Post Spring Break Post

 

Yes, I know that it has been too long since I posted here.  Spring Break happened, and Savanna was out of school for 10 day.  My web page seemed to get Sandboxed by Google temporarily, thank you spammy comments.  Then, my grandfather died.

Here is a rundown of the highlights I want to share with you today.

My Workout With Tae Bo Legend, Billy Blanks

Last Saturday was the best Saturday ever in the history of Saturdays.  The perfection started with the weather that morning, which was surprisingly fantastic.  It was one of those cloudless, brilliant blue sky days that appeared after the forecast had predicted clouds and rain.  Funny how that happens around here.

Sleeping Pills Raise Risk of Dying and Cancer

Do you or any of your friends take sleeping pills?  If so, you’re in good company.  About 6-10% of Americans use sleeping pills for better snoozing, and that number is on the rise these days.

 

A recent study conducted in the United States found that those who use sleeping pills were 4.6 times more likely to die within a 2.5 year time frame.  The study estimated that sleeping pills may have been associated with 320,000 to 507,000 excess deaths in the United States alone in 2010.  Note:  This information establishes an association, not a cause, but it raises a major health concern. sleeping pills, sleeping pills and death, sleeping pills and cancer,
