SHAME ON YOU, Weight Watchers.

Have you heard? Weight Watchers (now calling themselves “WW”) have hit a new low. They’ve rolled out a diet for children between the ages of 8 and 17. CHILDREN.

When I Was Dumb.

We are allowed to believe anything we choose to believe. That’s the power of belief. It’s up to each of us, and it needs no logic, no supporting evidence, no tangible experience. We are allowed to choose to believe whatever it is we choose to believe. The trouble comes when we don’t realize we have…

Calling All EARTHLINGS.

We are Earthlings. Not Canadians. Not Americans. Not Chinese, Indian or Australian. We are Earthlings. We ALL belong to ONE planet; ONE earth. To each other. We ALL belong HERE.

Easy, Tasty DINNER In A SNAP!

A few weeks ago, I shared this recipe on my Facebook page. Roger and I had just returned home from traveling, and we hadn’t yet done a full grocery shop. He opened the fridge and said, “Should I go out and grab something? We have no food….” I told him to get out of the…
