Beginning Friday, July 7, 2017, California will become the first U.S. state to require Monsanto to label its notorious weed killer, Roundup, as a possible carcinogen. A recent decision by Fresno County Superior Court Judge Kristi Kapetan will allow California to proceed with the process of listing glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as a chemical "known to the state to cause cancer" in accordance with the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known as Proposition 65.

Do you remember when Marsha got hit in the nose with a football? Or when Barney got locked in the vault at the Mayberry Bank? And then there was the time Klinger dressed as the Statue of Liberty. All are scenes from classic television shows popular in the 60s and 70s.
With the 4th of July comes fireworks, fun with family and friends and probably a backyard barbecue. With regard to the safety of those things mentioned, you�d probably expect me to discuss being cautious with fireworks as it is not uncommon to hear about mishaps with such this time of year. But did you know that every year, 7,000 Americans are injured while using a backyard grill?
Two years ago, my family and I went to the beach. Before heading out to enjoy the sand and sun, I made sure that we were all lathered in sunscreen. We were outside for most of the day with consistent breaks under a canopy to avoid sunburn. Later that evening, we went out to dinner and as I took my first bite into my jalapeno burger, I had such a severe pain in my lips that I could not finish my dinner. My lips were sunburnt and I was miserable.
You�ve had a long day at work. You just want to go home and relax, but there�s that little voice in the back of your head telling you to stay away from the couch and that bag of potato chips and go get some exercise. Ugh! That is the last thing you want to do, but you know you should. The bottom line is exercise is good for you.
One great part about the summer months is the opportunity to fire up your grill and cook outdoors! For me personally, food just tastes better when it has been cooked over a hot flame outside. I have recently discovered foil-baked meals, which consists of meat, potatoes, vegetables and seasonings all packed inside an aluminum sealed makeshift bowl and then baked on the grill (or even in the oven if it�s not grilling season).
While I was in college, I took a world religion class. My instructor was a nun who was a lovely person and well-informed on the different religions of the world. It was really an interesting subject to study. It was, and still is, fascinating to me that many of the other religious works are similar to the St. James version of the Bible, which is my personal choice for spiritual instruction. How did the other religions come into being? Was it from a main religion that took off in different directions? Many scholars believe this to be true. For instance, Christianity and Islam is an offshoot of Judaism, and Buddhism is an offshoot of Hinduism. This is fascinating stuff, and, I believe that is the reason all the different religions have similar stories. A site regarding the origin of religion is here. http://www.allaboutreligion.org/origin-of-religion.htm
My 14-year-old son graduated from middle school this year. There was a ceremony for the kids on the school�s football field. Several of the faculty and students participated by giving speeches, receiving awards, etc. Of course, the highlight for me was when my son walked up to the stage and received his three awards. In addition to that moment, though, the principal�s speech really hit home for me.
With the hot weather upon us it�s important to be mindful of keeping our pets comfortable in the heat. To prevent overheating, keep in mind the following:
My family has taken a vacation every summer since I was 5 years old. Last year we went to New Orleans and this summer we are going on a cruise. It used to be just my immediate family (mom, dad, and sisters) but the trip now includes my extended family, too - aunts, uncles and cousins.
