How to Fire Up Your Metabolism
There are a few factors that determine the efficiency of your metabolism. Genetics is one as some of us are simply born with a slower or faster metabolism. Age is another. As we age, our metabolic rate naturally drops and we just don't break down foods as efficiently. Research has shown that after age 30, the average woman as a weight gain of about 5-7% per year from this drop. We can also slow our metabolism down simply by being unhealthy and not exercising or eating poorly.
The good news is, we have the ability to fix this! People turn to dieting for losing weight, but I believe that fixing your metabolism is the key factor. So how do you do this?
Spring Turkey 101
With spring just around the corner, many hunters are looking forward to one of the most exciting seasons in Central Texas…spring turkey season. Unfortunately, less than half of those hunters will bag a spring turkey. Their failed efforts will certainly not be due to lack of enthusiasm, but rather, lack of technique and patience.
After successfully hunting turkeys for 25 years in five states, I am convinced the single most important factor is the setup location of your hunt. Calling, while important, is only about 25% of a successful hunt. Throw in a tremendous amount of patience (sitting still is harder than it looks!) and a little luck and your turkey hunt is headed for success.

Educational Notes - A time for farewell
I cannot believe I am writing this article now. But, here it is. The time has come for me to say farewell to Brownwood. My family and I will be relocating to Galveston, where I will be working with teachers and students and technology.
I know this move is a good one for us, but I have been exasperating my husband as I alternate between smiles and tears. I have made many friends here in Brownwood, and I will also be leaving some family behind. But as we move on into the next chapter of our lives, I know it will be all the better for having spent the time here.
I want to take a moment to thank all the students, the parents, teachers, and administrators that I have had the opportunity to work with. You have made this experience one to be remembered and cherished. I have learned so much from all of you, I only hope that others have learned from me, as well.
