I've been reading several articles lately about errors that have been made by various doctors. Sadly, it does happen. Doctors are just as human as the rest of us.

Do you love those yummy cheese and tortilla dips, like I do? I haven't tried this, but if it's half as good as this gal says, it would sure make a great afternoon snack for caregivers and carees.

P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much and read each one. I also do my best to reply to them all but, as you can imagine, there are times (many times, lately :) ) when caregiving needs do not allow for that. Thank you for your patience and your sweet comments.
