It seems that the winter season has had its ups and downs. We went into it with a less than frozen attitude and that turned in a hurry into to deep freeze. By the time the end of February came it started to feel like spring, fooling both young and old alike into false hope. Then out of nowhere, we are facing our third Nor‘easter in a few weeks!

Every once in a while you get a cold, a respiratory infection that you can't really treat but buy all the help you can get with medicine that really only mask the symptoms, and the cold will last for weeks, never going away. You think: What do I have to do to rid myself of this cold?

Colds are just like the weather. You get to a cold season and hope that when you come down with a cold that it will only last for a week, there is nothing you can do about it.

This past flu season was particularly damaging, causing deaths of young children, I think over the past flu season the flu has killed more children and bringing the toll to 114 children this season, but experts say it's finally abating, thankfully, according to USA Today!

One would think that after all these years that we would have a universal flu shot developed in plenty of supply, but it doesn't work that way, each flu season is unique. The ambiguity of it all just points out how far we have yet to go.
