"Where are my shoes? These are not my shoes. These are slippers. Where are my shoes? These are not my shoes. These are snow boots. Where are my shoes? Here are my shoes! I am glad I found my shoes. I love my shoes. " Our family has often repeated those lines from a childhood storybook. Each time someone forgets where they placed their shoes, someone else will start in with "Where are my shoes?" Family bonding is one of the benefits of reading to children at an early age. There is something that happens between parent and child when the same books are read over and over again.

Big Slackwater Oct. 13 - Images of the old Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, which had faded with time, were resurrected in 2012. The 2.7-mile section of the towpath known as Big Slackwater was closed after flooding in 1996 and it deteriorated into a treacherous ridge overrun with brambles, thistles and poisonous plants. Towpath visitors were detoured off the trail and onto a dangerous route with no shoulders following 4.5 miles along Dam 4, Dellinger and Avis Mill roads. Two years ago, the National Park Service determined that during a five-year period, there were 35 accidents along the detour that resulted in someone being taken to a hospital.

If the close-up shot of the model's bare legs and violet, bikini- covered bottom didn't project the marketing message, the text on the full-color Reebok magazine ad made it clear: "EasyTone shoes help tone your butt and legs with every step.

This seductive thought has spurred record sales for the shoe companies making these claims.
