  • Recently, I heard about a young dad named Dillon Moore and a Texas dentist, Dr. Kenny Wilstead.
    About two years ago, Wilstead randomly came across Moore on Facebook and noticed that he wasn’t smiling in any of his photos and offered to fix his teeth, if that was the reason he didn’t smile.
    Moore replied that he couldn’t take off work, and that was that.
    Then this past September, Moore had a toothache while at work and his boss sent him to Marshall Family Dental in Marshall, Texas -- the dental office where Dr. Wilstead had his practice.

  • When it comes to bulbs we are not always met with consistent success.
    Before you blame the chipmunks, the guy who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower.
    Sunlight, crowded bulbs, pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance.
