Gelly Girl Got Shushed...

anneGoing Off Course - MTN's Hawaiian researcher Wiki Pedia sent us this: "Gelachter syndrome (GS) is a neuro-genetic disorder characterized by vodka...frequent laughter or smiling, and an unusually happy demeanor.

"GS is a classic example of genomic imprinting in that it is usually caused by deletion or inactivation of genes on the maternally inherited chromosome 47 while the paternal copy, which may be of normal sequence, is imprinted and therefore silenced. ....GS is named after Austrian geneticist Dr. Kichert Gelachter, who first described the syndrome in 1962....One who has GS is sometimes known as a "Gelly" because of the syndrome's name; the patient is distinguishable from non-sufferers by their remarkably youthful, happy appearance."

It would be wrong for us, as total non-doctors, to diagnose someone. BUT, were kinda-sorta convinced that triathlete / chronic smiler / terminally happy Anne Hartman has Gelachter syndrome....

Body odor tops the list as one of the most embarrassing public discussions. Most people are embarrassed to talk about body odor because they don't want to admit they have it.

Others don't want to admit they smell body odor on someone else. This article is designed so that you don't have to discuss your body odor, just read about ways to prevent it. There are several steps you can take to severely reduce or completely rid yourself of your body odor problems.


You have probably heard it preached over and over again to drink 6-8 glasses of water. This not only improves your overall health, but also your body odor. The more water you drink, the more apocrine sweat..

shipGoing Off Course - Building model ships is one of Steve Paladie's passions. The 68-year-old triathlete / nordic skier / retired guy / Juicy Lucy and Papa Murphy's "Cowboy" lovin' Bloomington resident who claims that he's actually from Eden Prairie 'cuz EP is a more prestigious place, DID NOT build the model ship that is pictured here. We don't have photos of the ships he has built, but we can say with relative certainty that the model ships Steve has built are every bit as intricate and cool-looking as the one you see here.

How do we know, you ask?

Because Steve is a VERY smart guy who is good at stuff. If he does something, you can be sure that he did it real good.

What else do we know about Steve?...
