    Service Dog Welfare - Experts in Service Dog industry express concern.

    in Pets

    Experts in the service dog industry, Jeanne Hampl and Darcie Boltz share their perspective on a family highlighted with Matt Lauer who have a service dog for their small child.  Can we expect a young child to know how to properly handle a dog by herself?  During the interview the dog showed signs of stress that the general public wouldn't recognize, but had the dog industry ignite - like panting and yawning.  This interview brings up a larger topic of service dog welfare that gets lost in the "feel-good" stories, like this, that get ignorantly run in the media all the time.  My question is:  WHAT ABOUT THE DOG?

    Yawning and snoring your way to illness, not kidding.

    in Health

    Remember the yellow pages? That's how we used to find people to collaborate with. Now we go to networking events known as meetings. Two new groups have filled a necessary hole in dentistry and medicine. 


    The Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry


    Academy of Applied Myofunctional Sciences


    Listen in as I bring you up to date on how and why sleep is the hottest thing going. Why suddenly are things so focused on sleep and why is there an epidemic of sleep apnea? Soft food, removing teeth for orthdontic reasons and allergies are contributing to smaller faces.

    Children's Corner - The Yawning Rabbit River Chronicle

    in Family

     The Yawning Rabbit River Chronicle by J. L. Kimmel & David Ceccarelli
    This magnificent, three-part tale opens in a once-idyllic forest where the creatures fear for their survival amid a drought so long-standing that none recall ever seeing a river and the dangers of hungry hunters. So desperate are they that a lightning-fast jackrabbit thief undertakes a quest to find the mythological river goddess, Violet, and race her for the river. As he departs, the forest librarian owl reads Violet s story aloud from a very special book. Part two occurs many years later on the estate of absurdly conspicuous consumers, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, the latter of whom hates rain and nature sounds. Their children are twins purchased at a bargain price the loud, aggressive Ash, deemed boyish by parents who discount the sensitive, thoughtful Dusty. A mishap with the past makes Ash evil and infects the Miller house with soul crawlers, parasites of hate that thrived where evil lurked. Twenty years later, in the adjoining township, part three brings thirteen-year-old Nub Begley, a farmer boy, and female classmate Nil Turner.  This story will make life-long readers of youth not previously committed to reading.
     
    Doting adults will do well to gift copies to beloved youth. Adults who take the time to explore these pages will be reminded of the important titles of their youth, the ones that originally hooked them on reading.

    LIVE! with Cathi---Laughter, the Elixir of Life!

    in Fitness

    LAUGH YOUR WAY TO HEALTH AND HAPPINESS FOREVER!


    LAUGHTER, a stress buster.  Painful emotions produce stress chemicals in the body.  Nature has given us natural cathartic processes to re-balance those chemicals...laughing...crying...sweating and yawning.


    Our bodies are a triangle, STRUCTURE, CHEMICAL AND ELECTRICAL, EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL... A TRIAGE.


    'HUMOR'   is intellectual, a way of viewing the world.  We view 'funny things' differently.


    LAUGHTER is UNIVERSAL.  The process involves every major system in the body.  It's spiritual, physiological and emotional.


    STAY TUNED...


    LAUGHTER does not need...etc.


    Health benefits of laughing...etc.


    LAUGHTER exists for its own sake...etc.


    LAUGHTER causes our brains to...etc.


    Ages 90+ attribute their longevity to...etc.
