66 – It’s Always the Quiet Ones

It’s always the quiet ones.  Isn’t that what folks always say? It’s the quiet ones that’ll getcha. It’s the quiet ones that’ll surprise ya. Well, thanks to a visit from Rayna Elrod this week (who is herself on of our quiet soft-spoken souls), I was reminded of a story about one of our young high…

59 – Women in History Month

March is Women in History Month.  The blogs thus far have been filled with many many strong women that have influence me and/or #3 Lyon Block.  I have talked about Dess Rudder here before as a pioneer in Pharmacy for women.  I have talked about my mentor, Carol Mahuron as the kind of woman and…

57 – The Moose is Loose

We have had the Christmas Moose gracing the front window to promote the winter season and more recently to advertise our support for the Lady Lions run for the State Basketball Tournament.  Now the Moose is suited up in support of the Lions as they begin their pursuit of a sectional Title.  The Christmas Moose…
