Welcome – I’m Laurie, and I’m glad you’re here!

I’m a professional researcher. 

I’m also a wife, mother, young grandmother, business owner, health and home enthusiast, and hopelessly devoted to my two dogs!

I lost my mother several years ago to a preventable disease which was missed in its early stages by her doctors.

I started a blog for caregivers, and found that working on that first blog helped me move past the sadness and rage.

Since then, I’ve become passionate about researching medical and lifestyle topics, and distilling my findings into understandable, actionable information. 

I’ve also branched out into lifestyle and other family topics, researching and reporting on everything which makes life easier and enhances its quality.

I have no patience for click bait, fluff pieces, or slide shows, so you won’t find that here.  What you will find is up-to-date, well-researched information (and plenty of opinion!).


My goal is simple: share accurate, useful information to enhance your enjoyment of good health, family and home.


If you learn something here, and come away feeling more confident and optimistic, I’ve accomplished what I set out to.
