St. Mary's will be constructing an urgent care facility along Indiana Highway 62 at the Boonville Wal-Mart shopping area.  This is good news for everyone who lives around the Boonville area, including my family.  Boonville is about 15 minutes away from where I live, but Evansville is 45 minutes.  That means that medical services are becoming more accessible to us!

Short on Money? Spend it on These Inexpensive Superfoods

All of my adult life, money has never been plentiful.  When Jenny and I got married, we decided that even if money was short, we wouldn't skimp on quality food to eat.  In other words, we would eat healthy foods even if we had to spend a little more money to get them, and to do that, we would sacrifice in other areas, if need be.  It's always been important to us to eat nutritionally-packed foods, as opposed to getting by on cheaper but not-so-healthy foods.  So if you want healthy nutrition on a cheaper budget, try these (relatively) inexpensive "superfoods."

Cat Bites Can Cost You and Cause a Small Cat-astrophe

Okay, so puns aside, a cat bite on your hand is something you normally shrug off and don't think about, outside of the irritation while it heals.  Heck, I have a cat and play with her all of the time.  Yes, I let her bite my hands because I know that she's just playing.  Unfortunately, there's evidence to support that this is exactly what you don't want due to bacteria that can get transferred from the cat's mouth into your hands' joints.  The result can be painful and dangerous.

I haven't ever used an extender dog leash, although I've admired them from a distance.  I don't know why I've never purchased and used one, but after finding out what can happen to those who do, I'm glad I don't.  Do you use an extender leash?  If so, you want to continue reading.

We Feel What We Eat and Our Moods Are the Result

Springtime is here and we're all bound to feel a little bit better because of it, but there are other things that can affect our mood and we may not realize it.  I'm not referring to how your spouse or coworkers are treating you, I'm referring to more covert things that can affect your mood, such as what you eat.

Radar Can Be Used for More Than Tracking Weather and Speeding Cars

Have you ever been pulled over while driving for speeding?  At one time in our lives, we all may have had the "pleasure" of being tracked with radar by law enforcement.  We're all aware, as well, that radar is used for tracking storms and other weather phenomena.  So how about using it for finding those great big, car and house-swallowing empty spaces called, sinkholes?  Yep.  It's the latest thing coming from (of all places) NASA.
