Fruit smoothies

Blueberry Ginger Smoothie

  • 1 banana
  • 1 handful of blueberries (fresh or frozen organic)
  • A nub of ginger root
  • 1 medjool date
  • A little honey (if blueberries are tart)
  • Herb tea or plain water (hot in winter, cold in summer)
  • 1 tbsp of Isabgol (psyllium seed husks)

Blend for extra long to get a really smooth texture! You can up the quantities (2 bananas, 2-3 handfuls of blueberries) but I’m always surprised at how tasty and satisfying the simple version is.

Usually I have a blender of Green Smoothie in the morning and a fruit smoothie at night. Scroll down for more smoothie options. My favourite is the Wicked Nightcap 🙂 Read more…

Green smoothies

After reading Victoria Boutenko’s Green for Life, my family broke away from the “rule” of keeping veggies & fruits separate. Eating is very individual, so give this a try and see whether it suits you. Everything mentioned below must be organically grown so you get the high level of minerals and vitamins only present in fresh organic fruits & veggies.
Basic Green Smoothie

  • Put a glass of pure (structured) water into the blender.
  • Add 1 organic banana. (I put at least 2, but it makes a larger quantity)
  • Add some other fruit – could be an apple or a “wheel” of pineapple (or both – makes a larger quantity).
  • [Some fruits I would not put in: melon – eat alone; and citrus, because it doesn’t mix with banana.]
  • Then add some green leafy veggies: a leaf of chard and/or kale, a little fresh parsley, a stalk or 2 of celery.
  • Depending on the time of year, you can use a variety of all sorts of other veggies Read more…

New slant for eyes

I’m receiving some Resonance Repatterning sessions on Vision, and my practitioner passed on a couple of suggestions from a well-known eye doctor in India: Raise the foot of your bed. He also suggests lying down on the slanted bed for 10-15 minutes after working for a couple of hours on a computer.

Start with a couple of inches, using sturdy blocks under the foot of the bed. The idea is to gradually increase the slant, until the foot of the bed is raised 30 degrees off the floor. That’s the equivalent of 24″ in a 6-foot bed. Wow! Go slow.

Caution: probably not advisable for people with high blood pressure, high pressure in the eyes, etc. In any case, start with just a couple of inches and see how you feel. I’m up to 6.5″ and it feels good.

A whole lot of hope

Last October Howard Kamarata lost 3 fingers of his left hand in a carpentry accident. Then a friend, Casey Barrett, mentioned a video he’d seen about a South African guy who had also lost his fingers.

The video told the story of how he had used a 3D printer and collaborated with an American to produce plans for fabricating prosthetic parts. They posted the files online for anyone to use.

Casey is a design engineer. Together with Dan Perlmutter of Graphic Design Services in Scottsdale, he, Howard and Perlmutter used the files to produce their own prosthesis, giving Howard a workable hand and a whole lot of hope – all for $200.

What a hug!

Look at this gorgeous hug from a grateful chimpanzee ––151638566.html?vp=1


…A week later I got inspired and spent the afternoon watching Beauty and the Beasts

preceded by Into the Wild – 3 segments of 60 Minutes on the great migration, the forest elephants …and the chimpanzees


Quite a lady!


I thought the “Skyfall” soundtrack version was …great, but Adele’s Oscar performance, Feb 2013, is stunning. How beautiful she looks, too!

(For a contrast, here’s the Red Army Choir doing a cover of “Skyfall” just before the opening of the Sochi Games, 2014 – wow.)

And – the story behind the composing of “Skyfall.”

youtube has 21 – some beautiful songs, including “Hiding my heart” and “Lovesong.”

Then “Don’t you remember” –

where to stop!

Remember the Beatles…

Can you believe it – I missed that historic Ed Sullivan Show (we grew up without TV 🙂

But here it is, such fun!

Kayden + rain

Adorable – toddler’s reaction to her first rainfall!

A lovely reminder of how we once felt… and what a capacity for joy and appreciation we have  within us!
