    Laughter is the best medicine.  We had planned to interview Debra Norwood, also known as The Laughter Lawyer.  She was going to tell us all about her amazing oppertunity to meet Patch Adams, the amazing medical doctor and clown.  Due to technical difficulties - she was not available.


    But check out our show - we have great tips on Gernal wellness.  The average person spends $8,000 to $9,000 per person each on medical expences.  That is a huge amount.  Patch Adams had a view that medical care should be free.

    Explore the California Coast and the Pacific Coast Highway.  There are many beautiful things to see both natural and manmade along the amazing California coastline.  This is where we spent our anniversary and we've come back to see several times.  There is so much to do and see and explore.


    Highway 1 - the Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most scenic highways with a lot of diversity and things to do along the way.  Bring a jacket even in the middle of summer as that nice Pacific ocean breeze can be chilling.  We find tide pools and pine trees and great restaraunts along the way.

    Get Real! with Mark and Kally - Kids and Summer, Play and Stimulate Brain Cells

    in Lifestyle

    Summer is the perfect time to play and stimulate new brain cells.  You can learn a new skill, get involved in a hobby, do art projects that take a few days, and explore the world around you.  Tune in for some tips and ideas that will not only entertain your kids, but give them options to build their brain and distract them from too much electronic time.


    Studies show that the more time children spend in structured, parent-guided activities, the worse their ability to work productively towards self-directed goals. They need time to challenge themselves and figure out what they want and how to do it.  We were always slow to completely direct our children's activites.  We saw more growth with them having more control over their free time.

    Get Real! with Mark and Kally - Great Places to Visit, San Francisco

    in Travel

    San Francisco is a wonderuful place to visit full of diversity and culture.  It is the most densely settled large city in the state of California.  It was founded in 1776 when Spanish colonist established Presidio of San Francisco at the Golden Gate and MIssion San Francisco de Asis.  


    San Francisco has seen fires and earth quakes that have destroyed much of the city and then rebuilt.  


    This beautiful city has nice cool summer, steep hills, beautiful architecture, and little communities like China and Little Italy.  It is home to major companies like Levi Straus, Dropbox, Weebnle, Yelp, Pinterest, and even Twitter.


    It is one of my favorite cities to visit for the food, inluding the best clam chowder, delicious sourdough bread to garlic ice cream and some amazing Chinese food.  The landmarks are beautiful and the natural beauty in San Fransisco and the sourrounding area is beautiful.

    Get Real With Mark and Kally - An American Living in China, Angela Efros

    in Lifestyle

    Our daughter, Angela is a brilliant person.  She is just as comfortable diving into chemistry or physics as she is singing and performing on stage.  She was debating between majoring in physics, math, business, or theater. But we raised her to have fun and school was part of that and all the sciences and math were just as fun as theater.  I urged her to find a job or an opportunity somewhere to figure out what she wanted to do finish a degree in. Next, she announces that she is going to China for 6 months to teach English.  That was 4 years ago.


    Since moving to China, Angela has become fluent in Mandarin and she will share some of her secrets of learning this difficult language with us.  She is in a masters program for Chinese Travel and Tourism at a Chinese university.  She performs all over China and has even been on Chinese TV several times.  See what Angela is up to on her website.  


    Angela has met some incredible people, learned a whole new culture, and is having a grand adventure.

    Many people deal with short term or chronic anxiety.  Get some easy tips to help you manage anxiety and information on tools that can help you get to the root of anxiety.


    Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about an event, person or situation especially where the outcome is uncertain.  There are several types of anxiety disorders.


    Anxiety is a normal human emotion that we all experience at some time in our life.  But many people can experience excessive anxiety to debilitating anxiety that interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life.


    That are many things you can do to get relief from anxiety and prevent future episodes.  I, Kally, used to experience regular episodes of anxiety.  But changing my lifestyle and working with an alternative health care practitioner, I no longer live with abnormal anxiety.
