lot of them at airports), but what made this one stand out is the computerized ticker which counts the number … Continue reading Say Goodbye to Plastic Water Bottles!
