Tips to keep your baby sun-safe

Wide-brimmed hats and long sleeve shirts can help protect infants from the sun on warm summer days.

Spending time outdoors is a summertime tradition for people of all ages. Sunny summer afternoons may be especially cherished in 2020, when people across the globe have been forced to spend more time indoors as they adhere to social distancing guidelines implemented to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Parents of infants may be extra excited to get outdoors this summer. Chances to get out and about don’t come around very often for parents of infants, and those chances may be even more rare as social distancing guidelines remain in place. But before parents rush out the door to soak up some summer sun, it’s imperative that they take steps to protect their tiny tots from UV rays.

I thought when I turned 50 it was such a big deal. When I turned 60, it was still a big deal, but preferred to slide into it quietly.

Well last Friday we were able to help Larry McLain celebrate his 90 th birthday. Big deal? Heck yes it is! Did we sing, yep. Did we hoop and holler, of course. Did we social distance from the man that is famous for his hugs n smooches? We tried really hard.

How to be safe in the sun

A relaxing day outdoors soaking up some of the sun’s rays is how many people prefer to spend their free time when the weather allows. While the very vision of a warm summer afternoon spent outdoors can invoke positive feelings, it’s important that people take protective measures before going outside and continue to do so while they’re out there.

According to the American Cancer Society, most skin cancers are the result of exposure to ultraviolet rays in sunlight. UV rays are a type of radiation that do not have enough energy to penetrate deeply into the body. As a result, they primarily affect the skin. Overexposure to these rays can lead to skin cancer.

Allergies or COVID-19? How to tell

As winter gave way to spring, nature did not give any signs in relation to what the people of the world were going through. As trees and flowers bloomed just like they do every spring, the people accustomed to witnessing the awe-inspiring transformation on display each spring were experiencing a transformation of their own.

Social distancing measures enacted during the COVID-19 outbreak in latewinter 2020 forced many people to stay home, only venturing outside to run routine errands like buying groceries or filling prescriptions. People were urged to stay home to help prevent the COVID-19 virus from spreading, and those recommendations included people exhibiting mild symptoms of illness.

How the foods you eat might help fight cancer

Many people are familiar with certain ways to reduce their risk for cancer. Avoiding tobacco, which the National Cancer Institute notes is a leading cause of cancer and death from cancer, and protecting oneself from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays by applying sunscreen are two of the most widely known ways to reduce cancer risk. But fewer people may recognize the important role diet can play in fighting cancer.

The Senior Center now has a mascot, or two. It’s perfect; the two dinosaurs we had visit us on Friday. Think about it before you judge. Dinos are old, slow going, but very social. I imagine their sound is a bit like when I try and get up off the floor. Oh please don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about on this one.

They spent much of their day like we do: eat, sleep, repeat. No one really knows what color they were, similar to a lot of our hair. They loved plants, we love Norma’s salads. There is no proof they had ears, ours are becoming useless. Their eyesight was bad, ditto. See what I mean now? Makes perfect sense, huh?
