Referred to as the key to the whole Pacific Coast …and to think most people don’t know it even exists. To say “most people” may be an exaggeration but I don’t think it would be too far a cry from the truth as this place is so hidden—literally right under the Golden Gate Bridge. I lived in San Francisco back in the 80’s and have visited it many times thereafter but never heard of this wonderful historic site until my most recent visit during the 4th of July holiday, visiting my son, now a Bay Area resident. I...Read More
On this Father’s Day, let me just say this… Too often dads get such a bad rap. They didn’t do this when we were growing up, or they did too much of that.

They’re typically not going to...Read More
Who knew humming had such therapeutic attributes? Before I show you how, consider this: All the activities of the brain and the nervous system depend on the full functionality of the lungs. Wow.

With permission, I'm re-posting this Facebook post a good friend of mine shared while in South America. Adopting a nice custom from Argentina and Uruguay: Yerba Mate tea in a Mate Gourd made from glass and steel and a bombilla (metal straw)! This tea comes from the South American rainforest evergreen holly tree and is great for digestion, energy, mental alertness, and is loaded with vitamins and minerals! It can also improve immune function, aid weight loss, and has anti-cancer compounds! Yerba Mate is said to have the strength of coffee, benefits of herbal tea, and euphoria of chocolate!...Read More
Would you agree we could use more Unity in our society today? Would you agree that Self-Determination leads to creations, inventions? Would you agree that Collective Work & Responsibility improves communities? Would you agree that Cooperative Economics encourages prosperity? Would you agree that having a Purpose is necessary to achieve goals? Would you agree that Creativity is a positive force towards betterment? Would you agree that Faith can move mountains? If you answered “yes” to one or all of the above, then you just ascribed to the principles of Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is a festive and meaningful holiday we celebrate...Read More
