All men were not created to shop! On the last day of semi good weather I went shopping and my observations of men shopping was heart breaking. This one man was just standing at the end of an aisle with basset hound eyes and almost in a state of shock watching his lady shop.

BONE HEALTH is not just about calcium. Bone health is a function of the way minerals are absorbed and used by the body. Healthy bones also depend on the right combination of minerals. Too many supplements contain only calcium and vitamin D. I have been recommending calcium balanced with magnesium and trace minerals for years.

The winter weather still seems to be hanging on even though this past weekend we had our clocks “spring” forward and this week is “spring” break for the schools. We are busy at the City dealing with a number of issues and I hope that by the time spring actually gets here that we will have several problems taken care of.

Credibility of many professional athletes’ opinions on matters involving their sports is marginal, and on various “common sense” topics, it deserves even less respect. When certain athletes claim to have admirable parenting skills, beware. It’s then we’d score big returns in the produce business if we could find a trailer load of overripe tomatoes.

Thank goodness Brooke is a pretty good sleeper, and my soon to be stepdaughters are too. But I know if the kids aren’t sleeping well, no one is, and tired parents are grumpy parents, so we want to avoid the problems! Here are some suggested solutions to a few common sleep problems in children. The Sleepwalker Sleepwalking occurs when a child is partially aroused out of deep sleep.

If you’re in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, you may be in the mood to read something Irish. Non-fiction reads might include Thomas Cahill’s How the Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold Story of Ireland’s Heroic Role from the Fall of Rome to the Rise of Medieval Europe (941.5 CAH) or Seumas MacManus’s The Story of the Irish Race: A Popular History of Ireland (941.5 MCM).

Food. Not so simple anymore. Questions must be answered... Paper or plastic? Sweet or unsweetened? Medium or rare? Spicy or mild? Red or green sauce? With or without cheese? Mayonnaise or mustard? Chips or fries? Regular bun or Texas Toast? Small, medium, or large? Is that for here or to go? Smoking or non-smoking? How many in your party? Food. Can’t live without it. Nor without all the questions. Food servers ask them all day long. How do you want your eggs? What would y ...

These nifty little dinner rolls will give your table a different look because of their unique shape. Unfortunately, they won’t last long, so you may want to make up a second batch of them if you’re expecting some company with big appetites for bread! Ingredients: 1 package (2 ¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast ¼ cup warm water (110 – 115 degrees) 1 cup warm milk (110 – 115 degrees) 1 egg, lightly beaten 2 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons shortening (I use unsalted butter instead of s ...

People often send me letters, emails, and texts with stories about strange stuff that’s happened. That’s how I get a lot of my column ideas. Normal stuff isn’t interesting. And whenever someone sends me something like that, they always, always (yes, two alwayses) say, “This made me think of you.” Now, maybe I should be offended by these notes.

GLOBAL WARMING??? YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! However, the old timers would say, “one extreme will follow another extreme.” So, I guess that means we are in for a hot summer. I’ll try and remind myself and you of this around the middle of July. I’ve found that I don’t need to travel to other countries.

This week’s Lenten Lunch is at the First United Methodist Church. It’s that time of year: Daylight Savings Time Begins! Let’s all spring forward into Spring next Sunday morning. It’s about time. Prayers are needed for John Jordan, Gary Grote, E. Wayne Jordan, Blanche and Mac Sessions and for all the persecuted people in Syria.

The weather has occasionally given us a pretty day, but generally the past couple of weeks have been cold and damp. I am grateful that we have not had much ice or snow and have not been as “shut down” as many other parts of the state and nation. I just look forward to warmer weather, and we all know that spring will show up and shortly after we will be having to deal with the heat of summer.

SKIN is the body’s largest organ. The skin has multiple functions – one being that it is an important organ of elimination. The Chinese medical system refers to the skin as the third kidney – meaning that it functions to rid the body of excess moisture and toxins. The HEALTH of our skin is reflected by its appearance and texture.
