Fungal Toenails

Fungus is all around us, some good, some bad. Some we eat, some that are quite gross, some that can poison us, and some that will grow on us. Donald Trump’s approval rating keeps ticking down over the last few weeks and now stands at around 38%.

We all make mistakes, even when trying to make things better.Read More
