I'm looking to start a container #garden on my apartment patio this spring, and before I sink money I don't have into this project I wanted to see if anyone had some tips for #gardening on a super low budget.  (Pinterest is all about the very attractive, very expensive gardening tips, and doesn't help me at all)

So far my best idea is dollar store pots and planters, and starting from seeds.  As for soil/fertilizer, is there a cheap option without getting super chemicals into my belly?  Is investing in a raised bed really worth it or important at all?  Can certain veggies/herbs share pot space?  I'm very brand new at this and know nothing besides what google tells me.  So, if anyone with gardening experience has any advice (or wants to come do this for me) I'd be super thankful.

Ah I forgot something! A perfect combo for sharing: plant tomatoes with basil at the base. They grow well together and are eaten well together! All you need is a deep pot and a cage or get a special tomato hanging pot.

I'd give this a shot.  Obviously it's not functional unless others use it...but whatever!

Here comes the part where I just blow things up for the rest of my days. I like to destroy. Wait, what was the point of this game again?

Who knew a graham cracker company could move us like this? Last month, Honey Maid released an incredible gay-inclusive advertisement that celebrated the diversity of all families. The commercial, predictably, generated backlash from anti-gay g...

+Chronic Chronicles So story time.

I just got home from work, and for the first time tonight, I was floated from my usual home on med-surg, to the ED.  And while I know we all have our major flaws in health care, and we all have the ability to get jaded and judgmental from time to time...Holy Cow, ED staff really disappointed me.  

Sure, on one hand, I know and realize that they probably see more drug addicts and seekers than I do, and more frivolous visits than I do up on the unit.  And of course, I understand that a very young girl coming in with nothing other than a headache might look very suspicious.  But guess what?  Being suspicious doesn't solve the problem.  You know what does?  Attentive patient care.  

I'm not yet an RN, and I was new to the ED by only about two hours.  And yet, I managed to somehow be the only one save for the physician to find out that this girl's family has a history of MS, and that her (also young) sister had just been diagnosed after (you guessed it) presenting with chronic headaches.  

So maybe her headache was just a headache.  Or maybe it's more, but could have been dealt with better as an outpatient, or maybe it really warranted an immediate visit.  But what does no good is the assumption that only one of those three things was possible.  

I'm happy to go back to my comfy cozy med surg home, where the drug addicts are obvious and beat me up but at least the staff still cares.

At first glance, Andrea's Pub is a quiet, homely establishment with nothing to set it aside from your average dive. The tap list is nothing to blog about, the food is tasty and causes you very little worry, and the patrons range all the way from young mechanics, to old mechanics. You walk in and by the end of your first drink, find yourself wondering what brought you into a place like this. By drink two, you've begun to see some of its hidden charm. Before you realize what's happened, you're a regular. You find yourself caring about the owner, the employees, your fellow patrons. You notice new light fixtures and new haircuts. You playfully learn to hate Steve, and bitterly learn to love Dennis. Before long you puzzle it out. You now understand that Andrea's Pub is not an establishment from which you come and go. Andrea's Pub is a portal through which you step once. After that, you never really leave.
