Irish pubs and whiskey may have been part of the humble origins of the Nashville-based band Humming House, but it was the co-producer of their debut album, Grammy award-winning Mitch Dane, who heard these musicians playing together before they were even a band. According to lead vocalist and songwriter, Justin Wade Tam, “Prior to the album, and living in Nashville, the current band members would sing Celtic tunes for fun and drink Irish whiskey in a town where musicians often don’t get a break.” Everything

Ever wanted to cruise but found it too expensive? Try a repositioning trip. At season’s end in fall and spring, some ships reposition, from the Caribbean to Alaska or Mexico, from Canada/New England to the Caribbean, and/or from Europe to the States, or vice versa. If a line finds greater demand from another port, they may choose to reposition for economic reasons. For convenience of flights, regular cruises often begin and end in the same ports.

Enzymes require certain conditions in order to be most efficient at their tasks. Minding our enzymes may make or break our state of health!
Enzymes interact in every aspect of human physiology. They work as a lock and key mechanism, specifically matching the substance that they are made to break apart or transform.

In light of Mothers’ Day I chose to reflect on what it is and why it is so important to be a fit mother. Since my children were born, I have struggled with the guilt of leaving my children to be physically fit. As a personal trainer and fitness instructor, I have seen mothers struggle with those same issues. My standard response in both cases is the same, “I am a better wife and mother because I exercise.” How do I draw that conclusion? Well I am about to tell you.
First of all, as I sat in the sun with my children on Mothers’ Day enjoying the time and our families’ happiness one thought came to mind. I will not always be with my children

Another week gone by. It was 80 degrees today! Too hot for May! Only one more week of school. How time flies. Be sure to attend all the last of school events. Over sixty students will be graduating from Lyons High, most receiving scholarships and awards. We are proud of our students, and our school, being one of only two schools of the St. Vrain District making it to the top 5% in US World Report. Congratulations.

Historically it takes pitchers a little longer into the season to catch up with the hitters. But this was ridiculous! In four games Monday night, there were one hundred and twenty-one runs scored, and more hits, walks, and errors than can be humanly calculated. But it was entertaining. If you haven’t taken the family down to Bohn Park on a
