A Breezy Hike Up To Dana Plateau

Hiking up to Dana Plateau gave us the opportunity to view some of the complex geologic events that helped form Yosemite. We could see where Glaciers had moved massive amounts of rocks, yet left other areas alone.

Hawaiian Camping

One of our cheapest and most fun trips was a week we spent camping with two of our closest friends on the beach on the North Shore of Oahu. I am not really sure why, but we got a lot of blank stares and “you’re crazy” comments when we told people we were going camping in Hawaii, but we figured ...

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

There are many things to be said about children. They bring joy, enrichment, and many responsibilities in the parents’ life. I have a two and a half year old at home. Because of him my priorities in life changed, and I just can’t wait to get home and see him, to play with him. I enjoy all the words he ...

Small Changes, Big Consequences

Written by Dr. Adrian Buca, D.D.S. Little facts can have huge implications in one’s life. Fourteen years ago my wife came home with a piece of paper. It was an application for a Green Card in the United States. I didn’t have any intentions of immigrating to the States at the time. However, because all of her friends were filling ...
