I’ve collected quite a few recipes that you throw together in the slow cooker, but none for pizza…until today. This recipe is not one you can leave cooking all day but nonetheless you can make it is a slow cooker – which should make some college dorm dwellers who own a crock pot but no stove – happy campers. Maybe even something you could plug up in the office at work. How is it possible to cook a crispy crust pizza in a slow cooker – well most of them have a ceramic base and that is what keeps the crust crispy while the pizza cooks. Click here for the recipe:

Even healthy people need a flu vaccine.
Influenza (flu) is a contagious disease which affects the lungs and can lead to serious illness, including pneumonia. Even healthy people can get sick enough to miss work or school for a significant amount of time or even be hospitalized. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older.
Pregnant women, young children, older people, and people with certain chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes and heart disease are at increased risk of serious flu-related complications, so getting a yearly flu vaccine is especially important for them.
Is the flu vaccine safe?
Yes. The flu vaccine is safe. They have been given to hundreds of millions of people for more than 50 years and have a very good safety track record. Each year, CDC works closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and other partners to ensure the highest safety standards for flu vaccines
Can’t I wait and get vaccinated when/if flu hits my community?
It is best to get vaccinated before flu begins to spread. It takes about two weeks for the flu vaccine to provide full protection, so the sooner you get vaccinated, the more likely it is that you will be fully protected once flu begins to circulate in your community.
You need to get a flu vaccine every year.
You need to get a flu vaccine every year to protect yourself against the viruses that research suggests are most likely to circulate each season. There are two reasons for getting a flu vaccine every year:
1. The first reason is that because flu viruses are constantly changing, flu vaccines
may be updated from one season to the next to protect against the viruses
research indicates may be most common during the upcoming flu season.
2. The second reason that annual vaccination is recommended is that a person’s
immune protection from the vaccine declines over time. Annual vaccination is
needed for optimal protection.

The bullying statistics are staggering, with more than 80% of high school students in the U.S. reporting that they witness bullying at least once a week. Statistics also show that more than 1 in 4 children a year (13 million) experience some form of bullying (as the bully, bullied or both). Parents, unfortunately, are often not properly prepared to deal with the complexities of bullying today. Bullying is a concern for parents, but not something they proactively discuss with their children until it directly impacts their child. However, research shows that when parents talk to their kids about bullying, their children are more likely to take action to stop bullying.
Kids witness bullying every day. They want to help, but they don’t know how. There are safe, simple ways your child can help stop bullying. Teach your kids the 5 bystander tips:
1. Tell a trusted adult, like a family member, teacher or coach.
2. Help the person being bullied get away from the situation.
3. Be a friend to the person being bullied.
4. Set a good example. Do not bully others.
5. Don’t give bullying an audience.
