Lighten Up for Spring - by Christina Pirello

Truly warm days of spring and summer are a distant dream at the moment. The days are still cold and grey, the nights bordering on frigid…but there is a shift in the energy around us. You can feel it if you really pay attention. The sun feels a touch warmer; the buds more visible on tree branches; the ice seems a little less rigid and just a wee bit more inclined to melt.    Read more

Where Else Are You Going to Live? by Kenneth Dill

A wise man once said, “If you don’t take care of your body…where else are you going to live?”  No, it wasn’t some comedian trying to get a laugh.  It was Robert Pirello, and wiser words have never been spoken. He knows from personal experience as a man who has been to the pinnacle of fitness, running multiple marathons.  He then faced severe osteoporosis with his body literally crumbling beneath him.  And now, through years of research and diligence, he has regained his efficiently functioning body and once again lives in a healthy and happy body.  Read more

Living Well is the Best Revenge - by Christina Pirello

Who doesn’t want to live a happy, healthy life?  But who’s got the time?  We are tired, overwhelmed, struggling to just get through the day.  Well, there’s a better way.  It’s time to take back responsibility for our own health with freedom.  What does that mean? I have come to realize that as we have grown more detached from nature, we have grown more detached from our intuitive knowledge about making peace with ourselves.  Living in harmony with our surroundings has become nothing more than a cliché that we bandy about without understanding--or knowing how good it feels to actually live that way.  Read more

Cook Your Way to Better Sex - by Christina Pirello

Women (and men) love, love, love to be cooked for.  H-m-m-m-m-m-m-m…a problem.  Men hate to cook, generally speaking. And for women, cooking has gotten such a bad rap…it’s a lot of work; it’s messy; it’s a lot of work…and it’s a lot of work. But here’s the thing. If you take the time to learn a few tricks of the kitchen, you can work it to your advantage. If you cook, even simple no-brainer meals, your partner will overlook your tummy, muffin top, lack of ambition or any of your other ‘special gifts.’  Trust me on this…I am a woman…who loves to be cooked for.  Read more

Heavy Weather - by Steve Rockstein

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son ?
And where have you been my darling young one ?
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.  -Bob Dylan, 1962  Read more

Keep Your Resolution To Stay Fit - By Ken Dill

Not enough people in this country exercise regularly. I know that may sound like a bold statement, but I’m sure it’s true.  I don’t have the exact percentages at my fingertips, but until it’s 100% it’s not enough! Exercise is not optional for healthy living. Just like eating and sleeping, it is an absolute necessity.    Read more
