Often, these places are loud and uncomfortable, and it … read more »

Just like your car that needs to have the oil changed, or the air filter, even the coolant — all these filters and liquids work the same way in the human body.  You may recall from your high-school science … read more »

When you haven’t seen someone like an old friend (or lover) in a long time, what do you notice first?  Not their shoes, their handbag or their clothing — you notice their face.  You notice if they look tired with bags around their eyes, or if their cheeks droop a bit around the jawline, or if their skin is either ruddy or dull-looking. Face it:  what you notice is what they look like and how they’ve aged.  Guess what — … read more »
