Last night I remembered it's best not taking the little things forgranted, because with out them, many big things fall through. Take the time to enjoy what you have, rather than what you don't have! Amazing how a few hours w/out water got me thinking this way. I think it really happened when I had the potential of deciding on the toilet flush. (You won't get that unless you checked out the post ). Enjoy! HR
The Long Center's 2015-16 Season was celebrated during Austin Arts Block Party at the Long Center (8/23/15). Heath shares some Family Fun 411 that is happening. I'm really Excited about a show that was at the Long Center last year, and a new one is coming back. Hint: Blue is a BIG color for this show! It's so much FUN! You should go!
There is a video that was taken by Marine Biologists that has gone Worldwide viral! I know after I watched it I thought differently in the way I use and get rid of plastics, especially straws. A few days ago when my honey Ted & I were at the grocery store, there were straws in a display on sale. My honey Ted looked at them and said .. 'No!'.
Here's a bit of background on the video. Click the link below the video if you would like more 411 on it.
The Team of researchers from Texas A&M University and Indiana-Purdue University Fort Wayne had gone to Costa Rica for an in -water research trip and found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle. They initially thought what was up in its nostril to be parasitic worm. With the use of a Swiss Army knife, they proceeded to remove the object from the turtle's nasal passage, and discovered something totally different...

I've used Ovation for a short time as my shampoo/conditioner /Ovation Cell Therapy treatment as my hair care products. So far I'm liking my hair. I took it to my hair stylist Alex, and we gave Ovation the Color test. See how it does...
Last night my Honey Ted & I had a Netflix night w/ Kevin Costner's Black or White. I had run across a write up about the movie where, Kevin Costner explained that he wanted to get this movie out so badly that he didn't get paid to do it. He actually paid for it to be made and released.. produced and starred in it. This movie deals w/ the many stereo types and issues that we face today with many topics including family, death, race, human nature and more. When you have a chance I suggest you watch it and see what you think about it. It definitely made me think more after watching it.
411 on Heat Exhaustion & Heat Stroke What is heat exhaustion?
Heat exhaustion happens when your body gets too hot. It can be caused by physical exercise or hot weather. You may experience:
Feeling weak and/or confused
Dark-colored urine, which indicates dehydration
What should I do if I think I have heat exhaustion?
If you think you have heat exhaustion, get out of the heat quickly. Rest in a building that has air-conditioning. If you can't get inside, find a cool, shady place. Drink plenty of water or other fluids. Do NOT drink alcohol or caffeinated drinks (such as soda). These can make heat exhaustion worse. Take a cool shower or bath, or apply cool water to your skin. Take off any tight or unnecessary clothing.
If you do not feel better within 30 minutes, you should contact your doctor. If heat exhaustion is not treated, it can progress to heatstroke. What is heatstroke?
Heatstroke is when the internal temperature of the body reaches 104°F. It can happen when your body gets too hot during strenuous exercise or when exposed to very hot temperatures, or it can happen after heat exhaustion isn't properly treated. Heatstroke is much more serious than heat exhaustion. Heatstroke can cause damage to your organs and brain. In extreme cases, it can kill you. Symptoms of heatstroke
High fever (104°F or higher)
Dizziness and feeling light-headed
A flushed or red appearance to the skin
Lack of sweating
Muscle weakness or cramps
Feeling confused, anxious or disoriented
What should I do if I think someone has heatstroke?
If you think someone might have heatstroke, call emergency medical personnel immediately. While you are waiting for medical assistance, take the person into an air-conditioned building or a cool, shady place. Remove the person's unnecessary clothing to help cool him or her down. Try to fan air over the person while wetting the skin with water. You can also apply ice packs to the person's armpits, groin, neck and back. These areas contain a lot of blood vessels close the surface of the skin. Cooling them with ice packs can help the person cool down. Get medical help right away if you have these warning signs:
Pickathon in Oregon this past weekend is a music festival and more that celebrates music without the Big Mess many festivals leave on Mama Earth. Sustainability is a big thing here. The stage created by students is even recyclable…
"After building smaller stages at the event the previous two summers, the student-led design and construction team took on the challenge of building a 1,000-person stage this year. As part of a 10-week course that leads up to the event, the students looked at a zero-waste construction practices and ways to divert materials from landfills; after submitting different designs, they settled on stacking massive, industrial cardboard tubes, four-to-six-foot-long cylinders normally used like toilet paper rolls to hold sheet metal, to build a honeycomb-like stage. Trucked out and assembled on site, the tubes were bolted together on the ends, forming a venue that played host to performances by Ex Hex, William Tyler and more, as well as a light show. But as quick as the stage was built, it disappeared. All the material will be repurposed and reused after the festival, and even the portions of the huge rolls that were bolted together will be shredded and used as raw material to make more tubes."
A stage like this would be cool in ATX don't you think? Click here to see the stage and more 411! It's very cool!
