    The lock on my apartment door is malfunctioning. I can lock it from the inside, but the key doesn't work, so I can't lock it when I leave the apartment to go walk the dog. It makes me nervous to leave my door unlocked. I called the emergency contact and he called the on-call maintenance guy, but ... Read more

    3/30/2015 4:09:39 PM, by EAGLEKEEPERZ

    I had been fooling myself. I was living to be what i thought was happy and treating myself for being a good person. Allergies made it tough to enjoy the outdoors without a mask as my asthma was out of control. Exercise also slowed to a 'need to go' basis. Then I had an asthma attack that would not c... Read more

    3/30/2015 3:10:56 PM, by ILIKEIRISES

    This year I can relate the journey to waiting for spring. About mid-March I get real weary of winter chills, shoveling snow and bulky winter clothes. Oh to be a snow bird someday! So every day I watch for signs of spring coming. I check the forsythia bush in our neighbor's yard, look for the budding... Read more
