Time and Time Again
As this is my last post of 2014, I thought it appropriate to talk about the passage of time. A lot of people use this part of the year to look back and see all that's gone on (or all that hasn't...), and make plans for next year. Now, time management is gre...

AKA " I hit you really hard in the head. " So Dr. Dina has been very busy this year . The majority of my posts have been recycled material when I remember it's my day to post (I've been averaging one post a month, and that will not do), and that's not reall...
