Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

 

Tennessee Hospital Will Not Charge Tornado Victims

Cookeville Regional Medical Center will not be charging patients for medical care resulting from last week’s deadly tornados. Insurance companies will be billed, but not the patients.  “If they don’t have insurance, they will not be charged.”

Here’s more of the story from ABC News. 

Meals for Event Spectators Sent to Nashville First Responders

Meals prepared for a bodybuilding show in Ohio where donated to first responders in Nashville. Meals had been prepared for 200,000 people, but the show was prohibited from allowing general public spectators in order to contain the coronavirus, so they decided send the food to Nashville in refrigerator trucks. Here are the details. 

 

Palm Oil Alternative

Bill Gates has invested in a company producing an alternative to palm oil to help reduce deforestation. C16 Biosciences uses a fermentation process to make the product. Here’s more on the palm oil alternative. 

Sustainable Oats

“Research has shown that oats crops are far more sustainable than the production of coconut, almond, or rice milk.”  GNN

Hälsa Foods, a Swedish company based in Florida, uses oats as a dairy substitute for their organic yogurt. They’re offering help to small, struggling dairy farmers who want to convert their pastures to oat crops.   Read more from the Good News Network.  

Our Mountain Weekend

In personal good news, we spent the weekend in the mountains and took  care of my granddaughter and grand dog for an overnight. We also got to spend time with my son and daughter-in-law, and we even got to see snow! David loved walking grand dog  “Rumpke” whose name was inspired by the band, Rumpke Mountain Boys.

Plus, I got to swim at the Y, and my granddaughter learned to float on her back, swam under the pool rope, and did a cannonball!
