What's Your Totem?

What's Your Totem?
What's Your Totem? by Melissa Price Have you ever had the occasion to keep noticing something? Perhaps it's an item or an animal that appears wherever you travel or whenever you visit a particular place. This phenomenon surged into my life last week at the Southern California coast. While it wouldn't be entirely unusual to view a dolphin, a seal, a sea lion, or even a shark in those waters, would it make you think if you saw only one of those species – repeatedly? How about continually? Whether I was walking, standing on the beach, or looking out from the...

A Pound of What?

A Pound of What?
A Pound of What? by Melissa S. Price, D.C, CCSP Since the holidays are fast approaching, I would be remiss if I didn't pass along some tasty tidbits to help you through the labyrinth of seasonal woes we all have to navigate. Namely, those extra pounds we tend to put on when we go from party to party, and then to those holiday meals filled with the delicacies we look forward to eating.

They’re beaten, jailed, banned from having public display, and they’re subject to a new law that forbids talking to minors about anything gay. In Russia, that’s called “Gay Propaganda.” One conservative Russian politician stated: “In no way will the law discriminate against the gay and lesbian community. It’s designed only to protect children from images and impressions that imply a gay or lesbian lifestyle is normal.” (Pausing for laughter while you ponder the ironic idiocy of that statement.) Uh-oh. What...

Whether The Weather...

Whether The Weather...
Whether the weather is cold, or whether the weather is hot; we'll be together whatever the weather, whether we like it or not. Trading comments about the weather is a common social practice, isn't it? Years ago, a native Southern Californian visited me back east in January. At the end of the day, she said she noticed how wherever we went, people consistently talked about the weather. Of course they did. It was winter! That time of year when Old Man Winter slapped us in the face to get our attention. In Southern California, why talk about the weather unless there's...
