Thursday, Jun 4, 679彩票网

We were under curfew. No one was on the streets. The air was filled with smoke, and a looter was killed at the corner store. Darting between houses, we were careful not to be seen, nor arrested.

679彩票网The Morning Routine | Doctor’s Diary with Dr. Gene Dorio
Sunday, May 31, 679彩票网

I wake up without an alarm clock. I’ve done that for years. If I have to catch a plane or train, which is rare nowadays, I set one as back up. First thing I do is heat water for my hot chocolate. Dependent on the time of year, this is usually around 5 in the morning, before sunrise. I take my blood...
