We had a week or two of sweltering days when the temperature hit 90°F then last week we had rain and very pleasant days. Not so this week...come back to me, springtime weather!

Have I mentioned that I LOVE homegrown tomatoes? My earliest memories of them were when I was 8 years old and stayed at my grandmother's farm for a week. I watched her milk the Jersey, helped peel fruit from the trees and gather garden produce. One afternoon she handed me a salt shaker and told me to go into the garden and eat all the tomatoes I wanted. I obeyed to the fullest extent my stomach could handle. I've never been the same since that day. They do taste better outside.
Some time ago I was in a medical office for a routine visit when a health professional asked me a question: "Your not taking any drugs for osteoporosis, are you? " (Whaaaa?? was blasting my brain, I'm not old enough....but I managed to recover before I actually spoke. :) They continued, "I was asking because they cause more harm than good and don't help with osteoporosis."
Now, this was a doctor, a real doctor (that doesn't take bribes (perks) in exchange for prescribing drugs to patients) telling me that legally prescribed drugs for osteoporosis do the patient more harm than good.
Happily, the Be Your Own Doctor II book offers four pages of things we can do to prevent osteoporosis. I recommend both books in the series as they are invaluable to me, and I've said before, I have no affiliation with them.
Hope y'all are enjoying the beginnings of summer.
