Caroline, 89 years old, fell on her left side on the steps to her home while returning from church two weeks ago. The emergency department nurses put Steri-Strips® across it and told her to “keep it clean”. Yesterday she showed me a deep red 4-inch long open area on her left forearm oozing clear...
Every Democrat presidential candidate has vowed to seek reparations for the descendants of American slaves, which may cost, let's guess, $1 billion dollars. This "solemn pledge," this litmus test for all Democrat candidates, is an outright attempt at bribing the African-American population, which...
2 Timothy 4:1-2 “I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction…”   I encountered...

Q:When my allergies kick up, my eyes get red and itch like crazy. Visine® eye drops don’t really help me. Is there anything else I can try?
