-- National Childhood Influenza Immunization Coalition Encourages Vaccination Now --
Resources & Experts Available
Recent tragic reports of childhood deaths from influenza underscore the importance of preventing this serious and sometimes deadly disease with an annual vaccination. Influenza vaccine is still available, and with influenza activity at a relatively high level across the country, now is the time for anyone who hasn’t yet gotten the vaccine to do so. This year, national health experts recommend influenza vaccination for all kids 6 months through 18 years of age and anyone in contact with infants younger than 6 months of age, who are too young to be vaccinated themselves.

Window Condensation Solutions from Glass Doctor
· Now is the time to look for condensation in windows, before the spring thaw. Spring is a good time to repair or replace windows.Condensation is a sign that your home’s windows are costing you energy and money. Condensation can occur from bad seals in a window unit or cracks between the window unit and the house frame.
· Use a simple feather test to help determine what the cause may be. Hold the feather still along the edges of the window. If the feather moves, there is probably a draft from a crack between the window frame and the home frame. If the feather does not move, but there is condensation, it could be a bad seal in the window glass.

Osteoporosis is not a normal part of aging and, in many cases, is entirely preventable.
If you're determined to protect the health of your bones, you may be taking a calcium supplement. That's definitely a step in the right direction, but recent research suggests that optimum bone health depends on a number of factors in addition to boosting calcium intake. One of those factors is vitamin D.

Timing, in all things, is everything, and that's especially so for the elegant, special-occasion dessert known as the souffle.
When done well, it emerges from the oven as a puffed-up, airy — albeit rich — confection that is sure to dazzle diners. Done poorly, it settles into a sunken mass devoid of the lighter-than-air quality of the perfect souffle.
That said, this time-honored dessert, which you might be inclined to order during a romantic dinner out but wouldn't dare attempt at home, is actually far simpler to make than you might expect.
