“Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.” ~ President Theodore Roosevelt
Sports drinks were first created in the 1960s. Gatorade, for example, was developed by researchers at the University of Florida to help athletes replace water lost as a result of exercise and exposure to heat and humidity. The product included water, small amounts of carbohydrates/sugars, and electrolytes. People who exercise, especially in the Arizona heat, need to replace water on a regular basis. However, experts indicate that, except for those who are vigorously active, special sports drinks are not necessary — water does the job.

Books are written to help readers change their perspective on life, to go after their dreams, and to help shape us all to become the people we are going to ultimately become someday. They are written to help us learn about the past, give us insight to current events, and to prepare us for the future. When children are given a book, they are given a key to another world that will help expand their mind and start to show them what their interests are. And what better place to exercise their creativity than by that of a bookstore.

In fact, Arizona is home to nearly 70 AAA Four and Five Diamond lodging properties alone. And, as the temperatures rise, room rates often plummet, making a stay at one of these luxurious resorts a bargain.
