Tips for the holiday

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Here are some holiday tips I got from a seminar as holiday tradition in my place of work:

1. Health:

Juice into next year (Joe): jack la lanne Juice machine-around $100 US

walking: the best

stretching: some strength is important

Hiking: take to the woods

meditation helps training

*Watch Dan Buettner’s TED talk about how to live to be 100+.  Good health advice.

2. Family activities

Baking/cooking holiday treats

Family Movies: “It’s a wonderful life”

3. Books to recommend:
“Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease” and “The China Study” - Quoting from pf the colleages: “my only regret is I did not read these book a long time ago.
Learn to run (walk) by John Stanton

use the book “Juicing for Life” (Calbom, Keane) as a reference.  They really explain the benefits well and have some recipes for specific conditions.

It failed me from both n900 and touchpad.

Will try this out per WordPress suggestions:

I can’t upload photos/videos, I get a “Failed” error message. What do I need to do?

If you’re running WordPress 2.9.2 or later please be sure to add the following lines to your root .htaccess file:
php_value memory_limit 128M
php_value upload_max_filesize 128M
php_value post_max_size 128M

Geocaching

Monday, December 5th, 2011

This is our second trip, but the 2nd and 3rd caches. Dahlonega,  once the first gold rush town, is a small and quiet lumpkin county seat, now is full with holiday spirit. We visited gold museum, visitor center and heard Christmas carol from a chocolate shop.
