You make me feel like dancin’, I wanna dance the night away! Yippee! Valentine’s Day has come and gone, the sun is shining, can Spring be far behind? Not to mention, March Madness is just a couple of weeks away and then…..Baseball!!!!!!
Do you have an healthy heart? Do you like to move to the music? Well, Primrose School is holding nationwide Family Dance Off that anyone can enter. Primrose is based right here in Franklin and I talked to VP of Early Education Dr. Mary Zurn about how to motivate your kids to get some exercise. She has some great tips for working out family-style. Primrose’s contest is on now and families can submit videos of themselves dancing. Voting takes place online, and the winning family will raise some serious money for their fave local children’s hospital. Here in Nashville, Monroe Carrell Children’s Hospital will be the winning hospital. Check out Dr. Zurn’s interview to learn how you can enter, wherever you are in the country!
And, check out Dr. Zurn’s website for more parenting tips. Dr. Z & Friends
Tax season is also upon us and if you own a small business or file your own returns, it can get pretty dicey year to year to keep track of the changes to the tax law. But, there is help available and using a trusted tax preparer can actually save you in the long run. I talked to my friend Gail Childress, tax manager for Flood, Bumstead, Mcready & McCarthy about what’s new for the 2010 tax year. She’s great at explaining difficult and confusing details without making me feel dumb! And when it comes to numbers, that’s how I frequently feel (just ask my husband about my checkbook!) Listen to Gail’s great tips and information and if you still have questions, run to the nearest accountant!
That’s about it for this week. I hope you all enjoy a nice, relaxing President’s Day weekend. I heard the groundhog did not see his shadow, so I’m expecting an early Spring. Keep watching this blog for some great happenings and events coming up in Middle Tennessee. We have tons of talent and culture here! Cheers everyone!
