On Saturday this past week we had a bit of excitement in Mason when all of the lights went out about 1:00 in the afternoon. The occasional power outage only affects a few people or one section of town, and our Electric crews can find the problems and work out the solution in pretty short order.

As the summer nears, you may notice more people getting in shape for swimsuit season. People are shedding a few pounds and toning muscles in order to look their best at the pool, lake, or beach. It makes me think about how logging your food and physical activity can help modify your behaviors in support of healthier choices.

INSOMNIA plagues many of us. With some, it is chronic, with others it is a short term. There are many causes. Among these are stress, indigestion, mineral deficiency, vitamin deficiency, hormone imbalance, too much caffeine, blood sugar issues, prescription drugs, etc. RESTLESS LEG syndrome is a common form of insomnia. In many cases, it is caused by a pH imbalance in the body and can be helped by supplementing a balanced calcium/magnesium formula.

I drove to Marble Falls the other evening and I realized rather quickly why we have been closed for two weeks at The Eckert James River Bat Cave. Every creek, tank, river and lake spotted along the drive was filled to the brim. Water was once again like glittering jewels in places that have been dry for years.

On a night when sleep was fitful, I caught the tail-end of a TV talk show. A guy quoted my Uncle Mort, who believes drinking buttermilk daily is the secret of his longevity. Of all the claims I’ve heard Mort make—and there are many—none I recalled involved buttermilk. First thing the next morning, I called my 102-year-old kin to share what I’d heard on TV…. ***** “The guy quoted me correctly, nephew,” he answered.

Bison are dangerous creatures. The reason I know bison are dangerous is because I’m not stupid. Plus there are signs here and there all over Yellowstone National Park that say stuff like, “The bison here are dangerous, wild animals. Stay away from them, dummy.” OK, the signs probably don’t say ‘dummy,’ but that’s what they mean.

Some have a “bucket list,” I have a wish list. I wish that holidays didn’t include Mattress or Car sales. Really, they can have sales but not on holidays. Shouldn’t we be celebrating the holiday and not the Mattress or Car sales? Would you want a Mattress on Valentines Day?

This week we have had Memorial Day so that the rest of the week is short for everything that needs to be done, and graduation and school’s last day are at the end of the week so there is an extra level of activity for most everyone. I am sure that when the week is really over we will all be glad for the start of summer and a brief time to catch our breath and slow down.
