Seed Starting with Park's Biodome
I have not been very successful at starting tomatoes from seed since I've moved to my current home in Chesapeake, VA. My old place had no trees around it. One bedroom was very hot and sunny, so it was relatively easy to start seeds there. Our current home i...

Preparations for Spring Garden Season
I found out at a family gathering that my cousin, Paul, is now president and CEO of a seed company. He put some catalogs in my hand, and I made the mistake of taking them home. Let's just say that I wasn't planning to put a lot of time, energy, or money int...

YMCA of South Hampton Roads
People think of "The Y" as a gym. To me it's much more than that. It's where I meet my friends, get a good workout, take a fun group class, keep my body strong, or relax in a pool, hot tub, or sauna. The atmosphere is friendly, almost like family, especiall...

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.
