A little giggle at my own issues I'm sure but I have to use humor to handle my frustrations; only way I can tolerate it. Anyway. Here it is near turkey day and we're supposed to be in fairly good...

I've often wondered if I am adding insult to injury by dying my hair every 5-6 weeks. I've read that there are concerns about links between certain cancers of the blood and dark hair dyes. Has...
