At this time of year we are bombarded with lists that tell us in easy steps how to achieve our health goals.  Sometimes these quick “how-to” articles just bring out the rebel in me and I feel it’s time to take inaction.  The comfy chair beckons and the following ...

Tuesday 20 December 2011 . (1)

Tweet“Chanukah”, otherwise known as “The Festival of Lights” or the “Feast of What-IS-The-Correct-Spelling-Anyway?” and sometimes as the “Holiday of How-Will-The-Newscaster-Pronounce-It-This-Year?” is observed at this time of year by many Jews world-wide.  It commemorates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem after the Maccabees hard-won fight for their religious freedom in the 2nd Century BCE.

Quali-Tea Time

Tuesday 6 December 2011 . (2)

TweetI am most decidedly a coffee drinker.  Each morning, my dear husband brings a good cup of java to my bedside.   I know that makes him sound very sweet and thoughtful (and, in fact, he is) but really, he does it for self-preservation.  He puts it down and then backs away slowly and quietly.

Cocoa Nuts!

Tuesday 29 November 2011 . (2)

TweetI’ve had a love-affair with chocolate for as long as I can remember.  When I was very little, my parents’ European friends would bring over foil-wrapped creations that looked like ladybugs or miniature umbrellas.

TweetMy husband is a self-professed chilli-head.   That is to say he’s very happy when he’s eating food that makes him sweat, burns his mouth and turns his face bright red.  As his dinner companion, the show is amusing but for my part, I’ll just remain a spectator.  You see, I am a chilli-wimp.  .

TweetGuest Blogger Whitney Ross-Barris shares her fear of cooking         I have given birth. As a singer and actor, I have performed for thousands of people. I have walked across a swaying rope bridge, 30 metres above violently crashing surf below. I have played guitar naked at a party full of my. Continue Reading…

Wait, what was my blog title again?

Tuesday 11 October 2011 . (1)

TweetThe first thing I had to do before sitting down to write this blog about forgetfulness is to check if I’d already covered this subject in a previous posting.  Really, I honestly didn’t remember.  Sometimes I think my brain is just swiss cheese and then I realize in talking to others that I am not.

Weapons of Mass Reduction

Tuesday 4 October 2011 . (0)

TweetIt would be lovely if we were all happy with the way we look but, let’s face it, even some of the people celebrated for their beauty have what they would consider “flaws” which they work hard to cover up.   Open the pages of any celebrity magazine and you will find that the red.
