How Many Do You Really Need?

Fruits and vegetables contain vital nutrients and fiber for protection against many illnesses and disease. Eating the daily recommended amounts helps to ensure optimal health.

Be Brave For a Friend Who Suffers

Being brave for a friend who suffers the loss of a child, either through miscarriage or a stillbirth is holy work. How, though?

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things – Or Is It?

Cancer. I profoundly hate that six letter word. It conjures fear, loss and uncertainty. There’s not one nice thing I can say about it. It devours monetary resources. It mocks future dreams and plans.

A Somber Reminder to Never Forget

Tuesday, September 11, 2001 In the wake of all that has happened to the collective us in the last month, there is so much we’ll never be able to forget. To those who fight the good fight, to those who step up when times are unimaginable, to those who love in the face of terror, […]

Are You Considering a Smart Heart Rate Watch?

Do you use a smart heart rate watch, or are you considering purchasing one? Up until now, my method of keeping track of my heart rate has been the simple and effective method of being able to talk though a workout. Or sing through one. This from one who is pretty much tone deaf. ~poor […]
