~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Part of my job as a public-health nurse is teaching new parents how to care for their infants.
As I was demonstrating how to wrap a newborn, a young Asian couple turned to me and said, "You mean we should wrap the baby like an egg roll?"
Yes, I replied, that was a good analogy.

Patagonia Dragonfly Jacket
Lighter and more durable than other jacket in the recent wave of featherweight outerwear, the Dragonfly ($135) blocks wind completely, resists water pretty well, and compresses to the size of an orange. It sports a hood, a half-length zipper, and a chest pocket yet weighs just three ounces - light enough to take anywhere, anytime.
