You Can Easily Change Your Beliefs with Hypnosis

Microdermabrasion – Choosing Organic

Hanging Together

0 It turns out that there may be no such thing as a casual political conversation. The other night I asked our server in a local pub, a competent young woman, if she was registered to vote. In the ensuing exchange, she said of a certain elected official, “We sent him to Washington and he has not done anything for us.”…

Untangling Golden Chains

Time to Enjoy Your Garden

0 As October rolls around and I’ve come to terms with the fact that summer is actually over and fall is in full swing, I always feel a bit guilty that I’m actually relived.

Bear Creek Greenway – A Local Treasure

0 One of the joys of e-biking is the opportunity to remove yourself from the noise and fray of primary city streets while still being able to traverse town quickly.
