Dark Chocolate Treats!

Not too many people can say they don’t like a chocolate treat from time to time.  I know I enjoy a small piece of dark chocolate once in a while.  I usually break off a square from a top quality organic dark chocolate bar in the afternoon slump and enjoy it with my afternoon green […]

Hair Care

There are so many commercial brands of shampoo, conditioner, gels, mousses, pomades, sprays, colors etc. Are they safe?  This is a good question.  I will try and answer that in a few paragraph’s. My answer to this question is “I would say that most commercial conventional hair products are questionably safe.” I gave up on […]

Kiwi Fruit

The KIWIFRUIT, also known as the Chinese Gooseberry, and named after a New Zealand bird that is small, brown and fuzzy, is one of my favourite fruits.  You will find it available in most grocery stores.  It’s nutritious and a beautiful work of art on the inside. It adds such flair to a big bowl […]
