Governor Ricketts “Asses” the State

This accurate screen shot was from about a year and ten days ago when Nebraska was in the midst of another crisis, the devastating floods of 2019. It popped up in my digital memories on March 14 and I have been trying to write this article ever since, but things have been …. wild. As […]

I have been practicing it illegally in my home for several decades. Equine massage therapy sounds rewarding for both animal and practitioner. What I am resentful of is the fact […]
