This week I decided to put an end to ice cream and candy for awhile since my movement during the Summer is not keeping up with my calorie intake! My substitute for one meal and a snack is juice, sort of. It looks more like thick green pea soup. Naturally, The New Yorke...

Years ago I had this recurring fantasy during a rough period in my life. Closing my eyes I'd picture myself older, moving slowly back and forth in a Cracker-Barrel-style-rocker on my front porch while the birds entertained me. What I really wanted to do was fast forwar...
