But, “white ...

Cleaning floors causes trauma for humans and animals alike

By June Mathews I hate to mop. In fact, I hate anything having to do with cleaning floors. So while I manage to do a passable imitation of someone who keeps a decent house (but not spotless by a long shot, mind you), I’ve lately failed miserably in the floor-cleaning department. Right now, I believe my kitchen floor is dirtier than it’s ever been, and the hardwoods, well, I can hardly stand to think about t ...

I wrote in a column in an issue that month that every time I leave the house, I startle another driver’s attention away from the cell phone and back to the road so he or she can maneuver back across the double-yellow lines into their own lane.
