It seems like Almost Yesterday that the circus came to De Soto, Missouri. In the days before television, color movies, and modern entertainment options, a high light for every community was when “the circus” came to town. Colorful costumes, trapeze artists, beautiful ladies, wild animals, and entertaining clowns — provided an escape from the hard w…
 
It is not true, as the humor website Cracked satirically suggests, that oatmeal was invented by a research scientist at Britain's Royal Academy of Adhesives and Sealants during an experiment in search of new forms of industrial glue. But if your idea of oatmeal is the pasty variety made in a microwave from a packet, the story can seem plausible. In…
 
In these cold winter months, the trick is to stay active and warm! There are many options here in Cape Girardeau.

January 31 - February 6 Discover nature this week as you witness male American goldfinches molt into their bright breeding plumage. In nature, there are beauties and there are annoyances.

Can you believe we’re still discovering what’s going on inside our heads? The glymphatic system is a recently discovered macroscopic waste clearance system in the brain. According to the authors of an article in Neurochemical Research , the glymphatic system functions mainly during sleep and is largely disengaged during wakefulness. The biological …
 
It seems like Almost Yesterday that a new musical sound came up the Mississippi from the south. It moved north with the orchestras of the river excursion boats. Thus, Cape Girardeau was among the first communities in the nation to receive this new music. Almost all large cities on the inland waterways had excursion boats that remained in the commun…
 
Ever been in a sticky situation? We all have. But probably none as sticky as the Great Molasses Flood, sometimes called the Molasses Massacre, which hit Boston in 1919. The tragedy occurred when over 2 million gallons of molasses stored in a 50-foot tall tank at the Purity Distilling Company burst forth, when the temperature rose from below zero on…
 
There are many significant Civil Rights figures, but few are as recognized as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the work he did reshaping America’s culture.

The Encyclopedia of Global Health states, “While it is impossible to avoid all illnesses, there are many forms of preventive care that reduce health risks by improving individual health.” What preventive care do you need to have this year? It depends on your age as well as your risk factors. Some recent studies have suggested that perhaps the annua…
 
It seems like Almost Yesterday that the movie, “The Gangs of New York” shocked American audiences with its graphic portrayal of New York City in the middle of the nineteenth century. Martin Scorsese’s 2002 production is a shockingly violent account of the gangland struggle for the territorial control of lower Manhattan. The film grossed over two hu…

What’s the most dangerous cake in the world? Some say wedding cake, but a better answer, I think, is mug cake. A mug cake is a single serving of cake made by quickly stirring up batter in a mug and nuking it in the microwave. It apparently came to widespread public attention in a YouTube video back in 2009. The publisher of the video said she got t…
 
It’s time to gaze into the future and see what 2020 will bring in the business world. I wish I had a crystal ball to tell you what to expect in the coming year, but I do not.

Author Brianna Weist recently wrote, “True self-care is not salt baths and chocolate cake, it is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from.” Self-care CAN be salt baths and chocolate cake, but it is not just the now oft-touted reason for indulging yourself. True self-care involves some components that are not necessa…
 
It seems like Almost Yesterday that the territory Americans know as Texas began – from its origins in Southeast Missouri.

Welcome to the twenties! They are back in full swing, and I bet your resolutions are, too.

Cape Girardeau is an exceptionally supportive community. If your goal i…
 
Recently the leader of the choir in a small church learned firsthand how much difference one letter in a word can make when he spotted in the church bulletin this notice: "The choir director invites any members of the congregation who enjoy sinning to join the choir." In the culinary world one letter can also make a big difference. Take, for exampl…

At Christmastime, Jack Frost nipping at your nose sounds cute. When you are shoveling snow in January, you worry about meeting his ugly cousin, frostbite. While hypothermia, the lowering of core body temperature, is deadly, frostbite---freezing of the skin and underlying tissues--- can cause permanent tissue damage, as well as lead to amputation an…
 
It seems like Almost Yesterday that the Roberts, Johnson and Rand Shoe Company of St. Louis opened a manufacturing plant in Cape Girardeau . The date was September 9, 1907 and this proved to be a significant development in the economic growth of the city. In 1900 Cape Girardeau was a small community of fewer than 5000 residents. But it was eager to…
 
Benjamin Franklin said, “Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” Can you believe the new year is around the corner?

Every culture feeds on the belief that eating certain dishes on New Years Day brings good fortune. Perhaps the Chinese have the most New Years food rituals. They take two weeks to ring in the new year and during that time literally everything eaten is considered auspicious. Having first domesticated the pig the Chinese consider pork to be a lucky f…
 
2019 was a dynamic year for change and development. Can’t believe it is almost 2020. The national economy is strong and the state of Missouri is set to welcome the medical marijuana business. We are living through an impeachment process as the federal government has had an interesting year. So, let’s look locally. Many local companies either added …
 
January 3 - January 9 Discover Nature this week as you watch for red-tailed hawks perched along highways, and consider what their presence says about other resident wildlife.

Watching the ball drop in Times Square, singing “Old Lang Syne” and toasting with champagne are traditional ways of celebrating the new year. However, for some, the holiday provides what seems like a socially acceptable reason to overindulge in alcohol. The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States notes that a quarter of the $49-billion-a-yea…
 
It seems like almost yesterday that “the Father of American Physical culture” was born. He was the predecessor of Charles Atlas and a number of individuals who emphasized body building and nutrition as the keys to long and healthy life. Bernarr Macfadden was born on August 16, 1868 in the small community of Mill Spring, in Wayne County, Missouri. A…
 
On Christmas Eve not even mice will be stirring, stockings will be carefully hung by chimneys, and children will be snugly nestled in their beds. Moreover, dancing in their heads will be visions of sugar plums. I must've read the poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas" hundreds of times - I even had to memorize it for a school play when I was in the first…
 
The holidays will hit their peak this week and families throughout the world will celebrate the joys of giving and receiving gifts.

Found across the Eastern and Midwest portion of the United States, the blue jay is a native Missouri songbird.

Over seventy-five years ago Irving Berlin wrote what has become the most recorded song of all time: "White Christmas." It’s easy to understand how Berlin, born in a town near Siberia, could feel nostalgic about a winter snowfall. Even those of us who grew up in temperate climates typically long for a white Christmas. I know I do. In my case, howeve…
 
My word! It looks like a certain someone has left candy canes all over Shawnee Park!
