Fresh air and sunshine are good for your soul.

Fresh air and sunshine are good for your soul.

I’m not sure where I came across the saying #outsideisfree, but I like it. On trips up the turnpike to Kansas City, I typically stop at the Bazaar Cattle Crossing to take a photo looking south. The higher elevation of the stop is a perfect place to view the Flint Hills. It’s amazing how every trip to the spot is different than the previous time through, even if it was just a few hours. On social media, I use the tags #mostscenicspotonearth #Kanzaprairie and #outsideisfree, which all pretty much describe the spot.

How cheap is it to feed the family from the garden?

How cheap is it to feed the family from the garden?

Who doesn’t remember Jack LaLane, commonly referred to as the Godfather of Fitness? I remember watching him on TV years ago, showing us how workout in our homes. It seems that Jack was a pioneer of incorporating nutrition into fitness and informing the general public of how eating a proper diet could change your life. Well, you should meet my friend Matt Smith. He’s what I’d call the Godfather of Fitness Today. An avid cyclist, Matt rides single speed bikes, or bikes with only 1 gear. A fitness fanatic, he also uses sledge hammers from estate sales for his workouts. Oh, and he's a health nut, as he eats mostly non-processed food.

I'm with Phil. (He promised an early spring.)

I'm with Phil. (He promised an early spring.)

With the great temperatures we are experiencing this week, I’ll go out on a limb and say that spring has sprung. Something I learned last week while on the mid- day news at KAKE TV, is that March 1st is the “meteorological” first day of spring. In the back of my mind, I have always felt that the four seasons seem to start about a month or so earlier than the official changing of the seasons.

Growing them cold, because that's how we roll.

Growing them cold, because that's how we roll.

It takes the Earth about 365.242189 days — or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds — to circle once around the sun; roughly, it takes one year. If we don’t add an extra day every 4 years, we would lose about 6 hours every year, or in a century we’d be off by about 24 days.
