Saturday May 1, 2004. To the Time Dollar Store at Pillsbury House, where I bought a few things with time dollars.

Then to Painter Park, for the Lyndale Health and Activities Sampler. There were a few tables with leaflets.

To Painter Park (Lyndale and 34th), for the Lyndale Health and Activities Sampler. It turned out to be mostly a few tables with leaflets, which was disappointing.

However: there were also animals and farmyard birds on exhibit. Most were unfamiliar breeds of familiar species (example: flop-eared goats). There was also a llama.

A woman was cleaning up after goats with a pooper scooper. I was tempted to point out that
she was depriving the plants of organic fertilizer.

Mnstf meeting at Marian Turner's. She and Michael Kauper run a daycare center in Marian's house, which makes it a bit different from most of the houses Mnstf meets in. For one thing, it's more thoroughly child-proofed.

The Minicon archives are now in Marian's basement. Sharon Kahn had reason to see them, and
there was an expedition.

Minicon 1 costs 50 cents.

Small meeting; there were competing non-fan events, and at least a couple of people were at Demicon.

Good meeting.

Each year, potentially 980 lives could be saved and $11.1 billion in automobile-accident costs could be avoided if drivers who suffer from a disorder called obstructive sleep apnea were successfully treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), according to a study by researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine.

Some infants recognize, respond to social eating cues
While parents may describe their baby as a difficult eater or an overeater, a new study by University of Michigan Health System researchers suggests it could be just a sign that the child is more tuned in to the eating habits of those around him.
