What a snow season that was: I say WAS because we're hoping that the snow is all gone for the season. Those of us who made it through the season are stronger and our hearts are with the goats that didn't make it. Each passing has been logged in our chronicle of lessons learned. I …

Healthy Skin Naturally: Skin Structure, the epidermis

Welcome to the first section of my discussion on Ms. Tourles' book, Naturally Healthy Skin. As mentioned previously, I've divided my discussion of this chapter into three sections.
