I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. Dt. 30:19 It is interesting how words and statements significantly convey greater meaning and importance by adding a...

 

This Side of the Pond

Britain has never been great at winter sports. When you lack much in the way of serviceable snow, it’s hard to pilot a luge in much of a hurry. So it was no surprise to hear that we’d made it...

 

Dear NP

Dear NP, I have been a smoker for over 20 years. I talked to my doctor, and he wants me to take Chantix. What is the safest way to stop? What are the side effects of the different “stop-smoking...

This Side of the Pond

When a story from the UK made it across the pond last week, I couldn’t figure out what the fuss was about. Why was everyone so excited about a Roman ruin? In case you didn’t happen across the...
