    On one of my first days here at the Wells Reserve at Laudholm, I was given a very simple task by my supervisor: familiarize yourself with the exhibit areas.  As the sunlight illuminated the office floor and the cool breeze rushed through my window, as if beckoning me to go outside for a walk, staying indoors was the exact opposite of the interesting afternoon I had in mind.  Reading displays and interpretive signs for hours seemed incredibly boring.

How much would that be worth to you? What would you pay for this wonder drug? $100? $1,000?

    Well, it’s not for sale. Actually, it’s free, it’s legal, and you’ve already got plenty at home.
