Introduction I'm a retiree who likes to live life not witness it from a rocking chair. I was a single mom who raised two kids to adulthood from ages 4 and 6. We are all lucky we survived. Now, I am training a husband and a miniature dachshund, both of which have been with me for the last 5 years. Am I brave or what?

Why does the taste of pennies remind you of losing a tooth?

When I was a child, we used to have birthday cakes that contained coins. I never actually lost a tooth, but did bite down on a few pennies and nickels. Ouch! By the way, they did not taste like cake!
