Vaccines: Are they good for you? Bad for you? Or good for all of us? Just last  week we offered all of our employees free flu shot vaccines  like we do every year. We set up a small private conference room, people sign up for a designated time slot, and a team of nurses take care of the rest. In fact, we also offer this to all the spouses…

The “not me” syndrome When was the last time you checked out some breasts? I mean, really checked them out?
