Not Everything is an EVENT!!

Not Everything is an EVENT!!

I love a party. A holiday gathering, a celebration. A time set aside to honor or remember a loved one, a friend or event. Good food, libations, conversations, laughter, dancing.

Why Fitness is Foundational – Physical and Financial

Over the years I have been given the opportunity to work with many different populations of people. This has been both an education and an honor. I realize from time to time how fortunate this has been to connect with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. ‘Variety’ is a way of saying from the full strata of economics, race, culture, education, intelligence, common sense,...
