Meriwether Lewis' 234th Birthday

This day I completed my thirty-first year. I reflected that I had as yet done but little, very
little indeed, to further the happiness of the human race, or to advance the information
of the succeeding generation. I viewed with regret the many hours I have spent in indolence,
and now sorely feel the want of that information which those hours would have given me
had they been judiciously expended.

- Meriwether Lewis, August 1805, six days after becoming the first American
to cross the Continental Divide.

(18 Aug 1774 - 11 Oct 1809)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   If today's Newsletter seems strangely familiar to you, it's because we just celebrated William Clark's birthday less than three weeks ago:





  From David Rosenwasser ('64) of MO - 08/01/08 - "RE: William Clark's 238th Birthday":

With the birthday notice of William Clark, I would be remiss and/or fired for not trying to put a plug in for my city, Saint Charles, Missouri, the point of departure for Lewis and Clark.  We have a wonderful Boathouse and Museum in their honor. 
In the spring time we have a Lewis and Clark Heritage Days Festival with parade and all that goes with it.  In the ground space of the boathouse resides the various craft which were used to re-enact the great discovery voyage 204 years ago. We celebrate both gentlemen everyday with a fabulous statue and many other attractions that honor both. 
Thanks for allowing me to push a little tourism.
David Rosenwasser

   Oh, absolutely! In fact, I was thinking of you when I was creating that Newsletter! We'll be back with more on this theme for Meriwether Lewis' birthday on August 18!

   Thanks so much, David - I do miss the St. Louis /St. Charles area! Y'all go see it when you can!,_Missouri

From TripleCrown Newsletters - 08/13/08 - "Eat For Stress Relief - 5 Foods to Calm You Down":

Eat For Stress Relief - 5 Foods to Calm You Down

- Julia Denham

If you're jittery bundle of nerves, start eating for stress relief. The following five foods will calm you down and make you feel fit enough to handle whatever life can throw at you.

1. Avocados Lower Your Blood Pressure

Stress is a great excuse to indulge in creamy guacamole. Not only will you get instant stress relief from this green marvel, you'll also do your heart good. Avocado contains both monounsaturated fat, and potassium, which can lower your blood pressure.

2. Oats, Your Serotonin Enhancer

Just like your mother told you, porridge is good for you. Oats contain carbohydrates which are absorbed slowly, and this enhances the serotonin-producing abilities of your brain. Serotonin is your body's own stress-relieving chemical.

So if you know you'll have a busy, high-pressure day, take a few moments to eat a bowl of porridge or muesli before you leave the house.

3. Oranges - Fast Stress Relief

Oranges for stress relief, who knew? It turns out that vitamin C relieves stress by returning your blood pressure and levels of cortisol (a chemical produced by the body when you're under stress) to normal quickly.

4. Salmon Keeps Cortisol and Adrenaline in Check

Salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, and they keep cortisol and adrenaline (another chemical your body produces when you're under stress) in check.

If you hate fish, you can buy capsules of omega-3, but fresh salmon is better for you.

5. Skim Milk, Calms You and Relieves PMS

Do you turn into a fire-breathing dragon at that time of the month? Skim milk not only calms you down at any time, but it's especially useful when you're suffering the irritability and mood swings of PMS.

Here's an added tip: if your stress is giving you insomnia, a glass of skim milk will help sooth you to sleep.

Everyone suffers from stress. The above five foods will not only help you to manage stress, but will also improve your general health, so that you're calm and serene, even in the midst of the chaos of your life.
