An Apple a Day Will Keep the Doctor Away

Okay, I don’t think the old cliche’ “An Apple a Day will Keep the Doctor Away” will be possible right now with the CoronaVirus.    However, when it is time for my annual visit to the Doctor, I’m sure it will take place by video chat and not the usual face to face visit.  My […]
