I love this hour with my friend Jeanne Stolzer and hope you will, too. We unexpectedly spent the show talking about what psychiatric drugs, alcohol, and marijuana (and all potent psychoactive drugs) are doing to the personal lives of individual children and adults and to society, and what life would be like without these toxic chemicals.

Recently, she had to utilize her strength and courage once again, this time in the form of relocating to a new home late in life. Change in life happens in many forms and my mothers ability to not only survive but flourish, made me take pause of the significance of this vital characteristic that makes many wildly uncomfortable.
