The holidays are approaching. I don't have kids so I have only an inkling of how crazy it must be to do your holiday shopping with your little ones in tow. The amount of respect I have for the moms and dads I see at the mall wrangling their kids, while trying to shop is HUGE. That being said...take a night off from the kids and let them hang with 4-H Teens at Spire Climbing Center.
Interested in joining 4-H?
Of course your are! "But...there is soccer, football, dance, church, homework.....AND we don't have a yard for a cow or pig." Haven't you heard?! 4-H isn't just about cows, plows, and sows. Some of the most popular projects in 4-H don't require a yard at all. They include robotics, music, arts and crafts, and sewing. Plus there is a "self determined" project which means your c

All Shook Up: With Too Much Salt
I'm wierd. I don't use salt. I never use it when I cook, unless a recipe calls for it (but then again I don't follow recipes often). I never add salt to my meal once it is on a plate. I don't know why, but I don't have the salt craving like most of the population. I also don't have high blood pressure.
