Even though it sometimes seems that March is the last month you need to survive before warmer weather starts, the month does bring a lot of important health-related observances. With these reminders from USA.gov, you can make March a healthy month:
(ARA) - Every garden is filled with them: millions of unseen weeds. They are dormant seeds that lurk just below the soil surface, ready to spring to life with just the briefest exposure to light.

Even better for today's cost-conscious consumers is that many of the trends are easy and inexpensive.

There's really no question in my mind that computers are smarter than we are. Well, perhaps I should speak only for myself. My computer is smarter than me. And just when I think I have it figured out, something else changes and the learning curve starts all over again.
Dear Editor,March 11-17, 2012 is National Groundwater Awareness Week. Over 90 percent of all public drinking water systems rely on groundwater to supply the population with drinking water. Many residents in the Oakdale area have a private well that supplies their water. Getting an annual water well check up is like checking your furnace or smoke detector batteries seasonally. It's a smart thing to do. As a member of the National Ground Water Association, I encourage well owners to get their wells checked during Groundwater Awareness Week.An annual checkup by a certified or licensed water well contractor ...
