Is It Pink Eye? Or Something Else?

What You Need to Know About Eye Injuries and Infections

What You Need to Know About Eye Injuries and Infections

As I write this article, I have to pause and put eye drops in my left eye because — in a display of strange coincidence — I happen to be dealing with my own case of conjunctivitis as we speak. The infection was gleaned from my snuggly 5 year-old’s pillow as I lay down with him the other night when he first came down with his most recent virus. It’s ironic, perhaps.

Fast & Easy BBQ'd Flank Steak with Marinade

Marinate your steak the night before for a stronger taste, or the day of for lighter flavour. I also like drizzling a little bit on broccoli as well. While I chose flank steak, you can use this marinade on any cut of steak.

The couple's 19 children round out the family photo – now only available in panoramic view - and "star" in a TLC show.

10 People We Can't Just Can't Understand

I Can Get Along With You But It Doesn't Mean I Understand You

I can get along with almost everyone. I’m pretty easy-going like that.

But.

(There’s always a but, isn’t there?)

But there are certain types of people I just don’t understand.

It doesn’t mean I can’t get along with you. It just means that much like calculus, I just don’t understand you.
