Finding the right tree isn't always easy

You all know that I’m a big lover of dogs. I had Glory, the black and white springer spaniel, for nearly 15 years, and now Milly, the liver and white springer spaniel, has been with me for almost six years.

I was looking back over some of my old columns last week to find a few to share with my journalism class, when I found one from almost exactly 10 years ago.

Is there anything I can eat that won't kill me?
The latest news story about something that could kill me has led me to a decision. I'm no longer going to read news stories about things that could kill me.
