Do you remember losing your first tooth? Our baby teeth, or primary teeth, often seem unimportant to children and parents alike. To better inform the public about how primary teeth are important to a child’s development and school success, the McMillen Center’s CEO Holli Seabury has written
It seems fitting that the studios dump all their less successful projects at the height of awards seasons. Compared to the films up for Oscars, movies like Winter’s Tale remind us just how bad movies can really be. Normally, I have some affection for bad movies, but this time let me tell you—life

This year Bob Seger will celebrate his tenth anniversary as an inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The honor is his because of his hardscrabble, up-by-the-bootstraps life story; the way he can forge lyrics that are a combination of personal autobiography and everyman’s experience;

Well, totally unlike last year’s spring season, this year’s spring gardening is off to a very slow start. In 2012 we experienced temperatures in the middle to high 80s in March, repeated again and again in April. This year frankly, it is cold! What happened? I have always preached the
Day started slowly, after Steve and Snort were already through two big pastures and into the birth of the hills. Sure was pretty, too, he noticed. Kinda pink and made everything glow.
