Thus far this month, we’ve had 3.54 inches of rain. And, since the beginning of the year, we’ve totaled 5.79 inches. As it goes for winter moving into spring, those are very good numbers. During this last rain period, I've heard numbers that go from 1.5 inches all the way up to 3.5 inches.

What a good way to start Spring, than with a good slow soaking rain. One of the laws of Mason County is to have a good rain gauge. Why? That’s a no brainer, because when there is a rain, everyone wants to know how much rain you had. Personally, I gauge the rain by the pot holes in the drive way, also known as “Lake Zesch.” Don’t laugh, I’m pretty right most of the time. Most of what I write about falls on deaf ears, but it does help to vent.

GREEN TEA is a popular beverage. It comes from the same plant that black tea does, it is just less processed so it contains more of the phytochemicals that have health benefits. GREEN TEA is well known for its antioxidant properties that come from a particular polyphenol known as EGCG, or epigallocatechin gallate, which is over 200 times more powerful than vitamin E in neutralizing free radicals.

Brain researchers now believe that keeping the brain active by learning new things such as a new language may help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s. The library has a good many resources for learning Spanish. We have audio programs on three levels and Rosetta Stone, but the best resource may be our partnership with volunteer Carmen Griffith.

The rain was very nice last week, and with the warm weather this week I expect we will see spring popping up everywhere. Hopefully the trees will start turning green with new buds and the wildflowers will start their annual show and turn the hillsides blue for the next few weeks.

There are some important safe handling methods to remember this time of year when you’re decorating, cooking or hiding Easter eggs since eggs are handled a great deal more than usual around Easter. Remember to: * Wash your hands thoroughly with hot soapy water and rinse them before handling the eggs when cooking, cooling, dyeing and hiding them. * Be sure and inspect the eggs before purchasing them, making sure they are not dirty or cracked.

While watching the CBS Evening News expecting the usual “The world is coming to an end coverage”, to my surprise, they had a story about a Senior Citizen who was an exercise fanatic. She works out four days a week in the gym lifting weights, doing push-ups, and all the exercise programs in the gym.
