This summer we had the distinct pleasure of visiting the nation of Japan, particularly Tokyo, Nara, Kyoto, and Kamakura. It is an amazing country and culture, and has so many wonderful treasures to be seen. Our week there only scratched the surface.

Lunar Eclipse

The evening of April 14/15, 2014 treated us to the first total lunar eclipse visible in Minnesota since December 2010.  It was beautiful, even in the midst of the bright city lights in Minneapolis. This photo was taken about a minute to mid-totality, at about 2:45 a.m. CDT. It was well worth seeing the wonderful…

Pharmacy Troubles, Albuterol, and Prescriptions

I went to my pharmacy the other day. I had run out of a medication and was after a refill. I hardly ever go the pharmacy without having some problem or encountering some annoyance or exercise in hoop jumping. This trip was no exception. One of my prescriptions expired just a few days before I walked up to the pharmacy counter. There is no grace period. It isn’t available over the counter. It isn’t available with a unexpiring prescription. I will need to wait several days before my clinic can review a request and transmit a new prescription to the pharmacy. All these things should change.
