Dentist Expenses

I’m going to start this blog by saying that I have dental insurance – but it doesn’t cover very much beyond regular checkups.  At my most recent checkup, the dentist found some expensive problems that need to be fixed.

Content warning: This blog post contains details about my most recent dentist appointment. I’m not going to post anything graphic and will not include any photos (other than the one at the top of this blog).

Season Journey Chapter IV (Season 14)

In Season 14, I decided to play a Hardcore Barbarian as part of the Solo Self Found League. I did a Season Rebirth on Zena, a Barbarian that I’ve had for a very long time.

Unfortunately, she didn’t make it all the way through Chapter IV. So, this blog post shows what happened at what turned out to be the end of my Season 14.

Where were you on 9/11?

Years ago, I wrote three separate blog posts about 9/11.  The first was about where I was when it happened.  The second was when a class of first graders asked me questions about what happened, and the third was a ceremony that the entire school participated in.

I wrote these short pieces of writing on a blog that paid writers by the page click (and that no longer exists).

I read “Where were you on 9/11” on episode 040 of my Words of Jen podcast.

Measles Spreading is the Fault of Anti-Vaxxers

In 2015,  there was a measles outbreak in the United States (and other countries) that began when someone who had the measles visited Disneyland in California. In 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that measles had been eliminated from the Americas (the entire land mass that stretches from Canada to Chile).

But now, measles is back because people are choosing not to vaccinate their children against a dangerous, and preventable, childhood disease. In this blog, I will present facts about measles and the MMR vaccine. This blog also contains a timeline of the measles cases and additional contextual information.
