Reading is a great pastime for me, and right now I am learning about the enteric nervous system which is that part of the nervous system that regulates the entire digestive tract. The book is called ‘The Second Brain’; it is by Michael D. Gershon, MD.
Sometimes I run across a recipe that I just have to try. If I'm lucky, it turns out to be wonderful and worthy of sharing. Some of you may be familiar with Ellie Deaner. Ellie is a local cook who runs classes and seminars, has written multiple cookbooks, and puts out a monthly e-newsletter.Her most recent newsletter contained such a recipe -- "Barley Salad with Feta and Dried Cranberries". This is really yummy, sticks to your ribs, and is healthy! Seconds, anyone?

Well...It's officially time for a new computer for me! Today I spent 5 long unproductive hours dealing with computer issues on my 2 computers. My 4 year old desktop kept freezing up and my 3 year old laptop kept crashing. It's time for a new NICE machine!
Q: What can you do “ASAP!” to strengthen your CORE?? A: Pull your belly button in!! --- Pulling your belly button IN towards your spine, consciously engages the 1st of the 3 muscles which make up your CORE. To begin the process of strengthening, take note that your ‘Belly Button Muscle’ is tucked IN during exercise, while walking, while working, while driving or while watching TV… It’s a small thing to do, but it’s a good start!!

A famous quote my Alfred E. Newman, of my favorite childhood magazine MAD. As I said in my last blogpost, my mantra is "every day is Monday". Isn't it the truth? Every day I strive to be better than the day before, in my health, my family, and my relationships. While it's easy to dwell on the "should've, could've, would've", I push myself to forget regrets and move forward. Which brings me to discuss my current situation.
