It's a world event and it's taking place in Mills River, NC. The International American Ginseng Expo is happening December 7 and 8 and it promises to be a chance to learn about ginseng and other native Appalachian plants.

Caroline Edwards says it will be a chance to have fun, discuss this very important subject, try some delicious meals made with natural ingredients and even hear from storyteller Doug Elliott and David Holt.

Only one day a year is called World Aids Day, but until this disease is eradicated, perhaps every day should be World Aids Day. For now, that's not going to happen.

This week I spoke with Pam Seikman about what WNCAP is doing to mark this saddest of days for people all over the world. Tune in to see what you can do to help fight this cruel disease.
