Almost three-fourths of your healthcare-related taxes, your insurance premiums, your out-of-pocket costs do not pay physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, EMTs, testing labs, and health aides. So where does the money go?

Happy Groundhog Day!

Living in the Northeast, I welcome February 2nd as the halfway point in the slushy slog to spring. Rather than pine for a fast-forward button to April, I've come to appreciate winter for its unique characteristics, even though I acknowledge the momentary misery it sometimes brings (soaking wet socks and shoes from icy slush puddles come to mind). Winter may seem bleak, gray, and dormant, but the natural world is full of surprises and wonder. I took this photo of a Fragrant Wintersweet tree (below) on January 31st at a local botanical garden. These honey-scented flowers, which bloom in the depths of winter, are surprisingly fragrant and detectable even to the scarf clad nose in the bitter cold. The natural world's sense of humor does not hibernate either, as evidenced by every plucky groundhog that has tried to bite the hand of a publicity-hungry politician on February 2nd. I can recommend raptor gloves to these novice handlers, but better advice would be to stay away from marmots! On a more practical note, as there are still six weeks left of winter, it's worth reposting these tips on preventing dry winter skin.
