Will Decaf Be My "Gateway Drug?"
The strange part about my difficulty giving up caffeine is that I didn't start drinking coffee until adulthood. Then, I never really loved the taste. (I don't drink soft drinks with caffeine.) And there has never been any more than a small mu... Read more

Fat Sick and Almost Dead (a movie) And, To Juice or Not to Juice?
Today I watched the documentary by Aussie Joe Cross about his travels while talking to people about their eating habits. He started juicing and his success is impressive. He's also impacted others significantly. If you get a chance to watch ... Read more

When I recently went back for some acupuncture treatments, I smiled when the graduating acupuncture practitioner/student asked that question. "Sure, as long as I get the proceeds if you use it in an ad campaign," I joked.
Seriously, they t... Read more
My New Walking Poles
For the past year or so, I've been looking at walking poles online and pricing them. Last year on SP, I posted a blog asking if anyone uses them when they walk and only a couple responded yes.
