A Little Inspiration, Here! My Books!

  Just to establish my credentials up front, I come from nowhere, friends.  My most intense learning experiences… and some of my most incredible failures, occurred when I lived off the grid in the rough hills of Western Wisconsin, no utilities, survivalist, sustaining myself with resources at hand. So you may have guessed that I […]

Are These Yours?

Hey, come on! Lighten up. Where I come from, lots of us wear these, especially if we are……say………over 50.  They are comfortable, double-up as shorts (at least, as ‘short’ as we’d like them to be!) and have that loosey-goosey waist band. Now, if you’re comfortable fitting into these, by all means, do. If, on the […]

Let’s Talk About Soap!

CARROLL RYGH SUMPTUOUS SOAPS! The very name sounds opulent and rich! These beautiful bars are infused with delicate fragrances, touched with a swirl of natural oils and glycerins, deepened with textured marigold and lavender petals, alive with  botanicals, milks and earth clays. It is absolutely wonderful to lather up and bathe with one of these […]

Getting Results!

What are the keys to getting fitness results, anyway? Most of us wish and hope for change on a multitude of levels. We may even pray for changes of a serious nature. But, let’s face it, friends, if we’re not willing to decide upon a plan for change, and put in the effort to make […]

Let’s Talk About Disease!

No comments? I guess, not……..ugh! No one likes to talk about disease. We just hope we won’t get one, right? However, as our bodies age,  the odds are not in our favor unless we change them.  Chances are we may come down with, particularly, a lifestyle disease.  So what’s that mean? Maybe you don’t want […]

Delores: Part 4: The Next Step

 Is medication the answer to EVERY thing? We do know that it is the answer to hypothyroidism. This discouraging disorder not only makes it virtually impossible for a woman to lose weight, but leads to a cluster- flock of other symptoms, as well. Delores’ physician discovered that she had hypothyroidism and that she also suffered from […]

So What’s the Answer to Depression? Huh?

Bet I’ve got the cure! Let’s see……..how about The Big One, resurrection of the dead? Or plenty of money? Kids that don’t screw up and embarrass us? A cure for my cancer? How about ridding the world of fibromyalgia? Personally, I like Eternal Life best. Yeah. Those cures would work for depression. Most of us […]

Down and Dirty Depression

SSorry friends, depression is a normal state of mind in many circumstances. Feeling sad and tired, wanting to sleep constantly, not enjoying social activities, eating too much or too little are all common components of normal depression. Sounds pretty uncomfortable. In fact, depression is considered an illness!  Should I take a pill and fix it? […]

Delores: Part 2

The trouble was, at times, Delores just didn’t feel well. She wasn’t really sick, she just felt…tired. That was it. At first she attributed it to being 60 years old. Sixty seemed to be on the cusp of old age. Why should she be getting older and expect to feel better? When she really thought […]
