Weleda Skin Food

I have probably recommended this in the past, but it's worth a reminder.  This cream is wonderful for it's healing powers.


I had a cracked heel, just one little, itty bitty crack, and it made my life miserable.  I applied Skin Food multiple times per day...and it is finally healing.  The problem with a cracked heel is walking...it never really has a chance to close because of all the pressure being expended every time we move.


Personally, I don't like this product for hand cream unless there is a huge problem.  Then only on the top of hands...to me it's too thick for the palm of hands..

Mavala Cuticle Cream

Quite simply the best!  It's a bit pricier than the others, but lasts forever and truly works!  (the others don't)


About $14.00!  Definitely not a drugstore brand, this can be had on Amazon.com or Ulta.com..

Baby Boomers and Diets...

And I don't mean eating less...although maybe I do.  I don't know about you, but I don't know if I can go on eating and buying meat.  It just seems so old fashioned to me...the menu's in restaurants and the meals I plan.  Again, there seems to be a seismic change in food in the US and possibly for the benefit of it's citizens. 


Get used to going to smaller markets with fresher, local foods (we hope) and Whole Foods.  I beg to differ but it is not Whole Paycheck as many folks think.  Unless you are buying from the wasteland that is the center of  a grocery chain, well then yes, it's expensive.  I call these pits in chains fake food.  Whenever I eat 'fake food' my body has a chat with me.  I notice that when my family does have meat as a centerpiece I take one bite and fill in the rest with vegetables.  Anyway, I believe the times they are achangin' food wise.


Below is a cool website that delivers food to your door if you can't get to the FRESH store.  I have heard good things...if not just for some new menus options, check it out.

PS if you have travelled to Europe you will notice a difference in their food....They have steep regulations.  The US does not.

Haircare - Gilt, Groupon and Yelp







For 30 years I have been going to the same hair stylist, who I love.  But now that I work in the city, and my hair is not a precision cut, I am trying out new stylists...There are so many to choose from on Newbury Street, Boston, and there is quite a competition for clients according to Gilt and Groupon.  So onward I go to try out more people. When I started chatting about this, apparently it's what lots of people do.  If you have a hairstyle that just needs a trim and a bit of layering, why not!?  Let's face it, $39.00 is a bit easier on the pocketbook that $100 per cut.  Also, at the end of the day, I ask you, I wonder why my hairstylist of decades never cut me a break?  Marketing!!  (I'm just a bit slow on the uptake)  What started me on the quest was the fact that one of my colleagues came in after going to one of the fancy salons on Newbury Street, and since the hairstylist knew her sister, he told her he would cut her hair for the Groupon price.  What!!!!!  I quit right there and then (my hairdresser)
