Are You MRSA Smart?

Today I want to talk to you about an information give-away.
Information so extremely important to you,me,us and everyone.
It is about MRSA.
First,what is MRSA?
MRSA is a potentially life-threatening antibiotic resistant form of Staph infection .
It is becoming increasingly more common in community settings, like gyms, locker rooms, childcare centers and schools.
In the United States more deaths are as a result of MRSA than Aids.
Think about that for a minute.
Doctors say the rate of infection is growing more and more.
It is painful,tough and even deadly,yet there is something you can do to protect your family and those around you.
Get MRSA smart.
Learn how to reduce the spread of this awful infection.
Take a minute and visit STOP MRSA NOW
For those of you who cant use the hyper link the web site is : http://www.stopmrsanow.org/
There you will find tips on how to protect those around you.
You will also find a Play Book that provides educational information and several personal stories written by those that MRSA has touched.
Below are some tips to get you started.
Use them,share them with friends family,your child's school , gym etc. In short ,tell everyone.
1.Scrub up - Wash hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 15 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand rub sanitizer.
2.Wipe it down - Use a disinfecting bleach solution to wipe down and disinfect hard surfaces. (1 tablespoon of disinfecting bleach diluted in 1 quart of water)
3.Cover your cuts - Keep any nicks or wounds covered with a clean, dry bandage until healed.
4.Keep to yourself - Do not share personal items, like towels or razors, that come into contact with bare skin.
5.Use a barrier - Keep a towel or clothing between skin and shared equipment. MRSA is tragic, painful and even deadly.Help stop it in its tracks.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

TV Station Noggin Rocks!

You know T.V. never had much for kids like me growing up except for the stray Disney movie or saturday morning block of Woody Woodpecker and Bugs Bunny cartoons.
I'm almost envious of my tots because they have stations like Noggin that really know how to tap a childs imagination.
Here's an example that I love,Its Jerry Lawson and Talk of the Town:

Rock on Kiddos!

Politics and Life ,The Democratic Process

Watching the political equivalent of a WWF match lately I'm wondering what we tell our children about it all.

Its gotten pretty dirty .

Every ones scrambling to make that final last hour pitch to the undecided voter.

Bringing full guns to blow.Nothing seems to be off limits.

Do we tell our kids to win at any cost?

or do we tell them to play fair,take the high road,and chance losing?

Do we tell them to let the better person win or do we tell them its more important to make folks think you're the better person even if you're not?


Does this political process hold a mirror's view of who we truly are or does it serve as a warning of what we may become?

Hell,I don't know.I'm hoping all people aren't really capable of such raw nasty hatred.I'm hoping that what I see is only a small percentage .The kooks and crazies.

I'm hoping we have evolved beyond the gut wrenching putrid vile .That were a better class of being.

I'm hoping with fingers crossed that we really are the land of the free.The great melting pot of dreams come true and open arms.I'm hoping our children are a kinder and gentler group.That they don't inherit the warts we wear on our collective consciences.I'm hoping ,because what will become of us If they're not?
