I work in a cardiac rehabilitation center, counseling patients on nutritional interventions to reduce risk for future cardiac events and improve health and overall quality of life – although some do not see this right away as bacon and …
Last week, I told you many of the advantages of having a library card from Charleston County Public Library. But there's more.

The benefits of shopping locally can't be overstated.
Apple just announced the iPhone 6 and a watch while I “listened” online with text blasts from California.
Short of a natural disaster, there has been an inordinate number of deaths of people close to me and my readers just this past week. Some were expected, such as long illnesses and the very elderly.

Wow, what a week. Fall armyworms decided to attack my yard and many others throughout the Lowcountry. Golf courses and turf fields have been getting their fair share of munching as well.
