Funny man gets out of bed

On November 2-3, 1987, the US Senate chamber was sparsely filled, yet it was grossly divided.

A herd of cows grazing in a green, open field.

Most of us assume that snacking throughout the day will cause weight gain, but actually, this is the healthiest way to eat.

Have you ever gone to your doctor with mysterious health symptoms that keep popping up out of the blue? Over time, they just don’t go away. Your doctor gives you another prescription, you refill it, and swallow down the little pill with an icy diet drink. Darn if your symptoms still don’t go away.
