Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

July 4th weekend is upon us. I sure wish we could put political parties aside and just all be AMERICANS. I’m so tired of all the posturing and pundits. It just seems to denigrate all that it took to gain our independence in the first place. The time, energy, and...

Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

It’s the first of the month, how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? That’s what I thought. I never remember mine. This year, however, Steve suggested I identify a word for the year, and I do remember that: Brave. How is that workin’ out for me, you ask?...
