Warm weather is here! And if your wardrobe isn't quite ready, there's a perfect one-stop-spot for all your family's clothing needs at prices that will save your wallet a TON!

The Outlets at Sparks inside the Legends at Sparks Marina, offers name brands at BIG discounts - like Ann Taylor and Gap - both offering up to 70% off their entire stores!

Thanks to our guest from Renown, Mary Ann Brown, for discussing these usually heavy topics with us...Advance Directives and Palliative Care.

Both are important to have for good reason, and no better time than to responsibly take care of it now so your loved ones aren't left guessing what yoru wishes are!

To clarify:

Advance Directive is "decide in advance what medical treatment you want to receive in the event you become physically or mentally unable to communicate your wishes."

Palliative Care is specialized medical care for patients with advanced stages of cancer and other serious illnesses....not to be confused with hospice care, [which] is meant specifically for those approaching the last stages of life, while palliative care is appropriate for any stage of a serious illness."

Listen to our interview for great ideas on how to start the conversation with your family members. Or visit the links below ...

Thanks again to the wonderful kids and leaders of the African Children's Choir for sharing their beautiful voices with us!

These kids from Uganda were so kind, polite, and incredibly smart! They told me all about the books  they were busy reading on their trip here to the U.S. - some  Dr. Seuss, lots of "Curious George" books, and one girl just finished reading "The Giving Tree"!

So excited to have them here, and you can enjoy their wonderful harmony TONIGHT at J.A. Nugget at 7pm! Great way to kick off Artown 2014!

Click the "Play" Button just below the pictures to listen to their performance, then click HERE to get more info and tickets!


Truly impressed,

Stay Healthy my friends!
