Students who show livestock spend countless hours of hard work, preparation and money on their animals. For decades the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) has provided a platform for students to compete in the biggest show in Texas where they could have a chance to earn prize money, scholarships, and possibly have their animal auctioned.

I’ve learned from experience that one of the first signs of crossing over into old age is a forced preoccupation with expiration dates. And I don’t mean yours or mine – I’m talking about the dates on what’s in the fridge or medicine cabinet! You know – sell buy, use by or best by?

In this age when you can search and surf to find every sort of weird imaginable thing on the interweb, a new layer of weird has surfaced. This time, it is the face mask. The masks have come out to prevent the spread of virus. And they have transformed our society from a friendly, smiling, “Good morning, how are you?” type of existence into an unrecognizable and expressionless set of eyeballs that look at you with a suspicion that you are about to infect the world. The masked masses have created the closest thing to a zombie invasion that I hope to ever experience.

You hear it all the time during flu season: wash your hands to prevent the spread of flu. You may have heard advice encouraging you to do the same to stop the spread of COVID-19, but do you know why this simple practice works so effectively? Washing your hands with soap and water breaks up the molecules of the virus and washes them away, preventing the virus from infecting you or others.

By now it’s safe to say that I have survived the first few weeks of not only “social distancing” but Daylight Savings Time. When I say “survive,” I mean I haven’t missed any meetings, real or virtual, thanks to my alarm clock, but my attitude has been less than perky because I start my day off tired. Frankly, I don’t care how much daylight we have in the evening, I resent this interruption of my circadian rhythm. To make it work, you have to adjust your bedtime schedule, and by the time that is accomplished, it’s time to “fall back.”
