A man and his wife were driving
their Recreational Vehicle across the country and
were nearing a town spelled Kissimee. They noted
the strange spelling and tried to figure how to
pronounce it - KISS-a-me; kis-A-me; kis-a-ME.
They grew more perplexed as they drove into the
Since they were hungry, they
pulled into a place to get something to eat. At
the counter, the man said to the waitress:
"My wife and I cant
seem to be able to figure out how to pronounce
this place. Will you tell me where we are and say
it very slowly so that I can understand."
The waitress looked at him and
said: "Buuurrrgerrr Kiiiinnnng."

How to Address Soldiers.
Numerous inquiries have been made at
the post office, says the Kansas City Times, as to how
letters to men in the army, especially the volunteer
army, should be addressed. The local authorities say that
correspondence should be directed to the place where the
regiment is in camp, stating the company and regiment of
which the man is a member, as, for example, "Henry
Jones, Company C, Third Regiment, Missouri Volunteers,
Jefferson Barracks, Mo."
The letters are first delivered at
headquarters of the camp, where they are sorted and
turned over to the adjuntants of various battalions.

I have had the privilege of
speaking to several groups since holding the
position here at artCentral and the gallery.
Yesterday I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with
the members of Alpha Delta Kappa, a nice group of
retired teachers from the community who meet
monthly. My presentation to them included some
history about the Hyde House and Katherine Hyde,
an overview of what membership with artCentral
entails, what we offer here at Hyde House to our
members including the pottery facilities and
library, rental possibilities for usage of the
house for special events, and a bit about our
annual childrens artCamp held each summer
for kids aged 7-14. The ladies bought a number of
our wonderful art-cookbooks and were very
generous to give to me a check to go towards
students attending artCamp this year. I asked
them for suggestions for additional students who
might be interested in attending camp, and
thanked them for their interest in what we are
doing here, and in the community. I hope to
create a display this week in the lobby of United
Missouri Bank, as trust officer Lora Honey Phelps
contacted me with information that the bank is
interested in displaying art in their various
facilities. I will put a group of Miss
Hydes paintings in this display as a first
offering, and hope to create some different
displays in the future. I am very happy to say we
have had wonderful response to the current
exhibition here in the gallery, as we have
welcomed folks on each day that we have been
open. I hope that you will take advantage of our
last weekend this week and visit the gallery on
Friday, Saturday or Sunday from noon until 5:00
pm. I have spent this week working on the details
for the next exhibition which will open March
27th and I think the viewers of a show called

I find it useful to lose
somethin ever now and then. Nothin
seems ta motivate gettin rid of those
things ya figure might come in handy some day
like tryin ta find somethin ya need
That pair a roller skates that
ya thought might actually be used at some point
in your life suddenly becomes a startin
place for a heap of junk.
If your really on a roll,
youll find a trunk or two thats
barely holdn together under the load of
your other "treasures" long enough to
get to the curb. Havin an empty box always
helps the motivation. Ya keep lookin for
junk to fill it with.
The worst thing is if ya find
what your lookin for too early in the day.
Now ya got a big mess and no need to continue. At
least you can still brag to how smart ya are not
to throw anything out.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Along the Wellness Path
Become amazed by whole foods
and the power they contain in providing us with
what we need to be healthy. One such whole food
is Limu Moui, a prized sea plant from the South
Pacific. In 1913, fucoidan was isolated from this
brown algae and became the subject of more than
650 scientific studies.
Fucoidan is clearly one of
natures most impressive natural compounds.
According to an expert in brown seaweed, Dr.
Kyosuke Owa, fucoidan contains the "same
type of antibodies found in human mothers
milk". Impressive research studies show that
fucoidan stimulates the production of immune
cells. Scientists have looked closely at the
lifestyles of the Tongans of the South Pacific
and discovered their predominant consumption of
this brown seaweed of which these people have
harvested and consumed for many generations,
accounting for the high incidence of healthy
But to isolate fucoidan from
this Limu Moui plant only tells us a fragment of
the whole story of what this deep sea plant
really provides. A quick breakdown of nutrients

fundamental nutrients vital for cell to cell
*seventeen amino acids which
are the building blocks within the body
