My wonderful husband and I went on a little adventure yesterday to Excelsior Springs, Missouri. Home to the historic Elms Hotel which is a Legend of America. As the story has been told in 1880 Indians and hunters told a man who had a daughter with tuberculosis that the natural springs in Excelsior Springs had amazing healing powers.

Antibiotic-Resistant Staph Infection Discovered in Kansas City - 10/28/07 05:09 PM
Initially the Staph Infection started out in Kansas, but it didn't take it long to jump the river and hit the Northland. Wednesday a Fox Hill Elementary student was confirmed with having the staph infection. North Kansas City school officials say the most recent case poses little threat and the student has been allowed to keep attending school. Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA can be life threatening. The biggest preventative is to WASH YOUR HANDS!

Unite! - 10/15/07 01:08 PM
I read the ... it's a Norwegian paper. Former Vice President Al Gore said that global warming is not a political issue but yet a worldwide crisis... and it is. He's donating his Prize money of approximately 1.8 million to the Alliance for Climate Protection. What a statement! We should all step forward and do our part to help out in this crisis. Sit and think a moment about what you could do, even in a small way to make a difference. Today is Blog Action Day... let's all take action.
