Ben and I are a few days away from heading out of town for a big conference, so I should be spending my time preparing for our trip. Instead, I'm nursing a household of sick patients again.

How Black Mold in Your House Can Affect Your Family’s Health

We have had a beautiful mild Winter this year, but there's a downside. My allergies are already hitting me hard. I know what's causing my sniffles and sneezes, but do you?
