Holiday food bloopers

By Jamie Rathbun
Extension Focus

Our family regularly checks out movies from the local library. We watch the movie and then comes everyone’s favorite part — the deleted scenes and bloopers.

Is the flu vaccine a good idea?

By Jamie Rathbun
Extension Focus

My oldest daughter was born in September, so at her annual well check each fall, I bring the entire family. I use this time, not just for her check-up, but to have each one of us receive our flu vaccine.
