Happy Father’s Day!

By |June 18th, 2016|

So often this day is missed, unlike ‘Mother’s Day’ which is always celebrated.

I am so grateful that my father believed in me. Thank you Dad. May you be resting in deep peace since I will not be visiting you today.

Fathers Need to be Thanked Too!

Here are some very good reasons described passionately in these quotes.

“I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong
as the need for a father’s protection.”

~ Sigmund Freud 

“What do I owe my father? Everything.”
~ Henry Van Dyke 

“One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.”
~ George Herbert

“I’m always going to love my father.”
~ Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

“Fathers are angels sent from heaven.”
~Unknown

Dad, wherever you are, you are gone
but you will never be forgotten.”
~ Conrad Hall

 Here is a fun song for all those fathers out there!

The Father’s Day Song. A funny song for Dads.

Happy Chinese New Year!

By |January 30th, 2014|

Happy New Year in 2015!
May your year be filled with gentleness and peace

goat

According to Chinese astrologers:

Each year (starting from Chinese New Year) is associated with an animal sign, occurring in a 12-year cycle. For example 2015 is a year of the Goat.

  • Lucky Colors: brown, red, purple
  • Lucky Numbers: 2, 7
  • Lucky Flowers: carnation, primrose
  • Year of Birth: 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027

Sheep (goat, or ram) is among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times, people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and skin to keep warm. The white cute creature often reminds people of beautiful things.

Happy New Year 2014!

May the year of the Wood Horse gallop you into prosperity and good health.

According to Chinese astrologers:

This year of the Wood Horse is promising to be a year of extremes. Be ready for adventure and expect the unexpected.  There will be fast victories, and surprising romance. It is a great year for travel distant places off the beaten track.

The horse gallops quickly in its year; you want to be sure to be galloping in the direction of your choice. If you are not 100% sure, then don’t do it. That said you have to act fast in a Horse year not procrastinate.

Did you know that Chinese New Year is a spring festival?  That’s right spring!  Hard for those of us in subzero temperatures to comprehend. It begins on the second new Moon after Winter Solstice every year.

Celebrations begin this year on Friday January 31 and continue until February 15, when the moon is brightest.

Find a celebration near you to join in on the fun.

That’s Randy as the small baby with his mom, sister and brother.

Today it is Mother’s Day in North America and many other countries.

Some countries have already had Mother’s Day and other countries will have in later. Mother’s Day in Russia is on the last Sunday in November and in Argentina it is the third Sunday in October.

Still every day we can be grateful for our mother; she is why we are here.

Saving Water for the Environment – Past, Present & Hopefully the Future

Earth Day Special

by Carla Janzen

As a child I remember our family being very thrifty with water. I have great memories of going to my Grandmother’s house in the 50’s. Bath night was quite a ritual of events. My Mom and Aunt’s would pump water at the kitchen sink, heat it up on the stove and haul it to the big ole claw legged tub. We had a rotation of youngest to oldest and I was often the winner of first place. With each new person bathing more hot water was added to the tub. At the end of the evening the water was hauled out to water the garden, trees or the ditch.

Diana reveals some of her difficult health story….

By |September 13th, 2010|

Eating Green, Clean and Lean E-book will focus on the 7 principles of health. Principle #1 - Eat Real Whole Food Diana’s health decline began early in life as she was often fed junk food as a child. She only recognized that fact after many years of suffering mysterious health challenges through most of her adult life.

E-Book Survey Questions and Results

By |September 6th, 2010|

What is YOUR Main Health Challenge?

Survey Questions: 

We are VERY close to finishing the first of our long awaited e-book in our series 'Eating Green, Clean and Lean' with Real Food information and recipes.

We will be releasing it soon, but before we do we need to ask you a couple of questions if you haven't already done so.
 
Would you help us out?
 
You can answer the questions here, (and get a little more information on the e-book) by following this link:  E-Book Survey

 
 
Survey Results: (one day later)

We are appreciating all the responses we have received so far from the survey.  Thank you all. They were both informative and heart warming. One kind person even corrected my spewwing spelling!
 
Below are the results to the first question. It summarizes the responses from just from a few hours after we sent the survey out. We will be updating this as we get more responses.
 
 
Time seems to be one of the most obvious problems with eating better.
 
Just so you know – ALL the recipes in our e-book are meant to be simple and fast but Diana is going to review them – just to be sure.
 

"I wish I had the time, recipe skills and knew the principles of healthy eating that I now have when I was managing a large business in London, England 25 years ago.  In my busy-ness I did not take the time to cook for myself or eat well.  My whole life crashed. It took me 10 years to get my health back."  Diana

Being PREPARED is an issue Diana will be dealing with more fully in our second e-book.  It will be more like a cooking boot-camp but this first one will prepare the way

Is this your biggest roadblock to eating better?  You can leave your comments below.  Below is also the results to the second question…..

  
 
Again the responses are very interesting.  We put in the "Reading Real Food posts" choice – as a joke but as you can see many people thought it was important. It's great to know this info is making a difference!
 
We also had a lot of 'other' comments. They ranged from eating garden and local fresh produce to eating concentrated herbal foods. I liked this one.
I am none of these, but want to be!
 
We will be reviewing the complete list later.  We wanted to also thank […]
