Cute story about fairy #stones in a #Virginia state park.
You may have seen these enchanting little fairy stones that people turn into jewelry, but have you ever heard the legend behind them?

Using soil blocking and worm compost to get the garden ready for spring. A powerful combination!
In an earlier post, I reported on starting seeds with a Park's Biodome. I was happy with it, but as an organic gardener, I had some doubts about the Styrofoam insert used to separate and hold up the plants. It also seems hard...

Don and I recently returned from a three-day "camping" trip in a nice cabin in Virginia Beach. Highly recommended.

My family and I volunteered there on Christmas Eve. This is a wonderful church that does a lot of community outreach. If you are looking for a church family, check it out! We loved it and you will, too.

I had an off-and-on sensation of numbness in my left shoulder. This occurred most often when I looked down or lifted something up. My regular practitioner told me it was most likely nerve damage. She predicted it would get worse as I age. There was nothing I could do about it, she said, except take over-the-counter pain medications. As I aged it would probably get worse, so I might eventually have to switch to stronger (prescription) medications. I was not happy with this prognosis and decided to try chiropractic with Dr. Block and Dr. Donner. After a few weeks I noticed I was suffering from the numb sensation less often, and that I could lift things up without the shoulder troubling me. Now, after a few months of treatment , the numbness appears very, very rarely. I believe the day is coming when it will be a thing of the past. I also feel more limber in general. This office is competent, kind, and caring. You will get good treatment here, and you will be treated well. Highly recommended.
