I've called oatmeal a lot of things in my life, but "yummy" wasn't one of them, until the last year or so.

It seems we're always looking for the new great thing that's going to get us fit, shed the pounds, and motivate us. Many of us put in a half-hearted effort of working out, decide that those particular exercises don't work, but wait... what's that? Jennifer Aniston uses what? Well, then! That's my ticket too!
It’s not every night that you get to take part in mass sing-alongs to Disney songs and witness public swapping of clothes between male and females in front of a crowd in the Miners' Hall, but this weekend--for the third time--one of Rossland’s most fun annual fundraising events will once again provide just that mix. And more.
