Your Ho-Ho-Holiday Spirit Action Plan By Marilynn Preston   Here comes  the December dilemma: Am I going to enjoy this holiday season or not? We all have obstacles to overcome: too little time; too little money; too much commercial merrymaking. And that’s not to mention the nightly news! And still, dear reader, we have a […]

8 Fun Ways to Make Yourself Completely Miserable By Marilynn Preston A smiling  and enthusiastic fan of the column introduced herself to me the other day in Sarasota, Florida, waving a golden oldie from several years ago. “I loved this one so much, I still have it,” she said, “and I made copies to send […]

It’s Q&A Time

Because Personal Well-Being Is So Personal By Marilynn Preston As some of you know, I’ve written a book called “All is Well: The Art {and Science} of Personal Well-Being.” It was published in late April, and in August it became an Amazon best-seller. Yippee. I can’t really explain how we earned that status, but there’s […]

True, False or Wildly Misleading? By Marilynn Preston Normally, reporting  on the art and science of happiness makes me smile. Why? Because happiness turns out to be a learnable skill, unlike, in my case, navigating Facebook. Not every one of us will live a happy life, and none of us can be happy every moment, […]

6 Ways to Spread Your Wings By Marilynn Preston In the run-up to Thanksgiving, I want to remind you that a holiday celebration is what you make it. If you lard it with stress and the need for perfection, you’ll wind up with heartburn even worse than what you get from too much of Aunt […]

As seasons change, so can we By Marilynn Preston Autumn is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not just the oversized taffy apples. I’m talking crispy cool days that call for turtlenecks and yoga tights, a seasonal shift to fading colors and falling leaves, great sales on outdoor furniture. “Every leaf speaks […]

The skinny on low-fat, no-fat foods By Marilynn Preston Even smart people still think that eating low- or no-fat foods is a healthy way to lose weight. It’s not true. Yes, we were led to believe it was true for many years, and during those low-fat, no-fat years the obesity rate in America skyrocketed. Why? First, because […]

This is for the men out there… sorry ladies By Rocco Castellano Normally I try to get something in that both genders can relate to, but this time, ladies, you’re shit out of luck… you’ll probably be able to take some nuggets from this piece, but that’s all. Call me a misogynist, if you must. […]

bloodwork

Say ahhhh, cough and…happy birthday By Rocco Castellano Maybe I’m just getting a little more sensitive in my old age… But when I talk to people about juicing my own oranges for, you know, fresh-squeezed orange juice, squeezing my own lemons to make fresh-squeezed lemonade, making my own ice cream and growing my own fruits […]

Putting the ‘mix’ in mixed martial arts By Rocco Castellano This issue is always a very strange one for me. Being a hyper masculine, Christian, old school tough guy that loves every inch of a women, writing for the gay community is really a strange phenomenon … it just doesn’t come natural to me. If […]

WTF: Genetically modified mosquitoes By Rocco Castellano This week’s column is going to sound like it’s coming right out of an Alex Jones report. For all you people living under a rock, he’s a very popular conspiracy theory radio host. A few months back, I read a column on the Zika Virus. I have to […]

Soy

Estrogen: the enemy among us By Rocco Castellano About a year ago, I wrote a column called “Soy Meets World” that was basically a wild rant against the pieces of s–t that allow this so-called nutrient to invade every crevice of our food supply.

Your new friend cholesterol By Rocco Castellano This week I’m giving you a two-part column that relates to cholesterol. They are both very deceptive entities that pretty much got away with murder, literally and figuratively. For years I’ve been telling anyone who would listen that cholesterol wasn’t the problem … the idiot doctors that were […]

Harmful if swallowed By Rocco Castellano Every now and then I get a wild hair up my ass to go and check the local water utilities “water quality” report. One, because I know that water is an essential part of a body’s cellular structure and keeping hydrated is just a good idea. And two, because […]

One tooth at a time By Marsha Bonhart “All I want for Christmas … “ Completing that popular little ditty is a request for two missing front teeth by the time Christmas comes. It can get tough when any word using the letter “s” sounds like a “whithpering whithle.” You never realize the great role […]
