He took a bite of this super vegetable ...

on Wednesday, 10th July, 2013

I was on call this past weekend and in and out of the hospital everyday. Babies seemed to come only in the middle of the nights whenever I was on call.  Luckily, I  was able to run my usual 3.2 miles Sunday afternoon followed by a 50-minute swim in my next door neighbor’s pool, so the weekend call was not all bad. The Washington area has been plagued with a 90 degree heat ...
