Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Admittedly younger and more naïve than he is today, Laartz – an infectious disease specialist and author of the book How to Avoid Contagious Diseases…

Japan, Charlie Sheen, and a Mom

This is the world my kids are growing up in.  The world I am raising them in.  A world I will have to explain and analyze and understand myself.

Even if I don't.

I am deeply saddened by the natural catastrophe in Japan.  Angry that it had to happen, frustrated that enough can not be done fast enough, and impressed with the resolve the country has to make the best of an impossibly horrible disaster.

It is not lost on me that this will not be the last disaster ever to…

Embracing the Hour Glass

“Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.”

Nope, this is not about Days of Our Lives, or soap operas, or even time or sand…it is about aging and accepting the parts of us that no longer look like a twig, but now look like an hourglass.

My Heroes: A Cancer Story

For many years I worked in oncology nursing in the hospital setting.  I consider that time the most difficult of my career, yet the most rewarding.  I consider it an absolute privilege to have worked with patients suffering from cancer.  They did suffer too.  Most of my patients were very ill.  Most of them died from their disease.  I was there to see many of them die.  They left a mark on me, but not a scar.  They blessed me to the deepest part of my soul with their beauty, their grace, and…

Simple Steps for Preparing For an Emergency

Emergency Preparedness

Two years ago a rogue tornado tore through my neighborhood. Eight of my neighbors' homes were completely destroyed by the violent wind and rain.  The tornado came so suddenly, Dr. D. and I barely had time to get down to our basement. We huddled in a crawlspace under our stairwell as we listened to what sounded like a freight train blowing down our street. Our power,…

A Very Proud Day

I'm just so incredibly proud to make this announcement today; my book is now available to buy and I am ecstatic! I never thought this day would come. It's taken nearly three years from typing Chapter One to having it published.

Desserts in Lai Lai Singapore


It was just me and my girl on Monday when Aaron left for work early in the morning. We woke up quite late and skipped our breakfast. Then we walked to the shopping mall in Jurong Point 1, less than 10 minutes from the apartment. By the time we reached there, it was almost lunch.

We shared a plate of rice with 3 dishes…

Hail to the Handwritten Note

By some standards, handwriting is already considered an “ancient” skill. Next thing we’ll know, it will be an extinct art form practiced by only a few artisans. Well, not in my lifetime if I have anything to do with it! These days, the charm of receiving a handwritten note is manifest (any handwriting will…

Inspired Infused Vodka

Always on the lookout for interesting “indie” brands in all categories, we thought it would be fun to pay tribute to another type of art, that is, the art of fine booze-making. Micro-distilleries, like micro-breweries have become more and more popular in the last decade. With reason. Many of these micro-distilleries make award-winning vodkas, far superior in taste and quality to the commercial brands. But, since award-winning in the vodka world pretty…

Have you wondered if God's hearing you? I've wondered that. But know that your God is NOT the God of delays, pauses, forgetfulness, To-Be-Announced's, To-Be-Determined's & forgetful RSVPs. God is WELL AWARE of my voice, my tears, my cries, my needs, my pleas, my begs, my requests, my burdens...and yours too.  It's not a question of can God hear us; it is a question of am I willing to wait for Him to answer? Here are some encouraging verses…

Girl's Night In

By Lisa Hughes Anderson - Guest Contributor

Sometimes it takes getting away to come back to yourself again.

What better way to raise your spirits than to spend a carefree night with good friends. I suggest an old fashioned sleepover, just like we use to do as kids. Gather up the girlfriends and host a night in pj’s and sweats. Order pizzas,…
