The average life span of a woman in America is 81.2 years, while for men it’s 76.4. For women that means just 29,638 days, for men 27,886 days.

And the next Downward Dog you experience is in that Yoga class, which gets your Delicious Cycle rising up - like your mood - once again.]]> <![CDATA[Change Your Channel, Change Your Life]]> Tv channels and radio stations pick up the frequencies from broadcast towers that enable you to watch and listen to their programs. Your thoughts, which also have frequencies, get picked up in the conscious part of your mind from the Source of Thought from whence they came.

But by cool, I don’t mean, as it’s so often misinterpreted, to be uninterested and uncaring. Sadly, there are many women who’ve been wildly attracted to the so-called “cool” guys who could care less about them or much of anything else for that matter. Cool is much cooler - and ironically, warmer - than that.

I could see the future, but only way off to the side.”]]> <![CDATA[Physical check-ups & Metaphysical check-ups]]> Most good health insurance policies recommend that their policyholders see their doctors for a physical check-up on an annual basis.
