DNA is our cellular blueprint. It is part of our genetic makeup that controls how our cells reproduce. Much research has gone into proving that so called genetic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer and more are actually the result of damage to the cellular DNA that causes a defective reproduction of cells in the body, which over time leads to degenerative disease.

When the school day is over, extracurricular activities provide much needed opportunities that can be carefully selected and matched to your child. As a life long 4-H member and now leader, I see the differences between the kids I can reach through 4-H and those I am not able to.

Sibling rivalry has never been a matter of concern for me or for my “older” brother, Fred. Oh, he’s a bit “testy” about this claim that he is “older.” (Okay, I’m seven years his senior, so I don’t specify who—or what—he’s older than.) My Uncle Mort said this of us decades ago.

I became involved with the Mason Senior Center a number of weeks ago. As a new member and employee of the Mason Senior Center, I have been granted the opportunity to share insight and updates on our activities. I have found that the Mason Senior Center is a great place to meet other seniors, engage in conversation, share stories and exchange ideas, plus we offer daily lunch Monday through Friday, weekly or monthly services and activities.

Sleepy. Sneezy. Happy. Bashful. Grumpy. Dopey. Doc. You name it. We’ve all been it. Sometimes all in one day. As for Snow White, that’s another story. And what a story it is. What magic. What wonder. What fun. The innocence and imagination captured by those Seven Dwarfs. But not all childhoods are innocent. Or full of imagination and delight. Some are full of abuse and neglect. Committed by adults. Often their own parents. Or kinfolk. To experience something different ...

Outdoorhub reports that “More sportsmen are opting for hunting-themed ‘camo caskets.’” Lest you think I made this up, you’re welcome to check out the story yourself at outdoorhub.com. Tell them I sent you and you get free cholesterol reduction emails for life. Several casket companies, it seems, offer tasteful coffins either completely covered in camo, or mostly solid with camo accents, or just about anything in between.

My endeavors to right the wrong of the phone company isn’t going as smooth as I thought it would. First, no one knows the person at the phone company that, CAN’T GET FIRED!” Nor, do they know where the home office/corporate office is. One told me that there are a lot of offices and no one big office!

On Friday afternoon last week the City took delivery of the new trash truck, and so we are moving forward now with the transition of our trash collection. We had intended from the first to wait a couple of weeks after receiving the truck before putting it into daily service, and at the present time that is still our plan.

As many have reminded me recently, I sort of gave the Hill Top a rest the last three months as Nita and I both had health issues but now were we are up and going. As a matter of fact, I checked the top of the hill today and it is still there.

ALLERGY season is upon us as Texas CEDAR trees bloom and pollen floats through the air. There are some great natural products that help alleviate the symptoms of allergies without the side effects of some of the “unnatural” products that many use. QUERCETIN is one of our bestsellers. It is known for inhibiting allergy and inflammatory responses.

Being located in a small town doesn’t keep the Library from being a “happening” place. Last year we logged 40,427 visits! That’s up from 38,087 in 2013, and soon we’ll have another good reason for people to visit—the Library’s new Writers’ Group. We have some people who want a place to come together and share ideas and share what they’re writing.
