Play it, Jen

Every good movie has a piano player somewhere in the background--
sometimes seen, usually unseen.
Seldom really noticed.
The feeling, the very soul of a scene, is created by that person tinkering at the keys.
It has been said, "All the world's a stage."
Well then...Play it, Jen.

I'm a California Native transplanted to the Missouri Ozarks. I've learned how to chase cows in high heels and load hay faster than you can say "Coco Chanel." These are some of our pictures and stories of living in a land with breath-taking beauty and adventure around every bend.

1 in 10 Kids May Have Fatty Livers

"Oct. 5, 2006 -- More than 6 million children in the U.S. may have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, especially those who are overweight or obese, new research shows.
That figure is an estimate based on findings from a San Diego study published in Pediatrics.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is fat in the liver without liver inflammation and liver damage.
It can worsen into nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which is fatty liver with liver inflammation and liver damage.
NASH can eventually cause permanent liver scarring (cirrhosis) and may even require a liver transplant.
In short, fat in the liver can be a slippery slope toward serious liver problems."
