Last week I attended a workshop, and at the beginning of the workshop we had a set of rules we were not allowed to break without consequences. The rule I remember the most was: We were not allowed to use the word "can't". If we used the word ... Read more

Well, officially it is here, even though it is going to be in the low 90's today. It is so dry that the leaves probably won't be as pretty as after a wet year. I finally got out my fall decorations today. I love putting out the pumpkins a... Read more

Last night on the news they had a story on a new affliction--gymeroxia! According to the story, going to the gym and exercising every day is a "disease". They point out that because we get used to the feel of the endorphins we need that "high" o... Read more
