Songwriting Course

I'm thinking about giving my daughter this songwriting course by Harriet Schock.

She loves music, and loves to sing. She's written some songs, and they are really good, but I think taking a songwriting course would really help her achieve her goals as a songwriter.

Welcome to the real drug war. And the front line may be as near as your medicine cabinet.

A new study by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse finds that the number of Americans who abuse prescription drugs nearly doubled in just over a decade — from 7.8 million in 1992 to 15.1 million in 2003. That more recent figure exceeds the number of Americans estimated to be abusing cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants and heroin — combined.

You might be shocked to hear that. But something tells me that Tom Cruise isn't so surprised. You'll recall that the movie star recently got into a rhetorical shoving match with, well, just about everyone over whether prescription drugs should be used to treat mental illness.

Read the full commentary: Psychiatric Drug Addiction - Tom Cruise is probably not surprised

Diabetes Cure

I am expecting our 7th baby! We are very excited about this. Unfortunately, I failed the one-hour glucose tolerance test and need to be re-tested with the 3-hour test, for gestational diabetes.

In search for a diabetes cure, I have found lots of things to reduce symptoms - but no cure for Diabetes.

I think the best thing I can do to cure my diabetes, per the news stories I have seen, is exercise. Then good nutrition - a good diet for people with diabetes is of course a necessity. Then I found these nutritional supplements for diabetes that look good. I've been taking them - I'll see if these reduce my diabetes risk.

That's what I have found for a diabetes cure.
