With Thanksgiving Upon Us.....


Copyright© 1998 – Jill Kring Carter

Written, 3am, Thanksgiving morning, 1996

I wrote this the night before (well, the morning of) Thanksgiving, back in 1996, 3 months after my mother was diagnosed with an incredibly rare cancer, about which they knew little, including how to treat. She was 3 months out of major surgery, home from rehab, having learned to walk again but with a walker for the rest of her life. Ten hours away, I was at home with a… Continue

Raisins Linked to Oral Health

How many of you grew up believing sticky raisins actually weren’t all that good for your teeth?

I found something interesting today ...

New research published in the journal, Phytochemistry Letters, shows that raisins may benefit oral health because they possess antimicrobial phytochemicals that suppress the growth of some oral bacteria associated with dental cavities and gum disease.

The in vitro study isolated eight known compounds from raisins and then… Continue

Stay calm ... this economic crisis shall also pass

Like most of you, I woke up this morning anxious to see where the stock market would go. Like most of you, I shook my head as it dipped below 8,000. I've checked my 401K and it's way down. I've checked my home value and it has gone down as well (although not as severely in Oklahoma as other parts of the nation).

I was reading some blogs this morning and found some good, simple ideas within them. Will it bring your money back? No. Will it hopefully talk you off the ledge?… Continue

A Medical/Dental Mission Team Experience in Romania

My experience as part of a Medical/Dental mission team in Romania............................

On the edge of Eastern Europe, Romania is in many ways, everything one is accustomed to in Europe. It is stunningly beautiful, with long patches of 800 year old cobblestone roads still in use, and dramatic architecture. It is also full of towns and cities with clear evidence of a tumultuous past, and gypsy villages of people merely existing. Slowly, many parts of Romania are catching… Continue

PennWell Dental Group's “Community” Page, and the 6 Degrees of Separation…

Indeed, the world is smaller than we realize, and the more time we spend online, the more aware of this we become. In 1967, Stanley Milgram did his “small world experiment,” from which came the theory “6 degrees of separation.” This states that everyone in the world is connected via six people. Several subsequent studies have backed this theory. In the professional world of those with similar credentials, it’s probably more like 3 degrees of separation, which makes it a very effective… Continue

A Golf Pro's Most Valuable Lesson

Standing on a 75cm fitness ball, Ben Witter bounces a golf ball on a wedge, drops the wedge, grabs a driver with his other hand and strikes the ball in mid air. His drives rarely fly less than 300 yards, unless he wants them to. He can wrap a ball around a tree, left or right. He can also bring the ball back in a boomerang effect through an uncanny understanding and application of the physics of the golf swing.

Ben Witter ( and ) is… Continue
