Berry white teeth? Sounds great, if only it worked…
Professional teeth whitening is safe, convenient, and economical, but everyone is open to a better way to do anything. Naturally, many people took an interest when stories began circulating about an organic whitener that you could make at home, for just a few cents. According to some of the internet’s self-proclaimed experts, a mixture of baking soda and strawberry (or other fruit) could rival professional whitening products. Unfortunately, the claims did not hold up when tested.

Researchers at University of Iowa tested the concoction, as compared to professional and over-the-counter whitening products. The teeth treated with berries and baking soda showed no measurable improvement in color after ten days of treatment. Even more concerning, it softened surface enamel by an average of ten percent. While whitening from the fruit bowl may sound tempting, research confirms that professional whitening is the best way to make your smile sparkle. Read more

My debut as Drosselmeyer, or "If you can't beat them, join them."
Well if I can’t get my daughters to hike with me, then maybe I can join them with their ballet and at the same time surprise my wife with my debut performance. So with over a month of practically the whole ballet school knowing, we were able to surprise my wife during the final dress rehearsal the evening before my performance. Later, we laughed and talked about it the rest of the night while re-living the emotions that led up to the final moment of the surprise and all that went into keeping it a secret for so long. As for my role, it was challenging which of course made it a lot of fun. What a great first experience to help start my 6th decade of life! Click here for more pictures
