Back Away from the PB Jar!

Favorite Holiday Foods? You Can Make Them So Much Better

The Aging Process Isn't for Wimps

A friend once sent me an e-mail that included a statement, the source of which I do not know. It said: "Life is a gift. Unwrap it." In other words, try to live your life as fully and as well as you can. It's worth it, to you as well as your family and friends.
