So, there's a major winter storm coming our way. It looks like it will rain on gardening plans, folks will have to face the wind in their finest outfits when attending events, and the storm will cover spring fever symptoms with snow.

Keep up on the storm via Updraft, MPR's Weather blog.

Live chat with author Laura Flynn at 11a CT

Posted at 10:00 AM on April 10, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Post your question for Laura Flynn, author of "Swallow the Ocean." The memoir sounds intense:

Author Laura Flynn writes of her at times luminous, at times agonizing experiences growing up with a mother going gradually insane. Her new book is called "Swallow the Ocean."

Flynn's mother suffered from schizophrenia at a time when the disease was not as well known, and authorities were reluctant to split children from their mothers.

Flynn appears on Midmorning today from 10 - 11 a.m. CT and will then join the live chat for 30 minutes. Share your question early!

Discussing 'At Your Cervix'

Posted at 4:29 PM on April 10, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Euan Kerr at Movie Natters blogged that the documentary 'At Your Cervix' comes to town. I'm really interested in the reaction to this film, because Kerr notes,

"I talked to Goddard this morning about why she began began developing the project and what she hopes will happen with the film once it's completed later this year.

She says she realizes it's not likely to get a full cinematic release, but she thinks it will have a life on the festival circuit, and then as a teaching tool. She thinks it could be particularly useful in ethics classes."

Why ethics classes? Earlier in the blog entry Kerr reveals, "Shockingly, many medical personnel learn the procedure by practicing on women sedated for some other procedure. Often these patients have no idea they are being used for medical training, and never find out."
