Restful Sleep Suggestions 

A lot of people complain about sleep or really the lack of it. A few suggestions are stop all caffenine at 2 pm, consider melatonin, take a walk about an hour before bed, take warm shower or better yet, warm bath, and put a small note book with by bed. When those things you need to handle tomorrow - just must not forget- keep popping in your head, write them down - then let your mind forget them. They are written down. If you are a pot of coffee a day person, consider cutting it down to 1/2 a pot. Hopefully, this will help.

Autism Show 

We watched the Dr. Oz show on autism. It was very informative and shared many different viewpoints. Also provided resources for more information. I tried to pull it up on Dr. Oz and was not successful, however I did Google What Causes Autism Pt 1 and it came up that way. It also allows you to view all parts of the show.

Dr. Oz also recently did a show on organic produce with a guide of what to eat in season, it is on a chart. I know our Farmer's Market should be opening downtown on Main Street, March 25. Hours are Saturday 8am to 1 pm at corner of Main and NW 2nd. Plans right now are for Saturday only.

We are picking small onions, collards, and fresh spinach as well as chives. We just planted carrots and radishes. The rest will have to wait until after April 1. We do have potatoes planted. Remember to continue to cover during cold weather.

If you find getting your refills inconvenient, let us help you get your prescriptions close to home.
