The deadliest insect on Earth, killing millions from West Nile virus, malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever and more, gets to defend—and explain—its existence. Did you ever go to bed with nary a mark on your skin and wake up scratching madly at the red welts that seemingly appeared out of nowhere?

I've worn eyeglasses for the past 30+ years and always consider my eyewear to be one of my most important accessories. First, because eyeglasses are worn on the face, and second, because I have to wear this accessory every single day–or I cannot see.

With graduation season wrapping up, I run into women like me who are riding that emotional roller coaster of pride and sadness. First, there's extreme pride in our children who have graduated, whether from high school, technical school, community college, state university or an Ivy League school. We know they've worked hard to get there, and we're very proud of what they've accomplished.

I look forward with anticipation to the warmer weather all year long, even more so when we have extreme seasons like we did this past winter. In the summertime I feel freer, happier and more at peace. While many will disagree that 80 degrees Fahrenheit is a comfortable temperature, it's the perfect one for me. But now that the warm weather looks like it's dug in its heels, I'm remembering that as much as I love it, it takes a certain amount of caution and planning.
