Kathy Bradley - A bird perched offers a lesson

I have a new friend. A mockingbird has taken to arriving at Sandhill early every morning to perch on the empty shepherd's crook standing at the edge of the deck. Balanced carefully on the cold curve of iron, beak tilted into the crisp morning air, he looks for all the world like a well-fed vassal surveying his fiefdom. Or better, with his pale gray feathers that end in a long square tail, like a British bridegroom in cutaway and ascot.

Ask Dr. Gott 3/1

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a relatively healthy 48-year-old nurse with no history, no meds and no allergies. I developed severe abdominal pain and was diagnosed with diverticulitis. I knew immediately, as I have been preaching to my patients, that nuts, seeds, corn and popcorn were out of my diet, which my gastroenterologist confirmed. Although I am not a big nut and seed fan, I do like corn and popcorn.

For the Public Health by Renee Hotchkiss, Ph.D.

Throughout the last ten years of her life, my grandmother knitted hats for the newborn babies at her local hospital. What she didn't realize was that this small act of kindness, her form of volunteering, not only benefited those babies and their families but was likely to have improved her own health. That's right, volunteering not only benefits the community but it can benefit the mental, physical, and social well-being of volunteers.
