A-Snacking We Will Go
Snacking in America, possibly our favorite past time. Boy do we love to eat. Chips, candy, and other ‘junk foods’ may suit your addiction or sweet tooth, but those empty calories will do nothing for your health, energy or waistline. In a nation where junk food is so readily accessible and almost every television commercial is touting the benefits of 'snack food' in an attempt to convince and brainwash you to eat it, it’s no wonder we’ve made them so rich and they’ve made us s
Knowledge is Power?
You bet it is. And your super computer brain knows a lot. But there’s a down side you may not know about. Your super computer brain works even when you don’t. Huh? Your super subconscious brain has stored everything you’ve learned since you were born. Even the stuff that isn’t true is filed away in there. EVERYTHING!

Crystal Ball Tells All
Imagine having a crystal ball. If you could see your future, what would it look like? What if your future scared you and made you reconsider your life and the choices you make today?

New Year, Same sh#? Are You a Fringe Dweller?
The holidays have come and gone. With the next anticipated food feast some 3 months away we shift thoughts to the usual tantalizing treats. On occasion we drift, perhaps we envision spring and the glorious feast we shall partake at Easter. Yes Easter, with its traditional ham, potatoes, and all the irresistible temptations we have come to expect. Today life is back to normal. Whatever “normal” is right?
