The Heart Truth- Red Dress

Go deeper than the pink, go red. Go deeper than the breast, go to the heart.

Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of women in the USA. Eat right, exercise, get enough sleep, and cultivate social relationships (make friends!); these will help save your heart. I know because I have CAD, coronary artery disease.

MAD stands for Music Art and Drama. And texas (no capital is on purpose) is considering a bill that would drop the ONE fine arts requirement for high school students. In four years students had to take one class: music, art or drama. If this passes they won't take any. And the arts will die in texas.

Of course, we'll still have sports. And a morning pledge to a state flag. And state mandated testing.

But no arts. No outlet for creativity. No alternative thinking for creative problem solving.

Hail Europe!

That is sad news. My granddaughters are active in music and drama. They participate in school chorus, drama, band and local theater plays. I have posted some of there youtube videos in "The Fun Room" sidebar of things they have performed in and one of the videos is of them just fooling around in their family room. I hope things get straighten out in Texas, it would be a shame for the young ones not to be involved in Music, Art and Drama!
