Bernie Sanders has been touting “Medicare for All” since he introduced the bill to congress in 2019. His plan is to get affordable healthcare to all Americans.

The premise is certainly something the country can use, but what why aren’t we fixing what we have. I know this because I’m currently getting ready to start Medicare.

The term “Medicare for All” is deceiving as the proposal does not plan on making Medicare for all. It is supposed to be an example of a national health initiative for doctors, hospitals, and medication that is accessible for every citizen to afford. …

I’ve been ill & lost 35 lbs. Now just below normal weight. Doctors still doing the weekly shoes, clothes, coats, any time of day weigh in. Remembering how accurate this…

I’m not a millionaire and I don’t have trophies all over my house. I do know what it’s like to give up a career you love because of your health.

It was tough for me to admit, at what was the height of my career, that I could no longer continue it.

What made it worse were all the people who said I’d be better and back at it soon. I knew that it wasn’t that simple.

Tiger Woods was barely out of surgery before the speculation about whether or not he’d compete again.

While his family worried if he’d…

We’ve all had a tough time in the past year, but perhaps no area has been through as many different disasters than California wine country.

I spent many years regularly writing about Sonoma. It began when I was covering wine regions around the country and around the world, and continued as I made friendships there and fell in love with the area.

Sonoma offers much more than its 400 plus wineries. It’s the home of redwood forests and the Pacific Ocean, some of the country’s best restaurants, wellness retreats, and hiking trails.

Romance author Janice Lynn agrees

It’s impossible to argue that 2020 wasn’t a tough year. We were all overwhelmed with Covid-19, elections, isolation, homeschooling, and, for many, job loss or illness.

I consider myself luckier than most, though I definitely experienced the loneliness since I am high risk and couldn’t be near most friends and family. I’ve spent a lot of time on my couch and thankful I have this guy with me.
