I read an article recently about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how six million children have been diagnosed with this condition and one million of those six million have also been classified as having Sluggish Cognitive Tempo or SCT (two million children).They report lethargy, day dreaming, and slow mental processing.

My husband came home one day (a couple of years ago) after picking up a few items at a local home improvement warehouse store. He shared with me that he was roaming around the store looking for the things on his list and while he was loading some merchandise onto his cart, a man approached him and without even asking if my husband worked there, just began rattling off a list of questions like: "where would the needle-nosed pliers be", and such.

Well, traditional wisdom and logic would lead us to reason that daylight-saving time, which begins March 9th, does reduce energy consumption. But an exceptional situation in Indiana provides evidence challenging that view....."springing forward" may actually cause an increased use of energy!

Okay folks, I still write checks and use cash.....I do very little online, so I'm not about to put my healthcare information on there! I'm usually one to try new things and think of myself as quite progressive, but I'm just not comfortable with the Google option of Health records on the Web. It's going to take alot of prodding for this consumer to store my data in portable electronic files!

YouTube service was disrupted on 2/24/08....this apparently was an effort by a foreign government to block access to some video clips they did not agree with. The government's telecommunications authority regulator of that nation's telecom, ordered the internet service providers to block access to a SPECIFIC YouTube video. But in a bizarre twist, the government's efforts to block the clip wound up affecting YouTube users world-wide.

What will they think of next? Some magazines are going to try out this strategy for marketing consumable products. Welch's is apparently going to take out full page ads in People's Magazine this month so readers can sample it's grape juice by licking the page! Whoa...that's just plain icky!
