A Dental Hygienist Named Janet Proves Poets Are Not the Only Rhymers on this Planet

Dear Bay Weekly:

As a practicing registered dental hygienist, I found the article by Ariel Brumbaugh [What to Do with My Life: March 19] both interesting and humorous. So much so that I have been moved to reply in kind. Forthwith:

There is a girl named Ariel, a poet to be
Who did not want to be a dental hygienist like meYou have to see the humor as I did in her story
When pushed by her mother, she did not see the gloryOf spending her days in the oral cavity of young and old
When she could be rhyming words instead of looking at goldWith all due respect it has been a noble profession for me
And I adore all of my patients from three to 93 — and then some.
–Janet R. Taff: RDH, Tracys Landing

Window of Opportunity to Power Your Home with Wind

Dear Bay Weekly:

I’ve learned that ALL Marylanders and Washingtonians (sorry Virginians) can now buy and utilize wind power cheaper than purchasing electricity from power sources that burn fossil fuels such as coal, a leading cause of climate change.

Please go to and check it out for yourself. Once you decide to make the switch to power your home and/or business with cleaner, cheaper wind power, please, please, please spread the word and tell every neighbor, colleague, friend and family member you know to do the same.

Let’s all work together to build a better tomorrow for the generations to follow. Get involved today; Mother Earth needs us all to do our part. We can do it! Yes, we can!

Rewarding Story

Dear Bay Weekly:

Thank you for Diana Beechener’s wonderful article “A Boy and His Bot” [March 12]. Part of [my son and home-school student] Tony’s managerial tasks were to promote an interest in engineering among others and share the First Lego League experience. [As project manager] I wanted to showcase all the work our team members put in during the five-month season and reward them for a job well done. Your article helped Tony and me both achieve our goals.
