Good Afternoon.
I'm Keith Humphry filling in for Jean Jadhon. We'll have that parade story in a moment but first:
A Richmond-area woman and her two children have been found dead in their Colonial Heights home.
Twenty-seven year old Rhonda Bush was found dead in her bed late yesterday.
The body of two-year old Sonny was on the floor; 1-year old Billy was dead in his crib. The boys apparently died of dehydration sometime after their mother died.
Chesterield County authorities are treating the mother's death as a homicide, for now.
The boys' father died last year in a motorcycle accident.

A federal appeals court in Richmond has set a hearing for next March on the challenge to Virginia's new parental notification abortion law. The hearing is to decide whether the law stays in effect while the lawsuit brought against it by Planned Parenthood works its way through the courts. Planned Parenthood contends the notification law is unconstitutional. It took effect July first and says a judge MAY waive the notification requirement if he finds that the girl is mature enough. Other state parental notification laws say the judge SHALL grant the waiver if he finds the girl is mature.

Gaining weight over the holidays is as American a past-time as Apple Pie and "pass the gravy...." And that's exactly how we do it.

But experts say with a little preparation, you can make it through Thanksgiving and into the New Year without the add ons.

A dietician in Waco, Texas, has suggestions.
Stephanie Taylor has a list of the top ten foods guaranteed to help you gain
weight over the holidays---they include alcohol, egg nog, nuts, pecan pie,

candy such as chocolate covered cherries and toffee, cheese balls, cheese popcorn, snack mixes and chips and dips.

SS=Holiday Eating

Of course the list includes many holiday favorites and Taylor says it's not realistic to expect that we can stay away from all of them. The key, she says, is moderation.
In other words, skip the second helping and don't overindulge.
Another suggestion is to eat lower-fat items at other meals, to balance out the time when you're eating heavier.
And don't forget to exercise.

IT'S DEFINITELY A GREAT LOWER BODY WORKOUT IN TERMS OF YOUR THIGHS, GLUTES AND YOUR UPPER ARM STRENGTH WHEN YOU GET MORE INTO THE ACROBATICS.

Based on traditional African rituals, the weapon was used by many runaways. It wasn't until the 1930's that it became legal to teach and practice it. Today hundreds of schools exist worldwide. The "Game" of Capoeira is played in a circle, called a roda (pronounced HOR-DA). This is when you get a chance to face your challenger.
