Balance is a challenge for me, and Yoga is my ticket to a good night's sleep, without a doubt
When you go travel with someone, you really get to know them, in a way you couldn't while back home, in the comfort of a world of familiarity.    Coming here with Dan has been a blessing.   How blessed to be confronted, and challenged.  I surprise myself wi...

Whatever it takes for a good night's sleep is worth it. I have to power walk every day or it just doesn't happen!

I am so grateful for this article because I have so many beloved who are practicing and devout Christians, and there is so much opposition and negative claims about the inherent danger to one's Christian faith if one engages in Yoga practice for health and well being.   This piece, authored by Doireann Fristoe back in Oct of 2010 speaks to all of the different aspersions and derision made against Yoga.  

And she closes with how to practice safely, with discernment and prayer, so as to "do exactly as Christ commanded the paralytic in the Gospel of Matthew:  be healed, take up your mat and go home.

+Ron Morales  There is a difference between being spiritually faithful, loving, peaceful, compassionate, and courageous and being blindly dogmatic and absolute.   Please forgive but I do not care to hear more of your reasons for avoiding yoga.  You have shared enough with me on this matter and I don't care to hear more about your opinion on my share about Yoga.  I shall leave what you have shared, but that's enough for now.  Thank you for taking the time to write.   Namaste.

Finally, after too long, I'm enjoying everything I can about this place, for the rest of the time I'm here
Over the past few days, I’ve decided to make going out during the day, every day a habit.   I have taken to riding the bike over to Phillie’s Sports Grill & Bar for a cappuccino and a mango shake, and for two days this week, some hard boiled eggs, or today,...

When you think you messed up because your most beloved don't respond, you might find it's not about you. Stay your course, and keep on loving. It's important.
Do you divorce early on as soon as you realize you are not compatible, or do you hold on, and channel the way the Indians do it, where they chose the partner for their children, based on their estimations of values and character, and norms?      If you stuc...

Host of Gadfly Radio with Martha and CalWatchDog
Introduction
I ascribe to the principles of liberty and limited government. Strong property rights are fundamental for an individual’s liberty, social and financial stability and security.

It’s wrong that our government can take our property, and then turn it over to a private developer or individual. That’s stealing.

Education is the gateway to knowledge, wisdom and freedom. We need competitive and accountable education enterprise; not the ossified monopoly of the public school establishment we endure today.

Energy policy shouldn't kill our economy and wipe out opportunity and savings of small business owners, the middle class and the poor. Energy policy shouldn't bury our vast wealth of natural energy resources. Bio fuels use almost as much energy to produce as what they deliver and raise food prices in the process.

I oppose the growing size of government and arrogant, wasteful, petulant taking and spending of our hard earned income and opportunity. Don’t tax us more. Don’t create and hike superfluous fees. Don’t waste our money and indebt us in order to secure government agents’ personal benefits and interests, and those of their well connected friends.
